    I thoroughly enjoyed my time at this place. It has a captivating and aesthetically pleasing ambiance, reminiscent of a library.

    Visited the Customer Show Asia 2023 exhibition at Hall 404. Wonderful learning experience with the many booths displaying digital solutions for customer service. Freshworks introduced me to omni-channels with AI powered chatbots. Vonage touched on managing from one inbox and engage and convert customers on their preferred channels be it facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, SMS, etc. Foodbank enlightens me on their mission and vision. Zapkad spoke on digital business card. Holord impressed me with their AI avatar. There were many others. It was a one stop service platform to update oneself. on the latest development in customer service delivery.

    In the morning, one speaker touched on 'Customer First, Digital First and Continuous Improvement'. Digitalisation has found its way into customer service and it is imperative for business to be innovative and stay ahead through digital First and tapping on AI and data analyltics capability.

    The lunch was sumptuous and delicious. Excellent work by the event organiser.

    I had attended several seminars and exhibitions at Suntec City Convention Center and that at Singapore EXPO but this was my first time here for a security conference.

    Sands Convention Center is located beside the Sands Casino so it is attractive to foreign delegates who may want to try their luck at the casino. The surrounding attractions are also gorgeous: Gardens by the Bay, the Esplanade, Shenton Way, and the city's financial hub are right here.

    Singapore EXPO is remotely far not very centralized. But all three are easily accessible through public transportation. I prefer Suntec City as it is nearer my house.

    I like the christmas decoration here. Although there are several exhibition halls but they are not structurally separated. I came for the security conference at Room A but I can still venture to other exhibition halls to view their displays. I like visiting each booths to learn their products and how the products are useful to solve our work problems.

    The buffet food catered for the audience and participants is also pretty healthy and sumptuous.

    Conducive environment, good food and a lot of new knowledge to learn and update.

    Will look out for future conferences and seminars to attend here.

    The Library@Harbourfront sets the bar for what will be the library of the future looks like. It has defined and shown what a modern library is without losing the classic touch of traditional libraries. Located at 3F of Vivo city mall, formerly known as Bukit Merah Public Library it is the largest public shopping mall library in Singapore, Originally founded in 1982, it was renovated and reopened with its new modern design in 2018. As a public library access is free for visitors.

    It is divided into 3 zones: Kids, Teens and Adults. Books borrowing and returning area are located right as you enter and are self-serviced via their electronic kioks. From your left side is the kids zone which is super cool and informative. I've never been to this area but I could see that there are tons of activities, learning & play areas and most of all books which are both physical copy as well as e-books. It is really a kids friendly zone adjusting and catering to their needs so they will not feel constrained just by reading but it is a learning place where they can both read, study and have fun.

    To my right are the Teens and Adult zone and this is the biggest area. With a collection of more than 200,000 materials both physical and digital books, magazines, and newspapers. This is where I study, write and read. My go to and favorite topics are Travel, Food, Fashion and Lifestyle. Right away the Magazines as well as Travel & Recreation materials are located first which is what I like very much. The interior design and layout is brightly lit, cozy, spacious and modern yet it maintains the standard library set-up in organizing their books and other materials. I loved that they painted the shelves and cabinets white which adds more brightness to the room. Materials are divided into different classifications and are catalogued accordingly which made it easier for to find. There is also a kiosk machine to find the materials you need. The spacing between shelves is perfect which gives you enough room and comfortable space to look around. Within the shelves you would see blue sofas where you could sit and can read/study/relax. There are charging stations for your phone, laptops and other electronic devices which for me shows more technological services provided by the library. There are study, observation and viewing rooms on the left side which I haven't tried yet but I could see huge display screens showcasing different movies and documentaries which are very interesting and will surely try next time. On the right side around the area there are study tables facing the window and as you move ahead you would see E-newspaper desks at the end of the shelves.

    At the end of the the zone is where the grandest part of all where I normally stay: the classroom type seating area designed in U-shape presentation theater like hall similar to amphitheater. It has a huge panoramic window at the end which has the most amazing and impeccable view of Sentosa uninterrupted. I could see USS & Shrek's castle from here, the Sentosa Tram, Sentosa Boardwalk and the Sea. This is what makes this library stand out - a very creative and innovative design not found in other libraries. Not only I learned from going here but I also enjoyed and got relaxed with this wonderful view. This area is divided into 2 halls: the left one is bigger which has the best view and in addition it also serves coffee table books and DVDs. The right one near the e-newspaper area is the smaller one but still has the stunning view of Sentosa. I normally go to the left one which has different types of desks and chairs which I really loved as well as their coffee table books. At the bottom part of the halls are Yellow wooden type leaning chairs which perfectly match the amazing view.

    Following the standard library procedures - silence and cleanliness is a must. This is a place to study, learn and relax. Maintain cleanliness and tidiness whenever your using their materials and services. During weekends and peak hours the library might be full so observe proper timing while using the library. They are closed during public holidays and during this pandemic, QR Code is a must for contact tracing and they usually inform designated usage time when entering the library. Finally, I wanted to salute the library staff who are very friendly and helpful, some of which are volunteers who maintain and manage the overall day to day activities & services of the library for smooth and efficient delivery of their materials and services to the public. Most notably the cleanliness and orderliness of the library itself - I could see their staff cleaning the library desk and chairs every so often - I really admire this, truly an impeccable service they provide. In addition, their toilet is also quite huge and very clean. Concluding my Excellent review, if you happen to drop by Vivo do visit the Library@Harbourfront and you will be surprised that it's not just your ordinary library - it is about what learning and relaxing means at the same time. Kudos to you all Library@Harbourfront!!!

    Worth the monorail journey from terminal 3 because this lounge is SO much better. Bigger, cleaner and more modern in appearance than the lounge in terminal 3.

    I visited this place just out of curiosity, and spend no more than 5 minutes inside.They do have some brochures & flyers introducing the area, if you like to have some printed map & brochure handy, but nothing special. The merchandise on display is also not special. I didn't get to speak to the staff, just take some brochure and leave, since I didn't intended to purchase any tour there. The best part maybe the $1 ice potong sold in front of the center.

    It’s a fairly small lounge so if capacity hits (say) 40 people, you might find yourself unable to get a seat. I would recommend having a look first to see if there is a space for you & your companion.

    If you unfortunately find yourselves on the bar stools, the issue would be the power points which are near the ground. This means you must have a long enough cable for you to charge your phone/iPad/laptop. Otherwise you’ll need to place these on the floor (awkward!) to charge.

    As for the food, it was alright. I saw they had vegetarian options which looked good (but didn’t try it). Not enough desserts & ice cream.

    The staff were VERY nice though. Two thumbs up on that front.

    Overall, I cannot say that it was worth the money but it was a break from the bustle of Changi.

    Qantas Business Lounge Singapore, the lounge is quite large and spacious, with comfortable seating areas around the lounge. The variety of food on offer was generous in the buffet section as was the food cooked to order. The bar and cocktails made to order I nice touch. However the most disappointing part for me was the lack of options for sparkling drinkers. No champagne on offer rather a sparkling Australian wine. Every other lounge we have been in for business class travel has offered a champagne choice. This omission has taken away the highend feel that other lounges have. Disappointed in this omission.

    Seminars and exhibitions are the best platform to update one's knowledge on the latest development in a particular field. Today, I had the opportunity to attend the Singapore Police WorkPlan Seminar and Exhibition 2023 at the Singapore EXPO and updated my knowledge on the latest trend in policing and crime control.

    The spacious exhibition hall showcased the latest technological enhancement that SPF has embraced and embarked to prepare herself to meet the future challenges in policing. The new `Ang Chia' Tactical Vehicle is more nimble and is equipped with sirens, blinkers and strobe light to enhance its presence. The Next-Generation Fast Response Car is equipped with in-house video recording system, Automated Number Plate recognition system and the Integrated Vehicular Dashboard to improve officers' operational effectiveness and safety. Drones were also deployed in search, enforcement operations, crowd management and aerial patrols. Robots would be deployed for future community engagement and attend to general queries from public. Game machines would appear in events for anti-scam education through games. Intelligent driving circuits will eventually replace the work of driving testers in practical driving tests.

    SPF is always forward looking and future ready. However, technology enhancement must always be complemented by public trust which is the core pillar in successful policing as reiterated by Minister for Home Affairs in his speech. Without public trust and confidence, policing would be like fishes struggling to survive without the ocean of water that sustained them.

    The brunch is sumptuous and the venue was ideal for interaction with other officers from other units. This is the right place for SPF to hold such a private event and had the space to display all the tactical vehicles, equipment and gadgets. It is also within walking distance from the EXPO mrt station and the car parks are directly in front of the seminar hall.

    Ayana Rocks in Bali is fantastic to watch the sunset followed by dinner next to the beach. The scenery is spell-binding and memorable.

    Great choice, extraordinary quality, perfect cleanliness plus sufficient space for many guests at the „lounge rushhours“. Only 4 stars because of the missing daylight.

    Because the Qantas 1st Class Lounge closed at 11pm, we had to move to Emirates Lounge. Not the same high standard, but still excellent to spend a pleasant hour before the next flight. Comfortable lounge chairs, plenty of charging stations, good choice of drinks and food on buffet.
