PUTERI HARBOUR MARINA … 13-17TH MAY 2009

*** Please `double-click’ on image to enlarge!

P5182082

* IN THE MOST MODERN/AFFLUENT AREA OF SINGAPORE/MALAYSIA ... WE STILL SEE THE `OLD WORLD' *

P5142045

* AMY FROM `SV SEAFIRES GEM' ENJOYING THE DRAGONS OF THE EVENING! *

P5142056

* SANDY OF `SV CATCH'US', LOOKING A BIT PENSIVE (PROBABLY HUNGRY) PUTERI HARBOUR GALA DINNER WITH TOO LITTLE FOOD FOR THE MOB! *

This marina is unique in as much as the designer has thought `outside the square’ and anchored the floating pontoons without the need for huge, large diameter steel upright pylons. They have somehow anchored the pontoons underwater, to mooring blocks(?) Giving the marina a very tidy look … unlike any other I have seen!

P5172072

* A VERY TIDY MARINA ... FIRST I'VE SEEN WHERE THEY HAVE DONE WITHOUT UGLY PILONS! *

The Marina is very isolated … almost too far from Johor Bahru to be able to call a taxi. Staff service is excellent, however, and there are two runs each day by a mini-bus to local shopping centers.

* FUTURE PLANS FOR THIS AREA ARE VERY AMBITIOUS! I'D LIKE TO COME BACK IN 20 YEARS TO SEE HOW IT ALL WENT? *

You is able to take a taxi from there to the city at a reasonable price. To get back again though … you must float-a-loan.

ooOoo

* AMANDA (SV BLUE MOON OF AUS) HAVING FUN WITH DRAGONS! *
