    Setting aside the Rain Vortex, for me, the Jewel is one if not the most beautiful shopping mall that I have ever seen. Must-visit. And it officially opens to all today, 17 April. Can't wait to watch Endgame at the Shaw Cinema there.

    To the curious, Jewel is accessible as a public area. No need to fly nor pass thru immigration just to pay a visit.

    Thanks will try to visit it today and check if it's worth the hype. Good thing it's quite near my workplace at Changi Business Park.

    Be wary of the maddening crowd now that the floodgates have opened. During the preview, I didn't even consider dining there just yet. The lines were incredibly long. Even Potato Corner had a long line too.

    And a tip for those who choose to reach the Jewel sans the long walk: if taking the MRT, go to T2/T3 and take the SkyTrain to T1. Head down to the basement and the main entrance should give you a good, welcoming glimpse of the waterfalls.

    For those who love the bulaklak and thing like that, there's the new Floral Fantasy @ Bayfront Plaza, the latest addition to the Gardens by the Bay complex, which also opened doors last Sunday.

    ^some hotels provide a free phone for guests... I suggest you call the hotel to confirm... (you might not need to pay for a local number) :)

    Mm..during my last visit, the hotel cellphone that was provided was hardly useable. You need to punch a bunch of numbers then the phone number. Hard to get through. Useless.

    Local simcard for zero hassle.
