Beach Station at Sentosa


Sentosa, a small island to the south of Singapore, has changed a lot since I first set foot there in the 70s. I remember back then that the only way we could get to Sentosa was either by cable car or catching a ferry, at the new extinct Jardine Steps at the World Trade Centre (yes, Singapore did in fact have a building called the World Trade Centre but it has now been changed to Harbourfront). Other things that have changed are the way in which people can get to Sentosa now. You can drive across a causeway to it or take a monorail train from Vivo City to get there. I did exactly that when I went to Sentosa recently and I happened to snap this picture of the Beach Station, the very last station on the monorail line in Sentosa. Even as I took this picture, I just wished that I could experience Sentosa again for what it was, in its virgin state all those years ago. The beaches were cleaner and the water was clearer. Sentosa has gone all commercial now. It is a sad but then again, that is what life is about…change
