Nice p.o.v. Ayush.

Jolie vue avec cette passerelle.

a lovely place to spend the day!

What a wonderful angle!

Very nice too Ayush
Ayush Basu: It is a nice place but I do not visit it that often, Chris.
I would not have realised this was Singapore Ayush
Ayush Basu: I have not often shared other aspects of Singapore on SC, Bill.

It seems well organised (sorry the pun) and looks to have no shortage of water Ayush.
Ayush Basu: A good one, Chad.
Looks so peaceful, Ayush. Good to know that Singapore is looking after its water supply.
Ayush Basu: They have that vision into the future, Beverly.

your low angle makes for a superb result
Ayush Basu: I am pleased with your remark, Sherri.
Swimming allowed?
Ayush Basu: Erm, I cannot recall having signs allowing or prohibiting, Tom. But there are stingrays in these waters that could make it a painful experience.
I never would have guessed this was in Singapore either, Ayush!
Ayush Basu: I imagine I have not presented a diverse side of Singapore on SC, Ginnie.

This is indeed a different side of Singapore, Ray. I love it that they think ahead. I like your picture, wonderful point of view.
Ayush Basu: Thank you for your remark, Astrid. They do have vision. And that makes me think of the Delta Works project too.

Heh, difference of terms. This we will refer to as a dam (facility with a dam wall on one side) to catch and hold rain water. Normally built in a river system. A reservoir is a closed holding tank (a huge concrete or steel unit) that holds the treated and clean water for an area on a hill or raised platform - to create gravity pressure for the area that is served. It is these little differences in word usage, that can make big misunderstandings. Meantime, no one is wrong with the use of their vocabulary.

Is there any recreational use of this reservoir?
Ayush Basu: What you say is all correct, Louis. I think it is not a true dam though, in the sense that it was not a low lying area that was submerged with the coming of a dam. The water was always here except that now it is actively managed by the authorities to ensure there are no inefficiencies or wastage. People are allowed to visit and fish here, but not something as large scale as power boats, wake-boarding and so on.
