Keppel Shipyard 3

But more on the background again. In 1913, the King’s Dock was opened here, which then became the second largest dock in the world. The Queen’s Dock followed in 1956. The then government observed that the ship repair industry was generating significant employment as well as income. The Port of Singapore Authority PSA was formed in 1963, which took over ship repair activities at the Keppel Harbour. With its 1996 move to Tuas, the freed up real estate became prime land that was redeveloped as a mixture of luxury waterfront residential community, swanky office blocks and a marina wth a clubhouse. A 250m long stay cable connect the Keppel Island to the mainland.

A fine marina now Ayush, with the wonky buildings as a backdrop.
Ayush Basu: A far cry from what it once was, Chad.

This is a wealthy place Ayush
Ayush Basu: Oh yes, Chris. I have no clue how much even the smallest of those yachts could cost.
there's the boats!! such a pretty sight, even tho i'm not a fan of boats lol
Ayush Basu: I get sea sick if I am in them, but I do not mind shooting them when I am on dry land, Elaine grin
There's an awful lot of chnage gone on here over the years it seems.
Ayush Basu: A far cry from all the heavy engineering going on here , just a few decades ago, Brian.
What a place, we recently visited San Diego and its very similar.
Ayush Basu: At the moment, it is all very glitzy and sterile here, Frank.

The way you have pictured it, emphasises the up-marketness of the area. (heh, created a new word)
Ayush Basu: If there is not already such a word, it should, Louis. I imagine maintaining those yachts, even the small ones, costs quite a few dollars and cents.
