Just tell them that you will be working during SO in Singapore.. so no need to go to Spore the following week after SO. At least you can still catch some action.

Scenes of Singapore Civic Centre
To those of you who are coming for the Aviva Open and may not be familiar with some of Singapore's more scenic attractions, I am posting some pictures taken today from my office building, which is overlooking the Singapore River.
In Malay, padang means a big field which you can see here. It is a popular place for sports and recreation and in fact is anchored at both ends by the Singapore Cricket Club (formerly a social club patronized by the British) and the Singapore Recreation Club (popular with our Eurasian community).
On the left side is the impressive Supreme Court (with a green dome) and City Hall buildings and on the right surrounding the Singapore River and Marina Bay are Fullerton Hotel, located in between the Cavanagh Bridge (front) and Anderson Bridge (back) and the Durian, Esplanade - Theatres on the Bay.
A new addition, The Singapore Flyer (The big white wheel at the extreme top right) is still under construction.
On the foreground is our Asian Civilisation Museum just facing the Singapore River. In the background are the hotels and Suntec City, with Pan Pacific Hotel (where the badminton players are housed) just behind the Esplanade. The very tall circular building on the left is the Swissotel-The Stamford.

The Floating Platform and the Singapore Flyer
You can see them on the extreme top right in the last two pics.
They are located around the Marina Bay which will be developed soon with the Integrated Resort (incorporating the Casino) and the new Financial Hub.
The colourful floating platform with the seating gallery (25,000) facing it is presently constructed specially for our National Day Parade on August 9. We used to have our ND celebrations at our National Stadium in Kallang, but it will be a novelty to have the parade on water for the first time as the Stadium will be demolished to make way for our Sports Hub.
The venue for the Aviva Open at the Singapore Indoor Stadium (which can accommodate at least 10,000 people) is also in Kallang, not far away from Pan Pacific Hotel where the players (and Ants & Terry) will be put up.
The Singapore Flyer is our version of the London Eye and should come onstream next year. It will be another new experience for both locals and visitors.

Parliament House, Elgin Bridge, Boat Quay, The Central
Next to the Asian Civilisation Museum in the foreground fronting the River, is our new Parliament House. The semi-circular shaped bridge that separates Boat Quay and Clarke Quay (new entertainment centre that includes The Ministry of Sound and the now defunct Crazy Horse). is the Elgin Bridge.
The space-ship-like building is our new Supreme Court and it faces the street (North Bridge Rd) where the famous computer and accessories Funan Centre is located. The tall bluish building just after Elgin Bridge is the High Street Centre The tall white building opposite is the Riverwalk Plaza.
The Central which is a shopping and office complex has now sprung up at Clarke Quay and you can see the giant cranes behind it. In the left foreground is the famous Boat Quay for alfresco dinning.
Should be an interesting district for visitors.

But the Singapore Flyer is a big one and I understand that the carriages are very big also. You can have a small party in it.
