This area is referred to as the Esplanade. Up until I did the research for this post, I incorrectly thought that the building was called "The Esplanade".
I was wrong. It doesn't happen very often, but alas it has happened.
I'm totally kidding, by the way.
Anyway. The building is actually one of two identical buildings in the Esplanade area and is correctly referred to as "Esplanade: Theatres on the Bay".
But I've never heard anyone call them that. That's just too many words.
I always hear "the Esplanade" or the "giant durians" — as in the nasty smelling fruit that my brother made me eat for his birthday.
The buildings look a lot like that fruit that is oh so popular in this part of the world.
I still don't get the appeal.
On a side note, I'd like to express my extreme excitement over the fact that the local grocery store I sometimes go to has stopped carrying durians and thus I no longer wish to rip off my nose when shopping for produce.
One down, 50 more to go.
