Recently, my wife and I celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary. We celebrated the special occasion at the latest darling of the nation, Jewel Changi Airport.
From the outside, Jewel resembles a futuristic enclosed city, shaped like an enormous donut. We had our dinner at Pizza Express. Fortunately, the vegan choices we ordered weren’t as uninspiring as the restaurant’s name. In fact, we really enjoyed them.
After dinner, we decided to take a stroll around the complex. The main attraction of this beautiful mall is the huge waterfall attraction in the middle of the compound. It is called Rain Vortex and it is also the largest indoor waterfall in the world. I must admit that I was blown away by the sheer volume of the water that was being dropped, so intensively from above. It reminded me of the great Madakaripura Waterfall in Indonesia, that I had the opportunity to visit back in 2016.
The day ended with us gazing in awe at the water and light show. While everyone was holding up their phones trying to capture every moment of the amazing spectacle (not judging), I decided to put mine away. And to simply allow myself a moment to be immersed in the beauty of the waterfall, the beauty of the occasion, and the beauty of my unsuspecting wife.
