That is Marina Mandarin!  A hotel building with an exterior resembles an elephant with two flapping ears, a lowered trunk and a wide face.  In “Feng Shui” philosophy, elephant signify peace, steadiness and good fortune.  By placing this architectural edifice just a distant from Marina Bay, and having the best view of the waters, it is by nature a good “Feng Shui”?  Stay tune for the next building!
