Singapore Flyer....or....

I took this pic when i visited Singapore recently,i was standing at the Merlion Park while taking this pic.i don't exactly know where it located...
Using my Nikon compact camera,i only manage to get this pic.
The Singapore Flyer is a giant observation wheel in Singapore. Reaching 42 stories high, it comprises a 150-metre (in diameter) high wheel built over a three-story terminal building, giving it a total height of 165 metres. This will exceed The Star of Nanchang (currently the tallest) by 5 metres and the London Eye (currently the largest) by 30 metres. It will feature 28 air-conditioned capsules capable of holding 28 passengers each. A complete rotation of the wheel will take an estimated 30 minutes. As at 2 October 2007, the last capsule of the Singapore Flyer had been installed.
Located on the southeast tip of the Marina Centre reclaimed land, it is expected to offer excellent views of the city centre and beyond to about 45 kilometres, including the Indonesian islands of Batam and Bintan, as well as Johor, Malaysia.
