On his blog and in the interview below, Jason Mraz says some very, very nice words about our environmental operations at Marina Bay Sands, and he also gives an interesting description of his creative process for any of you artists out there. Watching this, you quickly see he’s not only something of the Bob Dylan of our time, he’s also just a thoughtful, decent guy (and a fellow vegan, I’m happy to learn).

Marina Bay Sands made it onto Yahoo’s list of 10 Spectacular New Hotel Pools: “The outdoor infinity swimming pool at this mega resort (which opened in 2010) is considered the world’s largest. Located a staggering 656 feet above Singapore and 492 feet long (roughly three times Olympic-pool length), it’s a thrill-seeker’s delight. The pool not only spans three of the hotel’s 55-story towers, but the Plexiglass sides give the stomach-churning illusion of no end point in sight. In addition to the adrenaline rush, the pool’s location is visual mayhem, with awesome views of the city skyline.” Hat tip: Sandra
