Alright, this is not a water station along a marathon route but guess where this is?

This interesting circle line station at Bras Basah has a glass ceiling covered with a film of water. For a moment, it reminded me of swimming underwater in a swimming pool because of the ripple effect, on some of the wall panels, created by the light traveling through the water medium.

But this is not all. Do you know what? Without going out of the station, one would never know that this water feature is part of the SMU grounds and can be seen by pedestrians and vehicles moving along Bras Basah Road. This cannot be a coincidence since basah means wet in Malay and the road was so-named because this area was where they used to dry wet rice.
