With no skyscrapers and buildings in the way, the sun’s rays appeared to reflect against the sea before the glowing orb disappeared into the horizon.

As he journeyed East, the skies became cloudier but looked no less spectacular as some towering cranes came into view.

Scene reminds netizens of The Lion King

On Thursday (24 Jun), Mr Abdul Rahim’s friend shared one of the pictures on the Singapore Subreddit which has since gone viral with over 2,300 upvotes.

A number of netizens pointed out that the picture reminded them of The Lion King movie.


One Redditor seemed to know why that was the case, as he highlighted the large tree in the picture.


If you’re wondering why we don’t get to see such sunsets more often, this netizen offered a sad but relatable answer.
