IMG_6090Singapore was awesome!

I love this picture of the Chinese Thian Hock Keng Temple. The picture shows both old and new elements.

Calm, quiet and people-less, this temple was a very interesting place to visit.

There are two deities in this temple, whom I refer to as, the Cigarette Gods. For reasons I do not know, people put out cigarettes as offerings to them. Anyone willing to shed some light over this?

Walking down the street, I found this man, peacefully waiting for a parked car, obstructing his view, to move, so that he could resume painting.

Colorful painted shutters cheered up the street, even on a grey overcast day.

These guys clomped all around the town, to welcome the Chinese New Year- the year of the horse.

From Chinatown, to Arab street, it felt like I had flown away to a different country.

Found a Mediterranean cafe. It served only vegetarian food. It did not serve alcohol. Life was good.

On our way back, we were lost for a little while and when we were found, we were met with this view.

I hopped on the HiPPO and explored the city.

Armed with my camera backpack, a small sling bag, water bottles and multiple maps and guide pamphlets, I was the image of a clichΓ©d tourist! And boy was I loving it!

Maybe you can touch a cloud from the top of the Singapore flyer…

Orchid Gardens turned out to be a wonderful escape from the tall skylines.

Take some time & smell the flowers.

A visit to the Jurong Bird Park and the night was an adventure.

Met dear ‘ol Hedwig, bleary eyed and magnificent as ever.

The (disputable) southernmost point of continental Asia.

Walking on Siloso beach…

The butterfly park, was, some kind of a magical land to be at.

A little street shopping therapy at Bugis Street. πŸ™‚

Strange food things..
