As a child I didn’t have truly good memories of the beaches in Singapore. My sister and I often developed huge painful welts on our upper arms and always thought it was because we were allergic to sea water. We … Continue reading
It was about a 10 minute walk from our beautiful hotel chalet to the beach. I’m so glad we didn’t miss this as I found it so utterly refreshing. The feel of the soft sand and the reviving sounds of … Continue reading
We just needed a day to gaze at the sea.
What I love about Singapore is that when they do something well, they really do it well. I just adore Parkland Green. Such a nice place to relax and I can’t wait for the East Coast Park renovation to the … Continue reading
I had no idea that Parkland Green existed till B suggested we go there. Parts of it hardly looked like Singapore. I loved the section of trees that in a distance made me feel like I was transported to a … Continue reading
It’s been hard getting back into the swing of things but I figure short and sweet posts are better than radio silence. My life has been blessed though with angelic nieces who bring more joy than I could imagine. I … Continue reading
Back to Changi beach and before that a relaxing brunch at Jacob’s Cafe. If it wasn’t so blazing hot I wouldn’t mind swimming here. Wish most days could be cool and drizzly, although I know not many people share this … Continue reading
Had satay at East Coast Lagoon Beach and then walked to this area where we watched people on water skis at the artificial lake. The ships at sea are always a captivating sight and in that way our Singapore beaches … Continue reading
A stormy day at East Coast Beach. The sky threatened, but we did not let it keep us away till fat droplets hit our faces. Warm rain is not strange to us here. And somehow. If you didn’t tell me … Continue reading
Took a trip down memory lane instead. I’m old enough to not be embarrassed to say I hate roughing it out. Done it before in my early twenties. Happily even. On spartan bunk beds. My good friend E will remember. … Continue reading
Only Suri Cruise can skip in the sand in heels. Even if you asked me now, I couldn’t do it. I worry about her ankles, but I must admit that I am mesmerized by this celebrity tot. Loving that pink … Continue reading
I think this is the few places on earth where you can spot huge ships and tankers at the beach. Not so good for swimming, but it’s quite a glorious sight from a distance. All those coconut trees at East … Continue reading
I have countless photos of trees. Love em. One of our many ‘do not’ signs. I can’t ride a bike, so this looks like a good way to travel to me. Like the shade factor too. Love the yellow of … Continue reading
Decided to dig up some old photos from last year of Changi Beach which is definitely my favourite beach in Singapore. The best time to go to the beach is as early as possible in the morning, before it gets … Continue reading
Some green to soothe tired eyes. That’s Malaysia across the water! An old man was throwing bread to the birds and they were very satisfied.
Macro shot of pretty weeds. This is as close as we will get to Autumn leaves. Powdery sand. It’s hard to believe there are hundreds of people on that contraption in the sky or that I sat in one a … Continue reading
Children don’t need a lot to have fun. They see the magic in the tiniest little things, and my main purpose of blogging is to rediscover that sense of wonder.
Sometimes you just don’t feel like taking another flight, but you really need a short break to invigorate your soul. That’s when we decided to go to Bintan, a beautiful Indonesian Island, which is just a 45 minute ferry ride … Continue reading
Walls ice-cream recently conducted a survey of 200 people in the their 20s and 30s who rated East Coast Park their happiest spot followed by Sentosa and then their own homes came in third. I couldn’t help thinking, what about … Continue reading
It may be a man made beach with imported sand, but I’ll take it. Give me a clean beach any day. I had a glorious time staying at the Shangri-la hotel in Sentosa. A great happy staycation with the family. … Continue reading
