I feel that I haven’t explored enough of Singapore especially it’s nature reserves. I’ve never been to Labrador Park and dropped by to explore, but B decided we’d come another day as it was drizzling. So these are the photos … Continue reading
Love this new green space we discovered. The old white colonial buildings which are now art galleries are beautiful in this setting.
The walk to Sembawang MRT can be pleasant just after the rain. There is a stretch of road that reminds me of our Botanic Gardens. And this is the part of the red line that is above ground. No air-conditioning … Continue reading
We like coming to Lower Pierce. It’s nice and peaceful. B was laughing at me because I was scared of the monkeys. He’s more of an animal person than I am and he is quite fond of them. I find … Continue reading
We are still awaiting for the renovations at the East Coast Beach to be complete. Used to hang out at the Macs there but it’s since moved further down to where all the seafood restaurants are.
The colours of these halloween buckets were popping. Saw them at the Rochester Market where there was a huge range of organic stuff on sale. Love this mall with all it’s green. It’s just across from the new Star Vista. … Continue reading
Thought the blog needed a bit more green and perhaps a little break from the all food posts. This is another long overdue post – a trip with D to Botanic Gardens. We did make a food stop at the … Continue reading
I may complain that Singapore lacks nature and is just too urban, but sometimes I feel that the roads themselves can be a green oasis. You just need to find the scenic route. But when all that fails there’s always … Continue reading
As I get closer to 100 on my happiness list, I feel that I can go beyond that number and I never thought I would even come close. It’s quite a lovely feeling. And even though we now have Gardens … Continue reading
Feeling a whole lot better today. Hope you’ll read my post about Samy’s Curry at Dempsey. I also talk about food quirks like food touching. On National Day I must say food is the closest thing to my heart about … Continue reading
Love how the red roofs of these old barracks stand out against the blue sky and lushness of the tropical green. I’ve probably already mentioned this a million times and am in danger of sounding repetitive. But seriously it’s a … Continue reading
I was impressed by the cosy design of malls like My Village and Rochester Mall, but now I am majorly impressed by Greenich V which is located within the Seletar Hills residential estate. It’s so charming and dare I say … Continue reading
One of the prettiest trees in Singapore is the one with dark branches and yellowish green leaves. I still don’t know what these trees are called, but they don’t seem tropical to me. I have nothing against tropical, but we … Continue reading
This times we parked at the side nearer the main entrance. It was a pity that there was construction and cleaning going on when we were there and a lot of the path was blocked. We then made a promise … Continue reading
We were heading towards the Halia Cafe and noticed that this was where the entrance to the National Orchid Garden was located. I was absolutely fascinated by this female tourist who was wearing ‘Sex and the City’ heels. I marveled … Continue reading
I have a poor sense of direction, so the clearly marked signs were comforting. In green too, blending nicely into the natural surroundings. What was new and cool, was that the MRT station has been included. Even though it was … Continue reading
After a disappointing meal at Muthu’s at Race Course Road, we took another trip to Demsey, for much more fulfilling non-vegetarian banana leaf meal. Muthu’s was $40 compared to the $27 we spent at Dempsey. Samy’s Curry blew the competition … Continue reading
I have a confession to make. I have never had a proper picnic (meal outdoors in a picnic basket and fully clothed) in Singapore. As a child I’ve had snacks in my swimsuit on a mat by the shore, mostly … Continue reading
Been here countless number of times, enticed by the very tasty South Indian curries and the laid back green backdrop. I’d rather have curry in these open surroundings than in an air-conditioned cafe. I always think, if Singapore’s temperature fell … Continue reading
The area around Orchard Road true to it’s name is quite an orchard. I would love to see town (our term since teenhood, for the shopping district) become more of a green oasis just like New York’s Central Park. I … Continue reading
It’s nice to take an evening stroll, soaking in the ambience of Joo Chiat, as dusk approaches. Loads of old world charm to be experienced, amidst the more controversial prostitution going on around the bar areas. Definitely not a boring … Continue reading
It was a total surprise to see art among the lushness. You see I haven’t been here for perhaps more than a year. It could be longer. The killer humidity is the only thing that keeps us away.
