I always welcome cooler weather. I am afraid of lightning though. Lightning hits very low and frequently in our thunderstorms, but this was just a light rain in comparison like what you would experience in a temperate country, but wetter … Continue reading
Rain is most welcome. Been the hottest March. 34 degrees at Noon. Actually rain in my book is always welcome.
It’s been an emotionally draining week. I have been more touched than I ever thought I would be. Even now after the national week of mourning is over, you somehow don’t feel the same. I have a greater sense of … Continue reading
Very simple and tasteful decorations outside Chijmes. Snapped a quick shot as we were driving by on a drizzly afternoon.
The area in front of Central looks so different when it rains. The river got so muddy but our thunderstorms always calm me.
It seems quite coincidental that it’s been raining so much this Chinese New Year and it also happens to be the year of the water snake.
Sometimes the sky in Singapore can look really interesting when you can see that it’s raining a distance away but in the foreground it’s still scorching.
It’s been an unusual October with days of scorching sun. Feels like your skin could peel right off. So glad it’s pouring down right now. What relief.
It just rained and rained all night and I can finally see blue skies again. Missed you, blue skies. Missed you, sweet scented air I can breathe. Well I don’t know about sweet scented yet, but we’ll get there as … Continue reading
It was a mighty hot 36 degrees celcius today which converts to 97 degrees Farenheit (may not sound too bad, but imagine muggy humidity of around 78%). But there is an upside. Later in the day I looked up and … Continue reading
Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands: Where you can take a sampan ride and experience gushing water inside a mall
Don’t think I’ll ever ride the sampan. Just seems to contrived and unreal, when I could take a nice bumboat ride out to one of the little islands from Changi instead. But I think kids would enjoy this and I’d … Continue reading
Unbelievable! This is one of my favourite malls too. There has been heavy rain before, but this mall has never flooded. Pretty shocking footage where it looks like it’s raining inside the mall. [youtube]nBk_zXvVuXo[/youtube] [youtube]QqDEyQdytmc[/youtube] I know it’s been raining … Continue reading
The rain came down, hard. After the rain. More of the rain. I get grouchy when my shoes get soaked in huge unavoidable puddles. I don’t mind the rest of me getting wet. And I do like the cooling down … Continue reading
I don’t have a fear of heights, but the escalator ride (goes up 3 levels at least) and the ship design at Stadium MRT (circle line or yellow line as I like to call it) is both impressive and vertigo … Continue reading
Sometimes when I am at home and the rain is coming down heavy outside and you see multiple flashes of lightning seemingly entering through the window, my neurotic self wonders if you could be struck my lightning while indoors. Well … Continue reading
Again, because I took so many photos I need to spilt this post into 4 parts. Part 1 will cover how to get to the Skypark, Part 2 the amazing views of Singapore from the top, Part 3 will cover … Continue reading
This is the only mall with an actual view of Sentosa, the cable cars, ships and the water and that’s what makes it so great.
I would still say this is the best time to visit Singapore. It’s the coolest and the weather is at least bearable with our levels of humidity. February and March always seem the most unbearable to me. Scorching heat I … Continue reading
So that’s what’s been hitting us lately – the Sumatra Squall. I’m not complaining as the air feels so much fresher, but I do hope there are no more dangerous falling tree incidents. I also noticed the not so common long … Continue reading
This is what Autumn looks like in Singapore. Yup, we don’t really have any seasons. Another super hot day and a few hours later, down came the rain. Visibility was very poor, even with the windshield wiper swishing the water … Continue reading
