Singapore- a brief visit

So nice to be in Singapore for pleasure rather than business for a change. I had the opportunity to work here for two months about 5 years ago and always love to visit as it is such an easy place to get around and it was fun to enjoy nightly fireworks for Chinese New Year – year of the Piggy 🐷

This time I stayed at the JW Marriott, South Beach which was nothing like a typical Marriott but a much more funky and psychedelic place than I’m used to but which I really liked – see below. Also a great gin bar, great views and fab swimming pools. Will stay again

I spent time walking around Kampung Glam and Arab Street

And hanging around looking at the modern architecture

even my bank has great local contemporary art

And visited the National Museum of Singapore – quite interesting and lovely building

Best of all I got to catch up with old friends – Mel, Anouk, and Danny, Chandrani and Vishal, Rona and John, Pippa, Sreeram and June.
