Singapore – Friends and Flowers

Back to Singapore again after the end of our cruise – I know it quite well but always great to see new things and catch up with friends as well.

We visited the Botanical Gardens and I think I was last there in the 80s. It’s so wonderful – an oasis in the centre of a busy city. We spent three hours there wandering from one end to the other. And it’s free with only a small payment to visit the orchid garden.

More stunning orchids

Even the leaves are beautiful here

Singapore reinvents itself every year -I never get bored of the skyline and like finding new spots for taking photos.

More enjoyment of plants and flowers at the Gardens by the Bay – never get bored of these – although we couldn’t do the skywalk due to maintenance which was a shame. Next time.

And always good to catch up with friends like Tareq and June – and to watch Chris getting her daily sugar rush after a massive Sunday brunch.

Little India, friends and another lunar new year rat!

Happy Lunar New Year of the Rat!
