    • I hadn’t expected much of Singapore, it was our city of entry into Malaysia. It was way more interesting and there was a lot going on – we actually went back early at the end of our trip in order to spend some more time there.

    • There is so much going on in Singapore – the ‘Durian’ had a lot of events, some of them free. And the ‘Boat’ on top of the hotel was actually a swimming pool – next time we’ll go up there – imagine the view!

  1. Great photographs! Really creative compositions- Especially the pic of Esplanade.
    Hope you enjoyed your time in SG!
    I wish you had been able to enjoy sunset along the skyline instead of gloomy weather. Marina Bay Sands (the ship building) literally glows orange and golden during sunset- quite in contrast to the ‘ominous blue skyscrapers’!
    😃

    • According to our taxi driver the monsoon season was running late that year – when we came back in late November after 5 weeks in Malaysia and it was pouring – a sunset would have been nice but then it may have been way too hot for us wimpy Canadians!
