Snapshots from Singapore

I visited Mitch in Singapore again this weekend. We explored some new neighborhoods and went to one of the many Singapore International Film Festival films. Many of the photos I’ve chosen to include here are indicative of my favorite thing about Singapore – there are gardens everywhere. It’s really spectacular. Enjoy!

It's not the best picture, but I was standing on one rooftop garden looking down onto another rooftop garden, which is pretty cool. Also check out the Christmas tree below!

The next set of photos are all from the rooftop garden on which I was standing when I took the previous photo. There were fish in the pools of water, which made me wonder who feeds them.

These are from the same rooftop and are probably my favorite part of the whole thing. They are walls. Made of plants.

Of course, it’s not all rooftop gardens . . .

If you’ve ever looked at a map of Singapore, you’d’ve noticed water. Everywhere. Yet another reason I love this city.

I also really enjoy contrasts. For example, there are red-brick streets . . . and ultra-modern coffee bars . . . The New Black is a really interesting concept. You can read about it here.

Another lovely weekend in the books!
