Singapore with friends

The Singapore is a city of around six and a half million people on a small island where any building built before 1995 is considered old. It's hot, humid, clean and crime free.

In the last 24 hours, we've seen extraordinary modern architecture  ...





... plate glass and reflections everywhere you look ...


... a wonderful garden - The Gardens by the Bay ...



... and a little girl dressed for Halloween ...


It's extraordinary, vibrant and very, very modern.

    3. Thanks Connie for the link. I've found her! Sadly, though, we're going no further north than Christchurch or I'd have tried to look her up.

    1. It is extraordinarily modern with enormous numbers of amazing modern buildings built in the last 20 years Fortunately, the government has realised just in time the value of the old and the buildings dating from the late 19 and early 20th centuries are now preserved.
