green Singapore

Scenes From Singapore (Part 1)

On our way to Norway we stopped in Singapore. I hadn't visited since 2001 when I spent a summer with my father when he was working there. It had changed and grown quite a bit since then but in most ways was still just the same.

Green. Such manicured foliage and not a speck of trash on the ground.

Tall. Standing in the CBD gives a big-city feel.

The fast, efficient SMRT train network.

singapore food

Food. Everywhere.

Hectic. Singapore is densely populated with over five million people in just over 700 sq kms of space.

These pics made me a bit nostalgic for Singapore. Then I remembered how damn hot the place is. I used to have sweat dripping off the end of my nose standing still at the bus stop at 7am. We won’t live there again, but we will visit!

It’s so true – you don’t really feel the heat there except for how much you sweat – I can’t stand it – even my face was sweating walking around there. So much humidity!

Nice photos! Singapore is so colorful!

Thanks, Laura and Claire! It definitely is =)

Your pictures tell such a great story! I can’t wait to visit one day.

I love the picture of the train network! Maybe because the city I was living in right now for business lacks of an efficient public transport!
