Henderson Waves | Singapore Changi Airport | Kampong Glam

Always blogging, even busily watching the exciting Beijing Olympic Games! Well well, the photo below was taken from Mount Faber (花柏山). MOUNT Faber? It may sound like a “mountain” but it is just a small hill standing at a height of 105 metres. The highest hill in Singapore is Bukit Timah Hill with a height of 164 metres only.

At Mount Faber, which is part of the 9-km long Southern Ridges, you will enjoy the panoramic views of the central business district area, cable cars that connect to the touristy Sentosa island and other areas in the South. The photo below depicts the typical skyline of Singapore, with tall commercial buildings located in the business district area that loom over the colourful residential buildings.

Do you still remember my “Bridge Jump” pic taken from the Henderson Waves on my first post about Singapore? Here is the continuation of that post now. At a height of 36 metres, Henderson Waves bridge is the tallest pedestrian bridge in Singapore that stretches 300 metres across a chain of greenery.

This undulated bridge has a unique design with wave-like structures that also provide shelters to […]

Singapore Attraction: Little India

I was in India on a Friday night, oh yeah, missed out a word “Little”.

Little India is Singapore’s Indian heartland, yet another cultural heritage site in Singapore. It used to be a division where Indian immigrants would reside in olden days, but under Singapore government’s policy for racial harmony, the immigrant population (just like Chinese and other immigrants) was spatially segregated into different parts of the islands.

This is Veeramakaliamman Temple, one of the oldest temples in Singapore built by Indian pioneers who came to work and live in this island.

Singapore Food & Shopping Paradise

Singapore is definitely a shopping paradise; you can find cheap and good items all over the city. Though there are mid-year sales and final-year sales going on every year, I would say that sales are literally going on all year round. Shop till you drop!

And did I mention Singapore is a food paradise too? You name it, we have it. Food centres are everywhere to make sure that you never miss your meals! Apart from Chinese, Malay and Indian food, this cosmopolitan country has a wide variety of food that includes Korean, Japanese, Thai, Indonesian, American, French, Vietnamese, Mexican, Italian, Swiss, German and a long list to go…

A food festival held in Bugis Junction, a shopping mall with restored shophouses. […]

Uniquely Singapore!

I have been going around Singapore(新加坡) these few days, trying to explore every nook and canny of my homeland. Did I say explore? Yes! You must be wondering why I didn’t blog about my own country, despite that I have published 160 over posts since April ’08 in this travel photo blog, yet all are not related to Singapore! I admit that I took for granted everything I had back home. But now, I can tell you that Singapore is definitely MORE BEAUTIFUL than ever!

Living in a cultural melting pot with a mix of Chinese, Malay, Indian and Eurasian communities, there is so much to blog about Singapore! In this series, let me show you around Chinatown, a place where I used to stay until I was two years old.

The Chinatown in Singapore is known as “牛车水”, literally means “ox-cart water”, which is an echo of its Malay name “Kreta Ayer” meaning “cart” and “water”. The name comes from ox-drawn carts that were used to transport water to the area in the past.

This area in Chinatown is a national heritage site designated for conservation. The shophouses combine different elements of Baroque and Victorian architectures. Mind you, the distinctive red rooftops of these heritage shophouses remind me of Prague!!

Singapore population is around 4.6 million, with Chinese as the largest ethnic group composing […]
