Singapore

Lonely Planet describes Singapore as the following:
"A fine cocktail of Western predictability and Asian enthusiasm." Ultra modern, immaculately organised, and a little snobbery thrown in, it's certainly the cleanest place you'll find in Asia. But whatever the case: if you like to shop, and you like to eat, Singapore is the place to be. There's quite a few parks and nature reserves to satisfy the outdoorsy type, NOTE: it definitely lacks in the beach department. Go to Thailand or Borneo.
If there is such a thing as a national obsession, Singapore's would be food.


My favorite fish was shredded chicken porridge. You have to taste it to believe it. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.

Although Singapore is known more for creating the artificial, they also create 'natural' pretty well. Unfortunately for me, all I brought were two flimsy pairs of flip flops. Not particularly great for hiking, but I managed the best I could. Six hour hikes in flip flops is fun!



They even manage to maintain a "lifeless earth"!

Lots of monkeys to be found!!


This is the proboscis monkey, only found in Borneo. The Singapore zoo is the only place in the world that these guys can be found outside of Borneo.



Crazy Singapore:

Crazy Trees

Crazy Christmas

Crazy street lines
