Orchids from Tim
Who needs the National Orchid Garden when your boyfriend sends you these for your birthday! Thanks Tim!
In the 1960's Singapore decided it needed a symbol...so they made up the Merlion...half lion/half mermaid creature. It is now one of the most recognized symbols of Singapore.
Walking to the Merlion
Lisa, me and Jeremy from France
Lisa and Will and their matching cameras...how cute!
Asian "Ice Cream"
Mine was basically chocolate flavored shaved ice with coco cereal and hot fudge on it...delicious seriously.
Monkeys...and not the zoo kind
Real wild monkeys in the middle of the road in Sentosa...they were camera shy and wouldn't look at me though.
