Singapore's Orchard {feeling like a tourist}

When we say Orchard we think of vineyard and all the plant nurseries right? But not in Singapore! It means shopping and everything that goes with it.  Don't get me wrong, I did not go on a shopping spree.  I had it last weekend and so my budget is a little bit tight right now.

Anyways, since I'm still in bum mode,  I went with my Leica to Orchard yesterday. There was a job offer but I did not take - feelers much, eh ?  Well, I had to walk and back the Orchard road and I discovered this Peranakan place which looked quaint and maybe a hotspot for taking some booze.  I was on a cam journey and not on booze escapade so there, no drinks for me.  I'm gonna post my photo and the rest of them here :)

And last weekend, I went to a friends house and I ate a lot of noodles :))

Singapore, the Garden City {feeling like a tourist}

This is the third time I am doing what tourists do.  Yup, Singapore is also known as the "Garden City".  In fact, all streets here in Singapore are side-walked with trees.  The better place to explore Singapore for nature trip is the Botanic Gardens.  One can either start at Botanic Garden mrt stations in the yellow line (train/metro) and find your way to the Orchard, which was what I just did.  I took a lot of pictures and they came out nicer than I thought.  As a reminder, one should bring with them some insect repellant as I had some one or two insect bites :D

Here are some of the pictures I took with my Leica, and please feel free to find my cutest model :
