Singapore - St.Andrew's Cathedral

Thought we would pop in here to cool off a bit, but it was almost as hot inside as it was outside!
Found some stained glass though...

Singapore - Park Hotel

I don't seem to have taken a photo of the outside of the hotel but here's the rooftop swimming pool and bar which was enjoyed by SWMBO.
The hotel was excellent, by the way

Singapore - Marina Bay

This is the shopping mall at Marina Bay

Some big designer names

Yes, there's a man made canal in the middle of it

Spectacular water feature

The water feature from outside - a big plug hole!

More Singapore Flowers

A few more flowers in the botanical gardens

We then headed back to the city and crossed this bridge on our way to a shopping mall at the harbourside - it's still very hazy, and actually got quite dark for a while at 3:00 pm

Couldn't resist it!

Well, I had to didn't I? (See previous posting)

Singapore Botanical Gardens

Very hot and steamy in Singapore - had to keep wiping the camera lens!

Had to travel all this way to get my best ever photo of a kingfisher

To Singapore!

Leaving Heathrow

We arrived early in the day and couldn't get in to our hotel room just yet so we headed for the waterfront and took a boat trip


The haze is due to smoke from illegal forest fires in Indonesia.
It was quite alarming as we came in to land as we could smell burning in the aeroplane cabin - which is not good news usually but it must have been as we came through the smoke layer in the atmosphere

The architects seem to be trying to outdo one another?
