A Day in the City of Sun

This is how the morning and night of one of my Mondays looked like.

Singapore’s major attractions is not Marina Bay, Gardens by the Bay, or Clarke Quay. It is Ya Kun with majestic kaya-butter toast and kopi-C.

A great place for bird-listening in the middle of the city …

… and enjoying the colours of life.

After two years in Singapore I finally tried durian (in durian sago)! Wasn’t easy, bus I made it. I still don’t like the smell, but the sago was great.

  1. Good morning!
    You really do love Singapore, don’t you.
    You make me feel I could almost love it too.
    If it were not so very fat away and probably too darned hot for me I would consider coming to visit you. It would be amazing to have you as a guide.
    So pleased we met in Cochin.
    Much love
    Tessa
