Singapore Zoo - one of the most visited place in Singapore and also our favorite place. It contains a great variety of species and very educational. A day is definitely not enough to see everything. We visited the Zoo, Birdpark and Night Safari within a month using a combi ticket.

My first visit to Singapore was in 1996.  I couldn’t really remember anything except a bit of Sentosa.  Never have I found this place appealing nor had I ever thought about living here.  Nevertheless the opportunity of experiencing life in Singapore did excited us.

This is the place where I picked up my favorite sport tennis again, was keen on learning more about photography and Lightroom, dreamed to be become a travel writer, and got a taste of oil/acrylic painting.   Apparently I have no gift in any of these.   Yet search is privilege, found is luck and a lot of hard work.
