Eastwards ho!

The land where sun rose earlier....150 minutes earlier actually...


The sun rises in the sky




The country of the size as Bangalore city still poses as the ideal to the politicos of namma city for its cleanliness, for the skyscrapers, for the order, and for what not! While our politicos have forever been Singaporing Bengaluru (on the other hand in the far west, a big set of people have been complaining about getting "Bangalored"), my curiosity about this little land to the east has been growing for the attention it has grabbed...


My rendezvous with Singapore started with the first sight of a tiny hazy faraway land...


First sight of Singapore


And grew in size and intensity gradually...


As the flight got closer



What followed in the days to come, were bursts of culture, touristy sights, sophistication, impeccable order across the city, a model I'd assumed never existed...Here are a few glimpses of this beautiful city I'll remember for setting the standards very high


Biz district


Name any global bank, and you can spot it


A capsule of Singapore Flyer


Singapore Botanical Garden


Far away view of Flyer


Man made tree structure with real plants


View from the flyer



Also a season for celebration...of the Chinese new year...the year of the Goat / Sheep!

Chinese new year parade


Flower Show in the Botanical Garden


A busy street


Chinatown at night


From the driver's point of view


A piece of art that has evolved over the 50 years of its independence...and worth every GASP and SIGH it inspires!!


Gorgeousness in B  &W


We LOVE SG!
