Its the final count down - Singapore series
Last night I was gifted a box Lindt Swiss thins from a friend. It’s a chocolate I would want to safeguard for me in locker. While returning from train station I saw this couple walking along. The dad was carrying a small and cutest baby. Being me, I opened a conversation. The one month old angel’s name is Valarie. Valarie then yawned, a most beautiful one and rubbed her eyes to look at ‘the talking’ me. That was enough for Lindt to find its way from mine to her mom’s hand. The most important things in life are not THINGS. And Giving is more satisfying than receiving.

Garden festivel - 08Let’s start the countdown of the attractions you have been waiting so far. I narrowed it down to 10 places. For anyone who wants to visit Singapore the first website you should be looking at is this. It has got all the information you need for your trip.
We have already seen how green Singapore is in this post. One thing my mom liked about Singapore is that there is at least one park, walk-able distance for each bunch of apartments. And if these are only normal parks, imagine how the botanical garden would look like. Go green with Botanical and Orchid gardens of Singapore.
No wonder Orchids are adoredAt number 9 is Marina barrage. Do you ever wonder how a small island that gets rainfall all through the year never gets flooded? Singapore is famous for many reasons and one of them is how they manage the water bodies. Marina barrage acts as a barrier during high tides. If Singapore river gets flooded during high tides, there are 1600kW electric motors (equivalent to that of plane) that can flush out all the water, keeping Singapore safe from drowning. The eco exhibition halls, green roof and fountains lit by colourful lights makes it perfect place to hang out by night. You can catch the beautiful skyline of Singapore from here.

These pics doesnot do justice to the real experienceWhat is the point of being in shopping island without visiting its largest retailer destination? Vivo city – the biggg.. shopping mall, takes up the 8th place not just for its sheer variety of shops but also for the entertainment it offers. You can easily spend a day here roaming around, shopping, eating and also relaxing in the knee-deep-pool terrace garden. The architecture of this building leaves me speechless every time. The terrace is not flat but wavy and they grow trees on it! If you are here around Christmas you can check out one of the largest Christmas tree and startling stage shows.

Thats last year christmas tree at vivo city - its several times bigger than me ;)The royal seven goes to the loyal orchard road. The Singapore’s trade mark destination for ages. It’s more than a shopping street to say, its lifestyle! You would be tired of counting the number of shopping malls and choosing the best of them. During Christmas /New Year the street literally lights up. Every year unique and creative decorations are made for the entire road, all the way to the President’s residence at the end of it. This year they have special lights that look like rain falling and dripping from the trees.
Last year at Orchard road
