Caught by surprise in the middle of a challenging exercise with the chopsticks.

Two cats I saw in a street market.

Ballons on the same street, which name I do not remember, not far from hotel.

The Lion of Singapore in Sentosa Island, before going up to his head to make some photos and the battery failed.

A pedonal bridge to cross a large avenue, close to hotel.
A view of the Boat Quay.
Sculptures in Boat Quay promenade, close to hotel.

I tried to find this friendly place I knew in 1999, to have a coffee and a nata cake (portuguese cake), but it does not exist any more.

View of Clarke Quay and Swissôtel Merchant Court, where SMW-3 AR&RSC meeting is being held by Singapore Telecom.

Visitors Centre in Orchard Road. The weather at night was around 34º C and 75% humidity and no wind, what makes you feel much hotter.

Happy Birthday Singapore - Last Saturday, before leaving to the airport of Changi I had some free time walking around Singapore and observed how they commemorated the nation's 40th year of independence and take some photos with my new camera. Have a look on this link.

Esplanade, Theatres on the Bay, also lovingly dubbed “the Durian” by locals due to the shape similar to the "King of the fruits".
In the Esplanade at night, posing near the big letters "I WAS HERE"
View from Esplanade in early morning with Fullerton Hotel, built in 1928, on the left side.
Detail of Thian Hock Keng Temple in Chinatown. Thian Hock Keng is the oldest and most important Hokkien temple in Singapore. Known as the temple of the goddess of the sea and protector of all seamen, the temple contains relics brought from China which are said to be many hundred of years old. The building is supported only on wood poles. Of the two pagodas at either sides of the temple, one is used to contain ancestral tablets.
There are a lot of nice sculptures in Singapore and for me this is the best.
