Back in Singapore, my dad hired an entertainment troupe for our dinner. Here’s a Chinese Face Changer (Bian Lian)

There were even TWO belly dancers!

After Jeff’s family arrives, we went on a tour around Singapore. I felt like a tourist myself, since many of the sights were new to me as well, including the super trees at Gardens by the Bay. I’m continuously amazed by how much the Singapore landscape changes by everytime I return

The Cloud Forest Dome at Gardens by the Bay – so lush and gorgeous

It took two tries before we were able to visit the Orchid Gardens within the Botanical Gardens… well at least the weather’s not as oppressively hot during monsoon season

Love this view of Gardens by the Bay from the observation desk of Marina Bay Sands. I remember how the entire area used to be just a vast empty grassland, perfect for kite flying

View of East Coast Park (and even Malaysia, in the far off background)

I wonder who rides the flyer anymore, now that there’s a much better view of the Singapore skyline (and the formula 1 racetrack) from MBS
