    Thank you, far too kind. Let me know when you get some time in Singapore, I'll make sure you taste the local delicacies. I guess by then you should have enough of orchids.

    Cheers

I can imagine how nice and warm is there - here we have a winter for a long time, the day is reduced to a minimum and every few days we have about 20 cm of new snow - tomorrow comes a new shipment...I do become lively seeing this beautiful photos so pls continue with contributions.

    Over here, we do not know what it is like to feel snow under the feet. Well, unless we deliberately fly to somewhere to feel it.

    However, November and December do bring huge amount of rainfall. That particular day is one occasion where its bright and sunny during the day and heavy rainfall during the night.

    Cheers

    A visit in Nov 2011 to coincide with the WOC would be ideal. I know I'll be there and hope Amey will be there as well.Hope to meet up with members of OTF then. Should be very interesting.

    Vincent better start saving up to 'belanja' (treating us to the famous Singapore food) Hehehehe.

    When we moved to Florida, i'd made up my mind it was one of the prettiest places on earth, second only to Jamaica. I now need to add Singapore...the pictures you've posted show how amazing it is as well. Thanks for sharing with us.

    "Belanja" is not a problem, as long as someone shows up

    Thanks for the kind comments. It is a very pretty place no doubt. Minus the high living standards, the cost of living, taxes, high residential prices...etc...you get the picture.
