The last part of our Southern Ridges Walk took us along the Canopy Walk to Kent Ridge Park and finally to Science Park I. It was an amazing morning with lots to see and photograph and I really enjoyed nature, the city, silence, tranquility and the lush greenery inmidst the Singaporean urban jungle.

A wonderful place to be for all nature lovers and photographers is Hort Park. It brings together gardening-related, recreational, educational, research and retail activities. There’s something for young and old – a beautiful, tranquil & colorful place to be.
The journey continues… we walk along the Forest Walk, the Singing Forest – and yes, it literally sings! I never heard such a variety of birds singing like there! – and Alexandra Arch. It’s amazing how nature and man-made architecture and civilisation blends in.
Today we walked the Southern Ridges – it’s a unique trail that spans from Mount Faber to Kentridge Park and to Labradore Nature Reserve. It is amazing for nature lovers and photographers. We started early in the morning and it was simply stunning and breathtaking. The Fauna and Flora of Singapore is a beautiful one and even though I took some nice snapshots, they can’t match nature’s real beauty.
For part I of the walk I will show you some photos from Marang Trail to the Forest Walk.
… when you are at home but you feel like you are on vacation and enjoying life.

‘Oh no’… this was my first thought because this weeks’ challenge is definitely a challenge for me. I normally don’t do any selfies or self portraits. But… it’s really a nice idea to see the faces behind the words and photos and that is the reason why I decided to participate. For wonderful ‘selfies’ have a look @ THE GIRL THAT DREAMS AWAKE (:
HELLO! Nice to meet you (:
In April I started a project with my old wooden gecko. I really loved this one but the wood withstood sunshine, wind and tropical rain. That’s why it was a kind of an eyesore at our rooftop terrace. The wood was cracked and the color was more grey than brown. So I started to think about painting it and stumbled across dot painting in the internet. I read a lot about it and I really like the patterns that are used by Aboriginal artists and the meanings behind the paintings and patterns. I found a very helpful information about Aboriginal Symbols, bought acrylic colors, skewers, some plastic table cloths, cotton buds, brushes and plastic plates. The ‘dotting’ was really fun to do and very contemplative – I loved every second ‘dotting around’. When I was finished with painting, I sealed it with clear varnish so it can withstand sunshine, wind and tropical rain. And now our ‘dotted’ gecko is an eye candy again.
I really love movies and therefore it’s no wonder that I love cinemas too. It’s the flair, the atmosphere, the mixed popcorn (sweet and salty – yummy) and coke, the people – and of course the huge screens. There are some cinemas in Singapore that I really like but one is definitely something special. It’s The Projector – and as soon as you step out of the lift you’ll find yourself in a totally different time. Back in the days, back in the Fifties and Sixties and Seventies. And the movies there are not the typical blockbusters, no – they show independent movies, good old movies we all love, movies ‘out of the box’, movies from all over the world and for everyone’s taste. One big plus for me is the sweet popcorn… it’s caramelly and really, really nice when you mix it with the salty one. You’ll get the good old paperbags for it and not the modern boxes with promo all over.
So when you’re in Singapore, check it out… it’s definitely worth it!

This time I will show you some impressions from Fort Canning Park (it’s amazing to take your time and just stroll around) and Asian Civilisations Museum. I love this museum and I remember that I was there in 2010 for the very first time when we even didn’t know that we would live here one day.
Together with my dear friend I explored Singapore again – after living here for almost five years. It’s amazing what this city has to offer and it always is a pleasure to indulge your senses. So I decided to showcase some of the photos I took at places I already have been years ago or – and I’m not kidding – places I never have been before. The first series show the Singapore Flyer in a different – colorful – light and there are so many gorgeous plants – including a LEGO Rafflesia – in the Cloud Forest. Enjoy! (:
