Singapore – Botanical Garden

I won’t have enough time to do all the things I had listed before travelling to Singapore this year. It is my fourth visit, and there are still many places and areas I have not been to and that I do want to visit. That is the excuse for another visit next year!

Today, after a hearty brunch somewhere in Clarke Quays, where I actually got to sign my book Half the World for a lovely fan who got out of bed after only three hours sleep because of wedding celebrations, just to meet with me, we headed towards the Botanic Garden in Singapore. It is absolutely amazing.  I met with Schubert. But that’s really besides the point. the orchids and the tropical plants and shrubs and trees were just perfect.

P1020220 three yellows

P1020261 orange pink yellow












All incredibly beautiful. And then the forest – this is what Singapore used to be: not this vast and overbuilt city that is what we are in awe with now, but a tropical forest.
