Highlights in Singapore

Omg! There are some things that all travelers should do. We totally enjoyed ourselves here...but again, remember, we're into NATURE & FOOD...not a lot of shopping. CLICK HERE for recent photos of Singapore Zoo. More pictures to come soon.

National Orchid Garden CLICK HERE for the Orchid Garden

There are soooo many beautiful species of orchids here that it is to die for ...for those avid Orchid growers like Chhimi. There were so many hybrids that was wonderful to see them. We spent hours...literally half-day in humid & hot weather just to view these lovely flowers. Definitely To Do #1.

Singapore Zoo & Breakfast with Orangutans
This is very very neat for us. We saw monkeys free swing from the trees. You won't see this at the San Diego Zoo. Plus we got to eat a big breakfast with Orangutans!! It is the most awesome thing for us. Definitely To Do #2

Lord of the Rings Exhibition
People, this is the only exhibition of LOTR in Asia and its only going to be in Boston, MA in August 2004. We had a lot of Oooohs and Aaaaahs here because we saw a lot of the costumes and stuff. See Chhimi's Web Log dedicated to LOTR. Definitely To Do #3 for avid LOTR fans.

We got to try both types of infamous crab in Singapore. The Chili Sri Lanka Crab made with lots of chili sauce, along with fish sauce.....finger-licking good. The other one is Pepper Sri Lanka Crab...oh man,....this one has a dry kick with lots of black pepper. Aww quite yummy but Chhimi says both styles only ranks #3 in comparison to his Thailand Crab Curry.
We just wished we had more time to visit the Mount Faber, Jarung Bird Park, and other scenic areas. Well worth it just to visit Singapore for its greenery and fabulous food.
