  1. @Kuroneko I think it's a hotel, I've never seen it super close.


    @ManvsMini Singapore has some historic sites but you need to dig a little deep to find some, though I feel the main appeal for me is the cleanliness and order in the city as well as the really interesting local spirit and culture. 


    @Corsair Good to hear about the new stuff! 


    @WhiteWulfe Sending my sympathy.

    Coffee has its best flavor when fresh and hot. It starts to go bad within a couple hours of being brewed. A few days or weeks later and yes, you have rancid coffee.  


    I thought it was just Americans drinking horrible stale cold brewed coffee.  We're not known for appreciating the subtleties of fine, fresh coffees. 



    The tendrils of Starbucks reach far and wide! Singapore's local kopi is pretty good, but I prefer the tea.

    Isn't nature beautiful?


    I'm very happy to have a large garden, many birds, squirrels. toads and insects, love watching them do their thing.

    I have put up bird feeders, squirrel feeders, places for the toads to hide, squirrel and bird's nest boxes, insect hotel, butterfly hide out and feeder, and we planted many different flowers to attract bees and butterflies.

    the only ones I try to repell are the wasps..pesky little buggers.


    Adore the wild, yesterday was a reminder that human civilisation exists alongside the beautiful and dangerous natural world. Your garden sounds great! I'm not in the wasp hatred faction though I understand why it exists, saw a beautiful one with metallic blue wings yesterday (Could have been a Scolia dubia).


    A less wholesome fact about butterflies is that there's a species native to Malaya which has as a slur for a common name, that gave me a  nasty shock when I was looking at a list of different Singapore butterflies.
