Singapore has some really pretty Hindu and Buddhist temples – I love the detail in the designs on the ceilings and walls.

Like Chinatowns all over the world, Chinatown in Singapore is an amazing array of colourful lanterns, shops full of weird and wonderful foods, and street vendors selling all things delicious.

Lanterns in Chinatown… the humidity created condensation on the lens, creating this misty effect…
And then the food… I love anything Asian, so I was in heaven in Singapore. Had to try two of the “national” dishes: chicken rice and chill crab. Yum.
Chicken rice: chicken and… you guessed it, rice!
Try getting this sucker open… I couldn’t!
