Singapore

A staycation

On a week-long break from work in June, I found myself exploring my home city like a tourist on a budget. The result of that was that I managed to achieve the ideal staycation. Not surprisingly, I spent a lot of time outdoors and in the sunshine. It was freeing and invigorating – it reaffirmed my love for the city. With the nation's Golden Jubilee celebrations almost in full swing, it all felt very timely. Flip on for a few snippets taken in and around the Little Red Dot. ❤️ #SG50

I got to know a little bit about Gundam...

... and I enjoyed a free exhibition highlighting archaeology in Singapore.

I stopped to capture light at different times of the day...

... and water under different kinds of light.

There was also time for a bit of trekking...

... and that's when I encountered a few white-crested laughingthrushes, who really demonstrated their reptilian ancestry. They weren't shy at all. They chattered among themselves and lunged forward, in the manner of raptors locking in on a target – me essentially, because they thought I had food. That was pretty amazing.

And then, I saw this during the weekend that love won in the U.S. – what a synchronous treat.

It was the perfect opportunity for me to explore the gardens by the city's bay area...

... and I was really into all the leaves and flowers everywhere.

Everything was perfectly timed – I caught the sunset from the cool confines of the Cloud Forest...

... and got to enjoy the nighttime CBD-scape – the first time in a long while – at Marina City Park.
