Singapore Half Day Tour

It was about two months ago since CS Ling join me for nature photography in Singapore. We have been trying to schedule another outing without success due to her super busy work schedule.

Finally she is able to spare some time this morning (confirmed only yesterday), thanks to the long week end. We visited 3 areas this morning! We start off from Bidadari. Bidadari is a defunct cemetery and all the graves have been exhumed pending for redevelopment.

We spent about 2 hours there before we proceed to Singapore Botanic Garden. Since Ling wanted to recce Wallace Trail for her upcoming workshop with a group of primary school students, we have prata at SBG as lunch and follow by Dairy Farm Nature Park for the Wallace Trail.

These are some of the photos we took this morning... A rather uncommon and beautiful Blue Pansy
