Sentosa walk

There are three ways to enter Sentosa. You can go in by car paying $2 per person in the car and two dollars for the car. You can take the Skytrain from the top floor of Vivocity and pay $3 per person. Lastly, you can walk along the year-old boardwalk linking Vivocity Promenade and Sentosa island and pay $1 per person and the best part is that you can take the skytrain back for free. The last option is the best when the weather is cool and the sun's rays are mild as was the case this morning. We had to pass through the Integrated Resort where the tourists were concentrated in order to reach the jungle trail for our walk. We spent only a dollar each on Sentosa and nothing could compare to the the lush greenery, the fresh air and the absence of crowds along the jungle trail for a mental and physical recharge.

Merry Christmas to all!

For the first time in many years I set up a pretty Christmas tree in my house because my son said that when he was small he had always looked forward to seeing our Christmas tree when he came home from school in the evening. I never knew that the tree meant so much to him. So, it was not very difficult to have the tree back again and not very costly either because everything was from Giant.

Lunar eclipse in Singapore

Tonight there is a total lunar eclipse that I happened to see by chance. I took these shots of the moon at around ten o'clock. The next such event will take place in 2014. I am not a fan of astronomy and so I did not check on the eclipse after spending about 20 minutes looking at the moon. It was enough that I was able to witness a portion of this natural phenomenon.
