The Lion City... In Color This Time

I showed you bits of Singapore in black and white last week.  Here is the Lion City this week -- in color this time!

1) The Cloud Forest Conservatory at Gardens by the Bay.  I think if you visit only one place in Singapore, this has to be it.  A very cool (figuratively and literally) respite from the Singapore heat.  It's like stepping in to a different dimension. Cool mists, beautiful greens all around.

2) Marina Bay.  It is such a beautiful area around here.  This is just across from the Gardens by the Bay.  In this complex, you have the Marina Bay Sands and the ArtScience Museum, as well as countless high-end boutiques and shops inside the mall.

3) Peranakan Place.  I love this place. It has kept the look and feel of the early shophouses from years past.

4/5)  Orchard Road.  The main shopping thoroughfare. 

No post about Singapore is ever complete without featuring some of its food.  Below is Singapore laksa... my mouth waters just thinking about it! It's slightly spicy, coconut-y and just all kinds of yummy.

Clockwise from upper top left:  Hainanese chicken rice, pasta carbonara, popiah, rojak
You cannot go to Singapore and not try Hainanese chicken rice. You can easily get it at the hawker centers or food courts around town.  The pasta is in there only because Z insisted on getting it.  No other reason.  Popiah --my favorite of the four featured here. I can have it every meal!  Rojak - my hubby loves it. I think it's an acquired taste.

Would you try one of these dishes?  Which one/s?

Now I am even more jealous I didn't get to go with my husband in Novemeber. He is in Korea right now working and I think he heads to China on Friday.

I loved your black and white photos, but these are so exciting, too! The colors are so vibrant. I love the action shots with people walking and slightly blurred. And the first photo of the conservatory -- amazing!
