Singapore: First Glance

Though I have lots of other posts planned on my trip to Singapore, I thought I'd start by giving you an impression of what it's like over there. Enjoy!

One of the first things that sprang to mind when I first heard "Singapore" was architecture and skyscrapers. And it was quite surreal to see all the buildings there.

But there's also lots of nature to be found. This was the view from our room and it perfectly combined both the tropical and the urban.

I'm not exaggerating when I call this place paradise. I mean the pigeons are in rainbow and even the bird crap is orange.

And they happen to have a pastel McDonald's!

I stuck to more local cuisine though, along with some tasty treats from the Japanese supermarket.

I really enjoyed seeing lots and lots of green. Being a city girl and nature freak all at once, I felt right at home.

Singapore is pretty at night too. All buildings are beautifully lit and there's a stunning light show twice a night.

On my birthday I got to go on a helicopter. And though I wasn't allowed to take any pictures there, I can show you this nice shot I took from a building.

I also got a lovely chocolate cake and a nice dinner with my family. The band even sang me "Happy Birthday"!

I took loads and loads of pictures that I'll share with you in some themed posts.

So keep a look out for more posts about my trip!
