Thanks to a very dodgy old laptop, I couldn't post to tell you we have been to - wonderful Singapore! Some of you will know this is not our first trip :) Singapore is a place that we both feel so comfortable and at home. We haven't had a holiday, or any break for a long time, so when the opportunity unexpectedly arose, we had to take it!
This trip was especially great as we met some of my on-line artist friends! I belong to a great Facebook artists group, and several friends there are also members of the Urban Sketchers, who some of you may be familiar with. These lovely people made space in their busy lives to take us out and generally spoil us! I was fortunate enough to be taken sketching, and also have a wonderful tour of the amazing art shops in the city. We were both made so welcome, and had a truly fantastic time.
Urban Sketchers Singapore's book, We love Tao Payoh as a gift from my friend and super talented artist Patrick Ng. With me is the lovely Chris Ng ( no relation!) and Tony Chua, (in the wonderful hat!). I also had another wonderful afternoon sketching, and learning a lot from the great artistry of Francis Theo. Thank you all again, you are such a fantastic bunch of people.
OK, here's a quick taster of our trip, I'll post more photos once I have sorted them out, but I took over 700!
Gardens by the Bay, with the Cloud and Flower Domes and some of the SuperTrees. Garden loving friends, it is indeed out of this world, and I know you will want to see more!
Marina Bay Sands. 56 floors up and the most incredible views from the Observation deck. ( I would not want to stay there though, even if I had the money; it is incredible, but way, way too high for me!) I had to see it though :).
SEA Life Aquarium
Fascinating and beautiful.
And so much more. Hope you're all well and happy, I'm looking forward to catching up with all my blogging friends soon!x
