Punggol Waterway - Lor Halus

This is my second visit in 4 years, more developed than the previous time with more links.

It is extremely hot in the afternoon, do slap on much sun protection if you are planning on the late morning or afternoon walk as most trees are still very small and could not provide much shades.

If you are planning to come in the early evening, do remember your insect repellent as the mosquitoes are quite fierce.

Tulipmania Floral Display 2015 - Gardens by the Bay

Finally make time for this in its third edition.
This year, the setting is colorful magical fairy tales.

There are Cinderella‘s carriage, Rapunzel’s tower, and the ginger bread house of Hansel and Gretel. There is even a red tulip named “Singapore”!

Very pretty sight indeed.

Mt Takao from Tokyo Shinjuku Station part 1

A day spent hiking
   
Brochure in Japanese
Mt Takao is easily accessible from Tokyo city.  We took the KEIO line which took less than an hour to reach the foot of the mountain. There are many ways to hike up the mountain with various levels of difficulty.
The base station for start the hike
You can ease the way up by choosing one of the 2 type of cable cars. The first one is the one you are seeing below. The other type is chair lift. Both send you half way up the mountain.
