Great pics. I lived in Singapore from 1984 to 1989, obviously it has changed a great deal since then but I am glad to see that it still retains quite a lot of familiar aspects to me, based on looking at your street scenes. I like the mix of modern and colonial architecture in Singapore, I am glad that despite all the modern buildings that have gone up in the past two decades they still look after their architectural heritage.

By the way when you were in Sentosa did you see any of the WWII fortresses and guns?

Singapore is the epitome of an Asian fantasy land. Where east meets west, trying to be something its not and getting away with it brilliantly.

I really love the colonial architecture in the old parts, places like Geylang, where the turists don't go are magic and are so far from the Singapore we are fed in the media.

Oh, and Singapore is probably the best food city on earth. A fine combination of asian fusan meets indian, indonesian, thai and of course the best from the west.

Love it - bring on more pics.

Thanks everyone. I'm really sorry I couldn't post more updates soon enough. But I'm trying to post a lot more before this thread turns a year old.

Being able to restore their shophouses and other heritage buildings is one of the things I most admire in Singapore. Though I'm sure they've encountered trouble once in a while with this I think many cities who wish to preserve the identity of their heritage should look up to Singapore's programs. And for motivation, they should see the wonders it did to the city's overall impression. It's really good.

No, I wasn't able to do that in Sentosa. I failed to research on that one. Had I known that there were WWII stuff in there I would've allotted at least another day in the island.

I disagree with the last part. I don't think the place is trying to be what it's not, at least not anymore. It has become what it is, a modern place who clings to its Oriental heritage in its refusal to be like just every other modern city.

Also with the one on cuisine, I agree that the choices are simply astounding and for every type of budget too. But I can imagine many major cities can come up with equally impressive array of offerings.

New photos up in a short while.
