A Nice Catch (Prawning, Bishan Park, Singapore)

A friend of mine invited me to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon on the beaches, bars, clubs and restaurants of Sentosa Island. However, Singapore having a wet and humid climate, you better prepare for plan B, since it might start raining at any time. April is in the so-called inter-monsoon period, and thunderstorms, usually severe, occur in the early morning and afternoon. Due to the humidity, it also feels a lot hotter than it is.

Singapore Zoo: Going to the Dogs

Is the Singapore Zoo really worth a visit, or can it only be recommended to student psychologists researching the deeper dungeons of human behavior? In a common zoo, one is used to endure crying babies, monkey behavior of noisy teenagers and bickering parents before having the privilege to experience uninterested wards pointing to the smelly cages of nameless, unhappy and mostly sleeping animals. But no, as I found out, Asian families really do enjoy a visit to the Singapore zoo and the kids behaved a lot more civilised than their Western counterparts (yes, I am a parent too).
