Keeping fit

One of my favorite places to walk is sentosa island. In recent years, it has constantly been developed, and I enjoy the food outlets on the beaches and the convenient transportation on the island. Soon a new mono-rail service will bring visitors directly from the Harbourfront MRT station to the beach terminal, seen in this photo, and they can transfer to the Siloso Beach tram waiting for them.

Last week I also took a turn at the historic Fort Canning which is just behind Wesley Methodist Church, where I was attending the Lenten prayer service.
Beside the Fort Gate, is one of the large Banyan trees that grow in the Park. In the photo, you can see the aerial roots which have grown from the branches downwards to the ground. They begin life as flimsy threads, but after many years grow to look like tree trunks.

Orchard Road

i have a travel log, but decided that friends might like to follow me on my daily wanderings in my home city: singapore. I just received a little Ranger v-cam from my insurance agent as a gift, and am surprised what it can do. so here are some examples
This is Far East Plaza where I alight from the bus. I sometimes buy my morning papers here.

Then I walked on Steven's Road to my hairdresser's and passed one of our top girls' schools, Raffles Girls' secondary school, and took a photo of the lovely rain tree at the junction of Balmoral and Stevens road. There are many such lovely old trees all over Singapore.

I went for lunch at a japanese restaurant in united square, which I also visit often.
Later in the evening I passed by Raffles City and the Singapore Arts Museum on my way to rehearsal
