Regional workshops in the city state of Singapore.
During 2011, I had the opportunity to attend a series of regional workshops in Singapore. The workshops gave me the ability to contribute to improving processes across the region. I also had some time to explore the city, visiting the city's attractions over the course of weekends and evenings.
Jul 2011: A whole day to explore Singapore, including riding the MRT, walking through colonial Singapore, visiting Jurong bird park and walking the streets of Chinatown.
Aug 2011: While the stay was shorter, it was a good opportunity to contribute to the workshop and catch up with my work colleagues, as well as spend an evening exploring the Tanjong Pagar neighbourhood at night. There was also a little time before the flight back home to visit the interesting butterfly garden at Changi Airport.
Sep 2011: Arriving earlier in the day, I took the opportunity to explore new areas of the city as well as revisit some familiar places.
Oct 2011: An experienced traveller now, and familiar with some of the main attractions in Singapore, I took the opportunity to explore a new area, spending a few hours on the island of Sentosa.
May 2012: An opportunity to return to Singapore to attend a regional workshop. I had one free night in which to take some photos of the city centre with my new camera.
Oct 2012: A visit to the historic heart of Singapore, followed by a stroll in the new Gardens by the Bay.
