I had a nice vacation in Bali, Indonesia - stayed at Club Med.

Beautiful beach - seen from my lounging chair.

Kayak and wind surfing are some of many activities that were available at the resort.

Resident Salvator Monitors and a heron at a pond.

Singapore visit

I was in Singapore last week - 30+ degrees Celsius weather. It was very different from Tokyo where everyone wears jackets at this time of the year.

I could take a walk to the famous statue of Marlion.

The view of the new Sands casino towers seen from the top of the tallest building in Singapore.

Here's the Skypark deck of the Sands.

The new supreme court building with a circular top - seen from the Skypark.

Singapore's business district - it is now one of the largest financial centers in the world.

The riverfront has many restaurants - Chinese, Indian, Malay, etc.

Singapore has definitely become a great island nation - clean, safe, and vibrant!
