Hi Sheda
I see you have made it the the photo a day section you will have to put some on of sunny Singapore.

BTW the Wooches is as high as Mount Faber but there no cable car or food available at the top.

Hi Sheda

Would love to see pictures of Katong and East Coast area if you have them.... or River Valley Rd near Killiney Road anywhere in fact!!!
Just as long as it is the Lion City and its environs. How about the old GPO building now it is a hotel???


Comment by Mick on 21st July 2009 at 13:02
You should have said Tricia I could show you them sort of photos till the cows come home.


Comment by Mick on 21st July 2009 at 13:07
PS Trish I remember the GPO being located there and its now called the Fullerton Hotel.

I stayed there when it first opened.

Hello Mick
Have been back twice now, and hoping to go again in not too distant future.

We lived in Katong before moving to River Valley Road. Last time we went they were just doing the GPO conversion. Posted many a parcel home from there at Christmas in the old days. Temasek my favourite place in all the world.
