I finally got round to sorting my honeymoon photo's this weekend - it feels like such a long time ago. We spent two days in Singapore before heading on the the Philippines. It was a whirlwind trip and we managed to pack in quite a bit during our stay. I had never been before so was unsure of what to expect, I have to say I was pleasantly surprised - I loved the mix of modern skyscrapers mixed in with colourful pockets of China Town and Little India - it felt like 10 cities in one. Here are some of my favourite snap shots.

Amazing coloured buildings in Little India - this coloured house was my favourite
I can't write a post on Singapore without mentioning the shopping, it is incredible! Good job I was exhausted because my credit card would have taken a serious battering, the malls alone make New York shopping look low key. Whilst the air-conditioned malls provided a much needed rest from the heat, I can never resist a street lined with stalls selling tat. In China Town I brought colourful chopsticks which were about a pound and in Little India I brought a gold Indian necklace that has proved pretty useful since I have been home. The best shopping street was Haji Lane, I didn't know anything about it until I got back and did a bit of research, its perfect if like me you can't resist small boutiques selling quirky one-off's. I only made it into a few shops as we had to get to the zoo. I found this site which has a good summary of the shops but I would recommend a visit to Green Poppies and The Salad Shop. I really wish I found this place, I think it would be my dream shop to own one day.
I'll post the photo's from The Philippines soon they're the perfect antidote to the sporadic summer we're having.
