But first, a very happy birthday to [ profile] the_little_owl! I was hoping to get a nice owl photo at the zoo to turn into a card, but they were all out of owls. So you'll have to make do with a naked Roman-themed one from one of my older photos of Herculaneum.

Onto the rest of the photos )

Zoo photos

Back home, finally! My bed, my very own lumpy uncomfortable bed, I've missed you. And the hot shower - I've been having freezing cold showers for the last week, and I don't care how hot and humid Singapore is, I NEED my daily scalding shower.

Now, time to relax and recover spend next three weeks frantically finishing up the literature review and writing a million thank you cards and going through all the hassle and expense of getting my name changed. Eh, that can all wait until tomorrow, today is for sorting out all my Singapore zoo photos.

First up, monkeys.

More monkeys and apes )
motetus: (food / dim sum)
Well, feeling much better and back to sleeping normally (now that the holiday is mostly over, har). I'm doing what Singapore is best for: eating masses of food, lazing around waiting for the next mealtime, then eating masses of food. I am going to have such painful cravings for hawker stall food when I go back.

The final wedding party is over and done with, hurrah. This one was probably the least fun of them all - the most entertaining part was watching my very drunken brother (currently a rancher on a cattle farm in Australia, soon to be a trolley dolly for British Airways - interesting career path) try to hit on my cousin's underage friend. That was certainly better than when he started telling me about his other sexual conquests in graphic detail. What is wrong with my family?

So, onto the obligatory photo part of this post. )
motetus: (x-files / scully)
...where I am bored out of my mind. I hate doing nothing on holiday, and my camera is sulking because I've only taken it out once this week. But we've spent enough time with family now to be able to escape - tomorrow we'll take a train down to the city and spend it wandering around, taking photos and trying not to keel over and fall asleep in the street.

Ah yes, sleep. Bloody jet lag, a week should be long enough for it to go away and leave me alone. Mind you, the wife and I didn't exactly help by taking a nap this afternoon, sleeping through the alarm and waking up four hours later. Tonight should be fun.

Oh, and I've discovered I'm allergic to something at the house we stayed in in Singapore, and the symptoms are still hanging around after a few days in Australia. Which is odd, because I've made it to 25 without ever being allergic to anything.

Anyway, here's a couple of photos from our wander around Singapore's city center. I could do without the heat there (winter in Australia is lovely however, but I do wish I had packed at least one jumper) but the food makes it worthwhile. I introduced the wife to roti prata and he now fully understands why I've been bitching about not being able to get it in the UK for the past 6 years.

(not pictured: her older German partner who was wearing the most amazing pair of lime green trousers. Wish I'd got a photo of him, he was quite impressive)

P.S. A very happy belated birthday to [ profile] sue_chose_this! Hope your day was lovely.
