News around the world..

Watching the news today and a hurricane is on it's way to New Orleans, will it come to Houston? I doubt that, last month another hurricane was on it's way, alot of warnings on TV, people were even told not to go to work. The hurricane never came, it did not even rain where we live. My husband had a day off work and we had a nice lunch together. Hopefully the same will happen this time.
Here in Singapore we are concerned about the latest news about demonstrations and closed airports in Thailand. We are supppose to go there tomorrow for a weeks vacation, will the airport be open? The embassy is closed on Saturdays so nobody can tell if it is safe to go or not. Isn't life exciting....

Here we are sightseeing in Singapore:

This is Emerald Hill, a street with old houses that are renovated.

Visiting Chinatown.

This is from Sentosa, a small island connected to Singapore.

Raffles hotel, yes, we did go to the Long Bar to have the famous Singapore sling.

Another image from the hotel.
