And more pictures still...

We're both having a little trouble adjusting to the the time change...we were both up at 2am on Monday...Hopefully Tuesday will be better!!!

1. At Snake Temple, Malaysia (altar with snakes...yes they are alive)

Pit Vipers I think...the incense is supposed to subdue/calm them (?!)

2. Kek Lok Si Temple, Malaysia
Columns are all marble! The intricate designs are amazing.

3. Khoo Kongsi, Malaysia -A Wealthy Family Temple, built only for the Khoo family

4. Downtown Singapore

5. Night Safari, Singapore
Didn't get good pictures here because no flash photography was allowed - took a tram ride through the attraction where animals could come up to the tram if they wanted to say hello to a human!

6. Orchid Garden, Singapore
More varieties of orchids and other plants than you can count! Only some orchids were in bloom when we went but I can only imagine what the place looks like when it's peak season!!!

7. Foot Spa, Singapore
These are everywhere in Singapore (and I think they are gaining popularity in the U.S.). Basically little fish, "Dr. Fish" as I saw one poster refer to them, nibble away at the dead skin cells on your feet. It tickles :) We did it twice while in Singapore - once with a back massage while we soaked our feet!

8. Aunt and Hao Han - he's so tall!!!

9. Singapore Flyer
Looks like a big ferris wheel - highest point is 42 stories. Let's you see a lot of the country, full of good info about the country.

One of the capsules on the Flyer...each can hold up to 28 people. Takes 30 minutes to make one round - highly recommended!
