Where In The World Is CJ England???

Inquiring minds want to know... And will continue to question through the month of May...

Hey all,

It's the last of the month and this will be my final pre-done blog. I hope you've enjoyed my travel writings. I know I loved sharing my adventures with you.

Over the next few weeks I'll share my thoughts and memories about those areas I didn't have a chance to do yet because of internet difficulties. Malaysia, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Nepal and China. I know there is so much more I will want to give to all of you.

For now, I'll stay with the MWF blogging schedule, with my guest blogger on Wednesday. I know I'll be very busy trying to get my writing back on track so I don't want to spread myself too thin. Also, there is a chance we may be moving soon, so I'll have that on my plate as well.

For today's blog I thought I'd share a few more pictures of our travels in Southeast Asia. Just for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy!

Here is one of my favorite places in Singapore. Haw Par has so much legend and folklore in it I could have spent months just learning all about it. The colors and creativity involved are beyond belief and I have several books planned from the stories I read about there.

We went to an island called Pulau Ubin right off of Singapore. It is very primitive and the only village is right at the boat ramp. The rest is all rainforest and small homes, with a couple of resorts sprinkled in. When we finished the day exploring, we came back to the village and had the best pepper crab on the planet, I swear!!! Inexpensive and beyond yummy!

One of the many beautiful flowers I found at the Botanical Gardens in Singapore. The Orchid Garden is definitely worth the $5.00 to go in. The many flowers, plants and landscaping were some of the best I've ever seen in all my travels.

One of the hides in Sungei Buloh where you can watch the animals come down to drink. This park was one of the best constructed places for animal and bird watching I've ever seen. Kudos to the park authorities for taking the time to do it right.

This is the Sentosa Resort where Jonathon has been working. It is big and grand and totally decadent. There is a lot more to do here, but overall it is one beautiful place to come play. We enjoyed our time at the casino.

So there you have it. A few more pictures and memories of our time in Singapore. I hope you'll keep logging in and seeing what I'm about even if I don't do a continuous travelogue. LOL I'll be back on Wednesday with another guest blogger, my good friend Denyse Bridger. She'll have a lot to say, I promise you.

Take care and remember to keep dreaming!!!

CJ England
Follow Your Dreams
