I arrived in Singapore two days ago from colddddd NZ (been away 14 years). Now I am feeling the heat and my body is still coping and adjusting. Thanks goodness my sister housed me in one her best aircon rooms.
I was wondering if I can meet up with you wonderful people in one of your usual gatherings of "friends of similar interests". Is there a slide show on this weekend or an outdoor shoot?
I will be in Singapore till Jun 30th before leaving for China.
My S’pore mobile : 97782365. Txt me, call me, whatever … hopefully.
Hope to catch up with you folks.

Will be out and about in my usual practice ground in Chinese Garden / Japanese Garden on sat morning….Be prepared for hot hot weather & no birds …..Havent got a single keeper shot yet from this place but still, this is my favorite place for being most accessible (for one without wheels…. ) .

Hi SC, next week I will be busy shooting my nephew’s wedding, which was why I was back besides seeing my 90-yr mom who just survived a near fatal illness and got a new lease of life (it’s a miracle!).
Peacceful dove, do you shoot at the Mandai orchid garden? I remember it was a nice place. Last Feb (2008) during a brief stopover, I went to the Zoo to shoot birds … but co-incidentally my lens caught a baby orang utan which hung itself on a rope! My old photojournalistic instinct told me that it was a news picture that cannot go unprinted so I got that published in the Straits Times and some other papers as well. That happened a week after Ah Meng’s death.
Anyway see how it goes.June 19, 2009 at 12:14 pm #291727peacefuldoveMember
Mandai Orchid Garden is a nice & neat place – sure place to get sunbirds & spiderhunters
I dont frequent MOG because the public bus journey takes way too long – the direct bus (~10mins thereabout) from Marsiling MRT to MOG & Zoo only operates on Sunday and public holidays. But if you go there, i am sure you will meet one or two photographers there as well…..popular place…….Good luck. Another easy and popular place with bird photographers is Botanical Garden….
about the baby orang utan…read the news too.June 19, 2009 at 1:52 pm #291728
mostly garden birds peaceful dove. i still remember the little spiderhunters which frequent the ginger flowers, amongst other.
