      Thanks so much! Coming from the person who takes such amazing photos of Singapore, that’s quite a compliment.

      That first picture is my favourite. In the original, the woman has her arm around my younger daughter, but I don’t want my kids’ faces on my blog so I cropped her out. She was only about 6 or 7 at the time, and in the photo she’s trying hard not to show how terrified she is.
