October 28, 2006: Sungei Buloh

For me the downside of living in Singapore is wall to wall people. But the upside is that there are many quiet places in and around Singapore which provides the requisite therapy. One of those places is Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserves. Filled with amazing wildlife - it is the perfect escape for me, camera and tripod.

Sungei Buloh - a pleasant escape
