Singapore Diaries: A visit to the Macritchie Reservoir

Welcome to the Macritchie Reservoir

Welcome to the Macritchie Reservoir

I have always heard people crib about the fact that Singapore doesn’t have anything natural to offer when it comes to tourism. Ironically, as of 2005, Singapore has about 2000 hectares of park area which is equal to about 70 km. But then, Singapore isn’t generally promoted as a destination for eco-tourism simply because the authorities believe that they can offer much more to the tourist in other areas like shopping, man-made attractions and more.

It is blessed with numerous historical sites, religious places and architectural wonders that will leave you spellbound by its simplicity.

However, one of the most intriguing things about Mumbai that not many cities in India can boast about, is the sheer number of neighbouring hill stations and exotic getaways that it has.

“I love this city in particular due to its various walking trails and nature reserves.”

Both Ryan and Sonya had both been deputed to the city by their organization at almost the same time. They loved their daily walks amidst the tranquillity provided by these reserves far away from the pollution and the maddening crowd.

Dubai Diaries – A trip to the Miracle Garden

Spread over 72000 sq m and with over 45 million flowers, Miracle Garden is the world’s largest natural flower garden. In a country where temperatures can easily cross 50 degrees in the summer, this is quite a spectacular achievement which points to the vision of the authorities to create varied tourist experiences for the avid traveler.

The garden is open for visitors from October to April and closed thereafter as the peak summer starts. There are flowers covering trains, the Eiffel tower, a clock, peacocks, cars, village houses, Burj Khalifa and more. For those who are interested, a butterfly garden has also opened its doors next to the Miracle Garden.

The way the flowers have been arranged shows the amount of effort which would have gone in ensuring that tourist have a lovely time. It’s an amazing place to take in the fresh air and relax.

Droplets of rain

PHOTO PROMPT – © Santoshwriter

“The smell of the earth courtesy the season’s first rain is something I have always cherished. The nature around seems so fresh and pure.

Taking advantage of their extended weekend, Ramesh and Ila had taken off for a short vacation to the nearby hill-station. They were greeted with light rain and greenery all around as far as the eyes could see.

Sitting in the veranda with piping hot coffee in one hand and delicious snacks in the other, they were lost in each other as one interesting conversation gave way to another and finally it was the time to leave.

100 word story – The natural dustbin…

Polluted riverPHOTO PROMPT – Copyright – Sandra Crook

“Dad, they have turned this river into a dustbin. From logs of wood to bottles of every shape and size, there is so much waste dumped here.”

“Ronnie, now you know why the environment gets back at us, don’t you?”

As the father and son walked around the banks of the river, Ronnie was shocked to see the destruction humans had brought upon this natural water body.

While his dad had been part of various cleaning campaigns as part of the local NGO, Ronnie had accompanied him for the first time and couldn’t believe his eyes on what he saw.
