Feel Good Friday

Everyone around the world has a staple food they were raised on.  Some rice-and-shine to a bowl of white rice.  Others have baking bread in the baguette.  And others roll out corn tortillas that taste a-maize-ing!

"Singapore is a country where old and new exist side-by-side.

From walking downtown through the streets lined with gleaming skyscrapers, to stumbling upon temples that are over a hundred years old, and to discovering a carefully preserved city block of traditional shop-fronts that date back to colonial days.
