My trip to Singapore was enjoyable, I managed to catchup with old friends and had lots of delicious food. The average temperature was 23C so it was a bit of a shock for my body coming back to the cold and wet in the UK, think it was 3C when I got back!

In the mornings in Singapore it was enjoyable to see people exercising and doing Tai Chi in the parks keeping fit and healthy. Reminding me how important it is to maintain and keep the body fit, balance and in harmony.
