Big Girls Don’t Cry

We saw The Jersey Boys at the Marina Bay Sands Theatre tonight.
Musical about Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons.
It was so good I didn’t want it to end.

When we came out, the songs were stuck in out heads as we walked along the Marina.

Night Safari

Happiness is… close encounters with wild animals.

Cute little cloud leopards.
Noisy little otters.
Tiger bathing in a pool.

We had such a great time at the Night Safari in Singapore.
We were super lucky because we got to see most of the animals there, particularly the ones we liked a lot.
