Singapore







Singapore is a tropical, clean, literally crime free version of New York City. It has a blend of different culture, cuisine, arts and architecture here. Singapore has around 4 million people who mostly live in high rises on this small island country.

We left Hyderabad at midnight and arrived in Singapore 4 hours later but due to the time difference of 2 1/2 hours, it was 6:30 am when we landed. First stop, the hotel so we could take a couple hours more to sleep.

In the afternoon, we went on a city tour. Singapore is a country of contrasts. You have shiney new skyscrapers and in between, there are temples that are several hundred years old.























Here is the view from Satyam's office located on the 40th floor.







Singapore produces more than 35% of the world's supply of orchids. We stopped off at the orchid botanical gardens to catch a glimse of the varieties of orchids.



We completed our day with dinner at the American Club hosted by U21Global. On Tuesday, we met with Press to release information about our new partnership.

Jarong Bird Park
This place is truly amazing. You walk into aviaries that are 10 stories high and you are among hundreds of birds who fly freely among the natural landscape.

The park has a waterfall, man-made, that is 30 meters high.

At Sentosa Island, we visited Underwater World. Sentosa is connected to Singapore by a causeway and a cable car.

And spent a few minutes taking in the view from the beach.
