Birthday Presents

My first Singapore birthday was a happy one, with the added bonus of some especially thoughtful gifts...

From Joey: high tea at the gorgeous and historic Raffles Hotel. A fun chance to play “colonial,” sans the social and political damage wrought by the Empire...

From Mom and Dad: a birder’s guide to Southeast Asia. An early present - if only I hadn’t put it in the sea shipment by accident! Starting in March, I’ll be able to name all the unusual birds we see here.

From God: the first good, hard rainstorm over our home since we arrived in Singapore. Satisfying beyond words.
