1. The Henderson Waves Bridge, true to its name, has the undulating
shape of a wave, curving and twisting along its entire 274-metre length.
Its form is anchored by steel arches and filled in with curved ribs
slats of Balau wood, a dense hardwood used in heavy construction and
which is found only in Southeast Asia. Aside from being able to observe
a rich variety of tropical flora and fauna, a walk on the Ridges also
affords you some stunning views of the island.
2. There are various types of laksa in Singapore from the
tamarind-tang of Penang Laksa to the curry-like Sarawak Laksa. But
none is more famous than the home-grown Katong Laksa. Katong
Laksa is inspired by the Straits Chinese who live in the Katong area.
It has a spicy soup stock the color of a flaming sunset, flavored with
coconut milk and dried shrimp, and topped with ingredients like
cockles, prawns and fishcake. Its defining characteristic is the noodles:
thick vermicelli cut into shorter pieces that can be easily slurped up
with a spoon. At some stalls, you only get a spoon to eat the laksa
no chopsticks needed.
3. In 1959, the growth of nationalism led to self-government,
and the countrys first general election. The Peoples Action Party
won a majority of 43 seats and Lee Kuan Yew became the first prime

minister of Singapore. In 1963, Malaysia was formed, comprising of


the Federation of Malaya, Singapore, Sarawak and North Borneo. The
move was meant to foster closer ties. However, Singapores merger
proved unsuccessful, and less than two years later on 9 August 1965,
it left Malaysia to become an independent and sovereign democratic
nation. Today, many slices of Singapores multi-cultural, colonial and
wartime past are preserved in and around the city.
4. If youre feeling a bit claustrophobic in the city this weekend,
escape to Pulau Ubin for adventure and a great upper body workout.
Daily kayaking tours through the mangroves on Pulau Ubin offer a
chance to explore a winding water world full of sea life and greenery.
There is something really lovely about the quiet stillness there, the
absence of hustle and bustle, and although Im not an experienced
paddlerthe freedom and mobility of steering your own boat is
thrilling!
5. Chinese and Hindu temples, mosques, as well as churches, are
often located near each other. One such example can be found along
Pagoda Street in Chinatown, where Sri Mariamman Temple, the oldest
Hindu place of worship here, stands next to Jamae Mosque, which
caters to the Tamil Muslims in Singapore. Expect cultural celebrations
throughout the year too. In January, look forward to Thaipusam, a Hindu
festival dedicated to Lord Subrahmanya (or Murugan). Also happening
around the same time is Chinese New Year, which is celebrated with
much gusto, particularly in Chinatown.
6. During the GSS, retailers here offer steep discounts, sometimes
up to 70 per cent off their original prices. Youll find great deals on just
about everything, from fashion to jewelry, electronics to toys, even spa
treatments, hotel stays, F&B and visits to local attractions for a total
lifestyle experience. Over the years, the scale of the GSS has grown
tremendously. The entire island is transformed into a shopping paradise,
as even shops in the suburban areas join in.
7. Today, Orchard Road is flanked by iconic shopping malls,
restaurants and hotels, choc-a-bloc with retail, dining and entertainment
choice for every taste and budget. Designer threads, fast fashion,
upscale restaurants, ethnic wares, art galleries and relaxed hangouts
you name it, Orchard Road has it. Heres a tip: while the almond and
jambu trees are no more, huge angsana trees lining the large pedestrian

Lquipe Girls: The Trusty Steed Swap
Theyre soon welcomed by farm owner Beth Coelho. A mother of
four girls (Cynthia, Roberta, Carol and Andrea), Beth has hidden each
of her daughters umbilical cords under a tree. Its a traditional ritual
in this region, and makes children want to continue 1_________, she
says. In her case, it worked. Imagine if they had turned into shopaholics
that just hang out at the mall? she jokes. As it turns out, that couldnt
be further from reality. Cynthia, the eldest, works as a psychologist in
the states capital, and her three sisters Andrea, Carol and Roberta
have continued the family legacy, 2_________. This involves running
the livestock and rice production, plus taking care of the hospitality,
3_________. But the bikers dont want to be treated as guests; they
wanted to experience real life, so theyre more than happy to join this
familys sisterhood and share their daily activities.
They arrive, leave their bags, have a quick lunch and go straight to
the fields with Andrea and Carol for a typical day in Pantanal. In the
afternoon, Beths daughters go cattle-herding a typical farming duty
in this region, as it is often necessary to move cows from a flood-risk
pasture to one 4_________. Managing over 300 cows is now the girls
job! So, along with the cowherds, they ride on horseback across the
flooded fields (and alligator territory) to move the animals to safety.
Cindy leads the group, 5_________, and, despite Ceciles lack of
experience, she manages to keep up with her friends. On the riverside,
a cowboy plays his horn to lead the animals on the right path, says
Ccile. We lead the way through the water, and the herd follows behind

us. We walk through mud and moss. There is water up to our thighs.
The horses swim. We have to keep stimulating them, 6_________.
We reach the other bank, and the animals rush out of the water, strong
and powerful. Im not sure what role we had in this, but I felt really
transcended. I had forgotten that I am a woman from Paris, that I am
32 years old, even what language I speak... I lost myself in this task,
transported by the energy of the animals.

No Story (by O. Henry, abridged)
To avoid having this book hurled into corner of the room by the
suspicious reader, I will assert in time that this is not a newspaper story.
I was doing space-work on the Beacon, hoping to be put on a salary, but
my income was not regular.
One day Tripp came in. It was a man whose hands were always
stained and cut up with acids, and I thought he worked at the mechanical
department. He was about twenty-five and looked forty. He was pale
and unhealthy and miserable and fawning, and an assiduous borrower of
sums ranging from twenty-five cents to a dollar. This day I had coaxed
from the cashier five shining silver dollars as a grumbling advance on a
story that the Sunday editor had reluctantly accepted.

1. Located halfway between Merida and Cancun, colonial
Valladolid is the third largest city in Yucatan which was built on top
of the ancient Maya ceremonial center. It has received the nickname
Sultan of the East because of its rich colonial splendor. The charm
of this Magic Town lies mainly in its beautiful colonial buildings, in
its colorful mansions and in its exquisite handicrafts, of a remarkable
pre-Hispanic and colonial tradition. Due to highway 109, which runs
from Valladolid to Tolum, you will have the opportunity to see the
best of the Maya world. Visit the natural and archaeological wonders
of Tulum and take a detour to Playa del Carmen and the ferry to
Cozumel. This route will furnish you with experiences you will
remember all your life: tours in natural settings, coexistence with an
ancient culture but whose heart still beats strongly, and the fresh and
sweet water of the sinkholes or the warm and turquoise color of the
Mexican Caribbean.
2. The Mesoamerican Reef is a 13 mile long reef system stretching
from the Eastern coast of the Yucatan Peninsula to the islands in the
bay of Honduras, surpassed in size only by the great reef in Australia.
During your visit to the Route of the Maya Charm, you must be sure
not to miss the five best coral reefs in Cozumel. Here, you will find a
large number of marine wildlife and multicolored beauties in one of the
worlds most translucent and warmest oceans. On Cozumels boardwalk
you will find specialized companies that will take you to these places

with all the necessary safety requirements. The Paraiso reef is a quiet
place where everything seems perfect; the visibility is excellent and
the schools of fish are second to none. Moreover, its location just off
the cruise ship quay, in the center of the tourist area, makes it the most
accessible place on the island.
3. On his first visit to Cozumel, world-renowned researcher and
self-taught oceanographer Captain Jacques Cousteau proclaimed it one
of the most spectacular diving areas in the world. Since then, divers
flock from every corner of the globe to experience this underwater
marvel. These fabled shores provide shelter for part of the largest reef
system in the Western Hemisphere, delivering the opportunity to take
the plunge at more than 40 different dive sites. You dont have to be a
certified diver to experience this underwater rainbow of tropical fish
and corals with a remarkable 200 feet of visibility. Cozumel has plenty
of equipment rental shops and tour operators offering a variety of
snorkeling trips for all levels, plus SNUBA equipment.
4. History unfolds through Cozumels museums and cultural
centers where an infusion of contemporary Mayan culture influences
the growing art scene. The Cozumel Island Museum reveals stories
of the past and provides a complete overview of the islands
anthropology, along with an in-depth examination of the native ecosystem. The former luxury hotel offers an ocean view restaurant and
various exhibitions. Just down the road the Culture Center, a popular
hangout for natives and expats, offers events, demonstrations, theater,
language classes, music and dance. Looking for some artsy souvenirs?
Youll find plenty of shops fanning out from San Miguels main plaza,
including an arts and crafts market with traditional Mayan art and
textiles. Discover Mexico, a theme park just outside of San Miguel,
unveils the pre-Hispanic past with over 60 replica artifacts from
Mayan and Toltec civilizations. Nearby, Faro Celerain Ecological
Reserve, also called Punta Sur, is a nautical museum housed in an old
lighthouse that you can climb for stunning views and a glimpse into
maritime existence.
5. More than one million international retirees have chosen
Mexican picturesque destinations for extended stays or permanent
residence. Not only because of the beauty of Mexican landscapes,
lakes, beaches and colonial cities, but also because of the infrastructure
