    Catch the Sunrise here!

    If you can wake up early enought, you may want to come here to catch the beautiful sunrise. I took this photo at around 7am. It will be good to standby at around 6.40am at the beach. I think the morning sun is beautiful. Sacrificing a few hours of sleep is worth it after all.

    Here's one of the places where you can watch sunrise in Singapore, been hunting for Sunrise and Sunset in this tiny red dot~
    The sky will start to get bright at around 6.45am and that pic was taken around 7.15am - 7.30am when the sun's already up.

    Check Out Approaching Planes

    Like clockwork, the areoplanes are lined up in the air to make their final approach towards Changi International Airport. You can even play a game of identifying which country is the passenger airliner from.

    Looking Towards Pulau Ubin

    Other than taking a nice stroll along the beach, one can also make use of the broadwalk. Standing on the broadwalk, you can experience the panoramic view of people along the beach, and also large cargo ships going by.

    Birdwatching in Singapore

    by bpacker Updated Oct 24, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Birdwatching is a hobby among geeky Singaporeans. Yes, I'm a geek, why else would I spend so much time doing my webapage? Still, birdwatching is a rewarding hobby and there are pockets of areas where you can see indigenous and migratory birds. Changi coast area ( the unmarked trails near the ferry terminal) is just one of them. Another good point is the boardwalk off Changi Village. Just remember to bring along a powerful bino and wear good shoes to avoid stepping on snakes. Here's a list of birds that I have seen in the Changi Area:

    1)Black Kites (Unmarked Trails)
    2)Brahminy Kites (Coastal Area)
    3)White Bellied Sea Eagle (Coastal Area)
    4)Tanimbar Corella ( Changi Village Carpark)
    5)Red Breasted Parakeet ( Changi Village Carpark)
    6)Yellow Crested Cockatoo ( Changi Village Carpark)
    7)Coppersmith Barbet ( Changi Village Carpark)
    8)Grey Heron (Coastal Area)
    9)Little Egret (Coastal Area)
    10)White Collared Kingfisher (Coastal Area)
    11)Collared Kingfisher (Coastal Area)
    12)Pied Fantail (Changi Creek)
    13)Peaceful Dove
    14)Spotted Dove
    15)Common Mynah
    16)Javan Mynah
    17)Tern
    18)Large Billed Crow
    19)house Crow
    20)Oriental Pied Hornbill ( Changi Village Carpark)
    21)Brown Capped Woodpecker (Changi Park)

    7)Little Egret ( one flock, flying towards Ubin)
    8)Pacific Swallows

    File pix - Hornbills spotted in Changi Village

    (Anthracoceros albirostris) (Malaysian Pied Hornbill)

    Today is a first for me. I actually spotted a pair of Oriental Pied Hornbills just opposite Changi Village Hotel while walking the carpark! At first when I heard the Incessant cackle, I thought it was a red-breasted parakeet. But my jaw dropped when I saw the black and white feathers and a flash of the huge yellow beak! It dropped further when I saw 2 birds flying off the tree. It sqwaked for a while before flying in the direction of pulau ubin..

    Not an ordinary raven

    by bpacker Updated Apr 23, 2006

    Brown-necked Raven ?
    Corvus ruficollis ?

    The ravens found off the coast of Changi have brown collars. At first, I thought that the dust from all the reclaimation got onto their glossy black feathers but when I saw more than 10 with the same colour, they had to be of a different species..

    Beach Combing in Changi

    by bpacker Written Apr 4, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Do you know that the natural shore lines of Singapore have a diverse ecosystem? Of course, when I mention natural, I'm not talking about East Coast Park or Sentosa's Palawan. The only life you'll see there are half naked things in bikinis and too tight trunks. Back to where I was saying, try going to SIngapore's natural beach if you can. You'll see a myraid of colourful corals, crabs, fish and if you're lucky , maybe even an octopus. My favourite beach is Changi Beach. Lots of things to see there. Of course, the availability of good Nasi Lemak helps a bit too.

    How?
    Click here here to check for tide times. Go there one hour before the lowest tide.

    Red-breasted Parakeet

    Red Breasted Parakeet Looking for Nasi Lemak

    I think you'd be as surprised as I am when I tell you that you can spot this exotic species of birds in Changi Village! Yes, the same place where you tuck into nasi lemak and oogle at sexy transvestites. I'm not joking, i spotted this colourful fella or the Red-breasted Parakeet (Psittacula alexandri) and nearly choked on my Teh Tarik (tea latte). But when my senses recovered, I zoomed in on the bird and snapped away. Later I found out that this bird is not a Singaporean but a Javanese. It was introduced to Singapore through the bird trade and it looks like it has settled happily here...in the wild. Ironically, this Singaporean birdie expat is now a rare species in indonesia.

    Swimming & playing in the sand

    Changi Beach, Singapore

    What better way to spend a weekend than to get to Changi Beach and spend time swimming, sun tanning, playing in the sand etc. However, the beach can get crowded during the weekends especially school holiday seasons in June and December.

    At Changi beach, you can always watch the planes flying across the sky at frequent interval as they are making their way for landing at Changi Airport. Guess the airline?

    Plane taking off at Changi Airport, Singapore

    Because the Changi Beach is so near to the airport, you can have a close up view of planes taking off and landing.
