Last month, on September 13th to 17th, I attended the 36th International Conference on Very Large Databases (VLDB 2010) in Singapore, to present a paper at the Ph.D. workshop.

Not only was this the first time I've been to such a large international conference (which was very interesting because it allowed me to talk to a lot of experts in my field and see what other people are doing), it was also the first time I ever visited Singapore.

Fortunately, I was able to get some time for sightseeing, and these pictures are the result. :)

Smokey looks like a serval, but he's a bit small. Maybe he's a juvenile?
And the monkey is a cottontop tamarin,the pig looks like a babirusa,t he snake I'm not sure about, the lizard is a green iguana. Whatever, they're all adorable. Including the proboscis monkeys. Don't hate on the proboscis monkeys!

Sure enjoyed the slide show! Didn't know that much about Singapore - had to look on Google maps to figure out exactly where it is. Quite a city. Thanks for the photos. Am old and retired - will never get a chance to go there.

Singapore looks hot and humid, yet interesting.
