LOVE the lighting. That's Brendan for you. Talented guy.

This is behind the scenes of a cover shoot with Inspire Travel & Leisure magazine. You cannot find this mag on regular newsstands

I love shooting in Singapore. Yes, it's small but the locations are endless! Here we are at Rasa Sentosa Shangri-La where you never know who might be there. [notice the monkeys]

The rooms at Rasa Sentosa are beautiful, and I believe all with a waterfront view... Always check out hotel websites for specials [Rasa's here]and with the growing popularity of Staycations, as a local resident you may find great deals for a vaca minutes from your house!  

The restaurant, Barnacles has a weekend great brunch reputation AND if you stay for brunch you are invited to hang by the pool! [hint: waterslides for small children] We haven't brunched here yet but we have brunched at Rasa's sister hotel the Shangri-La on Orchard - um... best brunch to date.

Brunch is definitely a sport here in Singapore.

"Barnacles Restaurant offers an inviting waterfront dining spot with panoramic view of the South China Sea. Western and Chinese kitchens present a wide selection of dishes, including fresh seafood and grills.

Dine al fresco for a view of the sun setting on the horizon and enjoy the sea breeze and lush greenery. A stroller band entertains daily at selected times of the evening.

The Sunday Garden Party by the Sea is ideal for families. It offers a dedicated buffet section and activities for children with a choice of outdoor-waterfront or indoor dining in cosy surroundings."
