Calling all nature enthusiasts! 

Gardens by the Bay unveiled its newest sanctuary – Kingfisher Wetlands – earlier this month, and it promises to be a great bird-watching space for nature photographers. 

On top of that, it connects two existing water bodies, the Lotus Pond and Kingfisher Lake, which helps improve water circulation and aeration to create new aquatic microhabitats for wildlife. The sanctuary is home to a diversity of wildlife such as smooth-coated otters, lesser whistling ducks, and Malayan monitor lizards. 

5. Listen to Adele’s new album

Another highly-anticipated album that is out this month is Adele’s fourth studio album 30, which was released on Nov 19. 

The album features 12 songs, including hit single Easy On Me, that were inspired by Adele’s high-profile divorce from Simon Konecki. The album also focuses on the themes of self-reflection and self-redemption, and will be about how Adele hopes to be kinder to herself and her hopes for the future after a difficult few years. 

Listen to the album here.
