Queen Elizabeth II arrived in the former British colony of Singapore for a two-day state visit.

During her trip, the queen will meet President S.R. Nathan at the Istana palace -- Government House in colonial days -- and have lunch with Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.
She will stop at a war memorial, check out the national library and tour a public housing estate before winding up her visit on Saturday by awarding the winner's cup at the QEII horse race at the Singapore Turf Club.

Britain's Queen Elizabeth welcomed in Singapore library
.............At a library exhibition of photos by young people, she stopped to chat with student Alvina Tan, 18, who had taken one of the pictures on display.

The Queen Re-lives fond memories in Singapore
.................There Queen Elizabeth was greeted by Thomas Pung, who three decades ago had shown her around the one-bedroomed flat he shared with his mother in the housing estate. The excited 66-year-old pensioner called the meeting "the type of opportunity you cannot get", adding: "Even with money, you cannot buy this experience.".................
