July 26 - U.S. Vice President Joe Biden visits a park and a hawker center as he begins his Singapore visit. Rough Cut (no reporter narration).
U.S. Vice President Joe Biden kicked off a trip to Singapore on Friday, attending a ceremony where an orchid was officially named in honour of him and his wife, Jill. The couple stuck a tag with the orchid hybrid's new name, the Dendrobium Joe and Jill Biden into the flower pot at the Singapore Botanic Gardens. Biden then visited a food court where he wandered among the stalls and bought a lime juice. Later on Friday, in addition to Singapore officials, Biden is set to meet Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe who is also on an official visit to Singapore.
