The habourfront park near the Art Gallery is filled with these giant black statues of naked fat people in a vareity of poses (including having sex). I’m told there is also a gallery of the artist’s paintings of fat people someplace in this area as well, but managed to miss them. Not on my list of regrets.
The only picture from the Night Safari that Connie and I went to the first night in Singapore. It’s basically a zoo filled with nocternal animals which are lured into certain viewing areas by regular feedings so the tourists can see them. Some of the animals are really amazing, I saw a deer the size of a guinea pig, and a guinea pig (Capybara) the size of a small deer! This is the only picture because the animals are scared by flash photography, so none is allowed inside the park.
Monday we went to Sentosa Island, a popular tourist spot and the former military base because it controls the only entry point to the harbour from sea. Unfortunately the guns were facing seaward when the Japanese attacked from shore, which didn’t help Singapore much, and it fell into Japanese hands for about 3.5 years of WWII.
Riding our way to the relay post. When we reached the post the car suddenly stopped and a voice came on telling us to be calm and that “service would resume soon”. Not something you want to hear while hanging several hundred meters in the air. Service did resume after about 3 or 4 minutes, I suspect some tourist hit a panick button somewhere on the system because their kid got their foot stuck in the door.
