The business tower skyline. On the right you can see what I referred to as the the “Cut-Off CN Tower”, which is their cenetaph war memorial to Singapore’s WWII experiences. Posted by Hello


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. Posted by Hello


This is the front of a Duckboat, an amphibious tour craft use to tour the habourfront. (As opposed to the docks, which are on the other side of downtown.)  Posted by Hello


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. Posted by Hello


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. Posted by Hello


Singapore is one of the world’s busiest ports, and a huge part of the harbourfront is dedicated to shipping. Those cranes are gigantic, and there must be over a hundred thousand cargo containers scattered about the island. Posted by Hello


The Habourfront center, and the road is a long way down…(This picture was taken once Connie calmed Rob down and convinced him they weren’t about to plunge to their deaths.) Posted by Hello


The Peeeeeeaaace Booooaaattt, promising fun and adventure for everyone. In this case doing it by being a floating casino that travels between Singapore and some distant port and bringing people together through the common cause of gambling. Posted by Hello


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. Posted by Hello
