Typical, the camera lens fogs up as you come out of air conditioned heaven into humid hell :)
wipe lens, take photo of lovely sculpture of kids jumping off the wall into the Singapore River
And the lens fogs up again
there's the office building
another wipe and another photo
and it fogs up again.
this is one of the cutest bridges I have seen, this is the Cavanagh Bridge
Another lovely sculpture of an Englishman and a group of Chinese merchants with a coolie loading on a bullock cart.
yeah, you have been warned
looking back at the Fullerton Hotel
another view of the sculpture
and the kids
I am now on the bridge
its truly such a cute little bridge
the Fullerton Hotel, which used to be the post office earlier
more information on Major General Cavenagh..
Ah! the man who defeated a superpower?
now there's a tall building..
And now this is Deng Xiaoping...
The Asian Civilisations Museum...I will come back to this in a subsequent blog post
Jawarhalal Nehru...of India
His silhouette against the skies.
George Quay...one of the great places to have sea food.
Another sculpture, and this talks about Chettiars from India
the tree is beautiful
I am sure this means something to somebody but Hard Standing?
This is the Raffles Landing site...mixed emotions seeing this..
these are the boats which take you around on a harbour tour...and despite visiting Singapore so many times, I have never actually been on one, lol
Rows...on the dock
Another lovely old bridge...Elgin Bridge. Why? oh why are new bridges so boring?
I am presuming this is the Singapore Emblem?
I call it the egg case building
The Coleman Bridge
I love this lovely building with multiple colours...looks like a child's playground
Ah rats, this museum I wasnt able to go to...next time perhaps.
and i reach Fort Canning
water in the fountain and in bottles.
a mast? :) sea scouts I think
and then these glorious flowers
Raffles built this house...really nice one
and here comes the mystery...where are the famous Singapore Guns, eh? no sign of them and nobody knows.
its just lovely to see these beautiful trees with these parasite ferns on them
can I do like tarzan? please? pretty please?
jeez, ok ok, I get it, you dont have to shoot me. There is a water reservoir behind the fence...given how paranoid Singaporeans are about their national security in the broadest sense, not surprising that they will shoot you if you faff around with their water.
the tomb of Keramat Iskandar Syah...very peaceful. the last king of Singapura...he was a Hindu before he converted...very vague if you ask me..
only in singapore can you find a robotic cow :)
the trees are just awesome here
the Fort Canning Command Centre, useless tits...specially during the World War 2
these were the most amazing flowers that I saw, beautiful but the aroma left something to be desired.
lovely lovely trees and flowers, eh?
a cute little church
another cherry sculpture in front of the National Museum, I will return to this anon
a lovely lovely building with traditional Chinese architecture..
I just love Singapore, I tell you...more coming up soon.
