For those of you who noticed I was away for a few days last month, (yes, all two of you) i actually took a break in [tag]Singapore[/tag] to take in the sights and sounds of the island city.
I had a tight schedule on the short trip, didn’t have an opportunity to meet up with some of my relatives and long-lost friends, and some bloggers too (apologies to Ghost! Next trip, i promise…)
Anyways, I went to lots of places, without saying where, i think most of you can tell from the photos. Here’s the thing about me and photos. Besides the pics of your family and friends standing together with a face ‘Cheese‘ grin and flashing the ‘Peace‘ sign, i take a lot of pics of the scenery and oddities – signs, cars, shops, passers-by, etc.
You won’t see many humans in the following collection of photos – you can get lots of those in other blogs. Its all about the signs…
Below: This is taken as i just arrived near the city. Definitely one road sign you WON’T see in Malaysia…
Below: From my hotel room window. It was like 2 o’clock in the afternoon, so yes, you need to turn on your lights in case of a total eclipse of the sun…
(ok, yes I know, driving on the highway with your headlights at all times is good practice.)
Below: And the all-powerful ERP gantry that’s the bane of Singaporean drivers.
Below: This is not intentionally funny, but I have to post it. I bet these guys get a ribbing from the Emperor [tag]Penguin[/tag] brothers… “Hey, we’ve got a movie now, and what do YOU guys have, Jackass?!”
Below: Now you’ll probably find this as a name of a Mamak somewhere in Pandan Indah or Puchong Jaya. Sort of like a local version of [tag]Rum Jungle[/tag].
Below: Now this, very disappointing, for those contemplating suicide, or a swim with the alligators. Now they have to think of another way.
Next: More Signs… from Sing-ah-pore.
