Hello Singapore

With Vietnam behind us the Drydock in Singapore was imminent. Arriving in on Saturday afternoon was a ill stroke for the recovering Alcoholics onboard. Everyone assembled along side and we made for where else? Boat Quay. In even better timing South Africa was to take on the All blacks that night and we happened to be working with both nationalities. Walking into Molly Malone’s I swear I could feel my head throb like it was the subliminal mutterings of tomorrow's hangover.
The Springbok pulled off a amazing 1 point victory and there were smiles all round from the underdogs.

From the moment I got into seismic I had heard the legend of the Orchid Towers. No visit to Singapore (or port call for that matter) is complete without a stop here. Needless to say after many beers there was quite a few confused punters getting about. The Lady Boys are without a doubt a real eye opener. I know I open myself up for trouble with this shot but I maintain my innocence.

It's time for me to catch my plane home and i never want to see another beer again!
