Goodbye Singapore

  • Tonight was my final evening here in Singapore, and what better way to bid farewell to the city than to enjoy it at its best, glittering under a night sky.

    Today’s picture shows the nightly laser light show at the iconic three tower structure of the Marina Bay Sands hotel. Remember the picture of the rooftop hotel swimming pool I ‘crashed‘ a while back? Well, this is that hotel.

    I’m going to be sad to leave Singapore. It’s been fun spending time with my friends here and getting to know the city and its curious ways. In some respects I leave this place feeling like I didn’t just visit it, but that I became familiar with it, stepping beyond the realms of being just another dazzled tourist star stuck by the lights and tall buildings.

    I can’t say I fell in love with Singapore, I’d perhaps liken the experience to dating a stripper. At first you’re still struck by the glamor and excitement of it all, but you soon realise it can’t always be cleavage, short skirts, and impossibly high heels. I’ve seen Singapore in the morning many times now, and I’m still fond of her, even without the makeup and sparkles.

    I don’t suppose this is the last time I’ll see this shimmering city state, but I don’t know when the next time will be. So tomorrow, as exciting as it is to continue this journey, I’ll be saying that word that never seems to get any easier, no matter how many times I say it.

    Goodbye Singapore.

      • Thanks Mitch. Was great hanging out with you and Navin. I hope to see you guys again in the not too distant future. Stay in touch.

    2. Where are you off to now Simon?
      I am quite confident there will be intriguing photographs and stories coming no matter what place you end up at, right?

      • I’m looking at heading north to Thailand. It all depends on the visa situation and where I can find to stay. I need to look after my budget for a little while. Watch this space!

    3. Man, that bit is always hard, and it’s hard reading it and hearing your voice in my head saying it.

      See you out in the world sometime.
