Did the touristy thing today and visited some temples, Hindu and Buddhist.Took this at the main alter of the buddhist temple. I thought it looked pretty grand. There might not be more tomorrow as I'll be on the red eye back.

Look closely enough and you might be able to see the snake (yes snake) whiskey on the top shelf... Good times. More tomorrow.

269 - 25/9/14

Don't do much Happy Snaps on my 365, but this was just too good to not share.

One of the great things about coming to Singapore for a holiday is the chance to reconnect with family and friends. Today I spent a good part of the afternoon with my Dad and his old friend at his cafe - Wheeler's Yard. If you ever get the chance to, you have to see this place... it's a bicycle shop, a cafe and a really cool space all rolled in one. With retro furniture and antique curios sprinkled throughout this massive warehouse space.

I've posted a few more pictures of the front and back in the blog, and I'll probably do a Flickr album of the place once I get back. More tomorrow.

The great thing about staying in Chinatown, besides the food, is the sights. Lots of places of worship and places of some cultural significance. Here's one I shot at a temple today. Free to the public and quite an impressive structure. More tomorrow.

Out tonight at another bar in Singapore, and you know what I really miss? Being able to smoke while having a drink. It was nice to not to be treated like lesser beings, having to be hurdled away to a far corner room where it is packed with smokers just wanting to enjoy their cigarette. Glad that even in this quite smoking intolerant city, some sense of normalcy still remains. More tomorrow.

On the day of the launch of the new iPhone 6, I thought of this shot and all the things that technology has since done away with. Like the library and books, the telephone and switchboard... sadly some things never change... like good looking women turning their back on me. More tomorrow.

A bit itchy fingered lately as I've just come to realise I haven't shot anything in 3 days... not one click, one lens motor turn, nada, zilch. I blame being sick, but I know I could have still shot something none the less, even if I don't post it or find something interesting to post.

Anyway, here's something from a while back. I know I'm definitely shooting tomorrow. More tomorrow.
