Australian Expats love Singapore, and there was rain, wine & food in abundance when I was visiting friends in 2007. Anne Lacy worked at Parkview Square where the wine Angel would fetch our preferred tipple raising herself high on the end of a hook.
Up she goes
Quite an interesting method of collecting your wine choice.
Too much red wine is never enough

A rather imposing Singapore building.
Boat Quay Singapore
This is the place to go in Singapore for world famous chilli crab, make sure you haggle on the price.

Here is we eat the wonderful Chili crabs imported from Sri Lanka.
Say no more
Imported from Sri Lanka, they are often much bigger than we can get in Australia. Chilli crab in Singapore is the world’s best, one my way to Istanbul on February 24th 2015 I have arranged a 9 hour stop over in Singapore so I can visit The East Coast Seafood Centre for another wonderful dining experience.
There are lots of wealthy people in Singapore.
See what I mean?
This is one guys private selection.
Sentosa in the rain
Tropical storms are almost a daily occurrence this time of the year in Singapore.
When it rains it comes down in buckets
Huge drops of rain.
Resorts World Sentosa is an integrated resort off the southern coast of Singapore. Attractions include one of Singapore’s two casinos, a Universal Studios theme park, and a Marine Life Park, which includes the world’s largest oceanarium. The S$6.59 billion (US$4.93 billion) resort is the third most expensive building ever constructed. The resort will cover about 121 acres of land.

Morton’s Atrium Bar
Anne, Kate, Duncan and Steve Bates. In Singapore, the Morton’s Atrium Bar has long been one of the most popular bars in the city, thanks largely to the exceptional offerings of the “Mortinis Hours” of 5pm-7pm on week nights when the iconic Morton’s Martinis are attractively priced and served with complimentary filet mignon steak sandwiches.

Let’s move on to Changi Golf Course
Here is an Aussie Duncan Paul teeing off at Changi Golf course near Singapore airport.
Old friend Steve Bates at Changi Golf Club
Changi is a reminder of Singapore’s historical connection with WWII, as the course winds through an area filled with mementos of the British presence like the soldier’s barracks, officer’s quarters, gun-emplacements and air-raid bunkers.
