Pictures of Singapore

You may have noticed over the past week or so that this travel blog has gotten a bit slow.  It’s not that I haven’t been travelling.  After returning to Southeast Asia from Jordan, I haven’t exactly slowed down my pace of travel or anything.  After a couple days in Singapore, we flew up to Vietnam and have already spent a couple weeks exploring this fascinating country.  But there hasn’t been much content flowing has there?  Well, not as much as usual.

The reason  is simple, I’m writing a book.  And by “writing a book” I basically mean that I’ve written about 70,000 words and am throwing the pages in the air screaming things like, “develop the characters you selfish bastard!” and “the sentence syntax is poor, Brendan.  Piss poor!”.  But it also means I haven’t had nearly as much time to explore, or post articles.

Thus, if it’s OK with you all, I’m going to be spending a little less time constructing elegantly written words, and maybe keep things simple with photo articles like this one from my short time in Singapore.  It should keep things light on my end until I finish flinging poo at the pages of my potential novel and get it published.

Of course, if you’re like me, you’re probably too lazy to read the words anyways and just come here for the pictures.

Which I guess means you aren’t reading this anyway, so I should just stop and get to the pictures, shouldn’t I.

Ok, pictures of Singapore.  Enjoy.

  1. Grea photos Brendan! I love Singapore, it’s one of my favourite places. Been there twice now and need to get back there soon to see Gardens by the Bay as it was only just being built last time I was there. I love how much the city changes from year to year.

    • Yeah, I really would like to go back. I could live there if it wasn’t so expensive!

  2. That komodo dragon is a beast! He looks like he’s hungry, I hope you didn’t stick around too long, he looks as though he’s got his eye on your ankles!
