Farewell Singapore, Hello Taiwan

Posted by meronpan on December 8, 2009

As mentioned in my previous post I’m currently out on business… though I was able to enjoy half a weekend in singapore as pictured above ^^

Alas because of business (yes, real business, not cocktail drinking :P) I didn’t get to go out and explore as much as I woulda liked but I did get to try chili crab (yum ^^).  The weather was quite a shock compared to the west coast of the US.  So humid, so hot, I was melting the entire time.  I’ve been in similar weather before… but I’m just never prepared for it ^^;;

Also got my camera quite fogged up when I finally was able to take it out o.O  Thankfully once it got up to the ambient temperature I wasn’t taking cloudy pictures.

Will have to write up more and post more pics when I get back, though it looks like fate and subaru will be waiting too!  Argh!  Love traveling, but I also love figures :P  Must focus and enjoy my trip ^^;

Hope to have some free time friday night in Taipei before I leave, and hopefully that means some pics of Taiwan (haven’t gotten any yet ;_;).  Grateful I was able to snap off ~150-ish shots before leavin singapore.

blegh, enough rambling ^^;  time to sleep!

    good to hear you are in a job that lets you travel. Take as many pics you can from Taiwan too! (or at least the Taipei 101) Lol.

    Any chance ur coming down to Sydney for a business trip next year? ;)
    Indeed SG is humid but since it’s humid over here during the summer, I’m pretty use it.
    The thing I prefer was sweating than sticking. Guess I like to taste my sweat instead. :P

    Enjoy ur business trip. It’s okay to have a cocktail. It’s not illegal. ;)

    Looking forward to your pics of Taiwan if you get a chance. Taiwan is one of those countries that I’ve never heard of one of our ships stopping at so I’m a bit curious what it’s like.

      ugh, all i managed was like 5 shots while getting to our hotel. stupid food poisoning or something had me out of commission for most of taiwan and shaky for the rest ;_;

  6. No wonder about hot weather. Taiwan, Indonesia, Malaysia and Brunei D. are same (yes I’m from one of them). But my cousin in Taiwan said it cooler there.
