By the time we arrived the tide was out and the sun was setting so we had a few drinks and bite to eat in the bar and watched the incredible sun set which reflected the sky on the still water to almost look as though there ...
... it was a small white room, one side totally open to the street, with a few plastic chairs and tables in it.
When we got there there was only 2 patrons- a local man in his late 40s and a crazy lady who was wearing strips of fabric tied in bows all down her arms and legs, and would stare me in the eyes and angrily talk gibberish to me.
Videoke was a lot of fun! You put ...

Hello from SE Asia! We spent a wonderful weekend in Singapore with a great host (Thanks again Arran :) which included celebrating the Chinese new year fireworks in China town, heading up to the top of Marina Bay Sands where they have a night club with an amazing view on the 57th floor, a Singapore sling at Raffles and the big red bus tour!
Our next stop was the Philippines. Thankfully we changed our midnight flight (which would have ...
