Missbossy Meanders... SINGAPORE

Easter Sunday 20-April-03

I'm tough: today I cycled 35km to Pasir Ris Park, kayaked
for 4 hours around Pulau Ubin and then cycled back home in time
for my 4pm massage appointment... And then passed out cold around 8:30pm

fully clothed having lost the requisite coordination to get my jeans off.

Pasir Ris Park 8am
These people were fishing.
The water is toxic so we can only hope they're eating it
themselves and that it doesn't end up in some hawker center...

A crowd eventually gathered. They were all
digging in the mud for edible filter feeders. Yuck.

This looks like a cat but she's a show pony...
the minute the camera cam out she
was on her back performing.

Suzanne - Pasir Ris Park 9:10 am
A picture of Suzanne from an angle
unflattering enough for her to have
momentary bad thoughts about me.

Jon & Electric Dude - Pasir Ris Park 9:15 am
Jon on the left preferred compliments to
help so we told him he had nice muscles.

This is the sea sports shop dude
explaining how it's safe to paddle
even thought there's lightening.

He said he'd been hit by lightening 3 times. No big deal.You might knock out for a bit or be stunned but you just shake it off. He was oblivious to the long term damage apparent to the rest of us.

My Boat - Pulau Ubin around noon

On the other side of Ubin (60-67% of the way around - the distance is the subject of ongoing debate) we stopped for lunch.

Jon right before Suzanne called an alternative picnic spot.

A bunch of Malay girls showed up... and some guys followed. Then there was a van... with music blaring something more like Indian than Malay music...
rocking the Kazbar as Jon put it. NOT relaxing!

The dogs that looked like hyena's weren't too pleasant either.
BUT OTHER THAN THAT IT'S A GREAT PLACE.

The presence of my foot ended her diatribe.
