Singapore: Marina Bay Sands (Day 5)

posted by Martin Rubli at 15:22

I could make a New Year's resolution to upload my photos in a more timely fashion, but let's face it: just like most resolutions that one would be doomed to fail right from the start.

Instead, in a long tradition of delivering my holiday photos about a year late, I'm posting the photos from our last night in Singapore that we spent walking around the harbor and visiting the Marina Bay Sands hotel.

There's really only so much you can say about night skyline photos, so the pictures will, once again, have to speak for themselves.

Babies in Taiwan

posted by Martin Rubli at 14:55

Sometimes you have to be thankful for Taiwan's low birth rate. Some little kids here have to endure all kinds of abuse as I would like to illustrate with two photos recently taken.

This situation was just plain weird: The woman crossed the street using the crosswalk and then got right in line with the scooters waiting for the green light. She acted as if testing the effects of carbon monoxide on toddlers was the natural thing to do.

And the award for the creepiest shop sign goes to ... this tempura stand. Whoever thought it was a good idea to let their baby kid ride a fish? I can already see the owner's kid getting wedgies in school.
