I went down to Singapore again for some legal work last weekend. I may gripe and bitch, I may moan and sigh, but truth be told, I like working. It gives me a sense of purpose, an urgency that is sometimes missing in my life. Sometimes it is a telephone call from a customer that actually wakes me up from my mid-morning 'oh-what-am-I-gonna-do-now' procrastination. But don't tell my customers that... they might want a legal fee rebate.
But it was not all work of course. After a tiring but well-sorted day, we headed down to the Arab Street locality of Singapore. And I took some pictures also...
|In the evening, we walked the famous Arab Street, and wandered into the small|
alleys and side streets nearby. We found a Haji Lane. And it was one way, so
we made our way as per the arrow...
|There appears to be something going on down there. House techno music were|
booming and crowds of people were mingling. This calls for further investigation
of two men with some time to spare in this city of lions.
|I really wanted to get up close to take some shots of that fancy turntable that|
the DJs were playing with. But I was too shy and this is the closest I approached
the Red-Bull sponsored street music team.
|You dont' have to go to Baghdad to get to Baghdad Street.|
On the way back to our budget accommodations to rest.
I haven't written for a couple of days already. Alhamdulillah, I am happy to be in Kuala Lumpur. Singapore was fun and interesting (which is good because it looks like I may have to go down again this coming weekend), but there is of course no place like home.
Don't you agree, sunshine?
