Photo 3: Strange thing though, we were both in Hong Kong at one time, we didn’t meet again after that final meeting. She was working in the Bank of America Tower and I was staying at the Furama Hotel Inter-Con, both near Statute Square area. Ten years ago, we were living in the same neighborhood in SG but didn’t know that either. Photo of HK waterfront (c 1988).
Now listen to this verbatim during an exchange of messages to determine our ultimate meeting venue. Even Silver Tsunami babies got problems finding their way around in the New Singapore.
Indeed Singapore today is considered expensive for entertainment. Meeting somebody revolves around food and the same familiar settings. Soft relaxing music not punishing on the ears is lacking and replaced by noisy pubs and clubs. We ruled out Ku De Ta and Dempsey Hill because they were not conducive places for a quiet evening.
This time no more flowers but this song is dedicated to you Syl.
