    I attended work related conference earlier this year. I have been to Singapore for the umpteenth time. But I must confess that I am not a big fan of सिंगापुर! I think Singapore is mechanical and robotic type of place with no spontaneity and no culture of their own. Yes they do have the multi-cultural (Indian and Chinese) Fish head curry and Singaporean English! For myself, Singapore is synonymous with perennial Mustafa and Orchard Road. I know things have changed drastically. Since my stay was very short I had only an evening and an afternoon to spare for leisure. This first evening I walked along Clarke Quay which was very close to my hotel. The second afternoon I ventured to Mustafa and Little India. This should be more of a short photologue!
    A teaser to start in BCMTouring tradition!

    Evening Uno:
    I attended my meeting in National Heart Center Hospital from 9:00 to 17:00 hours. After meeting we were ushered for a delicious treat at StraitsKitchen. The crab curry was Yummy. After dinner we returned to our hotel. I decided to take a walk since I was overate! I walked towards Clarke Quay.
    Clarke Quay is situated upstream from the mouth of Singapore river, now a pedestrian walkway along the quay. It was named after Sir Andrew Clarke, Singapore's second Governor. The warehouses along the quay have been restored housing restaurants and night clubs. The Chinese junk ships have been refurnished to floating restaurants.
    Other than the restaurants you will find historic and landmark buildings and bridges as you walk to and along Clarke Quay.

    Let the pictures take you along Clarke Quay!
