Back home again
The river walk sounded nice. Each time to come at the city from a different perspective.

River Walk
I like walking along the river. Sometimes I'll just sit and watch it for a while - but saying I'm watching the river doesn't sound very interesting.

Thanks for making history come alive.
I used to compete in dragon boat races on the river mouth. While I was aware of some of the history of the area, you really made interesting with your focused snippets. I must have walked past that mosque a dozen times without thinking much about it.

History
Thank you for your kind words. There are so many times in Singapore where I will walk past a building and wonder what it was when it was first built - there are a lot of stories there. I highly recommend the pamphlet "The Singapore River Walk," put out by the National Heritage board.

Happy New Year Karen
Looks like you are having a good time and enjoying retirement. I am happy for you. The weather is cold but we haven't had allot of snow. I am ready for summer already. We are thinking about where we will go next but no big plans yet. We are enjoying a leisurely life. Keep in touch!

Retirement
Retirement is a wonderful thing; I highly recommend it. Good to hear from you, and I'm happy you are following along on my adventures. PS. I do NOT miss snow.

Winners are grinners
Was it your horse "Sauce on Side" that blew them away on New Years Day, Karen? Winners are grinners no matter whether you were half a World away!!!

Winners
The New Year's Day winner at Santa Anita was Tizamagician, another horse I have a very small share of. His sire was Tiznow, and his dam was Magic Union, hence the name. Sauce on Side was claimed out of a race last spring and is now racing in Florida. I no longer have an ownership interest in her.

Holy crap!
A winner.... look at your smile.

Tizamagician

A winner
Actually, that picture was taken before he won anything. He's just such a handsome devil I can't help smiling. There are some rumblings that he may be a Kentucky Derby contender.

Singapore
Singapore is one of my happy places. Even though I've visited here often, I always learn something new.

Incredible creatures
Ahhh, horses. Such magnificent creatures--I never tire of marveling at their beauty! And you're looking great, Karen! Happy New Year and safe travels always!

Incredible creatures
Tizamagician is such a good looking horse that standing next to him makes me look good, too.

good memories!
Although stopped in Singapore a number of times, but mostly during stopovers, still walking down Orchard Street brings back the memories. Great capturing history of Malay Motors. Thanks,

Memories
Singapore does such a good job of repurposing buildings. Yesterday I went to the Asian Civilizations Museum, part of which is housed in what used to be the Treasury's strong room. (Think the Singaporean equivalent of Fort Knox.)

Starbucks
Starbucks is slowly taking over the world, one frappachino at a time. Resistance is futile.

Racing in Japan
I love that you are following your passion in other countries. Fantastic. Dave is working in Orange County and I'm in SF but I come down. Let's try to get together again. Let's try a different track. Sounds like the Japanese are smart about horse racing and breeding.

Racing
Yes, it's fun to see how different places handle racing. What started as a pretty simple contest of "My horse is faster than yours," has turned into something much bigger.

Glad you are back in Japan
You always find things other people don't. Thanks for a new perspective.

Happy to have you along
One of the advantages to going to the out-of-the-way places is that they are rarely crowded.
