Lovey dovey

Here's a teenage couple who insists on being in tandem, hopefully, all their lives. Both have on sweaters that are matchingly the same. They even have on the same footwear, which are flip-flops, but I could not take a clear picture because of the crowd.

Love is in the bus

You just cannot help not noticing when a teenage couple plays with each other on a bus. You are a captive audience, so to speak since it's not yet your stop, nor theirs. So I had some fun watching even though 'Just for Laughs' was simultaneously playing on the mobile TV in the bus. Lacking anything else to do, I recorded it for posterity.

When you travel out of Singapore, you have to drop your expectations about service, efficiency, etc., quite a bit and hope that nothing untoward happens. The picture shows the holding area for departing passengers on Bintan Island's harbour. Way after the 'final call', passengers were trapped because the door leading to the boats was simply chain-locked. What made things worse was that the air-con had broken down, so everybody was literally hot and bothered. I just prayed that a fire would not break out. Otherwise, my companions and I will be on the front pages of regional newspapers.

Wanted in Indonesia

Mas Selamat Bin Kastari remains at large. Wanted posters of him are spread all over Singapore Island. Although not as pervasive as in Singapore, the Indonesia island of Bintan, which is 5 times bigger than Singapore, also has 'Wanted' posters for him, amongst others.
