Working in Singapore, Day 2

15 09 2016

I heard the rain in the early hours of the morning of my Day 2 in Singapore and this was the view when I woke up.

Time to work and getting to the venue of the convention I am attending, I decided to walk from my hotel which I was told took about 20 minutes.  Luckily, the temperature has been on the low side for where we are, and that encouraged me to do the walk.  Turned out to be rather neat because of the scheduled Formula One Grand Prix this weekend. For one thing, they had closed major roads.

Walking on the bridge from one end of the Marina Bay to the other.

After attending one panel, I decided to go for brunch at the food court inside the shopping mall.

Heard a couple of more panels, did a meeting, and got ready for the panel I was participating in as a speaker.  The conference venue was moving to another building at the ArtScience Museum within the Marina Bay Sands complex.  I don’t have any pics of the panel I was in so posting one of the other panels’.

Stayed on for all the panels in the afternoon and then it was time to get to a cocktail party somewhere in town.  Decided to walk.

Passing through the Telok Ayer Market‘s food court.

And on my way to my destination on the Ann Siang Hill in Chinatown, browsing the Peranakan buildings and the Thian Hock Keng Temple.

Drinks time.  Beers and cocktails on tap.

Then we are off to dinner, quite a spectacular one.
