Rick & Randy in Singapore
We had a DELIGHTFUL (but quick) trip to Singapore. We got to spend some time with two sets of friends; one we haven't seen since 1998 and the other set good friends from college. Randy was a gracious host (as always). We had a fun time with his family, then he and I hit the town. We didn't paint it very red, however, because it was raining to beat the band. But, we managed to kill a couple of hours at one of the many Starbuck's on Orchard Road.
All in all, my impressions of Singapore are:
1) very clean,
2) very expensive,
3) the definition of what happens when lots of paranoid, anal-retentive Asians take control of their own destinies,
4) very beautiful,
5) very expensive.
I am ready to go back when I have more time. In fact, I can't wait to get back to Singapore.
