    Yah.... crazy weather. One by one my family members and students are falling sick and school reopens on Monday! Gosh.

    At the Clark Quay fountains, adults play in it too. :)

  5. Yeah it's really hot these few days, it rains a little at night but not good enough to disguise the heat! We have the AC on from morning till night!

  6. farah,

  7. It's hot and humid where I live too. The child cooling off in the water has the right idea. Happy weekend.

  8. carver,
    Oh, it's summer now in the States.

    Ice-cream would be popular for cooling off! :)

  9. Oh yes... Penang has been very superbly hot for the past one week as well... except for yesterday. LOL. Thanks for the wishes. :D

  10. eastcoastlife: I miss the bumboats that weren't operated by electricity.

    Perhaps it is due to the fact that I would visit the Singapore River every now and then especially when I was feeling down or lost in the past, and the bumboats simply make the river a little interesting to look at.

    Meantime, keep cool, at heart. ;)

  20. I remember dancing in that fountain late at night very drunk one night. Fun times and very wet. Not so good in a cold climate, but in Singapore, perfect.

    ReplyDelete
  21. The first pic reminds me of my nephew. He likes to play with this water fountain everytime he goes to Bugis. (It is in Bugis right? I couldn't quite remember.)

    ReplyDelete
  22. The weather is equally hot in Penang too. And this morning, it's hazy..

    Aiyh... :(

    ReplyDelete
  23. It's stormy here in the Philippines. I love to bathe in the fountain too.

    ReplyDelete
  24. hey! I was at Central last night!
    I was in my usu tee n shorts and of course, I felt completely out of place among the crowd dressed in office or party attire. But I don't really care. Haha. The night view of the river from Billy Bombers Al Afresco seating (we had the best table according to the waiter) was stunning.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Good photos ECL, I love the little girl in the fountain. Could we have a few degrees of that heat. It's freezing here considering it's summer.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Oh a water taxi looks like fun! So bright and colorful too!

    ReplyDelete
  27. wow! that little girl looks like she really missed the shower!

    ReplyDelete

  30. oceanskies,
    I love to watch the river activities at Singapore River. We shall meet for a meal there one day. :)

  31. napaboaniya,
    I cannot swim lah! malu hor? hehe...

    ReplyDelete
  32. colin,
    Whoa!! What fun! I do see some adults and tourists cooling themselves in the fountains. It's supposed to be that way. It's just that many Singaporeans are law-abiding and also shy. They wouldn't think of doing that in the public although it's going to be fun. :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Doreen,
    There is a similar and popular fountain in Bugis which Jaymes love to play too when he was younger.

    This one's in Clark Quay, Singapore River.

  34. Hello Chen!
    Long time no see ah! *hugs*

    Is it a good time to visit you? I die die must try the durians this time!

    ReplyDelete
  35. sho,
    It's common for Singaporeans to be in tees and shorts. The weather's so hot! I think many young people would prefer to discard their cumbersome clothes if they will not be fined. hehe....

    ahhhh.... I'll try to get the table at Billy Bombers too when I'm there the next time. :)

  36. jmb,

  49. Clarke Quay! Stayed near there recently and you photos made me digged out some fond memories :)

    ReplyDelete
  50. horsoon,
    What were you doing at Clark Quay? Work or a night out? :)

    Many foreigners at Clark Quay love to jump into the river for a dip.... it can be very hot and humid in Singapore.

    There are guys competing against each other to see who can swim the fastest to and from the width of the river after a few drinks. Crazy but fun-loving people. hehe....

    ReplyDelete
  51. Ha ha I like the first pic, the little girl looks like she's part of the fountain! Happy weekend dear! :)

    ReplyDelete
  52. mariuca,
    She was enjoying herself, running and screaming as the jets of water hit her. hehe.... I couldn't get her to stand still!

    Happy weekend!
