Have been thinking about Singapore and what a good run it was.
Where as Mick didn't like it, and only went to the dockyard boozer and swimming pool.
What a lot he missed. There was Amies bar in Johore Bahru, all ways a good run
with lots of fun and girls. There was Sembawang with its bars and food markets.
There was the Pungol Ponds for fresh water fishing near Serangoon which I thought
was great fun. Also there was Nee Soon, good bars and makan stalls, with also
Johnie Gurkah's the tatooist to finish the night off.
In town was the Brit. Club good for cheap drinking, and down near the commercial
docks was the best pub in town Toby's paradise.
So you see Mick there was more to Singapore than the dockyard canteen.
:roll:

And I didn't even mention the delights of Bugis street and its attractions.
And if you were skint and a keen fisherman like I was there was all ways night fishing
just out of the dockyard gate (Johore end) Singapore side facing Johore Bahru next
to the causeway. Brilliant fishing with plenty of good eating fish caught.
And if you had access to transport, sell your unwanted fish at Serangoon market.

Aye Harry out of the all the places we went to back then it was my favourite place, pity they had to clean it up and ruin it for everybody (including a lot of the locals) but times change I guess, not always for the better unfortunately

I think singers had a more far flung feel to it.Honky Fid was more like New York with trishaws even if it was a good run ashore.I wonder what the China Fleet Club is now?

Pete I'd hate to think mate, probably a place for the senior nobs to hang out.....not unlike the UK version just outside Saltash, near impossible for jack to get to or in I believe when he gets there! Not that Jack matters anymore to them, whoever he was, paid for it did he and his mates, no don't believe that!
