Analogue Adventures – Orient Escapade 1982 – Singapore

All photos taken on May 12, 1982.

Our first tour of the day was back down to the waterfront, where we saw dock workers bouncing huge white bales of rubber latex onto the dock. The architecture of the time was striking, but not a patch on what exists today.

Not much to tell. After working for 3 companies over 43+ years (38 years 7 months with my last company), I finally got that promotion I had waited my entire career for……retirement. I have been exploring this new career for the past 7+ years and while it is not always exciting, the chance to do what I want for myself and my family instead of what my company wants has been very fulfilling. Early on, there was a long list of projects in my “to-do” hopper and I attacked these projects with a vengeance for the first 9 months of retirement. Eventually, my brain told me that this was not what retirement was about, so it took me another 5 months before my industriousness again took over and I attacked another line of projects, this time somewhat shorter and less complicated, as well as many new projects related to the family weddings in 2016. After going hard for 6 weeks and 3 weddings, my body was telling me to relax, then the flu bug hit and as soon as that was done with me, my sciatic acted up. No rest for the wicked. In 2020 and 2021, the Covid 19 pandemic changed the whole retirement gig. I was lucky to not be still working, for sure. I enjoy photography, gardening, working with my hands, walking, cycling, skiing, travelling, reading and creating special photo and video productions obtained in my first pastime. I may never become wealthy in any of these pursuits, but I already feel I am rich in life experiences far beyond any expectation.

  1. Great stuff Allan, we have a few more shared locations here, namely the Botanical Gardens and Mount Faber. I did the exceptional Southern Ridges hike which ended up at Mouth Faber for those views, cable cars and all. Your photos really show off Singapore as a place frozen in time. My favourite shot this time is of Patty in the trishaw. Oh, and I have called the fashion police.

    1. Thanks Leighton. I know how cautious I was about taking photos in those days, to ensure I did not run out of film. Being with a tour group was a double edged sword. We got to see stuff without much effort, but the tour only brushed the surface. Singapore was a good place to end the trip. That shot was a marvelous look back in time and thanks for your fashion intervention. Appreciate your reads and comments Leighton. Have a great Sunday. Allan

  2. I love all these throwback photos, Allan 🙂 I firmly believe that taking the time to look back on our treasured memories can be truly beneficial for our wellbeing as it can help to evoke feelings of positivity and happiness. Because of this, and especially at times like this, we should take more time to appreciate and look back on them. These photos remind us of people, pets, places and activities that we love as well as helping us to remember the past. Tanks for sharing and have a good day 🙂 Aiva xx

    1. Glad you enjoyed them Aiva and glad I put these posts out. They were fine memories for sure. We look back at photos at least 3 times a year, on our anniversary, at Christmas and sometimes New Years Day. I put all my photos and video into a movie production with captions and music, so they can be watched on the big screen. Thanks for coming along Aiva and for your valued comments. Allan
