Analogue Adventures – Orient Escapade 1982 – Singapore-Hong Kong

All photos taken on May 13, 1982.

A fairly leisurely start to our day with a buffet breakfast in the Belvedere Restaurant in our hotel. We had a good chat with our tour guide and thanked him for his services, before boarding the bus that would take us to Changi Airport.

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. We all wish vacations could last forever. There’s nothing like going away for a trip and feeling so refreshed. You’re high on life and loving every single minute of it. You’re with your family or friends, exploring a new city and there’s no stopping you. Then, it hits you: It’s the last day of your vacation and the party won’t last forever. All of a sudden, you’re dreading the end to a glorious trip, and the start of a new work week. I’ve definitely been there, done that — and it isn’t fun. I think most of us can relate to these struggles when it’s the last day of vacation. Thanks for sharing and have a good day 🙂 Aiva xx

    1. Thanks Aiva. I agree. Of course, being retired now, I have the advantage of not going back to work the next day. My definition of a good vacation is one that runs out before your money does. The good news is we have the memories and photos to remind us how much fun we had. Thanks for reading. Happy Saturday. Allan

  2. Leslie Castro, he looks like a real character. I wonder if he’s still around. I have enjoyed this series immensely Allan and was inspired to come up with a similar presentation approach for an upcoming India series. My photos only date back to 2004 but are in such shape as they could pass for 1982 ha ha.

    1. All of our tour guides were top notch, but Leslie had a sense of adventure about him. Hopefully he is still around. Otherwise, that would mean I am old. Oh Sh–, I am old. Glad you enjoyed the trip Leighton and I am looking forward to your series on India. I still have two more analogue journeys to post – 1984 Greece and Europe Cosmos tour and 1985 Japan on our own with a Japan Rail Pass. All the best and thanks for commenting. Allan

    1. Thanks Lyssy. These were fun series to write. There will be a one week break and then I will start Europe. I obviously take too many photos and have too much to say. 😊Thanks for all your reads and comments. Allan
