Father's Day

Father's Day - Ok father's day was spent on a simple lunch and a little scenery enjoyment along Singapore river. There was a handing over ceremony on that day as the bumboats (sounds awkward and doubt many of you know what they are unless you've seen the picture above) are going to be electrical after so many years of diesel usage. A rather interesting sight to catch as they allow the elderly to board the traditional diesel bumboats for the one last time. I used to sit in one of them before along Singapore river as well as in Indonesia and it was a pretty rough but insightful ride due to the old school nature of it (brings back the good old days effect). Lets hope the electric bumboats would continue this good old tradition with minimal pollution.
