We Sail Tonight For Singapore!

“We sail tonight for Singapore
We’re all as mad as hatters here
I’ve fallen for a tawny moor
Took off to the land of Nod.”  -Singapore, Tom Waits

(The following pictures were taken over the spectacular Chinese Lunar New Year Celebration 2014!)
“Drank with all the Chinamen
Walked the sewers of Paris
I danced along a colored wind
Dangled from a rope of sand.
You must say goodbye to me.”   -Singapore, Tom Waits

(It was...and is now finished...the year of the Horse!)
“We sail tonight for Singapore
Don’t fall asleep while you’re ashore
Cross your heart and hope to die
When you hear the children cry.”  -Singapore, Tom Waits

(Photos of rickshaws all wrapped up for the night on an early morning jog.)
“Let marrow bone and cleaver choose
While making feet for children shoes
Through the alley
Back from Hell.”   -Singapore, Tom Waits

(Downtown Hindu Temple...What's Up!)
“When you hear that steeple bell
You must say goodbye to me.”  -Singapore, Tom Waits

(Singapore Downtown from atop the Marina Bay Hotel)
“Wipe him down with gasoline
Till his arms are hard and mean
From now on boys this iron boat’s your home
So heave away boys.”  -Singapore, Tom Waits

(Celebrating Year of the Horse)
“We sail tonight for Singapore
Take your blankets from the floor
Wash your mouth out by the door
The whole town is made of iron ore.”  -Singapore, Tom Waits

(Kicking it with Bruce Lee)
“Every witness turns to steam
They all become Italian dreams
Fill your pockets up with earth
Get yourself a dollar’s worth.”  Singapore, Tom Waits

(Universal...of course)
“The captain is a one-armed dwarf
He’s throwing dice along the wharf
In the land of the blind, the one-eye man is king.”  -Singapore, Tom Waits

(Cable Cars over the City!)

“Away boys, away, boys, heave away.” –Singapore, Tom Waits

(Marina Bay Sands...that's us on 56th floor!)
