After exiting the emergency room I decided I could be miserable in my armpit of a hostel room OOOORRRR I could go meet Alysson for "lunch". It was lunch in theory but I sure as hell didn't have an appetite.
We met near Clarke Quay, pronounced Clarke Key though I haven't the slightest idea how quay is key. It's a riverfront area tucked next to downtown in as a well-to-do neighborhood along the Singapore river. On one side of the river are governmental buildings with a wide array of architectural styles:
|There's a building that looks like it has a flying saucer on the top that I missed just off the left side of this picture.|
|That is a boat on top of that building. It's a casino.|
Farther down the water front is an area that's basically just for eats. We went to a tapas bar called Octapas with a great mertopus/ meropus /octomaid ? It's not a mermaid because she's got tentacles instead of a fish tail). We walked about just enjoying the night air. It was fantastic even when I was in pain.
