Like I've said before, I really enjoy these night scenes.  This is one of the signs in Geylang, the "red light" district here in Singapore.  I dragged my husband up there one night to take pictures and somehow lost my memory card.  Somewhere in between taking out the old one and putting in a new one, I managed to drop the old one, in the dark.  We even busted out our handy dandy iPhones with the flashlight apps and walked the 10 ft where it must have dropped out over and over again.  And let me tell you, a little ang mo (white) girl basically crawling up and down on her knees on a side street in the red light district is not something the Bangladesh and Malay day laborers are used to seeing.  It was pretty amusing.  One gentleman was kind enough to ask if we needed help, but I think he was just totally perplexed by the situation and was curious.  In any case, the memory card was lost forever, but luckily I had backed it up.  I bribed the hubby with a big bottle of Tiger (the local beer) and all was forgiven.


  1. Sorry about your lost card.It happened to my daughter couple years before on the trip to Paris. She still can't get over that, a specially lost pictures. Your story end up being really funny. Love your work.
