Balustrades by the sea

Nice, old fashioned balustrades at the Changi Beach Club, previously the Changi Swimming Club. In 1972, the Singapore Sports Council (then known as National Sports Promotion Board) took this building over from the British Airforce Officer's Club when the British forces pulled out of Singapore. It became a private club in 1988.

Oh yes, many moons ago, also booked a holiday chalet at Fairy point. One of those old colonial bungalows with really high ceiling. It was there that I experimented with coconut fried rice, my own recipe. Only I liked the dish. I wonder why!

Yes ...I remember the ceiling was quite high at the holiday bungalow I was in. Coconut fried rice hv not tried before, the closest I tried with coconut is our local favourite Nasi Lemak :)
