“Scotty, this is taking wayyy much longer than I thought. Any suggestions?”
“Take a deep breath, Captain. We brought back tons of material. Priceless. Not to mention the beer. The shiplike building above, by the Gardens of the bay, in Singapore, is quite unique, is it not?”
“Yes, yes… It is. But… there are so many layers to any trip. I’m still not sure how I want to handle this.”
“One post at a time, Sir. Like you always say.”
“Right, right. Scotty, you are so right. Well, friends, here we go. Another voyage in Time and space. Asia. Chapter 2.”

Happy chicken near the artist house, Klong (canal) Bang Luang. Bangkok, 2018.
Downtown Bangkok, c. 1957. In those days, most of Bangkok was canals, called Klong in Thai. Life went on along the waters. Most Klongs have been filled up. A few still remain.
A very renowned piece of street art in Penang. 2017. (After)
Before. 🙂 You need about 45 minutes to take this picture without kids. 😉
My mother’s ID, issued in Phnom-Penh, Cambodia. I tell you: we were there. 🙂 A while ago. Sixty years and change?
Captain and crew thank you for your patience on this long-delayed flight in time and (Asia) space. Will be continued once the Captain figures out a better selection and text system. Y’all have a great week-end, naw, ye hear?
