Clarke Quay and the Most popular bridge of Singapore 2

This was the 33rd post (Day 33) of an entire year-long series, which I named ‘Project 365′. The idea was simple enough: travel for a full year and document every day of it, in the form of a daily picture and poem. I am still working on a book of this year-long travel, but till then, enjoy all the posts here. You can check out the daily posts in the details below or jump to the final day of the project by clicking here.

3rd August 2014 – Singapore

Don’t build distances, so vast that you drown in them.
And, don’t dream about pastures that you cannot see.
Don’t lead to revile. Don’t follow to beguile.
Liquor is quicker, so just walk this bridge beside me.

When one crazy, clicks another. Clarke Quay bridge, Singapore

Last night, the drinking started at ‘the bridge’, only to end at 5 or 6 in the morning. Now, even if you were living in Singapore for the last 10 years, there is a good chance that you don’t know where ‘the bridge’ is. Neither are you at fault if you started searching the club listings for any establishment named, well, ‘the bridge’.

The bridge in question here, is the one that runs along the Singapore river, at Clarke Quay. Over years, this bridge has become the centre of the pre-drinking culture in Singapore, where people hang around for cheap drinks from the convenience stores nearby, and once they are tipsy enough, then head to the clubs. Given the price of alcohol inside the clubs, this made perfect sense.

Oh, if you want to get any bonus points while hitting on someone in Singapore, let them know that the bridge is actually named ‘the reed bridge’. Even most locals don’t know that bit of trivia.

You can thank me with a beer the next time you see me.
