The high school cafeteria at the new campus. When we were in school everything was cooked to order but on the new campus it is so big and everyone eats at once so now everything is under heat lamps.

New International Baptist Church building. We worked hard to expand the building but it was hard as the city wouldn't let us build up. So finally, they tore it down and went down, putting in an underground carpark and leaving more surface area for a bigger building.

One thought on “Photos from Singapore

  1. I was away when this came. I was in Singapore, Saigon and Geoje (Koje) Island Korea, so just saw these today, Sat., June 22, 2013. What a trip down Memory Lane and how interesting to see what you photographed and I didn’t, who you photographed and I had not, and your angles on shots vs. the ones I took. It was great! I shall save this if I can. It is wonderful to see other people’s version of the same few days. You’ll hear from me when I have a minute as I want to know more about WordPress.com as my guru recently set me up with a Blog and I don’t like it. It is FB all over again and I was disappointed with the rules, the format etc. It was intrusive. I’m looking for something very personal and private. Send me an e-mail with your telephone number and I will SKYPE you and Heath as I have lots of questions.
