Official Opening of Marina Bay Promenade

Decided to be part of the massive clusterfuck at Marina Bay. About a 100 kayaks, 4 dragonboats and 16 sail boats went down to the Marina Bay Promenade area to salute PM Lee and basically just paddle around aimlessly.
It was nice to paddle around inside, but then again, we used to go into that area freely without many problems. It was only after the construction of the Marina Bay Sands that the area was blocked off and became off limits.

I also was part of an expedition team that escorted some PA big shots into the Singapore River. This was probably the highlight of the trip because I managed to paddle in without having to do the ridiculous amount of paperwork.

Your post leaves me with a sense that you are less than uncritically pleased with the parameters within which you are legally required to exercise your functional capacity for self-direction.

I have trouble with sanctioned, group activities - you know, philosophically speaking. Also, even when I try my best, I have difficulty complying with rules and unwritten group norms. On the other hand, there are so few activities of that sort around here that involve paddling that I am attracted to their novelty.
