Well I have landed in Singapore, settled in and enjoying the view from my Hotel room on the 13th floor at the Holiday Inn – Atrium on Outram Road.
Of course every hotel needs a character attribute and the Atrium speaks for itself. Take a look at the inside and outside of this 24 storey building (below). The six lifts that rise and fall within the atrium are a smooth ride and add to the ambience with the feeling of movement changing what could have been a cold cavern by contrast. I had a wonderful day out walking yesterday and intend to get some more exercise today as well as maybe drop in a bus tour. A visit to Sim Lim Square takes care of the technology taste buds and a walk around Bugis Street markets will test your sense of direction but show you a few fashion bargains. Tomorrow, Ian and Mandy Worby from UCB Australia arrive followed closely by Ian and Niki Mackie from UCB Europe. I’ve warned the Hotel to expect them so they have put on extra staff. We meet up with the team from Ravi Zacharias ministries tomorrow morning. There office for the Asia Pacific region is based here in Singapore so I am looking forward to seeing how we can work close with this great ministry by having closer ties both on-air and through our publishing to their resources. There is obviously a benefit to our supporters in gaining access to Ravi’s teaching materials especially after the two previous contacts stopped distributing. Now I’m off to see what I can find as gifts for my kids. More photos can be found at my Picasa site. Check the links on the right hand side menu. Enjoy!
