Stayed in the Armara in 88, got a cracking "Ark Royal ships company deal", I seem to remember not being willing to pay the ridiculous price to eat in there!

Is there still an armed forces club opposite Raffles?

Dunno if the Brit Club is still there but had hours of fun on the 10 lane Scalextric track , got faster as the Tiger was flowing paying local youngsters a few cents to put your car back on track :).

Arghh! You had to mention Tiger didn't you ... went on a brewery run in '86 and lost a day of my life!

If anyone goes there for the Independence day parade in the football stadium its a good day and the firework display pisses over anything in this country including NYE!

A fast black from Nee Soon to the brit club swimming ,then a slow stroll through the park to the Union jack club or a meal and a rest, read the Straits times. Then upstairs to grab a seat near the bar for the talent show,the last act always won because we were all to pissed to recall the rest.You had to buy your Tiger tops two at a time. Then to Bougis street[can't spell it] for bottles of screech and a red hot roast chicken which you tore to pieces and yaffeled bare handed. A chew from a lady boy was optional.

Was there in 79 with Group 8 Deployment to Far East and Australia. Starboard side to at Sambawang and taxi into Singa's. Definatly remember Tiger beer and trying to play tennis in a monsoon on a clay tennis court!! I think that may have been the Union Jack Club or other Brit establishment.:cool:

I was on that one - but flew back from Sydney for course in C'Wood so missing Singers (and NZ and Fiji and HK and too many others to moan about....) :(
(Sorry, is this not the 'still bitter and twisted' post?)
We never went to Hong Kong in the end; so it's not as bad as you may have thought it was all these years. ;):D
