Today was the second day of 2017. I was at the Keppel Harbourfront (behind VivoCity) with my wife spending a relax cooling stroll this morning and enjoying the beautiful harbour view.

Keppel Harbour has been a thriving maritime gateway for international trade since the late 19th century. It was originally known as New Harbour and was renamed in honour of Admiral Henry Keppel in 1900. During the Second World War, Allied soldiers came through this harbour to strengthen Singapore and Malaya’s defence. Thousands of civilians and troops made their escape through here before Singapore fell on 15 February 1942. Allied commandos carried out Operation Jaywick, successfully destroying seven Japanese ships that were stationed here.
