Another first -- first time on mainland Asia. Or even Eurasia, for that matter. And today... Southernmost point on mainland Asia, Palawan Beach on Sentosa Island, Singapore. Photograph proof acquired. Although... Well, it's almost certainly a lie. Palawan beach wasn't the southernmost part of the island. Nor, actually, is it attached to mainland Singapore. Nor, actually, is Singapore (itself an island) actually attached to the mainland. But hey, that's just what the sign said.

So, I guess, hey, not yet first time on mainland Asia, either, but that will come soon enough. When I land in Kuala Lumpur on Monday.

Anyway, we also saw the giant Merlion (also from the inside!) and lots of container ships and tankers out in the bay. I dunno why that made me happy, I just like ships. And trains, and planes -- not like an otaku or anything, just in a general, low-key kind of way.
