Tuesday, May 25th 1915

Arrive at Singapore 6.00 pm and leave 8.30 am next morning standard dollar sharp.  Settlement $2/£1.  We arrive at Kepple Harbour and take tram to Johnsone Pier and go to Europe Hotel for refreshments.  Singapore is a very expensive place.  Saw the Malay village on the water.  Matchwood huts supported upon poles and just above the water.  Seems to be more Hindoos & Malays than Chinese in Singapore and they seem to own all the shops.
