I went to Singapore for a week in July last year on holiday with my fiancee and, as discussed in the podcast episode that accompanies this post, was happily surprised by the amount of play on show in the famously authoritarian city-state -- which holds is reputation as a "nanny state" as a mark of honour.
I didn't think to document all of the playful things I saw there until we were on the plane back home, but I did nonetheless capture some of it. Below, with light commentary, you'll find a selection of photos from our journey. For deeper context and reflection, as well as more examples of play in Singapore, be sure to listen to the podcast episode.
