In the bad mood caused by the forced cancellation of the visit of Siam, we left Singapore in the morning. Gorgeous palms on its coast waved us good-bye. Passing the South-eastern tip of the Malacca peninsula and the light beacon of Horsburgh, we drove through the Strait of Singapore into the open sea steering towards Hongkong.
During the departure and in the Strait of Singapore there was rainy weather but the sky cleared up in the afternoon. The changes between sunshine and rain created impressive color effects and reflections on the horizon.
During the night, the wind turned to South-east but remained light. The sea was calm.
