Just to make it IMF related, the Singapore Navy was out in force during the IMF. They had ships running parallel to the LNG tankers in the straights... between the tanker and shore.


You work in the marine line? Or you were out fishing and observing alot of their activities? :P


Coming back from Batam. The ferry was boarded by Singapore police who looked at every face on the boat.

Those are from Singapore Navy? Or Police coast guard? If coast guard, then they are from Home Affairs. Navy seldom board other boats like this.
