Singapore's best-selling author is back. After spending the best 10 years of his life in Singapore Neil Humphreys has decided to move to Australia. But the British writer doesn't want to leave the island he fell in love with a decade ago without taking one final tour. Embarking on a valedictory tour from his home in Toa Payoh, Humphreys vows to explore Singapore as he did when he first arrived - a newcomer on foot and inexperienced - visiting his favourite places, from the glorious countryside of Lim Chu Kang to the serene beaches of Kusu island. From Sentosa to Sembawang Park, St. John's Island to Johor Bahru, Humphreys treks, cycles and even hitchhikes his way across this great island, encountering murderous dogs, dead cats, wild crocodiles and mad cyclists. Honest, insightful and funny, "Final Notes from a Great Island" is a warm, uplifting tribute to Singapore and its inhabitants.
