Garden Bathroom in a Garden City

I really had no idea that it was this easy. All I had to do was to put a small money plant in my bathroom and immediately I had a “garden bathroom in a garden city”. That’s correct… if an Australian university can decorate their campus with greenery and our media can call it a “garden university in a garden city”, my bathroom is no worse. Seriously, we tear down a whole park in the centre of town to build the allegedly prestigious Singapore Management University (SMU) and now when a private university decides to plant some trees on its campus, it becomes…. “garden university in a garden city”?

The focus of the prestigious OZ uni is more about its green campus and less about its academic programs. According to the news report, the design of the campus is “unique and inspired”. Whenever you read that, it means…. “copied and modified”. Of course wat…they plan to build a so-called verandah that will “serve as a central meeting point for students from various disciplines”. It’s all very simple isn’t it? Have an open space somewhere in the middle of your campus and immediately it becomes a meeting point where brilliant minds gather, collaborate, come up with hundreds of patents, probably even win a Nobel Prize and most importantly, make Singapore into an education hub. NUS, NTU, NP, NYP all got such open spaces wat....

According to the architect, the new campus will “….dissolve all boundaries, not just culturally but also physically…”.Can you imagine what will go on in that campus? We will have an inter-cultural romp every weekend! Frolic that is condoned by the authorities…! Now I’m really envious….:p

yeah, the SMU campus is very nice. But i would hv preferred the old Bras Basah park there instead. Am sure the SMU campus would hv looked good no matter where it was built :)
