Singapore Spoils You
Having been away from the 'hub' of the world, its just amazing on the extent to which Singapore spoils you. Living in Singapore is like living in a cocoon. You are shielded from so many things. Take our transportation system for instance.... train and bus at your doorstep. The cost of our cabs is really cheap when compared with some angmoh countries. Another example is food.... so many cuisines available throughout the island. Nowhere else have I found this. I asked some of my 'foreign' kaakis and they concur that Singapore is one of the easiest places to settle in. There, add one more to the 'hub' list - settling-in hub :)
Oh, of course, we are also shielded from the 'evils' of a free press. But when I read their newspaper and see their TV, its hardly like that. Their media have flaws but that does not exactly make ours the bestest in the wurl.
Anyways, its good to be back. Now need to catch up on the news.... :)
