The West playing catch up with the East
I was passing by Clementi the other day and saw this poster near the MRT station.
Beach volleyball in the heart of Clementi? What were they thinking? Sun+Sand+Turf does NOT give you Beach Volleyball. There seems to be this rather infantile attempt to inject some ‘fun’ into the Western districts. But why? My kaakis there like it the way it is.
Hang on a sec.... beach volleyball? in Singapore? Am I missing something? How can there be beach volleyball in Singapore? Because we first need to have a beach – water body with natural waves. Like this one....
But all we have for the moment is this....
Just like the way I get this strange feeling that our gahmen is trying to remake the Western districts more like the East, I also have this bizarre sense that we are also trying to make Singapore into something it isn’t.
Instead of attempting to meticulously plan every single square meter of our future, why not let things evolve naturally? And no, we won’t disappear of the world map :)
