More Annoyed than Amused

Singapore

Posted by parsingtime on July 4, 2007

I’ve only been in Singapore for about eight hours now and let me say: I heart Singapore. It is so clean. Spitting is illegal. They hide the guard rails on the side of the road with flowering bushes. It is clean. I can walk everywhere in flip flops without fear of that disease you get in India if you walk through dog or rat urine.  Also no monsoon. Everyone speaks English, which I speak too. Shopping. Fresh fruit juices you can actually drink without fear of GI disease. You can drink the water from the tap.  Cake shops on every other corner. Have I mentioned how clean it is?

What makes Singapore even better is that there are no rats running through the airport. Ahem, Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport, please do something about the cat size rats in the terminal.

Oh Singapore, I really do love you. Seeing Singapore having been in India for the last three weeks has given me a new found appreciation for just about everything in my life.

Happy Forth of July everybody. It feels weird not to be BBQing or at least watching the celebrations on TV.

    You didn’t mention the cake shops! I knew I should’ve booked more time there…
