I have thoroughly enjoyed this having been to Singapore, off and on, for the last few years. I've enjoyed it so much that I might one day come and live in Singapore as an expatriate for a few years - teaching for a Uni or a poly, or working for a market research company.
I have learnt that there are two Singapores, the "Paragon Singapore":
And the "Lucky Plaza" Singapore:
And that I'm way more comfortable in the second one:
Simply can't afford to live in the other one, unless someone else is paying. And of course the extreme version of the low cost Singapore, the Hotel 81 Dickson in Little India, which almost feels like a spiritual home.
And one last reflection. They're always building. It turns out that this view of UE Square will have another hotel in front of it, if I get back.
The old blue building at the front is getting knocked down, the white building is temporary workers accom and it seems all that green will be building footprint.
