I remember when the campaign first came out and my honest to goodness thoughts about that tag line. Well, I have grown since then and I’ve also said before this space is for happy thoughts so there goes my opinion on the whole campaign. With that said, I do love Singapore, living here and what I reckon are pretty unique to just us.
Part of my job requires me to host foreign film makers when they come to Singapore, show them around, introduce the local media scene to them and hopefully, they’ll make a film here some day. So when we had some guests from out of town over last month, I got to “re-see” Singapore and thought to myself, it is quite a pretty city.
Sure, we kinda made up, there isn’t a clear horizon we can look out to despite being an island and yah, sometimes it can be hard to differentiate between some Singaporeans and pigs. I’ve learnt to be grateful for it all especially having lived elsewhere in the world. I wouldn’t give the constant temperature, teh halia, shopping malls with everything I need, food 24hours a day, decent public transport system and the safety for anywhere else in the world.
This is a pretty view, isn’t it?
If life has it’s way, I think in the future I’ll have to live somewhere else before coming back to Singapore again. It’s just a hunch, I don’t know but if I had to live in Singapore for the rest of my life, I wouldn’t complain either 🙂 Hell, I know a list of other places I rather NOT be living in. So for now every time the heat gets to me or if I have to wait another extra 15mins for the bus, I’ll remember at least everything is clean 😛
One thought on “Uniquely Singapore”
Hey! I love that cityscape too! I get to see it every morning on my way to work and if I’m lucky and the sun’s right, the entire view from the sheares bridge is vieled in gold. I especially love to contrast of the old European town and the glossy new skyscrapers.
Yes, Some Singaporeans ARE pigs, but what to do/ We take the good with the bad!
oh! Congrats on the new camera!
