Here are a few pictures I took of Singapore while driving around. Pretty quiet there as you can see, most folks must have been busy visiting relatives at their homes as it was the Chinese New Year festival. I noted that Singapore is really clean, and their roads are mostly very well kept indeed. Greens are abundant there, something I really would like to see more in Kuala Lumpur. Despite Singapore being scarce for land, I am impressed at how much space they allocate for their parks and greens instead of turning it into a huge concrete jungle alone. Very generous planning really, and if you have experienced their public transportation especially the MRT, you will know just how efficient they are. This is why Singapore is where they are now, and other Asian countries except for Japan, are still lagging behind them despite having longer histories. Singapore's orderly planning never ceases to amaze me...
