To my dear Malaysian readers.... FUUUUWAAHH YOU WON'T GUESS WHAT I SAW THAT DAY IN SINGAPORE!!!
Let me start from the beginning...
Yesterday morning (in Singapore), my partner Ming met with a car accident on his way to pick me up for work.
His Volvo XC90 went up the arse of a local taxi that looks something like this (but in blue). Naturally after a car accident, we have to take the car to a workshop to evaluate the damage (his Volvo wasn't too badly damaged but the taxi he bumped into had its rear severely destroyed). Now when Ming told me that he was taking me to a workshop, I thought it would be one of those Bengkel Kereta's that we see back home but nooo... he took me to this building. And inside this building, there were many many floors that were linked by ramps like thiswhich takes you to a thousand workshops like this
all put together in the same place.
It was like a shopping mall but only instead of having retail shops in the shop lots, there were BENGKELS in each and every one of them.
Now even your car can go window shopping.
I couldn't believe what I saw.
I was like
"HOLY CRAP THIS IS SO DAMN COOL".
But Ming replied
"What? This is normal lah! You mean you don't have something like that in Malaysia?".
I was tempted to lie and say
"Oh yeah... we had something like this in Malaysia in the 1980s. Now we just have a little car teleporter that beams the car we want to repair up into space to let our space monkeys work on it quickly under zero gravity conditions and then send it back down to us again in only a few minutes".
But I knew he wouldn't believe me so I didn't.
Anyway, we got to our designated workshop and the guys checked out the damage on Ming's car.
While I admired the Golf GTI in the workshop right opposite the one we were at.
Yet, even after we left the "Auto Mall", I glanced at Ming to see he was still nearly in tears.
So to cheer him up... we went to the Red Light District of Singapore...
GEYLANG MARI !!!
