So with whatever spare time I had when I was down in Singapore, he brought me to the Gallery of the Urban Redevelopment Authority in Singapore.
There they displayed all the work that has been done in Singapore in the past decades and what else they plan to do in the near future.
The gallery was filled with miniature models of the city of Singapore that looked like these.
What really caught my eye though was a post-it board that allowed anyone visiting to post their "aspirations for Singapore".
People were free to write whatever they thought about Singapore to share them with all the other people who visit the Gallery (like myself).
I love the comments that the previous visitors left.
First, there were the usual patriotic Singaporean messages like this.
Then there were those left by tourists like this which read
"Singapore is OK. Not as great as India.
It still has a long way to go, especially in the Indian Food Department".
And one probably written by an unsatisfied local or an idealistic tourist
Pay attention to the picture and notice the follow-up comment posted right below that message.
And last but not least... there was this
So I guess I'm not the only Malaysian that likes Singapore...
(Dear Malaysia... please do not be jealous... I cheat on you NOT... I love u long time too!).
