(Taken near Arab Street, Singapore)
A just question and very fitting for this blog post!
When I told people back in Wisconsin that my husband and I were renting out our house, I was quitting my job, and we were moving to Singapore, I usually got some variation on these four questions:
1) Is that is China? No, it’s off the tip of Malaysia but most of the country is ethnically Chinese so half a gold star.
2) Why? Most people thought we were kind of crazy for completely uprooting our lives and moving across the world, especially since I’d never even been to Singapore. Okay, so it actually does sound kind of crazy but YOLO, right? Ew, that’s so 8 months ago, so I’ll go with carpe diem instead.
3) You can’t chew gum there right? This is true. No gum allowed!
4) Isn’t that where those American guys got caned for spraying graffiti? Yes, yes it is.
The Singapore government likes to keep things both safe and clean and they succeed at both. I walk around at 3 a.m. by myself with no fear. So anyway, when I discover graffiti in Singapore, I’m intrigued. Here are a few examples (apologies for the bad language; I swear I did not graffiti it!).
I’ll share more as I find it!
