The Singapore I Want.....
... ... but can I get?
Our much-touted small island nation has always been in the forefront for taking initiatives and being an example for other cities to emulate.
Despite her short 40 years of independence, I still feel that we have a long way to go. We also have to learn from other cities. An exchange of ideas instead of always trying to be the best. "Keeping up with the Joneses" is a more humble way of putting it instead of "NUMBER ONE!"
Proclaiming ourselves to be NUMBER ONE can be quite embarrassing sometimes. Reminds me of Pinkie and the Brain. Two puny little mice who have grandiose plans of taking over the earth.
So what do I want for Singapore?
This is just one of the things I hope I can get.....
Overall it is not just about giving space to cyclists and pedestrians, but it will ultimately make Singapore a gracious society (we seriously lack this virtue here).
