SIN Then & Now

23 Oct 2012 – After a Century+

SIN has all the reasons to be proud for what it has achieved in just over a century. But like everything and anywhere, there is no Utopia or a perfect system; again subjective and objective actions, thoughts and words are flying around in the recent controversy issue. Sometimes these actions, thoughts and words can have constructive consequences but unfortunately they are the seldom times…

Being born and having lived in SIN the first 15yrs of life might have helped to understand a subjective tiny bit of the situation, does not mean that one has to agree! Being aware with open mind and thoughts are more important as one perhaps may learn to see things more objectively… eg the pros and cons of any culture and society and learning to respect the differences, ie no better or worse.

FOR the seventh year running, Singapore has been ranked the easiest place to do business in the world, according to a new World Bank report. By Magdalen Ng for ST

Believe it or not, this movie is banned not for the SEX but according to CNN’s reporter: Singapore has banned a film by local director, calling it racially offensive: CNN’s Liz Neisloss.

A valid comment from Francis Wong in FB: Could it be a PR stunt by the Sing Govt to promote the country as a creative hub? Now the whole world is looking for this movie? Reply: My thoughts too 🙂 and trying to promote an island-state country like SIN is just like any other good marketing strategy!

A couple of days ago, SC Yeo in FB shared this link where SIN is ranked #2 with healthy food. Now this is nearer to my heart and in SIN and some of our neighbouring countries, we are blessed with fresh produce from world-wide to choose healthy diet as part of our life-style. Thus what is best for you might not be best for others…

The food scene in SIN at the link below is well worth checking out. It provides 10 different street food with 10 various locations. This informative link also has info for 9 other Asian cities besides SIN. As George Bernard Shaw so eloquently said – There is no love more sincere than the love of food…
