Singapore is..

Where Chinese who lives in Malaysia, and Malay who lives in Singapore have similar customs.

Its safe to drink tap water and yet most of them buy mineral water bottle (which now believed to have harmful chemicals)

Tipping a taxi driver or anyone is considered an insult!

People get pissed off when train takes a second or two to open the doors to the platform.

Pedestrian thinks pressing the signal umpteen times would make it green soon.

Rickshaw tours are still popular.

you can see devoted chinese in Ganapathi temples and Indians in Budda temple . The second part mostly involves cannon camera (those with big lenses which looks exactly like the big cannons at war) shutterbugs.

Men walk around completely "free" in swimming pool shower rooms.

Milo can be declared as national drink.


Thou shall always count thy blessings

Dear you,

Cant believe I am writing this from Singapore. At one point i really packed my dream in a big suitcase and kept it  in the loft. Was walking around with clown over my head. The visa , the students loan, I couldn't wrap my mind around the whole thing.

I am now a Master degree student in Raffles Singapore! Feels great to say it, even more to write it.  The feeling is bittersweet, still settling. Change of country and new college , new syllabus, profs, class mates whoaaa!

And the best thing that happened to me is the feeling of being loved by my Friends! I am really amazed by the generosity and kindness they have showed me. I had to show a bank balance of the total fee required to finish the course for the visa process.  I was depending on the loan to come , which would take days to finish.

I made few phone calls and money just flowed into my account from everywhere. In matter of few days I have become a privileged customer of ICICI Bank :P  can you believe that ? not to sh…
