I am in Singapore for a few days between travels. Reacquainting myself with hawker food, the steamy weather and cold Tiger beer. A lot of the food courts have been revamped which means great clean toilets but a lot of the charm of the originals has been lost in the process. They are starting to feel like an outdoor McDonalds with their colourful shiny plastic furniture.
The number of new condos being built is remarkable. Some have surprisingly good architecture and I would not be surprised if some of the most interesting residential high rises are being built here at the moment. I am staying at the very pleasant if unfortunately named, The Legend, on Bukhit Timah Rd courtesy of my old friend Karl.
