Thread: Time: Singapore is a 'Lexus'

    Exclamation Time: Singapore is a 'Lexus'

    http://www.time.com/time/magazine/ar...4897-1,00.html

    "I tell people Singapore is the Lexus of countries," says David Martin, a U.K. citizen who moved to Singapore three years ago and now is general manager of the Marina Bay Financial Centre, a $2 billion office-and-residential project that is under construction in downtown Singapore. "Lexus could be the most well-made car out there, but it will never be as attractive as a Mercedes or BMW."

    Well, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I've never like Mercedes design anyway Lexus design is getting better.

    In Europe, Mercedes and BMW are used as cab. But I have never seen Lexus used as cab before

    hahahahahahaha

    i read the report and review and found it superfluosly glossed over!!!!!!!

    they did not mention what happened to Johns Hopkins University branch here...neither did they talk about the failure of the most current UNSW-ASIA?

    Biotech performing super well....(no wonder every layman so easily believe that researchers earn like crazy....)..yeah..more of the big money spinners like Spfizer, GSK, Merck....which are essentially ENGINEERING MANUFACTURING companies....not RESEARCH Institutes! hence the real researchers which push the boundaries getting high pay? ...... if so, i'm sure we will be one of the TOP jobs that is being BENCHMARKED.........

    ridiculous.....


    i'm sure there are more loopholes...but then again, i don't know others except the disciplines i listed..

    I think you are saying you prefer the Advertising & branding of Lexus and probably not the Lexus itself. You can buy a Toyota and have the saem base as a Lexus.

    So, technically speaking, your preference is the branding and not the car.

    Lexus = Toyota, plenty used as taxi on roads all over the world. Toyota Crown being the most popular due to the huge trunk.

    I disagree with you, but then again, it's a matter of personal preference. Lexus is too clinical for my liking.

    Gimme a restored 1985 MB C126 anytime.
