    Better in an old folk home than having to do cleaning job in a food court.

Bought all my photography stuff in Singapore. Starting from an FG working my way up to a D70. Cycled almost every part of Singapore watching how the island has changed. From close knit colourful kampung people and culture set in wooden houses to stone cold condos where people drift apart. Witnessed 5 Singapore Presidents come to be. Witnessing founding fathers go from LKY to GCT to LHL. Spanning a period almost as long as Singapore declared independence in 1965. Just some high lights from my humble Singapore story.

    heheh....nice idea but I already given up hope on that. I actually had one part there but took out the last part later..... "Partok and broke up with 8 Singaporean ladies". ... followed by "No enough money for the 9th one in a decade".

    So your idea is muted. heheh.

    planning to become Singaporean coz of incentives.

    PR & Sing'an have to do the same thing but PR dont get as much as Sing'an, so might as well become Sing'an then surrender Sing'an citizen and go back home after incentives have been collected.

    I guess that makes you "distantly related" to a Singaporean.

Rich women sign my cheques while I sit back....maybe the Singaporean male dream these days....Nah... I have my principles. Die Die...I keep to my values and standards and be happy making my own. hmmm...so who am I? An old school Singaporean I guess. BUT then again..alot of my peers are also weak males like that ....okay..maybe I am the personification of the Singapore's marketing slogan. So I am...."A Uniquely Singaporean" heeeee

    Actually..all my ex/gfs falled way short and definitely the women today will too..except for the few I know and already married to other guys. I know my way around the kitchen, laundry and home cleaning, sewing kits better them all of them while still doing my "man things". No I NEVER expect a woman to know how to keep up with the times too. They are too lazy to keep with the times left alone surpass it....My Mantra: "I step into your shoes and you step in mine but we still keep our core purpose" Thought we suppose to evolve to do more and more efficiently..not do less and be fat and lazy by just pointing fingers. And you wonder why we need even wider seats in Trains.

    Me hard to please but hey ... I made my peace. . I can make pasta dishes myself thank you. heh
