It's peestick day one. I'm choosing to optimistically believe I'll surge within the next ten days, and I have a body of historical evidence which supports this belief. Of course, I also have a body of historical evidence which runs contrary, but in the honourable tradition of Mendel himself, I'm choosing to ignore it. In the meantime, my eyes are peeled for 'signs'. These are all I've come up with so far:

Singaporean philosophy.


Mr Bea and I have often complained that film runs here seem to end the very second cinemas fail to completely pack a showing, giving a sort of blink-and-you'll-miss-it effect. Now this! Photo taken Thursday afternoon.


If you've ever wondered whether the cliche of Singapore as a heavily-ordered society is true, you need look no further. A footpath cobbler informs his customers...

I think it's in the cards, most definitely.

And I love the cobbler's happy face on his sign. :)

Those signs are much easier to read than any that appear on those damn little sticks.

Good luck! :-)

Love the signs, best of luck.

Is English the main language in Singapore? Just curious, since I can read all the signs.

Bea said...

English is one of the official languages - probably the most widely spoken. Then there's Chinese (Mandarin), which is probably slightly less well spoken (although for all I know it could be as well), and Malay and Tamil, which are less common. Then there's a whole lot of unofficial languages.

Saturday Night late movies would be fun, if they could do them on a Friday at say, 7PM. I'm usually asleep by late night on Saturday.
