    Did I just hear a collective sigh of relief from the population of Singapore ?

    Singapore is not to bad if one stays away from tourist pubs and such but any decent hotel is dam expensive.

    Bummer as I do like Singapore.

    To put it into context, whereas you have no redeeming feature whatsoever, Mid posted his trite comment only because I had upset his sensibilities in another thread. This was somewhat unusual for him being a level headed sort of chap and I responded accordingly.

    Is it your pitiful life's work to traipse aimlessly round every thread in the fora, cocking that little hind leg of yours on whichever post takes your fancy as you mark out the miserable extent of what may pass for your feeble intellect?

    The pun is intended and quite clever in the circumstances.

    Singapore is OK in small doses but it has cleaned itself up so much that it has become unreal

    a bit like Milton Keanes full of Chinese, with a touch of Disney

    If that is the sum quality of your thinking in relation to a unique cultural entity then I suppose one may well discard anything else that might seep out of what may pass for your undoubtedly dismal consciousness.

    Singapore is the apotheosis of achievement and should be applauded for its sterling progress even if it may not include a seam of filth and corruption easily quarried by degenerate, second rate dross looking for a quick shag in circumstances not otherwise available to them.

    Singapore is actually a fine place but the economics of it do make one pause for thought if only to speculate on just how stratospheric property prices can rise and yet still afford a sense of nationhood achievable by the ordinary citizen.

    I do like the place but I suppose sentiment, born out of the fact I grew up there as a teenager, might play a role. The bawdy charms of the island were readily found in Bugis Strasse, Lavender and Arab Streets and down in Geylang but they were never that defining and have long since evaporated as much as the bucolic charms of a trip to Ponggol Point en route to Pulao Ubin or perhaps even a day spent on the pagar or medan by Changi beach before a long bus ride home through a verdant tropical rainforest lushness via the Tampines Rd running parallel to the water pipeline hydrating the island from peninsula Malaya or possibly an expedition through the Mandai swamps north of Nee Soon amidst the Japanese trench lines dug in 1945.

    Never mind, eh? The place is crap because a repulsive bin bag like you 'andshandy can't cop a cheap shag. Stands to reason, don't it?

    You dull headed bag of shite.

    PS. It's Milton Keynes you dumb fuck.

    you really are a vulgar little man under your coat of pretentiousness

    I don't find anything to dislike in Singapore, but equally, not much to like except the food and some of the people - all that culture (unique cultural entity!!) you may remember from when you were a stupid spotty youth does not exist any more, at least in a coherent form

    as for cheap shags, they are easily found there today if you are so inclined, but I never have bothered and never needed to. When I worked there I had a relationship with a co-worker who was lovely, we are still friends although she now lives in Hong Kong

    anyway, I am glad you know all about Milton Keynes, it is important to spell it correctly otherwise nobody would know where you were referring to

    your hate for me seems to be clouding your reason, such that it is. Maybe you had better go take your meds and change your colostomy bag and dream of when you were a teenie in verdant lands
    I have reported your post

    I think they have a bus across the causeway, maybe a train too

    usually very easy as it is well organised

    make sure you put your bike somewhere secure though, as they have a habit of vanishing

    Yep the bus accross is easy peasy.
    Found a great little homestay place in JB for only 15rg a night. Clean and I really hit off with the owner as we are on the same page regarding health care and being independant of government.

    Yep, the bus from JB is frequent and easy. The Singapore Zoo is a must see even if you don't like that stuff, Simply world class amazing establishment.

    Regards costs, Singapore is very reasonable if one takes public transport and steers clear of upmarket pubs and restaurants. The local eating markets are great value and beers are reasonable within the establishment.

    The accommodation has become simply over priced but one must just bight the bullet on that one and pay the bigger dollars to stay in a nice gaff.

    Just the way it is these days in Singapore and go with the flow.

    Must get back there soon as I've always had a nice time there and met some good locals who actually know whats going on in the world up against Thailand where the average local knows fok all.

    Where is Fatboy? I liked that guy.
    Stroller is a Yerman faggot.

    Yea I spent yesterday in SG got the shopping I wanted done.
    Yep its really easy hopping the bus from JB.
    Checked prices on cameras and they're much more than the USA! Fo k that.
    Went to little india and had a great massala dosa for $1.80sg.
    I didn't stay the night because my place in JB was too cheap(15rg) and good parking.

    Mr.Slim, some interesting stuff there. I move to Singapore in 1991. Me and the Mrs still have a place inBSP which we rent and an fairly new HDB in woodlands. I have ridden Motorcycles, driven cars between Singapore and Thailand, but Singapore fails to bring me back. First drive I did was in a Land Rover the company shipped over from the UK under carnet as I had to take a lot of filming equipment up to Phuket and it was cheaper to ship the thing over on a Ro Ro back then.Still, have some happy days of Singapore from back in 1984 when I first visited and theRaffles Hotel was the Raffles Hotel!

    Should have seen it in 1966!

    Singapore was another country then. A city rich in cultural diversity and architecture, suburbs and actual countryside where folk lived in kampongs and natural beaches laced the coast along Changi.

    They destroyed their heritage totally in 40 years. Quite astonishing really.

    Hi Slim! :)

    Thank you for sharing some pictures in Singapore when you're on way to Tanjong Pagar. Indeed, Tanjong Pagar is so nice place. They already have lots of new building when you go there. Really beautiful building business. And one of those beautiful building there is what do we call Tanjong Pagar Center which is located near the Tanjong Pagar MRT Station. Isn't it beautiful? Have you been there? The Tanjong Pagar Center is a large scale integrated development comprise a luxury business hotel linked to the main tower. Thank you so much.

    I used to stay at an old hotel called the" 7th story hotel " near Bugis Street.

    Fantastic place, cheap and really great atmosphere located in a large park standing alone.

    Wanker Government reclaimed it for another MRT station.

    Bastards.

    Only for accommodation.

    Reasonable priced food and drink to be had away from fancy restaurants and pubs.

    Public transport is efficient and cheap.

    Over all a heap cheaper than Australia if one knows the go.

    I'm going there next April after a Boat cruise I'm doing. Its ending there, I'm looking forward to it as I ain't been there for 4 years.
