SINGAPORE’S JUBILEE SG 50: BOTANICAL GARDEN UNESCO HERITAGE SITE – ORCHID GARDEN

SINGAPORE’S JUBILEE SG 50: BOTANICAL GARDEN UNESCO HERITAGE SITE – ORCHID GARDEN

 

We drove to Singapore to join the golden weekend celebration. The traffic was light on our side, and immigration was smooth and easy, but on the reverse traffic, the automobile queue was from immigration to immigration; five hours of waiting time for engines to boil and soaring anger and frustration by our Malaysian side. The currency exchange at almost 2.9 ringgit to a dollar might explain the traffic and the mad rush.

The Singaporeans were having a gala time in their golden jubilee 50th anniversary. Across the causeway, the mood was depressing. I was informed the Singaporeans were not happy, but, if that was true, they climbed the wrong end of Maslow ladder, attempting to reach heaven for more thinned-air freedom. Our best produce (fishes, fruits) have gone to feed the Singaporeans, for they offer better prices than Malaysians could offer. Good and poor governance are not reflected in rich resources, but in minds that are growing or fixated.

I have not named the orchids, for to give it a name is to miss its beauty. I have also not included people in my photo, for I dislike comparisons.
