I'm getting a bit lost what the point of all the pink-cheeked bluster is. You live in SG but are railing against public transport in London? Ok, so, when you go home to London buy a car. Most people can afford to in the UK. Most people cannot afford to in SG. JR8 :) just a rant, that's all. Yes, mo...

JR8, you cannot compare SMRT with LU. It is one of my bug bear. Yes, MRT are newish, LU trains are over 160years old. Yes, LU trains only have 4hours or less per day to be restored and SMRT have more hours. http://www.tfl.gov.uk/tfl/livetravelnews/realtime/track.aspx?offset=weekend Look at the plann...

Let's face it; this reaction is all due to this chap being foreign. If he was Singaporean, there is no way this would have come this far. Brits say worse than this daily on Twitter and Facebook, it's only when they do something really stupid, like that guy who threatened to blow up an airport that ...

So what if LU or Circle Line is over 160years old. Thats what I hate, execuses execuses. All stations shuts around midnight-1am. Then supposedly 1am-5.30am thats where maintenance supposedly happens.

Technically, what can they do, aside from refusing to renew his re-entry permit or revoke his PR but at what cost to the country as more and more are convinced it would be prudent to give up their PR and get the hell out of Dodge?

1. Local shops, forget it. However, there's Marks, Gap, Banana Republic, Zara, Tommy Hilfiger, Brookes Brothers, etc. Basically all the shops you can find back home. 2. Shopping Malls - yeap. National hobby. 3. Golf - Singapore Island Country Club? Membership is really expensive. My colleagues here ...
