Have you noticed the litter?

Hey Everyone

Not moaning here, but have recently been in Singapore for a short visit. I live in UK and am British but lived in Sing for eight years, and boy, did I notice the difference on Orchard Road in the evening, litter wise. Really, it was a big shock. There never used to be that much stuff blowing around the pavements. Why is this? Less people clearing up, or are you getting more like us litterbugs here in Europe? Maybe I just walked downtown on a bad night, or has anyone else noticed this. Not dreadful by any means, but noticeable.

Which Part of Orchard is that? I haven't noticed cos I haven't been there since the Singapore Sales. It's just too crowded for me.

It was on the corner by Orchard Towers.........haha......not the best place to be at three on a Saturday night, but worth going to see the 'ladeez.'
What do Singaporeans think of the 'ladies' in question? From a Brit's point of view it's interesting and funny and quite sad also, in a way, but what it's like to a citizen of Sing is another matter. I think it adds that quirkiness to society. What do others think?

There is a lot of litter in Singapore - You just gotta know where to find the good stuff...

Go to any of the back alleys of Bugis, Tanjong Pagar or Geyland and theres plenty - Gives a sense of sanity sometimes :wink:
