781 point something square miles. People who knew I was coming here said “you’ll love it, it’s one of the most beautiful places you will ever visit”.  0300 arrival did not match the times I booked the hotel. The couch in the lobby was offered and I gladly accepted. I learned quickly taxi surcharge after midnight are 50%. And  driving on the right is correct. I saw a 24 hr cafe open, an opportunity to people watch.  Immediately I notice some most Singaporeans eat with two utensils spoon and fork simultaneously fork places morsel in spoon. Like a skip loader and dirt.  Drank a singapore sling at the hotel where Ngiam Tong Boon created it so that females could enjoy Gin with their counterparts. Found the two casinos and went to both. One  game called “Sic Bo” or Dar shou (big little)3 dice game is just that Sick!  All that has ever been said or shared about this precious part of the globe is true. “Mind the Gap and Telly TV”  give historical reference to past  British colonization. You wanna own car.. good luck over 200% tax is added along with a bunch of other rules. Foodies delight in the realm of infinite choices. Booze, housing and some  transportation are pricey the rest is great. I love Singapore.  It’s beauty, tolerance and structure provide comfort to those who visit and those who stay.
