Singapore (Part 1)

Singapore, or Singapura, the only City-State in the world that is also an Island. I have worked and lived here for four years from 2007 till 2011. Founded by Sir Stamford Raffles, Singapore became independent from the United Kingdom in 1963. I was two years old then, (and don’t remember a thing). I was surprised to learn how little people knew about Singapore. With people I mean my family and friends. “Oh you are in Singapore now?” ” Where is that, Indonesia?”, I would hear. When in Singapore there is no doubt that you will realize fairly quickly that all is about one thing, MONEY! It is said that Singapore has the highest percentage of millionaires in the world. One out of every six households has one million dollars in disposable wealth, so it is said. “Acute” poverty is rare. Well from what I have seen it is not that rare. There is a shiny cover over Singapore and if you scratch hard enough another side of Singapore will reveal itself. By the way, what I write here are my experiences and observations. Feel free to disagree.
