I am in Singapore

I am in Singapore, there appears to be very few Internet Cafes, I do not think I will be able to blog easily because the computer in the Hostel has stopped my USB thumbdrive from working. I normally type offline and cut and paste the blog onto the computer.

Singapore is sterile so far, boring,unless you never seen a sky scraper, then it would be pretty spectacular. Like Chicago with every speaking bad English, with a Chinese accent.

Nobody seems to be a native or born in Singapore.

I am totally cluesless to know what to do, I suppose I can go take pictures of Starbucks. I hear there is a beach, however I must take a bus or train or something to go there. I am ready for Manila.

I find this comment of yours rather amusing. It's a shame you didn't have the opportunity to speak to educated Singaporeans who speak fluent English with real Singaporean accent. I'm not sure which Guide book you referred to before you came here, but I'm sure it did a pretty bad job in providing accurate information about the country and its natives.

I have to say though that us Singaporeans are an enigmatic bunch of people given the different waves of immigrations at different times, and how much British influence we had received over the years.

This is Andy.
I did not have a guidebook so all the observations are mine. I do not go to great efforts to FIND a culture. It is the culture I encountere, no more, no less.
