Country Art

Hey there!

I woke up this morning with the worst headache in a decade.  Guess the flu just doesn’t want to leave me alone these next few days.

Thank goodness my kitchen has a drawer full of medicine that could shame a pharmacy.  Decided to pop some Bisolvon and Clarinase Reptabs before going to work.

On the way to work, I couldn’t resist taking a picture of this:

What the heck is that?

I guess it looked cute in some bizarre sort of way.  Oh, for those of you who don’t live in Singapore, vandalism is a major offence.  One could get up to 3 strokes of the cane for an offence like that.  So if you’re thinking of living here, beware.  They’d probably hang you for chewing gum… (which is banned in Singapore too)

Now, for the benefit of those of you who do not read the news (uninformed slobs), there was a spate of vandalism attacks on post boxes like this one around New Year’s Eve.  The culprit apparently wasn’t caught, despite the fact that he was caught on camera by a concerned citizen.

Way to go, dude.

I don’t know if this was done by him or others who are trying to imitate his act, but one thing goes to show that no matter how delinquent we are, we are still patriotic fucks who love our little island immensely.

We love Singapore!

Shucks guys, LKY would be so proud of you… (LKY = Lee Kuan Yew, Singapore’s Minister Mentor and head honcho, for the uninitiated)

I know you guys tried to repair the damage, but it looks like it got worse.  I highly doubt MITA (Ministry of (dis)Information and the Arts) sanctioned your work.  But it was a good try…

Hey, at least they were trying to exercise their creativity.  People always said we Sinkies had no creativity, right?  So there, in your face.

At least its heartening to know that there are people out there who have the guts to say FUCK YOU to the government and still have a warm attachment to your homeland.

Don’t you get that warm fuzzy feeling, Sinkies?
