Singapore Skyline

Don’t get me wrong, Singapore is a great place to be.

If you have status,
and money,
and a well paying job,
maybe a trust fund hiding somewhere,
a profitable business to take over.

I didn’t say it was an easy place to be.

I’m just saying the view is pretty sweet.


On mornings I forget to prep my breakfast, I queue up at the Chinese bread shop.

I always tell myself I should get something different. Maybe something with no overly processed meat or a tuna bun.

I repeat this to myself the whole 10+ people who are queuing in front of me and ordering basically everything I’m not.

It’s finally my turn. The lady asks me what I want. I pause; hesitate.

And order the same damn thing I’ve been eating for the past one and a half years since I’d started working in Raffles Place
