I had the opportunity to visit Singapore recently and wanted to share some quick thoughts.
New Thomson–East Coast MRT line
This isn’t completed yet but some stations appear to be ready. I didn’t manage to take that route but it’s still exciting to see a new line.
Mask down people
Most people are gradually leaving their masks behind to get a chance of normalcy returning. COVID-19 is still a concern albeit much smaller. It is looking like it is becoming a managed risk at this point.
Safety at 5 AM in the morning
Being able to walk around at 5 AM in the morning is pretty cool. It’s much cooler since the sun hasn’t risen yet. The streets are cool and some stalls in the hawker center is setting up.
Singapore feels hotter
I am not sure if it is just me forgetting how hot it was but I can feel the temperature heating up. Thanks to the cover-ways, there is a more humane way of navigating around. The afternoon heat is unbearable and my plan of a 1.2 km walk was abandoned.
