Singapore, the crane city

First time visitors to our country can be forgiven if they thought that they have entered the Crane City and not the famed Lion City.

Everywhere they go, they are likely to see cranes; and not lions. Not this type of crane.

That's a good one Chun See. There are also many pigs in Singapore beyond the wild boars in Pulau Ubin - greedy pigs, road hogs, and dirty pigs amongst others.

Yes, it's always the GDP (Greedy Dirty Pigs).

Come to my balcony and face Bukit Timah Road. Too many cranes to view, they become an eyesore to a once beautiful skyline.

Uggh... We are creating an ugly society aren't we?
