Singapore: Deliberate Seamless Experience

We stayed in a simple three-storey building in Serangoon in along Lorong Gambir. The place is hosting four rooms and owned by a designer named Anders.

We stayed on a bed and breakfast that is located in the block enclosed by Upper Serangoon Viaduct, Bartley Road and Upper Paya Lebar Road. The location is a comfortable reach for Bartley and Serangoon station with a mall – the NEX Mall.

The community is filled with public housing of four-storey buildings surrounded by 3 meters of landscape. But going back to my host, there was something interesting about this city – the deliberate planning in the city level, if done comprehensively will trickle down to the local community level.

You can tell if a community was planned deliberately and a telltale sign among many is that they planned for foreigners and visitors like me riding a taxi would have a help on a seamless ride if the road “told” the driver there was a hump ahead. Meticulous because the script was adjusted to be read.

So many people take for granted small details. But definitely, ‘s leaders never let anything happen by chance. They have thought about how my taxi will pass by and foretold how it would be addressed – a seamless slow down for the weary traveller inside. By the way, did I say it was 4am?
