How does Singapore look like from above?

July 11th, 2008 by Ah Doe

Supposingly, I am not allowed to take photograph from the airplane, and especially when it is still flying…


I was flying from Kuching to Johor Bahru alone. Nothing to do, nothing to eat because I was taking the cheap budget airline. While wondering when I can see the horn-bill land again, I secretly took this photo.

Sarawak, or I should say that the whole Borneo Island is densely covered with dark green tropical forest, crawled with several muddy rivers and filled with thick clouds in its sky. Humid and wet, this island naturally became a good place to farm tropical forests and animals.

Around 45 minutes later, I saw an island country which is packed with buildings.

What a huge contrast! A primitive land and a tiny little island filled with so many people, so many buildings. Suddenly in my mind, I think that living in big cities is kinda stressful and suffocating. Although the aerial view of Singapore has its charm, I am somehow turned off by it.

Think of it positively, Singapore is still very well organized though.

So that’s it, I am heading towards Singapore with a new job, new life. I am a little sad when I think that I can’t even go home often once I start this routine work, even if the plane ride is only 1 hour…
