But I guess the salaries are also high there, that's why the living costs are expensive :)

I have to admit that the city is beautiful, modern, very clean, and everything looks neat and tidy. But what I think they lack most is sincerity. When I was in the subways, all I see is everyone who looks tired, indifferent, and a bit sad. In the first day, I thought they're tired since it's was dawn. But in the following morning, and in the lunchtime after it, and in the dawn after it, I saw the same pattern: the locals who look like they are in constant burden despite of their trendy outfits, expensive gadgets in their hands and branded bags. Of all the people in the subways, those who laugh or smile broadly are mostly tourist.

When I was in the mall, the salesgirls serve with no enthusiasm. Plain robotic, yet obviously they pretend to be nice and caring. But I have been living long enough to detect insincerity in them. You can feel when people treat you without sincerity, the body language never lies.

At the end of a week-long stay in Singapore, I couldn't wait to go home, back to my country where finding people who smile and look happy is not very difficult.

So yeah, I'm not very impressed with the city. It's overrated.

It's very different from my experience in Japan, whose people are very nice and more sincere.

I don't think I would visit the city without human again. I think it's better to spend my holidays in England, Thailand (the people are very nice), Turkey, Japan or USA, or Bali. In my opinion, all beautiful buildings and landmarks can't beat simple warm and sincere smile from human. Bali doesn't have buildings that as spectacular as Singapore's, but the people are really nice, warm and I don't mind if I have to spend the rest of my live there.

I am quite offended by this statement because I am obviously Singaporean and we don't waste our time smiling at random people for no reason because we have better things to do. The simplest answer is usually the truth. And, I honestly think everything else makes up for it. Are you sincere?
