Dear Readers, Christmas time in Singapore is always a time when I wonder if Singapore is indeed over-populated. Either that or there is really nothing much to do here and everyone just crams into Orchard Road because it is....well....”Town”. Before I digress any further. I was waiting at a certain bus stop in Singapore outside a certain army camp when I saw a couple, shamelessly showing their public disply of affection in full view of the already crammed bus stop. Hugging, kissing plus playfully wrestling (yes.....wrestling) oblivious to the fact that there were at least thirty eyes upon them. Unfortunately or maybe spanking fortunately, the got on the same bus as me and managed to get a seat unlike me. The public display of affection continued albeit this time in front of more people in the already crammed bus. Then suddenly amidst the public display of affection, the guy with, his hand which was cuddling his girlfriend, started spanking the side of her butt several times and started laughing. I could feel a majority of the people on the bus freeze and the girl, giving a pout, pushed the guy's hand away and rubbed her butt and said, “I didn't do anything wrong why did you hit me?” (It was said in mandarin for those who were wondering.) And the guy still laughing replied, “Why need a reason meh?”
Goodness gracious.........maybe I was wrong to say we Singaporeans were that conservative.
