all right....so...my trip here in
anyhoo...before i came to
so...they say this place is the cleanest on earth. hmmm....well...the first thing i saw when i got into their airport were people vacuuming and wiping down all the fake plants. then ...outside...not one piece of gum or cigarette butt on the floor. i was like wow...it's true. but...i've been here for almost a month now and have seen many places here already.
so i was at a job last week and talk to the makeup artist and hair stylist about how strict
another thing that these to don't agree with is the penalty for littering. if you get caught littering by one of the undercover police over here you'll receive a fine of $2,000 SGD and you will have to travel to the east side of the island and help clean up for how ever many days you're sentenced to do so. the hairstylist was like "it's soo embarrassing. they make you were big, bright, and ugly reflector jumpsuit.". she's so funny.
hmmm...what else. NIGHT LIFE.
anyways...models are treated the same way here as in HK. free drinks, free entry, no waiting in line (i feel so bad when we walk past all the other people), and free model's dinner on Friday nights. ;D love that.
chicken rice. the signature dish here in
another reason why i like it here, as i said earlier, is because of my roomies. i've known some of them already from HK and the others are so easy to get along with. there's 15 of us, men and women from all over the world (mostly brazil...they're teaching me portuguesse :D ), split into two appts that are right next to each other. each appt is two stories. each has 3 bedrooms. each bedroom is big and has it's own bathroom (thank you lord). and i'm totally lucky because my roomies are soooo clean. i'm the messiest. but only in my areas. ;)
oh...another thing. here in singapore...most people dont smoke. good for them. but tell you the truth...i dont know why anyone would start. the cigarette cartons the sell are about $15 SGD each. too much money for what most people make here. another reason....the cigarette cartons all have a disquesting picture on it. the picture is to discourage people from buying it. shoot...it would for me. on the carton you'll see something along the lines of someone's rotten teeth (bleh!), someone's rotten lung, a picture of someone who's missing his lower jaw with his upper teeth exposed (double bleh!!), etc. oh yea...cigarettes are expensive here....so some people feel that they should just smuggle some in to the country. "that's a no no." one of the models knew that was against the law...but wanted to try it anyways...she got caught in the airport with just one carton in her luggage. they wouldn't let her leave (come into the country) without paying a $2,000 SGD fine. "WHOAH!" and they didn't even let her keep the cigarettes. stupid girl. why would she want to risk it. but she's lucky she had the money otherwise they would've sent her all the way home if she didn't.
oh...also. if you ever do come out here and buy some cigarettes...don't throw the cigarette butt on the ground. i think the penalty will be a lot greater then $2,000 SGD.
another thing that cannot be brought into this country....chewing gum. they don't sell it here...and they don't want anyone bringing it it. they want there sidewalks as clean as possible. the only way to get chewing gum is to know someone who smuggles it in. it's sold on the black market here. lol how sad.
anyhoo...that's all i can think of right now. i'm tired too. time for me to go and make sleepy time. ?? make sleepy time ?? see what happens when you're away from
