We're smack in the middle of General Election fever (although Osama's death is taking some of the heat off that), but wow, exciting times. After Polling Day on May 7, we could wake up in a different Singapore**.
As such, work has been killing me, and I spend a lot of time sloshing around in muddy fields visiting rallies and political walkabouts. I have reached a stage of unprecedented sartorial consistency: no other shoes but Chucks for the 15th day running. They're getting so worn (just four years old), they'll have to be falling off my feet for me to get rid of them.
Okay. Back. To. Work.
**I won't bore you guys with the details, but Singapore is parliamentary democracy (modelled after the British system), and this time, 2.3 million people are eligible to vote. 200,000 of us are first-time voters, partly because Singapore has long been dominated by one party and there has never been this many seats contested. Woot.
