Here are my reasons for saying there are free lunches available in this my lovely "Little Red Dot" Island if you look closely enough. In our Public Libraries: There are thousands of books and audio-visual items which you can borrow. Our libraries house a huge collection of books with daily addition of new arrivals - on my recent visits I manage to borrow four new arrivals. Everyday you can see the young and old enjoying the air-conditioning comfort of the reading rooms and lounge areas. In our Parks and Stadiums: You see people enjoying their morning/evening walks, jogs and "qi-gong" exercises. In our iconic MacRitchie Reservoir and Botanic Gardens the beautiful sceneries and natural ambience are there for your enjoyment. When the sun sets the lovers whisper sweet-nothings and subsume into the natural environment. In the Espanade Concert Hall/Grounds: There is a monthly free concert dubbed "The Beautiful Sunday" concert in the Concert Hall - the genre of music offerred range from Jazz/Symphonic Pop to Chinese Orchestral music. That's not all, there are fringe acts/performances in the Concourse/Outdoor Theatre areas. Buses/Taxis: Yes, you can hitch free rides from our friendly uncles and aunties who man such public transport. But you must be honest and explain your predicament -you may be facing a genuine "emergency" situation or you have just lost your wallet or belongings. Our drivers will empathise with genuine requests but not cheats.
HERE MY FAMILY AND I WISH YOU A BLESSED CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
