"Malaysia Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad and the Sultan of Johor are seen in a blue Proton Saga... "When asked whether there is any tension with the sultan, Dr Mahathir said: “No, I don’t see anything because I went to see him and he drove me to the airport. I don’t want to comment on the sultans because if I say anything that is not good then it’s not nice because he is the sultan”"

Singapore in National Geographic

"I think that somehow, we learn who we really are and then live with that decision." - Eleanor Roosevelt


HDB - public housing in Singapore - National Geographic Photo Contest 2011:

"HDB flats. The name - uninspired, uninviting.

Their promise of the joy that comes with owning your own home stolen by its resemblence to a cage; metal grilles on every window and the front door. Why are we so afraid in a city with no crime?

Jostling for space in a congested city. Behind every other window the fading memories of the old generation who grew up in some village in rural China or India. A home they never saw again."
