you can take a meditative walk which makes you feel you’re in a forest,
where you get off the metro to a lovely lakeside garden with pagodas and monkeys and birds and all kinds of gorgeous plants with huge leaves,
where it is so safe that bicycle theft is a red alarm,
where just about every shade of green continues to amaze you.
This is Jurong, Singapore.
