Tada! That means it’s your turn to listen (read: read) about the many places my immediate bucket list. (Is immediate bucket list an oxymoron? Is the fact that I don’t care an oxymoron? Whatever.) I figure maybe if I hash them out in writing, in public, it’ll help me narrow down the scope for our next trip or two. And maybe you’ll weigh in and tell me this place is great, or that place is overrated, or you really shouldn’t go to such and such during the dead of winter. And I’ll listen to everything, except for the last one, cause guys, I’m cheap and love me some offseason nonsense.
So, what’s floating around on the list these days? I’m going straight to Singapore (Not literally. In this blog. Right now.), largely because I found a nice Creative Commons image to use at the top of this here post. Hooray!
Singapore has landed on our list for myriad reasons, not least among which is its allegedly diverse and fabulous food scene. Bonus points for the eponymous Singapore Sling (and no, purists, I don’t give a hoot whether or not locals drink it and whether or not it costs like $30 bucks at Raffles. It’s pink. It wins.) And speaking of fabulous and diverse, Singapore has a multi-ethnic, multi-religious, and generally multi-multi population, which sounds pretty rad to a gal like me.
On the other side is the fact that Singapore is incredibly clean, efficient, and safe. While this sounds like a superbonus, the combined facts of the terrifyingly stringent punishments for littering, etc, and George’s status as a Human Pigpen (You know! From Peanuts! Guys!) leave me a little leery. Like, I kinda don’t wanna like have to create an international stir when I try to bail G out of jail due to the fact that he just emits pennies, pencaps, and lint from each and every pocket. So there’s that.
But there’s also the fact that Singapore’s official slogan is Your Singapore (So good! It rhymes! And it’s mine!) and it’s got interesting architecture, a bustling nightlife, and an fairly unique designation as a city-state.
So onto the list it goes! I’ll just have to buy George some pocketless pants first.
