Mystery of the disappearing taxi

Ask any driver which vehicles are the most irritating on the road of Singapore and they would most likely reply, "Taxi lor!". With the abundance of taxis in Singapore, making illegal stops and last minute turns, why is it simply impossible to hail one when it's raining or during peak hours?

Dear all, please don't spoil market and order a cab everything it rains or during peak hours ok?

My old skool Singapore

For the purpose of work, I sometimes need to hunt for images of the old Singapore. With the nation's birthday coming soon, it is time to show my patriotic side (not that I have any other sides for my country :P) and introduce everyone to a fantastic website for you to reminise or simply pass time while waiting for the clock to strike 6.

Ladies and gentlemen, at the National Archive search portal, you can find many a gems like these (WARNING! Those not from my generation will be scratching heads in bewilderment):

Toa Payoh MRT was once sparkling new

You know her occupation from her clothing*

This is what comes to mind when you think of monorail and "cable-ru car"

Enjoy your random searches for this and that of Singapore!

*Missy lor!
