Did I just read MOS in Singapore has closed? How sad. It's something about Singapore that social night life just doesnt cut it.
The people who have time are students who really shouldnt be boozing and dancing so much. The people who have money are professionals who either didnt have time, too tired or too goody two shoes to stay out late. Oh, not to mention the sg men get lazier and fatter with age and all they want is their good old late night Tehtarik or Kopi, or too busy helping to change diapers and feeding milk bottles.
A non SG friend recently asked me where is "happening" in Singapore. I paused - blank for the longest time. I blinked. I had a few thoughtful gulps of water. I racked my brain the hardest. Ransacked my memory bank. Thumbed through all the possible estates and venues. Came up with an answer "I have no idea. Been away too long."
Truth is, it has nothing to do with how long I have been away. And i was too embarrased to tell her there is NONE. No happening place. Food places aplenty. To have wild fun, errrr.... wrong city dude. There just isnt anything that can sustain the unusual non party city lifestyle of Singaporean.
Have u ever witness those rare crazy wild moments at Dragon-i in HK - where models looking babes in heels letting their hair loose on the sofa and throngs of men and women just walk in and out dancing as if they are on air. How many years and LKF is still standing there. Hold the dissection on the nationality and demographics first, fact is, HK will always beat us hands down in the social vibrant night clubbing life. Singapore cannot even come close even if we try.
Not convinced? Well, I guess you havent even read the papers on the Singapore F1 night race celebration party flop yet.
