Yes, this picture was taken in Singapore!

Everywhere you go in Singapore, you cannot help taking your hat off to their government - Changi Airport is truly the best in the world; so is their MRT, bus service, public housing, etc. The city state seems so wealthy and well-managed. But beyond the awe-inspiring skylines, something is disturbing: Elderly people cleaning the toilets, serving in the food courts, etc. I took this picture while I was enjoying a great meal of crab in the Arab precinct. I also recalled running into a man in tatters eating his meal in one of the viaducts at Nicole Highway. You can’t blame the government though; there will always be some sad cases here and there.
