You can’t see my apartment in this shot, but those groovy art deco buildings you see in the background are the suburb I live in (Tiong Bahru) in Singapore.

Small flat-bed “golf carts” whiz around the neighbourhood back alleys collecting trash and the gardening and street cleaning is all still by hand.
