HAVING visited Singapore recently after many years, it reminds me how much we can learn from our neighbours. It is easy to see why they are a first-world country. The first thing you notice when you enter Singapore are the many trees by the roads. They are big mature trees not young ones, which suggest the trees are preserved, unlike here in our country. There are virtually no potholes on their roads or traffic jams during peak hours. There is no black smoke emitting from their commercial vehicles or rubbish thrown on the roadside.
