    Planning for the future is taken serious in Singapore, otherwise a small country with no resources doesn't stand a chance in the worldwide competition for talents and markets:

        I need to add to my previous post, that I find the energetic and forward thinking planning of large Asian cities quite amazing, interesting and engaging.

        They think, plan, and build on a whole another level than how we do things here in for example Norway.

        There is so much energy and creativity... both in construction and in capability. The youth appears to have a large saying in how the future is formed, and not left only to those of "higher age".

        In large Asian cities like Hong Kong and Singapore, they build some pretty amazing futuristic tall-rises (for example) while we here in Norway have been discussing whether to build a footbridge across a main road at port of Trondheim for several months. We are stopped dead in the tracks by politicians, an opinionated population, and regulatory restrictions.

          As those who have been to Singapore know, it is a place for foodies. Everything from simple hawker food to fine dining can be found 24/7.
          Indian Fine Dining is a relatively new concept though:

            The first operational autonomous bus in regular service will be operating in Singapore next year:

            It will be on a short run and within the perimeters of Nanyang Technological University, but it is a sign of what to come.

                Singapore politics may be boring, but it is well planned and not based on infighting, insults and lies.
                Transition to a new Prime Minister has been a hot button discussion point for a couple of years already and several potential candidates have been identified by the media but not acknowledged by the PM, or by PAP. It is not likely to take place for some years yet, but in Singapore they like to be well prepared for any eventualities:

                    The old Singapore is getting attention,especially the old "Black & White" houses from colonial days:

                    PS> We stayed in one in Alexandra Park from 1975 -80. It used to be officer's quarters for Westminster Regiment and is still the same.
