Bright Colors of Multicultural Singapore
According to the British proverb, on the other side of the street the grass seems greener. And this is quite true, if we talk about Singapore. The colors of Singapore make a strong impression. If you look closely, in many countries, gray colors predominate. Rarely when very bright and saturated. The thing is that bright colors mix with dust in dry weather and dirt in the wet. There is a colossal difference when you see real green, red and other colors in their natural form, in absolutely pure conditions. Here, for example, a street in Singapore (photo below). This is very interesting, because, for example, in Thailand, too, is always warm, but for some reason there are no bright colors. The grass is yellow, faded, etc. And in Singapore, if it’s grass, it’s certainly bright green.
On the waterfront with the help of Marina Bay Sands (the hotel, detailed below), every night take place a fantastic colorful lazer show. Besides, in the streets there are lots of bright cars of various colors. Night colors are equally impressive.
Gardens by the Bay is a huge park area, covering 101 hectares of reclaimed land. At night, the unusual alley Supertrees Grove comes alive, delighting guests with light and colorful music shows of Garden Rapsody.
Sculpture ‘Moment’, or Momentum of the Israeli sculptor David Gerstein depicts colorful figures. As if moving in a spiral, they symbolize the constant progress and dedicated to the past and the present generations of Singaporeans. Different colors of figures represent different nationalities living in Singapore, which, despite differences, all “move in unison.”
Singapore’s status as a successful melting pot for diverse races is remarkable in that it was achieved within a short time, since the island became a republic in 1965. The government has, to a large extent, succeeded in ensuring harmony between the races by means of legislation, good public housing and education schemes, and compulsory military enlistment for males aged 18. The locals, especially among the younger population, see themselves first as Singaporeans and only secondly as Chinese, Malays, Indians or Eurasians.
