Singapore is a nation of trees lovers. This observation came from my brother who visits frequently from Hong Kong. "You guys have more trees in your city than our sub-urban township." He was actually referring to the heavily vegetated areas at Marina Square below the Sheares Bridge.
Look, the gahmen actually built a crossing for a tree root who was looking for greener pasture across the other side of the drain. I don't know who invented the zebra crossing, but i am sure Singapore can lay claim to be the only nation that build root crossings.
Singapore A-sai (can)!!
