City Quirks: The Fine City?

The T-shirt says it all :). I vaguely remember being warned about fines for littering on our first trip to Singapore (15 years back). To be honest, I haven't really paid attention to these fine boards, which supposedly can be seen everywhere. And I probably would not have registered this fact but for the T-shirt.

Of course, my friend pointed out that one can hardly see any cops policing on the road (I wonder how they go around fining people) and people follow rules implicitly (except may be not so much for jay walking :)).

Hi Ms.N!
Sorry I couldn’t visit you for the last two weeks! I’m trying to catch-up and see the wonders you have around!

Amazing T-shirt; great word game... I always wondered how could it be so fine to live under the constant threat of fines... ;) But it seems to work. A contradiction in terms...

Meanwhile, one of the most beautiful Forts in India waits you and your comments at Blogtrotter: – The Amber Fort! Enjoy and have a great weekend!
