I find this sight very unsettling. I felt I just had to take a pic so I can talk about it and find out more about the real situation in Singapore.
As I understand it, there are no homeless people in Singapore. That's what makes Singapore such a wonderful country - everyone is taken care of. The West can make a din about human rights but if they can't even give a home to their homeless, it's all empty talk; true human rights must include a home for every human being.
There is no problem of homelessness in Singapore. Vagrancy is an offence and in any event, homeless people are sure to be housed in some home by the Social Services Department.
Why then are there people who seem homeless? Granted it's not a common sight unlike in other cities where you know for a fact homelessness is a real problem and homeless people are not such a rarity that anyone would bother to take a pic of but if there are even a few homeless people, this problem should be addressed. Singapore should maintain its squeaky clean slate of being possibly the only country in the world that has no homeless people.
