A significant dot.

I'm always quite amazed whenever Singapore appears in the articles that I have to read for class. Some of the topics that our tiny red dot appears in are:

- 'Singapore girl, you're a great way to fly': Women as cultural symbols of the nation
- Migration: The migration of female labour to care for the elderly in our ageing population
- Newly-Industrialised Country: Rapid growth from fishing village to economy of financial services and skyrocketing GDP growth thanks to import substitution industrialisation

I have to admit the last topic is the one most discussed in several courses, to the point of nausea. There are other aspects to our country too, y'know!
