Moving on up... to the East Side

Actually, I've abandoned my de-luxe apartment in the sky. If you don't know Singapore society, it's still very rare for someone to move out post-college: not until marriage, really. So it was a big and wonderfully liberating step. But for personal reasons I'm moving back home for a bit. Still miss the place though. Since I was an urban economist by training, I'm struck by how rarely one of the most fundamental tenets of urban economics is followed here compared to the US: people live nowhere near work. So great to be able to walk to work, to live somewhere that was a mix of working, living, and recreational areas. Very Richard Florida.
