Thanks to my friend Sarawakiana for posting a similar theme. When I went to Singapore last July, I saw this and was glad I had material to post for my Save the world.
When I lived in Singapore for 16 years, I lived in a low rise apartment. We chose a low rise instead of a high rise, because I didn't want to depend on ELECTRICITY and the ELEVATOR. You can't see the ELEVATOR from the outside, but there are two.
Just as I was coming out of the ELEVATOR at 100 Nanyang Meadows, on 2 occasions, I saw two gentlemen holding books. I observed them. This gentleman told me it was their own kind of library. Anyone can leave books and take them for reading. There is no policing. I was very impressed.
Having lived in such a "gentleman" professor environment, I can only conjecture that that there has to be mutual trust. What a great lesson they were showing their children.
I recount and blogged an occasion where my books walked when I put a box outside to raise funds for my Charity for the Deaf in Kenya. There were some very "Ungentleman" behavior.
So where is the ELEVATOR? I was in it taking the photo, trying to be discrete. May be he will read this post. Good job the residences of Nanyang Meadows Block 100.
