:: i am afraid ::

i get paranoid in london...with the security people everywhere, the sound of sirens from the police patrol cars, the delays and cancellations of trains, flights and buses.

"When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life;
for there is in London all that life can afford."from Boswell's Life of Johnson
(Dr Samuel Johnson)

it is a vibrant city? you bet....sometimes i wonder if i am in karachi or mumbay or shanghai.

in singapore, we promote good english campaign - the desire to speak to be understood.

here, you just need to ask native speakers to repeat because you can't listen to their accents and/or slangs clearly.

i just don't like it here.
