    Greetings from Singapore!

    Greetings from the tiny island nation of Singapore!

    I'm a transport planner in a private firm in Singapore and my affiliations to the US are...
    1. I'm a Boilermaker (Purdue University)
    2. Used to work in Indianapolis
    3. Aspire to get into the UC Berkeley City Planning Graduate program

    I actually graduated with a BSc in Civil Engineering but have been involved in transport planning and traffic engineering for 5 years already (since 2000). In this rather short span, I've done projects in the US, Singapore, Vietnam, Jakarta, Bangkok, Beijing, Dubai, etc. The list keeps growing... but I wish to learn more from others as much as I would like to share my experience too. Ultimately, I wanna gain more insight into the overall master planning profession and be the transport expert.

    I'm a triathlete and a freelance photographer in my leisure time and I take part in multisport races regularly just so that I can keep myself motivated to stay fit and healthy. I also love nature.

    cheers to all in the profession!

    Welcome from the Hoosier State,
    already in and staying in the Central Daylight Time Zone.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    Greetings....

    From just north of Miami, Florida......and waiting for the Cyclone to pass!
    Tell us more about our Blade Runner future (aka Singapore ) Is it still against the law to own a vehicle more than 10 years old? Have they priced vehicles completely out of the city for all but the richest of the rich? Any new mass transit ideas or plans that are of interest?

    A relative of mine married a woman from Singapore, so I get bits and pieces of info now and then..... Is there really a Tiger painted under one of the tables at the Raffles??

    "We do not need any other Tutankhamun's tomb with all its treasures. We need context. We need understanding. We need knowledge of historical events to tie them together. We don't know much. Of course we know a lot, but it is context that's missing, not treasures." - Werner Herzog, in Archaeology, March/April 2011

    Welcome from NW Ohio. One (1) of my business partners is a Boilermaker, and I, too, will not hold that against you.

    Enjoy your walks through Cyburbia. Nice people reside here and they are filled with a wealth of good planning and built environment information.

    BTW.....Go Blue !!!
