Personally what makes Singapore Singapore is the willingness to accept the fusion and express different cultures at the same time be it the environment, architectures, clothings or the people themselves. I myself am of a mix of different cultures, Japanese,Chinese and tad bit of Malay and all of them have rich cultural backgrounds which I use them as inspiration to my photos and conceptual art.
Singapore has grown to be a place where we can takes parts of different cultures and put them together to create a harmony of something even more beautiful, as they call it, a rojak,a somewhat cliche description of the mix of background in Singapore but really pretty accurate. We started off with 4 distinct ethnic group and 53years later we've progressed with much more than we started with.
