Formula One fever is sweeping Singapore. A bit. I turns out that in a couple of weeks they're going to have a night Grand Prix through the streets there, which sounds kind of fun. This is why you see this kind of thing when ambling down the street.
In the evening, the bar near this display was full of a number of very attractive young ladies who had obviously been stood up by their boyfriends, as they were still hanging around waiting for them. Is this connected?
