I mean really, I can’t believe that today is already 4th day of APYLS!!
Today’s theme was “National Development,” so we went to Land Transport
Authority and Public Utilities Board. At Land Transport Authority, we learned
that Singapore is working hard to make transportation system effective and efficient.
Due to its hard work, Singapore is developing as a country where it has less
traffic or trouble. These days, population and car users are increasing, so
Singapore and also other countries need better transportation system.
That is why place like Land Transport Authority is important.
In Seoul, Korea, it also has good transportation system, which are
developing more and more by expanding a route for subways.
I was impressed how land Transport Authority was
designed to explain to people the importance of their work.
Next, we visited PUB. I learned how Singapore is getting water. Singapore is now
working hard to produce NEWater by purifying many times. It was a new experience
of tasting NEWater for the first time. Since water is so important to us, I also
got a time to think about that students like us have to develop and create more
system to produce clean water. In my world history class last year, I heard
that works that deals with water is becoming more important. So, PUB is one of great
examples of works that I mentioned.
By seeing all these, I learned more about Singapore.
