Creeks of Singapore

I was walking along the street and I noticed the creek.  The creek is so clean, you can even do some fishing...other people do this but I'm not sure if it's allowed here. If I really want to catch fishes, I'll go to the Fishing Pond.

So I remembered when I was in my country.  I took the photo of one of the creeks in Sto. Nino, Paranaque, Philippines.  This is what I see creeks in my country.  I'm ashamed of what other people did with our creeks and that does not spare me.  I admit..I throw trash everywhere and was not aware that the creeks are already full with irresponsible doings.

Creeks in Singapore
My first time to see a creek in Singapore is at Toa Payoh.  I was shocked to see the cleanliness of it. The Tilapia fishes are enjoying their swim with the trash-free water.

This time, I took some photos to share how clean the creeks of Singapore are...
All creeks are concrete to eliminate soil erosion

Notice the grass and the fence? 

This is a small canal and I can't see any trash,
even one cigarette butt

Look at this photo and compare to
above photos in the Philippines 

This is where I jog and the creek is at my right.

Please let me know if you found any trash in this photo
Indeed, Singapore government is doing really well, they implement the law with an iron fist "Kamay na BAKAL". If you break it, the only help you can have is your attorney.
