Singapore humble on Google Maps!


Sometimes when you're in Singapore or have been there before you forget just how friggen small it is. While you're there it feels like you're in large city, and it's easy to forget that outside that large city, there's… nothing more! No suburbia, no endless plains, nothing.

Case in point I was looking at Google Earth. Singapore is the only city/country in the region that has had its roads and whatnot traced so far. What it shows is something that just looks spooky:


That's the entire friggen country! There are more than 4.5 million people living on that thing that's less than 50km's wide! The landmass to the left and most of the islands south of Singapore are part of Indonesia, the landmass directly above Singapore is Malaysia.
