Pasir Ris Beach -- sad and dirty
Pasir Ris Beach, like many other Singapore locations, seemed to be degrading. I've been to the Marina Barrage last week, a lot of displays are not working. At Liang Court, there are stairwells that lead to dead end and they have no light at all. There are a lot of new buildings and attractions in Singapore, but the old ones do not seemed to be maintained.
Pasir Ris Beach is in disarray. Rows of coconuts are growing into trees, trash and rubbish everywhere, the smell of sewage and decomposition (no bodies found). It is not a pleasant beach to be at.
From far, things may look fine, but when you walk near the sand, a man informed me not to even wash my feet in the sea water.
I've seen several dead fishes, plastic bottles and a lot of sea weed, however, there was a man with a fishing rod as well. I've been to only one beach this year in Singapore and was shocked at the state of things here.
Why are they constantly renovating or building new things if they have no intention to maintain them?
