Sparkling Singapore

Leaving Changi Airport, I taxied along a six, sometimes eight lane highway where not a scrap of rubbish could be seen amongst the lush trees and flowering shrubs. This was my seventh Singapore visit and I had always enjoyed the cleanliness and orderliness of the city after visiting other Asian destinations. But is Singapore still maintaining those high standards?
