A little red tape with your tea?

MDH has been awarded his Singaporean Permanent Residency - whoopdedoo - which means that he gets a paycut, a pension fund, a permit that allows him to travel in and out of Singapore whenever he wants, and a nice new blue identity card to carry around.

I must say that our Singaporean bureaucracy isn't as insulting or as expensive as British bureaucracy, but it did irritate me a little bit that we had to visit the Immigration and Registration centre three times before all the paperwork was completed. It cost MDH nearly two days of his precious annual leave.

On the bright side, I did manage to finish reading Coehlo's The Alchemist.
