We may have been in the third trimester for a little while now, but today we reached the third quarter mark, the start of Week 30 of 40. When you think about it, that makes its 9 & 1/3 months, not nine months like people suggests.
Today on my way to work I saw my first bendy bus near Raffles Hotel, what special about that you may ask, well nothing really, I just thought to myself, I haven’t see any here before!
I had to get some money out of an ATM today and it got me thinking, why don’t they have $20 notes here, I miss not having $20’s. On a (another) side issue I’ve noticed that polymer notes are starting to creep in here, I’ve only noticed polymer $2 & $10. I’ve never had a polymer $5 or $50; I’ve only see $100 from a distance (similar colour to the $10) and I’ve never seen the $500, $1000 or $10,000 notes. I keep trying to get a $10,000 note out of the ATM but the dang thing keeps telling me I don’t have sufficient funds, whatever that means!
For those that are interested Singapore currency consist of 5c, 10c, 20c, 50c & $1 coins and $2, $5, $50, $100, $500, $1000 & $10,000 notes. As noted above my attempts to confirm that the larger notes exist have met with disagreements between myself and those dang hole in the wall ATM’s thingies.
