Galeej Times

Had gone to watch Mozhi in a theater called Plaza here in Singapore on Wednesday night. The locality, the complex where the theater was situated in were so galeej that we decided against it. enna dhAn chennai la idha vida local-Ana theaters kut poirundhAlum, family-a poNum nA yOsikka vEndiyirukku. Singapore sucks.

adhanAle, thiruttu DVD is the only option.


  • I have heard that some areas in Sing are Galeej, but not to this extent. Hmmm. The only time I visited was when I had a twelve hour halt and went out for a few hours on a temp visa of some sort. Is that Galeej area Indian/Tamil poplasun area ?

  • bnb,
    This area (Lavender) was galeej in a different way. "sidey", "shady" enbArgaL Angilathil :)
    Theater irundha vaLagathula koottamE illa...
    Later, i came to know that the nearby areas were sivappu viLakku districts and a lot of Tamil laborers lived in this area.
    Anywhere you find Tamilians and its galeej.. especially for a woman it should be irritating and uncomfortable..

  • oh Plaza theater avalo galeeja? Tekka marketa vidava? but 'Singapore Sucks'nnu solradhu konjam over. Tamil/Bangladeshi makkal adhigam irukkum edam mattum dhaan galeej. i.e Tekka, Little India & Lavender. apram yellam aaha, oho'nnu solra Orchard Towers bayangara galeej. Residential areas like Tampines, Woodlands, Newton r all quite clean, safe and have a peaceful atmosphere.
    btw bala, whr do u stay?

  • RK,
    Singapore overall-a paatha a very clean, a very safe city with excellent infrastructure. Granted. When i said Singapore sucks, it was a crib about not being able to watch a Tamil flick in a land where Tamil is an official language, not able to have anything vegetarian anywhere other than a joint in Little India, etc.. Biscothu matters, so to speak :)
    I live in Tampines. You from S'pore?

  • yes, very much. naanum Tampines dhaan - street 11. block 139. and u?

    yeah its hard to get veggie food here. but if u say this to someone back in india, they wont belive, cos they've heard that singapore has lots of indian restaurants.

    food courts r all dirty n they stink. but at least dosai kedaikkum.
