“This give you strong sex,” said the grinning vendor with just two front teeth.
He held up a large jar. A coiled snake was in it.
I picked up the jar and wondered. Singapore isn’t just a modern city-state. It’s a futuristic image of what the world might become.
So it’s strange that in some colorful corners of this Jetsons-like city, pickled snakes might top Viagra.
This was one of my first impressions of Singapore when I moved there in 2003.
