    it's like a page out of the newater publicity in sg. san jose and santa clara mayors demonstrated to news media that drinking recycled sai chew is safe. it is being introduced to silicon valley drinkers as the new water and savior in the face of worsening drought conditions.

    sg newater hands down. while silicon valley's recycled water is tinged with flavors close to burritos and quesadillas, sg's newater has laksa and nasi lemak somewhere in there.

    if silicon valley cannot handle the severe drought situation, no where else can. but wait!!! there's singapore. when it comes to securing water resources, sg is the envy of the world....thanks to a visionary who saw it coming decades ago.

    I am seriously wanting war between sinkapore and neighbours; we can then see how loyal are our soldiers. Will they fight or go after the PAP government?
