Choose life. (Deuteronomy 30:19)

It's a souvenir VHS for tourists to Singapore from about 15 years ago.

Starting at the only part of the island that I've actually been to, (the airport) this delightful hour takes-in tons of the surrounding tourist-attractions, and really painted a good picture of Singapore as a great colourful holiday destination. And, unlike almost everything made today, it was on untreated 4:3 fullscreen videotape, so we got to see it all clearly! :)

The soundtrack featured an echoey lady talking as though she had actually been on holiday here, and that she herself had shot all this footage. She was very likable and convincing, although the end-credits seemed to be picking a fight with that idea.

Maybe I'll go back there again one day, and this time do a little more than just ride on the monorail...
