I am on leave today. It is a nice feeling to be away from work just for a while. So I decided to meet somebody in my field for a small chat at Ang Mo Kio. I hope our meeting will turn out positively and be evaluated by the higher up on my favour. I am looking forward for the result next week.
On my way home as I was walking to the MRT station, two men whom I presume were from Africa approached me. They asked how they can get to Lavender. They explained that they asked people in the nearby bus stop but all of them never even bothered to answer and never even looked at them. After I told them what MRT line to take, the taller man asked: "maybe because we are black?" I saw the hurt in their faces. I felt their pain. I just answered that maybe it was because of the language problem.
