Connected cleaners

If you’ve ever wondered if Singapore was really such a hi-tech connected country with hi-tech connected people, wonder no further.

Apart from making my head too big for my t-shirts, this gives me the option of participating in this meme by similarly tagging five other people. If, and only if, you’ve been tagged and would like to share the love, here are the rules: You have to link back to the original post that started this meme. Tag five other bloggers ‘that make you think’, and explain why (although I’d rather prefer letting my ‘taggees’ own words do the work). (You can use this logo/sticker in your post, but that’s optional, and therefore not a rule and that’s why I’m putting it in brackets). Five blogs that make me …
