14/5 – Singapour, une escale un peu mouvementée !

Après la Malaisie, nous faisons escale quatre jours à Singapour où nous devons prendre un avion pour l’île de Bali. Nous arrivons à Singapour après  quelques heures de bus et un peu de stress au passage de la frontière car les modalités ne sont pas simples et mon anglais ne me permet pas de saisir toutes les subtilités des circuits administratifs ! Heureusement, à plusieurs reprises des Singapouriens viennent spontanément à notre aide et n’hésitent pas à nous accompagner dans les dédales des postes frontières. Nous arrivons à Singapour en fin d’après–midi sans avoir pu réserver une chambre d’hôtel : nous y avons renoncé après avoir passé plusieurs coups de fil sans succès, à chaque fois la réponse était la même : “nous sommes complets”…

Mais avant de nous lancer à la recherche d’un hébergement, il nous faut absolument pouvoir consulter un médecin : depuis deux jours, Bernard souffre d’une infection à l’oreille, infection contractée suite à notre journée de “snorkeling” (autrement dit masque et tuba) autour de l’île de Tioman. La douleur va croissant, il a un peu de fièvre…Nous trouvons un hôpital privé et après quelques problèmes administratifs, il peut enfin voir un médecin qui prescrit un premier traitement et nous donne rendez-vous deux jours plus tard si la douleur persiste.

Nos sacs sur le dos, nous partons ensuite en quête d’un logement. Là encore, nous aurons à différentes reprises l’aide de Singapouriens, et après plusieurs démarches infructueuses, nous finissons par trouver – au moins pour les deux premières nuits – une chambre dans le quartier indien de Singapour. Bon, la chambre pas terrible, l’hôtel très bruyant, mais nous avons un toît et il n’est plus temps de faire les difficiles ! En fait, nous avons eu la malchance de venir à Singapour au moment où se tenait un immense rassemblement d’un groupe industriel multinational (“Herbalife” qui vend, si nous avons bien compris des produits diététiques…), soit au total près de 20 000 personnes à loger !!! A cela vint s’ajouter une période de vacances scolaires pour plusieurs pays d’Asie. C’était bien notre veine !

DSC06430 Singapour, c’est tout à la fois un état, une île, une ville. L’habitat y est dense, la circulation intense, et différentes communautés ethniques se partagent la ville : quartiers indien, chinois…La propreté est une obsession. Savez-vous qu’à Singapour vous ne pourrez pas trouver de chewing-gums, la vente en est interdite : c’est la solution qu’ils ont trouvée en réponse  au problème posé par les chewing-gums qui souillent les pavés des rues, ou les halls des galeries marchandes ou des aéroports !!!

                             

 DSC06425Nous sommes surpris par d’imposants immeubles aux architectures variées et audacieuses. Mais de Singapour nous ne verrons pas grand-chose, car l’état de santé de Bernard ne s’améliore pas et le temps est à la pluie. Le dimanche, nous retournons  à l’hôpital pour une nouvelle consultation. Prescription d’antibiotiques cette fois. Et consultation médicale par internet auprès de Charles (le neveu de Bernard, ORL) : merci Charles, tes conseils ont été précieux et rassurants. Merci aussi à Bruno (un autre médecin de la famille).

Enfin, le lundi nous quittons Singapour sans regrets, direction BALI.

    In tonight’s Must See Monday, Eric Newton explained the patterns of the media, and how it is constantly changing. Newton explained how in every generation, there is a change in media, from magazines, to TV news, the internet, and mobile media. But these changes can also be noted all the way back to the American Revolution, when pamphlets advanced to newspapers, and so on. But the greatest question in the future of media is…where do we go from here? Newton showed the audience some great examples of “skyping” on The Jetsons and using cell phones on Star Trek. All that can be laughed at by American’s today. But Newton said that even the creator of the cell phone based his idea off of the show. So while we laugh at sci-fi movies and think of their technology as unimaginable, they are really not far off. Technology of the future may even soon be based off of ‘The Terminator’ or ‘Avatar.’ After all, Newton said the first principle in creating the future is to “think crazy.” I think the most interesting part of Newton’s presentation was the categories he made for future generations, listing all the way up to 2110. Will ideas and skills soon be programmed into our brains? Is there a possibility of a World War 4.0 Man vs. machine, or Man vs. nature? These ideas may seem a little far-off, but remember, one hundred years ago the idea of a cell phone seemed a little crazy too. Taking away from Newton’s presentation, it is easy to see where we all lie in the middle of this. As journalism students, we are the future, and it is our job to decide where the future of the media goes. The best minds did their greatest works in their 20’s, and as young adults, we hold the power in our hands for generations to come.
