    'Rojak' (Malaysian and Singaporean spelling) is a traditional fruit and vegetable salad dish commonly found in Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore.
    The term "Rojak" is Malay for mixture.

    In Malaysia and Singapore, the term "rojak" is also used as a colloquial expression for an eclectic mix, in particular as a word describing the multi-ethnic character of Malaysian and Singaporean society.

    So here I am, in this tropical mixing bowl, of 704 km2 trying to find something to do with the camera I'm holding. :)
    Here goes....

    There are 'no' beggars here. The needy are encouraged to be a street vendor of some sort. Some do busking, others like this gentleman here sell tissues at a charitable price. No beggars?? Well, the non conforming ones get picked up and sent to homes.....
