Heartland in the Metropolitan State - The Unheimlich

It's an amazing feeling to behold as I watched the World Cup with Sinee and my IRAS friends, in a kopitiam, in the middle of Orchard Road. The company was great - guy and girl friends hanging out together to catch a game of soccer, and the atmosphere was no less fantastic. Somehow, it didn't feel like the 'atas' Orchard Road that I know. A sense of displacement slowly took over me. It's like finding a heartland in the middle of our metropolitan centre. Pretty unreal, if you know what I mean.

I was in awe.
