Good things take forever

I love Singapore but oh ma gah the QUEUES. Wehhhhhhh. I'm so used to my NZ get-what-I-want-when-I-need way of living. That's just not a thing here.

It's a known fact that Singaporeans are happy to queue - it generally means there's something worth waiting for at the end. Yo, not my cup of tea. What blows my mind the most is how people walk super fast, often head down on phones (efficient multi-tasking), yet they will happily wait in line for an hour to get a good cup of tea.
Wait what. 

I'm genuinely fascinated. This is not an art I have mastered yet, especially in this thirty plus degree heat.
