Recycled WHAT?!

A tiny nation like Singapore doesn't have a whole lot of natural resources.

They call the northern part of Singapore "The Heartlands", but you won't find orchards or grazing cattle. You just see more HDB flats than office towers.

Singapore even has to import its water. But it is doing its best to become more self-sufficient in that area.

There is some desalination going on, but more interesting is this concept of "New Water."

It's a huge misnomer, because it is actually "VERY MUCH USED water." Here is Rohaizad enjoying a bottle of former sewage.

I found that it tastes fine, but I tried not to think about it too much while I was drinking.
