Buyers, Beware?

“The year is 2214, and your computer’s dusty hard drive has just resurfaced at an antique store. Write a note to the curious buyer explaining what he or she will find there.”

Dear Buyer,

Congratulations! You have chanced upon a crystal ball. This will unlock the life and times of people in the year 2014! You will need to find a working personal computer known as Apple (it was a brand of computer and not a fruit). It will be able to read this device called an external hard disk which contains valuable data. Once you are able to connect it, you will access all the data which will unveil all the news and stories about what was happening at that time in Singapore.

You will also get to see photos about the country such as how the people, the streets, buildings, transportation and fashion looked like. It will reveal what the people usually do as there will be letters and articles from friends and family including photographic evidence of what they were up to. For example, places they travelled to, how they spend their time with family and friends like having meals at various eateries and cafes, how they celebrate various festivals and occasions like birthdays, weddings and parties.

All these will help you unveil the true picture and account of what really happened in 2014. If it was something you already know from the accounts available to you as historical records and information now, then you are living in a country that does not need to hide anything from you, which is a good sign. I wish you all the best.
