A few weeks ago, I met up with another ETH Alumni in Singapore, and we reminisced our respective times at ETH Zurich. We both had our offices at ETH Hönggerberg, where the cows passed constantly by our office windows. We both missed the smell.
Are there actually any cows in Singapore, apart from on the menus? Strolling along the streets: yes, there are cows in Singapore! To be more precise, representations of cattle are present all over the megalopolis— cattle being the general term referring to both cows and bulls. At Hönggerberg, the cows graze to produce milk for drinking, or cheese and yoghurt. In Singapore, living cows and bulls are rare: nowadays, they can only be found at the dairy farm, unfortunately currently closed due to COVID.
