    Convenience

    It is very convenient to go around Singapore.  Just hop on a subway or a bus as the transportation network is spread out to all corners of the island.

    Instead of driving 5 hours and getting annoyed at traffic, the quickest and most comfortable way to travel from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore is by plane.  The flight duration is about an hour.  There are also many flights from Singapore to Penang.

    Hair loss is very common and as a matter of fact, everyone will experience hair loss at some point in their lives.  Do you know that celebrities also wear hair pieces?  Some celebrities love wigs because it is extremely common for them to change their hairstyles on a regular basis, from super short pixie style to wild shades.  Many of them do this because rather than chopping off their hair as and when they like and perhaps regret about it later, they turn to wigs as a temporary solution.  Excessive coloring will also damage the hair so wearing wigs is the best option. Others wear wigs because they are dealing with hair loss.  Several famous actors and actresses have worn wigs in popular films or on television shows.
