Singapore has been described as a clean and green city, and we have received compliments from numerous visitors. Our well-maintained gardens and parks give us pleasant surroundings and fresh air to enjoy.

But I have noticed pigeons flying around at some food centres, and this is one area where we need to improve cleanliness. I felt uncomfortable to have the birds flying over my head and the food that I had ordered.

I have seen some vendors put up netting to stop the pigeons from flying into their cooking areas.

But I hope more can be done to tackle this issue so that food centres keep to our high standards of cleanliness.
