Who enjoys photography in cloudy, overcast conditions?

Experts on the internet often tell us how wonderful overcast conditions are for photography, comparing the sky to a cosmic soft box. Here in tropical, humid Singapore dull and drab conditions are common, as they are in my home town, London. Often the light seems completely dead, with all colour washed out, even of flowers, no matter how much you crank up the vibrance and saturation in Lightroom, or play with the white balance.

Where am I going wrong? Who enjoys photography when the sun has gone on strike?
