    I am a Singapore Citizen.

    Those of you want to travel here for refreshing feel free too. It's a safe country. To me as a local here, two things i don't like are the cost of living here is too high and the education system. S**ks
    If i were you guys, i avoid doing business or living at countries like this.
    Since i am a local, i have to live with it. If i got offer to live other countries like in the europe , of course i will consider because i like cold countries. Singapore is hot max.

    We have 4 official languages. There is no such thing as "official official"… Our national language is Bahasa Melayu. Our academic language is English, which makes our common language amongst all the languages we speak to be English.

    Singlish is a disgrace to English, and the weather is extremely, I mean extremely hot and humid. Anything that's above 60 degree (fahrenheit) weather is hot to me, and Singapore's weather is always in the high 80s!

    I can’t stress enough how bad you should dress appropriately in Singapore!!!! Wear shorts, tshirts and light footwear!!!! Locals may wear jeans with the bottoms rolled up to let air in, however they will be doing a lot less walking than the average tourist. As soon as you start walking outside you sweat a lot, then you walk into freezing airconditioning and that sweat turns into cold water which chills you to your bones. Therefore you need to reduce the sweat in the first place!!!! Don’t wear jeans!!!!!

    Chewing gum is not illegal in Singapore. Unless you intend to sell them, you can chew all the gum you want. Just don't litter the gum which of course can be punished by fines.

    – Only Singaporeans can do kiasu moves, if you try to do it you will be frowned upon by the locals.
    – Singaporeans has their eyes on everybody in their presence, a small commotion and scandalous scene from people will quickly go viral on social media and youtube.

    Bubble gum or chewing gum is not illegal, just don't let police saw it and make sure the spill it at a tissue and throw it in the rubbish bin.

    I just got back from Singapore, Lovely country. It is not as hot as I anticipated. It was quite pleasant. The subway is awesome and everywhere is very safe. I did jaywalk on empty streets so it wasn't terribly strict, but eating food on the subway is a big no no. Ubers are also very good.

    An inhuman society that is condemned by the international community for Human Rights crimes through the Torture (canings) beatings of males. These blatant violations of international norms and standards are the epitome of barbarity by the regime that runs the government of Singapore. TRAVEL WARNINGS should be issued against Singapore, Syria, and North Korea.

    G'day mate, next time you do Singapore (I asked you on your last live feed this week) next year is to include alternates to the taxis such as Uber and the local favourite "Grab". Keep up the u-beaut work and ignore the haters! Cheers.

    Uh This is not a place I would ever travel to, and why anyone would want to come to this third world city run by a repressive regime is a mystery to me. I will go elsewhere Thank You.

    Behind the Mask…Here are a load of bad things you never knew about Singapore, which hides the truth form its own people, and the world through manipulation of data.. Human Rights Abuse Country – do not support or promote it, and please help spread the truth. HUMAN RIGHTS WATCH ORGANISATION SAYS; Singapore heightened restrictions on and harassment of activists and bloggers over the past year, Human Rights Watch said today in its World Report 2017.

    In the 687-page World Report, its 27th edition, Human Rights Watch reviews human rights practices in more than 90 countries. In his introductory essay, Executive Director Kenneth Roth writes that a new generation of authoritarian populists seeks to overturn the concept of human rights protections, treating rights as an impediment to the majority will. For those who feel left behind by the global economy and increasingly fear violent crime, civil society groups, the media, and the public have key roles to play in reaffirming the values on which rights-respecting democracy has been built.

    “Singapore’s authoritarian grip tightened on alternative social and political views in 2016,” said Phil Robertson, deputy Asia director at Human Rights Watch. “As the second anniversary of Lee Kuan Yew’s death approaches, his son, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, is imposing a mix of absolute political control and repression of dissenting voices that was his father’s hallmark.”

    Singaporean authorities regularly used vague and overly broad legal provisions on public order, morality, security, and racial and religious harmony to sharply limit what its citizens can express, and actively harass and prosecute outspoken activists and bloggers.

    Public demonstrations and other assemblies remained severely limited, with a permit required for any assembly outside the so-called “Speakers Corner” of Hong Lim Park. In late October, the Ministry of Home Affairs announced new regulations governing events in the park. One of the new regulations provides that any company that is not registered in Singapore and does not have a majority of Singapore citizens on its board is now required to have a permit to sponsor events in the park. The new rule appears to be aimed at discouraging foreign companies from supporting the annual LGBT pride event, the Pink Dot festival, which last year was sponsored by companies such as Google, Barclays, JP Morgan, Goldman Sachs, Bloomberg, Twitter, Apple, and Facebook.

    In May 2016, police searched the homes of outspoken activists Roy Ngerng and Teo Soh Lung, seizing phones and computers, and subjecting both to hours of interrogation. The two were investigated for allegedly violating an election law restricting political campaigning during a “cooling off” period by making posts on their personal Facebook pages, despite the fact that the law specifically exempts from the ban the posting of personal political views.

    In June, a court sentenced 17-year-old blogger Amos Yee to six weeks in prison after convicting him of “wounding religious feelings” in posts on social media. Earlier in the year, Yang Kaiheng and Ai Takagi, the two founders of online news portal The Real Singapore, were sentenced to prison after pleading guilty to sedition for publishing articles with allegedly “anti-foreign” content.

    In August, the government passed the Administration of Justice (Protection) Act, which provides penalties of up to three years in prison for several forms of contempt of court. The law includes the archaic offense of “scandalizing the judiciary,” which Singapore’s government has repeatedly used to penalize anyone who dared criticize the judiciary or judicial decisions.

    Singapore uses the Internal Security Act (ISA) and Criminal Law (Temporary Provisions) Act to arrest and administratively detain persons for virtually unlimited periods without charge or judicial review. On October 6, the Ministry of Home Affairs stated that 17 individuals were currently detained under the ISA, and an additional 25 had been issued with restraining orders under the law. There is little publicly available information about those detained or the basis for their detentions.

    Singapore retains the death penalty, which is mandated for many drug offenses and certain other crimes. Use of corporal punishment is also very common. For medically fit males ages 16 to 50, caning is mandatory as an additional punishment for a range of crimes, including drug trafficking, violent crimes, and some immigration offenses.

    Foreign migrant workers in Singapore are subject to labor abuses and exploitation through debt bondage to recruitment agents, non-payment of wages, restrictions on movement, confiscation of passports, and sometimes physical and sexual abuse. In March, a Singapore couple was convicted of starving their domestic worker, who lost more than 20 kilograms during her 15 months of employment.

    “Singapore’s citizens face an ongoing regimen of explicit and implicit repression, justified in the name of economic growth and social harmony, and are forced to self-censor or face arrest,” Robertson said. “This narrowing space for free expression undermines Singapore’s claim to be a global center for commerce and communication.”

    Sometimes rain is our worst enemy, cuz short showers brings the heat off the ground into the air, making it even hotter. 😦 Tap water is drinkable, if in dire situations, but there's pretty much water coolers (where you can drink from) everywhere near tourists spots 😉 Dont forget to bring a bottle of water around.

  15. Attilio Rapisarda says:

    Omg again with this chewing-gum bullshit. IT IS NOT ILLEGAL TO BRING IT FOR YOUR OWN CHEWING. It's just illegal to IMPORT for selling. Please, stop bullshitting people about how strict the Country is and how many fines you can be given. I've been living here for 10 years and I've never been fined once (and I do A LOT of jay-walking). Also…taxis? Really? Get a Uber.
