    Melting Pot Or Salad Bowl?

    Home Soon!

    I am a Singaporean living in Australia and I'm glad to say, if all goes well, I'll be home end of this year. Family, friends, sunny days, tall buildings, blue skies, greenery, language, slang and culture, people, and of course... Food. Glorious food. Can't wait!

    Proud Singaporean

    I am born and breed in Singapore.It is just a dot on the world map but compare to its progress and stability its outweighs its location.It is so safe and its policies is so fair.Many from other countries came either to work or study.Some even chose to stay as PRs or Citizens.

    Anyone here interested in photography?

    :D Sometimes I wish that Singapore has more beaches like those in Australia and more natural scenery but then again photography taught me to take a step back and appreciate whatever that is around me...

    I have lived out of SG

    for 11years so far. I would say, i can only be my true self when i m out of my homeland. If people are to asks me what SG is like, i can only say ~ modern in appearance but the most conservative country.

    Honestly speaking, I've spent all my life in SG,

    but I've never been proud to be a Singaporean till I hit my 20s. I guess it's something most of us in my generation grew up in - we were inculcated with the belief that we are a small nation-state and we are unable to do much. With the obsession to compete with one another in...

    Hi, I'm not Singaporean

    but there is something I wanna know about Singaporean culture. Is kissing a normal part of dating life there? I know PDA is still kinda looked down upon, but is kissing normal in all couples? Or are many Singaporeans still pretty conservative? Thanks!
