Singapore is a diverse city filled with many contrasts. Largely because of its colonial past the nation’s first language is English, but most residents are of Malaysian, Chinese and Indian decent and do not speak English in their homes. So unfortunately many speak their official language a little poorly. But it’s a great city for English speakers to visit because it’s easy to get around. Whether you go for high end shopping or a low budget cultural experience, Singapore has you covered. As you peruse the city you’ll stumble on an amazing variety of things, with that here are some funny Singapore pictures of some strange things we discovered.
There is an incredibly smelly fruit that’s prevalent in Southeast Asia called Durian (kinda like a rotten grape). This place let’s us know it’s ok to smoke, but not to eat that fruit on the premises.
There are a few things wrong here- just a wee one being that “Ireland’s proverb” implies this is the national proverb (it isn’t even an Irish proverb at all). And clearly potato should come before marriage.
I actually thought it was above average, but perhaps that’s not as catchy.
Speaking of potatoes! I definitely would have checked these out if I wasn’t lactose intolerant. Great initiative 7-11 Singapore! Perhaps Singapore needs their own Irish proverb regarding potatoes.
Every country surprises you with something. Immediately upon entering Singapore airport you are given an option to purchase duty free for cheaper than what you will pay in the city. Alcohol is expensive in Singapore so buy ahead, especially if you’re planning a bender…And apparently 3 packs of beer are popular. Strange and practical at the same time.
