Good behaviour ABC

Postby SalvatorDali » Wed, 09 Jul 2008 8:41 am

Hi,

I will be moving to Singapore for few weeks later this month. I was wondering, whether there are any specific 'do's and 'not do's in terms of good behaviour and/or law? I heard something about the chewing gums, but not sure.

I apologize. I am not ignorant. I rather feel as stupid Westerner.

Thank you very much.

Kindest Regards,
Salvator

PS. I qualify to party animals. Easily. (just in case it matters).

you can chew gum, you will just find it nearly impossible to buy locally and you can bring in limited quantities for personal use only. Just don't throw it on the ground when you are finished.

Rules:

Be nice to people and they will be nice to you :)

That should really read "Be nice to people and they will take advantage of you." :)

Law: Don't have drugs on you. Ever. Death penalty here.

Behaviour: Don't judge, don't compare, and you'll be fine.

Welcome to Singapore!

Mm a theme song for KSL could be:

That's a good theme song, most old men need to take a look at themselves :)

So where are you from Salvatore? I'm gonna guess Sth America unless you're 'trickin' us with your handle. If so bring me some 'chicle' cos I'm running low on this. :)
