When I think of autumn in Singapore I think of burning hell money and moon cakes... Could never quite understand how the mid-autumn festival could start when it was still summer though. :roll:

Singapore 'winter' occurs when either the southern or northern hemispheres experiences winter during the solstices in December and June. The laughable severity of Singapore's 'winters' is equal despite what a little armchair meteorology might suggest, after taking landmass distributions into account.

The fact that there is more ocean in the southern hemisphere, means that the southern hemisphere's winter is Singapore's wet season. And arguably that Singapore's most pleasant 'winter' corresponds to the northern hemisphere's summer, in and around June.

As a technical aside, Singapore actually has 8 seasons; however you'd be very hard pressed to tell them apart.
