What to bring to Singapore?

Postby TheRealStig » Tue, 05 Jul 2011 4:21 am

hi! I'll be moving to Singapore next week. I was wondering what should I pack for Singapore? And other things I should keep in mind. (Like for visa, all I need is the IPA letter print out, right?)

I'll be moving from India if it matters.

Packed yourself and leave all the spices and curries behind. :shock: :shock:

Clothes. And if you're female, then stock up on the foundation garments.
For those who fight for it, life has a flavor the sheltered will never know.

Hmm, so only clothes?

What happens about food? If I would need to cook then I might need to pack utensils, right?

You eat it

Are you seriously looking for confirmation that to cook you need some utensils so it might be a good idea to bring some? Will your next question be to ask if you need a bed, considering you like to sleep?

Undoubtably this one has masters

Dude, the questions simply mean: 1. Does one generally cook or eats out? Hawker food for instance. 2. This one just intents to ask if one cooks then is it worth packing utensils or should one buy them in Singapore.

You may be funny (at least in your head) but not helpful this time.

Well, people generally eat out. But if you like to cook, then stuff like pressure cookers etc is available in Mustafa. However, if you intend to use a mixer grinder (for chutneys etc) u might want to carry it from India. Stuff like belan and roti tawa and also kadai (if u dont want a non stick version), my suggestion would be you buy those from India.

Yes, Master that is most definitely true. To the very end of India between the rocks and under the caves :lol: :lol:

How does it matter what other people do, just because others eat in the hawker centre doesn't mean you have to too, it's your choice

2. This one just intents to ask if one cooks then is it worth packing utensils or should one buy them in Singapore.


I would have thought this is obvious, if you have utensils and think you might use them then bring them, what would be the point in throwing them away only to buy new ones in Singapore? If you don't cook and don't intend to, then obviously you don't need any utensils

You may be funny (at least in your head) but not helpful this time.


I might not be funny, but I have common sense which goes a long way
