I think you'd be paranoid to worry about the day-to-day quality of SG water. I drink it from the tap. I also have a Brita filter jug in which I keep a litre or two of filtered water: it is cheaper and easier than carrying home bottles on mineral water from the shops. Also better for making black tea without the limescale scum/rings you get in your cup/mug.

Couldn't help it. At Jakarta, drinking tap water is a fatal mistake. That's why, drinking boiled water is like a habit to me :P

Agreed. As noted, I spent 12 years all over the archipelago and I wouldn't trust the water anywhere. In fact, I don't trust the ice cubes either. I've worked as far west as Aceh, as far east as Irian Jaya, north to Ternate and south to Timor. and a whole lot of please between them.
