A little tit-bit .. for you ..

Singapore addresses go in reverse, door number in the first line, and the unit number in the next line .. apparently so the post man will look for the door number, before knocking on the specific unit # :)

So it is, if you are in an apartment complex / office complex .. which is very norm ..

it would be like

Music World,
400 Orchard Road,
#02-43, the Towers
Singapore 238875




(disclaimer: Above address is an example, and does not in any way imply any meaning, or anything .. )

Interesting factoid for newbies - every building in Singapore has its own individual postal code.

For future reference:

Shows formats for most countries.

Funnily enough, they use "Anabel Chong" as an example for Singapore. You don't know who that is? You lived a sheltered life.

Squirrel used a BMD/girlie bar at Orchard Towers, so it must be a common theme. :)
