This one is a easy one.

Do flush the public toilet, otherwise you'll get fined
Don't do anything that could endanger the perfect harmony in which people live, i.e. watering your plants, you could get mosquitoes, chewing gum, you'll make the MRT stop, ...
Well, I keep the rest for the next posts... :D

You can but you'll get fined. :D
That is, if somebody is following you to the toilets and disclosing to the authorities your un-Singaporean behaviour... :(

You can but you'll get fined.


I'm confused. :D You'll get fined if you do and fined if you don't?

What if u deny the charge? Would they have to show the evidence in court. :D

I'd hate to work in a Singaporean evidence storage room.

There are several automatic flush dunnies (yes, I'm Australian) in Singapore.

When you sit on the pot a little red laser light connection is completed with a sensor in the wall above the flush button. When you stand to pull your pants up the connection is broken and the toilet will flush in about 30 seconds.

I found this out by accident in the Plaza Singapura when I leaned over to get my wallet out of my back pocket and almost jumped through the roof when a shot of cold water licked my scrotum! :flowers:

At least the cold water in Singapore isn't really cold. Imagine doing it in Hobart on a cold winter night.

Your avatar is hypnotising, TizMe.

I think it's Japanese "model" Reon Kadena.

Is she saying "boiled beef"? :flowers:

Yes, she is Reon Kadena, but I don't know what she is saying.

Another dark spot in my mind has been enlightened.One of the most provocative avatars i've ever seen.It can be used in countries with low birthrate to heat things up a bit.It may even help frigid pandas.

    • In love with a Vietnamese girl

      We're talking about a Vietnamese girl who 'picked you up' in a bar in Singapore? Start thinking with the big head not the little one!

    • Relationship advice regarding a girl from Vietnam
      By DaveMesa · Posted
      Yeah, Matlad. Netzipper is right. Dial it back when you're talking to her. Don't go all Romeo on her, right out of the gate. She's already shown you that she likes you. She WILL say yes if you ask her out. Just be respectful and gentlemanly, and don't fawn all over her. And on the gift side, I agree, not yet. But Asian girls really like things they can keep, more than flowers/candy. They're sentimental and will treasure a silly little stuffed animal because you gave it to them, if they like you.
    • UK Election 2015
      By Morlar · Posted
      I just finished watching Panorama's four part series 'What Britain Wants' in a marathon non stop viewing. It's available on the iPlayer for the rest of the year. Each episode was interesting in it's own way and did a good job of portraying the hardships evident in modern Britain. . . Mariella Frostrup revisiting her first flat to find the current occupiers paid 10 times what she paid for it 25 year ago sure highlights the difficulties faced by young families. This election must have even the bookies clutching at straws. I don't want to see the UK go to the relative extremes envisioned by Farage but the problem with UKIP is that their assessment of the EU's affect on British society is essentially correct.
    • Shipping a motorcycle to Vietnam
      By Larry1982 · Posted
      I don't think you'll be able to bring it in if it exceeds the engine displacement regulations. Even if you could import it, the taxes could be through the roof, as eddievietnam mentioned. These regulations do change sometimes, so it might be worth it to contact a shipper and see what the current laws are. I've used {snip} before and they were really knowledgable about the laws, ports and taxes of shipping to Vietnam. You might call and ask them for up to date info, I'm sure they'd be happy to help.
