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.

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. 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.

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:

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.

      So much for being sedated - I repeat the tigers are not sedated and you should expect the unexpected with wild animals. (monks included)

    • A White Guy Speaking Tagalog
      By man-in-manila · Posted
      Hi I am a British guy living in Manila.  I have been learning Tagalog for about 8 months and I would say I am at the intermediate level.  I can say most things in everyday life but I have to agree that the most frustrating thing is that Filipinos almost always reply in English.  The problem with this is that it slows down your learning because one of the hardest things I have found is being able to understand Tagalog when spoken at full speed.  I think the reason for this is two-fold, firstly the Filipinos always tend to reply in English and the courses that are out there there voice actors speak quite slowly compared to normal Filipino.  Although I have to say when I first started to learn it seemed extremely fast.  What I would say is that to start learning Tagalog the progress at first is very slow but you get much much faster as time goes on because your mind really is able to understand the grammar and sentence patterns even if your learning new things.
