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:

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.

    • Foreigner, have Lao girlfriend and daughter. Worried about the Lao law.
      By chchong · Posted
      Hello, I'm a Swedish citizen having a Lao girlfriend and daughter. Now, we are planing for our future togheter. But have many concerns.  I have not been back to Laos from the time I meet my girlfriend. By that time, for many reasons we decided to live seperate life's. And I was not in Laos when our daughter was born.  This mean, I do not have my name on my daughters birth certificate. I have been told by the Swedish embasssy, I will need to go to court in Laos to get an official court decision on my status of father to my daughter. As this will be needed somehow if I would like to apply for citizenship for my daugther.  But actually more importent. I am very worried about the law forbidding foreigner to have relationship with Lao citizen. I'm quite afraid of going there for this reason. From what I have read, you can be fined for this. But even jailed and deported!  As I have a daughter. How serious is this? Me and my girlfriend are not married.  Even if I do not cross the line this time, do not spend nights with my girlfriend or anything sexual. Can the police arrest me for having a daughter?   Thank you for sharing your experience.
    • Why did Singaporeans vote for the workers' party?
      By Bluecat · Posted
      Because they're tired of voting for the same party for the last 50 years? A party that lives in the past when it was and is still OK to jail the opposition. If they're that good, why do they actually need to sue and jail  their critics?

    • Thai court voids 'secured' foreigner leases
      By Bluecat · Posted
      It is not outrageous at all, it is the law. It is not a law I agree with, for the reasons Morlar mentioned, but it is the law. And well,quite a few foreigners in Thailand think the Thai law does not apply to them. It does.
    • Thai court voids 'secured' foreigner leases
      By Morlar · Posted
      I'm not sure it can be described as outrageous. Legal trickery by foreigners attempting to outsmart Thai law in order to 'own' property or land might arguably be interpreted as outrageous by Thai people (even though it's a mix of Thai and foreign developers taking advantage of the general naïveté of foreigners). Don't get me wrong, I sure don't like the lack of reciprocity. My Thai family could legally own land and property in my country, even before they became British Citizens. Yet, I can't own land or property in Thailand and my path to Thai Citizenship is sure much longer than their's to British Citizenship. Hardly equitable. . . but outrageous? Certainly not, just naive investors believing they could beat the law.
