It means… Onward Singapore
There so much things to do in Singapore which even the some locals will not go for beyond this point and you may find out why? If not because of this man, I am not sure what or where or how it would be like Singapore today.
Well, Singapore is a sovereign city- state and island country in Southeast Asia. It lies off the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula and is 137 Kilometers north of the equator.
Country Code: +65
Currency: Singapore Dollar
2017 President: Expected to be is Encik Yusof Ishak
Prime Minister: Lee Hsien Loong
Official Languages: English, Malay, Tamil and Standard Mandarin.
Today, the main spoken language of Singapore is English. Though main languages of Singapore are English, Malay ( Bahasa Melayu), Chinese (Mandarin), and Tamil. But seems that those are just becoming the secondary.
In my opinion, there are so many race Living in Singapore. One of those who are the most popular are Chinese, The Malay and Indian.. others living here like me are filipinos, Filipinos who are doing businesses here such as property agents, setting up filipino cuisines.
There are world famous Italian like Jaime in Vivo city Singapore where Harbour Front is.
The Austrian Sausage WUERSTELSTAND in China Town.
Erich the owner makes his own sausages to sell according to him. He and my husband are from the same country . One of his best selling sausages is Bratwurst.
Dont forget to go around the area of China town as you may find some souvenir to buy. You have to visit the temple too in this area called
The Sri Mariamman Temple – this is in Chinatown area.
In Singapore, I find that is the best place to buy branded stuff like hand bags, best jewelries design can be found in Orchard Area.
Orchard road – Paragon in the old days
In 1997, I came to Singapore, young and was looking for opportunity.
I have seen how Singapore have grown tremendously.
That time when I arrived here, Mr Goh was the President.
As Singapore was growing, I go along with the flow.
I believed that many people would have the same opportunity as I have.
I have learnt the Singaporean way of living, the multicultural, food, lifestyles and even I have the Singlish words (English +Singapore English)
Singapore and Singaporean are very unique on its own.
