Singapore (Part 3)

You know……Singapore is a melting pot of different Asian races and cultures. And that really is the “face” of Singapore. The largest group are the Chinese-Singaporeans followed by the Malay-Singaporeans, Indian-Singaporeans and the Eurasian-Singaporeans. A population of over five million, however 40 % of the population (as of 2009) are foreigners, students and permanent residents not included the 11 million or so transient visitors who visit Singapore annually. So a Singaporean can look Chinese, Malay, Indian or Eurasian. I had to really remember that when I first arrived in Singapore. At my workplace at the time, whenever I was chatting with a colleague I would for example ask, “So where in India are you from?” Then they would look at me with a frown and say, “I am Singaporean, Chef!”. The things we learn.

If you go walk a bouts in Singapore then remember to always bring two things with you. You may bring other things of course as you wish, but these two things you should always carry with you. 1. An umbrella. 2. A light jacket or vest. Rain it can at any moment in Singapore without warning. And when going in an out of shopping  centres or food courts you will be experiencing temperature fluctuations that can give you a nasty cold.

Although a nation with very little history there are some interesting things that you will come across whilst exploring the streets of Singapore. Shophouses and unusual architecture, plenty of shops and hawker centres and other places to consume a meal. It is what Singaporeans love doing most. Retail therapy and feeding themselves. And while feeding themselves talking about where the next meal should be consumed.
