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... :(

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.

    • Where to get an abortion in Thailand?
      By lostinisaan · Posted
       f it has to be, please try to contact a nurse from the local hospital. Don"t let a pseudo doc do a questionable job.    And there're plenty of them. Best of luck. Or become daddy and give the kid to an orphanage.       When I was young I said yes to two abortions in an European country, which was highly illegal at this time.    Considering that my gf had sex with plenty GI's, which was finally the reason that we drove to Holland where they did it.  Would I be in the same situation now, I'd never go for an abortion again. At the second time she's already in the third month. It might be my Karma that my Thai wife couldn't have another baby.     Think twice, as there plenty of people who wish to have children and would adopt a child. 
    • Cambodia how's it compare with rest of South East Asia
      By METHOS · Posted
      ​Surely, you agree, that, if some people took the time to educate themselves by reading about Cambodia's history, the genocide, the horrific acts of war, the age demographics and lacking education etc., then they might begin to understand the current state of social disparity and be less inclined to make such wide, sweeping generalizations. Unless, for you, understanding is just naturally absorbed through the sunlight or something. Do you describe mentally disabled people as the most stupid kind of people? Hopefully not...because you are educated and understand that there is a valid reason for their differences.
    • Discovered our father has secret family in Laos after he passed away
      By Curious · Posted
      Our father has recently passed away. He was born in Laos but is an Australian citizen. He had a business in Vientiene and has been traveling back and forth for 5 years. Our mother didn't join him as she worked in Aus.   he recently died and we have discovered he has a partner (potentially wife) and a young child. we are concerned that this woman will try and come after the family's assets here in Australia and have discovered secret bank accounts where money we thought was invested in the business has been transferred to Laos bank accounts.  Where does our Mum stand with the law? Does this woman have any legal rights to his business assets in Laos or family assets in Australia?

      Well no, as the OP points out most of the stuff looks good superficially, i.e. the cable is just a few strands of copper thick, it's a three pin plugs, but are only wired for live and neutral. This applies especially to the computers section at Big-C.
