Any Singaporeans here???

***Home - Kit Chan***

*Affiliate of http://www.wtaworld.com/showthread.php?p=7593774 *

I've noticed quite a few around but we don't really know each other, which is a pity.



Full Name
Republic of Singapore

Area
683 sq km
264 sq miles

Population
4,000,000

Time Zone
GMT/UTC +8 (Standard Time)

Languages
English (official)
English is widespread. Children are taught in English at school but also learn their mother tongue to make sure they don't lose contact with their traditions. The only communication problem English-speakers are likely to have in Singapore is with older Singaporeans who did not learn English at school, though trying to understand the unique patois called Singlish - which uses a clipped form of English mixed with Malay and Hokkien words - can be taxing.

Malay (official)
Mostly restricted to the Malay community.

Chinese (official)
Chinese dialects, such as Hokkien, Teochew, Cantonese, Hainanese and Hakka, are still widely spoken. The government's long-standing campaign to promote Mandarin has been very successful and increasing numbers of Chinese now speak Mandarin at home.

Tamil (official)
Tamil is the main Indian language, though Malayalam and Hindi are also spoken.

Religion
42% Buddhist, 15% Muslim, 14% Christian, 9% Taoist, 4% Hindu

StarSports is showing Srichaphan vs Nieminen now. Best match of the tourney so far, apparently!

PAW isn't exactly gambling. Doesn't involve cash (virtual or otherwise).
