4 things I love about Singapore? Hmm.
1. The food. Seriously man, I don't understand how diets work in Singapore when you are perpetually surrounded by an amazing variety of delicious foods here. Idgaf what you all say, Asian food is the fucking best in the world; Chinese, Malay, Indian, Eurasian and especially distinctly southeast Asian foods trump over whatever fancy cuisine yall name ok. Like seriously man just the thought of chicken rice, laksa, chilli crab, bak chor mee, curry fish head, nasi lemak and curry devil can flood the room with my saliva whoa...ok enough I can't think about food this late SO SINFUL.
2. Our teeny tiny size. Which makes travelling from one end of the island (Pasir Ris) to the other (fucking Jurong) quite easy, only an hour-long train ride! Haha see we're so spoilt here we probably think an hour is an hour too long but we'd prob have to travel much longer if we lived anywhere else :/
3. Mama shops!! Well they're basically little convenience stores found at void decks of our HDB flats and have like, everything. Snacks lah, veggie lah, instant noodles lah...forget to go grocery shopping and you're stuck at home with nothing to eat? Pop down to your nearest mama shop for some eggs and spam and BAM dinner's settled, no need to bathe and change and put on make up to have dinner at the mall. But it's sad that theyre a dying breed ;(
4. Ermmm I think a lot of people will disagree but I absolutely love Singlish. It's so fucking endearing and distinctly Singaporean, like you can always pick out a singaporean from a crowd when you're overseas because their stupid Singlish accent is so bloody strong!! Obviously we need to take care as and when we use Singlish; professional environments call for professional communication skills. Also using Singlish doesn't mean you can totally discount your grammar and everything...so yeah Singlish is cool but can also cripple us if we dont know when to switch out of it...
I'm rambling now. But I love Singapore a lot. :)
