Anyone who’s been to Singapore will agree with me that for some reason this is one country that is obsessed with rules and regulations, their enforcement and having designated areas for everything. Not that this is a bad thing at all as every country has some of its own and I definitely don’t want to start about the laws of India.
However some of these I found are very strange and funny, for example –
- You can’t buy or carry chewing gum here.
- Hugging is prohibited in public spaces.
- You can’t introduce any stranger as your good friend and speak well of him. Its called abetment if he happens to be crook.
- You cannot walk about in your own house without any clothes.
- You cannot log into any unsecured wi-fi as they will term you as a hacker if you do.
- You can’t eat (especially durian) or drink in public transport.
- You can’t sleep in public spaces.
Hence I was not surprised when I came across a specific designated sign -“Flirting Point” near the Singapore Art Museum. Well, there is an officially designated space for flirting too…. 🙂
While I am sure there is a logic and reason for these rules, I still advice you all to check the list of all such rules online before you land here as I am sure hefty fines and jail visits are definitely not a part of your holiday itinerary … 🙂
