4 people, 1 table, let’s play mahjong! Oops, I mean 1 people, 1 nation, 1 Singapore. With Singapore’s birthday right around the corner, the familiar strains of National Day songs permeate the radio waves and shopping malls – that is if you’re in Singapore. If you’re overseas, you’ll probably be missing much more than just that.
Chilli crab, chicken rice, bak kut teh, roti prata… Singaporeans - we stand together heart to heart, stomach to stomach. Our food culture might be renowned, but to us food-crazy Singaporeans, it is nothing more and nothing less than the strongest reminder of home; that 3am craving when you wake up in the middle of the night, hungry, but with limited options in a foreign country.
From our amazing food, glittering night skyline, sunny but humid weather, to the singsong intonations and chopped up sentences of Singlish, Singapore is a unique rojak of experiences. We may be a small red dot, but we sure do pack a fiery punch!
All that is Singapore cannot be encompassed within a single page, but this infographic (which you can download below) is certainly a comprehensive snapshot of our Lion City.
Welcome to our home, our sunny little island, our Singapore.
