First list — more to come lah.
Singaporeans are normal — they break rules and disregard silly signs
Buses have signs warning commuters not to bring their durians on board.
They do laugh at themselves while being discreet enough not to risk going too public
Some court areas (like those in Geylang at evening) have the same welcoming camaraderie found in Australian pubs. (Am sometimes shouted a free beer by locals.)
Food is inexpensive and even their sweets taste healthy. (Easy for me to avoid sweets, like corn-flavoured ice-cream.)
Beer and wine are obscenely expensive. (Helps me reduce intake.)
I hate line dancing and gambling for myself but I love to see Singaporeans line dancing en masse in main streets and gambling in side streets.
The mosaic of Buddhists, Taoists, Christians, Muslims, Hindus all doing their things side by side.
Public holidays for each of the faiths, with room still left over for Labour/May Day.
And lion dancers doing business with the hawkers and others.
