Tak Giu

Singaporeans nickname their typical lad as Ah Beng (male) or Ah Lian (female). It is described as a colourful localised character that some high and mighty would snub their noses as a typical lad on the street. However, I find them to be an interesting lot of enthusiastic Singaporeans with a passion for their own sense of fashion and language. The language a typical Singaporean used to communicate with each other is Singlish, a hints of Chinese dialects, Malay and English. The use of 'lah's and 'ley's are widely used in their daily language.

Here is a typical Singaporean Short Movie I chanced upon. I think it's quite unique compared to most Short Movies I've seen. Here you can roughly understand how Singlish is being spoken in Singapore. Tak Giu is a hokkien translation for 'kick ball' (direct translation) or Football/Soccer.

Singapore Flag / Emblem

This is the Singapore National Flag, and the Singapore Official National Anthem.

The emblem specially designed for Singapore is The Merlion. It is a surreal creature of a lion head and the body of a fish. The rediscovery of Singapore was made by Prince Sang Nila Utama. Landing on the island (it was originally named Temasek) he spotted animal and learnt that this animal was a lion. Thus he decided to name the island Singa (Sanskrit name of Lion) and Pura (Sanscrit name of City).

Singapore's humble beginnings of a fishing village inspired the Singapore's Merlion mascot of the Lion head with the fish tail.

The national flower of Singapore is an orchid named Vanda Miss Joaquim.


Satay is a dish widely known in Asia, especially Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia. It is skewered sticks of marinated meat such as Chicken, Beef, Mutton and Pork. The accompaniment to Satay is the freshly diced cucumber and red onions, ketupat (rice cooked compact and cut to cubes) and a gravy for dipping made of spices and peanut.

The meat that is marinated is barbecued on an open charcoal wire. It is popular with all races in Singapore and is among a hot favourite for Singaporeans whenever they go for chalet barbecues. Sold widely also in the hotels, restaurants, food courts and coffee shop. In Singapore, City Satay is among a popular name with its wide distribution from small satay stalls to catering orders for domestics and commercial.

Rain or Shine in Singapore

It is rain or shine in Singapore. The wettest months start from October and may run it's course all the way to January and February. Rainfall may average about 175 mm to 250 mm. Temperature hovers from the temperature of 24 deg at night to about 31 deg during the day.

Singapore's humidity can be pretty high. In the day when it is hot, it is advisable to wear light cotton clothings than thick ones.

This is a favourite among so many National Day songs sung. Check it out. I hope you will enjoy it.

The People

Singapore is a melting pot in Asia. The three main races here are Chinese, Malay and Indian. Singaporeans speak a unique language, Singlish. It is a mixed of English, Malay, Chinese, maybe some words probably also can be traced to Sanskrit.

Singapore's Official Airlines is the Singapore Airlines, known for her excellent service quality and flown from Changi Airport that won the award for "Best Airport Worldwide" for 16th consecutive year (UK/Europe edition of the Business Traveller magazine).

Welcome to Alamai Oi Oi

As a resident of Singapore, this blog is dedicated to everything that is related to Singapore such as news, events, shopping, food and more. It will take time to build up this blog. I hope it proves informative to you, as a blog visitor, Singaporean, a resident in Singapore or even a tourist who is visiting Singapore.

Singapore is a country very much like a Melting Pot. It is located in Asia. The many races when you walk on the streets here are Chinese, Malay, Indians, Caucasians and more. Many expats are made up of people who come here to work and they have made Singapore their home. Some who have lived in Singapore ended up becomes citizens of Singapore because of it's efficient government, high standard of living, meritocracy and prospects. They have even infused themselves to be part of the Singapore lifestyle and adopted the many interests of Singaporean like food, sights and develop many relationship through friends, marriage and work.

Come and read up on my blog about living in Singapore and what Singapore can offer you.
