Views of the Singapore Living, mostly in highrise flats

Nearly 9 out of 10 Singaporeans lived in public housing flats. Singaporeans are very lucky to get subsidised housing when they live near their parents.

The goverment ensures that every Singaporean is not deprived of a roof on their head. The government builds various housing to meet the different lifestyles of the Singaporean. From a low cost one room flat, studio apartments for elderly, 2 rooms, 3 rooms, 4 rooms, 5 rooms flats to the high end executive mansionettes (double storey executive apartments) and the executive condominiums (enclosed with facilities).

Nasi Lemak

Nasi Lemak is a Singaporean favourite. It can be eaten as breakfast, lunch, dinner and even supper. It is inexpensive for ones sold in Banana Leaf packets. In the old kampung days, this dish is home-made and wrapped at home and sold by housewives for extra pocket money.

It's rice is flavoured with coconut milk and steamed. It is enjoyed by many races in Singapore. The sambal (chilly) is an important part in a Nasi Lemak. The Sambal adds the oomph to the dish. An average Nasi Lemak bound in banana leaf, costs anything from S$1.00 to $2.50, depending on the main dish. A packet of Nasi Lemak usually has coconut-flavoured rice, small fried fish, a slice of scrambled eggs, some slices of cucumber, some ikan billis (some fried with peanuts) and the not to be missed sambal.

Speediest Bra Stripper

Singapore drew flak for this FHM contest, to see which one of the women can strip their bras off at lightning speed. Instead of promoting women as who they are, beauty from the inside, these women seemed to be making a fool of themselves. How can they allow such low grade events go public? What do you think?
