Life in Singapore : Part II
After a few months had passed into our new life in Singapore, the true heart and character of the country slowly began to reveal itself as we spent more and more time encountering its rich diversity of cultures. It was pleasing to see the intermingling of the Malay , Chinese and Indian cultures which make up Singapore's interesting cultural and national make-up, along with the colourful influences of its large international community.
If you happen to take the bus or train around town, you may be lucky enough to hear all of Singapore's four official languages being used all at once! Should you happen to be in Kampong Glam, shopping for fabric or textiles, you may get to see (and hear) the Malay culture in full swing.
After shopping, a quick trip to Singapore's historic Chinatown in the bustling city center may give you a crash course in Mandarin and have you craving to sample the many mouthwatering food options on offer. For an introduction to a good curry, the Tamil language and Hindu temples, the buzzing streets of Little India will leave you with plenty of colourful places to explore.
