This one is a easy one.

Do flush the public toilet, otherwise you'll get fined
Don't do anything that could endanger the perfect harmony in which people live, i.e. watering your plants, you could get mosquitoes, chewing gum, you'll make the MRT stop, ...
Well, I keep the rest for the next posts... :D

You can but you'll get fined.  :D
That is, if somebody is following you to the toilets and disclosing to the authorities your un-Singaporean behaviour... :(

I'm confused.  :D You'll get fined if you do and fined if you don't?

I meant, you can, not doing it.  :D

What if u deny the charge? Would they have to show the evidence in court. :D

I'd hate to work in a Singaporean evidence storage room.

There are several automatic flush dunnies (yes, I'm Australian) in Singapore.

When you sit on the pot a little red laser light connection is completed with a sensor in the wall above the flush button. When you stand to pull your pants up the connection is broken and the toilet will flush in about 30 seconds.

I found this out by accident in the Plaza Singapura when I leaned over to get my wallet out of my back pocket and almost jumped through the roof when a shot of cold water licked my scrotum! :flowers:

At least the cold water in Singapore isn't really cold. Imagine doing it in Hobart on a cold winter night.

Your avatar is hypnotising, TizMe.

I think it's Japanese "model" Reon Kadena.

Is she saying "boiled beef"?   :flowers:

I read 'boil them balls'.

Yes, she is Reon Kadena, but I don't know what she is saying.

Another dark spot in my mind has been enlightened.One of the most provocative avatars i've ever seen.It can be used in countries with low birthrate to heat things up a bit.It may even help frigid pandas.
