Singapore is a unique city that has influences from both the East and West.

To foreigners, we speak in a hybrid of different languages that sounds like an entire language of its own and we have a distinct culture that cannot be replicated anywhere else in the world. Sometimes, we have habits and behaviours that foreigners cannot comprehend. But that’s because We Are Singapore and we are unique like that.

This National Day, let us celebrate the 10 Things You Can Find Only In Singapore.
