Just wanted to share a forum I came across. It is dedicated to working/ studying/ living in Singapore. Do check it out, if you are thinking of shifting to Singapore.

I'd be willing to bet this forum you are 'sharing' is your own, right? Why not just come out and say it? Don't be ashamed to plug your site brother man.

By the way what's so great about the forum? I just checked it out and I don't see a whole lot of action there.

But I just thought of a question maybe you can answer for me. I heard you can't chew gum in singapore is that right? That's kinda a stiff rule.

Goodnight

Haven't been to this site for a while.
To answer your first reply, no, it's not my site. A friend of mine is one of the site administrators. However, I have nothing to do with the site.
I never said that it's great. Useful perhaps, great? Definitely no.
You have to post questions. The forum administrators are quite helpful in answering questions.

Why are you asking me the question about chewing gum? Did you post this question in the forum I recommended?
Anyway, to answer your question, it is illegal to sell chewing gum in Singapore. However, according to my colleague, it is NOT an offense to chew gum. But it IS an offense to litter (throwing/ sticking your used gum anywhere but the rubbish bins). Many Singaporeans buy chewing gum from abroad and chew it in Singapore.

Hey is it true you can get the death penalty in Singapore for doing weed? Not that I ever would do something like that outside of Amsterdam, being the law-abiding, authority-respecting, grammar-loving teacher that I am...

You won't get the death penalty in Singapore for smoking weed, but if u possess too much weed, u may get it. I'm not sure what's the min. for the death penalty though. Best to just stay away from drugs.

Remember, heroes don't do drugs
