Try Durian When in season the spiky shell strong smelling king of fruits is sold in Chinatown and Geylang. The D24 Mao Shan Wang (Cat Mountain King) and XO varieties are the most expensive and popular. Prices can range from as low as 5 per fruit for the lowest grade to 18 per kg for Mao Shan Wang so confirm the price beforehand to avoid being overcharged. 2. Eat Ice Cream With Bread Get an ice cream sandwich from a mobile ice-cream vendor for about 1. Try a local flavour like red bean sweet corn mango or durian which is not as pungent as the fruit itself or the standard chocolate vanilla strawberry or mint flavours. The ice cream is served on a slice of soft rainbow bread. Fold the bread and eat it like a hot dog 3. Drink Coffee At Local Coffee Shop Get your caffeine fix at a local coffee shop or kopitiam instead of a western coffee chain. Every neighbourhood has a kopitiam which serves kopi (coffee with condensed milk) kopi-si (coffee with evaporated milk and sugar) kopi-o (coffee with sugar but without milk) kopi-si-kosong (coffee with evaporated milk and no sugar) and kopi-siu dai (coffee with condensed milk and less sugar) priced from 80 cents per cup. 4. Speak Singlish Impress the locals by speaking Singlish Singapore s non-stardard variety of English mixed with various local languages and dialects. It has a unique grammatical structure and a single sentence can comprise English Malay and Hokkien words. Here are a few popular Singlish phrases Lah (lah) Used at the end of sentences for emphasis I don t like chocolate lah Paiseh (pie-say) Hokkien term for embarassing or shy So paiseh I forgot your name. Shiok (shee-oak) Fantastic or awesome That char kway teow was so shiok Walao (wah-lau) Hokkien term for annoyance disbelief exasperation frustration or surprise Walao how can she just cut the queue 5. Reserve A Seat With An Object Reserve or chope a seat with a packet of tissue paper umbrella water bottle book or bag at a hawker centre or food court. It is common practice to reserve a seat this way especially during peak hours so look out for these items and do the same to chope your place before buying your food. 8 Photo Singapore Tourism Board Singapore-Inspired Creations Bring home a slice of Singapore.
