Estimated population of Singapore citizens and permanent residents - 3,163,500 as at June 1998.

Chinese                     77%

Malays                      14%

Indians                     7.6%

Other ethnic groups 1.4%

Working Language: English

Other official languages: Mandarin, Malay & Tamil.

Planners expect the population of Singapore to reach 5.5 million by 2040 or 2050, taking into account an expected increase in the number of foreigners working here. From just 3 million in 1990, the number has swelled to 3.9 million today, including 700 000 foreigners.

Singapore's water is clean and safe to drink from the tap. There is no need to boil it.

  The Singapore Food Festival officially opened at Parco Bugis Junction in the evening of 31 Mar 2000. Yesterday, food stalls set up by various restaurants and hotels in Singapore in the Hylam and Malay Streets at Parco enticed large crowds with delicious food. Grand City Restaurant's pastry, Loy Kee Chicken Rice together with Raffles Smoked Duck were great favourites. Today, the celebration at Parco continues and more people are expected to make their way there.

  The month-long festival has highlights, such as Film al Fresco, at Fort Canning Park from 7 - 9 Apr 2000. This event features food, live performances, and movies outdoors.

  Over three evenings, you can catch six movies, such as ERIN BROCKOVICH (starring Julia Roberts); performances by Australian pop group FRUIT; and French CELTIC ATTITUDE, a colourful feast of food and drinks, food demonstrations, and good old-fashioned fun.

  The World Gourmet Summit will be held from 10 - 15 Apr 2000 in association with the food festival.

  Why not take time out to savour the food and the mood of the festival.
