  Getting Around 



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 Women's Weekly for everyone!

Take a stroll with our photographer down to the Cavenagh Bridge along the Singapore River.

Due to bad weather the past few days, our next tour scheduled for today has been postponed. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

  The Singapore Women's Weekly is not just for women, I discovered one day when I started flipping through its pages during one of those long waits.

  Since then, I have been getting a copy for my wife, and secretly for myself too. It has lots of goodies inside, such as tear-out recipes; a handy reader-hints page in which readers share everyday remedies for that stain that wouldn't go off or keeping mashed bananas from turning brown too quickly; Chinese horoscopes to guide us through life's twists and turns; engaging celebrities' highs and lows - all presented in 130-odd pages of once-you-pick-up-you-won't-let-go stuff. The list just goes on and on.

  It's so unlike some magazines which are so thick and yet so devoid of content. In its April 2000 issue, the magazine spotlights Sakura Teng, whom everyone who has grown up in the seventies know as a household name. Sakura's spontaneity is captured in print for the reader to experience.

  At S$2.95 a copy, it's worth every cent you pay. It's available at all good bookstores and newspaper kiosks. They have got e-mail now; you can write to them at sww@acp.com.sg.

Four off-duty police officers were attacked by ten men outside a nightclub at Orchard Cineleisure early Wednesday morning.

The blood bank is running dangerously low at times. Too few people are donating blood, and too many need blood donations. What makes the problem more acute is the stringent donor-screening standards here. Only six out of ten people qualify as donors. Only 2% of the population here are blood donors, compared with 5% in developed countries, such as the United States.


Sydney: Pressure is building for Prime Minister John Howard to override mandatory jailing laws condemned by human rights groups as racists.

Ottawa: Canadian Immigration Minister Elinor Caplan has introduced a tough new law which could mean life imprisonment and a C$1 million (S$1.2 million) fine for those found guilty of smuggling illegal immigrants into Canada.
