Estimated population of Singapore
citizens and permanent residents - 3,163,500 as at June 1998.
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.
A high-level working
committee is now looking at ways to encourage more couples to have
babies. Demographer Saw Swee Hock says that if the fertility rate
continues to stay below two, the population here, minus the foreigners,
will peak at about 3.3 million in 2025 and then begin to drop.
Singapore's water is
clean and safe to drink from the tap. There is no need to boil it.

landmark known as Tiong Bahru Bird Corner at Tiong Bahru Block
53's Wah Hin Coffeeshop is soon to go the way of the Dodo. The
Housing & Development Board (HDB) wants to redevelop the
area and has served notice on the block's occupants. The Bird
Corner is situated at the corner of Outram and Tiong Bahru
Roads, just across the road from the Institute of Health
building and the YWCA Outram Centre.
Bird Corner became a tourist attraction back in the 80s when a
Dutch journalist, Mr G. van Bladel frequented the place and
spread the word around in his newspaper columns in his native
As far as my
memory serves me, it has been around for as long as I have been
around, if not longer. I am already in my forties. Avid bird
lovers would gather at this corner every morning and engage in
chit-chat while their pet birds chirped away merrily on the
hangers. You can't fail to notice this sight when you happen
past the area.
If you have
some free time, do hop over for a last look.

19 engineers and technicians
from Singapore Airlines (SIA) fell ill from drinking contaminated water
last week at Changi Airport Terminal 1. The Environment Ministry found
on Friday that a contractor had connected the water dispenser to a
non-drinkable source when he was carrying out modification works to the
A man died after he was
attacked by a swarm of hornets on Monday. Mr Chuang Lip Keng, 51, a taxi
driver, had gone to Marina South to meet three friends for a fishing
trip when the hornets struck. He was taken to the Singapore General
Hospital where he was pronounced dead at 1.35pm. Officers from the
National Parks Board, Environment Ministry and the Land Office destroyed
two hornets' nests on forested state land at Marina South yesterday
Tokyo: Large parts of Nagoya
city in central Japan came under swirling flood waters and bullet trains
were all but paralysed as record-breaking torrential rains triggered by
powerful Typhoon Saomai wreaked havoc over much of Japan yesterday.
Taipei: More than 15% of
teenagers in Taiwan are overweight and the number of clinically obese
children is growing, according to a health report. The phenomenon, which
has sparked concern among parents and doctors alike, has led to schools
keeping obese children in after class for an extra dose of physical
exercise in a bid to improve their health.
Beijing: Investigators have
concluded that a truck explosion that killed at least 70 people in
China's restive Muslim north-west was an accident, a government
spokesman said yesterday.
Around the world
Rome: After police announced
that they would confiscate the cars of men going with prostitutes or
fine the drivers heavily, some customers have taken to bicycles to get
around the crackdown. The Rome daily, Il Messaggero, reported on Sunday
that men were pedalling up to their encounters in the pine forest near
Ostia, the capital's seaside suburb.
London: Research, reported
this week in the British Medical Association journal, Tobacco Control,
found that several 12- and 13- year-olds showed evidence of addiction
within a few days of their first cigarette. The study was conducted by
scientists at the University of Massachusetts in 1998. The experts
followed 681 teenagers aged 12 and 13 from seven schools in central
Massachusetts for a year and tracked their smoking habits. A total of 95
teens said they had started smoking occasionally - at least one
cigarette a month - during the study. The scientists found that 60, or
63%, of them had one or more symptoms of addiction.
