  4D/Toto/Score

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.

    vPost.com.sg gives you a free lifetime e-mail account courtesy of Singapore Post, our very own post office in Singapore.

   With this account, you can not only send & receive e-mails but also receive your bills, letters, statements and reminders electronically so there's no need to worry about lost mail. What's more - you can pay your bills online when you receive them electronically so you won't need to go to the post office for those transactions anymore.

   If you are worried that your messages may get lost, fret not. You will continue to receive your statements and reminders by post. The electronic version is an added benefit. vPost also lets you apply for GIRO-On-Demand for automatic payment of your bills. However, this is different from GIRO service in that it lets you decide how much to pay and when to pay. And you only need to sign a one-time GIRO-On-Demand application form to enjoy the service.

    To register, all you need is to key in your NRIC (I guess they are targeting Singaporeans) number and personal particulars online. But, it's not one of those instant accounts you have got used to getting on the Internet. You will have to wait a week for their approval. I guess they just want to make sure you are who you say you are. You can't use the account to view your family member's bills, but you can use it to pay their bills if you know their bill account numbers and you have already signed up for the GIRO-On-Demand.
