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.

Orchard Road - the shopping heart of Singapore

1965, when Singapore became a Republic, I was only seven years
old. Back then, I wore singlets; made layangs from paper and
sticks; watched - no, to put it correctly, heard programmes
being aired on television from outside some neighbour's
corridor, and went to pasar malams for some night-life.
Today, our kids enjoy colour television programmes in their
homes. Most have been to McDonald's often. Some even wear
branded clothes and accessories and carry pagers and handphones.
Many play computer games at home on their computers and go
window-shopping along Orchard Road. Every home has a telephone
and a refrigerator, not to mention a whole gamut of electric
Yes, the children of today are very lucky, and they have one man
to thank - Senior Minister Lee Kuan Yew. Without him, I daresay
there would not have been any future for this island Republic
known as Singapore. Without him, I am sure, our children would
never have enjoyed peace and tranquility or an affluent
lifestyle in Singapore.
turns 77 today and we at Getforme.com wish him Plenty More Good

A National University of
Singapore undergraduate (NUS) who went into a women's toilet and used a
digital video camera to film a student urinating was jailed for three
weeks yesterday. KOH Chit Joo, 24, who has since graduated with a degree
in civil engineering, pleaded guilty to trespassing a women's toilet and
insulting the modesty of the 21-year-old woman by intruding into her
privacy. The incident happened in a sixth- storey toilet at the NUS
Engineering faculty on 5 Nov 1999.
Abdurrahman Wahid yesterday ordered the arrest of the youngest son of

Sydney: The Olympics opened

for the 400m and 200m, set the Olympic caudron ablaze before a

Around the world
London: The British Board of
Film Classification has said they will take more of a hands-off approach
to movies and videos for viewers aged 18 and older, but will be even
stricter about violence and drugs in films for minors. They say the new
guidelines, issued on Thursday, stem from a survey of more than 3000
people from all demographic groups which showed that British adults
believe they should be allowed to watch what they want.
London: Childhood asthma is
worsened by stress, according to research published in the British
medical weekly, The Lancet. Highly stressful events, such as the
break-up of a home through divorce or the death of a grandparent,
triggered asthma attacks, which began about two weeks after the event
and persisted for several weeks, they found. A total of 90 Glasgow
children aged 6 to 13 with chronic asthma were monitored for 18 months
by a British-Finnish team led by Seija Sandberg of Helsinki University's
Hospital for Children and Adolescents.
