Singapore confuses me.  It’s without a doubt a country in Asia.  But it also seems to be a city and a county.  Its cleanliness is far above par to its neighboring countries and the architecture is comparable to Dubai.

So, what is confusing me?

Singapore has gained a good amount of attention from the uniqueness of their various laws and punishments.  I knew even as a young teen, don’t chew gum if you ever go to Singapore.”  I stored that in the vault, thinking I would never need to access it again.  Little did I know…

THESE LAWS CONFUSE ME. WHY WERE THEY MADE?

  • Eating raw fish while lecturing on science is illegal.
  • It is against the law to speak to a donkey in Chinese.
  • It is illegal to urinate in an elevator.
  • It’s illegal to carry a Bible or to talk to anyone about Jesus Christ.
  • The sale of chewing gum is prohibited.
  • WINNER FOR MOST MIND-BOGGLING – It is illegal to walk around in your own house naked.
  • WINNER FOR BEST LAW EVER – If you are convicted of littering three times, you will have to clean the streets on Sundays with a bib on saying,” I am a litterer.” This will then be broadcasted on the local news.

I hope that last one is serious.

With such specific laws, I don’t understand how, walking through Chinatown I saw the following things I would never expect of Singapore:DSC_6992 DSC_6987 DSC_6985 DSC_6984
