    Singapore is a great country to live in but there were a few things that would've made my life a little easier, had I known them beforehand. I'm hoping this video helps some people make the transition a little easier.


    Hi there random person reading further into the description than most people. How's it going?
    If you're curious, I'm a performer from Australia, getting paid to dress up in costume and travel the world. I make videos about expat living, travel, performing and other fun stuff. If you like any of the above, I upload a few times a week so might I suggest the subscribe button?

If you are a single male you will be pleasantly surprised as I was. The local Singaporean women are mostly very slim, seriously beautiful & friendly, easy to talk to and are totally into western guys. I feel very sorry for most western single female expats as they struggle to get any male attention and find it very lonely in Singapore. Good pay, great nightlife, great travel breaks, a great city to work in. That said Hong Kong is better...Lan Kwai Fong is jumping at the weekends and beer is much cheaper in Hong Kong and the local girls can party hard too.

Singapore is the only place I’ve been in Asia where people were often rude, although the food was incredible. Loved the flowers and vegetation as well. Doubt I would go back, unless asked by a family member or significant other.

As a man, I often think that the caning that is imposed in Singapore as a deterrent to sex crime (and other crimes as well) is probably a very effective way of promoting safety and respect for women. Do you feel this way or do you think that the punishment is too severe and maybe should be modified or discontinued?

Things to take note before coming to Singapore 1) singaporeans are rude 2) singaporeans are dumb 3) Singaporeans are proud 4) singaporeans think that they are superior to other nations 5) anything is illegal in Singapore 6) everyone hate each other If you want to say go back to my country, I don't belong to any country

FYI, most of us speak "Singlish" among ourselves. But when we speak to foreigners, we tend to communicate better. About the accent, you cant run awsy from it unless you are raised in London. Even in UK, you have the Cockney accent. I am sure to those speaking Queen's English, the American accent needs a bit of getting used to. But b/c the US overtook the UK to become a global power after WW2, the American accent has come to be regarded as another universal standard of English pronunciation.

Hey Hannah, thanks for this video! It is very educational and informative! As an American, I've always been interested in visiting Singapore because I understand it is a very beautiful, stable, and safe country. By the way, I love that Aussie accent of yours! You're adorable and entertaining! I look forward to seeing more of your videos! You just earned a new subscriber! :)
