Jurong East Do’s
- Do eat chicken rice.
- Do have kaya (coconut-egg jam) toast at a local cafe for breakfast or afternoon tea.
- Do go to 1-Altitude. It is currently the highest open rooftop bar in the world at 64 levels high.
- Do avoid Little India late in the day on weekends; it will get very crowded. Go on a weekday or earlier in the morning. The shops offer a colourful display of goods.
- Do visit Gardens by the Bay as well as Satay by the Bay (and eat the food there ofc)
- Do try the food of the different cultures.
- Do take public transport (as in the bus and the MRT, not taxi) just to experience daily life in SÃ¢â‚¬â„¢pore.
- Do look out for tissue paper packets or umbrellas placed on the tables at a hawker centre. SÃ¢â‚¬â„¢poreans have a somewhat peculiar habit of using items such as these to Ã¢â‚¬ËœchopeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ or reserve their seats. You wouldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t want to get into an argument over this!
- Do keep to your left on the escalator. The right side is for people to walk by.
Jurong East Don’ts
- DonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t go on the Singapore Flyer (that London Eye copycat wheel thing).
- DonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t get drunk and punch a cab driver or anyone else; it is the fastest way for a Caucasian male to get his name into the newspapers, and a good caning mandated by the judge while in jail.
- DonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t try to bring in guns or drugs into SÃ¢â‚¬â„¢pore.
- DonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t be rude to people.
- DonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t litter. You never know whether the man in shirt and pants is a plainclothes National Environmental Agency (NEA) officer.
- DonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t chew gum. (Yes, itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s illegal to chew gum)
