SingaporePerhaps it is high time everybody learn to speak Singlish, a combination of Singaporean expressions and English. To be technical about it, Singlish is a mixture of English, Cantonese, Hookien, Malay and Tamil, used by many in Singapore.

While some may frown on it as a crime against grammar, Singlish could be the most sought-after language in the world today.

Shining Singapore

Today, not only is the island country a modern city-state, it has become one of the world’s premier financial hubs. This is the reason that it has attracted many persons of interest to its fold, which is a much cooler alternative to other cities. An example of this is the 33-year-old Facebook co-founder, Eduardo Saverin, who has renounced his American citizenship for Singaporean.

Money could be one great reason one should consider living in Singapore over other cities. While manufacturing is not as great in Singapore as in other cities, construction is at an all-time high, allowing firms with construction or access equipment hire like to thrive in a city half the size of Los Angeles. In fact, Singapore ranks highest in the AAA ratings, with its bonds surpassing even that of giant Australia.

Super-Celebration in the Offing

The Lion City is celebrating its 50th anniversary as an independent nation, sending all good tidings to every corner of the world like its popular dialect, Singlish. New York may be New York, but Singapore has come of age. Expect fireworks and every little thing associated with celebration to come alive. Dancing and celebrating, wining and dining, and lots of ‘lah’ added at the end of English-sounding sentences.

That should also mean more business activity. As renovations and decorations are put in place, demand other mobility businesses should rise. Singapore continually reclaims and maximizes its small area, so look for high-rise condos and office towers.

Singapore is super-ready, and so must you be. For everyone who wants to get a piece of this island nation, learning Singlish is indeed a timely choice.
