Hint: My poem takes reference from the white sign in this photo.

The most notorious ban in Singapore is on selling chewing gum. I was pretty upset about that as a kid but it hardly bothers me now. The latest ban that took effect this month: public drinking between 10.30pm and 7am. This website is pretty detailed on the many, many other things one can be punished for.

    Hey, looks liek you have your own little Prohibition

  11. mel Says:

    @jazzfeathers UH HUH! But to take note it’s not so much restaurants and bars and sippies at home, but rather buying alcohol from 7-Elevens and drinking under the stars with plastic bags. BUT STILL.

    @tarkabarka Dirt and train doors stick to it. Yes really.

    @cherdo I think it does give some insight into a country’s culture/political climate 🙂
