The food of Singapore is a real mix of influences, which reflect the various ethnicities that make up the population of Singapore.

As far as clothing goes, the traditional clothing of Indonesia is just as colorful, although most people in modern Singapore wear shirts, shorts, skirts, suits, trousers, t-shirts and all the other garments we'd recognize in the UK or the US.

Food of Singapore

The food of Singapore is very reflective of the diverse ethnicity of the population. Both are a blend of the following influences:

  • Malaysian
  • Chinese
  • Indonesian
  • Indian
  • European
  • Sri Lankan
  • Thai
  • Filipino
  • Middle Eastern
Traditional dishes include these mouthwatering options:
  1. Chicken Rice- This is something of a national dish as far as Singaporeans are concerned. Everyone from street vendors to five star hotels serve it. The dish usually consists of steamed or boiled chicken served on oily rice. It is usually accompanied by sliced cucumber and a range of dipping sauces including soy, ginger and chilli.
  2. Char Kway Teow- Stir-fried flat rice noodles with Chinese sausage, whole prawns. Fishcake, beansprouts, soy and chilli. The dish also often features cockles, and is a street hawker favorite.
  3. Wonton (Wantan Mee)- Thin egg noodles fried in a Chinese sauce and served with prawn or pork dumplings, and slices of BBQ pork.
Clothing of Singapore


The clothing of Singapore is also just as influenced by its regional neighbors. Cheongsam is the name of one well known Singaporean outfit.

The Sarong and the Kebaya are both traditional types of ethnic clothing. The Kebaya is a type of blouse imported from Arabia.

In everyday life, Singaporeans tend to wear loose fitting shirts, shorts and skirts. Their outfit choices are often dictated by the hot and humid climate.

Basically almost anything!

We eat Chinese, Indian, Malay, Japanese, Korean (almost all kinds of Asian actually), Middle Eastern (I think they're technically Asian too), Western (French, German, Italian, Spanish, American, British) and so on.

About the only under-represented cuisine is south American (though brazilian is popular) and african.

We'll also eat all the time (there are places open only from 2-4am and yes, you have queue 30-60min for it) and we eat in any setting. Which means in your shorts and singlet, on a rickety stool by a busy road or in your finest, in a dimmed, hushed restaurant with a liveried maitre d' by your side. And with anything, your hands, fork and knife, chopsticks and toothpicks. Take your pick!

They wear clothes like we do. Except their clothes are thinner and airy because it's so hot there.
