It is the common communication medium for the people living in Singapore which is often used in the education and business sectors. Singapore English is based on British English since Singapore was once a British colony back in 1819. Upon independence in 1965, Singapore decided that English should be the common language for all the different races and somewhat because it is a global currency. As the time goes by, Singlish, an English-based creole language was developed from the Pidgin language. Singlish is a culture.
Singapore was known as one of the global food capital because of the delicious food that the country has to offer especially in terms of sea foods. The country also offers food like Indian, Chinese, French, Thai, Spanish, Indonesian, and Italian food to the local residents and to the tourist that come in their country. In terms of the countries language, Singapore’s official languages are English, Malay, Mandarin, and Tamil. Singaporean also uses 'Singlish' (combination of English and the dialect of Singapore) as their language but the people in Singapore widely use English to communicate with other people. Singapore has a wonderful and unique kind of music.
MAJOR PROBLEM: SINGAPORE WATER SHORTAGE ISSUE Short history of Singapore: Singapore gained independence on 9th August in 1965 from the merger with Malaysia. After its separation from Malaysia, Singapore faces major problem in many areas. Singapore is a small island of area size of 718.3km square. Given her limited land capacity, Singapore face a severe lack of natural resources such as water. In the ’60s and ’70s, Singapore was heavily reliant on imported water from Malaysia and faced urbanisation challenges such as polluted rivers, water shortages and widespread flooding.
Water, our main source of survival is even such a limited resource that we have to purchase our water from Malaysia. Other countries can also grow their own food, but Singapore is just too small to be selfsufficient. Singapore has three food taps, imports, self production and stockpiles. However, Singapore only produced 10% of its food and imports the other 90%. Thus, can be said that Singapore is extremely vulnerable to external factors such as climate change in other countries.
According to the many international surveys, Singapore is the most liveable cities in the world. Along with the liveability Singapore is also counted in the one of the leading commercial hub with the fourth-biggest financial centre and one of the busiest port in all over the world. It has developed rapidly from the third world to first world country in just over 50 years with the aim to developing a competitive economy and achieving environmental sustainability. In previous years the government of Singapore already proven his legacy by its sound planning, inter-department coordination and most important its timely implementation capability. It has been almost two years, ministry of national development, released his land use plan-2030 with
Introduction The Economy of Singapore Singapore is a small city-state and island country in Southeast Asia. Generally, the economy in Singapore is very well condition. Since the economy of Singapore is dependent on export and import, it always has been affected by related international crises. Country of Singapore lacks land and natural resources, like fuels, metals, or minerals. The primary sector does not make any significant contribution to the GDP.
As Richards (1983) states, Singapore English differs a bit from the Standard British English in grammar and vocabulary, and more noticeably in phonology. To understand the situation, we should know that Singapore was under British colonial rule from 1819 until 1965. Before 1965, the standard form of English in Singapore had always been British English and "Received Pronunciation", which was brought to the island. As Bao (2001) indicates, education in the English language only took place after Singapore gained its independence in 1965, therefore, English in Singapore began to take a life of its own, which led to the development of the now known as Standard Singapore English. Singapore is considered nowadays a cosmopolitan melting pot of ethniticies.
Global warming i.e the increase in the temperature of the global surfaces is the main challenge of 21st century. From around 1980 to 2010, Singapore lost approximately 90 percent of its natural forests as a result of urbanisation and it has lost up to 73 percent of its animals and plants over the last two centuries.” World Conservation Union (IUCN) figures estimate that 77 percent of the island 's remaining butterflies, fish, birds, mammals, and other species are threatened”. Many of these endangered species will be at increased risks of extinction due to Global Warming. which will add on to the already extreme pressures from development and environmental pollution in Singapore. The demands of ever growing population has a profound impact on the environment and human conditions .Human activity in Singapore has generated many economic gains but at the cost of huge impact on the environment, including loss of biodiversity and ecosystems , which in turn has resulted in many social, economic and cultural losses.
