SINGAPORE: An individual on the verge of moving to Singapore for the first time has turned to Singaporeans, asking them for local advice and recommendations for living in the country. Many did not disappoint, sharing quite a bit of helpful tips.

“I’m moving to Singapore, what should I know?” an online user asked Singaporeans in an online news forum on Tuesday (July 11). “I’m moving to Singapore in a few weeks and it’s (going to be) my first time living alone abroad for my course at PSB,” the netizen shared. “I would appreciate (it) if any of (you could) drop some recommendations for cheap food, the do and don’ts, some Singaporean slang, etc.”

From where to find a place to rent to hawker centre tips, many Singaporeans came through for the online user, sharing bits of advice on living in Singapore.

“Cheap food is literally everywhere, you do not need any recommendation for that,” said one.
