Variety of Singapore

Singapore's special feature is that it truly is a mix of asian cultures, languages and religions, but the people all consider themselves Singaporian. I was on the train yesterday, to my left was a Indian man, to my right a woman in a white head-dress, probably Malaysian and muslim, and to her right were a Indian woman and her daughter in colorful Indian clothes, and in front of me some Chinese speaking high school students. I thought, amazing...
On another note, as I said before the English here is not what I am used to. Rather than elevator or escalator, people say "Lift". For Exit, they just say "Way Out".....
