Do you know what expats think about Singapore? In his book Getting into Singapore : a guide for expats and kaypoh Singaporeans / David Goldwich (ISBN: 9789810832193), David Goldwich, who is an expat from Miami and married a Singapore Chinese girl, relates humorously about his experience of living in Singapore.
An interesting remark which he made is with regards to the issue of punctuality for appointments. According to him, many Singaporeans are operating on his so-called SRT (Singapore Rubber Time), which allows for flexibility in meeting times! [Note: Singapore Time Zone: GMT+8 (Greenwich Mean Time + 8 hours)]. As such, these people tend to "arrive after the appointed time without actually being late" (p.9-10).
