Although this new website does not provide yet a very comprehensive list of what to do here in Singapore, the basic travel essentials as well as some travel stories should give every Filipinos an idea of what to expect in this small island state.

From a page in Pinoy Lah:

What’s LAH got to do with it?

You know how we use ‘Po’ and ‘Opo’ here in the Philippines? Well that’s how Singaporeans use their ‘LAH’. This is the most famous of Singaporean expressions used at the end of sentences for emphasis. “OKAY, lah” or “SORRY, lah” “Very funny, lah”

And yeah, if you register on the website and answer a very short online survey before the deadline on 16 October 2009 you might stand a chance to win one of the 12 MP3 players, which they are giving away. Click HERE for a chance to become one of the winners.

If you have further questions regarding Singapore that is not tackled in the above website, please feel free to direct it to me and I will try my best to answer it. 😉

  1. I didn’t know Singaporeans have their own unique expression. But for Singapore’s Tourism Board to specifically target Pinoys only point to the growing number of inbound tourists from the Philippines.

    • Bai,

      Singaporeans practically place a “lah” at the end of every sentence… 🙂 As to the number of Filipino tourist visiting Singapore, you will really be surprise. Everywhere you go, someone is speaking Tagalog or even Bisaya.

  2. ah.. yun pala un.. lah.. hehehe ngayon ko lang nalaman..
