Summary "CultureShock! Singapore takes you inside the tiny island nation at the tip of the Malaysian archipelago and pulls back the veneer on a country that is both Asian and Western at the same time. Discover how this multi-racial society manages to work like clockwork despite its disparate backgrounds, and find out how to deal with the people's kiasu attitude. Through this book--filled with practical information and tips for everyday living--you will learn more about the different local and ethnic customs and beliefs, and be introduced to its diverse and mouth-watering cuisine. CultureShock! Singapore is the definitive read for anyone who wants to settle easily into Singaporean society and it will have you understanding Singlish in no time."--Publisher
