Andrew is from Switzerland, the country Singapore aims to model. We are happy that Singapore has come a long way and this young nation is doing its best to achieve the "Swiss standard of living". If you study closely enough, both countries share some similarities, with compulsory military service, affectionately know as National Service (NS) in Singapore, on top of the list. In Singapore, the nation requires all male Singaporean citizens and second-generation permanent residents who have reached the age of 18 to enroll in the military. They serve a 22- or 24-month period as Full Time National Servicemen (NSFs), either in the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF), Singapore Police Force (SPF), or the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF). Singapore is a multi racial and cultural nation, just like how Switzerland is made up of three main linguistic and cultural regions: German, French, and Italian, to which the Romansh-speaking valleys are added. Although Bahasa Melayu (the Malay Language) is the nation's official language, speaking English is more than enough to get you around! Our nation's (unofficial) language, Singlish, somehow gives us the sense of a common ethnic or linguistic identity. TouristPads is started to allow tourists explore Singapore in depth. Our apps will help you get around easier powered by unlimited 3G on the go. So why wait? Hire our iPad rental service in Singapore and start enjoying the Swiss standard of living!
