Rules, Rules, Rulessssssss!!



No excuse. It comes in all four official languages: English, Chinese, Malay, Tamil . We are multi racial, so even a simple rule has been translated to FOUR languages. Now you see, you have no more excuses...

Somehow looking at these rules, you can imagine how many rules we need to abide just in public premise, considering these are already so many for being on a public bus. I just find these ''rules'' too common sense. But somehow, some inconsiderate people will need such reminders. Look at the the extend of reminders: NO durians!
This sign will probably not appear in the europeanean cities, since this fruit is all native to south-eastern Asia cities. It has a strong fragrant and it can be overpowering to some. But hey, it's one of my favourite fruits.

I like the graphics...just party visible but the hairdo in Singapore may be cool punkish based on these graphics:)

I guess there's a rule for everything. :)

Pretty much the same rules on buses here (except for the durians - that graphic puzzled me until you explained it). Our signs are in English and Spanish though.

Do you feel just a little over regulated?

hi Zsolt, the flying punky hair is to show they are 'flunk' by the efficient and fast moving bus so that passengers will be considerate enough to let 'their seats to someone who needs it more' :)


olivier,
yes, many rules including the common sense ones...


jing,
you dun like durians? it's a very rich fruit, speculated with some health medicinal contents too:) The best part of this fruit is the custard-like flesh, i love it when it is slightly bitter-sweet:p


curly and j.andrew,
moderation is the key. i prefer not too much...


louz and meg,
Those are durians :)

macky,
you should try some!:D when you are here...these days, all through the year, you'll see durian stalls. In my younger days, it's really very seasonal, only certain months, but now we can almost organise a durian party anytime :)
