Geography
Singapore is a country located in the southeast of Asia. It is located in between two countries; Malaysia and Indonesia . The country is made up of 63 islands in total. Most of the islands lie near sea level. The highest point,Timah Hill, is only 581 feet above sea level. Singapore was once apart of Malaysia but then broke off into its own country.
Some traditions people in Singapore follow are:
To hand things over with both hands because handing things over with one hand is considered disrespectful.
To address elder people as "uncle" or "aunty" even if you don't know them.
To use your whole hand to point as pointing with one hand is considered rude.
Singapore has a hot, humid climate. The average temperature is 27 degrees C. Sea breezes keep the country cool so the temperature rarely rises above 34 degrees C.The main island gets about 241 cm of rain each year. Singapore has a rainforest climate . Temperatures on average go from 23 degrees C - 34 degrees C. April and May are the hottest months of the year in Singapore. Monsoon season is November to January. July - October often has haze caused by bush fires in neighboring Indonesia.
In 1981, Malaysia decided to standardize the time across its territories to UTC+08:00. Singapore decided to follow, looking at business and travel schedules. The change took place on January 1st 1982, when Singapore moved half an hour forward, creating Singapore Standard Time (SST). SST is eight hours ahead of GMT and is the exact time as Hong Kong, Taiwan and Beijing. Singapore's timezone is UTC + 8 hours.


Since Singapore is a city-state with not much land area, it is not particularly rich in natural resources. Natural resources in Singapore are categorized into non-renewable, renewable, water resources. Non-renewable resources in Singapore include coal, oil, and natural gas. Singapore has relied on the use of bio mass as a source of renewable energy. Biomass energy is the utilization of energy stored in organic matter. Examples of bio mass include: wood, leaves, animal waste, crops, bones, and scales.

-Cell Phones
-Calculators

Singapore is a blend of western modernity and Asian culture.Wondering about the language? Most people speak English, and government signs are posted in Singapore’s four official languages: English, Chinese, Malay and Tamil. Many people from different cultures live in Singapore. So that means Singapore is a multicultural country that is great to live in.
