Singapore is an island nations in far south-east Asia with 5.607 million people, the country also known as the Asian Tiger. Due to its location, Singapore developed its special, unique culture that comprises multiracial and blended with Buddhism, Islam, Hinduism and Christianity all living together in harmony. Singapore itself is not tied to any specific ethnic or particular racial group. Singapore is governed by secularism that seek to "protect the state from religion fanaticism" This is the same like Namibia a secular state. After experience the worst part of Second World War under Japanese imperial occupation during World War II that took place from 1942 to 1945, following the fall of the British colony in 15 February 1942. 

Singapore is highly industrialized and well connected technologically, of course it is a political stable country. The selection of Singapore as perfect place for Trump-Kim's meeting, this is not a flaw. Singapore scored more points among the contenders like Sweden, Korean DMZ, Mongolia, Switzerland that mentioned for the summit between U.S. President Donald J.Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.  Singapore is a very friendly nations, to both all nations in the world include United States,South Korea, North Korea and China.

It's a place where foodies, explorers, collectors, action seekers, culture shapers, and socialisers meet―and new experiences are created every day. We have made a short compilation about Singapore:

Yes, our local food is amazing, so much so that the cheapest Michelin-starred eatery in the world can be found right in our hawker centres—it’s called Liao Fan Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice & Noodle. But there’s plenty more to drool over.
Embark on a culinary adventure as you hop from hawker centres to fine dining restaurants like Odette, and then to annual gastronomic extravaganzas such as the Singapore Food Festival, which takes place from June to the end of July. To really get your taste buds in a tangle, seek out ‘four hands’ dinners—it is a new trend in the city that sees two chefs collaborate on a meal, often to wild results.

2. The traditions
