YRC 37: TOP 10 – Words We Mix Up

Writing can be fun. Reading can be enriching. But sometimes, when you are indulging in a good piece of writing, you have to do a double take because you spotted a glaring error.

But whether you are a reader or a writer, don’t fret — words are a tricky thing to get around and one should be patient in wielding them well.

YRC 36: Top 10 — Ways To Spot A Singaporean Abroad

You are on vacation in another country, and you are out one day surveying the sights and sounds of the place. Suddenly, you spot somebody acting and talking in a manner that seems extremely familiar. It literally hits home when you smile to yourself and say, “Oh hey, a fellow Singaporean’s here!”
Theresa Ellsworth returns to YRC to give you the Top 10 ways to spot a fellow Singaporean overseas. In recent years, more Singaporeans have been venturing abroad to either study or seek new experiences. But as they say, “You can take a Singaporean out of Singapore, but you can’t take Singapore out of a Singaporean!” Certain traits from our homeland tend to stick with us wherever we roam, and this sometimes reunites us with other Singaporeans overseas.
Theresa points out ten such traits, all amusingly true, here.
