Washing, Singapore Style

Singapore has a tropical climate. That basically means it's summer all year round. With such heat, few families see the need to purchase dryers. The norm is to simply stick your clothes out to dry on bamboo poles.

Courtesy dictates that you wring your laundry before hanging them out or you'll receive a generous dose of scolding from the lower floors.

Dripping wet mops are also an invitation to angry neighbours from the lower floors.
