SINGAPORE - 狮城.net

狮城.net ~ xn--uis144d.net

LION CITY in simplified Chinese.

LION CITY is the alias of Singapore.


SINGAPORE

#55 Largest cities and urban areas in 2006
#66 Largest cities and urban areas in 2020
#240 Fastest growing cities and urban areas

Singapore is an island state at the tip of the Malay Peninsula and retained its territorial integrity as such even during the period of British colonial rule which officially lasted from 1867 to 1963. A small measure of independence was gained in 1959 when it became a self-governing crown colony under Lee Kuan Yew as Prime Minister, before joining the independent Federation of Malaysia in 1963. Two years later it was expelled from Malaysia owing to racial and ideological disputes, gaining outright independence on August 9 1965.

Re: 狮城.net

WTF?
I'm not sure what to make of this post. Is it spam, a joke, or contemporary guerrilla art?

It's no problem IDNer. I love Singapore as long as I don't have to stay more than 3 days there. The food is great, it's clean and safe. It's close to Tioman.

But I still don't get the point of your post. Are you promoting a site or something? Confused...

Re: SINGAPORE - 狮城.net

This term actually isn't so popular, but it's always used by the media in China because the word, 新加坡 is too similar to 新家坡.

Thanks for your infos.

I never heard of 新家坡 either, but I think 新家 probably means "fortune". So from your hint, I would say 新家坡 means "fortune gone", a very sad situation that nobody wants to be in.

You should be able to speak 閩南話 right? That's almost Taiwanese language!

His school comment is meant to be a joke.

新家 means 'New Home' as IDNer has pointed it out, and it is a sensitive word in China.

Very interesting! Thank you for the education. It is very nice to learn something new and gain further insight on different languages.

Thanks Giant & Touchring,

I'm a Chinese (福建) - living in Taiwan for about 50 years, I'm fluent in reading & writing Chinese, but I'm not the expert of Chinese and/or Taiwanese languages

Maybe some words & sentences have their own special meaning in different contents, just like other languages around the world...

You are so humble IDNer. My guess was wrong, so I am waiting for Touchring...

Re: SINGAPORE - 狮城.net

The word 狮城 is very seldom used in Singapore, in fact i've not heard anyone using this word for the past few months.

But go to China, you'll see that word mentioned on newspapers and tv. I'm not sure why the official term 新加坡 is not used that often in China, but i believe it's due to it sounding the same as "new home", or maybe some other reasons.
