How to mail letters to Singapore

Hey all,  

Today, I'll be tackling a topic that is trickier than it seems - international mailing. Sure, it still involves an envelope and stamp, but Singapore has some interesting quirks that you should keep in mind if every trying to mail me.

First, writing the letter. This is largely on you, gentle reader, as you should have some idea of what you want to convey. No word limits here, as I've got lots of time to read your daily musings.

Second, how to write your address on the envelope. The front is mostly the same, with one major exception that I will get to in just a second.

For instance, if you have a desire to mail Patrick Kramer, this is how the "to" part of the envelope should look:

Patrick Kramer
1 Pearl Bank
#31-10 Pearl Bank Apartments
Singapore 169016
Republic of Singapore

Congratulations! If you get the appropriate stamp purchased, your letter should get to me in 1-2 weeks! It is best to actually walk into your local post office to ensure that you get the correct stampage. It shouldn't cost too much more than a regular stamp. Here in Singapore, it is only S$0.50, which is actually cheaper than a regular US stamp. So you know that expense is no excuse for my lack of response.

But now, if you would like to leave a return address, since you know Mr. Kramer would love to write back, this is where we get fancy. DON'T put it in the upper left corner, like your third grade teacher taught you. Instead, put it on the top flap on the back of the envelope, like so:



I know this is tricky, but I believe in you, wise reader. And besides, you will get so much satisfaction out of this whole event that all this extra time will be well worth it.

I hope to hear from you soon!

PK

*UPDATE - I have moved from this address. Anyone inquiring about my current address, please shoot me an email at pkram88@gmail.com, thanks*

  3. Hi it was very informative post. Thank you for sharing this information. In this era of emailing and texting, a handwritten letter has become outdated but it is one of the most classic ways of expression. The common question that arises at the time of mailing a letter is how many stamps do I need to send a letter?

    how how many stamps do i need | how many stamps do i need to send a letter

  4. and, be careful what you say, the government does read your mail, email, and listen to your phone calls. no warrant needed! (I lived there five years, one of my friend's sister worked for the government translating and transcribing phone calls in various Chinese dialects). They have little crime and lots of time to spend spying on ordinary citizens.

  13. I’m Charles David by name, i want to use this medium to alert all loan seekers to be very careful because there are scam everywhere, Few months ago I was financially strained, and due to my desperation I was scammed by several online lenders. I had almost lost hope until a friend of mine referred me to a very reliable lender called Dr Purva Pius ( A God fearing man) who lend me a loan of $237,000 under 72 working hours without any stress. I explain to the company by mail and all they told me was to cry no more because i will get my loan from this company and also i have made the right choice of contacting them i filled the loan application form and proceeded with all that was requested of me and to my shock I was given the loan, If you are in need of any kind of loan just contact him now via: {urgentloan22@gmail.com}

    I‘m using this medium to alert all loan seekers because of the hell I passed through in the hands of those fraudulent lenders.

    Thanks you Dr Purva Pius Loan service for your help.

  17. Has a guy ever given you mixed signals?

    One minute he’s crazy about you and the next minute you have no clue if he ever wants to see you again?

    And it’s especially hard when there’s something special between you and you have no idea what went wrong.

    I assure you it’s nothing that you did.

    In fact, he may even care about you a great deal and still not be able to stop himself from acting this way.

    But why does this happen?

    There’s one BIG reason why men do this...

    And I discovered this eye opening video that will shed some light on this bizarre behaviour.

    Insert subject line here and link it to: <=========> Your ex won’t be able to resist?

    It all comes down to a missing “secret ingredient” that not one in a thousand women knows about...

    And it’s the biggest factor that determines whether a man just “likes” you...

    ...or if he sees you as “The One.”

    You see, this “secret ingredient” is so important to a man that no matter how attracted to you he is, or how strong your chemistry is...

    If it’s missing, he’ll never be able to truly give his heart to you...

    And he will always have an unshakeable urge to seek out a woman who has this one “secret ingredient.”

    Here’s what I’m talking about: <=========> The difference between “like” and “love” (most women miss this)

    On the other hand, when you know this powerful “secret ingredient”...

    ...you won’t believe how effortless, passionate and bulletproof your relationship can be.

    Trust me, this is going to blow you away.

    Discover it here: ==> Men fall in love with women who have this “secret ingredient”

    Thanks again.
