Balance Ton Vieux {Squeal On Your Elderly}

It’s rare that a punchline/tagline comes to me in French but each time I see this ad I think of the hashtag used for the #MeToo movement in France, which was #BalanceTonPorc, translated in the Anglo-Saxon media by #SquealOnYouPig.

Balance” in this context can be translated “to denounce” (or “to expose”) or in more familiar terms “to squeal on” or “to rat on/to rat out”.

I have no “Senior to Refer” so I’m not eligible for any eVoucher.

The famous Singapore Sling at the Long Bar in Raffles Hotel.

Oh and the peanut shells have to be thrown on the floor… it’s the tradition!

14-Jan-2022: D-156 before departure

It seems like yesterday when we could sit really close to our neighbor in bars, throw the shells on the floor and drinks past 10:30pm (at bars and restaurants*).

18+ months of not only not being able to order an alcoholic drink after 10:30pm but you also have to be done with drinking it!

* before the Covid-19 (Temporary measures) (Contril Order) Regulations the 10:30pm alcohol restrictions were different. Since April 2015 and The Liquor Control (Supply and Consumption) Act, drinking is banned in all public places from 10.30pm to 7am. Retail shops are also not allowed to sell takeaway alcohol from 10.30pm to 7am. […] There are stricter rules in Geylang and Little India, which are designated as Liquor Control Zones – places with a higher risk of public disorder associated with excessive drinking. Public drinking is banned in Geylang and Little India from 7am on Saturday to 7am on Mondays. The ban also applies from 7pm on the eve of a public holiday to 7am after the holiday. Shops within the zones are also not allowed to sell takeaway alcohol from 7pm on weekends, the eve of a public holiday, and the holiday itself.

~~~Just a little FYI So for my last 200 days in Singapore I have decided to reblog, in no special order, a post from the 6 years I will have spent on the Little Red Dot. PS: you will then get 2 posts a day!!~~~
