A lot of local guys in Singapore like to claim that women in Singapore only like Westerners. However, interviews conducted with Westerners quickly found out that this may not be true.
In fact, Singaporean women are equally likely to go out with both locals and foreigners.
So why do many Singaporean men feel that way? The truth is that looks is not the deciding factor and the men who feel this way are looking in the wrong direction.
The truth is that the pretty Singaporean ladies (here are some showcased gorgeous Singaporean girls) are not looking at race – but money. Singapore is an expensive place to live in and where status symbols are the absolute rage. Men with power and money will get all the women.
If you prefer having a romantic relationship with no strings attached, then it is perhaps a better idea to look at escorts if you do not want to deal with all the hassles. Otherwise, in any case, money is required if you want to succeed in the dating game in Singapore!
Is it lucrative to get a night job and work in Singapore’s nightlife industry given that Singapore is frequently visited by wealthy foreigners, investors and businessmen? Let us explore that today.
There are various types of jobs which are classified under Singapore’s nightlife or adult industry. This does not mean dodgy or illegal. It simply means that only adults are able to enter these locations or engage these services, such as clubs, bottle service, bars, escort service, pubs e.t.c.
So now let us explore and see which of these jobs can pay you really well.
First of all, jobs in clubs. There are three prominent jobs in every club – bouncer, DJ and baristas. Which one of these jobs pay the best? DJs jobs definitely pay the best – if you are good at it. As a bouncer or barrister, you can only make so much money. However, if you are a world class DJ, you can command insane levels of income. Some DJs make 4 or 5 figures per gig! If you want to work in a club and be well paid, work towards becoming a world class DJ. Singapore can be your jumping stone to international DJ fame.
Second of all, you can look into escort service work. You must make sure only to pick reputable, legal and registered Pte Ltd companies. A way to make sure that you are entering a reputable and legal agency is to make sure that you can at least find a website or social media profiles of their agency, with actual likes e.t.c. going to it. Additionally, make sure that there is no sex or sexual services as part of your job scope. If the agency fulfills both of the above points, then chances are, you can consider joining it. Of course, not everyone can enter, and escorts are almost always only female. Additionally, you must be attractive and great at customer service. You are essentially a ‘girlfriend’ companion to the client. Escort jobs is among one of the highest paying jobs you can get in the nightlife industry in Singapore. Join a reputable, legal agency and you will be able to make all that cash without dodgy work!
Third of all, you can look into jobs at pubs or bars. Most of the jobs here are simply being a waiter/waitress or barista. I will say that this is one of the lowest paying businesses in the nightlife industry. Only work at this if you want to simply make a little bit of side income as a university undergraduate (or Poly student if you are above 18).
If you want to enjoy Singapore’s nightlife, you cannot miss out on its vibrant and packed nightclubs! Here are some of the most popular nightclubs you can possibly find in Singapore, both among locals as well as expatriates.
First of all, it would be Ku De Ta. If you are a foreigner, you will love this club, as any foreigners flock to this club. This is especially so during large Singapore events such as the F1 racing events in September. Located at Marina Bay Sands, Ku De Ta is for the average tourist.
Second of all, if you are absolutely loaded, check out Pangaea. Pangaea is one of the world’s most expensive clubs. Each table costs between $2000 to $15000, and many people there are regulars and are multi millionaires at least. (Unless they are a friend of someone who is one.) This is definitely recommended if you want to separate yourself from the crowd. In fact, I dare say this is the only club where business deals may be made. Only relationships may be made in other clubs. But both relationships and business deals are born in Pangaea.
Third of all, if you want to join in the usual and most famous club in Singapore, you must check out Zouk. Zouk is one of Singapore’s largest clubs and hosts some of the most prominent entertainment events in Singapore. It’s definitely a must go to if you are an expatriate in Singapore.
There are obviously several other nightclubs in Singapore, but many of them are only frequented by students and rowdy ‘teenagers-like’ people. If you are already a working adult, go to the above three, they are definitely much more recommended.
If you need a female companion to enter these clubs to show off your social status, that is no problem as well. Singapore has no lack of social escorts, and here is a famous local social escort agency: http://www.yp.sg/company/sgvip-services-pte-ltd
Singapore has fantastic food and everything is in close vicinity to everything else, making it an awesome hot spot for expats, locals and tourists. So how then can you enjoy Singapore even more, especially if you are a tourist or visiting businessman? The best and easiest way is to engage a social escort to bring you around Singapore (Do note this is for the loaded clients and not budget ones.)
Social escorts from local agencies are usually strictly local, Singaporean girls. This means that they will likely be very familiar with Singapore’s roads, good drinking places e.t.c. By engaging a social escort model to show you around, not only are you able to have a pretty girlfriend for the day, you are also able to be brought around Singapore!
Obviously, as the main goal of an escort is romantic companionship to you, she may not be as well educated with respect to the nitty gritty bits of Singapore that a tour guide may know. However, when you compare having a really pretty and hot girl as your female companion around Singapore who may know 10% less about Singapore than a old and plain Jane tour guide, the former is definitely more attractive as an option!
So with all that talk, where can you find an escort to accompany you? Social escorts in Singapore are easily found online, and you can simply search Google, Bing or Yahoo for these agencies. Most social escorts in Singapore work with agencies, instead of independently due to Singapore’s conservative culture. They will rather be able to hide behind the privacy of a local agency.
Do note that when you are searching for a social escort in Singapore, make sure only to engage those models from agencies. There is a reason why you seldom hear people in Singapore engage independent escorts – this is simply because their online photographs are usually fake and not representative of how they actually look like in real life. In business, this is called bait and switch. It’s unethical, and therefore most people have a deep distrust of non-agencies in Singapore. Take this advice from me – a regular of escort services in Singapore – only engage social escorts from agencies. You don’t want to be given a bad scare when you bump into the supposed local Singaporean but turned out to be a foreigner! Additionally, most independent escorts are basically prostitutes, and not escorts. So they will not accompany you around Singapore and bring you around. However, reputable escorts will do that, as they are actually social escorts and female companions for hire, and not prostitutes.
If you are an expatriate to Singapore, and have not yet been in Singapore for long, here are some of the most awesome things about Singapore’s nightlife that you can enjoy as an expatriate. Some of the following suggestions are friendlier on your pocket, while others may require some hundred dollar or even thousand dollar bills! But it should be no problem for your expatriate’s salary.
Although Singapore is well known for it being business and investor friendly, it also has other benefits for expats such as nightlife entertainment! It’s just not as often talked about because Singapore’s even more awesome for business headquarters and investments due to stability of the region.
Here are the 5 things you can do as an expat in Singapore if you want to enjoy Singapore’s nightlife entertainment to the fullest!
5 highly recommended nightlife activities for expats in Singapore:
Bars – Clarke Quay
Thanks to the small land area of Singapore, many things are concentrated together. Although this can mean potential overcrowding in certain areas, it also means that you can access a lot of different pubs, bars and clubs all at one location – the Clarke Quay river side strip. One of the most popular hangout places for adults at night, Clarke Quay really shines during Wednesday night (where it’s ladies night in Singapore and girls get free entries into clubs), Friday night and Saturday nights. If you want to enjoy and meet some local Singaporean ladies, then make sure to enter Clarke Quay bars and clubs during either one of these three nights.
Although Singapore may seem very conservative and no one talks about gambling at the casinos publicly, it is actually very popular and Marina Bay Sands Casino and Resorts World Sentosa Casino are both super hotspots for tourists and expats who like gambling. Most of the people there are gamblers and high rollers from Indonesia, China and Hong Kong. If you are a gambler, you must go to these casinos. You will see few locals there, as there is a $100 levy on Singaporeans and Permanent Residents. Although $100 is nothing, most local gamblers are not exactly the wealthy ones. Only the poorer parts of Singapore population like to gamble, so $100 is an effective deterrent to them. The wealthy ones generally prefer just enjoying life and doing business in Singapore… and other forms of nightlife entertainment. You will be pleased to know that the casinos are open 24 hours if you are a gambler.
I hope you are not too old, because 90% of the top night clubs in Singapore attracts mainly only people aged 19 to 35. If you are older, you can obviously enter, but it will be a little odd. Chances are, if you’re reading this blog, and working as an expatriate in Singapore, you are probably aged between 28 to 38. That is still fine. But if you are above 40, unless your attire shows that you’re clearly loaded with money and you look young, local girls may not want to talk to you. But if you are an expatriate between age of 28 to 38, make sure to check out Avalon and Attica, two popular clubs among expats, as they are higher priced and attract a better audience (hint: prettier women).
You may think that Singapore doesn’t have escorts, but Singapore does. Of course, there are lots of illegal escorts here on illegal work permits / non-existent work permits from the neighbouring South East Asian countries. However, if you stick to engaging only local agencies, you will do fine, as they engage only locals (for the legal agencies). Escorts in Singapore are generally more well educated, and are very classy, unlike the typical slutty looking escorts in places like Las Vegas.
You simply cannot talk about Singapore without talking about its food! Singapore has some of the best and cheapest hawker food in the world! In fact, most of these stores are also open till past midnight – which is a real gem and enjoyment for expats who used to come from countries like America or Australia, where everything closes at 5 or 6pm.
