Singapore’s public spirit is strong and the MRT is always plastered with entertaining stickers about various things. None can top the new campaign against public nose-picking. I’m not stating that Singaporean-Chinese are the only people on the planet who pick their noses in public; it is something I’ve noticed a lot since arriving months ago. Though if the campaign wants to be accurate, the photo of the young actor should be replaced by one of a grizzled uncle in a stained singlet (American translation: old guy in a dirty wife-beater).
The blog I’m linking to also has a short feature on a Hep B campaign with clam costumes.

Oh Roomie this section could be a career or a coffee table book! Just another day in paradise. I love the fact TIS has made it into publication….. Yeah. Must run I need to pick my nose!
**dumbstruck** I really have no words.
I have you to thank for TIS. 🙂
Make sure to pick your nose in public.
It is another day in the life, for sure. I’m glad they’re at least trying to STOP the habit — it’s a step forward.
I wish they’d get men in the US to stop spitting on the sidewalk — swallow your own saliva! It won’t kill you! Anyway….
Nose picking, like some other activities, should be done in private:)
So should chin-hair plucking or ear-cleaning. No PSAs about those activities yet — I’m waiting.
I just realized, I missed an opportunity to quote The Simpsons on a subject! I’m slipping!
“The doctor said I wouldn’t have so many nosebleeds if I just kept my finger out of there!” -Ralph Wiggum.
The Simpsons have literally covered every possible situation in life. They have.
i like licking the nostril-and-philtrum of ladies than just kissing; they do not pick their noses nor spit … neither do i
Thank you for sharing. I’m glad you at least keep fingers out of noses (and don’t spit either).
