Common information for First Timer in Singapore

As I travel and walk daily, I use my keen eye to observe on differences we have in Philippines versus Singapore. Though we can say that Singapore is elevated against us, still Philippines is a good place to stay with smiling people and nice beaches in the world.
Here are the comparisons that I did; common vs uncommon; Philippine vs Singapore common terms:

·         Carinderia – Hawker or Kopitiam
·         Ate/Kuya (for older people) – Auntie/Uncle
·         Load – Tap up
·         Comfort Room/ Rest Room – Toilet
·         Take out – Take Away
·         Dine In – Having Here
·         Thank You – Xiexie
·         Coffee – Kopi
·         Cellphone – Hand phone
