Audio script

Singapore gained its independence on 9 August 1965 and now has a population of more than five million people including Chinese, Malays, Indians and Eurasians. The country has four official languages: English, Chinese, Malay and Tamil. Singapore does not have a national costume, as people from the different ethnic groups tend to wear their traditional clothing.

The Chinese traditional attire for ladies is called cheongsam, which means a long garment. Originally, both men and women used to wear this long, one-piece dress specially designed to conceal the body shape. Today it's often worn by Chinese women in Singapore during Chinese New Year celebrations and at traditional wedding ceremonies.

For Malay men, the traditional garment is called baju melayu.

It consists of a loose shirt and a sarong worn over a pair of trousers. Malay women often wear baju kurung, which looks like a long- sleeved and collarless blouse worn over a long skirt.

The traditional dress for Indian women is thesari, which can be not only worn on special occasions, but used every day. It's a long piece of brightly-coloured cloth wrapped around the waist and hung over the shoulder. It's usually decorated with beautiful patterns.

Because of the hot temperatures and the modern character of Singapore, clothing is usually very casual and most people prefer western fashions. For business, men usually wear dark trousers, white shirts and a tie. Standard office attire for women includes a long-sleeved blouse with trousers or a skirt.

Unified by the common goal for a better future, the people of Singapore, especially the younger generations, think of themselves as Singaporeans first, and then as Chinese, Malay or Indian.

Gợi ý:

Some people believe cultural identity is how we identify ourselves as part of a culture.This can simply be done through the language we use, the food we often have, or the clothing we often wear on special occasions. In my opinion, festivals and cultural practices celebrated and preserved years after years are the most important cultural identifiers.

Through festivals, we want to express our unity as well as cultural identifier. Originally, festivals are special occasions when people at a particular place stop working in order to celebrate parties or events. They are often connected with religious beliefs of a specificgroupofpeopletothankGodsand ancestors for good harvests, fortune, and happiness.

Along with festivals, cultural practices are unique ways of expressing who we are and what country or culture we belong to. These are traditionally considered the right things to do in a community. For example, Vietnamese people usually go to pagodas on first days of New Year to pray for good health and happiness. Although we are now in modern time, these traditions are well preserved respectably as a cultural stereotype.

As people all over the world become closer and closer, we share our festivals and cultural practices -    the most important features. We organise international festivals and take part in various kinds of cultural events in other countries. This is always the meaningful way of identifying, sharing and preserving cultures.
