    Warmest Greetings from sunny Singapore (yes we have no winters)! This is a really great forum on the forgotten art of piping in my country. Smoking is generally banned in all buildings, public Parks and sheltered places here. It’s really lonely if you are a smoker, more so a pipe smoker. Cigarette cost US$10/pack due to v.high taxes, and we have like only a 3 shops selling pipe tobacco in the whole country. And yes there is no pipe cravers, shows or conventions here.
    In fact I haven’t seen another pipe smoker in the last 30yrs, so this forum really helps me.
    On pipes I am a fan of blowfishes from Briarworks and rusticated pokers from Tom Eltang. Cheers![

    Welcome Mumbles! My in-laws just returned from a two week stay in Singapore, and they loved it.

    There are a couple of Singapore pipe smokers who post regularly on the Facebook group Gentleman’s Pipe Smoking Society.

    Welcome!
    I visited Singapore just one month ago, and actually found a great little pipe shop. Brought home a couple of beautiful pipes, but didn't dare smoking them there…

    Hello from Alberta, Canada. We have 8 months of winter, $15 smokes, $50 for tins of pipe tobacco, and no smoking in public parks, or within 10 meters of public doors or windows. Enjoy your warm weather!

    I too am curious where one can enjoy a fine pipe and a dram of scotch. Private residences only?

    Yes drinks in Singapore are also very heavily taxed. A bottle of Macallan 12yrs cost US$250 at most pubs. Drinking in public (non-restaurants) are limited till 1030pm. But smoking is the worst .. only 10% of the seats are smoking designated... and I haven’t seen PIpe smoking ever! It’s a lovely city but not if you enjoy drinks and smokes... both which I mostly do at home now. Thanks again for the Warm Welcomes! Finally found my lost tribe lol

    Howdy

    Nowhere in the world will such a brotherly feeling of confidence be experienced as amongst those who sit together smoking their pipes

    Hiya. It's pretty much the same in Southern California. I have to smoke strolling along scenic RR tracks.
