Bungee jumping had been off-limits
Singapore has decided it's time to make life a little more exciting.
In an attempt to throw off its staid image, the government has announced a ban on bungee jumping is to be lifted.
"If we want our people to make more decisions for themselves, and if we are to encourage a derring-do society, we must allow some-risk taking and a little excitement," said Prime Minister Goh Chok Tong.
And the official move to make traditionally straight-laced Singaporeans a little more wild and crazy does not stop there.
Bars are to be allowed to stay open longer and dancing on bars - once a legal offence - will also be permitted.
An "Audience Development Fund" has been established to educate public taste in art.
And the government says it will start employing openly gay people - once taboo.
Singapore is renowned for its high standard of living but strict regulations.
Jaywalking, spitting and even failing to flush the toilet correctly can lead to fines.
