Is Singapore – still – a boring city?

By Alywin Chew       14 September 2020

As such, we detest anything that leaves a blemish on our picture-perfect society. We are quick to rebuke those who don’t share our sentiment – just like how the Singapore Tourism Board (STB), in response to the TimeOut rankings, cited having $2 Michelin-star soya sauce chicken rice as something that is exciting. Dear STB, the only people who would find cheap chicken rice exciting are NSFs stuck outfield.

You know what is also boring? Our ripostes. The most common one we can muster for those who call our country boring is that we can walk along the streets at 3am and not get mugged!
