Culture Lifestyle Singapoke Weirdness

So we asked 30 Malaysians what they thought about Singapore…

If there’s one thing keeping us awake at night, it’s this: Why is this video getting more shares and likes than our hilarious and highly entertaining Singapoke column?! We like to think our articles are a bit more pleasing to the senses.

So in an effort to provide better content, we decided to find out what the average Malaysian thinks about Singapore. Our intrepid freelance reporters (Thanks Ed, Shaks, Marcus, Calvin, Chris and Alien!) went all around town and asked Malaysians one incisive, analytical, penetrating question: “Eh, wat you think of Singapore ah?”

Here are some of the answers. Many thanks too, to everybody who participated!

This is one of the nicer comments…

    As a Singaporean, I agree to most of them :p It’s hilarious!

    I find this article extremely hilarious. Hahaha!! Singaporeans are so easily offended so I say Singaporeans are DEFENSIVE in every sense of the word. Absolutely love Malaysia.

    1. The comments associated to the pictures are really not funny… It’s not about having a sense of humour or getting a life… it’s just about being subtile and funny, what you’re obviously not.

    2. For an Ang Moh like me living in SEA for many years already, what you are trying to achieve with this article is a joke. MY & SG is the same land and if you don’t find yourself close to each other (what? not even 50 years of independence for SG) it’s really because you have a psychologic issue. You guys are the same for the rest of the world… Anyway, continue complaining like SG 😉

    Stared at #19 for a good minute. Still don’t know what she wrote.

    From this excercise, Singaporeans can conclude that the majority of these Malaysians “judges” are too afraid to be identified but brave enough to criticize because 19 out of these 30 Malaysians choose to hide behind their paper “shields”. So if we are to generalize from their example, are 2/3s of Malaysians like that too?
    In case you’re wondering, I find most Malaysians warm and friendly and have quite a lot in common with Singaporeans (more than most would think) at least those living in KL. I also enjoy talking to Malaysian taxi drivers… I’ve even had lunch with one of them.
    Maybe its time you guys take it easy.

    I find your comment/caption for #19 offensive and sexist. It is not funnier commenting on what the lady is wearing and it is absolutely not necessary for your article. You can be funny without being sexist and without commenting on what someone else is wearing in a demeaning manner.

      Offence is taken, never given. So get a sense of humor and a life.

      Bollocks! Spew your PC bullshit elsewhere.

      How about I find your name offensive because at first glance, it resembles ‘koteh’?

      Geez!
