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!
Hmmm, not exactly the response we’re hoping for but let’s move on.

Seems like Evan, who owns a residential cleaning company, is not too impressed with Singapore’s level of cleanliness. Reach him at [email protected] for household cleaning help. (Remind him about our commission too, thanks!)

Yoges is an Asst Professor so we’re not exactly sure what he meant …
(You can read her response if you move your eyes slightly higher, boys. Bit more. No, not there, high.. oh, we give up!)
Except when you win money at the casino
Especially the wan tan noodles
‘Lan See’? No way!
Said in the least aggressive manner.
If you’re 74 and a Singaporean, there’s a job for you at Burger King.
- Yes, hard-working, as in: If this article was written by a Singaporean, it’ll actually be ready on time and with less spelling mistakes too.
‘Plenty of summonses’.
Especially if you don’t pay your summonses on time.
They’ll smile as they take your money.
Not a word we’d associate with the lion city. What’s it doing in this column, we have no idea!
And the final word goes to …
What about you? What do you think of Singapore? Share your thoughts in the comments below. Oh, and curious to see what Singaporeans think of us in return?
