Yes, we do express our love (and occasional disdain) for Singapore by constantly complaining about everything, which is pretty much our national pastime — after eating, that is. It’s just not that cool to overtly proclaim our undying love for the nation… right? Except perhaps on National Day itself. Maybe.
Anyway, funnywoman/online personality Preetipls recently put up a tongue-in-cheek video for Singapore’s 52nd birthday, presenting 26 things she loves (and dislikes) about Singapore. Basically, all the topics close to Singaporeans’ hearts are on that list. Yep, everything from Giordano’s Photoshop fiasco to local talents on Sing! China to the siao lang town that is Yishun.
Even LiHO made it in there, for “reminding us all that we prefer Gong Cha”.
We’ll just leave this here for you to enjoy.
FYI, after you’re done with the video, re-watch it again and read the Mandarin subtitles (or get someone to translate it for you) — they’re nowhere close to what Preetipls actually says.
Paywall: You’re outta here, Coconuts stories are free for all
We have removed our paywall on all Coconuts stories. This does not mean the end of COCO+ Membership at all, but the value proposition is changing.
Rather than being a transactional subscription – whereby you pay for access to content – it is now a true membership program – whereby Coconuts stories are free for everyone but super-fans can monetarily support our independent journalism, and get added member benefits.
If you'd like to support Coconuts, you can become a COCO+ Member for as little as US$5 per year. Thank you!
