TALLY YOUR RESULTS

Mostly 1s: True-blue Singaporean

Congratulations, you are an indisputable patriot who isn't afraid to let that flag fly high. Keep the faith, because the energy's contagious once Kit Chan's Home comes on. 

 

Mostly 2s: Sentimental Singaporean

9 August is a great excuse for a break, but you're not one to miss out on the NDP action. Don't be afraid to let that Merlion roar! 

 

Mostly 3s: Subtly Singaporean 

You may not be into flashy acts of PDA (Patriotic Displays of Affection), but we know you're still loyal at heart. Now share those secret firework-watching hideouts! 


Mostly 4s: 'Heck care' Singaporean

Deep down, we know you love this little sunny island. You just don't show it — or, God forbid, you don't actually care.
