Find out what the artist thinks is the most underrated thing about our country

You know you've met a Singaporean when... they speak.

I wish Singapore would bring back... the former National Library at Stamford Road.

Singaporeans should stop complaining about... the weather.

The most underrated thing about Singapore is... the size of the country.

Every time I return back to our island, I appreciate... the cleanliness and convenience.

The cost of our country's progress... is a slow life that is hard to be achieved.

The one local dish I would pay any amount for is... yong tau fu.

In 10 years time, I would like to see Singapore... become more receptive to different artistic expressions.

Durian: Bitter or sweet... Bittersweet.
