Hasnor Sidik (a.k.a. DJ Has) prefers our island with fewer shopping malls and, of course, ERP gantries. Who's with him?

You know you've met a Singaporean when... they complain in our distinctive accent.

My fondest memory from the last five decades is... our thriving night life.

I wish Singapore would bring back... our National Library or Jalan Ampas Studio.

As a Singaporean, I really love to complain about... too many ERP gantries.

Singaporeans should stop complaining about... how expensive our city is.

The most underrated thing about Singapore is... its diverse cultural identity.

Every time I return back to our island, I appreciate... Maxwell Food Centre's fish soup. 

The cost of our country's progress is... our original cultural identity.

The one local dish I would pay any amount for is... Nasi Padang.

In 10 years time, I would like to see Singapore... stop building malls

Singapore is uniquely... safe.

Chicken: Steamed or roasted? Steamed.

Durian: Bitter or sweet?  Sweet, Red Prawn.
