To Matter co-founder, small is definitely better especially when getting around is easy on our sunny island

You know you've met a Singaporean when... they're talking about their recent or next meal.

My fondest memory from the last five decades is... Milo Dinosaur.

I wish Singapore would bring back... pasar malams.

As a Singaporean, I really love to complain about... other Singaporeans.

Singaporeans should stop complaining about... how small we are.

The most underrated thing about Singapore is... how small we are.

Every time I return back to our island, I appreciate... how easy it is to get around.

The cost of our country's progress... a culture of risk taking.

In 10 years time, I would like to see Singapore... stop asking who we are and just being it.

Singapore is uniquely... transitional.

Durian: Bitter or sweet?... Bitter.
