In the hood

We're convinced that there's a story waiting to be told in every neighbourhood. Even if the streets are austere, notorious for unhinged people or haven't quite come into its hipster potential just yet. Keep an open mind, and you might just find yourself digging into a winning plate of nasi goreng. Introducing Buro.'s new Youtube series: Neighbourhood Guides, where we put the spotlight on a different enclave in each episode, as explored through the lens of a comedian who has dubbed the neighbourhood as home, or sometimes, second home. 

In our first episode, we take on Serangoon with Hirzi Zulkiflie, who you would famously know from his crazy Youtube antics on MunahHirziOfficial and now a proud co-creator of the BenZi Project with Benjamin Kheng from The Sam Willows. 

From gawking at French people on bikes, making use of puppies, to getting a diva-esque hair wash at a heartland salon with a famous friend, get to know Serangoon in a different light — with the hilarious Hirzi leading the way.
