Crazy Rich Singapore is Coming Alive

5118 ratings | 282175 views
It was once known as a place where people went to work, rather than play - but a lot has changed. Singapore now boasts six of the world's best bars, 47 Michelin stars, and a vibrant mix of cultures.

+Licia Field's Now do you want to know about the money I paid to get through K immigration and customs?
Licia Field's (2 days ago)
+dave choy sorry about that we still have challenges with corruption but trying to eradicate it..the Singaporean immigration is also not very nice..actually they harassed me including going through my phone which I felt is an intrusion of my privacy..since I have never experienced that in all other countries I have visited.

dave choy Lucky you didnt tell him the truth, that we have zero tolerance for corruption, thats why the country can prosper and progress. Else you may end up in the slammer LOL
dave choy (10 days ago)
I was in Kenya earliy this year on a business trip on a business visa. While meeting with my associates, I was arrested by immigration officers and thrown into the back of a van without charge. When one of the officers realized I was Singaporean, he asked me how did Singapore become so rich and successful. I replied that we do not harass investors. Paid KES200,000 and I was released and my passport returned.

I think I want Singapore to let me buy a house in Singapore if I can show I am Singaporeon. I think Singaporeons are Indian and Chinese. I think my dad is part Gujarati,Punjabi and Bactrian. I think my mom is part Chinese. I want to be a Myanmar citizen and Singapore citizen. My brother George can be a USA citizen and Singapore citizen.

Many commented that Singapore is boring due to its smallness, concrete jungle, lack of mountains, lakes etc. When I working in Singapore, I never felt boring. Why? Cos I treated Singapore as the capital city of the “country” ASEAN. I have gone to HK, Seoul, Tokyo, Osaka, Bali, Bangkok, Ho Chi Min City, Sibu, Medan, etc etc due to its close proximity to the other Asian countries and its many cheap Budget Airlines fares. I live in LA but I never have visited NY.
Silas Bishop (28 days ago)
Singapore has been alive for a long time. Trying to piggyback off "Crazy Rich Asians"? I don't think Westerners are surprised there are rich people in Asia. Show me Crazy Rich Africans. That might surprise some people. Cote D'Ivoire, Ethiopia and Ghana are growing fast.

I get that Singapore is rich. But how are "Indian" and "Malay-muslim" quaters ever counted as attractions? I bet 90% of western and asian tourists are never interested in those places. In the end, Singapore is merely about ultra-expensive bars and garden, isn't it. Politically, it is opressive and there is no freedom of speech either.
dave choy (10 days ago)
Its called ignorance. Little India and Haji Lane are extremely popular with tourists.

I don’t understand this Western obsession with multiculturalism. Every video I see of cities, the first thing they seem to talk about is that whether the city is a melting-pot or and if it ain’t then that city is bland. I am sensing a globalist agenda from these mouthpieces that brandish themselves as media platforms.
K Lim (22 hours ago)
Multiculturalism is what kept Singapore safe and secure. LKY specifically designed it so that all the races would get along with each other. If you have never experienced a race riot before, I would tell you that having a boring safe environment is preferable to that any day

Looks very cool but in fact it’s all tourist attractions. When asking locals to hang out, there’s only 2 activities: “go where to eat?” Or “go where to drink?”
scylla019 (1 month ago)
As Rem Koolhaas said in Singapore Songlines, Singapore is a Potemkin metropolis. It’s all appearances to boost tourism. In truth, we are culturally sterile. All our culture and nostalgia is remade for appearances and younger generations of Singaporeans aren’t connected to their traditions. Our nature is manmade. Our conserved buildings are a home to hostess karaoke bars and our people are pretending to be american

Luckliy you don't live in Africa, you'll write a book.
magicalworl34 (1 month ago)
As a Singaporean myself, I would never understand why people would called us "culturally rich". We are NOT. We may seemed like it, but no, we're not. I mean take the movie, Crazy Rich Asians for example. They tried to make it show as if it's all Singapore, but truth is 70% of the movie were filmed in Malaysia, while the remaining 30% are the Newton Food Centre, Marina Bay Sands, and the church. Our local dialect (Hokkien) is practically dying, because lesser and lesser people know how to understand let alone speak it. We kept claiming food from Malaysia as our food, but let's be honest, WE (Singaporean) ALL KNOW we're just kidding ourselves. So let's be real for a second here, Singapore ain't culturally rich, we are economically rich and I, for one, am extremely proud of that, but we are certainly not culturally rich. Thanks.

I'm from Hawaii. I'm traveling around the world SLOWLY. I've been in Singapore for 2 weeks already and will stay at least for 1 more. I'm so impressed w/this place. You guys are smaller than HALF of my hometown island of Oahu. HALF. You are smaller than New York or Los Angeles but you have universal health care (I haven't had medical insurance since my parents died), 9O% home ownership (I sleep in my minivan), one of the largest refineries in the world (I used to work for Chevron, a socially undesirable company), a desalination plant (so why is water so expensive?), a zoo, an amusement park, driverless subway trains which appear every 4 minutes, bilingualism, F-15s patrolling the skies and soon to get F-35s. Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew was the right man for the right time. "Whoever governs Singapore must have that IRON in him. This is not a game of cards." You gotta love that man. I do. And I ain't Singaporean.

Singapore was more alive when it was a kampong. Now everyone is addicted to social media and artificial living. Everyone is getting more dead inside as this country grows "alive".

The rest of the world is not addicted so social media. You want Singapore to be a Crazy Rich Kampong? Sadist

Singapore was not founded in 1965. It just became independant in 1965. Singapore was founded at 1299. Back then it was called Singapura, which is the malay name for Singapore. In the 1810s Raffles came to singapore, and renamed singapura to singapore. In 1960, Singapore became part of malaysia, and in 1965 Singapore became independant.

A semi-communist concrete jungle run by corporates to funnel their taxes, living off tolerant hard working locals, drained of any culture and replaced by one influenced by their American masters. It isn't boring if you are not one of many slaves stuck living there and feeding those leeching rulers and their business oligarch masters.
