10 Uniquely Singaporean Products To Rein In The National Day Festivities

No, you won't find another ang ku kueh or curry puff plushie in the list

In just a little over two weeks, Singapore will be celebrating her 53rd birthday.

And if you're feeling a little salty about not snagging the coveted National Day Parade tickets or perhaps cannot relate to getting in touch with your patriotic side by feasting on local delights (because you've been doing so every day), then why not display your Singapore pride by bagging up some of these locally-inspired lifestyle products!

With the rise of numerous local designers and craftsmen, many common day-to-day items have been reimagined and invented with a Singaporean twist. Lifestyle stores like Megafash and Naiise have also helped bring these artists to prominence. So embrace your patriotic spirit and bring back fond memories of your time in Singapore when you get your hands on some creations that pay homage to our great nation:

10. Goldilocks Lah  

Multidisciplinary artist Casey Chen has actively involved himself in the Singapore and International art and design scenes. So it comes as no surprise that he launched Singlish storybooks that are remakes of some children classic tales. Some titles include The Three Little Pigs Lah and The Red Riding Hood Lah that were launched in 2013 and 2015 respectively. The latest to join the series is The Goldilocks Lah, launched recently this year.  These stories bring back nostalgia where we used to devour these English stories in a bid to improve our language. But mind you, these books are not meant for the young due to the use of graphic language and more importantly, broken English, don’t say we never warn you ah!
