10 Most Popular Singapore Urban Legends

TMB:

Recently I attended a graffiti workshop sponsored by Converse – The Cons Project the first session was run by Ink & Clog. Two infamous street artist from the Singapore scene. During their workshop they mentioned on what inspires them, to create their new characters. Local myths and legends were a topic which they mentioned seemed the most intriguing. Many of us Singaporeans grow up learning about these myths and legends and talk about during our primary school era, but sooner or later it just become a passing cloud. Today, I had this random though to do a little research on the local myths and legends. Little did I know there was much more to it.. This following blog post was an eye opener to me. Truly an inspiration for some new art pieces. Thank you Ink&Clog and Remember Singapore .

Certis Cisco Officer’s Brutality

Watch two of Singapore’s finest Certis Cisco Officer’s (Auxiliary Policemen) enforcing the long arm of the law in Singapore.

A little appalling of how these two gents have handled the situation with an individual who is illegally fishing. From my knowledge I don’t think these guys even have the authority to demand an individuals National Identification Card (NRIC).

Certis Cisco has yet to make a statement on this event.
