Red Dot Rants 1: the comedy and tragedy of living in Singapore

Dewdrop Publications

Welcome to the land of rapid demolition/construction, extreme shopping, scripted lives, sanitized fun and sheltered walkways.

Nicknamed "The Little Red Dot" by some Indonesian president, tiny Singapore is one of the richest countries in the world with the highest paid leaders in the world and close to 100% home ownership. Yet, beneath the veneer of prosperity, is a cold and calculative society inhabited by a highly stressed and frustrated people who somehow want to be pampered and spoon-fed all their lives. 


What does Singapore look like beneath the surface? Why are people so well-off yet unhappy? Or are they really that well-off? Come with us and take an insider's view of this enigmatic, atypical Southeast Asian country.

Red Dot Rants is a collection of cynical yet funny and lighthearted essays and social commentaries by Singaporean writer/blogger Chan Joon Yee. A baby boomer who grew up in Singapore during the 60s and 70s, Chan is as comfortable touching on current affairs as he is with nostalgic recollections. Be touched and tickled by these nice and nasty essays.
