Are you proud to be Singaporean?
Shouldn’t you just be proud of actual accomplishments?
Is being Singaporean a skill?
I can never understand it when people say “I’m proud to be Singaporean.”

Ben & Jerry’s Free Cone Day is an annual celebration at Ben & Jerry’s Scoop Shops internationally. Free scopes are given out, all day long, from 12pm to 7pm. What’s more, it not only one outlet, but nearly all the outlets in Singapore are participating! (Except those at Jurong BirdPark, Night Safari, Sentosa, Singapore zoo) The first ever Free Cone Day was held in 1979, a year after Ben & Jerry opened their shop in Vermont, USA. It is a day to appreciate customers, thanking them for their support!

What are the Singaporean icons that were really big and have disappeared? Sharity Elephant, Courtesy Lion, "that environment frog" and Mr. Kiasu came to our minds... I went down to Borders at Wheelock Place and enquired about the book. Surprisingly, the sales assistant at Borders knew of it and directed me to the shelf around the "cartoon section". She jokingly exclaimed "Mr. Kiasu? The books with the funny purple covers?" when I enquired about the book.
