For the first time I bought chewing gum in Singapore today. My stash usually comes from Malaysia or anywhere else my husband travels, but probably the less I say about that the better.
So interesting! You have to get it from the pharmacy, and they make you fill in a form with your name, i/c number, and the quantity and brand of gum you’re buying. I was very taken with this whole procedure. What is it that all this information is supposed to DO? If someone stickes gum on an MRT door am I going to get a visit from the police because my name is on The List? How funny.
I must say that we’ve taken legislation to new and refreshingly ridiculous depths in Singapore. Who came up with this?
