my classmate offered me gum today because im singaporean. seriously, these ang mohs should educate themselves better and not be so ignorant. yes, singapore bans gum, but not the act of chewing gum itself. the government bans the import and sale of gum. so yes, you can chew gum if you brought them in from overseas for personal consumption. yes, you can chew gum in singapore, the police will not fine you, but im not too sure if you start spitting them any old how freely.

im getting sick and tired of the gum question every single time when i say im singaporean. can’t you guys come up with something new like “is singapore really that hot and humid?” or “do singaporeans really speak 4 languages?” that will be a refreshing change from, “oh, you cant chew gum in singapore right?”
