Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong also vowed to "safeguard the institution of marriage", defined as between a man and a woman

Considering his father LKY Harry’s views on the racial superiority of the Chinese, it’s a wonder that Singapore allows mixed race marriages.

It’s even funnier because LKY was a Peranakan (though he never publicly admitted it) and research has proven that Peranakans have Chinese-Malay ancestory.

Porn on the internet, soft porn in the art gallery, but fashion, that’s a no no.

Singapore would be less boring if the authorities lightened up a bit. Most of Singapore is like Disneyland: clean, controlled, artificial.

It's like a giant hospital devoted to shopping. I worked there for 3 months and hated it. No soul.
