One Twitter account. A different person from Singapore each week, every week.
Rotation curation projects started off with Sweden’s official twitter account (@sweden). Since then, similar accounts have blossomed for nations and cities all over the world.
This is Singapore’s version.
We want to show that Singapore is not just a place where chewing gum is banned and graffiti gets you caned. We want to tell stories of Singapore and Singaporeans; the lives those who live in Singapore, and of Singaporeans based overseas.
So join us. Talk to us. Curate with us. Madness? No. This is Singapore – hello from Singapore.
Next on @hellofrmSG is @SrimathiCeline, who made good on a promise a while back to host for a week!
Here’s a bit more about herself as a taster:
I’m a single mom. I also care for elderly father, 2 cats and a dog. I was accused of being a rascist but don’t give a flying fuck. I’m very kiasu and drive myself crazy at times because of it. While at the other spectrum, I simply don’t care. Learning to find the middle ground. It’s a daily battle.
Coming up on we have , who comes recommended by former curator .
She comes with a varied list of interests and has this to say about herself:
I’m a girl who loves motorsports, photography, architecture, tea, solo travels, war documentaries and a slight obsession for John Mayer.
Looking forward to hearing more over the coming Easter weekend!
The account nearly went dry again so I’m hugely relieved to be able to welcome who’s coming up on next week! He describes himself as:
20. singaporean son serving his country outside his country. Loves animals, movies, and conversation. Can’t wait for school to start.
Also the brother of prata and cake-influencer , I’m certain there’ll be some heartwarming displays of brotherly love on Twitter as well. Stay tuned!
Coming up on is , who tweeted me to sign up whilst I was behind the Great Firewall. It was incredibly frustrating to have Twitter taunting me with an @ notification showing the first line of the tweet but with no means to read or respond!
While ‘s Twitter account is usually “90% memes and shitposting, 10% half-baked rants”, he promises to share more about photography during his curation so give it up for an interesting week!
Our next curator is @sunflowerscent, who also came forward the other week to answer the clarion call to host .
A neurosurgeon wannabe and life sciences undergraduate, @sunflowerscent has this to say:
I really want to advocate for brain cancer and brain tumour patients, me being a brain tumor patient myself. Also, to talk about neuroscience research and support groups for brain cancer/tumor patients in Singapore. And I have a dog. :p
A big welcome to @sunflowerscent and stay tuned for more!
First of all, a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who responded to the call for more curators for , be it by signing up or spreading the word. Your support is critical to the continued success of and is very much appreciated!
One of the people who answered this call for help is our next curator, @salleh_nadiah, who came recommended by . Nadiah is a nurse and has this to share:
Being a nurse is more than you see on television. We are as normal as anyone but maybe a little weird in thinking.
Our SG Twittersphere is hardly conventional either, so let’s see how weird things get!
Next up on we have , a recovering lawyer and MHA graduate who works in oil and gas. Based in Lausanne, he’s interested in hotel development, gadgets and dictatorial politics.
With such an interesting bio I hope you’re as keen as I am to hear more from him this week!
