From the playfully satirical pen of Catherine Lim comes the wild, weird and wacky world of O Singapore! This is modern day Singapore where the campaigns and the directives of the unremittingly competent leadership come face to face with the undeniably human fads, foibles and follies of the Singaporean people. A world where public policy and private life collide. Using some of the traits which Singaporeans have good naturedly identified themselves with - materialism, money-mindedness, 'Kiasuism'(calculating, self-protecting behaviour) and 'Humsubism'(a brand of lecherousness said to be peculiar to Chinese males) as focal points, Catherine Lim takes us through the dizzying whirl of these merry collisions with consummate wit and comic inventiveness.
