50 Things to Love about Singapore
As Singapore marks 50 years of independence, The Straits Times (ST) has put together a book about love. This intimate study of the things we know and love about Singapore is written by some of ST’s most authoritative beat reporters. It is a dossier of modern Singapore halfway through her first century, an often surprising composite portrait of the little quirks, incongruities and rhythms of life in Singapore, which we chortle, ruminate and worry over, with familial affection but sometimes also exasperation.

It delves into the ironies of nanny state policies and political instincts that die hard among rulers and ruled alike, pricey cars and real estate, a land-scarce city which prizes greenery to the point of fashioning vertical gardens, Singapore’s prowess at the most oddball sports and penchant for setting all manner of world records, her own brand of guided multi-racialism, her citizens’ preference to complain rather than protest, the fast-growing global cult that is Singapore maths, and the skilful codeswitching that makes it so natural for Singaporeans to eat across many cultural and culinary cost divides.But enduring love is not blind. The writers do not flinch from looking at where Singapore is showing her age and what she has had to leave behind in the quest for her next edge.There is much to love about Singapore at 50. But this has been no easy ask-noquestions, take-her-as-she-is love.

café | sg: A Cafe Lover’s Guide to Singapore
Singapore’s food scene is renowned for its raucous hawker centres and world-class gourmet restaurants, but in recent years it is its cosmopolitan café industry that has been charting a caffeine-fuelled course to take over the country. The island is now bursting at the seams with dozens of coffee spots, from gleaming industrial-chic java joints in the centre of town to hole-in-the wall hipster hangouts dotting nearly all residential neighbourhoods. Even the city’s local kopi stalwarts are enjoying a resurgence, with millennials newly discovering the coffee houses that once provided their grandparents with butter-enriched brews with which to wash down their kaya toast and eggs.

café | sg: A Café Lover’s Guide to Singapore, the first book of its kind here, offers a timely snapshot of this java zeitgeist sweeping the nation. This handy guide profiles 50 of the best-known and best-hidden cafés on the island, all providing their own java juices to make Singapore the city that never sleeps. Written by award-winning, coffee-loving young
journalists from The Straits Times newsroom, this volume is guaranteed to give readers a caffeine high. Accompanying the succinct but richly detailed descriptions of each café are artistic photos as well as helpful information such as price guides, websites, opening hours, addresses and walking directions from the nearest MRT station.

Published by Straits Times Press, café | sg: A Café Lover’s Guide to Singapore will be launched this year at the very first coffee-centric festival celebrating Singapore’s unique café culture.

Foul! The Inside Story of Singapore Match Fixers
A few years ago, Fifa’s then head of security, Chris Eaton, announced that Singapore “(seemed) to have an academy of match fixers”. This was followed by Europol’s revelation that 680 football matches worldwide had been fixed with strong roots to a Singapore-based syndicate.
