About the Author
Felix Cheong has never considered himself a funny writer. Until the Singapore Siu Dai stories hit him in the head, he was known more as a writer of poetryand fiction. He is a lecturer in journalism and a weekly columnist with news website The Middle Ground. Nothing surprised him as much as the satirical short, short stories that came together in a rush in Singapore Siu Dai. And he hopes they’ll surprise you too!
“It’s like reading five years’ worth of social media’s greatest posts about Singaporeans: addictive, and without ads!”
—Otto Fong, author of Sir Fong’s Adventures In Science
“Felix writes great satire that hits home. Whether it’s about compliant, obedient Singaporeans who decide to have less or more children according to the national agenda or about senior citizens who struggle to keep up with the constant changes, or the complaint culture that is prevalent. He unravels the good, bad and ugly side of life in Singapore with humour, peppered with a dash of cynicism.”
—James Suresh, bestselling author and co-creator of comic icon ‘Mr Kiasu’
