Feeling proud to be a Singaporean on National Day? Celebrate the holiday with these distinctive products for some true local flavour.
Kiasu Stout and Singlish Ale
Yes, you certainly didn’t read wrongly. These are real-life beer names in the market, produced by local brewery Jungle Beer. Apart from Kiasu Stout, Jungle Beer's line-up of products also includes Orchard Road, a mango and orange wheat american pale ale; Quayside Coolie, which is vanilla porter beer; and Siloso Beach, a tropical steam lager that's perfect for lounging around with your mates in the hopes of catching a glimpse of the fireworks.

Shiok Skinny Wallet
So skinny, it’s shiok! The Skinny Wallet was conceptualised and crafted to show you only what's important. It was deliberately built slim so you'll be compelled to edit whatever goes in there. Apart from cash and the essential cards, maybe it's time you rethink what or who holds precedence in your life.

Ang Ku Kueh Girl Soap
Reminiscent of the old school kueh that your grandmother used to make, this soap looks good (and realistic) enough to eat! While it certainly won't satisfy your tastebuds, it sports a delicious berry scent and made with plant-based glycerine for softer, silkier skin.

The Kueh Menu
Who knew that the delicious bite-sized kueh that we sinfully indulge in hail from various parts of the region including Indonesia, Malaysia as well as China? Our local talent, Lee Xin Li, who is also a student from the National University of Singapore, initially started off this project for a Peranakan restaurant, but research brought him to discover other kueh that he previously did not know about. But we're sure your grandpop and grandmom are able to identify and rattle off the names of these sticky desserts like a pro.
