Typical Singaporeans.


Singaporeans from all walks of life, who love to be disappointed by food reviews but still read them like the bible, are outraged about McDonald’s latest pie.

This after influencers and semi-serious websites in Singapore rated the chocolate pie a dismal nine out of 10, which is a false show of modesty.

One Singaporean, Chi Da Bian, said: “How can dis b allow? I rely on those influencers for my daily meals and I’m particularly looking forward to the chocolate pie.”

“A bloody nine out of 10? They always say everything is nice and good and great and yummy. I’m seriously having second thoughts about the pie.”

Another Singaporean, Jiak Sim Mee, said: “This actually says a lot about the chocolate pie. Its imperfect score is a sure sign that the influencers are being paid to look like they are not being paid to advertise for McDonald’s.”

Other Singaporeans noted the drastic change in editorial tone.

Hong Gan Leow said: “While It’s a pity to read such bad reviews about the pie, one has to observe their editorial tone. For instance, for their usual 100-word reviews, there are usually 30 exclamation marks and adjectives and phrases like yummilicious, moist and melt-in-mouth.”

“This time round, there’s only three exclamation marks and the word solid was used. Which, to be honest, is not a flattering word to describe a pie.”

“McDonald’s clearly needs to do better.”

Foreign influence.


Singaporeans from all walks of life, who know insubordination and foreign interference when they see it, have looked towards McDonald’s and are shaking their heads in exasperation.

This after McDonald’s relaunched the Nasi Lemak Burger on Aug. 31, 2017, after Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong specifically declared his war on diabetes in a bid to get Singaporeans not to die so early so they can continue to produce for the economy.

One Singaporean, Mai Dang Lao, said: “McDonald’s is testing the sovereignty and will of this Lee regime.”

“This is American foreign influence at its worst.”

“If this is not a dabbling in local politics, we don’t know what is.”

Other locals said PM Lee’s warning have fallen on deaf ears and more must be done to regulate fast food like how media in Singapore is regulated.

Another local, Jiak Min Kia, said: “This form of foreign influence is the worst.”

“The imperialistic nature of McDonald’s is couched in local flavours and sold to unwitting Singaporeans like it is a good thing meant to be embrace.”

“Worse, Singaporeans lap it up without thinking and allow themselves to be agents of other states.”

“And then die of diabetes, which is the very ailment the prime minister warned against, because who can produce economically for Singapore if it isn’t Singaporeans who are alive?”

Move to reduce queues at McDonald’s end up pulling down GDP growth by 1 percent, experts predict.


Thousands of Singaporeans stayed home on April 23, 2014 so that they can be the first to log into the McDonald’s website to purchase the Hello Kitty toy that launched at 11am.

This move to change the way the Hello Kitty toys are being sold is due to long queues at McDonald’s the previous times, affecting the economic growth of Singapore.

However, experts believe that the online anonymity offered through selling the toy over the Internet has emboldened the Hello Kitty buyers in Singapore to a greater extent, as even more of them engage in this sort of shameless buying behaviour.

Many reportedly feigned illness or took leave just to stay home.

Mai Dang Lao, a local, said: “Previously, I had to think twice about whether I wanted to stand in line to buy at McDonald’s because I might bump into other shameless colleagues and relatives”

“But now I take leave to stay at home and wait for 11am and quickly rush in and buy.”

“As I could not log in because of the high traffic, I took to Facebook to share my abusive views of McDonald’s instead.”

At least there was one identifiable type of meat.


Singaporeans from all walks of life and with varying levels of BMIs heaved a collective sigh of relief when it was revealed on Facebook a few days ago that McDonald’s Sausage McMuffin might have been made of lizard.

A photo showing something sticking out meant that there was actually some form of real meat inside.

Mai Dan Lao, a local fast-foodie, said: “My first reaction when I saw the so-called ‘lizard tail’ McMuffin was one of massive shock. I thought to myself: ‘Oh my god! McDonald’s actually uses real meat in their food?!'”

This helped to boost the appetite of other fast-foodies.

Keng De Ji, another fast-foodie, said: “I was always under the impression McDonald’s uses well-seasoned processed cardboard in their patties.”

McDonald’s, on the other hand, has always emphasised how well-prepared and tasty their food is.

For example, for hand-crafted authenticity of their McMuffins, McDonald’s gets a machine to knead the dough.

How else can you explain why Singaporeans are fat and under the sun for long hours?


Bishan Park McDonald’s. Siao na bei

Scenes of long queues at McDonald’s all over Singapore yesterday are signs that Singapore is doing okay, political scientists say.

The long queues were the result of Singaporeans getting in line to buy minion toys from the Despicable Me movies.

Self-styled political pundit, Eric de Yaya, said: “If there was unrest and lack of economic development, people won’t be queuing for toys. They will be queuing for rations.”

“Therefore, it is clear Singapore does not have political unrest, as people are very free.”

Singaporeans, in general, agree.

One Singaporean, Gong Ren Dang, who admitted he voted for the Workers’ Party in GE2011, said: “It is great I get to eat McDonald’s and buy toys. Thank you, Lee Kuan Yew.”

100,000 free Egg McMuffins to be snatched within hours on March 18.


McDonald’s will be giving away 100,000 free Egg McMuffins on March 18 across 100 outlets in Singapore.

Scenes of destruction, chaos, shoving and ungracious behaviour will most likely dominate the news — again — as Singaporeans from all walks of life are expected to form long queues for hours just for a freebie.

Those who are expected to show up include aunties, the middle class, the well-heeled, children and office workers who carry Prada bags and Miu Miu wallets.

Experts interviewed by New Nation say this penny-pinching phenomenon is due to a high cost of living and uncertain economic outlook.

Eric de Yaya, a self-styled political pundit who also did not get tenure, said: “I’m already standing in line.”

To whet readers’ appetites, here is an inside look into how McDonald’s Egg McMuffins are hand crafted to perfection.

1. For hand crafted authenticity, first get a machine to knead the dough.

2. The machine should be able to bake as well as a human because machines don’t suffer from PMS.

3. Once they get baked, the muffin tops should look exactly like they were made by someone in a chef’s hat and white apron who has attended at least four years of culinary school.

4. For the eggs, they are usually fried by someone who was let down by the education system and didn’t do well for ‘A’ Levels.

5. Here, another product of the education system will tenderly flip the slice of ham for $4 an hour.

6. Minimum wage? Never heard of it.

7. Assembly is still being done by other products of the education system. For now. Until it becomes automated one fine day.

8. So once you’ve collected your free Egg McMuffin, proceed to stuff it into every available orifice in your body. And get back in the queue. Again.

Singaporeans are going bonkers over McDonald’s recent decision to start charging customers for extra packets of American-style curry sauce.

In fact, the outcry has spilled out from Twitter, onto the streets, and into every McDonald’s restaurant island-wide.

Reminiscent of the Occupy-style protests, locals are sitting-in the premises of the Golden Arches to demonstrate their hatred for the excesses of Western capitalism. Organizers describe the movement as a peaceful and non-violent one.

“You are encouraged to buy a Chicken McNuggets meal and reject every offer of curry sauce to show solidarity with us,” said the movement’s leader, human rights activist-lawyer N Mani. He rambled on that curry is an evil invention from New York, where there are “vampires in Empire State Building”. Read the full story

Singaporeans mourn over the alleged death of the fast food restaurant’s curry sauce.

By Terence Lee

(Update from McD Singapore’s Facebook pageWe know many of you have come to love our signature curry sauce, and are sorry that it is temporarily unavailable. This is due to unforeseen supply issues, and we expect new stocks of curry sauce to arrive from the US by the end of next week. To all our valued customers and curry sauce lovers in Singapore, we sincerely apologise and thank you for your patience!)

RIP :(

It’s the end of the world as we know it.

All over the island, Singaporeans are devastated to find out that McDonald’s has stopped serving curry sauce.

The news first broke on Hardwarezone at 11pm yesterday, when a forumer visited a McDonald’s outlet, only to be told by the staff that they’ve run out of the unique, sweet-tasting curry sauce that has become a favorite for Singaporeans of all generations.
