- About the Author
You’ve asked for it, we’ve heard you and here it is. The whole Singapore Siu Dai experience, in one packaging. Savour the digs at the government. Laugh at our oddball Singaporean-isms. Felix serves out all these, and more, with his brand of sharp observations, crisp language and in-your-face humour.

For Singapore Siu Dai: The SG Conversation in A Cup:
“Tantalising morsels of Singapore life — some sweet, some tart, some which bite back. Die-die must buy!”
—Colin Goh, creator, TalkingCock.com and director, Singapore Dreaming
For Singapore Siu Dai 2: The SG Conversation Upsize!:
“The chatter, mutterings, moans and groans you hear every day on this crowded island? Felix Cheong filters them through the coffee sock and serves up a distilled and compact punch of sharp observations on the real Singapore Conversation.”
—Benjamin “Mr Miyagi” Lee
For Singapore Siu Dai 3: The SG Conversation Dabao!:
“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
