Hossan Leong: Singapore Boy

“Any ACS boys? All grow up to become con-men … I should know, I’m one.”

I wrote and filmed Hossan Leong for an interview with Hossan’s one of Singapore’s funniest comedians and he has some of the strongest and funniest insights into our society.

The crowd laughs because it’s funny. More importantly, they know it’s true. That’s Hossan Leong for you -- the “Singapore boy” who turns mundane observations into side-splitting jokes.

Chupitos: Interactive Shots Bar

Billed as an “interactive shots bar”, Chupitos, hopes to corner the “by-the-way, let’s grab a shot before going to the disco” niche. It’s cosy, and the best part about it are their innovative shots.

The bar’s run by two lovely ladies, Cherilyn and Jamie, who won the Martell VSOP Ultimate Startup Space Contest. That gives them a rent-free space for six months and S$20,000 seed money to start up their bar.

Or the Milo Godzilla which comes in a milo coated shot glass. It’s milky and alcoholic – but I really don’t see how we’re going to lick the milo powder off the glass.

One of the bar’s highlights would be the Mister Jay, the fire-flairing bartender who hails from the Philippines with his bag of cheeky magic tricks. He’s a fun chap, especially with the ladies. But then, who wouldn’t love a man who makes them laugh?

If Chupitos in Singapore is anything like the hole-in-the-wall shooter bar in Spain, then I’ll loving this place for some time to come.

Chupitos is at #01-02B Clarke Quay, 3C River Valley Road.
