How to write about social/political issues. The main thing that used to get me writing was anger or frustration. A Minister would be quoted saying something that seemed stupid to me, and I would take to my keyboard in anger. How could this person who’s being paid so much more money than me, being given so much more responsibility than me, be so obtuse? But with the benefit of hindsight I have to discourage that sort of approach. I think the anger is legitimate, and you should write angrily, but you shouldn’t publish just yet. You should edit with a cool head. – avoid name-calling, avoid defamation, ask questions, be curious, not angry, keep it as simple as you can

What’s the Singaporean dating scene like? There’s probably not one single scene, but many different scenes, fragmented primarily along socioeconomic lines. The very rich do not date the very poor. And then there are some interesting complexities like ethnicity. I find all of this very interesting because so few people are willing to talk about it. I like talking about things that people don’t like talking about. Are Singaporean men bad at dating? If so, why? Reference Charisma on Command, Poached, reddit, etc. Entitlement – see Poached (SG guys are losers, still losers, Don Juans of NTU, loser pigs)
