A Feel Good Read: Chicken Soup For The Singapore Soul

As of January last year, the ‘Chicken Soup for the Soul’ series has spawned over 165 titles from Chicken Soup for the Mother’s Soul to Chicken Soup for the Prisoner’s Soul to Chicken Soup for the Ocean Lover’s Soul. So perhaps it was only a matter of time before this republic made it to the list making it the first Asian country to have its own Chicken Soup title. Featuring contributors like Ambassador-At-Large at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Tommy Koh, Singapore’s No. 1 golfer Mardan Mamat and founder of the now defunct One Ninety Nine chain Nanz Chong Komo, Chicken Soup for the Singapore Soul is a collection of fluid stories that are comforting and inspirational in a distinctly local fashion. We brew some hot soup in The Living Room with contributors Nanz Chong, Dr Tan Thiam Chye, Jimmy Yap and editor Leong Ching


Ain’t it supposed to read “Chicken Soup for the Singaporean’s Soul”?

And to think it’s proudly printed on the cover of the book and displayed islandwide. So many contributors and editors and nobody noticed the grammatical incorrectness (irony intended) of it?!
