Telegram is gaining popularity as the top messenger app amongst Singaporeans. Aside from the awesome stickers, what we love most about it are the channels and bots created by Singaporeans and designed to make our lives easier!
Be updated with the latest promo codes, bus timings, train breakdowns and even the daily life of our Prime Minister!
Here are some of our favourite Telegram channels and bots that you should join.
You can also download our adorable HappyBag & Friends sticker pack!
1. Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong
Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong is already one of the top politicians to follow on Facebook and Instagram. Still remember the owl in the office debacle?
Of course, PM Lee has taken advantage of technology to connect with Singaporeans through the Telegram messenger app as well. This official Telegram channel is managed by the Prime Minister’s Office and provides updates, a few personal anecdotes and even some awesome stickers.

2. SG MRT Updates
The MRT is the most convenient way to get around Singapore but it also has its down moments – delays, signalling faults, flooding, collisions and lightning strikes… This channel makes sure you’re updated with all of those delays in real time! Know if you should wait at home, plan an alternate route or if you might be late for an exam!
