As a Singaporean, I’m acutely aware of one thing… and no it’s that Singapore’s hot af because I’m pretty sure everyone knows that. Rather, it’s the notion that…

Singaporeans are often filled with dilemmas.

Just ask my Grandpa Frank, who sits atop the toilet bowl with a thinker’s face, all while the ‘great boulders of Frank’ tumble into the ‘ocean’.

“Prawn mee or Kway Chap?” he would wonder aloud as the smell of Grandpa Frank’s homemade ‘brown bananas’ cloud the entire house. “Newspaper or TV? Teh or Milo? Aoi Sora or Maria Ozawa?”

And it’s not just my Grandpa Frank either; the majority of Singaporeans make the rookie mistake of over-deliberating on something when the answer should be pretty clear. Prawn Mee or Kway Chap? Hah, it’s obvious. I would, of course, have to go for Prawn- oh wait I just had prawns the other day. Kway Chap then- but I’m not craving for pig stuff now… erm then prawn… hmm… the calories though. Kway-

Editor: Can you just stop over-deliberating and get on with the topic?

But Boss, this is a matter of life and death. If I eat the wrong thing, I’ll regret my decision for the whole night!

Editor: If you don’t get on with the topic I’ll make sure you regret it forever.

Right point taken. So anyways guys, what I’ve been beating around the bush all introductory paragraph was to actually bring the discussion to a historic stand:

Cars or motorcycles?

Editor: Isn’t it obvious? I would, of course, go for the car- oh wait it’s kind of boring though. Motorcycle… I could die anytime. But then again I could die in a car as well; shucks motorcycles? **** this is worse than the time I had to decide between downloading Tinder or Grindr-

Well, in that case…

Why not both?

No this isn’t a prank

For the vehicle is real. Very real.

On 3 Feb 2019, Facebook page Singapore Retro Cars featured the innovative vehicle hybrid, and unsurprisingly it went viral.

“I know this isn’t a car but my friend spotted this motorcycle modified with the Suzuki Swift’s rear end that’s quite unique,” the caption reads.

Other posts have also commented on the hybrid.

Though some have pointed out the handicapped sticker at the back, which suggests that the rider is disabled.

Which might prove to be true, considering how the vehicle has actually been featured on news articles before, as a wheelchair motorcycle.

After all, the F gives it away: not that F. I mean the plate: any vehicle that starts with F is for motorbikes, while private cars start with S.

The origin of it all

According to one such feature on news website AsiaOne, graphic designer Lim Teck Mong is the ‘father’ of this car-motorcycle brainchild.
