Singapore Superior

It seems in Singapore the type of deodorant you use reveals your national identity and your country's developmental status.

Whilst travelling through rectently, I tried to purchase a crystal deodorant stone.
One pharmacy assistant's eyebrows raised.

'Oh no', she said. 'We are advanced here. We use roll-on deodorants.
You will only find those sorts of deodorants in Malaysia. We are far more developed.'

How snobby! And nevermind that the crystal works a whole lot better and is without the irritating aluminium.

Interestingly, the Thai also produces it's own crystal which, presumably in the eyes of the Singaporeans, shows their lack of development and/or class, too.
