If you could pick an object to represent Singapore, what would it be?

If you could pick an object to represent Singapore, what would it be?

Ok, 25 items isn’t bad. Some items were totally off my consciousness until others mentioned it. Like the Singapore-made Ultimax 100 Section Assault Weapon (SAW). Some objects — like the ‘rotan’ (i.e. cane) — encapsulates so many things past and present: parental methods in bringing up children, school discipline, criminal code and the penal system, a national event (remember Michael Fay?). … If there’s a representative number of people creating such a list, what I’m really, really interested is to analyse the choice of items on the combined list. The list could reflect the success of certain national brands or campaigns. Missing items might shed light on what else we might need to do (e.g. what if no artwork or artist make it to anyone’s list?) Analysing an aggregation of lists might reveal the psyche of individual citizens. And quite likely our psyche as a nation.
