Although we may technically be a school press, we at Raffles Press constantly seek to expand our horizons beyond Raja Block and the Marymount gate to venture into unexplored territory. This is why our journalists have taken full advantage of the easing of community measures to head out into various corners of Singapore over the past few months.
We are proud to present to you TouRIsts — a special edition in which you can find reviews of trails, parks, museums, dining establishments, and everything in between. We hope you will have as much fun reading as we did writing.

I myself am guilty of using this as a conversation starter. However, this is a bad one that usually gets me nowhere in developing a stronger relationship with the other party because when the same question is thrown my way, I simply answer: I don’t know.
