    Singapore is a city of innovation and cleanliness. Totobobo mask is definitely innovative with its tight fit and see through plastic. It keeps the lungs “clean” from grit and grime. It is also easy to clean with its innovative plastic design.

    without a self-applied filter to prevent ingesting that which stinks, living in singapore would be unbearable.

    This is my long and boring answer to the question. I actually hope you read this. Here it goes: When the blog said that effective protection is king, it reminded me of the days of colonial Singapore under British rule. Maybe this has to do with identity of Singapore? that it was once a British colony? same with the statement about how “comfort is queen”. Since Singapore is highly urbanized and has a high number of vehicles on the road similar to Taiwan, lots of people wear masks but from what i saw in Taiwan, they don’t offer much protection so a tight sealing mask is necessary. The customization aspect of the mask reflects Singapore’s innovation and the simplicity that is required to please customers and market the product. This reflects the booming economy of Singapore and it’s status as one of the four Asian tigers. Also, the reuse and minimal waste aspect reflects Singapore’s desire for conservation. Examples include the tree conservation areas where trees above a certain height may not be cut down, the Singapore environment council, and the national environment agency which dedicates themselves to protecting nature. Also, Singapore has a compulsory health insurance plan called “Medisave” similar to the compulsory health insurance plan in Taiwan. This reflects Singapore’s desire to actually keep their citizens healthy similar to how the totobobo mask kept many people healthy.
