For better or worse, we are here again at the end of another year. To help us sum up some of the most talked topics amongst Singaporeans in 2016, we would like to bring your attention to the works by Mr Guay Chong Kian (45 years old), creative doodle artist behind the Facebook Fan Page SemiSerious. Many of his cartoons represented the emotions of folks in Singapore over controversial issues in Singapore but spun in a slightly funnier perspective so that people can laugh over it and release some of their pent-up frustrations.
