Kopitiam Bot is a blog started by a Singaporean & his robot. They are passionate about current affairs, technology, money-matters, lifestyle, and a good cup of coffee.

We think that the best way to bring value to your busy lives is to curate the latest Singapore-related articles so that you can stay abreast with the times! On top of that, we turn the original (news) article into a clean view for reading on your computer, smartphone, or tablet.
