Will blogger ‘Nas Daily’ retain his infectious positivity once he actually lives in Singapore?

Those of you out there who were paying attention may remember that Dr Mumbo wrote about the infectiously positive travel blogger Nuseir Yassin – or ‘Nas Daily’ for the millennials among you – last September.

Some loved the Arab-Israeli’s Facebook video, where he deemed Singapore to be “the almost perfect country” and even celebrated the country’s ‘poo water’ as an amazing achievement.

The Almost Perfect Country.

I put my heart and soul into this video. I hope you it inspires you like it inspired me. It's the story of the country that impressed me the most out of all the countries I've been to. I hope their story gets you more excited like it got me more excited.Because if they can, then we can.

And thank you to Project Nightfall and Dear Alyne for going on this journey with me.

Others hated the bombastic vlog. As a result, dear ‘ND’ faced a bit of a social media backlash here in the Lion City – from those who face the trials and tribulations of daily life in Singapore.

Undeterred though, he and his partner Alyne Tamir have announced that they are moving to Singas – in order to make the Lion City headquarters for the Nas Daily Media Company.

Apparently, they will be setting up shop next to Facebook’s office in the swanky Marina One Tower and recruiting five more people here – doubling the size of the ND team to 10.

Dr Mumbo is delighted. For Nuseir is what we in the media trade call ‘good copy’.

But can he keep up the infectious positivity once the reality of living in Singapore sinks in?

Especially, after we all learned this week that it is in fact the most expensive city in the world in which to lay your head.

Anyone seen that Lego Movie? 

We just hope the 27-year-old Nas Daily’s ‘everything is awesome’ attitude can survive the perils of the city state.

For while Dr M absolutely loves the place, it seems not everyone does – as evidenced here:
