The multimedia journalist from CNBC who has 660,000 followers on TikTok and 100,000 subscribers on his YouTube channel, shared his experiment on TikTok on 24 October.

He was seen in the video leaving his laptop at a random Starbucks outlet without “telling anyone to watch it”, before leaving to grab lunch elsewhere.

He then shared some tidbits about Singapore’s crime rates, saying that we went 250 days in a row without common crime last year.

Uptin then cited how honesty and fairness are a big part of Singapore’s culture, and that because “basic needs are met,” people don’t resort to crime.

He also added that “you will never see a homeless person here”.

he then added that another reason for the low crime rate in Singapore is surveillance, as there are cameras everywhere protecting against crimes, and cited the “crazy high” consequences for stealing.

In the later part of the video, he returned to the Starbucks outlet where he left his laptop an hour ago; lo and behold, his laptop was still sitting there, untouched.
