February 20, 2024 — An unexpected twist happened during his Singapore visit. English pop sensation Ed Sheeran turned heads and delighted fans by exploring local culture and food. He did this hours before his sold-out concert. The “Shape of You” singer is known for his soulful music and down-to-earth personality. He went on a culinary adventure across Bugis and Lau Pa Sat. He was joined by live streamer and content creator Denise Teo, also known as Supercatkei.

The day began at Tarik, a cosy café in Arab Street. Sheeran was introduced to teh tarik, a beloved Malaysian and Singaporean hot milk tea known for its dramatic pouring. Under Tarik’s staff, Sheeran mastered the tarik’s signature “pull.” He impressed onlookers and earned commendations for his skill. The singer expressed his enjoyment of the drink, adding a local flavour to his Singapore experience.

The journey continued to Lau Pa Sat, an iconic hawker centre in Singapore. There, Teo introduced Sheeran to a variety of local foods, including satay, kueh pie tee, laksa, rojak, and the classic chicken rice. Sheeran’s encounter with Laksa was special. He described the spicy noodle soup as “banging,” showing his love for Singapore’s rich food.

Sheeran’s exploration of Singapore wasn’t limited to its food. In a post on his Instagram page, he shared his admiration for Marina Bay Sands, humorously referring to it as the “building that looks like a big boat.” This candid moment showed Sheeran’s interest in Singapore’s landmarks. It showed his eagerness to connect with the city beyond the concert stage.

Denise Teo had the rare chance to guide Sheeran through his Singaporean adventure. She shared her excitement and nervousness about representing Singapore. She aimed to show the best of Singaporean culture and hospitality. She approached the task with joy and a sense of duty. Teo’s talks with Sheeran were about their first meeting and their chats about Singaporean life. They included the concept of BTO (build-to-order) flats. They painted a picture of a real and curious visitor, keen to learn about local life.

Teo’s reflections on her day with Sheeran revealed the singer’s genuine nature. He is interested in personal stories and local customs. They discussed family life. They learned about Singapore’s unique housing policies. Sheeran’s engagement with Teo and his surroundings showed his desire to connect with fans more deeply.

Ed Sheeran visited Singapore. He explored the local culture and cuisine. His visit left a lasting impression on fans and residents. He showed a willingness to dive into the Singaporean experience. This showed that, beyond his musical talent, he has a curiosity and respect for the cultures he encounters on his global tours. He took the stage later that evening. It was clear that Sheeran’s day in Singapore enriched not only his understanding of the city but also his bond with his Singaporean fans.
