It's not really about the country, it's about the personality. Founder of the magazine, Wei Koh, just happens to be the son of Professor Tommy Koh, one of Singapore's most well-known diplomats, former Singapore representative to the UN, and an icon of personal branding (for Singapore people anyway) since the 60s. It seems that Wei Koh and his brother Aun Koh have gone into the world of luxe publishing, as Aun Koh has just put out "The Miele Guide" to Asia's best restaurants, sort of like an Asian Michelin.
