Fads we’re fed up with in 2015

In 2015, there are trends in toys, food, fashion, as well as technologies which have become increasingly annoying over the past year. 

MustShareNews presents to you a list of 10 things we want gone by 2016. 


This traditional Japanese toy has been a hit with Singaporean youth. A kendama looks like a gavel, but with a stick emerging from the top which fits into the hole in the ball.

This hipster toy is the epitome of privileged kids in today’s society. One kendama ranges from $13 to $200.

Pricey, aren’t they? After all, you’re just paying for a block of wood.



2. Salted egg everything

Before 2015, salted egg was mainly used in dishes with crab, lobster, prawn, as well as buns.

However, in 2015, the craze for salted egg exploded. Suddenly, there were salted egg croissants, salted egg fries, and even salted egg sauce for pancakes.



This sinful treat has since then permeated many dishes.

3. Onesies

These hideous jumpsuits are such blasphemy — seeing one is quite a fashion faux pas.

Originally worn as sleepwear, people have started wearing them out onto the streets.


Okay, so these bloggers can pull it off, but let’s just admit that not everyone looks good in them.


4. Korean spicy noodles

Enter the new age of hallyu stars and the Korean wave — even the food we consume has been invaded by Korean culture.

Eating Korean spicy ramen or ramyeon is a trend of 2015 which pays tribute to yet another Korean food trend.

Many enjoyed enduring the burning sensation these noodles brought, and ended up with their faces swelling like a tomato after trying the spicy ramen.


JCube shopping mall even held a Seoul Spicy Noodle Challenge, whereby participants had to consume three different bowls of Samyang noodles at a different level of spiciness. We know Singaporeans love their food spicy — this competition attracted over 250 contestants.

5. Neko Atsume game

Cute cats? Check. Mindless game? Check.


Too kawaii.

6. SG50

Come on, people are sick of seeing the word SG50. #simisaialsosg50.

We can’t wait for SG50 to get out of our hair.



Except that we wouldn’t mind 50%  discounts.

7. Electric Scooters

Basically a one-way ticket to obesity.

These electric scooters can completely cut out exercise from Singaporeans’ lifestyle, a saviour to those who hate walking. But there’s a price to pay, of course — the scooters can range from $1000 to $2000 and above, and run on electricity.

According to Facebook page Electric Scooter, these scooters are “the future of commuting”.

And perhaps, they also mark the demise of diet plans and healthy living.

And we thought that the government was stepping up their game to promote healthy lifestyle campaigns.

8. Truffle everything

The hype about truffle infused dishes is real.

There is truffle in almost everything. Truffle fries, truffle mash potato and even truffle wanton mee. McDonald’s has even rolled out their truffle *ahem ahem* flavoured fries.

Enough liao lor. Can maintain anot?

9. Hoverboards

These babies aren’t exactly cheap — they range from $600 to $1000. Hoverboards are an invention adapted from 1985 American sci-fi adventure comedy film Back To The Future. They do not actually hover but move around on wheels and are self-balancing.

These novelties burst into Singapore’s technological scene and their demand has been growing, especially with the Christmas season nearing since it would be an ideal gift (apart from the price). 


10. Nike Roshe Run

These famous Nike Roshe shoes have been a hit.

In fact, they have become so popular that there are many fakes sold all over Singapore on apps such as Carousell.


Remember the times when having these pair of shoes made you special?

Who knows — they might become passé come 2016.

2015 in a nutshell

We’ve had enough of those ridiculous suits, gimmicky devices that will help Singaporeans put on weight, as well as the various food crazes. With 2015 coming to an end, we certainly hope to see no more of these absurd trends.
