Swiping right or becoming a private hire car driver are some of the methods Singaporeans have been utilising to get into the occasional dalliance.

However, you can probably try something else.

Merchandise shop Knackstop is lending a hand by pulling out all the stops (like before) with its range of lowkey suggestive gifts that scream, "This is how I use public transport to pick you up!"


1. Notebook with colouring pages: S$20

Lowkey romantic pick up line: “No distance is too great to be with you, not even Singapore’s longest bus route.”

What the pick-up line really means: “You, me -- we are like colour pencils in this notebook life. And you fill my heart with the colours of the rainbow across the sky.” *swoons*

Suitable for: Confessions. People who are in for the long run.

The real fun fact: Bus 858 is Singapore’s longest bus route, running from Woodlands Interchange to Changi Airport and back (a whopping 73.4km).


2. 4 sets of fun fact adhesive tape: S$9 each

Lowkey romantic pick up line: “Love as deep as Bencoolen MRT.”

What the pick-up line really means: “I hope you would stick around for a long time.” or, “Do you wanna washi a movie with me?”

Suitable for: People who want to explore the depths of real love. Commitment ring on a budget.

The real fun fact: Downtown Line's Bencoolen MRT station is really 43 metres underground.


3. Thermal flasks (2 designs): S$23 each

Lowkey romantic pick up line: "You are older but not as old as Singapore's oldest bus stop."

What the pick-up line really means: "I have the hots for you."

Suitable for: Anyone older you still have the hots for. If not, the perfect flask to store herbal drinks brewed with love for your grandparents too.

The real fun fact: The oldest bus stop in Singapore is at Old Choa Chu Kang Road. It has been around since the 1970s.


Knackstop Fun Facts products range

These Knackstop Fun Facts products range are based on designs inspired by the colouring entries submitted by the public for Land Transport Authority’s Colour Your Ride contest last year.

Of course, all these items are available at the Knackstop flagship store (Details below).

But if buying a gift for someone to express your love isn’t really your thing, you can try to win it, which obviously also shows your effort.

How to take part?

Spot all the Knackstop items hidden in the 360° Facebook photo on the LTA Facebook Page and Instagram (@LTAsg) and point them out in the comments section. Contest runs from March 25 to 31, 2017.
