Singaporeans were recently slightly perturbed at the news on Mar. 16 that Malaysia was going under lockdown.
Eggs seemed to be a popular item that day.
Of course it was later revealed that transport of supplies would go on even with the lockdown.
Eggs however aren't an exclusive import item from Malaysia.
In that vein, Minister for Trade and Industry Chan Chun Sing welcomed some shelled visitors at Changi Airport today.
In a Facebook post, Chan talked about a receiving a "very special cargo - more than 300,000 eggs meant for domestic consumption".
He also talked about the diverse sourcing options for eggs we have cultivated.
Chan expressed his gratitude to Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources (MEWR), the Singapore Food Agency (SFA) and SATS for helping bring the eggs in so quickly.
As the visitors were specially flown in, Mothership.sg understands that they are from an Asian country, one of the 11 source countries approved to export eggs to Singapore.
The eleven countries are Australia, Denmark, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, Spain, Sweden, South Korea, Thailand, the United States, and Ukraine.
