You would rather not bring that bottle and buy a drink from your local convenience store. Data from research firm, Euromonitor international shows that Singaporeans spent $134 million on bottled water in 2015 which is 24% more than 2010.

It may not seem like much but by bringing a bottle of water with you to lunch, you won’t have the spend that $1.70 on a drink every day but by doing so, you will be able to save up more than $1,000 and pay for a short trip to Australia!
