Picture yourself sitting for your finals, with 5 minutes remaining on the clock to complete your paper. Needless to say, the pressure is on. Brain farts and losing your trains of thought are obstacles that are becoming all too real. In this episode of Singaporeans Try, we recreated the same scenario – but on steroids: we took the 5 seconds challenge!

“Tick tock, tick tock…” The game is simple: within 5 seconds, participants are required to list 3 things under a category given by the host.
