Faith and religion always fascinated me. I was curious if there were any interesting profiles surrounding religious faiths that the mainstream media has yet to uncover.

Like every other resourceful reporter, I went onto Reddit to search for answers. Turns out, this phenomenon exists in Singapore too.
