  3. I think it’s the country.

    The laws in Singapore are stricter, and it’s considerably like the slimming pills case a few years back. Cause, it gets checked every few years, once the check is cleared, they cut down/change the ingredients used, etc.

    Funny thing. After hearing about the case, my mum went to get a bottle of Ribena. 😀
