Born and bred in Singapore, I’ve come to summarise my life here as one that’s tainted with a combination of constant lethargy, frantic worrying and inescapable hunger. And I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one feeling that way.
After all, things like ‘deadlines’, ‘examinations’, ‘audits’, ‘delayed train rides’, and ‘office politics’ tend to strike a nerve. Fancy a platform to vent out all that pent up pressure, frustration and anger? Here’s an exclusive look at Southeast Asia’s first rage room that has recently opened its doors in Singapore.
The Fragment Room can be found on the ever busy Balestier Road and it provides customers with a much needed platform to let loose. Forget anger management classes or the cliche drama scenes where actors scream at the top of their lungs at East Coast Beach.
All you need to do is drop by The Fragment Room for some hard-hitting and smashing action (literally).
Starting at $38, The Fragment Room offers customers packages with crates of breakables that include plates, cups, vases and other electronic appliances. Most of the breakables were originally en route to the scrapyard or for recycling, and the company bought them over.
You can even top up for a la carte items, such as the Supreme bricks or to smash stuff with the Supreme crowbar. If you just got dumped, you may even want to consider sending some of your ex’s stuff over.
White protective coveralls, cut-proof gloves and helmets with full face masks are provided to prevent you from getting harmed in the process. You can even top up $19 to break things in style – wearing the YEEZY 950 boots.
You can only equip yourself with a baseball bat, but should you top up an additional $28, you get to wield that Supreme crowbar.
With a simple, contemporary and grey-washed interior, The Fragment Room only has two 110 square feet rooms for customers to blow off some steam. We recommend booking online lest you get disappointed and add to your rage.
Customers need to sign an indemnity form before being permitted to gear up.
Discarded items such as printers, monitors and rice cookers, are add-ons that require an additional fee. Otherwise, you’ll be dealing with several types of glassware, such as wine glasses or beer bottles.
Imagine going full-on berserk on your ex’s items and having them smashed into smithereens. Now that’s satisfying.
Or perhaps it was your company’s pathetic photocopying machine that never worked or your boss’s laptop that never seemed to stop sending emails in the late of the night. One thing’s for sure though – they deserve a good old beating.
There’s even a Bluetooth speaker situated in the room where you can connect your phone and groove to your favourite playlist while destroying things.
Albeit slightly costly, The Fragment Room does provide an element of fun and intense stress relief that Singapore’s been missing. I entered with a burgeoning angst and left somewhat appeased.
I guess this is what we can call new-age anger therapy.
