I’m from Singapore and honestly that chewing gum “ban” is so exaggerated and obviously written by someone who hasn’t been here. Do you think cops are going around asking to see what you’re chewing??? The only law you would be breaking with chewing gum is if you spit it onto streets (littering) or sell them. That said, we can get gum over the counter for “medical purposes” at drugstores. So there you go.
