A growing Covid-19 cluster in Singapore has recently brought KTVs under the spotlight.

As authorities clamp down on lounges and hostesses operating illegally during the pandemic, Reddit user Eagleshoes made an observation.

He noticed how KTVs tend to have "really stupid names" and that got the ball rolling.

The Redditor created an intriguing online quiz that tests whether one can tell the names of condominiums and KTV lounges apart.

While many have acknowledged that it's a pretty challenging quiz, a Redditor suggested how to up the game with multiple-choice questions. 

Won over yet? Give the quiz a go and find out just how lupsup (Cantonese for sleazy) you really are.
