  Cuzen uses magnets to brew you a fresh matcha in seconds Brewing matcha the traditional way can be a bit of a pain. Not only must you get the water temperature just right, you also have to spend some time whisking the matcha powder to get everything blended properly.

"Oh why people abandon their babies? We are in need of a population growth so don't abandon the babies and I'm more than happy to adopt one if the conditions are right," social media user Leong Lim said in a Facebook post.

The Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF) said in response to Reuters' questions on Wednesday that several people had enquired about adopting the baby, which was in stable condition. Police said investigations into the incident were ongoing.

While the child's birth parents, who have not been named by authorities, were mostly criticized on social media, some said more understanding was needed considering the stigma surrounding single mothers.

"We should step up efforts to support them and reduce stigma rather than judge these women and young girls who may be not far from being children themselves," said another Facebook user Abirame Subramanian.

Baby abandonment is rare in the city-state, which has a population of about 5.7 million. There were such 17 cases from 2009 to 2019, according to the MSF.
