“Pussy” is an energy drink. “Pussy” is also a cat. And “pussy” is also… if you don’t know, you’re too young and should be having a talk with your lao peh. Now some enthusiastic marketeers have taken our Cardboard Mata standees, a bit too far in their bid to ride on his popularity. Like those “pussy” fellas above. Elsewhere in Yishun, some siao langs have concocted a whole new...

“You’re not a cardboard mata, you’re a terrorist. That’s cos you’re da bomb, babe.” We hope no one has used such a pick-up line on police Inspector Estrina Ang before or Sergeant Victoria Hay, because we hope at least one of us here will be the first to do it (hint hint ma’ams, you’ll know us by our pick-up line). Now, none of here tend to find any Home...

Our dear friend Cardboard Mata is believed to have escaped unharmed, but the same can’t be said for a switch box in the generator room of Tanglin Police Divisional Headquarters, which is co-located with Kampong Java Neighbourhood Police Centre. It caught fire on Saturday evening. The fire was contained within the room and put out by the Singapore Civil Defence Force using one water jet within...

We’ve all seen Crime Watch at some point or another, where cops are shown solving real local crimes in the half-hour TV crime series. Or even shows like Triple Nine (the good old days of hot cop Wong Li-Lin and her occasional bra-less antics). But how many real-life Matas get a full 3.12 minute short film/video commercial? This guy did – our dearly beloved crime-fighting friend Cardboard...

People in Singapore don’t trust the police. That’s plainly seen in our recent poll over the new police body-worn cameras. And probably rightly so too, given the number of gaffes our officers get themselves embroiled in. But the one officer we can trust to uphold the law come hell or high water? Of course, our dear friend, Cardboard Mata. Here’s why he should refuse most of those bumbling...

The government does not seem to have learnt any lesson from the Little India riot in Dec 2013 which disgraced the Singapore Police Force (SPF). During the riot, our men in blue were forced into a retreat, police cars were stoned, overturned and burnt. At the Little India COI, Police Commissioner (CP) Ng Joo Hee confirmed the size of the SPF has not kept pace with the population increase and said police...

A Carousell user has been spotted selling knuckle dusters online. There’s only one problem – you aren’t allowed to possess these weapons in Singapore. The seller, using the moniker “localsgdealer” has made 4 postings on the online platform, with each knuckle duster being sold for S$45. And it seems that this black market trader has already gotten a following. The seller is apparently...

How’s this for a true blue incorruptible cop? Assistant Superintendent of Police Chan Wai Hoong not only rejected a S$10,000 bribe, but arrested the woman who was trying to cash in his face. The incident last Thursday afternoon. ASP Chan and his team of officers from Central Police Division were conducting enforcement operations at Middle Road when they conducted a check on a 42-year-old woman. During...

So you think you know who you want to vote for, and maybe why you want to vote for the bugger. But that isn’t enough. You got to keep to the script to make sure your vote gets through. Otherwise instead of voting some Ah Kow into parliament, you might anyhow mark the Ah Neow instead! Here’s 6 things that you got to know as we head into General Election 2015! (1) X Marks the Spot, and ONLY...

Dramatic footage of perhaps an overly-dramatised MRT encounter. The last we saw in the video involving an angry ang moh verbally abusing a local teen for wearing a shirt that said “I’m F*cking Special”, the man who stepped forward to defend the teen and the angry ang moh were asked by police to step out of the train.   The video of the encounter went viral online, and MRT Abang...

If this was a watch fake, it wouldn’t get a AAA grading, that’s for sure. This PRC man who supposedly lives in Shenzhen said that with this fake NRIC, he can find a job anywhere in Singapore. But, the forged ID card is so full full of flaws that even Cardboard Mata wouldn’t tricked! Look at the serial number on the NRIC – the “S6963118A” at the start denotes the...

He was stripping, showering and changing clothes at the staircase landing near the washing bay of a public carpark next to Bedok Point. He was oblivious to the fact that passers-by could see him. What the “public carpark bather” didn’t know was  some who could see him were busy snapping pictures too. This photograph was apparently sent to online news website Stomp. Singapore already...

  Those Malaysia drug deaths are “scars in your life”, Mr Iqbal Ameer? You must be joking. What a big joke you and your Future Musical Festival organiser cronies have turned out to be. Knowing full well Singapore’s tough stance on drugs, you tried to hold a concert here with a long history of drug-related shenanigans. And then complain when your two applications were rejected...

This school belle turned seductress performed a striptease, amongst other lewd acts, and sent the video to her boyfriend. The couple had been chatting online, when the boy pleaded to see her in the new, so she put up the show to appease his desire. But things evenutally turned sour, and when they broke up, the boy uploaded the video of her performance on the internet. What a way to totally bastard...
