Welcome to the inaugural Redwire Awards 2015, where we honour the best of the best in their respective arenas, for better or for worse. As we wrap up 2015 and sing Auld Lang Syne, let’s not forget the people who’ve made this such a memorable roller-coaster ride of a year! Scandal of the Year: BreadTalk Kong Hee was a fraud and Sun Ho couldn’t sing to save her ass. Yeah, we knew...

Singaporeans are truly an “everything also complain” lot. Even after a free swimming pool drops from heaven for them to use for free, Ang Mo Kio residents apparently still aren’t satisfied and have vented their frustration online. The pool was a result of flash ponding on Saturday (5 Dec). But given the overwhelmingly ungrateful nature of Ang Mo Kio dwellers, the privilege of a free pool was...

Renowned xiao long bao restaurant chain Din Tai Fung possibly takes its feedback very seriously – especially when it comes from Singapore ministers. Two years after current Manpower Minister Lim Swee Say elaborated on how wonderful the restaurant’s’ toothpicks are that he can’t stop at one (when it comes to taking half a box and putting them in his pocket before leaving), it...

It appears that the only chap in Singapore who has the gall to refuse a handshake with our Prime Minister… is a robot! The cheeky metal creature spurned PM Lee at the opening ceremony of Fusionopolis Two yesterday. One of the 30 percent of robots, perhaps? Strangely enough, the robot was even programmed to greet PM Lee in his own voice. Just shows that you can curtail freedom of speech, but not...

Singapore Idol wannabes, what happens if you forget the lyrics on live TV? Faint lah – just like what this Romanian Barbie did on the X-Factor. Zero stars for the singing, but we give her a 10 out of 10 for acting.     Sabrina Fabian collapsed on the Romanian X Factor stage while singing the Barbie Girl song. Barely seconds into starting the song, Fabian forgot the words. Taunted...

Indonesia has been thanked over 1 million times for the haze problem affecting Southeast Asia, if a certain satirical website is to be believed. Dubbed “Thank You Indonesia for the Clean Air,” the website allows you to press a button to show your appreciation for the 11 months of haze-free air (and 1 month of haze) that Jusuf Kalla believes Indonesia delivers to the region. Because just...

Uncles and Aunties in Toa Payoh probably thought this fella was possessed, seeing how we’re still in the Hungry Ghost month. But Arthero Lim was on a mission – to create an epic Hokkien MTV that would draw attention to the CPF dilemma facing Singaporeans. Dressed in the Singapore Democratic Alliance’s super-bright-green, the film producer/artistic director drew many curious stares,...

KEV: Spotted this picture showing foreign workers in a van, which wouldn’t seem out of the ordinary except that there was a horde of PAP flyers stacked up together with them. The flyers show the candidates for the PAP’s East Coast GRC team, including Mr Lim Swee Say and Ms Jessica Tan. Doesn’t look like the flyers are headed for the rubbish dump, so I assume the foreign workers are...

XUYUN: PAP fails if Singapore fails without PAP. Singapore will fail without the PAP. Who put that idea into us and turned it into a self fulfilling prophecy? And if we believe that scenario, Singapore would certainly fail. Because we would resign to our fate and stop exploring other alternatives to succeed apart from the PAP-format. It would be a dent to the pride which is boosted by the likes of...

As the September 11 General Election draws near, there’s bound to be more cow beh cow bu-ing about ministers’ salaries. After all, they draw a million bucks a year – amongst the highest in the world! An MP draws S$15,000 a month, meaningthey make less than peanuts lah so no point cow beh-ing them. For those who intend to cow beh PM Lee and friends all the way to the bank, here’s...

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...

No folks, Singapore’s favourite general election Returning Officer, Mr Yam Ah Mee, will NOT be back for GE2015. This year, it’s Energy Market Authority Chief Executive Ng Wai Choong’s turn to make or break hearts, persuant to Section 49, Sub-Section 7E, Paragraph A of the Parliamentary Elections Act. Mr Yam became a celebrity overnight, after he read out the results of the 2011...

A rose by any other name would smell as sweet, but a former president spelled any other way will make Singaporeans pretty angry! That’s what’s getting our goat now, over the recent embarrassing mistake involving SG50 commemorative notes, where Singapore’s first president Yusof Ishak’s name was misspelled not once, but TWICE in the packaging. Ah, but “Yusok Ishak”...
