This kid might have flunked his Mandarin assignment, but he’d certainly get full marks for creative thinking and problem-solving! It’s a testament to the effective of Singapore’s bilingual policy, looking at how the young chap synergised English and Mandarin on this hanyu pinyin assignment. But before you laugh at this, Chinese fellas, how many do you know ah?   ...

Singapore Press Holdings is raising the prices for some of the newspapers in its stable starting from today, and that price hike has rankled some dog owners. They say that their pooches rely on those papers to use the potty, and the increase in prices will directly affect them. Said Mr Tan Wee Wee: “I bring ST to the loo because the paper is thick enough to last my session doing business. Then,...

When people say don’t f*k with Micky Mouse, they mean don’t f*k with Mickey Mouse. This unsuspecting driver thought he could get away with confronting a van driver and giving him an earful, but an a**hole mouse and his pals in the back of the van weren’t having any of it! With more incidences of road rage taking place in Singapore nowadays, drivers better pick the right fellas to...

When you think of military training, were you thinking of something more like that picture above? Unfortunately in Singapore, this is the reality. For MALE soldiers: In an embarrassing gaffe, the Singapore Armed Forces published this photo of its centre where recruits undergo Basic Military Training on its Facebook page. Someone must have found it awe-inspiring and decided to show it off to Singapore...

It looks like our firefighters aren’t just quick to pounce when it comes to fighting flames and saving lives. Now they’ve gone and taken the mickey out of the armed forces, with this picture of a grinning recruit, and a caption that leaves little to the imagination as to why it was put up just yesterday. And the humour hasn’t been lost on netizens. Comparatively, some new army BMT-enlistee...

Turning boys into men aside, the army has inadvertently turned one of its own national service recruits into Singapore’s very own version of Grumpy Cat! The honest and unabashed look of sian-ness has turned him into an online sensation overnight, after the army put up that picture you see above on its Facebook page as part of its photo gallery showing Basic Military Training enlistment. Clearly,...

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,...
