Wow oh oh… it’s Nathalie Loh! Natty’s been featured in magazines like FHM and Urban (so she’s probably too good for more than half of us reading this). She adores music and fashion, so brush up on those if you’re keen on brushing up on anything else. For now, enjoy. All photos are courtesy of Nathalie Loh, and photographer (bless you...

Lesson learnt from No Pants Subway Ride Day: If you want to make random women show you their panties, start a flash mob. The subway flash mob event started 13 years ago, and this year it’s spread to over 60 cities, with more than 3000 people showing off their goody bags.

Mr Lui Tuck Yew could be mistaken for a Britney Spears fan. And he’s probably been playing “Oops I Did It Again” on overdrive in whatever car he drives. Here’s the new, higher COE prices, after all the promises of “price moderations”.   Category A Perhaps the only drop amongst all the categories, though still terribly high. $72,369...

If Mediacorp won’t recognise the beauty of our bolder-skinned compatriots, The RedWire will! Here’s some models which would certainly sizzle on the local stage, if not the international runway. All photos are courtesy of the respective models and their photographers. Thanks guys and gals! ...

Acceptance of multi-racialism? Sure. Promotion of multi-racialism? Nada. I’m talking about you, Mediacorp. Thanks for reinforcing the notion amongst many of our foreign friends tuning in to the New Year Countdown show that Singapore indeed is somewhere in China.   Pre-Countdown, we’ve got a wannabe Brit boyband belting out songs unrecognisable to most locals. And...
