We used to do boxing for training. Now, touch rugby? Is MINDEF serious about turning our Singapore men into sissys? Will skirts be part of our army uniform next?   I served my national service – when conditions were much tougher, and men were much rougher. My instructor would scold my great-grandmother, grandmother and mother before he came to scolding me. We did alot of fitness...

So CASE and the RMCA are pushing for contractors to be assessed and accredited, so that consumers can have greater peace of mind. Let’s skip the smaller fish and focus on the biggest contractor in Singapore, the one that’s responsible for all our public housing – the HDB. How about taking the HDB to task first for shoddy workmanship and defects which have caused consumers so much headache over...

He was the King of Poop. Neverland’s manicured lawns and fairy-tale facade masked a house of horrors and madness, five of Michael Jackson’s maids revealed to The New York Post. “Michael sometimes ran around where the animals were, and he’d track . . . poop throughout the house and think nothing of it,” Maid No. 1 recalled. “Then, if you said something, he’d threaten to make doo-doo snowballs and throw it at you.” When Oprah Winfrey visited the Los Olivos, Calif., ranch for an interview...

It was intended as a romantic gesture to welcome his girlfriend home from a month abroad. But a hapless boyfriend’s attempt at setting the mood backfired when candles he placed on the bedroom floor started a blaze which then tore through the house. With champagne chilling and flowers scattered, Amanj Issen used tea lights to spell out his girlfriend’s name and a heart. However, as he waited...

Besides attending the parade, we had a great time shooting some behind-the scenes shots from the National Day Parade this year. It was a nice, simple show done with Singaporeans in mind. Take a look!   ...

Shameful, it’s so shameful that our state media has sunk so low to get revenue and readership. Look at how state media celebrates National Day. This is just shameful. The Straits Times acts like it’s congratulating Singapore and wishing everyone a happy national day on its front page…. then we learn it’s promoting a credit card! The Newpaper fills its whole cover with sex stories...

Singaporeans, we should be proud of ourselves. No matter how difficult life might become, we always find a way to adapt and overcome. Our forefathers built this country from a swampland to the world-renowned nation it is today. We must carry on building this country for our children and theirs to come. For now, let’s take a breather and see count our blessings as Singaporeans: (a) Passports that can bring us almost anywhere in the world (b) Young talents that are respected globally for their skills and intelligence (c) A country...

Redwire is happy to hear that the 78-year-old granny who couldn’t get a ward after waiting for more than a 2 days in Tan Tock Seng hospital has been given better treatment. The old lady cracked her hip plate. She was placed on a bed and left along the corridor of the hospital, near to a nurse counter because there were no available wards. Tan Tock Seng Hospital apparently kept promising her family...

Sorry, no such song exist. Sun Ho is a failed Hollywood wannabe who only made it there on the back of church money. S$50 million of church money.City Harvest members are probably feeling as cheated as you do when you clicked on that headline! As you’re reading this, there’s about 50,000 Sun Ho CDs stacked in warehouses or trash burners. Sun Ho studied...

First-year students in NTU will be allowed to retake up to 6 failed modules without affecting their GPA, starting from next year. They can retake the modules, and if they pass on the 2nd try, that grade will be used to calculate their GPA score. The change was made to help students adjust to university life.   Kam Chan Hin, NTU’s Senior Association Provost...

  Dr Ng Eng Hen shoots his mouth off, and the Singapore government shoots itself in the foot again. He issued a strong-worded warning to PRs that they are obliged to perform National Service just like Singapore citizens. But let’s be fair, Dr Ng. What about our very own citizen MP, Dr Janil Puthucheary? He didn’t serve National Service, and look where he is now – sitting in and occasionally sleeping in parliament.   Dr Janil received his citizenship when he was 35 years old. He could have performed National...

Defence Minister Dr Ng Eng Hen has warned Permanent Residents in Singapore that they face jail time if they don’t register or enlist for National Service. Dr Ng called such people “NS defaulters” and said they must answer for their offence under the Enlistment Act. Under the Enlistment Act, they PRs who default on their NS liabilities can be jailed or fined.   In...

So some Singaporeans were caught horsing around and hanging loose in Penang. What’s the big deal, especially since the only big thing we saw in the video is stomachs. Without beating about the bush, these guys are called “naturists”, and they appear to have gotten approval from the Park Ranger before letting the good times roll.  So that’s a feather in the cap to them. The five-minute video shows the group in the nude participating in activities such as body painting, a relay race, a group crab-walk and a Gangnam-style...
