KOH: There are some things you should never do to your kids, such as feeding them broccoli, or making them get some weird-ass haircut for Chinese New Year just to show relatives how cute they are. With CNY around the corner, the custom is to get a trim to symbolise a new start to a new year, and to get rid of the bad luck from the previous year. So yeah, parents go bring your kids to the barber, or...

Looking back at Singapore 2016, this really was a year of super cock-ups, with each one closely matching the other in terms of sheer numbskull-ish behaviour (except for you, SMRT). That’s why we had a much harder time deciding on the eventual Redwire Awards winners compared to 2015. But ultimately we had to choose. So after many rounds of Tiger, here’s our choices… (1) Scandal of...

It’s not every day that you see such courteous behaviour on the MRT that would make Singa proud. This particular train ride was special – instead of rushing to grab and sit their plump ass down on any seat available, Singaporeans in a shocking move willing stood around as a water bottle took its seat. It’s unclear if the water bottle was pregnant with water or simply tired from a hard day of...

Lost in love and need a partner? How about giving Ralph Yee a try? After all, he’s supposedly good for “long-term family planning, cuddling and cleaning” and comes with good reviews. The lovelorn lad put himself up for sale on Carousell, presumably as a gag (we hope) after he broke up with his girlfriend. So distraught was he that he even listed a sofa she used to use for sale too. What...

The Oxford English Dictionary has included more Singlish words in its latest update on Monday. No lah, not Chinese Helicopter or Indian Helicopter or your great grandfather’s helicopter lah. More like Ah Beng, Aiyoh and Aiyah. The best (or worst) part is, all these latest words seem to have their origins in the term “nabeh” (if you don’t know what that is, don’t read...

Those who go jogging at East Coast Park know that he used to go jogging there too. Those who are active in school and grassroots activities know that he liked to shake hands (a lot). And those who read the papers know that at some point of time Mr S R Nathan was president (yeah goondu, between 1999 and 2012 to be exact). But in the wake of our late former president’s passing, more has been revealed...

Someone’s ass is going to hurt tonight. In its bid to play up the legitimacy of late former president S R Nathan’s presidency, it appears that some fact-checking wasn’t by Straits Times editors prior to releasing this story. An interviewee known as Lin Rong Xiang said (probably with much exuberance and gusto) that he voted for Mr Nathan when he was elected president. There’s...

National Day is just round the corner, but a question for all our flag-waving Singapore enthusiasts – how many of you know what the different symbols on our national flag stand for? Namely, the 4 stars, and 1 crescent moon, plus the colours red and white. No, the red and white doesn’t stand for how much blood and sweat we put into paying for COE and ERP. Don’t know? It’s ok...

Note of caution to those who like to bitch about people to others via text message – don’t send the bitchy text to the person you’re bitching about by mistake. Like this property agent who wasn’t happy that one of his potential customers was late for an event. By all of 2 minutes. Said the young lady client who was obviously pretty shocked to receive the rude messages: “”I can’t...

Some people you’re better off not asking questions, like this good friend of one Twitter use, @Noxiousdreams_ When asked about what he wanted to achieve during his 2 years of National Service, he came up with this response which would make even Tom Hanks go “knn lah”. It might not be exactly Da Vinci code standard, but it isn’t too bad either!   ...

We know what the PAP’s Murali Pillai would do if he had S$1.9 million dollars. But what if you gave Dr Chee Soon Juan “jit ba ban”? Have a listen to this cover of the popular Hokkien gua, with music by the SDP chief and footage by Tay Bee Pin. Said Tay: “When it was clear that Dr Chee Soon Juan would be standing for the upcoming by-election in Bukit Batok. I asked whether...

Singapore’s infamous son, Steven Lim, taking part in China’s The Voice? Yes, the eyebrow plucker, “performer”, and self-proclaimed artiste manager with “3000 artistes” under his wing really did take part. Lim, whose claim to fame came during the first season of Singapore idol when he did a singing striptease at the audition, says he went alone to try out for The...

What happens when you pay for your big day to turn out on film like like Cinderella, but it ends up looking more like The Hunchback of Notre Dame? That’s what happened to one newly-wed, Jaclyn Ying. Just look at the photos and see for yourself! Still, Jacyln hasn’t lost her wit, even as she narrated the disastrous results of her wedding photoshoot, and pursues the bridal shop for a refund. “So,...

“Hi there,  I’m selling a 2 year old full leather reclining sofa by Giormani, model is MACKEN. I bought the sofa in Hong Kong and shortly after, had it put in storage with all my belongings because I was relocating to Singapore.” Heng ah, our editor saw this Gumtree advertisement and re-checked to double confirm everything was ok before posting an ad to sell his toilet bowl. Seemingly...
