IS AMERICAN PR COMPANY BEHIND PM LEE'S HUMBLING CLARIFICATION VIDEO?

Whoever is behind LHL's video has done a top class job. Plain background, tired-looking LHL with little make-up, displaying a little exasperation/frustration, a hint dishevelled... Making LHL look like just an ordinary son trying to honour his parents. Looks like the work of an American PR company. Top notch understanding of how social media works.

SKINNY S'PORE MAN SAYS HE WAS SHAMED & LOOKED DOWN FOR HIS BODY SIZE

I was wondering why aren't those who develop body image issues (psychological aspect or the obsession to gain weight) for being overly small and skinny not represented in local media at all? I have honestly been ridiculed with names like "slenderman" or "stick" and have been told that I am traditionally unattractive as people prefer guys who are meaty and are thus stronger. Heck, I've been looked down so much during my schooling life and in NS because of my skinny stature over my meatier counterparts just because it the norm for guys to be bigger to seem masculine.

ICA FAT SHAMES S'PORE MAN CAUGHT SMUGGLING CIGARETTES STRAPPED ON WAISTBAND

Six-pack? ICA officers only see two packs. A Singaporean man was stopped at Woodlands checkpoint yesterday when ICA officer found two packets of cigarettes strapped at his waistband. This method of concealment is a cause for concern as it may be used by people with ill intent to smuggle security items into Singapore.

S'PORE IS PROSPERING OFF THE BACKS OF POOR NATIONS?

From Singapore's perspective, migrant workers are easy to employ or drop at will. But for the worker, this leaves him in a painfully difficult situation – often much worse off than he was before. It's yet another way rich nations benefit off the backs of poorer ones. Until we acknowledge and address global inequality, all talk about wanting to "prosper together as a region" is just lip service.

38 OXLEY ROAD PARLIAMENTARY ENQUIRY JUST ANOTHER WAYANG?

PM said he'll lift the whip only for the upcoming Parliament session on 3 Jul and furthermore, asked all MPs to be sure of raising any and all queries on BEHALF of their constituents. Problem is, how are the various MPs going to know what to ask Cabinet if there's been no Public Consultation Exercises similar to the one held for the Our Singapore Conversation with all Citizens?
