Ah, the engagement ring - the good old-fashioned way to start angry arguments. If you say it doesn’t have to be valuable, you’re unromantic and crass. If you say it has to be expensive, you’re materialistic and shallow. It’s like when a woman asks you if she’s fat - there is no correct answer. So here’s what we’re going to do. We’re going to advance an opinion on what the price of your engagement ring says about your relationship.
To earn miles, you must be prepared to play the ‘miles’ game. And you need at least one good credit card. I recently boarded a flight from Singapore to Amsterdam en route to Romania. As always I was flying Singapore Airlines, my first choice of airlines. At the time of check-in, I requested the SQ staff if I could get the single window Business class seat and she smiled back letting me know I had already selected it. I then thought to myself, when did I actually reserve the seat?
One of the key person trying to start the fan club Lau Chu Nan said, "You look at David Ong this type of pattern. So toot looking and the spectacles so orbit type. Not say he very fit, also got a bit bui bui. Can get Wendy this type of chio bu." Lau Chu Nan was full of praise for his idol, "When I look at him, I feel so inspired, I feel I got chance, so old liao still can find this type of action."

This frustrating incident took place on 20/1/16, I went CNY shopping and bought 3 plastic bags full of oranges. As I was carrying them home, I accidentally dropped 1 bag. While picking them up, a woman holding a kid who looks not more than 5 joined me. It was after picking them up that I realised this woman had taken 2 oranges and starting peeling one of them. She shouted that it was just an orange and I was being immature. I started telling her how absurd her actions were and how she was being a bad example to her kid when her kid started crying loudly.
A couple of days ago, the Filipino media ABS-CBN news reported that their journalists were shocked and confused when they saw PM Lee Hsien Loong disembark from a small unmarked Gulfstream jet. The news article also highlighted that Singapore is one of the richest economies in the world with a GDP per capita and yet PM Lee also chooses to travel on commercial flights for official business. We can't decide if the Filipino media is indirectly criticising Singapore for being stingy or praising us for our financial prudence. What do you think?
Singaporeans are not spared from supernatural encounters. Although our tiny nation state is highly urbanised, friends & creatures from the other dimensions make occasional appearances to remind us that we are not alone and they deserve the due respect as well.
Singapore held its most extravagant #SG50 National Day Parade but netizens were impressed not be the parade! Instead, they are enamored by the pretty faces featured by those cheeky producers working our TV screens.

Judging by the popping up of new sociopolitical sites every now and then, Singaporeans are frankly getting tired of the mainstream media. Just last week, a new site "CMI - Cannot Make It" emerged and it presents an irreverent take on political news in Singapore. When interviewed by All Singapore Stuff, CMI shared their aspirations and motivations behind the page.
