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.
In Singapore, the Ghost month falls on the 7th month of the lunar year, which starts on 27 July 2014 for one full lunar month. During this month the gates of hell are opened to free the hungry ghosts who then wander to seek food on Earth. Some even think that the ghosts would seek revenge on those who had wronged them in their lives. The reason why the Chinese celebrate this festival is to remember their dead family members and pay tribute to them. They also feel that offering food to the deceased appeases them and wards off bad luck.
Using the same tactics used by “gay” rights activists, pedophiles have begun to seek similar status arguing their desire for children is a sexual orientation no different than heterosexual or homosexuals.
Netizens are going amok after a pretty NTU student posted a carousell advertise selling her used panties and lingerie. Although she did not reveal her face, she did take some super flattering pictures of her pre-loved clothes and herself. Some men have since pretended to meet up on the pretext of buying her products but ended up flying her aeroplane.
Kevryn, who currently runs her own event management and digital marketing firm, EM DM, while holding down a position as a Project Manager at WOW Productions, is definitely not your run-of-the-mill political lightweight. According to her Linkedin profile, she holds a Bachelor's Degree in Mass Communications, Public Relations and Film & TV from the Curtin University of Technology, as well as a Masters in Professional Communication from the same university. Our reader also informed A.S.S. that Kevryn had worked as a model for a few years. This comes as no surprise, given Kevryn's lithe frame and attractive features.
I ask myself only this question, does this society care for art and artists? I feel it is still a society that put us at the bottom of the stack. Now that the ministry in government holds the portfolio combining both sports and arts this incident seem to indicate we are below even that of sports. Please do not osstracize us again. I am trying to be happy and learn to respect living here although my heart is in Japan.
At the Gala Premiere of Singapura: The Musical on 23 May at the Capitol Theatre, many Singaporeans found themselves cringing at Philippine company 4th Wall Theatre Co. in their attempts to understand Singapore culture, including their attempts to speak Singlish. Despite expected extensive preparations and rehearsals, the cast of Singapura: The Musical were still unconvincing in their Singlish words and accent on stage, still very much laced with their own Filipino articulation of words.
I recently went out with a guy about two years my senior. He is my colleague and we got along very well. We started chatting in office during lunch at first, and it slowly became more than that. About one month after we got together, I told him about my family problem. It's because I have this disabled brother of mine, who is mentally a bit unstable. He always likes to throw tantrums, scolding people and hitting everyone around him even my parents.
Wavee comes after years of bitching about how Singtel can't earn any money from calls and SMSes anymore because everyone is using messenger apps. In one statement, Singtel even said that it would want to partner with companies like WhatsApp and Skype to create a "sustainable revenue model" (they probably meant that they would charge the companies for data usage costs, which would be transmitted to end users.)
Mr Lee Kuan Yew visited SAFTI MI in Aug 1995 before the unit's opening ceremony. As you know, SAFTI's nearest MRT station back then was Boon Lay, a distance away. Our Commandant then (a Brigadier General) was giving a brief to Mr Lee. Lee suddenly asked how far is the nearest MRT to SAFTI MI. He was told it is 30 minutes by bus. Lee replied "How can our NS boys reach camp on time? Did you arrange the army tonners to pick them up?". The Commandant replied "No". Then Lee stared at the Commandant, turned to then Defence Minister Dr Tony Tan and said "Can you please arrange for ferry buses to pick up our NS boys as soon as possible? Four waves in the morning and four waves in the evening."
