DISGRACED – WHEN POLITICS AND RELIGION CROSS PATHS

How apt a time for Disgraced to be staged as we see the cracks between race and class continue to rip apart by rising nationalism. Written by a Muslim-American, this play's struggles on identity and a sense of belonging can strike a chord or two within the audience.

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.

PETITION TO REPLACE ADAM LAMBERT WITH SUN HO FOR COUNTDOWN 2016 CONCERT

Following the outrage by some conservative religious people who felt that it was inappropriate for Adam Lambert to headline the 2016 concert organised by Mediacorp at The Float at Marina Bay, some Singaporeans have started another petition for Sun Ho to replace Adam Lambert at the concert.

S’POREAN GIRL: MALAYSIAN GUYS ARE BETTER THAN SINGAPOREAN GUYS

I am an average Singaporean girl-next-door and after being in a dating scene for a while, I realised that Singaporean guys cannot compare to Malaysian guys.

They are also more sheltered, dependent and like to hide behind their mother's apron strings.

On the other hand, Malaysian guys are more independent and can be depended on because they do not lead such a pampered life and are more resourceful in getting things done.

The Stomper advices all vegetable lovers to be cautious while eating, as the brinjal looked perfectly fine on the outside.
