NOKIA RELAUNCHES MODEL 3310, USELESS IN NON 2G SUPPORTING SG

This morning, woke u p to news that Nokia is relaunching a revamped version of its iconic 3310 model more than a decade after it was phased out. This new relaunched version will allow for web browsing, which the original did not have.

This iconic phone was first launched in 2000, and the original 3310 sold nearly 120 million units worldwide before it was discontinued in 2005, making it one of the world's best-selling mobile phones. So, for those thinking of it as a novelty, then this relaunch is a godsend. But be warned though. The phone is run on 2.5G. Singapore's 2G networks will be closed from April this year, thus Singaporeans who think they can use this phone are in for a tough luck. All 2G-only phones will not support calls, SMS and data services, so you will end up playing the "Snake" game only.

MONSTER EMPLOYER MOLESTS MAID DAYS AFTER STARTING WORK

Another monster employer caught and sentenced in the courts today. This time, it is a Singapore PR, Jacob Kumar Ross B. Isaac Ross, who started molesting his Filipino maid shortly after she started work for the monster's family in November 2015.

This monster even had the cheek to tell her that he wants her "by the end of the month" in January 2016. You hire a maid to help you with the housework, not to take advantage of her! How do you expect maids to work under such conditions, where they are worried for their life, especially with a monster employer whose main aim is to molest and have his way with her. Maid and employer live under the same roof, so imagine the kind of stress and fear the maid has to live through!

PAP WANTS MORE NAYSAYERS, CRUSHES DISSENT WITH IMPUNITY

Anyway the point I'm circling around is this: I think our elites are being naive or intellectually dishonest when they bemoan that Singaporeans are uncreative, afraid of failure, of losing face, of dissenting or speaking up. They should be talking about the conditions that created the culture.

OVERTURN BAN ON CATS IN HDB NOW, NO ONE ACTUALLY PAYING ATTENTION TO THE BAN AT ALL

Read in the news today that the Cat Welfare Society (CWS) president, Ms Thenuga Vijakumar, has made overturning the ban on cats in HDB flats as one of her long term goals. This ban on cats has been in place since HDB's inception in 1960.

Some progress has been made - a pilot project for residents in Chong Pang to keep their feline companions in their flats was launched in 2012. Talks on funding to extend the scheme to two more precincts are ongoing. Once again, the debate between cats and dogs will be opened up. Most will ask why, if dogs are allowed in HDB cats, then cats are not allowed. After all, there are already thousands of cats living in HDB flats. Thus, by legitimising their ownership, this will allow for better education and enforcement against errant owners.

CHINA COMPANY USES PUBLIC SPACE TO RENT OUT BIKES

First, these PRC came here and taking over our jobs. Once they take over our jobs, they bring their whole family and taking over our neighbourhoods. Now, it seems like a business from China also coming over and taking over the Public Parks bicycle business!

Apparently, a bicycle-sharing company from China, ofo, is conducting business at some public parks, such as Pasir Ris Park without having to pay rent for using the public space. And since they don't have to pay any rental space, they are charging 50 cents a trip. Normally, Singaporean bike rental businesses charge about $7 to $8 for an hour of use. Of course, customers don't care whether you are a Singapore registered company, or a China one. They see a good and cheap rental fee, they will go grab it. Who wouldn't want 50 cents a trip compared to $8 for an hour of use?

PM LEE SAID LEADERS MUST BE OPEN TO VIEWS FROM OTHERS. HAHAHA!

PM Lee making us all laugh early this morning. In that sense, he is a terrific PM for Singapore, he knows we all facing Monday Blues, so he is doing his best to help us all laugh to work this Monday morning.

He said leaders must remain open to other views, and also important for leaders to not be surrounded by "yes men" who paint only a positive picture. He might say these things, but actually, who in his cabinet listening to him? Most of them are Yes Men in the first place, for them to get to where they are now. Of course, nobody will admit they are Yes Men, so let's just humour them and say they got to where they are through sheer hard work.

AMOS YEE UNFAIRLY KEPT IN SOLITARY JAIL FOR 2 WEEKS BY US JAILER

Amos has been in solitary confinement (in a cell alone with no one to talk to and nothing to do for the entire day) for 14 days now, for ‘criticising Islam in Muslim Studies’ in America, McHenry County Jail. We have refused to publish and reveal this news to the public in fear that it will hurt his case, but now, I think it’s overly paranoid for us to think that revealing this news would harm his case as it’s completely non-related. Because this news was not revealed, the sergeant of McHenry County Jail has been able to freely exercise his authority without any fear of consequences and has kept Amos longer in solitary confinement than he should have been.
