TODDLER NEARLY KIDNAPPED IN CHINATOWN

A short while later, the police was called to the scene. The wife of the Chinese man explained that she thought the baby in the stroller was hers, but turned out she was wrong. The Chinese man then backed up his wife by telling the police that his missus was mentally unsound, and had mistaken the baby in the stroller as theirs. The police then questioned Mum about the details of the incident, but out of fear and frustration, she shouted that the toddler was hers. The wife of the Chinese man then demanded that Mum showed proof to everyone that the toddler in the stroller was indeed hers. The whole ordeal went on for an hour while the police did some checks to verify the identity of the baby in the stroller, and that our reader was indeed the mother.

Streams apart: Why has the N-word become a dirty word?

Only after five unforgettable years in Normal classes did I realise the reason why we were afraid to be in the stream. It was not about our actual intellect, but rather how (un)intelligent we were perceived to be. It was about the perception, reinforced by sneering students, kiasu parents, and now even some parts of the media machine, that to my mind hinders the whole purpose and effectiveness of the streaming system. When I was in the Normal stream, I was allowed to take Express-level English, meaning I had to join Express students for my English classes in Sec 4.

An Introduction to Singaporean Kopi Culture

For the most part, Singapore is a city that has been rushing fearlessly into the future, with several islands and 700,000 new housing developments set to be constructed by 2030. As a result, it holds a significantly higher standard and cost of living than many of its Southeast Asian neighbors. However, one aspect of the nation that has held onto old-time tradition despite this rush forward is its kopitiam culture (where “kopi” translates as the Malay word for “coffee” and “tiam” translates as the Hokkein word for “shop”). Even just the word “kopitiam” and its multilingual translation reflect Singapore’s diverse cultural history.

Chye Seng Huat Hardware Coffee Bar.

Old, run-down, hardware shop facade, with an air-conditioned, limited seating interior, and the coffee counter parked at the center of the space, this slightly more than a year old cafe receives full marks for being a hipster brunch place. It really isn’t all that hard to get to from Lavender MRT, just straight down Horne Road till you hit Tyrwhitt Road; you’ll be there in 10 minutes.

FRIEND OF ANTON CASEY SPEAKS OUT

I lived in Singapore for 8 years and know Anton. there is no question that what he posted was stupid in the extreme. He also comes across in person as certainly more to the smug and arrogant end of the spectrum. What i will say is that the venom that his actions have unleashed is like nothing I've ever seen. Death threats. Comments on his wife looking like a tranny and son who looks like he's retarded. Pictures of his home put online and address posted. And people asking on comment boards what school his son goes to.

BRITISH EXPAT CONDEMNS SINGAPORE

However, the backlash here has been COMPLETELY over the top and actually pretty sinister. Death threats (allegedly, but I can believe it based on death threats a mate received for something completely unrelated), some pretty hideous and unwarranted abuse of his son and wife, people cancelling their HSBC accounts because that's where Casey works(ed), someone reporting him to the police for sedition! Today, we've even had a senior politician jumping on board telling everyone how upset the comments made him. There's also been a deluge of anti-Caucasian and British comments posted online, including some nasty racist stuff.

Review: Revolution Coffee at Portsdown

Coffee lovers now have a reason to head west. Located at Infinite Studios, Media Circle—not far from Temasek Club, Portsdown Road—two-month old specialty coffee cafe Revolution Coffee serves up a smooth and mellow house blend of Single Origin Roasters from Sydney, which you can often expect Indonesian-born owner Ajie Permana himself preparing.

KIM JONG UN'S BROTHER IS STAYING IN SINGAPORE?

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's elder half-brother, who disappeared from the radar since the execution of former eminence grise Jang Song-taek, has been spotted in Malaysia. The Yomiuri Shimbun on Tuesday quoted sources as saying Kim Jong-nam left his home in Singapore earlier this month and was spotted in a Korean restaurant in Kuala Lumpur. Until December of 2011, when his father, former leader Kim Jong-il was alive, Kim Jong-nam shuttled back and forth between Beijing and Macau, where his first and second wives lived. He also travelled to Thailand, Austria and Russia and stopped in Pyongyang once in a while.

ANTON CASEY PUT SINGAPORE ON WORLD MAP WITH MUCH LESS COST

True to character, it was Lee Kuan Yew who volunteered his unsolicited opinion, "But remember, the problems that need to be overcome are very complex. Even if you put in your best effort, in these five years, you will probably be able to resolve about 30 to 40 per cent only." Makes you wonder what advice he gave his own son when the Dragon Prince ascended the throne in 2004. He has had double the time afforded to Dr Yudhoyono, and has the cheek to want to be around for another 20 years. Thanks to his cultivation of the high net worth individuals, we have the Anton problem.
