FINALLY, GOOD NEWS FROM AVA! WE DID NOT IMPORT ROTTEN MEAT FROM BRAZIL!

I guess we can all breathe a sigh of relief that AVA has announced that Singapore is not affected by the Brazilian rotten meat saga. None of the 21 meat-processing establishments placed by the Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Food Supply under a special surveillance regime are approved to export to Singapore, the authority said in a statement.

This is a huge relief. When NTUC announced earlier today that they are checking with the meat supplier, Singaporeans collectively held their breath. What if we really had been eating rotten meat? Thankfully, it has been confirmed Singapore was not affected. Finally AVA brought some good news to Singaporeans, after all their culling nonsense.

Residents say the town’s only downside is the difficulty in finding a boyfriend or husband. They’re interested in inviting men to the town, but only if they understand the guidelines and lifestyle.

Three months before the World Cup 2014 is due to kick off in Brazil, SingTel announced yesterday it has secured the broadcast rights, soothing the nerves of football fans who had to wait until just weeks before the previous tournament to know if they would be able to watch the games on television. Fans will be able to watch all 64 matches for a one-time price of S$105, excluding Goods and Services Tax (GST), said SingTel, which is also finalising arrangements with StarHub to let its customers access the matches as, under the cross-carriage rule, exclusive pay-TV content has to be offered to customers of rival providers.
