WHY DO BANKS MAKE IT SO DIFFICULT TO GET NEW NOTES & RED PACKETS?

Why made collecting new notes so kangkor (difficult) ha ??? My wife and I went to the bank at 10.30 am. Long queues already formed. Two confusing queues - one for red packets and one for new notes. One customer only one packet. One customer only limited to $1000 $10 notes and maximum $400 $2 notes. What about two packs - one for my wife? Cannot! What about my extended family? Cannot!!! Can give extra red packet ? Also cannot!!! Can I re- queue and collect? Cannot ! Don't try Uncle, I can recognize you hor.So don't try.Ask your wife to queue hor....

NTUC TO REMAIN OPEN DURING CNY, NO NEED TO STOCK UP GROCERIES

NTUC has announced that it will open 83 of its outlets island wide for 24 hours on the eve of the Chinese New Year, to allow shoppers to continue shopping for their CNY goodies. 25 of its outlets will also remain open throughout the CNY period itself. This is a change from previous years, where most of the outlets are closed during the holidays. In fact, most of the shops are normally closed during the CNY period that it became the norm for Singaporeans to stock up on food items to tide over the CNY period. Nowadays, most shops remain open. This is good news for customers, but possibly good news for NTUC and the other shops also, as remaining open during the period will ensure many shoppers will buy stuff there, and thus, more money coming in for them. For customers, no need to worry about grocery during the CNY period like in previous years.

PERVERT GROPES LADY AT CHINATOWN CNY BAZAAR, DEMANDS PROOF FROM VICTIM WHEN CONFRONTED

Then on my left, in the opposite direction, there was this man who walked past me and I felt it. I felt his entire palm & 5 fingers on my upper thigh, right next to my butt. He exerted slight pressure and all his fingers curled up & dug into my thigh, and he let go. Once I felt that touch, like a reflex action, I immediately turned and saw the back of the guy & I smacked him right on his back. So my male cousins stopped the pervert & questioned him if he did touched me and of course the pervert denied and asked "Where's your proof?! Do you have proof that I touched her?!" Wah, I hear already damn angry bloody idiot. Who goes around videoing themselves to catch such incident!?
