Remember Michael Fay?

Two Germans apparently didn’t get the memo about Michael Fay and the “rotan”. Michael Fay was big news around the world when the then 18 year old teenager went on a vandalism spree. Although he denied the acts of vandalism and confessed to only stealing road signs, Michael Fay was still jailed and caned although his sentence was reduced from six strokes to four after mediation from the US government. What happened after he left prison and returned to America? Nothing much has changed according to wikipedia which doesn’t include […]

Same Same But Different – Taxis

Pirate Taxis, should they be shut down or lauded for their entrepreneurial instincts? You know that phrase when you go Thailand, and you hear it and see it smacked all over tourist shirts “Same Same but Different”. Well Pirate Taxis here in Singapore, offer the same services, but different prices and come with a whole set of different risks. Cars aren’t cheap in Singapore, they’re a luxury item that can cost a bulk of your monthly income. To add on, petrol doesn’t come cheap either and with cost perpetually rising, […]

Entertainment: The Way We Go (20th – 29th November 2014)

This is coming to the end of its run, but if there’s one play you absolutely must catch this week, it will be The Way We Go. Sometimes, what we need is a good clean story that is stripped of all the frills, dramatic effects, fancy props and music. It cuts through the fat of modern entertainment and leaves for you nothing but raw emotion. It somehow reminds me of this 2003 Lars Von Trier piece – “Dogville”. The story follow the reflections of Agatha Mao, former principal of the […]

Don’t anyhowly complain on Facebook

  Have you seen this video circulated by online tabloid sites? In it, a man who calls himself “Mohd Bin Japar” rants about how he was allegedly bullied by Filipino co-workers. He even had no qualms stating that he used to work for ColdStorage. Guess what? It was all fake and the man had since apologised. The Minister of Manpower himself lent a few words to this case, here’s what he said in verbatim: “This was first raised to me by an online site who posted the video interview by […]

Julian Blanc apologised, but I’m not impressed…

“I just want to apologize to anyone I’ve offended in any way. This was never my intention and I just want to put it out there,” Blanc told CNN’s Chris Cuomo. “I’m extremely sorry,” Blanc continued. “Like, I feel horrible. I’m not going to be happy to feel like I’m the most hated man in the world. I’m overwhelmed by the way people are responding.” The man has apologized, but I think it is a half assed, unapologetic type of apology. The type of squeaky sorry a kid makes for being outed. […]

Travelling in Style

You know the drill, walking through customs and you have to remove the passport cover from your passport when you scan your passport…why bother with passport covers anyways?

When we think of Scandinavia or at least when I think of Scandinavia I think of Ikea, their ridiculous minimalist designs, trendy people in skinny jeans and of course vikings.       Ever since Norway announced plans to […]
