JJ Lin flexes that he's the first in Asia to lay hands on a PS5, much to the envy of everyone else

Being an award-winning Mandopop superstar certainly has its perks.  Singaporean singer-songwriter JJ Lin flexed on everyone else when he put up pictures of himself with a brand new PlayStation 5, weeks before the next-gen video game console is due to be officially released. “Psyched to be the first in Asia to lay hands on the PlayStation 5,” he wrote in a Facebook post on Wednesday (Oct 28).  Aside from that unverified claim, the post featured the 39-year-old musician in various poses with Sony’s new gigantic gaming console, though we don’t really get to see what he’s playing on it.  It’s likely that he’s facing the same embargo guidelines as us media folks who managed to get a hands-on demo with the PS5 earlier this week. So no photos of the back of the console, no gameplay showcase and no pictures of the user interface.

‘The puff is online’: Netizens ridicule complaint about green dots on Old Chang Kee curry puffs

A woman who was blissfully unaware about the existence and significance of coloured dots on curry puffs thought they were blemishes and felt the need to air her grievances online.  The internet, astonished that a Singaporean isn’t familiar with the practice, came out in droves to educate her in various shades and tones of snark.  The woman took to the Facebook page of homegrown curry puff chain Old Chang Kee on Tuesday (Oct 27) to complain about an outlet at VivoCity. Apparently, she had bought Chicken Mushroom’O curry puffs (now revamped with butter pastry) but was hesitant to bite into them. Why? Because the meaty pies had green dots on the crusts.  “Got a shock to see these green little dots on the pie. Not sure what are them and if they are spoilt [sic]?” she questioned, stating that she didn’t see the markings on similar puffs she bought from another outlet the day before. As such, she felt that Old Chang Kee Singapore did not deserve her recommendation.

Thu, 2020-10-29 02:47 RIYADH: A probe into the last week’s fire that broke out in the Ghulamah Mountains in Tanuma governorate, north of Asir, indicated that three border violators caused the blaze.

Tens of thousands of perennial trees — including wild olives, neems, junipers, and acacias — some of which are over 50 years old — were also destroyed.
