Stop ho(r)sing around: Town council warns family playing with fire hose reel at Ang Mo Kio carpark

Kids enjoy playing with water, especially when the weather's hot. But a family may be in hot water after they were filmed misusing a fire hose reel at a multi-storey carpark in Ang Mo Kio on July 18. In dashcam footage supplied by a Stomp contributor, a woman was seen playing with her young son while water flowed out from the hose. «The father washes the Mercedes while the kid and mother play with water from the fire hose reel,» said the Stomp contributor, adding that this was a weekly activity for the family. Now, the Ang Mo Kio town council (AMKTC) is keeping an eye on the family and the carpark, as any unauthorised use of the fire hose reel, such as for washing of vehicles, is a serious offence.

Olympics: Singapore's table tennis player Yu Mengyu loses women's singles semi, but bronze medal still up for grabs

TOKYO - Overcoming China's world No. 1 Chen Meng proved a bridge too far for Singapore paddler Yu Mengyu as she lost 4-0 (11,6, 11-8, 11-7, 11-6) in their Tokyo Olympics women's single semi-final on Thursday (July 29). Yu, ranked 47th, gamely tried to keep up and stay close but made too many unforced errors to threaten an upset as Chen was too quick and decisive with her first three strokes. There is still a chance for the 31-year-old Yu to claim a medal at the Games, which would be Singapore's first since London 2012 when the women's team took home the bronze medal and compatriot Feng Tianwei bagged a bronze in the women's singles.

I worked only for my son, now I don't know who to work for: Mum of teen killed at Bedok basketball court

«I worked only for my son, now I don't know who to work for.» Rahimah Lee Abdullah uttered those exact words as her eyes filled with tears. On Monday (July 26) night, Rahimah's son, Mohd Ridwan, left home for a game of basketball in Bedok and never came back. The 17-year old regularly headed out for basketball with his friends. This was nothing out of the ordinary, she told The Straits Times in an interview on Wednesday. He was an energetic teen. After returning home from the basketball court, he'd be found in his room shouting excitedly during gaming sessions with friends or creating covers of pop songs with his keyboard. More often than not, it'll go into the night, as his 62-year old mother would leave for her night shift as a petrol station attendant in Pasir Ris. Since Ridwan's death, the three-room flat in Bedok where he lived with his parents and maternal grandmother, has become much quieter.
