Man vs machine: Commuter kicks and punches bus for leaving him behind

Many dream of being able to hold down and halt departing vehicles the way Captain America does in Civil War but few actually have the guts to do so. That was until a bus allegedly drove off without waiting for this man who, in a fit of rage, threw himself in front of the 'offending' vehicle and physically attacked it on Friday night (Oct 18). 30-year-old eyewitness, Wu, shared as such in an interview with Lianhe Zaobao, recounting how the man was walking towards a bus stop along Beach Road, where two buses had already pulled into the station. The man had presumably meant to board the 197 bus service behind. However, as there were plenty of people boarding and alighting the bus in front, the driver failed to notice the man and began to drive off. Upon seeing his bus leaving, the man flew into a rage and threw himself onto the road, using his body to stop the bus from leaving.

CEA slaps $30,000 fine, 12 months' suspension on property agent for faking offers to get bigger commission

SINGAPORE - A property agent has been fined $30,000 and suspended for 12 months for faking offers and counteroffers in a private property transaction in a bid to get a bigger commission for himself at the expense of his client. It is the highest sentence meted out so far to a property agent by the Council for Estate Agencies (CEA), the statutory board that regulates the real estate agency industry. In a statement on Monday (Oct 21), the CEA said Ngu Ping Chuan James Ethan of PropNex Realty behaved unprofessionally and unethically while facilitating the purchase of a condominium unit in the eastern part of Singapore between 2016 and 2017. The 39-year-old failed to represent his client's best interest and instead prioritised his own profit from commissions, the CEA said. «Ngu's wrongful conduct caused his client to suffer a loss or disadvantage of about $20,000 to $30,000.» In 2016, Ngu was engaged by a client to look for a condominium unit in the eastern part of Singapore that is more than 800 sq ft in size with a selling price of about $900,000. They viewed a unit in March 2017 that had a price tag of $1.04 million.

Upon closer inspection, the driver turned out to be an «uncle» while his passengers were a group of ladies.

About 10 involved in fight in Tanjong Pagar, with one allegedly using a knife

SINGAPORE - About 10 people were involved in a fight along Tanjong Pagar Road, with one of them said to have used a knife while another was seen with a bleeding ear, Shin Min Daily News reported on Sunday (Oct 20). A 46-second video of the fight, which happened at 3am last Friday morning, was circulated on Facebook. In the video, three or four people are seen fighting on the road. They are then chased by another group that seems to be trying to get them to stop. A man in a white shirt and another in black are shown fighting furiously. They occasionally fall but immediately get up. The man in white then tries to escape, but falls in the middle of the road. Another man, who appears to be holding a weapon, can be seen pushing the man in black and swinging the weapon at him. The man in black flees. The commotion attracted curious onlookers, with a woman going forward and advising them to stop. The fight eventually subsided.

Workers' Party chief Pritam Singh, PA grassroots adviser spar over allegation of 'double standards'

SINGAPORE - A barrier-free access ramp that took seven years to complete has led to Workers' Party chief Pritam Singh sparring with a People's Association (PA) grassroots adviser over what Mr Singh said are «double standards» for funding community improvement projects in opposition wards. In a Facebook post last Tuesday (Oct 15), Mr Singh insinuated that the ramp at Block 108 Bedok Reservoir Road - first proposed in 2012 - was delayed because it was mooted by the opposition party. This prompted the PA grassroots adviser, Mr Chua Eng Leong, to hit back last Saturday at Mr Singh's «unsubstantiated» remarks, which he also labelled as «politically divisive and factually inaccurate». Mr Chua was part of the losing People's Action Party (PAP) team that ran against the WP in Aljunied GRC during the 2015 General Election.
