Where to get the cheapest diapers, baby food, bites, and formula milk: Retail vs online vs Johor Bahru

The Seedly Team went to Johor Bahru last weekend, where we hired a Lok Lok van and ate close to 1,000 sticks of deep-fried mushrooms, bacon, meatballs, and man tous. While most of us shop for a variety of cakes, tau sa pia, and Eureka popcorns to bring home during the trip, our content strategist Sudhan was out on a different mission. With a large, field-pack bag in tow, Sudhan piled his bag to the brim with baby food and snacks. Before this, he was considering bringing a huge suitcase in tow, to buy diapers for his cute 7 month-old baby boy. To him, it was worth making the trip across the causeway, as it means saving a few bucks on expensive baby products. Yet, is the effort worth it? How much do you actually save by doing so? I decided to compare the prices of diapers, baby food, snacks, and formula milk, to find out where to get the best deals: Whether it's Online, Retail, or in Johor Bahru. TL;DR: WHERE TO GET THE CHEAPEST DIAPERS, BABY FOOD, BITES, AND FORMULA MILK

Singapore mum's traumatic childbirth story: Baby was born blue

Every mum longs to hear her newborn baby's first cry. But the birth of Michelle Kee's firstborn, Vera, was met with a deafening silence. «My baby didn't even cry when the doctor tried giving her oxygen to help her breathe. I noticed her skin was all blue [from the lack of oxygen],» shares the first-time mother, 30, a nurse. Having breathed in some meconium before birth, Vera was whisked away to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) even before Michelle could hold her. Meconium is the sticky greenish black stool that a newborn baby first passes after birth. The faeces had entered Vera's airways and lungs. Most babies pass their first stool in the first 24 hours after delivery, says Dr Joseph Manuel Gomez, head and senior consultant at NICU at KK Women's and Children's Hospital. But some babies who experience stress before or during birth may pass meconium into the amniotic fluid before they are born, he adds. Amniotic fluid is the clear, colourless liquid surrounding the baby in the womb.

'Sugar dating' website from Japan opens branch in Singapore

A sugar dating website from Japan that aims to match young women in Singapore with well-heeled men has launched its service here. Calling itself a «luxury dating club», Universe Club operates 14 branches across Japan, with more than 7,000 women in its database and about 3,000 registered male members. It started operations in Singapore a month ago, said a spokesperson. Sugar dating refers to a money-for-love arrangement, where young women usually known as «sugar babies» date (usually) much older men — «sugar daddies» — in return for cash or material comforts. A scan of Universe Club's Singapore memberships page on Thursday (Dec 5) showed brief profiles of 37 women accompanied by full-body photos, sans faces. One description of a profile titled «The serious and focused lady» reads: «A model looking for opportunities for her career. In search also to widen her network.» Another photo of a woman in a more revealing pose has the caption: «Loves to be with any sugar daddy that will be able to support her in any way. A sophisticated sugar baby.»

A behind-the-scenes look at Amazon’s new (and oddly serene) warehouse in Singapore

The year’s Black Friday and Cyber Monday events may be in the rearview mirror, but the engines of the retail industry must chug on. Especially so for the biggest retailer on the planet, Amazon.  It took some time, but the e-commerce juggernaut finally made its way to Singapore in October with a bona fide local online store, its first digital outpost in Southeast Asia. It wasn’t easy, of course; the region has long been saturated with Chinese and homegrown (albeit with Chinese backing) online retailers. Despite Amazon's dominance in the United States, the likes of Lazada, Shopee, Taobao and Tokopedia are the more familiar names in our neck of the woods.  But what Bezos wants, Bezos gets. Two years after the Amazon Prime fast-delivery service membership programme was launched here, Amazon.sg is officially here, opening the floodgates to millions upon millions of products available for purchase from both local and international vendors.

Months of planning wasted after Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon disrupts multiple weddings

A year of meticulous planning for a couple's special day went down the drain after guests and vendors alike failed to turn up on time for their wedding on Nov 30. The reason? Road closures throughout the city thanks to the Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon. Although the previous 17 iterations of the race were held in the morning, organiser Ironman Asia changed this year's flag off time to 6pm in order to boost the appeal of the race. It also hoped to be inducted into the Abbott World Marathon Majors club — a series of the world's largest and most prestigious races. Unfortunately for Jianming Lee, that meant the roads leading to his wedding venue at Marina Mandarin were closed off from as early as 1.30pm. In a post on Facebook, Lee shared how his wedding, originally scheduled to start at 7pm, was devoid of guests, including his own parents. «I went down at 7.10pm and saw nobody at the cocktail area,» he told Mothership.

Condo killer litter: Aussie allegedly linked to fatal case faces extra charge of causing hurt in 'religiously aggravated' incident

SINGAPORE - An Australian man allegedly involved in a condominium fatal killer litter case now faces an extra charge of causing hurt to a woman in the same incident, with the new offence described in court documents as being «religiously aggravated». Appearing in court via video-link, Andrew Gosling, 47, was charged on Thursday (Dec 5) with one count of causing hurt with an instrument, injuring a woman, identified as Ms Manisah, at a 35-storey condominium in Spottiswoode Park Road. Earlier this year, he was charged with one count of voluntarily causing grievous hurt with an instrument. Gosling had allegedly thrown a glass wine bottle from a lift landing on the seventh storey of the Spottiswoode 18 condominium towards a table near the barbecue area on the fifth storey at around 8.30pm on Aug 18. The bottle is said to have struck Ms Manisah, causing bruises to her right shoulder, and also hit delivery driver Nasiari Sunee's head, causing a skull fracture that led to his death. The 73-year-old driver was at a housewarming party of a relative when the bottle hit him just as he was about to eat.

Young soldiers are no 'strawberry' generation, says Chief Commando Officer

SINGAPORE - The young are sometimes dismissed as the «strawberry generation» but Chief Commando Officer, Colonel Kenny Tay, does not share this view. In fact, when talking about the training he has observed, he says the young soldiers under his charge wear heavier body armour, walk longer distances and carry weapons with higher firepower than their counterparts in the past. They also complete back-to-back missions with none falling out. «So how can I say they are the strawberry generation? It dawned upon me that with the correct purpose instilled in them, I think you can get the commitment to defend from them. »And the fact that our training is tough draws them closer together, so that they will fight for one another. So in that way I don't think it's fair to label them as the strawberry generation. Actually they have my respect." Col Tay, who is also commander of the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) Special Operations Task Force, was speaking with reporters on Monday ahead of the commando formation's 50th anniversary parade on Wednesday (Dec 4).

No passports needed: Changi Airport T4 trials facial recognition scanners at checkpoint

Some Singaporean travellers no longer need to present their passports or scan their thumbprints when they return home through Changi Airport Terminal 4 (T4). Under a new contactless immigration trial, eligible Singaporeans just need to verify their identities through scans of their iris and face at an automated lane, the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) announced yesterday. Singapore citizens aged six and above holding passports beginning with the letter K, and whose passports were issued after Jan 1 last year, are eligible for the trial. No prior sign-ups are required. The six-month trial for contactless immigration clearance in T4 started on Nov 25. This is the second such trial, following the Tuas Checkpoint trial which ran from April to October, and involved some 22,500 Singaporean travellers. About 90 per cent of these travellers at the Tuas Checkpoint were able to clear immigration smoothly. The remaining 10 per cent had unsuccessful attempts capturing quality images due to a lack of familiarity with the process.

SIA apologises for 17-hour flight delay that sparked man's viral Facebook rant

One man's online tantrum about a flight delay is taking off — for all the wrong reasons. Facebook user Deep Roy took to Singapore Airlines' (SIA) Facebook page to post a lengthy rant on Dec 1 after his flight to New Delhi was delayed for 17 hours.  But what he didn't expect was to get flamed by Singapore netizens instead. The flight, which had been scheduled to depart Singapore on Nov 29 at 4.25pm was initially delayed due to bad weather, SIA told AsiaOne. That, however, was just the start of a long string of various delays. Shortly after push back from the gate at 6.05pm, the flight crew were alerted to a technical issue with the aircraft's braking system and the plane had to return to the gate due to safety reasons.  Passengers were invited to re-board the aircraft after engineers inspected the aircraft, replaced two components, and ran tests which did not result in any fault indications. However, just after the aircraft left the gate for the second time, the fault indication display came up once again and the flight crew had to return to the gate.
