$100 only? Singaporeans tickled by 'ungrateful' kid

A father initially had his pride over his daughter’s award dashed after believing that she was unappreciative of the monetary gift — she kept repeating “$100 only” after receiving the prize. But it wasn't what he thought.  On Saturday (Jan 18), Tong Yee’s daughter was conferred an award by the Ministry of Education for displaying good progress in school, which meant getting a nice certificate and an injection of $100 into her Edusave account, a pretty decent amount for a Primary 2 student.  To Tong’s surprise and bitter disappointment, his daughter didn’t appear to be excited about the award, he wrote in a now-viral Facebook post.  “It’s no big deal. It’s only $100,” she remarked when he asked how she was feeling about the prize. Even after he tried to reassure her that it’s the recognition (and not just the money) that matters, she kept repeating “it really is only a $100” over and over again.  “I was quite disappointed,” wrote Tong. “And I began reflecting on how I had raised my daughter and how I was going to teach her about humility and gratitude and thankfulness and really what all this meant for larger society…”

Army women who survived Tekong share how they handled their period in the jungle

Think you have it bad when Aunt Flo decides to pay a visit? Before complaining about typical menstrual maladies like cramps, backaches or breakouts, you might want to spare a thought for women who probably have it way worse. We're talking about the brave ladies who have dedicated themselves to the service of protecting our nation, and part of their training involves roughing it out in the damp jungles of Pulau Tekong. Already undergoing a programme designed to test their physical and mental limits, those who are suay (unlucky) enough to have their period strike at the same time have no choice but to suck it up and push on. Picture trudging through muddy grounds, «feeding» mosquitoes and carrying a 10kg field pack in the humid heat of the tropics — all while trying to ignore that squishy sensation in your nether regions.

Endless visiting: What AsiaOne staff wish Chinese New Year is like

Numerous house visits, endless feasting, and somewhat awkward chats with distant relatives — we go through the same routine each time Chinese New Year rolls about. The celebration is probably fun for kids who get to stuff their faces with yummy snacks and fill their pockets with ang baos, but Chinese New Year for us grown-ups? Not so fun. After spring-cleaning our houses, stocking up on sinfully delicious goodies, and sprucing ourselves up, it's safe to say that most of us are all tired out from all the preparations. Ever wished you could be doing something else during the holidays? You're not the only one. We asked our colleagues: if you could do it differently, how would you celebrate Chinese New Year? MORE ACTIVITIES, PLEASE While most family and friends are happy to catch up with each other during house visits, perhaps the hosts can prepare some activities such as a round of mahjong for their guests. «Have activities to fill the time instead of just waiting around all day.» - JayJay TOO MUCH OF A GOOD THING

Handmade CNY decorations at Fusionopolis stolen within a day of display

Public art installations or a free-for-all? Unfortunately, it seems like some can't tell the difference. A recent outdoor art initiative was derailed when most of the crocheted art pieces on display were stolen, organisers Yarn Bombing Singapore wrote in a Facebook post on Jan 19. The Chinese New Year-themed decorations, which included anthropomorphic ingots, mandarin oranges and mice, had been put up at the taxi stand at Fusionopolis One on Jan 17. The adorable characters were created by volunteers as part of a partnership between Yarn Bombing Singapore, a community of yarn-enthusiasts, and JTC Corporation, which manages Fusionopolis. While there was no signage on-site, the Yarn Bombing Singapore logo was displayed on the centre topper, a Despicable Me minion dressed in red overalls. By the next morning, however, only five of the 16 toppers which had adorned the bollards at the taxi stand remained.

Pirates on sampans loot barge twice in Singapore Strait

Pirates on sampans struck in the Singapore Strait again on Saturday, targeting a barge pulled by the tug boat Kim Hock Tug 9 twice in five hours. While the pirates did not confront the crew members, they were able to escape with several pieces of scrap metal. In an incident alert yesterday, the Regional Cooperation Agreement on Combating Piracy and Armed Robbery against Ships in Asia's Information Sharing Centre (ReCAAP ISC) said the same barge laden with scrap metal was targeted twice in the east-bound lane of the strait. At about 11.30am, seven pirates were spotted on the barge being towed from Singapore to Vietnam. When another tug boat approached the barge, the pirates fled in three sampans with some scrap metal. A few hours later at about 4pm, seven pirates were again spotted on the same barge, and two Singapore Police Coast Guard craft were dispatched to intercept them. But the pirates again evaded capture, escaping on their sampans with more scrap metal. Both incidents happened about 20km apart in the waters between Singapore and Batam.

After 18-year wait, NSman remembers to return $80 borrowed from officer

18 years is an awfully long time to wait for someone to repay their debt, especially when the sum is just $80.  Despite the long wait, Derick Khoo's patience bore fruit when his debtor finally returned the sum he owed.  Though it seemed like a small issue, Khoo was so touched by the other's change in attitude that he had to share about the incident in a Facebook post last Friday (Jan 18).  The debtor in question had been one of Khoo's former charges as a national serviceman in the Singapore Armed Forces back in 2002. During one of their 1-to-1 interviews, he had asked to borrow money from Khoo, citing that the pay from the army wasn't enough. Even after completing his national service stint, the man had yet to return Khoo the money. The man later changed his number and was uncontactable. At that point, Khoo had already given up on receiving his money. «If I prepare to lend I prepare to lost (sic) it all,» he wrote, allowing the matter to pass just like that.

Pritam Singh makes his case for why the public should vote for Workers' Party in next GE

SINGAPORE - Workers' Party chief Pritam Singh has laid out his party's plan to woo voters in the upcoming election, saying it will field quality candidates who will ask tough questions in Parliament and manage their town councils well. These candidates will come from a range of backgrounds and also life experience, he added without naming any of them. He said he believes they will become competent MPs who «will do Singapore and our people proud». In his speech at the WP's annual members forum on Sunday (Jan 19), Mr Singh rallied party members to ready themselves for the coming general election, including some who are tipped to be new candidates. He also made his pitch for why Singaporeans should vote for the WP. The party's value proposition for voters, he said, is that it can ensure a better balanced Parliament. To that end, it is important for the party to have at least one-third of the elected seats, so that the People's Action Party cannot change the Constitution at its pleasure like it can today, he added. While the general election is due by April next year, it is widely expected to happen this year.

Gambling site promoted by Ah Boys To Men actor blocked

A mystery box website offering electronic gadgets, fashion wear and beauty products as prizes has been blocked here after a Singaporean actor promoted it on YouTube. Drakemall, a virtual mystery box website headquartered in Ireland, was promoted by Ah Boys To Men actor Ridhwan Azman in a sponsored YouTube video on Dec 22 last year. The site, which touts itself as a «mystery box marketplace», promises users the chance to win gadgets by opening virtual boxes that they can buy at prices ranging from less than US$1 (S$1.35) to about US$140 (S$188). Responding to queries from The New Paper, a police spokesman said the authorities had assessed Drakemall to be a remote gambling service. The site was blocked sometime last week following a directive by the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA). IPHONE 11 In the 13-minute video by Ridhwan, who goes by the username Ridhwannabe, he claimed to have won an iPhone 11 by opening a box for $6.50. The phone's retail price is about $1,000. He also takes users through the sign-up process, encouraging them to use the referral code with his name for extra perks.
