Aditya Bhatia

Aditya Bhatia was the name of the teenager who has posted in his Facebook post a threat to bomb Marina Bay Integrated Resorts. I think Aditya Bhatia is really the last person to round up Singapore 2012 which is characterized by lots of SEX and careless online chatter and not Michael Palmer and Laura Ong. Hence I will put update my earlier post on Singapore 2012 top news makers with Aditya Bhatia. I hope that the authorities can send a clear signal to Singaporeans and foreigners that such a serious comment cannot be tolerated!

Bomb threat made on Marina Bay Sands

Year 2012 is full of happenings pertaining to sex and online careless remarks, just read my post here. Just as we thought we can close off year 2012 with Michael Palmer's saga, a police report was made against a boy who has threatened bombs on Marina Bay Sand. Report the report here. I hope the police can take a decisive and deterent action as such a comment is really very dangerous!

With thousands of Singaporeans heading to Marina Bay tonight to usher in the New Year, the boy's  remarks are really offensive!

Marina Bay 2013 countdown: raining heavily on 31 Dec 12:

It has been raining for hours this afternoon, I wonder whether the Marina Bay 2013 countdown will have to be scaled down due to the incessant rain. I am not sure whether the rain will continue till midnight 2013, but I am pretty much sure that the rain is a wet blanket for the thousands of Singaporeans who have planned to usher in the New Year with loved ones at Marina Bay.

Singapore Happy New Year 2013

Today is the last day of year 2012.Yes it is 31 Dec 2012 and humanity has survived the so-called Mayan 12 Dec 2012. Like a cliché, every time, when it comes to the last day of a year, many people will start to reflect on what they have done for the year: their achievements, the areas in which they could have done better; then they will go setting new resolutions for the coming year.

Singapore News 2012

We will be ushering in year 2013 in just 2 days. This year, if there is one word to describe Singapore's top news, this word will be: Deviant as:

a) there are so many prominent personalities such as civil servants, prinicipals and even MPs involving in "not proper" relationship with the opposite sex

b) there are offensive comments coming from people like Sun Xu and Amy Cheong

c) and last but not least, some SMRT bus drivers even orchestrated an "illegal strike" not seen here in decades!

Let us review the top news of Singapore in year 2012:

AIM & Aljunied-Hougang Town Council

The verbal exchange between AIM and the Aljunied-Hougang Town Council has continued, with each side giving their take. The whole issue of the exchange centres on a particular piece of software used for financial transaction of the town councils here in Singapore.

ninethirty by awfully chocolate

My family and I tucked into the rich and savourly chocolate offerings at ninethirty in Joo Chiat after a sumptious meal of Laksa at Katong yesterday night. To be honest, a chocolate tart at $6 was not cheap but the taste is really awfully chocolate.

New Year Resolutions 2013

With just a few days to a brand new year, it is natural for many to turn reflective, reflecting on what they have achieved in year 2012. It is also natural for people to start crafting New Year resolutions for year 2013. I would think that crafting New Year resolutions is more like a custom.

SMRT engaging Cisco security guards?

In the past, whenever I walked past the fare gates of the MRT stations, I would see security staff donning “SMRT” uniforms on standby to check on commuters. I would lament on how these security staff would just check on luggages (at least on the occasions I saw them in action) tugged along by commuters as though in today’s world, those intending to do damage to our society would have still have large devices to perpetuate their acts.

Desmond Kuek's new team: what Desmond should do next?

In today's Straits Times, the lineup of Desmond Kuek's (SMRT's CEO) key management team was revealed. There were a few former colonels in the lineup which sparked some netizens and Singaporeans wondering whether military management style will govern SMRT next.

Snowing Christmas in Singapore

Today is Christmas Day! Merry Christmas to all of you! Today feels like snowing Christmas today as it is very very cold today, the coldest ever I think in recent months.

A check with the NEA Weather website says that today's the maximum temperature is 29 degree celsius with the minimum temperature at 24 degree celsius!

MediaCorp's Rush Hour .. on Christmas Eve

I was very surprised that tonight was Christmas eve, Mediacorp still showed the movie "Rush Hour" on Channel 5. This movie was shown so many times on our Channel 5 and to think that on Christmas eve, instead of showing some new Christmas-centric movies, we still have "Rush Hour" as the movie for Christmas!

Aleksandar Duric- AFF Suzuki Cup 2012

Aleksandar Duric hoped that Singaporeans will remember him as one who has given everything to Singapore as the Lions returned home today in a victory parade.

Unknown to many Singaporeans, Aleksandar Duric is the best striker in the world according to this report.

Christmas Orchard Road Singapore

Yesterday, my family and I went to Orchard Road to experience Christmas in Singapore.

Christmas Orchard Singapore

Singaporeans Unhappiest people in the world- Gallup

In a Gallup survey, Singaporeans are found to be the Unhappiest people in the world. I am not surprised by the survey. I believe Singaporeans are the unhappiest people in the world due to THREE reasons.

Rats at Golden Mile Shopping Centre

After Orchard Road shopping centres and Ang Mo Kio Hub, rats are reported being seen at Golden Miles Shopping Centre. Now with not one but at least three shopping centres being found to have rats, I believe the problem may be a symptom of a larger problem (i.e. the overall rat population in Singapore may have increased).

Steven Koh Yong Chiah

Steven Koh Yong Chiah, the principal of River Valley High School has been redeployed to Ministry of Education HQ to undertake a position of Principal (Special Project) while he assists CPIB in its investigation. Again, another case of civil servant who is involved in CPIB investigations. This year is really a record year for errant civil servants who were found guilty of sex offences or corruptions.

Marry & Marriages on 21 Dec 12 (21-12-12): Mayan end of the world?

At least 126 couples here in Singapore will marry on 21 Dec 12 according to the ROM website. If we write this date, this date is written as 21.12.12. However, 21 Dec 12 definitely has another more popular meaning to you and I. Yes, on this date, maybe you and I as well as the almost 7 Billion people on our planet will vanish together for 21 Dec 12, the end of the Mayan calendar (and some say time) is widely speculated to be the date when human civilisation ends.

Laura Ong

Laura Ong's saga which commenced last Wednesday has left many Singaporeans and netizens talking. Many blogs, posts have sprung up in the internet, carrying comments and photos of Laura Ong. I agree with Yam Ah Mee that we should give Laura Ong a space now to move forwards in her own life.

Michael Palmer Hip Hop

Though Michael Palmer has resigned over an affair with Laura Ong, I believe the good works done by the hardworking MP as reported in the Straits Times will still be felt by the residents of Punggol East. Michael Palmer also grooved to the beat, doing Hip-Hop dance with fellow P65 MPs some years back.

Laura Ong, Michael Palmer

Laura Ong and Michael Palmer sex saga seems to be over all in just 3 days. This whole Laura Ong and Michael Palmer saga started on Wednesday 12 Dec 12 when Michael Palmer held a press confereence to announce the "grave mistake" he had committed. On the same day, Laura Ong was identified as the person whom Michael Palmer had an extra-martial affair and her photos were splashed on media, online and offline.

Laura Ong Blog

According to a news, someone set up a Laura Ong Blog showcasing the photos of Laura Ong. I also came to read that Laura is just 33 years old and not 37 years old which I have read earlier. At just 33 years old, Laura Ong is already a Director!

Laura Ong: Michael Palmer's mistress?

Laura Ong, the constituency director at Pasir Ris West Constituency Office is reportedly to be the lady whom Michael Palmer has an affair with.

Laura Ong seems young to me. At such a young age, she has already becomes a constituency director, hence I wonder whether she is a scholar? However, from this website with many of her photos, it is said she is 37 years old. Read more here.

Why the World will not end on 21 Dec 12?

21 Dec 12 is the end of the Mayan calendar and it is the date which many believe to be the end of the world. If the end of the world is already just 10 days ahead of us, and you subscribe to this belief, you would not have spent a minute of your (and my) very very very precious remaining 10 days of our lives reading this post of mine. You would probably be spending all your monies in all possible ways that makes you happy or very very happy.

Bus fares increase

It was reported that bus fares will increase next year so that the salaries of bus drivers can be raised. I am very disappointed that commuters have to bear the responsibilities of paying drivers more. I really believe public transport operators SBS and SMRT should foot that increase in their employees' salaries rather than passing that increase to commuters.

Breaking Dawn Part 2

Yesterday, my family and I went to watch “Breaking Dawn Part 2”. This is the final instalment of Twilight and its saga. Twilight was first shown in year 2008 which was followed by New Moon (2009), Eclipse (2010), Breaking Dawn Part 1 (2011) and Breaking Dawn Part 2 (2012). We watched almost every instalment of Twilight and its saga!

Rainy season ushers in more mosquitoes and colds

These few days, it has been raining in the evenings. I believe it has to do with the fact that Christmas is coming. However even though Christmas is upon us, this year, I believe it is more rainy than last year's. Climate change, many people attribute almost everything unpleasant to the environment with this generic theme.
