Singapore General Election: My thoughts

In his editorial for Today yesterday (yes, that was intentional), journalism stalwart PN Balji asks: “Moving on, what kind of a society do we want?” Balji was obviously writing about the Singapore General Elections – Singaporeans go to the polls today.

Full disclosure, speed trap alert!

I just received an SMS alert from The Star which reads: Deputy IGP: No more hidden speed traps. In a bid to be more transparent, motorist will be warned about traps ahead. I immediately tweeted it out, adding my own reaction: Awesome! About time! Picture taken from zieak on Flickr under Creative Commons License. I […]

Bootcamp bullies: Lesson from the Princess Boy

Yesterday, my heart broke. I read tweets regarding the Terengganu State Education Department sending 66 boys – identified for being effeminate and having feminine tendencies – to a bootcamp “aimed at helping them behave in a proper manner”.

Stop talking - just do it.

This is going to be a short post but I wanted to share with you a two things with the same message. This is a message that I feel very strongly about. Of late, I’ve been hearing strains of the same thought across the local social media sphere, and I hope that it really catches […]

P!nk's new video F**kin' Perfect is F**king Perfect

I know that I’ve been posting a lot of things related to suicide of late but considering the many, many cases we’ve been hearing of late, it is obviously an issue we need to talk about more.
