I am seldom surprised by ragging photos or videos, having been sanitised via my own experiences. Coming from an all-boys secondary school and having been through NS, I seen my fair share. However the screen grabs below from two ragging videos I saw on youtube truly disturbed me...
The two videos mentioned are particularly shocking to me because of two factors. First of all, the perpetrators are practically all females, with a few boys in the background cheering. I never knew women are into such cruelty as well. Second, it occurred in bright daylight at a crowded school canteen - where everybody can see! The poor victim was tied to a chin-up bar and attacked mercilessly. All in the name of “celebrating” her birthday.

Here I am paying tribute to the greatest computer company in the world - Apple Computer. Here's to the insanely great 30 years that has come and gone, and to many many more to come.

CNA reported that STB is marketing "Celebrate Singapore" overseas in a month-long extravaganza to celebrate Singapore's 40th birthday.
Guntmar Kerbl, Executive Director of Business Development at Aerial Trenz, said: "People were willing to pay $5,000 for this opportunity because it is something that if you get to do, you will get to see Singapore from above, from Jurong all the way to Changi Airport.
Wah. Jurong all the way to Changi - $5,000 any takers?
And oh, look at the photo...yes, I know, Uniquely Singapore.
