Have you been elbowed rudely by someone going in the opposite direction as you tried to get off an MRT train? Have you staggered back onto the train despite trying to get off, because some charging bull of a commuter had pushed his/her way in with such vehemence? Have you worried for the safety of the children/elderly persons/pregnant women around you who might be dangerously thrown off balance by such aggressive train-boarding tactics?
Then it's time for you to do something about it: Push back!
Recommended by Mr Moron: "Her philosophy of dealing with inconsiderate, forceful brats who love to shove their way onto trains may seem along the lines of "an eye for an eye; a tooth for a tooth" (which it is, in a way), but it also really is the best way to deal with those annoying chaps who forget that commuters have to come out of the trains before they get to go in!"

Angry Doctor said:
I remember what it was like taking a bus 20 years ago. There was no air-con, the bus was rickety, and it wasn’t always there when you needed it. When it did arrive, you had to share the bus with lots of other people. The bus didn’t take you straight to where you wanted to; it took a winding route and stopped for other people too because the service didn’t serve you alone. At the end of the trip, however, you got where you wanted to go.

My mum asked a construction worker from the nearby construction site to help her cement a spot just outside the house.
He readily agreed.She then entered the house for a while. When she got out, she beckoned him over, and pressed a ten dollar note in his hand. He looked positively radiant then. He was flashing his pearly-whites, eyes crinkling at the corners, tool in hand ready to embark on the task he was assigned.

Oh, I am so happy today because Mr Wong punished me. I was caught talking in class and man, when he noticed that I was talking, he called me up in front of the whole class and scolded me in front of the whole class. In my school, talking in class in a very serious offence and you will get caned for it.

Hang Yong relates his encounter with a Ah Beng looking chap and a student on the bus. The student was blocking the way for others to move to the rear.
I screamed to those at the back "EH! CAN MOVE IN ANOT?"
And you know what? The student (yes, 100% student! wearing secondary school uniform!) stared at me, like he would stab me with a knife if he has one in his hands right now.
Just then, right behind me, a chao ah beng shouted "Siong! Li Siong Similanjiao? Lan pa dua, buay kia lor ah? Go mai lip ki, lim peh eh ka dan li!"*

They say you can't change the world. You can only change your attitude. Hence, to make this world a better place or at least a more camera-friendly place for everyone - travelers and passers-by alike, I am writing this entry for everyone's benefit. You and Your Camera 101. You don't need anything to learn here. Just a few minutes to absorb what I have to say and a little effort next time someone asks you to take them a picture.

Singapore2025 is a site that wants you to imagine a Singapore you would like to live in.
The time has come for Singaporeans to imagine for ourselves who we can and want to be, and where the country can and should go...Imagine Singapore 2025 came into being as a space to rekindle our nobler self, to imagine a future that we can be proud of.

After intense deliberation and surprisingly no SMS vote from the public, the organizers have decided to include youth as part of the sex show exhibition. But they will promote abstinence. Organizer: “You see dis…..dis the male sex organ. You take dis and insert it into the female sex organ. Ok? Very important to remember hor, cannot insert into male sex organ ok. If you do, you will ostracized by Singapore society, you cannot party, you might get AIDS and most importantly, give the impression that our gahmen is not doing its job in managing the AIDS problem. Everyone understand? Ok good. But dun try this wif your girlfriend ah. Must wait till you get married ok?"
