Malaysian people hate Singapore for various reasons. One of them is that Singaporeans are fond of claiming that they are superior to Malaysia as a country. Their basis for this postulation is their efficient public transport, totalitarian government, stringent pursuit of education and superior exchange rate. Some of these are things that Malaysians could debate but it would cause more bad than good through comparison. The usual retort of a Malaysian person is “Your country is a pirated version of ours”.

#64: Y2K Solved In 1999 the Singapore Straits Times reported that a 17-year-old high school student had one-upped all the major software corporations of the world by creating a small computer program that would easily solve the Y2K bug... Unfortunately the boy and his ingenious program didn't exist. Quick-witted readers would have noticed that 'Polo Flair' was an anagram for 'April Fool.'

It’s scary what you can find with Google Earth. Apparently, I was right all those times I suspected Imperial invasions in Singapore. They’ve already established a base here, in Simei! The proof is irrefutable! East Point Shopping Centre is an Imperial base! >:(
On the left is an aerial view of East Point; on the right is the Imperial logo.

Wait, no, it's a trap!"

^tamago^ said take ur time to read the whole series, and maybe other countries. Its interesting to read about Singapore through the eyes of a visitor (even if there are many humorous mistakes in his description of Singapore)
there are legends that everything is forbidden in Singapore : you have death penalty for selling pornography, drug dealing, prostitution, and many years of jail for some type of political activities, for carrying guns as well as very high fines for spitting, littering, or smoking in public places

When you watch TalkingCock again now, nearly 5 years on, how do you feel about it?
We think any artist looks back on their early work wishing, "Aiyah, should have done this!" or "Should have done that!" or "What on earth possessed us?"
TalkingCock is a very raw work - we did it with no formal training and no idea what we were really doing. But because of our innocence, it became the best film school anyone could ever hope for. We were exposed to every aspect of filmmaking, from the artistic to the business side to even simple practical things.
Recommended by Anonymous Coward: "Filmmakers/humourists Colin Goh and Woo Yen Yen refleft on their first movie TalkingCock, screening this Wednesday June 21st as part of Cine.SG. The filmmakers and members of the cast will be present for a Q&A."

S.T.U.P.I.D: Stands for "Singaporean Terrorist United People's Institute of Destruction". This is a video project by a group of Malaysians.
Recommended by jasperthedummy: "It's hard to find really funny Singapore-Malaysian humour, because many people are too afraid to create humour out of political subjects. This is really some funny crap."

Haro Singapore! said:
Foreign Bangra workers like to sleep in the open near the construction sites they work in. They lie sprawled in various positions, just like vegetables thrown on the ground.
Over the past week, as I walked past Junction 8 Shopping Center, I noticed these people sleeping next to the wall. Yesterday, I realized that they were using sleeping bags. Bangras don't use sleeping bags.
Funny article (with pics).

(Former Monty Python Michael) Palin spends merely a few hours in Singapore on his round-the-world in 80 days trip, but does learn from a couple of Indian folks that Singaporeans "work hard" and that "nobody cheats". He does spend mere miliseconds in Singapore and - heavens - sees some litter and drunks, which he thought weren't allowed on our streets, before he boards aboat to continue his Phileas Fogg imitation.
About Michael Palin's very brief stopover in Singapore on one of his travels.

On Monday, my colleague found an African grey parrot parked under one of the tables outside the staff room. The fella was pretty tame, metal ring around his right foot and all, and readily hopped onto any arm proffered, perch-like, before him. On the other hand, he would also take mildly screeching offence at anyone who tried to pet him.

JLLT shows us how to take the various kinds of photos you commonly find on Friendster profiles. From Sexy to Demure, to Mysterious and Blurry. Oh, and even Disgusting.
The Paris Hilton Look® Other than wearing next to nothing, you need to have a Mouth Half-Opened Style®. Of course, you need to give off a look that is synonymous with the bedroom. No mean feat, but practice makes perfect, sugar. Here's a little trick: look sideways; never directly at the camera for that suggestion of having a secret that everyone already know.
