PRC WAITER COULDN'T SPEAK ENGLISH, YELLED AT US FOR BEING UNABLE TO UNDERSTAND HIM

THEREALSINGAPORE 16 April 2014 - 10:23pm

My mother and her friend patronized an EAT outlet at Orchard Central on 12 April 2014, Saturday, between 6-7pm. While ordering their food, they were served by a staff with strong mainland Chinese accent. As his accent was strong, my mother was unable to understand him properly, hence told him so. Instead of repeating himself clearly, he reacted by raising his voice and loudly asking my mother if she is deaf. 


NEA'S NEW HIGH RISE LITTER MONITORING CAMERAS ARE AN INVASION OF PRIVACY!

THEREALSINGAPORE 16 April 2014 - 10:11pm

I have been hearing the NEA camera system installed on ground floor for catching high rise litter bugs and thought it was a good idea. But recently, I saw something strange on the other side of my house - a camera system setup on the top storey pointing into residential flats. Upon close inspection of the system, it was installed by NEA. My question - Do they know that installing the camera from a top-down position will compromise residents privacy?

THEREALSINGAPORE 16 April 2014 - 10:02pm

Kishore Mahbubani’s academic viewpoint of reality in ST’s “Three stories to strengthen the Singapore spirit” is really humourous. Kishore says if there is a war, Singaporeans will “save the lives of people who are the strangers they meet in MRT trains and buses”. It really makes one wonder how he came to such a conclusion. A couple of years ago, I asked my teenage son to find out if any of his friends are willing to die for the country. Guess what? Nobody ‘keechiu’.

UNI AS A TOURIST ATTRACTION? PRC TOURISTS FLOOD THAI UNI CLASSES AND MAKE MESS IN CAFETERIA

THEREALSINGAPORE 16 April 2014 - 6:17pm

The bucolic, once laid-back campus of one of Thailand's top universities is under a security clampdown. Not against a terrorist threat, but against Chinese tourists. Thousands have clambered aboard student buses at Chiang Mai University, made a mess in cafeterias and sneaked into classes to attend lectures. Someone even pitched a tent by a picturesque lake. The reason: "Lost in Thailand," a 2012 slapstick comedy partly shot on campus that is China's highest-grossing homegrown movie ever.
