Thai police detained three university students at Bangkok cinemas on Thursday while at least two theatres in the junta-ruled nation cancelled opening screenings of "The Hunger Games".

THEREALSINGAPORE 21 November 2014 - 12:05pm

Han Hui Hui, Roy Ngerng and Leong Sze Hian watched “Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1″ today, as it opened with much fanfare yesterday in Singapore. Han Hui Hui said “Some people are really “no balls one” – never respond to all the Singaporeans’ questions about everything – including Aljunied town council – instead use some bloggers to respond with misleading info as usual. Why don’t we write an article together?"

TWO CENTS ON SINGAPORE’S POPULATION AND UNHAPPINESS AMONG SINGAPOREANS

THEREALSINGAPORE 21 November 2014 - 11:36am

Maybe you still remember the day the Population White paper was announced. But, even if you know nothing about Population White paper, we’re pretty sure you remember pushing your way through Lucky Plaza at Orchard Road on a Sunday afternoon, surrounded by foreigners or squeezing on a packed bus or a crowded MRT, filled with foreigners.

Within just a span of a decade, there has been a visible spike in the increase of such occurrences. Singaporeans are feeling more like foreigners in their own country and in this article, we will analyse if this feeling is justified.
