Was documenting a friend's visit in Singapore and was taking a video
of him making
a purchase at Paris Baguette at Terminal 2... when this EXTREMELY RUDE cashier
shouted at me that taking photos was not allowed.
Atrocious customer service.
Well done, Paris Baguette Singapore.
This strip made the editors nervous:
What if there really was a self-driving car accident
on the day the cartoon was printed?
So they decided not to publish it.
Singapore is a highly built-up high-rise environment.
Apart from killer litter, falling windows also pose a danger
to people walking below.
When a window falls from a height because of a lack of maintenance,
the homeowner can be fined up to $10,000, or jailed up to a year.
On top of that, the owner can be fined up to $5,000, or jailed up
to six months, if the aluminium rivets had not been replaced with
stainless steel ones.
Singapore had a public skydiving event at Palawan Beach.
Skydiver wannabes enjoyed a six-minute tandem jump from 3,000m.
A survey by an online portal found one in five workers
in Singapore admitted faking illnesses such as headaches or
stomach cramps to get an MC.
Of these, about half said they would get medical certificates
at least three times a year.
Just over 40 per cent of fakers said they have called in sick
because they "didn’t feel like working", while a third shun work
because they "had other plans".
A fraction of them get MCs because they overslept or are
burned out at work.
The three most common excuses that workers give for the
ill-gotten day-off are headache/ giddiness, diarrhoea/food poisoning
and stomach cramps.
There was quite a handful of salacious happenings
in Singapore in 2012.
I gathered the headlines and composed them into a little cartoon.
Naturally, due to the subject matter, it was rejected for print
in the national papers.
So, here it is. Enjoy!
