smack the bugger

I seriously detest parents who show no effort whatsoever with regards to their kids’ behavior in public places. All right if you can’t keep your kid from screaming at the top of his/her voice. But to let her jump up and down on train/ bus seats, press the alighting bell repeatedly and swing like a primate from the handlebars, something must be wrong with the way you are bring up your kid. Since we love to fine, these parents should be slapped with some fine or something, just for the sake of it.

Genting Singapore

Channel News Asia: Genting-Star Cruises consortium wins Sentosa integrated resort project,

So the haze and all that was really just a promotional bid to get the Singapore government to accept the Genting-Star Cruises proposal. I mean, you do have to let people know how it really feels like in Genting Highlands to understand how it is going to be light.

But seriously, the Integrated Resort bid is over and we will get our own Universal Studios. After all that media attention, it is kind of disappointing that we will not get our very own Las Vegas in Singapore. Still I suppose this fits in with what the government has planned since the start.

I can’t wait to see what rides they will have, as well as the revival of Sentosa.

..and the rest of us are watching you too

Adding on to Jer’s entry about installing cctv cameras in trains, I’ve noticed that they have lately installed similar devices on public buses. I really wonder what they are being used for. Voyeuring bus drivers who use it for a little entertainment by watching couples engaging in Public Displays of Affection?

Call it their own twisted form of TVMobile.

I’m watching you.

What’s that?

Boarded the train the other day and lo and behold, these black boxes were staring back down at me while I boarded.

For a minute I thought I was in the world of Phillip K. Dick’s Minority Report with all the retina scanners.

Guess they were just security cameras. Whatever for I’ve no clue, because I’m sure terrorists would be petrified if they knew that SMRT has been religiously broadcasting content on how they would blow up a train.
