A netizen on NUSWhispers posted a list of criteria for her future boyfriend, but ended up getting roasted by netizens, who felt that her expectations were way beyond normal. According to the anonymous netizen, she was recently cheated on by her boyfriend and is now "in the market to find a new boyfriend".

Dear A.S.S. Editor Read with amusement the calls by counsellors and MPs about the need for tighter rules on jackpot machines and operations as these venues provide an easy and accessible outlet for gambling. These venues include heartland football stadiums, suburban malls and social clubs where there are private clubhouses with jackpot rooms filled with jingling fruit machines. Funny, because the calls only come now in the wake of the CAD investigations on the alleged misuse of Club funds…

When Alex first received word about a car explosion at Bukit Batok East Avenue 3 from his friends, he could not believe his luck. Alex, who runs a car rental business, had earlier in the day reported on Facebook about a rogue hirer who went missing with one of his Nissan CNG cars. Only a few hours later the same day, he received messages from friends informing him that the very same man who ran off with his car had been involved in an explosion, with his video splashed all over social…

Dear A.S.S. Editor Some Punggol residents have voiced their displeasure recently that the small decorative area that as supposed to hold trees are actually breeding grounds for mosquitoes. Water have been collected in the area between blocks 289C and 289D at Punggol Place. The residents have also complained that there are now more mosquitoes in the area, and these mosquitoes could have been responsible for the numerous mosquito bites on their children. This could also mean breeding ground…

Salazar said he did this because the woman did not wear a bra and that…

When I read the news just a short while ago about a car explosion in a HDB carpark, my heart sank and I was almost convinced it was a terrorist attack. Although the Straits Times says the case is probably just a case of motor vehicle fire, there are many questionable details that make me wonder if it is really so simple as that. First and foremost, what caused the explosion? The Straits Times report says that the explosion was caused by "some contents inside the car". It really makes me…

Dear Editors, According to mainstream chinese media, word on the street has it that the lady who was arrested for hurling profanities at the old man at Toa Payoh Lorong 8 hawker centre is working in the Private Education sector while the identity of the man remains a tight lipped secret. "据《联合晚报》探悉,两人是夫妻,昨晚被警方逮捕。女子在私人教育界工作,男子身份则暂时不明" Although the couple have been arrested by the police, they have not been brought to the Court to be charged for any offence. For the offence of causing publi…

I was dismayed to read about the closing of schools, especially primary schools (8 junior colleges among 28 schools to be merged; April 21). While it is an understandable policy response to declining birth rates in Singapore, every year hundreds, if not thousands, of children of foreign parents are denied a place in the government school system. It is correct that a Singaporean's right to education takes precedence over a foreigner's. But the closure of schools shows that the system is…

A China man was jailed for 16 months for slashing his fellow countryman with a rusty penknife. Wang Fuguo, aged 40, used a rusty penknife to slash his colleague Wang Dayu on the left of his neck and right arm. The incident took place at Cellini Design Center at Changi North Crescent on October 21 last year. The supervisor wanted the two men to report for work an hour earlier the next day because there was going to be a shipment of goods arriving and these would need to be unpacked. The…

Recently our group, Happy People Helping People Foundation did a survey to find out more about the problems our senior citizens living in rented HDB flats are facing and we found out that many of them are having difficulty paying their bills. There are many among them who are using the PAYU (Pay-As-You-Use) System in their homes because they are not able to fulfill their monthly commitment of paying bills. There are also many that owes Singapore Powers a great sum for not paying their…

Dear A.S.S. Editor I can never understand why there are still cases of people defaulting over their NS call ups. NS is not as tough and soul destroying as they used to be. Nowadays, new recruits are treated so well, I wonder if they eve know the meaning of tough training anymore. The High Court's act of raising the jail terms of three NS defaulters yesterday was a totally good move. These defaulters should be told in no uncertain terms via their sentences that NS is not to be taken…

I refer to this article: SPH makes foray into healthcare as population ages http://www.straitstimes.com/business/companies-markets/sph-makes-foray-i... Singapore Press Holdings (SPH) just bought over nursing home operator Orange Valley Healthcare for $164 million. The company sees the increasing demand for eldercare services as an attractive long-term business strategy and a source of stable revenues. This comes in the wake of a disappointing 1.2% dip in net profit. SPH is now a…

Why were the couple the only ones who got arrested? To be fair for everybody, the older man must be arrested as well. Because the attitude of the older man was kind of like, unyielding, or aggressive, or not accepting the woman's protestations. He was also using his hands to point at the table and such. It seemed aggressive. It's hard to say who started this argument, but I would say it's the older man. He had entitlement issues. He was kind of harassing/aggressing or provoking the…

Dear A.S.S. Editor When will people ever learn that feeding wild animals just for their own personal gain, or thinking that the animals need to be fed, are actually doing these animals more harm than good? A nature photographer was fined yesterday for flouting the law by feeding the birds at Botanic Gardens, just to get good pictures of these birds. This was the second case in seven months. The first one had a photographer feeding endangered grey-headed fish eagles with live fish injected…
