Breaking news - Riot at Singapore's Little India

| |
We had just received the news about the outbreak of riot at the Little India road.

The below footage was captured by a resident near the little india vicinity.

The exact reason why the riot broke forth was possibly due to a bus driver hit 1 of the jay walkers at Little India road. Witcast understand Jaywalking at the Little India road is not something new. In fact, it's a norm. We have not seen any traffic policeman or any Cisco officers etc coming to summon the Jaywalkers.

Hence when someone finally got knocked down, the foreign workers showed the police who is the boss. Kind of sad news for us. In the above footage, we can see the workers even flipped over the Police Cars.
In this instance, where were the Riot Police? They had been well trained all these while, but they were no where in sight. Moreover, they will have no idea who on earth destroyed their vehicles.

In the below video, there were even fire that broke forth.

We hope Singapore can be a safe environment for citizens and foreigners. By demonstrating such big scaled riot, it is indeed a sad news for everyone.

We understand the Riot Police was called in later and had showed them whose the real boss.

God bless Singapore.

Heads up on the EPL (Part 2) - After 15 games

| |
Hi Everyone

In our previous post on the start of this season's EPL actions, we had introduced the transfers done by all the EPL teams. Today, i will be giving you an update on the top 10 teams after 15 games and whether their KPI had been met or not. This article will also feature some of my personal views on the teams.

Lets begin with

1) Arsenal

Prior to the game against Everton tonight, Arsenal sits on top of the EPL table with 34 points with 14 games played. After their 1st game of the season which resulted in a defeat against Aston Villa, they had gone to the next 9 games undefeated, collecting 25 out of the possible 27 points. Amazing feat. After their defeat against Man U, they had gone on to collect 3 out of 3 victories.

So, they had an exodus in their squad at the start of season, this had indeed made them even tighter as an unit together. Even when their bid for Liverpool's Ace man didn't materialised. They have Giroud, Ozil, Ramsey etc etc etc... so many talents.

Come January, they should add 1 or 2 strong players to their team and they will probably secure a top 4 finish at the very least. As for their title bid, its been a very long while since they added anything to their trophies cabinet. Will this finally be their year? 1 thing for sure, they had exceeded everyone's expectation for them. Well done Gunners.

2) Liverpool

Liverpool had been a sleeping giant all these years. This season we had seen some of the best football from them. Last season after 15 games they have only collected 19 points and stayed at 11th of the table. This term, they are staying at the 2nd of the table. Definitely impressed many of the Anfield faithfuls.

So will they poise as a major threat to the other big teams as title contender? The Christmas fixtures may well determine their fate.

However it will all depends on this man, Luis Suarez. Amazing 14 goals in 10 games, amazing strike rate that many EPL teams add their total goals together cant be compared to. Came back from his biting suspension, Suarez had once terrorised many of the EPL defenders and Keepers. Together with his striking partner, Daniel Sturridge; they had combined 23 league goals!

Lets take a look at their signings, Mignolet (aka Mi No Let) had been outstanding. The goals that were conceded wasnt really his fault. He had even saved a penalty on his debut. He made many fans forgotten that Reina was even on loan. Kolo Toure on the other hand had his ups and downs, but overall he needs to speak lesser and perform better. Sakho is a great addition, but his tackles can be quite dangerous. Aspas and Alberto had not been the best signings for LFC, neither could loan signings Moses nor Cissoko claim a regular starting place.

Overall, their target is always the top 4 finish, which this season should just be their season. If not, Mr Suarez will definitely leave. Any better than that(top 4) will be a good bonus to Liverpool.

3) Chelsea

This looks like a Chelsea season when we learnt that Mourinho had returned as Chelsea's manager.
They had their ups and downs this season. On par with Liverpool on goal difference, addition to some on pitch controversies involving Chelsea players.

Generally, this seemed to be a slow start to the London Blues. The problem with Chelsea seemed to be inconsistency that they dearly hope to put a stop to.

Their strikers : Torres, Ba, Schurrie and Eto'o can't seem to hit the back of the net often enough. Meaning their midfield is stepping up to score on behalf. Hazard, Oscars and Lamps are the Trio who tops the scoring charts for Chelsea. If the strikers can't score on a regular basis, this will be a problem for Chelsea.

Despite Mourinho mentioned no one will leave and no 1 will come in come January, this Chelsea side don't seemed to have many options to claim games.

The leak came when they lost to Stoke. If they wishes to take the title from their rivals, they need to strengthen their strikers' strike rate or get someone in who can fit the bill. However, since they are still in the top 4 so far, their make or break will come in after their hectic Christmas and new year schedule.

4) Manchester City

At the start of the season, Man C's Chairman expects the team to win every single trophies available to them. I would agree that they have the potential to do it, but with 1 twist; if only all of their games were played at home.

They are the only team in the EPL that had won all of their home matches this season. But away from home? 2 Wins, 2 Draws and 4 Losses.

They had scored amazing 29 goals at home, conceding only 2. Their top scorer Aguero should claim some credit but Man C looks like a good team, with lots of goals flowing in from everyone.

One person that was dropped was Joe Hart. The current England number 1 finally paid the price for his constant errors in goal. Will he pick himself up and claim back his spot? I bet he is praying his understudy fails so he can be recalled. World cup is coming, if he is not playing for club, i will be sure he wont play for country. The signings had been great, namely Fernandino, Jesus Navas, Negredo and Jovetic. But i think the manager will want to bring in some more players in January to ensure a good fight to the title.

If Man C can take their home form to their away games, they will be a good team to claim the title. Too early to say if they can claim the spot their own. With many teams behind them knocking on their door.

5) Everton

Everton had always been a silent dark horse throughout. When Moyes went out, Martinez took over. I had always thought he is a good manager, so when he is given a bigger team like Everton to manage, he will ensure he does his best to lead the team to glory. He was rumored to replace King Kenny at Liverpool before LFC revealed Brenden Rodgers as their choice.

Everton had transformed into a tough nut to crack, beating teams such as Man Utd (whom also bought Fellani from Everton for 27.5m), Chelsea and Newcastle. Also to note, they had drew with Liverpool and Spurs. They are also the team that had lost the least. Only once to Man C.

If there is a team that did far better than expectations, Everton gets my vote. However, they will need to retain the service of Baines. Already sold Fellani to Man Utd, their midfield is like having a hole to be filled. If Baines were to leave, their position might really decline.

6) Tottenham Hotspur

There is no bale to bail them out this season. In-came Paulino and Soldado, with the latter quite a failure. He had only scored from the spot? It cost Spurs 30m euros. Wow, if that isn't termed a flop, i don't know what else is.

Do AVB knows who are his best team? All i can say is, Spurs are 6th because of good luck. If they goes on this way, their luck will eventually runs out and they will pay the price for it.

I don't think they will finish in the top 4 this season. Though early but they just don't have the quality. Lots of attacking but they need a better striker to convert the possessions and chances into goals.

I think you guys missed me
Come January, AVB might invest further to bring more glory to the team with the surplus from Bale sales. Until then, let's continue to watch them.

7) Newcastle United

Newcastle had gone to places and secured big results, most famously against Man Utd last night. They had exceeded much expectations for them and they seemed to be another difficult team to beat. Also to note is they had beaten Spurs and Chelsea too in their journey.

Every season they had produced some good strikers who eventually be sold off. 1st was Andy Carroll, then there were Ba and Cisse. Now Remy. Remy joined from the relegated QPR and Newcastle is happy to get him here.

The Newcastle midfield are a closely knitted group of players, covering for each other and delivering the ball for their star striker. Another contributor is Tim Krul, who had kept his team safe at the back. Keeping 5 clean sheets which is 1/3 of their season so far.

They will need to continue looking for ways to improve or else the teams below them will eventually catch them.

8) Southampton

Another surprise package up in the top half of the table. Southampton had exceeded everyone's expectations to be in top 4 at some point. So what is their secret? Look at their team, Lallana, Rickie Lambert, Jay Rodriguez and Clyne the four Englishmen were the reason.

All 4 had been in great form this season, not afraid of any of their opponent. They had stayed undefeated against Man U, Man C, Liverpool. And also picked up maximum points against the smaller clubs. Therefore they are where they are currently.

Expect them to slip up to the mid-table once fatigue sets in. But whatever the case, this had already been a successful season for them.

9) Manchester United

Sorry Man Utd fans, you need to scroll down to find your team here. We have all been through ups and downs, but i think not many Utd fans had ever seen their team suffering like this. The worst start to their season since the longest time. Very quickly you can see some of their fans turning against their club, pointing fingers at the Manager, players or even the referee.

There used to be a time when winning at Old Trafford for away teams were so difficult, it was a fortress. This season, their away form is better than their home.

Definitely the worst team we had ever seen from Man Utd. Moyes, the chosen one had tried not to rock the boat. Not getting too many new signings and didn't allow any 1st team player to leave during the summer.

This is the same team that had won the league last season. Now clearly struggling. Moyes appeared to be very different from Sir Alex.If the team loses 1 home game, Sir Alex will vent his frustration on the players, appeared to have boot thrown at Beckham at one time. So they wont want to lose the 2nd game in a row. Moyes probably didn't did what Sir Alex did. Probably sat down with the players and tell them to do a better job next round. Surely Man Utd players do not like his style of coaching, hence they lost again.

No late drama in the Newcastle or Everton's game. It seemed something is missing for Man Utd.

I expect a major acquisition from Moyes in the Jan transfer window. And if he still don't perform, bye bye to him. A center back seemed to be on top of his list. An attacking midfielder is also required. The problem will probably be the Board not willing to let him take charge till then. The stakes are too high for him to fail. No other manager will envy his current position.

10) Aston Villa

Started the season with a big bang. Winning over current leaders Arsenal, went on a few good games along the way and ends up at number 10.

It had been quite a joy watching Villa this season. They had been fighting for every ball, not giving the opponent a breather. Their pressing tactic had worked against some of the clubs. They had Christian Benteke to thank for at the beginning of the season, now it's more like a team play.

Similar to United, their away form is better than their home. They had only lost once away from home but had lost on 4 occasions at their home soil. If they can continue their fighting spirit, they will do well. But whether they can climb further up the table, it will be interesting to see who they managed to get come January.

That's all for now. In the next part of their series, i will be giving an update for teams in the 11th to 20th places. Stay tuned.

Tim Ho Wan, want or don't want?

| |
Have you seen the long queue outside Tim Ho Wan, the Hong Kong cafe right at the Plaza Singapura's new extension wing?

I bet many of you shoppers must have seen it and maybe had even tried a couple of their dishes.

So is Tim Ho Wan worth the wait? We have seen plenty of media coverage of how long the diners have to wait. The longest being 1.5 hours of their time. Surely there's a better use of time huh?

Had decided to pop by and decide for ourselves if the wait is truly worth it. Tim Ho Wan actually meant increasing good fortune in Cantonese, so we hope it's for our good fortune and not just the owner's good luck :)

We arrived at Tim Ho Wan : 7:20 pm, waited around 15 mins before the waitress signaled to us that we can now enter the cafe.

Took a quick look at the "Menu". No picture, no chef recommendation, no diner's favorite. However, there was this "heavenly kings" section where they listed their so called signature dishes. So we ordered 3 out of the 4 (Char siew bun, chee cheong fun with liver and Malay sponge cake), hoping they will be nice. Besides that, we had also ordered some siew mai, congee, beancurd skin related dish and some spring rolls.

The service delivery was amazing. Once we had submitted our orders, our 1st dish was served almost immediately. 1st up, Century egg + lean meat + Salted egg Congee. By the look of it, it looks normal, nothing very different from those we always had at the hawker centers. But once you had tasted it, you might want to take a 2nd mouth and eventually finish up the whole bowl all by yourself.

The 2nd dish, Char Siew Bao. The crust and the looks of it changed my perception of Char Siew Bao. To be honest, i didn't like Char Siew Bao since young, but this bun had just made me wanna try it.

I took a bite at it and was amazed by it. It was awesome. It got me all excited, since this is mentioned as the top 4 dishes of the shop, i cant wait for the other 2!

The 3rd dish, Spring roll stuffed with egg white. Looks like a normal spring roll to me. Didn't expect much as it was not 1 of the top 4 dishes. Ate the 1st piece, didnt like it. Thought it was a little blend. Next please.

The 4th dish, Siew Mai!! I was kind of anticipating it since this is a Hong Kong Cafe, my expectation of it simply rises by 2 notches. The looks of it doesn't look very tempting. Well, took a 1st bite and thought it was very blend. So took the 2nd piece and it's the same taste. Decided to mix it with some soya sauce and it is actually pretty ok after that. But how can a siew mai be so blend? To me, this dish simply failed, big time.

Next, Beancurd skin stuffed with pork and shrimps. This dish looks rather nice. So i quickly took a piece. It's nice. But i wouldn't say it's super nice. Just much better than the previous 2 i mentioned.

Ok, 6th dish, finally the other big 4 appears. Chee Cheong Fun with pig liver. Hmmm, should i be happy? The Chee Cheong fun looks tasty but i am unsure about the liver. Took a piece of it and the verdict was out immediately. I think the prawn one would be a better choice. The Chee Cheong Fun is nice, very smooth but the ingredient within disappointed me big time.

Last dish to end our meal, Malay style sponge cake. My wife enjoyed it but felt she was a little full so didn't finish it. I took a small piece and didn't liked it. End of the reign of the big 4 dishes.

I went on to observe the service attitude of the waitresses and found that they will greet their customers only if they are dressed in formal attire or they are Caucasians. Not sure this considers as a form of culture there but i am sure service should be based on the customer's outward appearance. As i received the greeting from the staff, i was rather pleased with their service :)

So the verdict for me. 3 dishes impressed me but if you have to try 1 or maybe 2, just go for the Congee and the Char Siew Bao. You will not regret your choice. For my foreign readers, you might want to join in the queue when you are here in Singapore too (if time permits), it is located within Plaza Singapura (opposite Dhoby Ghaut MRT station)

Have a great day ahead!!

Local man spat at not 1 but 2 women - Woodlands Bus interchange

| |
Came across this video of a local Singaporean guy spitting at not 1 but 2 women.

Some background prior to this video recording.

According to the video owner, the lady in blue was queuing up for Bus number 950 at Woodlands Bus Interchange. Suddenly, there is this man who suddenly cut her queue, feeling annoyed, she asked him to queue up at the back instead.

However, this man claimed that he was in the queue earlier. But he went off to buy a drink at the shop nearby and came back. Although he claims that he was in the queue, there were no alibi. Hence when the bus came, everyone in the queue went up the bus, this guy rudely spat at the lady in blue lady multiple times before he went up the bus.

As the bus was full, everyone murmured to him to get down. He then pushed the lady in blue down the bus and spat at her more than 10 times. This lady then proceeded to call for help from the SMRT crew. This rude man was still hogging on to the bus by refusing to alight, he then blamed the driver for not starting the bus. I guess he was waiting for the guy to either alight or for the police to arrive.

Meanwhile SMRT control room informed that there will be a second bus and now 2-3 SMRT staff + driver at scene but didn't do much. This rude man was still insistent that it was the drivers fault. The passengers on the 1st bus were screaming and shouting at this rude guy for being inconsiderate. There was this old man on the bus who almost got punched for telling him off. This rude man continued to fight back verbally with the entire bus load of passengers and also pushing his way through.

The second bus came and the driver opens the back door of the 1st bus for passengers to alights. Then this rude guy rushed to the back of the bus and tried to stop the passengers from alighting. However his efforts was in vain as there were lots of people pushing him aside.

This green lady in the video was unlucky one, who was stopped by him. He claimed she scolded him on the bus earlier and that is none of her business. He then grabs her by the hand, refusing to let her board the second bus, then proceeded to spat at her multiple times. When he pushed her, she shouted molest. That was when this guy denied. He went on to spat at her for more than 10 times again.

After doing so, he tried to escape from the scene and board the second bus, but the passengers on board the 2nd bus stopped him.

The rest of the story can be sent in the video above.

In my view, yes we could all be pissed off at various times, especially if there were calling of names, or mockery that is offending. Words might even come out of our mouth that will cause us to have regrets for the aftermath.

However, to spit at someone? Come on, is this a soccer game? Or do this guy thinks the girl's face is some basin in some toilet? Even in any soccer game, if you spat at your opponent, you might just face disciplinary actions from your club and the football association.

Totally unacceptable behavior. Show this to anyone around the world, they will not accept his behavior. I doubt the local police will charge him for any criminal offence though. At most maybe the lady can sue him for civil offences. But at the end of the day, this guy should have controlled himself. If he can't get on the 1st bus, queue up for the 2nd bus. If you can't get on, keep waiting. We have seen someone posted that he had waited for 13 buses before he can board the 14th bus right? If you had left your queue, there is no such rule that you can re-join the queue unless if your loved ones are there.

In summary, we should not condone such rude behavior in our society. If you are reading this and you happened to know this man, please let him know one day if someone were to spit at him, he won't be happy too.

Our friend, she made reservations to sit inside in the air-condition. We went there last month. When Baby and I reached there first, we noticed that they had some queue no. machine just like the one at GRUB, Bishan Park. But there was no need for it, so we went in and we were letting them know that we're here. Apparently someone bypass the queue machine came in and sat down at our table. How can you not see the machine, it's by the door before you step into the restaurant. Lol!

Advice: If you want to eat at Symmetry, it is best to have a reservation as the waiting time to get a table would be a long time.

Service? I would say it was terrible.

I had ordered a Sanpellegrino - Aranciata Rossa (meaning: blood orange) for my drink and the bad thing is they ran out of it and didn't even bothered letting me know that they didn't have it. Until after we kept asking them when is the drink coming, then only then they said it's out of stock. Oh wow right! Bad customer service, so I ordered something close to my Aranciata Rossa.

When my drink arrived at our table, it came in like some canister like mug with a metal straw!

The Potato Fries were awesome they're actually Truffle Fries with Truffle Mayo. Oh I would just go back for it again! I had order an Eggs Benedict, our friend XW had the Salmon Croissant and I think Baby had ordered a Big Breakfast!

Couldn't try the desserts there as we were so full from Brunch.

I'll definitely go back to have the food! I hope service will not be as bad as last time.

Beware ladies! Don't get rubbed the wrong way.

Pervert alert!

Do anyone of you know this pervert? He is suspected to have molested a girl in the MRT. Let's do justice for her. I think this happened in Singapore's MRT.

Please take abit of your time witness how he molested the girl. Total disgrace.

What would you have done if you are the lady? I am ashamed that nobody stopped him from doing that. What a loser face. Maybe the local police should do something.

The sin of the cowardly

| |
I was browsing through Facebook and came across a sick picture of 2 guys with a trapped kitten.

My 1st reaction was WHAT THE ****!!!!!!!!!

My apology for my choice of words. But that was how I felt exactly.

How would someone of a sane mind treat this as a joke? It's not even funny. The poor kitten would be so afraid by the time it was placed within the container. Can you imagine being placed under captive in a box that hardly gives you any room to breathe, let alone move. Moreover, you can't escape on your own. That should be how the poor kitten felt at that point of time.

We didn't know what happened to the poor kitten.

What we have is this picture and 2 abusers posing happily as if they had killed a tiger. The authorities would not be able to track them down just by a photo, or rather I think they don't have much power to do so?

Just when I thought that's all, i came across an even more heart-breaking article of these group of kittens being killed by mystery sicko, perverts.

In the below photos, you can see from the mama cat that she was shocked and depressed by what she just witnessed. She looks like she's trying to wake them up. Those kittens were probably just playing nearby when they met their cold blooded murderer. Can you picture this? You were out shopping for maybe 20 mins, leaving your kids at home for awhile. Only to return with cold bodies lying all over.

Mama Cat: What happened to you, baby?

Mama Cat: Help, somebody please help

Mama Cat: Who did this to you? Wake up please ...

The kittens' heart-broken-ed Owner

Family portrait of Mama Cat and 2 of her kittens
My questions to the authorities

1)If these murderers goes scott-free and continue doing their regular torture/murder of poor helpless kittens, will they resort to killing human beings once they are sick of killing small animals?

2)If (1) is right, shouldn't the authorities get hold on them before they get out of hand?

3)If they are caught by any chance, will they be sentence to jail or will they be accessed by the institute of mental health?

My questions to the murderers/torturers

1)If you think doing these acts makes you a hero, why don't you try killing a tiger or catch a pirana?

2)If you would like to see your loved ones being tortured or killed just like the way you did to the poor animals?

3)If the above answers were no, i hope you stop this sick acts.

There is a great saying that what goes around, eventually comes around. We have our fair share of so called karma. We have all sinned, but if killing and torturing these animals makes you happier, i strongly advise you to seek professional help.

God bless the living and RIP to the poor kittens who passed on.

Saluting the true superheros in our society

| |
Have you thrown your tantrum when you can't hear what aging parents were saying? How about being pissed with being blocked by a standing music fan in a concert?

What if one day you wake up from your sleep, your world turned into a state of pitch-darkness? What if you had involved in an accident and lost your limbs? (choi, touch wood). Would you blame the whole world about your calamity? Or will you do something about it and be an inspiration to others?

I was watching a documentary show about the disabled in Singapore and it had once again touched me deeply. 

Somethings we had been taking for granted day in day out may not be easily accessed by a minority of the population in this part of the world.

Yes, today's post will be about our superheros in our society - The physically disabled group.

What touches me most are probably the determination behind these group of superheros.

Take a local inspiration, Dr Yeo Sze Ling, as an example. She contracted glaucoma when she was only 4. Her nerves were damaged and as a result, she had lost most of her sight.

Not giving up in life, she studied even harder and was given a scholarship from National University of Singapore(NUS). She went on to graduate from NUS with excellent results. She proceeded to take her Master and eventually got her PHD that was funded by A*STAR graduate scholarship.

So where is she now? She is currently working as a researcher at A*STAR. 

Wow, what an extreme success that is! She had done what most of us could not achieved. As such, she was named in the National Day Rally by our Prime Minister. She is indeed a superhero in her own ways. She had conquered her disability and also did the impossible. 

All those would not have been a success if not for her hard-work and determination. So, for the rest of the students reading this blog, there is no shortcut to success, hence start working hard.

The next hero that I will be introducing is no stranger to you. He is Nick Vujicic. You may not have listened to his inspiring talks, but I am sure you have heard this name or maybe have browsed through his book, "life without limits"

I had the privilege of attending one of his talks and i was greatly moved by him. Unlike Dr Yeo, Nick was born without any limbs. The only limb he has is his little leg which has 2 toes. He introduced his left leg as the "drumstick". Mind you, his "drumstick" is fast as lightning. There was this part where he invited someone up the stage and challenged him to answer some questions. The catch is, the person who buzzes in 1st will have the 1st say. To our surprise, he had aced every single questions by buzzing in 1st. He went on to give encouragement to the guy, saying it's not because he is slow, just that he had the opportunity to practice for a longer time.   

He went on to talk about his life experience which left the audience with buckets of tears. He mentioned that there was a period of time that his peers were making fun of him, he wasn't angry with them, as he understood they needed more help than him. That's true, i wonder if his peers made it big and as famous as him now? 

Not too long ago, Nick was happily married and his wife gave birth to a healthy son. 

When he 1st posted his photo of his son, many crude comments rushed into his facebook page. However the majority of the netizen uphold justice and the critics left shortly. 

I have learnt much from him. It's not about what you don't have that you need to worry about, but not using what you already have. God is fair, he gave everyone equal talents and gifts. What you doesn't practice will eventually be taken away from you.
