"Join Us Surely" by PwC Singapore

"Join Us Surely" by PwC Singapore. They're that desperate, huh?


Still it's quite impressive to note that 27,903 views this 1-day cheesy video has managed to grab. (For that, it deserves a link to its official PwC Singapore website. Heh.)

Of course, it's kind of sad to see how they committed a blunder by stating: "Join Us Surely" as PwC Singapore version of "Call Me Baby".


As a matter of fact, the song it's inspired from is titled, "Call Me Maybe" by Carly Rae Jepsen. Ouch, PwC Singapore...none of you truly listens to the song, huh?

Project "We Are Singapore!"- A new National Day Music Video

Project "We Are Singapore!"- A new National Day Music Video, produced by SteadiProductions.


Bringing together a group of 7 strangers, a band was formed to create an original cover of Tanya Chua's 2001 NDP song, "Where I Belong".

This is a unique music video which is a One-Shot Steadicam sequence and shot in Slow-Motion! It was quite an epic experience bringing out a whole band, fully equipped with a movable drum set, keyboard and amplifiers onto the streets of Orchard Road!

Incredibly creative as "the video is made slow motion on purpose. In the real shoot, the band had to play twice the speed and video was later slowed down to 50% in post-production to produce the effect"!

Drunk (Singaporean) Indian Man at Yishun MRT Singapore.

Drunk Indian Man at Yishun MRT Singapore. What the hell, SMRT is now the next Speaker's Corner?!


But I think the clip was taken from Sembawang, instead of Yishun MRT? As in the clip 3:45, the station was said to be 'Admiralty'. (In fact as early as 0:58, it's announced 'Next Station: Admiralty'.)

On 2nd thought, the train might have just travelled from the other direction: from Woodlands towards Admiralty.

Mrs Stella Gallas: "PLEASE CAN YOU HELP ME WORK FOR GOD.?"

The email has this "PLEASE CAN YOU HELP ME WORK FOR GOD.?" as its Subject line. It's sent from one MRS. STELLA GALLAS (____@telemontrgo.net) and rightly landed in my Spam folder. Still I cannot resist to see how the scammer abused religion to achieve his/her goal.

May that person burn in Hell.

Dearest one in the Lord.

It is my pleasure to write to you after considering your profile, My name is STELLA GALLAS a nationality of Kuwait. I am married to MR.MARTINS GALLAS who worked with Kuwait company in LONDON for nine years before he died in the year 2006. We were married for eleven years without a child, he died after a brief illness that lasted for only four days. Before his death we were both born again Christians.

When my late husband was alive we deposited the sum of $8.3Million(Eight Million three hundred thousand U.S. Dollars) with a BANK here in LONDON Presently, this money is still with the CITIBANK LONDON here. Recently, my Doctor told me that I would not last for the next three months due to cancer problem.

Though what disturbs me most is my stroke. Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to church or better still a Christian individual that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct herein. I want a church that will use this fund to;churches,orphanages, Research centers and widows propagating to the word of God and to ensure that the house of God is maintained.

The Bible made us to understand that Blessed is the hand that giveth. I took this bold decision because I don't have any child that will inherit this money and my husband’s relatives are not Christians and I don't want my family hard earned money to be misused by unbelievers. I don't want a situation where this money will be used in an ungodly manner. Hence the reason for taking this bold decision.

I am not afraid of death hence I know where I am going to. I know that I am going to be in the bosom of the Lord. Exodus 14 VS 14 says that the lord will fight my case and I shall hold my peace. With God all things are possible. As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the BANK. I will also issue you a letter of authority that will empower you as the new beneficiary of this fund. I want you and the church to always pray for me because the lord is my Shepherd. My happiness is that I lived a life of a worthy Christian.

Whoever that wants to serve the Lord must serve him in spirit and truth. Please always be prayerful all through your life. Any delay in your reply will give me room in sourcing for a church or Christian individual for this same purpose. Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated here in.

Hoping to hearing from you soon.

Remain blessed in the name of the Lord.

Yours-in-Christ,
MRS. STELLA GALLAS

Malaysian Dogs Deseve Better; So Do Singaporean Dogs...or any country dogs!

Referring to STOMP, "Men offer to take care of pet dog, then chuck it down manhole", and partially quoted:

The owner is a student from Jordan who went back home on June 24. The owner's housemate's friend, a Somali student, offered to care for the pet dog, Kanilla, for a month. Kanilla was a cross between a Pitt Bull and a Dalmation.

However, on July 19, the owner received a shocking message which claimed that Kanilla had run away. Even more shocking was the video shown to the owner by his housemate when he returned to Malaysia on July 26.

The video showed the Somali student and another accomplice throwing his pet dog into a manhole in Cyberjaya. They had apparently used his housemate's laptop to transfer some files, including the video and had forgotten to erase them afterwards.

From the same article, I learn about the existence of "Malaysian Dogs Deserve Better" Facebook. (Check out also the blog, "Malaysian Dogs Deserve Better".)


Now I wonder whether there's such a site like "Singaporean Dogs Deserve Better", but the most relevant site I found is "Action for Singapore Dogs". Support them however you can.

Mentos National Night

Mentos National Night. From its YouTube clip description:

Mentos is out to celebrate Singapore's National Day in the freshest way possible. By celebrating in a way that is also going to help tackle the country's unbelievably low birthrate.

This august 9th, Mentos calls on Singaporeans to show their love for their country by celebrating not just National Day, but National Night - a window of
time in which to give the country the population spurt it so desperately needs.

*Only financially secure adults in stable, committed, long-term relationships should participate.

Heh. Cute. I still prefer this spoof ad of Mentos the Freshmaker, though.

of Howard Shaw, "SINAGPORE [sic]", and 24 testimonials...

Wow. No kidding. When it's said 'nervous', the paper really means it. To the extent of spelling 'SINGAPORE' wrongly as 'SINAGPORE'. Hur hur. So am I guilty for being fastidious, eh?


Okay, to tell the truth, I too am kind of wondering about those 24 written testimonials presented to the Judge. Why specifically 24?! Is there any limit to such testimonials? If he's such a good character--really--he shouldn't have any trouble to get much more than 24 testimonials, should he? Heck, he should have impressed the Judge. Give him 240 testimonials! Publish them as a book--perhaps, with a fancy title: "Howard Shaw" and its accompanying caption: "For He's a Jolly Good Fellow". Hur hur.

SINAGPORE - Nervous.

It was the only word that Howard Shaw Chai Li could say when approached by The New Paper minutes before he was sentenced on Monday.

Though Shaw, 41, tried to put up a brave front as cameras clicked away as he entered the Subordinate Courts building, his shaky voice betrayed his nervousness.

Earlier in the morning, his lawyer, Senior Counsel Harpreet Singh Nehal, had delivered a 90-minute closing statement about Shaw's "honest and reasonable" mistake in engaging the service of an underage prostitute.

Mr Singh, of Wong Partnership LLP, also presented no less than 24 written testimonials to Senior District Judge See Kee Oon to take into consideration for the sentencing.

But all these could not save Shaw from a jail sentence.

Paid S$500

The grandson of the founder of cinema giant Shaw Organisation was sentenced to 12weeks' jail for paying S$500 for sex with the underage girl at Hotel 81 Bencoolen on Oct 30, 2010.

Deputy Public Prosecutor Sellakumaran had earlier submitted that a sentence of three months' imprisonment would be appropriate.

Paying for sex with anyone under 18 is punishable with jail of up to seven years, a fine, or both.

Shaw's lawyer said he will be appealing against the sentence, and Shaw's police bail of S$10,000 was extended to court bail of the same amount.

An appeal must be submitted within 10 days.

Ten of the 24 written testimonials to Shaw's good character were work-related and came from such high-fliers as a company chairman, managing director, chairman-CEO and top academics.

The other 14 who wrote personal testimonials ran the gamut from other business leaders to a national service (NS) diving buddy to childhood friends to even a former maid.

These testimonies, which portrayed Shaw as an unassuming man who respected people and was a wonderful and loving father, were unsolicited, Mr Singh told the court.

The citation by one of Shaw's former maids described him as a down-to-earth, kind, generous, humble and understanding employer.

She remembered him as a quiet person, but always smiling.

"He never asks for food, he cooks instead! Lots of time (sic) he helped me clean the house when he had a party!" Ms Julie Pondevilla wrote in an e-mail sent to Shaw's mother, MrsLinda Shaw.

"He is a simple man and he doesn't care if he wears the same, old, white T-shirt."

Ms Pondevilla also wrote about how Shaw used to bring home reptiles that would freak her out. And it was Shaw who passed his love of animals and nature to her.

A childhood friend, Ms Karen Seah, who has known him since they were nine, described Shaw as a rare individual who is helpful, patient and tolerant.

"He would always take a person's word and give people the benefit of the doubt," Ms Seah, who went to boarding school and university with Shaw, wrote in her letter.

A retired senior warrant officer, Mr Bob Chia Ngee Huat, recalled how Shaw, while serving NS, had volunteered for the "tough role" of a naval diver.

He also mentioned how Shaw had lent movie posters from his father's company to decorate the camp clubhouse.

Picked up rubbish

Mr James Han, Shaw's former buddy in the Naval Diving Unit, remembered how he was inspired by Shaw at one outing at East Coast Park when Shaw and his family voluntarily picked up rubbish along the coastline.

Others who submitted testimonials included Ms Kay Kuok Oon Kwong, executive chairman of Shangri-la Hotel, Associate Professor Simon Tay of National University of Singapore's law faculty and Mr Jopie Ong, group managing director of Metro Holdings Limited.

In his closing remarks, Mr Singh reiterated how Shaw had made an "honest and reasonable" mistake.

And the offence had taken place five years after Shaw's divorce and over a year before he remarried.

"In short, he was single at that time," MrSingh told the court.

He said that the common law has long recognised that a person who commits an act under an honest and reasonable mistaken belief is treated, in the eyes of the law, as morally blameless because he lacks criminal intent.

"The question to be asked in this case is: What possible public policy objective is served in sending to jail someone who has no criminal intent, who makes an honest and reasonable mistake and genuinely believes he is engaging in perfectly lawful conduct? Why won't a fine do?" he added.

Mr Singh said it was the underage prostitute who had engaged in predatory conduct, entrapping men who were entirely unaware of her deception.

But Judge See said the fact that Shaw did not ask the girl about her age or make any effort to verify her age, showed it was not an "honest and reasonable mistake".

"It may have been a genuine mistake, but not an honest and reasonable one. He made no enquiries about her age and went ahead to have sex with her. He could have been guarded against an offence, but he took the risk," the judge added.

"Perception is subjective and prone to errors and lies. Our senses are not always reliable and prone to mistakes."

Shaw must have realised the risk that he was putting himself into, should she not be 18, added Judge See.
From Asiaone, "24 testimonials couldn't save Howard Shaw".
