Well, came across this clip, "You First Believed (Original) - Thank you Mr Lee #TYMrLee" by Dominic Sings. It was published in YouTube on 14/02/14 has since gathered 104,945 views. The tune is quite catchy indeed and the use of the classic, memorable clips of Mr. LKY was just appropriate. So what do you think about the singing & the intent of the singer publishing it?
This is what's mentioned in the Description of the clip:
I wrote this song specifically because I would like to publicly appreciate Mr Lee Kuan Yew for all that he has done for the country. He is literally the reason why Singapore is where it is today & I believe in giving honour where honour is due.
He has been getting a lot of unnecessary hate recently on the internet, and it really frustrates me how much some people (youths especially) are just purely ungrateful & ignorant. A few of my friends who share the same spirit as I do just ran with this project to really appreciate Mr Lee for who he is. If you share the same spirit as we do, share this video and let him know that there are a lot of us who do appreciate him for all that he has done.
Mr Lee, if you're reading this, I would like you to know that you are appreciated and celebrated, and there are a lot of youths here that really treasures you. We recognise your work and we want to thank you for all that you've done.
Thank you for believing in Singapore, in dreaming big and large for Singapore. Because you first had a dream, we all can dream to achieve greater things.
Once again, thank you for all that you've done. #TYMrLee #WeLoveLionCity #LoveSg
Love & light,

When you see the words "F&N", the refreshingly cool drinks come to your mind. But, exploring YouTube, I've just discovered that "F&N" may refer to a beautiful wedding too? Heh. Check out the screenshots below:

Yes! With 12,445,184 views for a clip that was just uploaded on early of this month (2 Feb, to be precise)...
Check it out, "Marvel's Captain America: The Winter Soldier - Trailer 2 (OFFICIAL)".
Well, well...I have no idea that Resorts World Sentosa also has a blog, namely RWScoop. Here is its interesting article on "Year of the Horse 2014: Fortune forecasts".
I have no comment about how the fortune forecast is--which by the way, analyzing it is always way easier AFTER the year end, right? With the power of hindsight.
What I like, though, is how the 12 animals of the Chinese zodiac are pictured:

Stephanie Koh, or you may know her better as Steph Micayle or "she who is not proud to be Singaporean" has made it to the news again. This time she's being accused of asaulting her aunt on the first day of the CNY. What is her story of violence, I wonder...
Stephanie Koh, the 21-year-old who made the news last month for her controversial remarks on how she is not proud to be a Singaporean, has found herself making headlines again, this time over a family dispute.From Asiaone, "'Not proud to be Singaporean' Stephanie Koh accused of assaulting aunt during CNY".
Ms Koh, finalist of a Korean reality show, was accused of hitting her aunt on the first day of the Chinese New Year last Friday. Her aunt Nicole Chong, 33, who is the sister of Ms Koh's mother, made a police report against Ms Koh for attacking her.
A teacher who shares a Housing Board home with her mother, Ms Chong told The Straits Times she had locked herself in her room last Friday, when Ms Koh and her family came for a visit.
Ms Chong, who said she also quarreled with her niece in December and wanted to avoid her during Chinese New Year, claims Ms Koh stood outside her room and made remarks to provoke her, which prompted her to open the door.
That's when she claims Ms Koh charged in, pulled her hair, pushed her to the floor and hit her head. "I tried to stop her, so I bit her on her arm", says Ms Chong.
"We got into a quarrel in December, and she said a lot of things to hurt me then. I just wanted to avoid her this Chinese New Year," said Ms Chong. But Ms Koh stood outside Ms Chong's room and made remarks to provoke her, which led Ms Chong to open the door.
But Ms Koh told The Straits Times she did not attack her aunt. She alleges that her aunt shouted at her to keep quiet and even poured hot tea on her. Ms Koh also said she tried to speak to Ms Chong afterwards.
"That was when she lunged at me, and scratched my chest and bit me. It's been four days, and I still have the bruises now," she said. "I tried to pull her away by pulling her hair. Then my dad broke up the fight. I did not attack my aunt at all."
