It's rare to find something genuinely creative on the Internet that has managed to, for the most part, remain hidden. A Facebook post by Kife Wee highlighted just one such instance. In Wee's post, he uploaded a screenshot of a Carousell listing showing a man offering an unbiased second opinion for the very reasonable price of S$5. Here is the screenshot of said listing. Here's the listing on Carousell. The listing was made over a year ago, so the most pressing question would naturally be, are the second opinions still available? It turns out the user is very much still going, even if he isn't incredibly active on the platform. Speaking to Mothership , Rukyn.Xu explained what prompted him to make the post. "I’ve always loved reading and learning and have tons of otherwise useless information, so many times I may have a point of view which is different from what is generally held. Just did this listing on a whim if anyone wanted a sounding board I’m ... » Learn More about For S$5, S’pore man on Carousell will give unbiased ‘2nd opinion’. Best listing ever.
I would consider myself a casual gamer, ever since I graduated from university and began working sometime in 2019. Back in university, I used to play video games more regularly, with more time in between and after classes. My childhood was somewhat filled with games - I started playing console games such as Pokemon at a pretty young age, whenever my relatives would lend me their GameBoys. When I was 10, I started playing PC games too. There was this really popular MMO at the time that everyone was playing, and I was really obsessed with it. Had slimes and mushrooms in it. What it was, I can’t seem to recall. I received my first handheld console when I was 12 -- a Nintendo DS -- after PSLE was over. For a long time, handheld games became my new love, until my NDS stopped working a couple of years ago. These days, I’ve been mostly playing console games on my Nintendo Switch when I’m at home. While it’s technically a handheld console as well, I don’t really bring it ... » Learn More about I was paid to play MapleStoryM for a week, best week at work ever
AT A GLANCE MANILA, Philippines – From a reluctant presidential candidate to someone at the helm of the country for 5 years – simply put, that’s what President Benigno Aquino III has been. With only a year left in Malacanang, has he fulfilled his promises from his 2010 campaign? Aquino’s "Social Contract with the Filipino People" was the platform of his campaign. The document includes a 16-point agenda aimed at creating social and structural change. Rappler reviewed this document to determine how he has fared as president. We classified these 16 points into 7 groups: Corruption, Economy, Poverty, Justice, Overseas Filipino Workers, Peace and Order, and Environment.

In many ways, Luca is a very personal story for director Enrico Casarosa. It is inspired by his childhood, growing up in Genoa, Italy, where he spent his summers on beaches and diving into the crystal clear waters of the sea. One of the lead characters, Alberto, is even based on his real-life childhood best friend Alberto Surace, who makes a voice cameo in the Italian version of the movie. So, it comes as no surprise that Luca has an almost child-like quality to it, almost like a hark back to Walt Disney movies of old like The Little Mermaid , and most pertinently, movies by Studio Ghibli’s maestro, Hayao Miyazaki, which Casarosa admits were a huge influence on him and the movie. (Read our review of Luca here: Charm in the sun with Pixar's latest one ) 'Luca' revolves around two sea monsters chasing their dream of exploring the surface world. “I love stories where there is a kid's point of view. What Miyazaki does with his movies is wonderful – he just puts you ... » Learn More about Sunny Italy, fishy stories: ‘Luca’ director Enrico Casarosa’s ode to his childhood

Formed in 2015 in South Korea, the band has racked up more than 2 billion streams worldwide, and is best known for hits such as HOME;RUN and Left & Right . Seventeen is riding on the smash success of two back-to-back albums last year - ; (Semicolon) and Heng:garae each sold over a million copies.

“The pandemic has pushed consumers worldwide to become more health conscious and focus on the nutritional benefits of foods. This global trend, which we are also seeing in Thailand, creates tremendous new opportunities for food innovations, food safety and organic foods.” Sonklin Ploymee BOI’s Deputy Secretary-General The COVID-19 pandemic has taken a heavy toll on most economies worldwide. Thailand is no exception. However, Thai food exports have become a bright spot, bucking the trend of the country’s overall sliding exports, with the demand for processed and canned foods having held up in these uncertain times. This trend reflects the surge in global demand toward home cooking and ready-to-eat foods in the wake of restrictive measures to contain the pandemic. The resilient export of food and farm products also highlights Thailand’s commitment to R&D and advancements in the application of technology to meet the growing demand of consumers for nutritious and quality food ... » Learn More about FOOD OF THAILAND FOR A FUTURE WORLD
