A lifelong obsession with penguins has culminated in the ultimate dream trip for bank employee Adelene Cheng, 32. She beat more than 1,200 entries to win a trip to Antarctica, with her write-up about her passion for the flightless charmers. "I have always been in love with penguins and my biggest dream - and No. 1 item on my bucket list - is to be up close and personal with all 18 species of penguins in the world," she wrote in her contest entry. "That is a tall order in sunny Singapore as none of these lovely birds is native to our country, but that has not dampened my spirit and endeavour to be with them, one or more species at a time." The Straits Times, with its travel partners Dynasty Travel and Turkish Airlines, chose Ms Cheng as the winner of a dream holiday for two to the frozen continent, under its ST+ news with benefits programme to reward loyal subscribers.

Born with cerebral palsy, 18-year-old Gan Sun Ling needs a motorised wheelchair to move around, but it does not stop her from being independent and active. Yesterday, she received the Lee Kuan Yew Exemplary Student Award at this year's Special Awards Presentation Ceremony held at Republic Polytechnic. The annual ceremony recognises students' academic and non-academic achievements, including their contributions to the community. Miss Gan, the head prefect in her school, Cerebral Palsy Alliance Singapore (CPAS), was all smiles after she received the award from guest of honour, Ms Indranee Rajah, the Second Minister for Education. She told The New Paper: "I can't believe it. My parents are happy too. It makes me want to keep trying hard to do more in school." A typical day for her starts at 6am, when she takes the public bus to go to school. It can be a feat.

I know people don't do that on … [Read more...] about Two students overcome tough odds and become award winners
She heard screaming in her flat and rushed to the kitchen to see what the commotion was about. To her horror, Miss Tam saw her mother in a panic, as their terrified Indonesian helper desperately clung to the clothes rack outside their kitchen window, four storeys up. The incident happened on Sunday at Block 38A, Bendemeer Road, at about 7.30pm. Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) officers eventually managed to get the domestic helper from a ledge outside the kitchen window safely back into the flat. A safety life airpack had by then been set up at the foot of the block as a precautionary measure, an SCDF spokesman said. The woman was taken to Tan Tock Seng Hospital with minor injuries. Her employer's daughter, who wanted to be known only as Ms Tam, said the helper had accidentally fallen out the kitchen window of their four-room flat while collecting laundry. It was her first day at work, she added. The 24-year-old student told The New Paper yesterday: "She was hanging on to the … [Read more...] about Maid rescued from 4th-storey window ledge at Bendemeer
LONDON • Prime Minister Theresa May will resign on June 7, paving the way for a leadership contest to decide Britain's next leader. Below are members of the Conservative Party who are widely-expected to run.
