‘Chinese workers in MM look like military men’ MANILA, Philippines — Lawmakers yesterday raised concern about the presence of what they described as military-looking Chinese workers in a Philippine offshore gaming operation (POGO) facility in Las Piñas City. Rep. Eric Pineda of 1Pacman party-list, who chairs the House committee on labor, said residents have seen some Chinese workers whose haircuts and body build resemble that of soldiers. “They look like military men who sport clean haircuts and are physically fit like soldiers,” Pineda told reporters. Bayan Muna party-list Reps.

These HDB flats are humble homes... NOT! HDB flats are sort of like Kinder Surprise eggs - we all know how they look like on the outside, but on the inside? It's completely different for each house. Some HDB apartments bring to mind the inside of heartland homes: they are simple with a cosy, lived-in look; whereas others look more like a chic penthouse or a boutique hotel suite in an upscale part of town. The 6 HDB flats featured here firmly belong in the latter category, and they come with the trappings of upscale residences, from subtle accents to sleek fixtures. So, take a look - and be inspired to transform your own HDB apartment into a home that looks like a million bucks. 1.

What do you do when there’s nothing to do? The great thing about having nothing to do is, for the first time in a long while, I am watching Netflix without guilt, and with no pressure of work in the morning. What do you do when there’s nothing to do? That’s the question that Douglas Wood asks in his children’s book, Nothing To Do, that I bought for my daughters when they were children. From what I remember, it listed activities where children could make creative use of their time when “there is nothing to do.” There is never nothing to do, as the book showed the kids how to spend lazy days when there’s no school or homework or chores.

I remembered that book because I am in that state at this time, when … [Read more...] about What do you do when there’s nothing to do?
Multicultural Singapore, home to hundreds of thousands of expats and transients from every corner of the globe, has a way of allowing tourists to blend in almost seamlessly. You could be gawking, jaw on the floor, amid a crowd at the latest Moshe Safdie stunner, for instance, and not feel a twinge of self-consciousness because, well, everyone else is doing it. At the Jewel Changi Airport — a seven-storey, glass-domed enclosure that, almost inconceivably, combines a futuristic mall and airport complex with Jurassic World-type atmosphere of a misty rainforest, complete with a water feature called the Rain Vortex as a centerpiece — everyone is a tourist beholding the city-state’s newest architectural prize. In other words, you can try not to look like a tourist but often there will be little point to it. Instead, to derive more value from your visit, direct your energies at recognizing how residents operate. Other places to check out in Singapore: Mark Justiniani … [Read more...] about How not to look like a turista in Singapore
