Mothers - arguably the bane of our lives growing up because they're constantly telling you what to do. Yet, every year on Mother's Day, everyone cooks up plans anyway to express their gratitude to the matriach of the family for all the sacrifices they've made. So, we thought that this would be a perfect opportunity to focus the spotlight on Singapore's favourite television mums. With the premiere of the third season of Mediacorp's Lion Mums on Channel 5, we get to see a new dimension to these incredibly complex women - who are all rocking some serious power women hairdos. However, this character development doesn't make them any less relatable. If anything, they remind us of the type of mothers that we're very familiar with. CHAE LIAN: THE MISUNDERSTOOD MOTHER The road to hell is paved with good intentions, yet, most mothers believe the benefits outweigh the methods. You know who we're talking about. These are the mothers who will do anything to ensure the … [Read more...] about The 3 types of mums you’ll find in Singapore
When do new episodes of game of thrones air
By Mesfin Fekadu The Associated Press Thu., May 2, 2019 Mother’s Day is in a couple weeks, but Drake gave his mom an early gift with a heartfelt speech at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards, where the rap star also broke Taylor Swift’s record for most wins. Drake turned up the love for his mom when he picked up top artist, besting Cardi B, Ariana Grande, Post Malone and Travis Scott. He won 12 awards Wednesday in Las Vegas, making his career total 27 (Swift has 23 wins). He looked up to the ceiling as he held the trophy, then said: “I just want to thank my mom for her relentless effort in my life. “I want to thank my mom for all the times you drove me to piano. All the times you drove me to basketball and hockey — that clearly didn’t work out. All the times you drove me to Degrassi. No matter how long it took me to figure out what I wanted to do, you were always there to give me a ride, and now we’re on one hell of ride,” … [Read more...] about Drake breaks Taylor Swift’s record at Billboard Music Awards
By Chris Barton Los Angeles Times Mon., April 29, 2019 So who had “Game of Thrones will just wrap up its whole Night King/humanity-unifying climate change allegory in 82 minutes” in their office pool? After all the talking that until now made up the final season of HBO’s fantasy blockbuster, the Battle of Winterfell arrived with a vengeance Sunday night. But for all the bad omens, fond farewells and seeming inevitability of mass casualties (imagined by at least one viewer, anyway), the great war ended on the side of humanity with Arya killing the Night King (and everyone else in his army) with her Valyrian steel dagger. Needless to say, Arya doesn’t pay for a meal anywhere in Westeros the rest of her life — at least until she meets whatever’s ahead in sunny King’s Landing. But before getting too far into the lethal blow that came at the precise, telegenic moment when all seemed lost for the humans of the North, it’s worth … [Read more...] about Game of Thrones’ Battle of Winterfell stuck its landing. What happens next?
There were rumours circulating on the Internet about fan favourite Arya Stark dying in the second episode of the eighth and final season of Game Of Thrones (GOT). Fans know not to discount such talk because the hit fantasy series is notorious for killing off main characters mid-show, several in spectacular fashion. So when Maisie Williams, who plays Arya, went on The Tonight Show earlier this month and let slip that her character dies to host Jimmy Fallon, you could hear a pin drop in the studio audience as they totally bought her convincing horror at spilling a major spoiler. But it turned out to be an April Fool's joke, so everyone was relieved, that is, if they believed her. Well, the second episode aired last week and not only does Arya not die, she asks hunky blacksmith Gendry (Joe Dempsie) to have sex with her the night before the big Battle of Winterfell begins, because she wants to know what that feels like in case there is no tomorrow. But earlier, at our interview at the … [Read more...] about Maisie Williams feels she already won, having made it this far in GOT
Well, most of us. Even those who’ll lament the narrative’s end, but will be none the worse for wear and tear through eight seasons (make that nine years). Yeah, like Otso Diretso, plus 1. I can’t watch Episode 3’s original airing this morning, as I'll be involved in another annual ritual involving fiction and poetry. But I’ve been happily assured that Florentina Homes in Dumaguete has a cable TV local provider whose channels include HBO. And that I can even watch the 10 p.m. replay on HD at Gabby’s Bistro, with its wider screen as a Cignal recipient. So, like most of you who are GOT 8 (and Otso Diretso) fans, I should see who get killed off in the Great Battle of Winterfell. Should be quite a bloodbath, with blogging pretenders to three-eyed raven augury largely predicting that the Night King will take Game 1, and decimate Winterfell the way Thanos did the Avengers. Until his White Walkers claim a nine-dash line to include the Winterfell crypt, … [Read more...] about Who will survive ‘GOT’?
