SELFIES, an offence in Singapore?

It’s interesting how many Singaporeans create a big hoo-haa out of NOTHING, but over a subject like self-shots.

MP Baey Yam Keng has been on the news recently for excessive self-shots of himself on social media platforms such as Instagram, Facebook, Tumblr Blog, etc… So What?

img_2489_v2

Haven’t many Singaporeans, ourselves are doing that EXCESSIVELY!?

Perhaps we, Singaporeans enjoy making a big fuss out of… NOTHING?

or maybe, the media in Singapore has nothing else to write other than reporting on a Member of Parliament who loves to put his self-shots on the web.

Nonetheless, let’s take a look at some self-shots fanatics who enjoys taking photos of themselves. (Make a guess who they are?)

OOps!

Here’s me wishing you great weekend!

The Weekend Khakis – Breathing Chinatown

164276_10151468251207805_1095105162_n

Working on a dying culture, a dying trade, a dying Heritage.

Singapore has definitely moved and changed so much over the last twenty years. Many of the Singaporean culture, heritage and values have developed because of commercialisation. In fact, looking back, life was much better though we weren’t as advanced as we are now.

Last week, we decided to find back our culture, a Singaporean Chinese culture. So we decided to make a trip down to Chinatown in search of our roots and also, to see how Chinatown has developed since the last time we were there.

Do you Know?

That in the early day when Sir Stamford Raffles and Lieutenant Jackson, the colony engineer, drafted the Town plan in Singapore, the Chinese immigrants were located at the SouthWest of the Singapore River?

Interestingly, the dialect segregation also had an unintended effect on commerce in Chinatown – business owners, either for the convenience of communication or the comfort of the familiar, would often hire workers of their own dialect. This eventually led to trades being dominated by particular dialect groups:

The Hokkien, among the earliest to arrive in Singapore, took on trade and commerce and came to dominate as business owners.
The Teochew specialised in agriculture, with many making their fortunes from gambier and pepper.The Cantonese became miners and artisans, taking on occupations such as bricklayers, carpenters, woodcutters, tailors, jewellers and goldsmiths.

Like the Cantonese, the Hakkas worked in craft-related occupations but also dominated the niche trade of pawn broking.

The Hainanese were among the latest to arrive and had fewer options – they entered the service industries, and specialised in occupations associated with food and beverage, such as coffee stall holders, assistants, bakers, barmen and waiters. – No wonder i am in the F&B trade!

After the war, Chinatown gradually recovered and even flourished, entering into its ‘golden age’ in the 50s. She began to take on a character and popularity of her own. She became the ‘in-place’ for everything; people came here to get their marketing done, find the latest cut of cheongsam, get their fortunes told, celebrate festivals and meet their friends over dimsum. The streets thronged with all sorts – storytellers, streetside wayang, fortune tellers, hawkers, peddlers and travelling medicinal salesmen. The sights and sounds of Chinatown’s streets were the tales of early tourists and marked on postcards sent around the world.

Soon, modernity came knocking. By the time the 70-80s came around, the rest of Singapore was changing. Public apartments were built in mass, allowing Singaporeans to break away from the cramped squalor and live in comfort. People moved out of shophouses and into new, high-rise flats built by the government – and Chinatown was no exception. Even the street stalls were relocated into the purpose-built Chinatown Complex.

The charm of Chinatown seems to be lost, opening up to commercialisation, the vibe that we used to get when we were young seems to be diminishing. More and more developments and changes to meet the ever-growing influx of people coming into Singapore, perhaps one day we’ll lose everything. Probably it’ll just be another plot of land, a piece of land that we use to build homes, high-rise buildings and offices.

As for now, enjoy while you can!

The Weekend Khakis – Picnic

Harrow!

You might be thinking why i’m sharing two post today. Well, initially i wanted to have my entire weekend post posted on one page, but after going through the whole process of Blood Donation (which i think is definitely worth one full page), i decided to have a separate post for The Weekend Khakis!

Yes, so now you know why i’m having two posts today:)

Foodaholic!

Is there such a word? Perhaps not!

But i think it kinda describes us, The Weekend Khakis!

Why?

Well, as a workaholic, we all know it describes someone, or a person who compulsively works hard and serving long hours.

For us, FOODAHOLICs

We work hard with long hours, on FOOD!

Food, something we all love, a product that never goes out of fashion. To a certain extend, a lifestyle and a bridge to many culture and differences.

“… you can find other newer ‘imports’ from America, Myanmar, Thailand, Japan, Korea, etc. This is a clear reflection of the multiculturalism we have here today in Singapore” – Mr Ang Hak Seng, People’s Assosciation Chief Executive Director

Thus, over the weekend, we decided to do picnic! The objective is to have each of us cook a dish.

Here’s the final product!

Garlic Mash – Ms. Small Girl

Assorted sides (Cheesy dogs, Crab Meat & Seaweed Chix) – Mr. Lazy

Soy Wings w Curry leaves & Chilli Padi – Ms. Google Foodie

Curry Maggie Pancakes – Mr. Drummer

Dark Chocolate Brownie – Ms. Baking Guru

What an experience! Definitely one of the cheapest, most fun-filling experience we ever had in our weekend hangouts! We even bought a kite to fly to celebrate this happy occasion – ok, i admit that it was me who wanted to buy it! lol!

To more great time and friendship, have a enjoyable and fruitful week ahead!
