Everyone's favourite local sitcom, Under One Roof, has lost one of its iconic character to cancer. Malaysian actor Zaibo, known to many as Yusuf the mee rebus seller, passed away on Wednesday afternoon after a battle with stage four oesophageal cancer.

Zaibo, whose real name is Zainal Arrifin Abd Hamid, 62, announced in September this year of his battle with cancer, which had spread to his stomach, lungs, liver and left rib cage. He was just in the news the day before he passed away, as Johor's Princess Aminah Sultan Ibrahim, visited him at his house on Monday. 

The veteran actor will be dearly remembered by his fans in Singapore and Malaysia. 

Popular K-pop boy band BTS is performing in Singapore in January 2019. Tickets went on sale on 27 October 2018 and was sold out in under 4 hours. Some fans were even seen queuing outside of the box-office booths at Kallang Wave Mall as early as 5 days before the release of the tickets. Tickets are priced between $88 to $348.

However, many of the tickets appear to have been sold to people who were more interested in making a quick buck instead of true fans. Many ARMY (fans of BTS) went to social media to post their conversations with scalpers who were selling the tickets at ridiculously high prices. Check out some of the conversations below: 

Prices on StubHub, a platform that sells tickets to events from all over the world went up to as high as $12,000.

As of 29 Oct 2018, these tickets were no longer available. However, the highest prices are still ridiculously high at about $4000. 

Would you buy concert tickets at these ridiculous prices? 

If you are a big fan of Hong Kong drama serials, then this name would be familiar to you. Veteran TVB actor Benz Hui have been revealed as making Yishun as his place of resident. 

Yishun, notorious for the many crimes, accidents and all kinds of bad things to happen there, has already welcomed Hui and his family into their town. However, Hui of course would not be staying in the heartlands with Singapore's peasants. Instead, he is staying in the private housing estate that just happens to be located in Yishun. 

Hui have been on the record as saying that he has homes in HK and Singapore, and that his family frequently flies between the two cities. Hui also met his wife in SG in the 90s, and their daughter was born in Singapore.

Benz Hui making Yishun great again!

Notorious Singaporean blogger has taken to Facebook after receiving threats and criticisms for her Rosmah Halloween make-up. 

She posted about how unbelievable it was that former Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak and his wife Rosmah Mansor still have supporters. She reminded them that they are facing corruption charges of using the nation's money for their own benefits. 

Best of all, Xiaxue was unaffected by people who shamed her for undergoing plastic surgery and being a Singaporean Chinese. Like the latter is something to be ashamed of? But most importantly, she said that this was all done in good fun and it should not even be construed as a Singapore VS Malaysia thing. "After 1MDB Singaporeans were all rooting for our Malaysian friends during the elections and we cheered together with them when the results came out. Their high spirits of hope and renewed faith was infectious and Singapore felt it too. Disliking the Razaks isn’t equal to disliking Malaysia at all."

"I can’t wait to piss the village idiots off more, it’s gonna be so fun! For my Malaysian friends and followers who are so excited about this video, this is for you guys, and the cherry on top of the cake is watching the idiotic Najib supporters get hopping mad."

You go girl.

A netizen suggested that SMRT collaborate with Yamaha and other music agencies to encourage Singaporeans to showcase their talent in MRT stations. He said that they should "work together to have a piano installed at Orchard MRT station" and invite people to perform.

He was of the view that performers should not accept donations. In the case where people insist on giving money, they should go to charities.

It is not sure what he is trying to achieve but it is quite impossible SMRT will take on the idea. Not when it does not help to drive revenue.

How much more naive do Singaporeans want to be? They can continue hoping but the harsh reality is, in Singapore, no money no talk.

A new thematic mall in JB, slated to opne on 17 October 2018, may represent yet another threat to Singapore's malls, most of which have already lost significant number of human traffic. The mall, named Capital 21, is reputedly Johor's largest shopping mall to date, an is located at Jalan Tampoi, just 20 mins away from the Woodlands checkpoint.

The mall houses an indoor theme park, as well as having thematic floors inspired by any cities in the world. There will be five continents represented on each of the 5 floors of the retail side. The continents are Americas, Asia, Austria, Europe and the Middle East / Africa. Each level are also planned to have six iconic cities from the continents they are representing.

There will also be a theme park, which is to be the largest indoor theme park in South East Asia, and hotels. Being 20 mins away from Singapore, this is yet another reason Singaporeans may feel that shopping across the causeway is so much better than going to the same old shopping malls in SG. Now, if only the authorities can do something about jams at the Causeway.
