From the haze to the Little India riots, the past year has been unique, with various incidents occurring. As we prepare for the dawn of the new year, let’s recollect some of the highlights of this year.
STUDENTS ONLY: FB ‘CONFESSIONS’ CRAZE
Need a break from studying? Why not confess? Or at least read some of these confessions…
NEWTON MRT FIRE INCIDENT
The MRT got too excited over Chinese New Year.
HARLEM SHAKE GOES WILD
Harlem Shake fever catches on in Singapore. Who says we’re ‘emotionless’?
MERCEDES-BENZ ZOOMS, BEATS RED LIGHT, HITS 3 CARS & CRASHES
Traffic lights and a double decker bus couldn’t keep this car from crashing into 3 other vehicles before coming to a halt at a divider.
HELLO KITTY FEVER
We are masters of queueing. Neither hail nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night, will keep us away from potentially lucrative, collectible toys.
HAZE & HAIL
Not only were we gifted with the haze from Indonesia, but we also got to experience what a hailstorm tastes like, when it “drop, drop, drop… inside our tongues”.
THE FINAL SHOWDOWN:
GORDON RAMSAY VS SINGAPORE HAWKERS
Gordon Ramsay loses to Singapore hawkers at the Hawker Challenge, failing to beat our home team at laksa and chicken rice. Majulah!
THE OPENING OF JEM
After the opening of JEM, many incidents occurred – Fair Price caught fire, a car in the carpark caught fire, and finally the ceiling collapsed… because it was flooded.
With a name like Batman bin Suparman, you’d expect a hero, but in reality, he was jailed for multiple counts of theft. Some say that ‘he was only in jail for training, like in the movie Batman Begins’.
2013 was a year for disappointed concert-goers across a wide fan group.
Greetings. I’m a clueless rabble rouser. Blah, blah, blah. Thanks for listening.
LITTLE INDIA RIOTS
The shocking event that ended our year with a bang…
