What was on Meghan’s veil?

Kensington Palace has this afternoon released sketches of Meghan Markle’s wedding veil, designed by  Clare Waight Keller.

“The Duchess and Ms Waight Keller worked closely together on the design, epitomising a timeless minimal elegance referencing the codes of the iconic House of Givenchy,” Kensington Palace said in a statement. On the veil, all 53 countries of the Commonwealth were represented by their respective flora, and yes, so was Singapore’s!

The Palace said: “Ms. Markle…wanted to highlight the success of a leading British talent who has now served as the creative head of three globally influential fashion houses – Pringle of Scotland, Chloé, and now Givenchy,” they said.

“Ms. Markle and Ms. Waight Keller worked closely together on the design. The dress epitomises a timeless minimal elegance referencing the codes of the iconic House of Givenchy and showcasing the expert craftsmanship of its world-renowned Parisian couture atelier founded in 1952.”

“True to the heritage of the house, the pure lines of the dress are achieved using six meticulously placed seams.”

“The focus of the dress is the graphic open bateau neckline that gracefully frames the shoulders and emphasises the slender sculpted waist. The lines of the dress extend towards the back where the train flows in soft round folds cushioned by an underskirt in triple silk organza. The slim three-quarter sleeves add a note of refined modernity.”

Where to Bring Mum: Paradise Dynasty @ Lot 1

It’s May Day eve! My family and I decided to head out for dinner to reward ourselves, the labourers. We thought a nearby location would be great, and at the same time I was craving for Xiao Long Bao!

We raced up the escalators when we got there, and got to the third level in a heartbeat.

We were ushered to comfy booth seats, where I gleefully scribbled down my orders on the order chit. Xiao Long Bao (original), 10 for $12.80. Yums.

My family members also decided on Kung Pao Chicken, which is Stir-Fried Diced Chicken with Cashew Nuts and Dried Chilli – a must every time we come here.

For greens, we decided on Stir-Fried French Bean with Minced Pork and Preserved Olive Vegetables.

We also couldn’t resist the Deep-Fried Pork Ribs Dipped in Mayonnaise. It turned out to be like McSpicy’s patty, but really shiok and tender.

One of us who prefers noodles to rice ordered the Sze Chuan La Mian. I didn’t get to eat it since the person slurped it up entirely. But I figured it must be delicious. Oh I’ll have it the next time!

The verdict from my family – really delicious! The style of cooking is refined, and unlike other places (hence the price). The food isn’t oily, but has a restaurant standard. If only we could cook like this!

Will be back again for sure!

Why should I pay the Airport Development Levy?

When Changi Terminal 5 was unveiled at the National Day Rally in 2013, we were all stoked. More so when the beautiful visuals of Project Jewel were released.

Uh oh. We forgot that this comes at a price. Who would fund these expansions? Surely not…not us?!

The Ministry of Transport (MOT) and the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) announced on 28 February 2018 a new Airport Development Levy to fund the Changi Airport expansion project, or Changi East. In this post, we bring you the 5 frequently asked questions on this levy.

1.     How much is the levy?

If you are flying out of Changi Airport, you will have to pay up to S$10.80 more due to the new levy, as well as changes in passenger fees.

2.     There’s no guarantee I’ll use the facilities. Why must I pay for it?

The fact is that such expansions entail a huge upfront investment. Our government currently employs a three-way model – made up of the government, Changi Airport Group (CAG), as well airport users, like you and I. The good thing about this model is that it prevents a large spike in charges to future airport users. Apparently, this isn’t a new concept. Airports in Hong Kong, Dubai and Qatar adopt similar models.

3.     Fine. But who paid for the previous terminals?

Surprise, surprise! We have been paying for airport upgrades and expansions. The expansion of Terminal 1 and the construction of Terminal 4 for instance, were fully funded by fees collected, such as the Passenger Service and Security Fee that were paid by airport users.

4.     Why can’t the Government pay for this project, since it has so much money?

In general, airport users should bear their share for the use of airport facilities. In fact, airport users are paying the smallest share. The Government will pay the majority of the costs, while CAG will contribute the next largest share. Airport users’ contributions is the smallest share of the joint contribution model.

5. Exactly, so costs should be borne by the Government and CAG!

Actually, if you think about it, it isn’t a good idea. If airport users are not to be charged, then the government would have to pay more. Don’t forget that the government’s money is our money – taxpayers’ money!

Now you know – the levy isn’t too bad after all. With everyone’s contributions, we’ll be able to enjoy a brand new Changi!

Voilà! Good news from #Cannes, France, where the prestigious @mapicworld Awards 2016 was held last night – Jewel Changi Airport, jointly developed by @changiairport Group and #CapitaLand, has been crowned Best Futura Shopping Centre!👏 Designed by world renowned architect #MosheSafdie, Jewel combines beautiful gardens with a vibrant marketplace housed within a distinctive glass-and-steel dome. 🎉Strategically located in Singapore’s Changi Airport, the world’s sixth busiest #airport for international traffic, it will provide an excellent platform for leading global retail and lifestyle brands to showcase their best offerings to the world. We can’t wait to welcome you to #Jewel when it opens in early 2019. Meanwhile, here’s a sneak peek into the future! 😄

How can I get my tax returns automatically filled?

Ever wondered how can we get our tax returns automatically filled? For the majority of us, we enjoy a simplified tax filing process and we have our employers and IRAS to thank.

1.8 million of us in Singapore are fortunate to be working in companies that have participated in IRAS’ Auto-Inclusion Scheme (AIS).

This means that most of our companies provide IRAS with details on our salaries, and these details are hence automatically pre-filled in our tax returns. That’s why so many of us don’t even need to file our taxes (i.e. on the no-filing scheme)!

Believe it or not – many Singaporeans still take pains to key in their salary details in their tax forms. If you are one of them, urge your employer to get on the AIS scheme right away! (Get your company to apply for it here)

If you can’t get them to budget, fret not. As part of the government’s initiative to take things online, the AIS scheme has been made compulsory for some companies.

For instance, from Year of Assessment 2015, it is compulsory for employers with 10 or more employees to come onboard the scheme. From Year of Assessment 2018, participation in AIS will be compulsory for employers with 9 or more employees. We see what you did there!

If your company still isn’t taking steps, push for the Auto-Inclusion scheme right away! Rally to get your company on board to enjoy seamless tax filing and save time and effort from keying in your tax returns every year!

Is there fake news in Singapore?

Did you know that you might be a spreader of fake news?

What are fake news?
Fake news are false stories that are fabricated with the general intent to spread misinformation in societies. It could be developed to incite hatred, or influence politics to jeopardise a country’s social stability. It can also spread unnecessary worry or panic, especially when it comes to topics on health and personal safety.

Here are 2 fake news that caused lots of commotion.

  1. Punggol Waterway Terraces roof collapse

You may have seen photos circulating online, or even shared them yourself! The police and the SCDF were activated and the area cordoned. Unfortunately, it turned out to be a false alarm. What a waste of resources!

2. FairPrice false rice rumour

Reports online claimed that NTUC’s jasmine fragrant rice is made of plastic. Concerned customers even showed up at NTUC, demanding refunds for their purchases. These rumours turned out to be fake as well.

Why is fake news so common these days? Well, it is really easy to remain anonymous online. And people like to share without fact-checking first. If you share first, you look like you’re super in-the-know, right? There is also a lack of laws to deal with fake news in most countries. In fact, artificial intelligence can create fake news that really appear convincing. We show you an example:

Yikes… Are you convinced?

How can we spot fake news?
The first thing to do is to check out the information’s source. Is it a ‘clickbait’ headline like “5 things you HAVE to know about xxxxx”? Is it a strange website like viralnova.com? If it’s an email, is the formatting bad? Is it a recognized author or agency? Is there biased writing?

Another way is to check out snopes.com. Snopes.com debunks all the fake news for you. Unfortunately, there isn’t Singapore news in there.

So what you’ve got to do is to ensure that it’s a “.gov.sg” or “.edu.sg” website. Or better yet, get your information off Straits Times’ website or any local media agency’s website. If you do come across something strange in your social media network, do verify if the incident did happen with these verified websites.

Use the S.U.R.E. steps to analyse articles
The National Library Board (NLB) has come up with a S.U.R.E way for you to debunk myths:

SOURCE
Look for its origin. Is it trustworthy? Make sure that the source of information is credible and reliable.

UNDERSTAND
Know what you’re reading. Search for clarity. Look for facts rather than opinions.

RESEARCH
Dig deeper. Go beyond the initial source. Investigate thoroughly before making a conclusion. Check and compare with multiple reliable sources.

EVALUATE
Find the balance. Exercise fair judgment. Look from different angles – are there at least two sides to the story?

What can we do to fight the spread?
Do not simply ignore fake news posts!
Private message your friends and relatives to inform them if they are sharing fake news. Share the relevant and authentic links with them, and block spreaders and pages of fake news. Report fake news to relevant parties or authorities if it threatens individuals or society.

Where to Bring Grandma: Wok Master @ Westgate

We took grandma out for dinner, and we thought the nearby Jurong East area would be perfect for her. Jurong East has been transformed in recent years from a functional transit area to a lively, bustling town with Westgate, JEM and JCube bursting with shoppers at the seams.

All of us met up at the train station and we took her on a short walk to the basement of Westgate, where we were surprised to find a new restaurant (where Texas Chicken used to be) that appeared to be a indoor tze char place!

If you love tze char, you WILL love this place. Air-conditioned, comfortable, and really really delicious.

We ordered the following dishes – sweet and sour ribs, hei chou (prawn rolls), sambal kang kong (of course, right?) and the mussel thing, which I forgot what it’s called.

Getting into the restaurant is by no means easy, though. It was a 20-minute wait and we had to queue. But it was all worth it! Crab was also on offer but we didn’t get it.

The wait staff were really helpful and cheerful as well. In fact they also interacted with my grandma. She was delighted!

It was the four of us, and we ordered four dishes. It was perfect! We will be back. 100% recommended!
