Netizens CSI-ed BMW Driver in Caltex Saga: 6 Topics S’poreans Are Talking About Today (16 Apr)

Good morning, everyone!

Although yes, it might not be a good one because, well, it’s Monday.

Don’t worry, because we, here, at Goody Feed are here to alleviate your Monday blues.

And the first one happens to be about the BMW driver who allegedly “scammed” an elderly attendant at Caltex.

Karma’s a bitch, bitch.

BMW Driver in Caltex Saga Tracked Down By S’pore Netizens

Singapore is a small country, and we always say don’t burn bridges because you might meet that person again.

Unfortunately for this BMW driver who roused the internet, that’s exactly what he did.

And the folks at HWZ couldn’t take his alleged scamming ways anymore.

So they started their CSI.

They spotted the car illegally parked at Teck Whye with a ticket issued to him.

They also found out that the car purchases season parking in Tampines.

Chinese newspaper, Shin Min, ran an article on this saga and reported that someone went back to the station and paid the outstanding fuel charges.

But it wasn’t known who that individual was.

The forumers also mentioned that they’ve likely found the BMW driver, complete with LinkedIn account (which was allegedly removed) and his face.

Straits Times was told that the driver had only borrowed the vehicle and therefore was merely replacing the used fuel of $10.

The lesson to learn here? Don’t piss off the netizens.

They’re going to CSI you so jialat-jialat you won’t have anywhere to run.

And the second lesson: it might not be a good idea to go for the car, since the owner, who might be innocent, could just have lent the car to that guy.

So don’t come to any conclusion yet.

Located on the ground floor of Far East Square at Chinatown, this amazing old lady will head to the market to buy fresh ingredients with her second son at around 6 am.

Then, she’ll head off for her stall to prepare for the day.

She had been doing this for 60 years, and has outlasted 5 of her disciples who had retired from the hawker business.

She used to run the stall’s operation all on her own, from cooking, taking orders and everything else.

But nowadays, she has younger staff around to help her, although she still handles the cooking and serving of her wonton noodles to customers.

You can watch the full video below:

So, for those of you who complained every day about having to work eight hours a day: what’s your excuse now?

S’porean Influencer Took Products & Money, Then Allegedly Went ‘MIA’

In Singapore, most people don’t have a very good impression of influencers.

Every chance you get, you’ll probably want to bash them.

Like this one.

Trixie Khong, founder of By Invite Only, a local jewellery brand, took to Facebook to write about her experience with influencer Elaine Heng’s behaviour.

She claimed that Heng accepted payment and pieces of jewellery from her shop in exchange for social media posts, but did not fulfill her end of the bargain.

After paying the quoted price, Heng allegedly went M.I.A for three to four weeks.

The first Instagram post, which was scheduled to go up on 6 Mar wasn’t posted.

After Khong left a comment on Heng’s Instagram, Heng apologised to Khong via Whatsapp.

Eventually, Khong gave up and asked for the money and products back, but Heng didn’t respond to her.

She decided to expose the influencer in a Facebook post, which immediately got Heng responding.

Heng even transferred the money back to Khong, with an additional $100 for a product that she broke.

Khong refused to take down her post as she wants to warn others about working together with her.

Heng subsequently did an Instagram story and talked about her side of the story and mentioned that the products were very poor in quality.

She did not want to post about the products as she value the trust her followers had placed in her.

By the way, she did it while having instant noodles (is that a new trend???). Lest you’re not aware, instant noodles aren’t healthy. We’ve done a video on this here:

Heng claimed that she had told Khong that she won’t be promoting her brand and will be refunding the money. Khong subsequently sent her the bank account details to refund the money to.

When she came back from overseas, she forgot to return the money and flew off to Bali where she didn’t have WiFi at Komodo island.

She transferred the money when she came back to Singapore.

Other owners have come forward to talk about their own bad experiences with Heng.

So who’s right and who’s wrong? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

The Secret To Success? Make Sure You Fail

Meet NTU Provost Lin San, a mathematician who, surprisingly, said something that most, if not all, of us need to know.

It’s okay to fail. In fact, to succeed, you need to fail.

Typical, right?

But he went on to expound what it means.

To fail, it means you need to get out of your comfort zone. Only when faced with the prospect of failing with no safety nets will you be inspired to find solutions to survive.

Channel Newsasia did an interview to probe his thoughts about the current education in Singapore, what education really means and how Singapore universities are preparing students to face the real world.

You can read the full interview here.

Really, if there’s something you need to read today, this would be the one.
