What’s hot in Singapore this week?

FLASH FLOODS.

I am sure you would have seen numerous articles on the ponding situation that transpired on Monday.

From LOL-worthy images to parody videos, this annoying occurrence has trickled down to everyone’s newsfeed.

But before you let a sigh of relief, let me remind you that the Northeast Monsoon is well underway.

Water sensors

Did you know that there are 208 water level sensors in various canals and drains alongside 47 CCTVs at selected places?

These sensors help monitor the drainage system, providing real-time information which is imperative during the rainy season.

You can subscribe yourself to their SMS alerts.

The alerts will include things like water levels in the canals and heavy rain warnings.

So, now you can be prepared when the floodgates decide to open (no pun intended).

Since you’re here, why not watch a video about a guy who lodged a Police report here in Singapore because he was friendzoned? Seriously. Here, watch it and do remember to share it (and also subscribe to Goody Feed YouTube channel)!

The Coca-Cola Plus Coffee has arrived in Singapore, and let’s just say that the taste is very subjective: one of us thinks it’s like coffee candy, one of us thinks it’s like carbonated dark chocolate milk and one of us think it’s like Vanilla Coke. However, none of us thinks that it’s worth a second try, simply because we’ll all rather have Coke and coffee separately.
