Kim Jong-Un Impersonator Detained At Changi Airport

With the upcoming Trump-Kim summit happening in three days time, Singapore is, understandably, in a state of high alert.

Previously, Singapore detained and sent back an Australian with a terrorism-related past and now, an Australian comedian named Lee Howard Ho Wun was detained at Changi Airport.

Going by the name of Howard X, he was famous for impersonating Chairman Kim of the Democratic People Republic of Korea (DPRK).

He claimed that he was detained for two hours and questioned for about 30 minutes.

And that he was told to stay away from special areas Shangri-La and Sentosa Island.

He told the authorities that he wasn’t here to participate in any protests, but to take pictures and videos for political satire purposes.

Going green is the latest trend in the world. What with the melting ice in the north pole and global warming and all.

So when IKEA said that they won’t be selling single-use plastic items in their stores, we’re not exactly surprised.

The items will stop selling in all IKEA stores globally on 1 Jan 2020. The reason, IKEA said, is to promote sustainable living.

According to them, single-use plastic items can result in damages to the wildlife and environment if not disposed of properly.

The items include:

  • SODA drinking straws
  • SÖTVATTEN drinking straws
  • FÖRNYBAR freezer bags
  • ISIGA ice-cube bags
  • FÖRSLUTAS garbage bags

Besides this new initiative, they are also looking to include more plant-based food portions into their food, as well as pack their furniture in renewable or recycled materials.

Two South Korean Journalists Arrested For Trespassing Into North Korea Ambassador’s Home

KBS, after hearing about the issue, said that they were ready to take any measures the Singaporean government deems necessary.

The authorities wants to remind foreigners visiting Singapore to abide by local laws.

If you break the law, you will be dealt with firmly. Including barring you from covering the historic summit between the US president Donald Trump and North Korea Chairman Kim Jong Un.

If convicted, the two men could be jailed up to three months, fined up to $1,500 or both.

S’pore Need To Help With Progress of World Peace

You’ll start seeing this two words getting thrown about all the time, especially in the next few days. If you’re still not sure what I’m talking about, you might like to check one article that I’ve written just for world peace.

And how Singapore is doing all it can to make the summit happen, you’d wonder, why ah? Why are we doing so much?

Well, a very esteemed and well-known political figure has stepped up to the podium and talked about it.

A flight from Singapore to North Korea takes 7 hours. And the time needed for a nuclear missile to reach us from North Korea? You’d only need 20 minutes.

Plus, if anything were to happen in any parts of the world, Singapore’s jobs, trades and investments will be affected.

So it’s best to help facilitate something that’ll help us rather than see it get destroyed.

In addition, it boosts the ego too, knowing that our “little red dot” is capable on standing on the world’s map in terms of security.

So, yes, we are footing the bill for the summit. But at the end of the day, if “world peace” becomes just a bit more real than just pretty words, it’ll help Singapore as well.

Think far.

Agree?

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.
