If you haven’t heard, the man in the viral video of “plastic keropok at Geylang Serai Bazaar” got flamed real badly online.
I bet he’s like thinking, “Why, oh why, did I do it?”
Well, guess what?
Now, the authorities have stepped up to sort of flame him as well.
But before that, let’s look at something that’ll affect both you and I: the US-North Korea Summit (no, not old news: read on).
US-North Korea Summit Might Still Happen
Wow, just wow.
The United States-North Korea Summit may just take place after all, according to Trump.
And it could same time, same place for the meeting.
Based on the past few days, expect the US and North Korea to change their minds more times than Mr Morgan flipping his prata every single day.
Trump claimed that the both US and North Korea are having “productive talks” regarding the reinstatement of the summit.
And the location is determined to be in Singapore. If needed, the date for the summit might be pushed back.
“We’re talking to them now. They very much want to do it. We’d like to do it.”
In other words, NSMen, don’t store your army stuff yet.

Reports of Plastic Keropok at Bazaar Fake: AVA
The Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority of Singapore (AVA) said, in a Facebook post, that the video of “plastic keropok at Geylang Serai Bazaar” is false.
They have not received any reports from the public about fake food nor did they detect any fake food in Singapore so far.
It was added that food containing carbohydrates, fats and proteins can be burned in this way. They remind the public to think for themselves before spreading any false news.
With the sharp focus on online fake news now, you’re wondering why people will still choose to spread unverified news instead of checking in with the rightful authority, no?
Daughter of Cyclist Run Over By Rubbish Truck in Toa Payoh Asking For Witnesses

Were you near the area at the time and saw what happened?

Teachers Paying For Parking is “Self-Discipline”
I’m pretty sure after everything that has happen over the past weeks, you’d likely have forgotten about the teachers paying parking fees saga.
But now, the Education Minister has stepped forward to explain why the Ministry of Education (MOE) did what they did.
Mr Ong Ye Kyung said that the MOE did this to abide by a “system of internal discipline”.
While charging teachers for parking goes against MOE’s years of practice, they had to adhere as the Auditor-General Office (AGO) flagged it out as a “taxable benefit”.
“We cannot pick and choose which (AGO) finding to address or comply with-we take them all seriously.”
Mr Ong added that he wasn’t comfortable with the notion of charging teachers for parking as well. But the checks and balances within the system exist for a reason.
That the ‘clean wage’ policy is a moral idea that keeps the government clean.
Plus, free parking is only enjoyed by one group of teachers: those who drives. By collecting money from them and spending the money on all teachers, it’ll be a fairer practice.
Hmm, maybe they can finally use that money to get some red pens for their teachers.
Ex-Singapore Footballer Son’s Medical Fees Covered By Subsidies
Remember when we wrote about this father who died of a heart attack, leaving behind a son fighting for his life?
For those of you who are following this news very closely, you’d be glad to know that the family of Royyan will have enough money for his upcoming treatment.
Late S-League footballer Nur Alam Shah had asked for donations for his son via GIVE.asia with a goal of $120,000.
After he passed away, donors started donating to the family for Royyan’s upcoming surgery.
His widow, Madam Azean Aziz, revised the goal to $170,000 to help support the family as well. The crowdfunding ended with $190,000 and she thanked everyone for their help.
National University Hospital (NUH) told the media that the family is likely not to pay a single cent for the upcoming operation.
Due to the family situation, “the patient has been on full Medifund assistance for the last four years”.
Their records didn’t show any cash payment for Royyan’s medical treatment at NUH.
But Mdm Azean did add that Royyan’s condition is very “complicated”, and that the money raised will be used for two functions.
One, to pay for Royyan’s care over the next 3 years.
And two, to get a doctor from the private sector.
Co-founder of GIVE.asia, Aseem Thakur, said that the family were thinking of getting Royyan treatment at a private hospital.
Cyclist Beat Red Light at Toa Payoh, Crashes into Black Car
If you ride a bicycle everywhere daily, here’s a lesson for you.
The road doesn’t belong to you, nor are you Superman. Leave all the superhero stuff to Clark Kent and just obey traffic rules.
If not, you’ll get knocked over, like this dude right here.
According to STOMP, this happened on 24 May at around 7.47 am. The accident took place near Kim Keat Palm Food Centre.
The traffic light has just turned green for the cars on the road.
However, the cyclist continued riding forward and crashed into a black car. He was sent flying to the ground.
He can stand up but could be seen clutching his shoulders in pain.
