  1. Yeah. Seeing scuffles in Hong Kong shopping mall. Those pro Beijing are not in masks. Anti-Beijing in face masks, for obvious reasons - https://youtu.be/zaHfambbGHo

    Let's talk about airport lounges

    Oh? No idea. I haven’t been following Emirates. This time round flew with them because of certain reasons (connections, cost) and was told that complimentary chauffeur transfer was provided even for business class ticket.
  3. Make love, not war.
  4. Sunday 8 Sep 2019. Protest action continue. Lots of marching, singing the American national anthemn. They want Trump to come save them. Huge mass of people at Chater Garden.
  5. What really irks me is that in recent weeks, the protestors in HK have gone about vandalising and destroying a lot of MTR (their subway) property, not just security cameras but signages, ticket machines etc. Many, many recorded acts of such vandalism, as you can see from the samples below. They even show the world a new way to ride the subway. Jump over the gates. Terrible.
  6. Yes, the night of 6 Sep (Friday), the protestors were out on the streets creating havoc again. I read they started the fire using some bin to slow down riot police. See this. That's not all, they were like laying seige to the Mongkok Police station, until Riot Police reinforcements were called in. And all this while, got expats watching the fun, after having their dinner somewhere near Mongkok.
  7. The protests seem to be never-ending. It has gotten to a stage whereby the "citizens" will issue press statement or hold press conferences. And students are protesting too.

    Let's talk about airport lounges

    Flew on Emirates Business for the first time. They provide complimentary chauffeur service, which was a useful perk. A Merc E250 came to pick me up for my journey to Changi (Emirates flies from Terminal 1). I spent some nice time in the Emirates Lounge at Changi, the food was pretty good.
  9. Would opinion turn against these protestors?

    No problems. That said your earlier comment is factually correct - “he has gotten millions from past positions...” Before 2011, Ministerial salaries were substantially higher.

    National Day Parade 2019 #NDP2019

    This year, the mobile column returns to the Padang! A definite crowd favourite! A lot of metal was exhibited. Leopard 2SG led the charge. 10 awesome tanks. 120mm main gun. Oh, I was told the Leopard is air conditioned too. The tanks were bought from Germany, and refurbished. The Hunter Armoured Fighting Vehicle was also unveiled. It had been hailed as the centrepiece of the next generation army. Locally designed and built! Fully digitalised, the Hunter will replace the ageing Ultra M113. Armed with a 30mm cannon and anti-tank guided missiles, the Hunter features an automatic target detection and tracking system, improving the crew’s ability to detect and engage targets. It is also the Army’s first AFV to be equipped with an integrated combat cockpit, which allows its commander and gunner to both operate the vehicle with a common set of controls. The anti aircraft Aster missiles were also unveiled.

    Yeah, when the JSF joins the squadron, I'm sure they will think of how and when to unveil to the Singapore public.

    Majulah Singapura sung with the State Flag flying past, carried by a Chinook helicopter and accompanied by 2 AH-64 Apaches. Very nice. Also, the Air Force flexes with their F15SGs, doing a bomb burst, scissor movement, high-G combat turn and vertical climb.
