  1. A recent video uploaded on SG Road Vigilante of an Audi A4 using red and blue flashing lights to impersonate law enforcement vehicles has gone viral. The “less than 24-hour old” video has since gone viral and has about 250 shares (as of present). Here’s the video if you haven’t already seen it Video from SG Road Vigilante YouTube Colours of the law At about 19 seconds into the video, we see an Audi A4 light up with red and blue flashing lights to overtake or get past the car that was recording the video. A string of vulgarities can be heard coming from the driver. This is forgivable because ANYBODY would be pissed off if they had to scoot over and give way to a “police vehicle” only to find out that it was all a big fat lie. Screenshot from SG Road Vigilante YouTube The video then shifts to the POV of the dash cam. The footage doesn’t show the red and blue flashing lights tho, but it does show where the incident took place – Terminal 4, Changi Airport. A weak chase ensues The driver then decides to chase the Audi down (which was uncalled for but ego probably kicked in). Screenshot from SG Road Vigilante YouTube However, they enter a single merging lane, and there’s a Hyundai Avante between them. For some reason, the Audi slows down at this single lane for a couple of seconds and the vulgarity spewing driver wastes no time in honking and high beaming to signal his displeasure. It’s a good thing that there was the Hyundai between them though or things might have escalated even further. The Audi seems like it wanted to stop but decided not to in the end and drove off. Angry driver tails for a while and the video cuts off. Two wrongs, no right We did some research and under no circumstance should you be using red and blue flashing lights unless you are from law enforcement. Image by Singtech.com.sg However, vulgarity spewing driver was obviously looking for a fight of sorts with all that aggression. Just keep calm lah! Why so angry? The video is evidence enough for him to kena by the real police what? Here’s what Singaporeans think Image from SG Road Vigilante Facebook This guy sounds like he’s got it all figured out.
  2. You should be here ! If you love cool cars, performance, vintage, modifieds or simply likes cars , here it is at the Singapore Motor Festival held last week at the Singapore Changi Exhibition Centre with hundreds of participating owners gathering here. As usual, the GTR makes a loud presence during their arrival, puns intended. The Malaysian tuners also had theirs driven across the causeway to give the crowd a deafening explosive exhaust popping and flame throwing. It was an awesome day, but you can catch all the action here in this video if you've miss it 🙂 Watch the video HERE
  3. Singapore did not copy the idea or design for Jewel Changi Airport from anyone. Changi Airport Group (CAG) and world-renowned architect Moshe Safdie, who designed the structure that has drawn international acclaim since its opening in April, have hit back at the chief of Qatar Airways, who made the accusation. At the unveiling of expansion plans for Qatar's Hamad International Airport in Doha two weeks ago, Mr Akbar Al Baker said, in an obvious reference to Changi's Jewel: "When I show you the images later (of the planned enhancements), you will realise that somebody copied our design, which was already on the table nearly six years ago... We had individuals from that country, I will not name it, that took our design and did it." An indoor waterfall and massive gardens are among the features planned that are strikingly similar to what Changi's Jewel offers. Construction is to commence by early next year, Mr Al Baker said. Responding to the copycat allegation, CAG chief executive Lee Seow Hiang told The Straits Times yesterday: "We value the originality and creativity of ideas as we innovate to elevate the Changi experience for all our visitors. We respect intellectual property rights and expect the same of all our partners." When Changi embarked on the Jewel project, the mission was to create a game-changing airport experience, he said. In July 2012, a competitive process was put in place to seek out the best ideas around the world for an integrated lifestyle complex. The contract was eventually awarded in May 2013 to CapitaLand for its proposal featuring a design conceptualised by Safdie Architects "which we found to be the most compelling", Mr Lee said. "Safdie Architects has since informed us that they have not done any work in Qatar; neither has Mr Safdie ever visited the country", he stressed. Mr Safdie said: "We have been pursuing the concept of gardens as a focal point for the public realm for many decades. We have also explored the concept of harvesting the rain into internal rainfalls at Ben Gurion Airport (Israel) and Marina Bay Sands. "The success of these explorations have further inspired and led us to create a new icon in the Jewel that we see today - a new kind of urban place that celebrates the elements of nature and urban life. "We are delighted that Jewel's uniqueness and originality has been well-recognised by the international community and resulted in many wanting to emulate it." The 10-storey complex has attracted about 50 million visitors since it opened six months ago. Design in question:
  4. http://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/singapore/cyclists-welcome-dedicated-cycling-lane-on-extended-tanah-merah-8784944 LTA has opened a new 10km stretch at Tanah Merah Coast Road with a new feature which is the first in SG: on-road cycling lanes, 2m wide and supposed to cater to serious speed cyclists. Cyclists are happy but this actually poses a safety risk to both cyclists and motorists alike. I drive along this road every day, and I have encountered a few times at cross-junctions and T-junctions where both the cyclist and motorist think they have the right of way, and there is a near-miss. Motorists are supposed to stop on the outermost vehicle lane and not inside the cycling lane if there is a need to stop the vehicle, however most vehicles still stop within the cycling lane in order not to obstruct traffic. This in turn poses a safety risk to the speed cyclists who may be bending down and may not be able to stop in time to avoid collision with the stopped vehicle. This stretch of road is also frequented by large trucks and heavy vehicles, which adds to the risk due to the truck height and bigger blind spots. My view is that our motorists and cyclists should be briefed or given some guidelines on the usage of the new feature, such as the one in the link below. Not sure if the latest Basic or Advanced Theory Test has included this new feature? https://movehappy.sg/tanah-merah-coast-road-cycling-lane/ Any thoughts are welcome.

    Changi Airport - World Best

    CNA report : Changi Airport named world's best by Business Traveller readers Posted: 18 September 2012 1229 hrs SINGAPORE: Changi Airport has been named the world's best by readers of a leading travel publication. It is the airport's 25th consecutive win. Launched in 1984, the Business Traveller awards are an annual celebration of travel companies that have made a difference to the lives of travellers from the United Kingdom and Europe. The results are determined by votes from readers and audited by an independent company. Other winners this year include Singapore Airlines and The Fullerton Bay Hotel Singapore. Mr Julian Gregory, managing director of Panacea Publishing, which publishes the Business Traveller, said continued investment, innovation and consistency of service have created an environment with a sense of calm efficiency. He described Changi Airport as a "place where our readers can work or relax without the stresses and distractions that impact travellers so much today". The award was accepted by Mr Lee Seow Hiang, chief executive officer of Changi Airport Group, at a ceremony in London on Monday. "What we did was to focus on the passengers we served and through the years, invested to develop an offering that resonates with the needs of our passengers and visitors. To stay ahead, we introduced practical and innovative facilities, and infused the Changi Service DNA - personalised, stress-free and positively surprising - in the overall airport experience. This philosophy of providing a first-class Changi Experience will continue to be the backbone of our success," said Mr Lee. The facilities at the airport, which opened in 1981, included themed gardens, movie theatres, rooftop swimming pool, gym and spa and hundreds of shopping and dining options. The world's most-awarded airport, Changi has received 18 accolades since the beginning of the year. This brings to 410 the total number of awards it has won in its history. - CNA/cc Fully agree, after the major renovations in the past 3 years, the results and feeling when landed in Changi Airport after passing through the Immigration was But the stupid AETOS or CISCO officers on duty at the exit after claiming baggages should be Our baggages had been cleared through the highly sophisticated X-ray machines installed at the baggage handling centre and they still pick at random to screen through their X-ray machine placed near the exit. Have to unload all the bags again and wasting of time waiting to be screened again. At times, the queue is very long and slow process.

  7. Hello Kitty cafe in Singapore to shut down in February 2019 https://www.straitstimes.com/lifestyle/food/hello-kitty-cafe-in-singapore-to-shut-down-in-february-2019. SINGAPORE - Singapore's first Hello Kitty-themed cafe, which opened amid much fanfare more than two years ago at Changi Airport's Terminal 3 arrival hall, will be closing early next year. "They say all good things come to an end, and Hello Kitty Orchid Garden will be shutting its doors for good come February 2019," said the cafe in a Facebook post on Friday (Oct 12). It added in a statement that its last day of operations will be on Feb 8 next year. Responding to queries from The Straits Times, Ms Fiona Chin, assistant manager for marketing at Europa Specialty Restaurant, which owns and operates the cafe, said the decision to close the cafe comes with the end of the company's licence and partnership with Sanrio, the Japanese company which owns the Hello Kitty Brand. She added that there are no plans to relocate the cafe, which will be closed permanently. As for whether there will be any Hello Kitty cafes in Singapore in future, she declined to comment. "We would like to express gratitude and appreciation to all the fans and supporters of the cafe. We are humbled by the support and look forward to bringing our customers more exciting F&B themes and concepts,” said Ms Chin. The eatery, the world's first 24-hour Hello Kitty cafe, drew hundreds of fans at its opening in May 2016, with some queueing up hours before it opened. Its Hello Kitty-inspired dishes include waffles in the shape of the iconic feline character, as well as smoked salmon sandwiches, spicy dried shrimp sambal pasta and frozen yogurt. In July this year, the cafe also announced the launch of ice-cream mooncakes featuring the character.. To mark its departure, the cafe will be throwing four tea parties in December. Tickets to the party, sold at $138 for a pair, include canapes, gelato as well as limited-edition Hello Kitty merchandise. The sessions, which will be held at the cafe, will also feature games, quizzes and lucky draws. The Straits Times has contacted the cafe for more details on why it is closing and whether it is relocating elsewhere.

  9. Hi folks, Just wondering if anyone knows is there any place that is near to Changi Airport? Reason being i am travelling for only a few days and is really much more convenient for me to drive rather than to take cab. I am thinking Pasir Ris Park or those private housing estate at Tampines or Changi area. Not that i am trying to save money but i really need the vehicle when i returned. Thanks.
  10. Personally I took Scootbiz once was a terrible experience. The food worst than the worst food i ever had in Tekong, they had used spoons on the floor from the previous passenger and they didnt even check for previous passenger belongings! I found a headphone case under my footrest when I couldn't close it Sambal stains and smudges on the walls... all this on a new 787 "Dreamliner" I dont think ill ever take again. With the recent Scoot delay debacle do you all still dare to sit?
  11. For all your children who love Hello Kitty and maybe yourself? Another reason to visit Changi Airport to soak in the Christmas fest.

Here’s what visitors can expect: SINGAPORE'S LARGEST INDOOR DRONE SHOW Forty drones will light up the airport’s Terminal 3 Departure Hall, forming various shapes such as a snowflake and a Christmas tree, every night at 7.30pm and 9pm.

    Duty free at Changi Airport

    Hi MCFers and frequent travellers, Want to ask if the duty-free liquor and beer at Changi Airport is really the cheapest and best-est as often claimed by DFS itself (of course) and many Singaporeans who only buy from there when they return from overseas? I have always been under that impression and thus NEVER EVER look at duty-free shops at overseas airports but quai quai (dutifully) wait till I have landed at Changi to duly file into DFS Changi to buy my quota. Don't travel frequently so blur in this area. Any frequent MCF-travellers can shed insights? Or have I been snooked by DFS for the longest time ever?

  16. Hi all, as I'm going to take ferry to desaru for a holiday, I'm thinking whether to park my car at the changi ferry terminal (not tanah merah ferry terminal). I'm concerned about the safety aspects. Anyone has experience of parking there? I'm thinking, if I don't drive,would I have difficulty getting a cab when I return to sg? Thanks in advance to any advice!

  19. Hi guys. Need some quick advice. Got a wedding anniversary coming up. Thinking of buying my wife something nice. Maybe a Bottega bag or something. Is it significantly cheaper at Changi airport ? Was thinking I could get it at dfs since I got a trip to hongkong later this month. If not then I just get from ion later
  20. Other than airport and fast food, where can I get good breakfast around changi at 5am? Any type also can. Alternatively, is there some where along/beside PIE that I can get good food at 5am in the morning?
  21. Anyone saw the accident just now??was driving out for lunch....saw the TP all over the place, at first thought spot check on mods..... DHL truck hit the Vios.....the VIOs pretty badly smashed....pray the occupants are ok but i doubt it...DHL truck lying on the side...think it hit the trees....
  22. This may crop up in the near future. For the record. I am not a supporter of the current regime. I support LKY, the man though. Thoughts?
  23. Anybody out there knows the driver of a white EVO that likes to speed down Changi coast road? This morning (Sun) was the second time I saw him, so probably something he/she does often, I guess. Speeding at least 150-170km/h. Saw same thing 2 weeks back. Doesn't he/she realize that there are lots of cyclists on a Sunday? Please lah, can go speed in the afternoon, or at night, but not Sunday morning lah....
