    2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross

    Remember the eclipse? His SUV brother is born. Front foggies seems too big though. Remember Mit used to say they may evo their SUVs (somehow they retracted that statement recently). Maybe this is the model they are referring to. Wonder if this will arrive in SG. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g79iujwY930

    Cross Island Line??

    is this a joke? whose brilliant idea is it?? <_<
  4. Been encountering alot of these 'blind' pedestrians. Walk across road, nvr look out for traffic, like grandfather's road. Yesterday encounter 1, dash across road without checking for cars, gimme a scare.....
  5. The video below sadden me more than a bit: It just does not feel right about what we have been doing. But what to do? We need all the resources to build our infrastructures and buildings. But lets be mindful of the costs to other countries, whether we pay them fairly or not is another matter altogether. Our action is causing other people hardship, and that just feel terrible.
  6. What is the correct way to do so? I normally wait for the people to cross then I go, but so long as the people have not crossed the Center divider on a dual carriage way, I will turn.is that the right way? Or do I have to wait for them to cross completely regardless of where they are? Reason for asking is that I see enforcement officers taking a video camera on a tripod pointing at the crossings twice in a week.
  7. I just realize that many home electrical appliances can be cross used, or they share many common functions. Just to share some of the functions i happen to know, come on in and share what you use your home appliances for beside the original function. Rice cooker, not only for cooking rice, many rice cooker can be used to cook porridge, soup steam food as well. I used my to cook porridge, green bean soup, red bean soup, cook soup and keep food warm. Best part is no need to look after the fire, just drop into pot, close and on power. Convention Oven ( the one with a fan), this one is solid, use it to grill, bake, toast, and it even works like an air fryer. Now I even use it to toast bread, toast 9-12 pieces at one go, no need to wait. Even use it to air fried chicken wings. Steamer, this one not only for steaming food, use it to heat up food without getting the food dry up. Use lesser water than steaming over fire, faster and no need to watch fire. I even tried steaming rice and it worked just fine. LOL anyone got any experience to add on and share?
  8. 2 HOURS 3 MIN AGO SINGAPORE - The Media Development Authority (MDA) has directed SingNet Pte Ltd (SingNet) to cross-carry the Barclays Premier League "live" matches over the next three seasons, starting from the 2013-14 season. Singapore Telecommunications (SingTel) had announced back in Oct 2012 that it had acquired non-exclusive broadcast rights to all BPL "live" games for the next three seasons from Aug 2013 from the Football Association Premier League Limited (FAPL) for Mio TV, its subscription TV platform. However, after studying the agreement between SingTel and FAPL, the MDA found that it contained certain clauses that can prevent or restrict the same content from being acquired for transmission by other pay-TV retailers in Singapore. The MDA said that it would not be disclosing further details of these restrictions. What is clear, however, is that the restrictions trigger the Cross-Carriage Measure. According to this measure, which kicked in on Aug 1 2011, pay-TV retailers who have acquired any exclusive content on or after March 12, 2010, must widen the distribution of such content by offering it to subscribers of other pay-TV retailers. As such, SingNet must now begin the process of enabling the cross-carriage of the BPL programme on rival pay-TV retailer StarHub's platform. When contacted, StarHub welcomed the latest development. Said Jeannie Ong, its Head of Corporate Communications and Investor Relations in a statement: "We welcome the decision of the Media Development Authority (MDA) to make the Barclays Premier League (BPL) subject to the cross-carriage measure. "Singapore viewers are the biggest beneficiaries of this decision and we are excited to be able to bring the BPL to our customers on our reliable network once again." The telco, which announced last month that it was finally able to open negotiations with the FAPL, five months after SingTel's announcement in Oct 2012, added that "in light of MDA's decision, there is no longer a necessity for us to acquire the broadcast rights directly from FAPL." SingTel, however, expressed its disappointment at the decision, and said that it would be making an appeal. Said Allen Lew, Chief Executive Officer of Singapore Telecommunications for its 'Digital L!fe' division in a statement: "We are gravely disappointed with MDA's decision requiring SingNet to cross carry BPL content as it disadvantages both the consumers and the industry. "We fully intend to appeal this decision and seek legal recourse if necessary. We assure football fans that we will fight hard so they can continue to enjoy the content that they love at reasonable prices." He warned too that football fans who want to watch the BPL on its own, without subscribing to Mio TV, will probably have to pay "significantly higher fees". "We will ensure that existing SingTel customers who are on contracts will not be affected," he said. "However, those who wish to watch BPL on its own will most likely have to pay significantly higher monthly fees. "This is because it will become untenable for SingTel to subsidise the cost of BPL for such customers." http://www.todayonline.com/sports/mda-orde...-league-matches
  9. Was on the way just now and saw a car stalled in the middle of a cross junction's yellow box. Location at cross junction near IMM, chevron and international business park. The drive just on his hazard light and started in the car with a girl, mingling with their handphone.... For goodness sake, get off the car and push it to the road side, rather then leaving it in the middle of the cross junction's yellow box and jam up the traffic!!!!!! STUPID!!
  10. big digging project once and for all? more congestion coming that might affect commuting. --- Singapore Power to build cross-island tunnels for electrical cables by Woo Sian Boon Updated 10:54 AM Sep 17, 2012 SINGAPORE - To minimise public inconvenience due to road-digging works to replace or maintain electricity cables, Singapore Power is embarking on its Transmission Cable Tunnel Project, in which two cross-island tunnels will house the island's extra-high voltage electricity transmission cables. The tunnels, which will be constructed 60 metres underground, will facilitate faster and more efficient maintenance and replacement of cables. SP has awarded six contracts to five construction companies for the project. The five companies are Hyundai Engineering, Nishimatsu Construction & KTC Civil Engineering and Construction, Obayashi Corporation, Samsung C & T Corporation and SK Engineering & Construction. Construction for two 35km long tunnels - the North-South and East-West - will begin at the end of the year, and continue until 2018. One of SP's largest infrastructure undertakings to date, the S$2 billion project will provide power to more than 1.3 million commercial, industrial and residential customers in Singapore. The announcement was made by managing director of SP PowerGrid Sim Kwong Mian and deputy managing director of tunnel projects Michael Chin this morning. --- http://www.todayonline.com/Hotnews/EDC1209...ectrical-cables

    Singapore may eventually having more than 50% of non- Singaporeans in 15 - 20 years time. The way I see, is not going to be sustainable. Visit My Website

  14. Some 7,000 pedestrians with disabilities will soon have more time to cross the road, as the Land Transport Authority (LTA) yesterday announced an extension of the Green Man Plus scheme to 235 pedestrian crossings in 13 housing estates. The scheme works with the aid of a concession card that pedestrians can use to tap on a specially designed card reader, which will trigger the addition of more time - between three and 12 seconds - for the pedestrian to cross. New features of the system include a larger sensor area. A new card will also be rolled out for pedestrians with disabilities and these cards are expected to be ready later this month. It will feature the text, Green Man Plus, in Braille so that users with visual disabilities will be able to identify the correct card to use. Currently, only the elderly can activate the system with their purple senior citizen card. The LTA's move was welcomed by voluntary welfare organisations yesterday. "It's a good idea and it shows that the authorities are considering ways to improve the lives of the elderly and disabled," said Disabled People's Association president Nicholas Aw. Ms Joyce Wong, senior assistant director for rehabilitation services at the Society for the Physically Disabled (SPD), hopes the scheme would eventually be made available at all traffic lights. She also urged the LTA to consider opening up the scheme to families with young children, or children with behavioural issues due to their disabilities. Sites at Bukit Merah, Outram, Chinatown and Queenstown will be among the first to be fitted with the system. Other estates that the scheme will be extended to include Geylang, Hougang, Kallang, Marine Parade, Rochor and Tampines. Estates, such as Ang Mo Kio, Bedok and Toa Payoh, were chosen due to their high elderly population. The entire project is slated for completion in 2014 with a cost of S$11,000 per crossing. Beyond the extension of the scheme, Mr Aw felt that the LTA could do better in the design of pedestrian crossings to aid pedestrians with disabilities. He cited the junction near Telok Ayer Market, where pedestrians could walk diagonally across the junction, as an example. Ms Wong, meanwhile, felt that authorities could look at providing alternative routes for people with disabilities if it rains. Both added that road safety campaigns and public education on graciousness would also be helpful. Source: http://www.todayonline.com/Singapore/EDC12...-to-cross-roads
  15. looking for cross bar for picanto. anyone selling? or where can i get it from?
  16. was raining and dark this morning. sent my nephew to school and there is a zebra crosiing right outside the school gates. i was the second car, i saw 2 students crossing the zebra crossing with their hands out, "stop" hand sign. i presume the first car did not see them and had no intention to slow down, from my point of view the funny thing is, i can tell the students were aware of it and they bo chay and keeping crossing. at the last min, the first car hard braked to avoid knocking down the students! i am just wondering, since the students already saw the non stopping car, y are they still crossing?! Do they think, since they are on the zebra crossing, they are the king? Yes, we should give way to pedestrian at zebra crossing but there are times when u will find kuku drivers who are no alert enough to spot them... i just wonder how do schools teach their students to cross the street... or is it the students sai lan???

  20. Red Cross finds $90k has gone missing 08:02 AM Dec 06, 2010 SINGAPORE - The Singapore Red Cross has filed a police report against an employee for allegedly misappropriating about $90,000. The employee, an administrative assistant from the finance department, has been suspended from duty. In a statement late last night, the society said the problem was uncovered during internal checks on its accounts on Dec 1 and that the discrepancies started in February. It added that the employee cannot be named as investigations are in progress. The police report was filed on Friday and the society has also reported the incident to the Commissioner of Charities. When contacted, Singapore Red Cross secretary-general Christopher Chua said: "We're taking it seriously. We're investigating and we'll tighten our processes to ensure it doesn't happen again. We'd like to assure the public that their donations will be taken care of." The society was unable to divulge details, but Mr Chua said the missing money did not come from any specific fund or donation drive. The incident is the latest in a number of cases over the years to have occurred in the charity sector. The Commercial Affairs Department has been investigating, since May, possible misuse of funds at City Harvest Church. Investigations are also continuing into the Sri Siva Krishna temple in Marsiling. Past high-profile cases include the National Kidney Foundation and Ren Ci Hospital and Medicare Centre. The Singapore Buddhist Federation is also exploring possible disciplinary action that can be taken against former Ren Ci chief executive Ming Yi. http://www.todayonline.com/Singapore/EDC10...as-gone-missing

    Liverpool : RH Cross First Hurdle ....

    RH crosses the first hurdle with a group of young players as he left 10 seniors behind (World Cup players)........ This is the first time I heard of this players in Liverpool side : 1) David Amoo 2) Nathan Eccleston 3) Lauri Dalla Valle ESPN Latest: Rabotnicki Kometal 0 - 2 Liverpool David Ngog struck twice as Roy Hodgson began his reign as Liverpool manager with a comfortable victory from a potentially tricky Europa League test tonight. The Frenchman found the net in each half as an under-strength Liverpool side overcame FK Rabotnicki with little alarm in the first leg of their third qualifying round tie in Macedonia. With 17 days still to go before their Premier League opener, Liverpool were without 10 of their World Cup players but their blend of youth and experience coped well in a game of little drama. Hodgson's decision to leave behind the likes of Steven Gerrard and Joe Cole was fully vindicated. Daniel Agger, Martin Skrtel, Sotirios Kyrgiakos, Alberto Aquilani, Lucas and Ngog were the established players to start, while new signing Milan Jovanovic was handed his debut alongside David Amoo, making his first senior appearance. Diego Cavalieri, Martin Kelly and Jay Spearing made up the team but it was a sign of the times that the side on show at the Philip II Stadium - an old arena halfway through an impressive rebuild - was still worth

    Cross Roads - What would you do?

    Dear guys and girls, I'm facing a cross road. My current job is taking up alot of my time and I have 2 very young children. I have been working for the past 9 years. When I was single / dating, time was not a factor to consider. I can work till cows come home. This job pays well but no time to enjoy with my family, friends and self. As usual, I got HDB loans and car loan to cover. No other liabilities. Salary is able to cover all loans, credit card expenses. I work about 16 hours a day. Play with my children only 1 hour. Talk with my wife for half hr. Some times, don't even talk cuz she will be watching tv while I work at home. By the time, I finished, she's asleep. I am thinking of changing another job but the pay is not gg to be as good as what I'm drawing. I have got job offers currently but hesitant for fear that the salary will not be able to afford my lifestyle. New salary should be able to cover present loans. Just that because of lower salary, got to tighten belt a little. But of course, lower paying job means lesser expectations and time spent on work too. What would you do? Time VS Money. I need your serious advice on this. Please poll.
  24. Hi guys, Can recommend tire shop that does cross rotation (remove tire from rims and swap to other side) and balancing at AMK Autopoint? Heard the charges is around $40 to remove from rim and cross rotate. Does this include the usual $15-$20 to just swap fore/aft and balance fore? Thanks!
  25. SINGAPORE NEWS SINGAPORE : With immediate effect, Pay TV providers which acquire exclusive broadcast rights to any programme, must cross-carry each other's content. This applies to any contract signed or renewed from March 12. It does not affect existing contracts. The fierce bidding over rights to broadcast the upcoming World Cup matches raised concerns over the issue of 'exclusive' rights, which has affected consumers in the Pay TV market. To lock out competitors, Acting Minister for Information, Communications and the Arts Lui Tuck Yew said on Friday said Pay TV operators are willing to fork out substantial amounts for exclusive rights. This has led consumers to cry foul, especially since they have to subscribe to both SingTel and StarHub - rivals in Singapore's PayTV market - for example, to catch their favourite football teams in action. This practice of holding on to exclusive content though is rare in international markets. Mr Lui said: "Content costs now constitute a significant percentage of pay TV operators' revenue, compared to international benchmarks. For example, SCV's content costs to revenue ratio has risen from 40 per cent prior to 2007 to close to 70 per cent today. This is much higher than the average 40 per cent for Pay TV operators in most other countries, including US, UK and Hong Kong. "Secondly, Singapore suffers from a high degree of content fragmentation compared to other countries. Out of 179 channels today, only seven channels are common to both SCV and SingTel. An international benchmarking exercise using a group of 16 popular channels showed that Singapore was the only country with exclusive arrangements for all 16 channels. "MDA's (Media Development Authority) review has concluded that this situation is unlikely to self-correct in the near future, and steps need to be taken to address this market failure". So under the new Media Market Conduct Code, there will be a Public Interest Obligation. This means Pay TV retailers must cross-carry each other's exclusive content. For example, if SingTel acquires a new channel exclusively, it must make this channel available to StarHub. StarHub must carry this programme at the same time SingTel is airing it - and vice versa. StarHub also cannot make any modifications to the content. This includes all the advertisements and branding SingTel may have embedded into the programme. And SingTel will have to pay StarHub to carry its exclusive content. It will be left to the telcos to work out a cost for this. For consumers, it means that they can watch an exclusive channel through just one Pay TV retailer. Consumers, regardless of which Pay TV service provider they belong to, will be charged the rate that has been stipulated by the original content provider. In the case of the example, whatever SingTel charges its customers for the exclusive content, StarHub customers will pay the same rate. Mr Lui elaborated: "Consumers would no longer require multiple set-top boxes or switch retailers each time the rights of exclusive content changes hands. This will facilitate greater consumer access to pay-TV content, and re-focus competition to other aspects, such as service differentiation and competitive packaging". For the industry, it means opening up the market to new players. The rights holder will be able to brand the exclusive content, market it and monetise it as it wishes. While the law takes immediate effect, the actually sharing of content is likely only to take place from September. For now, MDA will consult industry players, and sort out the details, like how consumers' bills will look like, and whether the review will affect new media platforms. As for how this will impact the broadcast of World Cup matches in Singapore, it is status quo for now, as SingTel and StarHub have submitted a joint bid and are waiting for FIFA's reply. Mr Lui said: "Let me just say that I am very happy that World Cup comes around only once every four years. We understand that SingTel and StarHub have recently made a new offer and negotiations with FIFA are still on-going. This is a commercial matter that is best left to the two pay-TV retailers and FIFA to settle. "I know time is running short; we are well into the second half, we are approaching injury time, but we remain hopeful that the negotiations will reach a sensible outcome." - CNA/ms Too bad, the actually sharing of content will only take place from September this year - After the World Cup.
