    Royal Family Rumble

    Britain's Queen Elizabeth has summoned her grandson Prince Harry for a crisis meeting to discuss future arrangements for him and his wife Meghan following the couple’s shock announcement that they want to step back from royal duties. Prince Harry’s father Prince Charles, the heir to the throne, and his elder brother Prince William, will also attend the meeting, due to take place on Monday (Jan 13) at the queen’s Sandringham estate in Norfolk, eastern England, a Buckingham Palace source told Reuters. Meghan, an American former TV actress, will try to join via telephone from Canada where she returned earlier in the week to rejoin the couple’s baby son, Archie. Prince Harry and Meghan, officially known as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, surprised the rest of the royal family last Wednesday by publicly announcing they wanted a “new working model” that would allow them to spend more time in North America and to be financially independent. They did not consult the 93-year-old monarch or other members of the family before making their announcement on a new website, sussexroyal.com, a move which hurt and disappointed the queen and other royals, according to a royal source. The split between Prince Harry and the other Windsors is the latest crisis the royal family has faced in a period described last month as “bumpy” by the queen in a televised annual address. Such is the global interest in Prince Harry and Meghan that their news has overshadowed a scandal surrounding the queen’s second son Prince Andrew and his friendship with disgraced late US financier Jeffrey Epstein, who hanged himself in jail in August while awaiting trial on federal sex trafficking charges. In an emotional TV interview last October, Prince Harry admitted he and Prince William had fallen out. The Sunday Times newspaper said the elder prince had spoken of his sadness at the rift. The brothers were close for years following the death of their mother Princess Diana in a Paris car crash in 1997. The newspaper quoted William as saying to an unnamed friend:“I’ve put my arm around my brother all our lives and I can’t do that any more, we’re separate entities. “I’m sad about that. All we can do, and all I can do, is try and support them and hope that the time comes when we’re all singing from the same page. I want everyone to play on the team.” This isn't a crisis la. Australia is a crisis. Not this. Hmmm.

  3. Prince Harry and literal American dream Meghan Markle will get hitched in May. Reports are, it will be an intimate, casual ceremony at a rustic little chapel in Windsor Castle. Heard that the hotels are all booked out within minutes or seconds once their wedding date was made known to the public.

    Royal wedding

    Anyone watching "live" telecast? Yamnz.
  13. The two young Britons are getting hitched on Friday, April 29th, 2011. To mark the occasion, the groom, one William Arthur Philip Louis Mountbatten-Windsor, better known as Prince William of Wales, and his bride-to-be, Kate Middleton, have been "honored" by exotic car customizer, Project Kahn. The Project Kahn Wedding Commemorative Maybach 57 (what, no Bentleys or Rolls-Royces lying around the shop, guys?) is a blatant PR grab "tribute" to the new royal couple that will have nothing at all to do with the royal wedding itself reside at Project Kahn's Bradford headquarters. The touched-up super Benz features Kahn-designed 22-inch wheels, smoked glass, an upgraded interior and darkened taillamps. It also wears the license plate, "4 HRH", which means For His Royal Highness. The ultimate commemorative vehicle to mark HRH Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding day. Previous royal weddings have often been marked by commemorative stamps, coins and a range of memorabilia. However, Afzal Kahn has released the ultimate commemorative item to mark HRH Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding day. The pearl white Project Kahn Maybach 57 complete with the regal-sounding number plate: 4 HRH
  14. SMC LAWYER TELLS COURT: Surgeon inflated $400 bill to $211,000 By Selina Lum A SPECIALIST who treated surgeon Susan Lim's patient sent a bill for $400. She marked it up to $211,000 when she billed the Brunei High Commission here. Another doctor charged $500, but Dr Lim bumped that up to $93,500. Yet another bill for $3,000 was raised to $285,100. These and several other revelations of how Dr Lim charged her patient - a woman member of Brunei's royal family - for treatment by other doctors were made in the High Court yesterday by Senior Counsel Alvin Yeo. Representing the Singapore Medical Council (SMC), he cited the allegedly inflated bills to show there was a case for a disciplinary committee to launch an inquiry against the doctor. Dr Lim is fighting the SMC's decision to appoint a second disciplinary committee to investigate an accusation by the Health Ministry here that she overcharged her Brunei patient, Pengiran Anak Hajah Damit. The patient, the younger sister of Brunei's Queen and a cousin of the Sultan, had breast cancer and died in August 2007. Dr Lim treated the woman from 2001 until she died. Dr Lim's lawyer, Senior Counsel Lee Eng Beng, told the court yesterday that she had informed the patient early on in their relationship that the close care and attention she needed would cost $100,000 to $200,000 a day. He said the patient had insisted on having Dr Lim as her doctor and, referring to the royal household, had assured Dr Lim she should not worry about the charges, saying: 'Istana is paying.' The Bruneians paid all her bills up to March 2007. But after the patient died, Dr Lim was queried on the rest of the 2007 bill, which came up to $24.8 million. After Dr Lim gave various discounts, the bill was eventually brought down to $3.25 million. Yesterday, the court heard for the first time the list of specific charges on the bills. Mr Yeo said that third-party specialists who treated the patient would send their bills to Dr Lim. She would then mark up the bills when she sent her invoices to the Brunei High Commission. Mr Yeo argued that the way the invoices were presented suggested those were the fees being charged by the other doctors or were intended for them. He stressed he was not asking the High Court to conclude that Dr Lim was overcharging, but that a disciplinary committee should look into the matter. Mr Yeo also said Dr Lim had charged the patient for cancelling two conferences, on top of treatment fees. One bill was for $78,000, while the other was for $180,000. She also charged between $35,000 and $45,000 a day when her employees accompanied the patient for radiotherapy sessions at the hospital. When the patient was in intensive care for five days in May 2007, attended to by hospital doctors and nurses, Dr Lim charged $450,000 for the first day and $250,000 for the other four days for 'monitoring services'. In July 2007, the Brunei High Commission alerted Brunei's Ministry of Health (MOHB), expressing concern over the 'very high bills' from Dr Lim. That month, two MOHB representatives came to Singapore and spoke to Dr Lim Cheok Peng, chief executive of Parkway Holdings, which runs the medical centres where Dr Lim has her clinics. She then started to reduce her fees. On Aug 1, 2007, she wrote to MOHB to disregard the bills that were for services provided by the other doctors, and gave a 25 per cent discount on her own bills. On Aug 18, 2007, she wrote to MOHB apologising for the 'inadvertent mistakes' made by her office. But on Aug 27, 2007, MOHB asked Singapore's Health Ministry to intervene, saying the charges were unacceptable. On Nov 12, 2007, Dr Lim wrote to MOHB, offering to waive her fees from Jan 15 to June 14, 2007, as a goodwill gesture and suggesting that it pay only $3.25 million. In January 2009, Dr Lim and her husband went to Brunei and offered to waive all her fees and third-party bills if MOHB was prepared to issue a 'letter of good standing'. The letter was to essentially state that the Brunei government would not pursue the matter any further and take no issue with her bills. Her request was not taken up. Dr Lim now claims she had a 'fee agreement' with her patient, but yesterday, pointing to her 'tactics', Mr Yeo said these were not the actions of someone who had an agreement. He argued that her move to stop the SMC from setting up a disciplinary committee was an abuse of process. The hearing continues on Monday.

  20. Are u guys aware that there's a high profile martial art matches between Kung Fu and Muay Thai last week? Below is some articles and a video i googled More of the matches video can be found at Youku (Maybe some kind souls wanna search and link here) November 24, Beijing Time, the Chinese Kung Fu [功夫, gong fu] vs. Professional Thai Kick-boxing Competition Organizing Committee issued a public announcement: The 2009 Chinese Kung Fu vs. Professional Thai Kick-boxing Competition will be held in 2009 December at Foshan in Guangdong. The competition will use Chinese wushu rules as a foundation, integrated with a portion of Thai Kick-boxing rules, allowing the two opposing combatants to use elbows and knee techniques to attack their opponent, with every match having five rounds and each round being three minutes. Recently, Thai boxing champions have become crazy, wanting to challenge the Shaolin Temple, even spreading around that they want to beat the Abbot Shi Yongxin onto his knees. The five champions of Thai Kick-boxing are: "神目杀" [shen mu sha], "鬼见膝" [ gui jian xi], "魔术锥" [mo shu zhui], "拳灭风" [quan mie feng], "屠龙肘" [tu long zhou]. This time, all five champions will appear, with their original motivation being to "destroy Shaolin". When a journalist asked whether "destroy Shaolin" was putting things arrogantly, the boxing champion 考克莱 [kao ke lai] waved his right fist disdainfully saying: "Tell Shi Yongxin to come to the ring and then see!" There was even a Thai kick-boxing champion yelling: "Even my woman can defeat Chinese kung fu!" Why did he say this? Apparently, there was an amazingly beautiful Vietnamese girl who had previously fought against Chinese kung fu, and that this Miss Ruan just so happens to be the girlfriend of one of the Thai kick-boxing champions organized to come challenge [the Shaolin Temple], thus explaining this kind of talk http://www.thaivisa.com/forum/Muay-Thai-Fi...ha-t319105.html http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/china/2009-12...ent_9083198.htm http://forum.globaltimes.cn/forum/showthread.php?t=9736 http://www.kungfu-fans.com/chinese-kung-fu...ing-live-video/

  22. Hi, Saw from some articles that Amsoil is Group IV while, Royal Purple is Group IV with some Group V additives oil. However, heard that Royal Purple thin before 10k km mileage (8k km?). Not sure how true it is. But below links show us that RP seem one of the best: http://www.animegame.com/cars/Oil%20Tests.pdf If intend to use for 10k mileage, which is the better choice with better performance and FC? Currently, understand that they are both at the same price. For 42k km mileage car, should we choose a W30 or W40 type? Kindly advise..Thx BTW, has been using Schaeffer all the time. Since it is no longer as cheap in the past, must as well change to one of the the above more premium brand instead.
  23. Anyone using RP for their Skoda ride? Is it TAT good as wat most MCFers say it does? Pls comment... I'm thinking of giving this brand of engine oil a try...
