    BMW M2 Competition crashes into bus stop

    Most of us must be cursing and swearing when the alarm clock rang this morning, as the weather was perfect for sleeping in thanks to the morning thunderstorm. We have almost no doubt that the BMW driver in the following photos must be really angry with himself too! The following photos have been in circulation around social media platorms since the morning of 13 May 2020. Not much is known about the cause of the accident but the it did occur to us that this crash happened between Kallang Road and Geylang Road. The wet roads caused by the rain in the morning might have caused the BMW M2 Competition driver to lose control. With more than 400bhp going to the rear wheels, this is one very 'driftable' weapon...
  2. A Gojek passenger has shared on Facebook that a driver kicked him out when he realised that he was not getting a tip from his passenger! Joseph Lam, the Facebook user who encountered this bizarre incident recounted this incident in which he had touched down at Changi Terminal 1 and human traffic was heavy at the airport. Naturally, that lead to a surge in prices of private hire services. Happily after 10 minutes, he managed to get a driver with Gojek for $14 that was headed towards Tampines Street 34. Upon getting in the car, Mr. Lam felt that something was off with the driver. Below is an extract from his Facebook post. Driver: 3 persons travelling? Us: Yes *light laughter* Driver: Welcome back to Singapore Us: Thank you Driver: Does that entitles me to a tip? Us: Awkward laughter Me: I can give you 5 stars rating Driver: 5 stars rating is of no use for Gojek, useful for Grab though Us: Well, different platform, sorry to hear about that. Driver: Grab surge is $21 for a trip to Tampines now, so it will be nice if you can leave me a tip. Do you mind? Normally I will suggest my clients to leave me a tip of $3 if they don’t mind. Do you mind? Following this, Mr. Lam did not answer, choosing to believe that the driver would not mention it again if he was ignored. However, the driver repeated the question and Mr. Lam had no choice but to reply that he minded. Now here's where things started getting serious. Driver: Well ok if you do mind, I guess I will have to drop you at the nearest bus stop. Me: Dude you serious?! Driver: Yes, because I asked if you mind tipping me and you said you mind. So do you mind me dropping you off here at the middle of the road? Me: You f*ing serious right now?! Driver: I don’t want to force you to tip me, so I will drop you off at the nearest drop off point and you can try using grab. The driver then proceeded to drop Mr. Lam and his passenger off at a bus stop near the airport (20 Airport boulevard) after canceling the ride. After all the bags were unloaded, the driver reminded Lam that everything said has been recorded before remarking "Cause I know who really needs a ride now. Good luck my friends! " Naturally, netizens were supportive of Mr. Lam and condemned the driver for flouting LTA's Private Hire rules. For those who are wondering, there is a rule whereby the termination of a chauffeured private hire car, or requiring a passenger to leave a chauffeured private hire car, without reasonable excuse, before the passenger is conveyed to the destination, can result in a fine of $200 and 5 demerit points. Gojek's Response As of press time, Mr. Lam has responded by stating that Gojek has responded as his post has gone viral with more than 3,000 shares on Facebook. Gojek has since suspended the driver and has tried to do some form of service recovery but Mr. Lam has refused, claiming that his intention was not to gain anything from this incident but simply warn friends and family of such ridiculous extortion and threats. You can read more of Lam's updates below.

    Could not stop laughing!

    There's a whole series on "unnecessary censorship", but I found this the most hilarious. Couldn't stop laughing like a madman! [laugh]
  6. after 6pm, says Amazon's India chief. Personally, I try not to work after office hours unless it's absolutely necessary. That's why bosses are important. I know of some managers who ask their subordinates to do PowerPoint slides for them even during CNY Day 2. Such bosses don't understand work is never ending. It's hard to strike a balance, but we must try. ********** https://www.todayonline.com/world/log-get-life-and-stop-responding-work-emails-or-calls-after-6pm-amazons-india-chief-tells BANGALORE — The head of Amazon.com’s India business has a radical idea for his troops: Log off, get a life. In an memo to his team this month, Mr Amit Agarwal counselled colleagues to stop responding to emails or work calls between 6 pm and 8 am in the interest of “work-life harmony". He also talked about the importance of work discipline and how to draw the line. The leaked note has broken through the sleep-deprived haze in the technology hub of Bangalore to set off heated discussions on social networks and WhatsApp chat groups. Mr Agarwal is a senior vice president at the Seattle-based retail behemoth, which has a reputation of fostering a cutthroat work culture and driving employees to burnout. Many in India wondered if this represented a softer turn for the company. Mr Agarwal has previously served as an executive assistant to Chief Executive Officer Jeff Bezos, who is often painted as a demanding boss. An Amazon representative in India declined to comment on the email. India, with its more than 1.3 billion people, has become a fierce battleground for Amazon.com, and the company has committed some US$5.5 billion to building up its network there. Recently Amazon lost out to Walmart in a bid to buy Flipkart Online Services, India’s leading e-commerce operator. While the demands of technology on workers has become a topic of debate around the world, work-life balance is severely off kilter in Bangalore, India’s third-largest city, where a significant portion of the one million workers employed in the outsourcing business cater to global customers and often work late into the night. It’s even more lopsided in the up-and-coming startup industry, where late-night meetings and weekend calls are the norm. Psychologists, sleep laboratories and fertility clinics have raised concerns about the mental and physical toll wrought by the frenetic work schedule. Insomnia, depression and suicidal tendencies are rampant symptoms, said Dr S Kalyanasundaram, a well-known psychiatrist who sees many technology workers in his thriving south Bangalore practice. “These days I see many 25- and 28-year-olds suffering heart attacks, something I haven’t seen in my four decades in this field,” he said. The doctor said all of his Saturday appointments are reserved for tech workers and often booked months in advance. “For many, there’s only one life and that’s the work life,” Dr Kalyanasundaram said. “It’s a disaster; it’s a ticking time bomb waiting to explode.” In startups from Bangalore to Delhi, founders and top executives lead the gruelling pace by example. Mr Ritesh Agarwal, the founder of the travel unicorn OYO Rooms and unrelated to the Amazon executive, said he gets minimal sleep during the work week. To catch up, he goes to sleep early on Saturday night and wakes up at midday on Sunday. In Bangalore, Mr Byju Raveendran, founder and chief executive officer of the education tech startup BYJU’s said he and his teammates leave recreation to late night hours, sometimes starting football games at midnight and ending as late at 2 am. Businesses from food delivery startups to late-night sports arenas cater to the insomniac workers. Mr Dilip Vamanan, founder of an e-commerce data analytics startup called SellerApp, that helps merchants sell on Amazon, said he clocks 14 hours a day in the office. After that, he takes calls and responds to emails at home. His colleagues complain of back aches, insomnia and stress. Amazon’s Mr Agarwal, may have an inspired idea, but it may be harder to implement than it would seem. “Indian startups have a lot to prove,” said Mr Vamanan. “They are nowhere near a scale where founders can step back and turn on the auto mode.” BLOOMBERG
  7. Time and time again MCF members keep on comparing the prices, specs and features of the cars sold in Singapore to other countries. They lament that they have been short changed by the ADs. Local cars lack this and that when we are paying so much more. Do understand that Singapore has a unique tax structure for the cars it imports. The democratic system is also unique. So stop comparing and be happy.

    Rich people's lifestyles

    For your reading pleasure http://www.moneysmart.sg/money-talks/thing...ld-stop-saying/ 4 Things Rich People Should Stop Saying By Ryan Ong in Featured Post, Money Talks | May 10, 2013 11 Comments I have nothing against rich people. Hell, I
  10. Been quite confused how does the yellow box work. Read this somewhere: "Under the Road Traffic Rules, although part of the vehicle was in the yellow box, it was not causing obstruction to any other vehicle proceeding to or along that road junction and, as such, no offence was committed" and "if there is nothing to impede the flow of traffic one does not have to stop." Does this actually means that it is safe to stop in a yellow box, if there are no cars that I'll be blocking?
  11. I have this colleague who is quite a nice guy. However, he has this habit of digging his nose whenever the opportunity arises. He is not conscious about it and could dig it right in front of people throughout a group conversation. It affected me as we share the common door knob to exit the workplace. Sometimes, he even touched my mouse to access some data on the computer screen. I am sure our folks here might have encountered people around us with similar habit. How to hint to him without hurting/offending him? He is quite a nice guy though.
  12. A question on current state of stop-start systems. How do they work? Am I correct to assume that when the engine is turned off by the system during say a traffic light stop, the ecu is smart enough to : 1.) Stop the crank in such a position that one (assume 4 cyl engine) cylinder is at the end of the compression stroke, start of combustion stroke. When engine needs to start; 2.) For port injected, the air-fuel mixture is in there, ignite spark plug for that cylinder, engine turns over. 2a.) For DI, inject fuel, ignite spark plug, engine turns over. The starter motor is not required right? No traditional cranking, just use a spark to set it off?
  13. Are they the same? Same effect on starter motor? Something that I have been wondering about.
  14. How come my fuel gauge needle stop moving? It stops at 3/4 mark and not at full or empty. May I know how to repair and go where repair? Prefer north or west side of Singapore.
  15. This year japan's car industries so happening. 1st is Kobe steel scandal, now Nissan also face trouble by allowing their unqualified staffs to QC their cars on final inspection stage before rolling off the assembly line. Its across the whole range of their vehicles, not just 1 or 2 models involved. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-nissan-recall/nissan-to-suspend-domestic-production-of-cars-for-japan-market-idUSKBN1CO1FW Recall list: http://www.nissan.co.jp/RECALL/DATA/report4126.html?rstid=20140314rst000001001

  17. http://www.bbc.com/news/health-38988982 If you're having aches and pains, it might even be due to a deficiency in Vitamin D. Many of us who works in office, from early morning till late night, don't get enough sunshine. You might be Vit D deficient without knowing it.

  19. Hello.. Need some advices. One day, I off my car engine for a while (maybe around ten minutes) to buy some things, and when I push start the engine, it shows a weak cranking and the dashboard lights up showing the battery and the oil warning light. Try second pressing the start switch and the car engine starts. This happens twice and the second time is after a fuel pumping. This car is now 168000km. What can be wrong? The battery and starter switch is checked OK. Thanks for the help
  20. But why is it that the TP not doing his job? What if a motorist falls because of the debris? And it was not only one TP, there is another one coming from behind on a big bike but was not captured in my cam. Maybe i am wrong, is the LTA's job?? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zp9qnHTZMyA

  23. from Nov 1..... haha good news or bad news ? More jobs created to summon us ! Great , just what we need , TP turns "ANGEL" Wed, Sep 15, 2010 Soon, you will no longer see a Traffic Police (TP) officer booking vehicles for illegal parking offences. From Nov 1, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) will be taking over five functions from the TP the duty of enforcement against illegal parking offences. The government statutory board will be empowered to close roads or lane for repair, alongside issuing permits for vehicle loads and the use of excluded vehicles such as mixers, on expressways. LTA will also be gazetting speed limits on roads. The functions above were identified as in line with LTA's role to manage road usage, said Mr Colin Lin, LTA?s acting group director for vehicle and transit licensing. The Commander of Traffic Police, Assistant Commissioner of Police, Cheang Keng Keong, said the transfer of duties will allow them to better focus on their core functions such as enforcement against unsafe driving behaviour. Upon taking over the enforcement of illegal parking, LTA will deploy traffic wardens, auxiliary police officers and its own uniformed enforcement officers to carry out the function. LTA's enforcement procedures will be similar to those of the TP. There will be no change to the penalties for illegal parking offences. Members of the public can call LTA's hotline 1800-CALL LTA (2255 582) on illegal parking matters from Nov 1. TP will continue their enforcement action against speeding offences. Issuing permits for carrying of loads on vehicles LTA will take over the issuing of permits for over sized vehicles to travel on the roads. Vehicle owners or drivers can make use of LTA's on-line portal, LTA.PROMPT, to submit their applications. The details of the application process will be made available to the relevant stakeholders closer to the date of takeover. More details on any changes in procedures affecting members of the public will be available on www.onemotoring.com.sg and https://prompt.lta.gov.sg nearer to 1 November 2010. Members of the public may also call the LTA hotline at 1800-CALL LTA (2255 582) for more information.
  24. Before reading detail I thought terrorist attacking at the Shangri-La Dialoge. http://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/singapore/man-shot-dead-after/1883220.html SINGAPORE: One person was shot dead and another two detained after an incident in the vicinity of the Shangri-La hotel early Sunday (May 31) morning, police said. In a statement, the Singapore Police Force said that a "trio was earlier stopped at a Police vehicular checkpoint set up along Ardmore Park. When asked to open the car boot for checks, the driver suddenly accelerated the vehicle towards Anderson Road."Despite Police warnings to stop, the driver continued to crash through Police barricades, endangering the lives of the officers."Police opened fire at the vehicle to stop further danger. The vehicle subsequently stopped at the junction of Orange Grove Road and Anderson Road."Substances believed to be drugs were found on one of the persons arrested, the statement added. Orange Grove Road, Anderson Road and Ardmore Park are temporarily closed to facilitate police operations. The police say they are "in control of the situation", and have advised that members of public stay away from the area.
