  1. We had a chat with Lawrence Kim, Ebenezer Group's CEO to find out why he decided to go green by electrifying his fleet. Many might know of Hong Seh Motors as the company that held the local distributorship of Ferrari and Maserati supercars, but the company has since shifted its focus towards building a greener world. Being among the first movers importing electric passenger and commercial Electric Vehicles (EV) into Singapore, Hong Seh Motors has played a huge role in electrification here. And it continues to work with its partners to champion the switch to EV where it matters the most - the large number of commercial vehicles that run on Diesel or Petrol. To help us gain a better understanding about the challenges and benefits of switching to EVs, Hong Seh has arranged for us to have a chat with one of its biggest clients and partners, Lawrence Kim, CEO, Ebenezer Group (a logistics company). Here's what we found out. Adopting the EV lifestyle isn't an overnight journey Switching from Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) to EV is as simple as selling the old vehicles and buying brand new EVs right? Except, that isn't really the case as we found out from Lawrence. Do you remember how buying your first car and stepping into car ownership was a lifestyle change that affected your daily life? According to Lawrence, the switch to EVs is a substantial lifestyle change as well. Like Hong Seh, Ebenezer Group is a first mover in electrification, with the latter opting to give EVs a try back in August 2020 when the company purchased three MG EV cars for its leaders and management staff. Lawrence believes that before the company switch to EVs for its fleet, the management should have a first-hand experience, understand the nuances of an EV lifestyle and make an informed decision on electrification. As the team quickly realised, the limited EV charging infrastructure meant that they had to be familiar with the available charging locations. After the initial experience, the company decided to install their own chargers to facilitate the charging of its EVs while enjoying lower charging rates. While the switch to EV wasn't entirely hiccup-free Lawrence noticed that the benefits far outweigh the cons - especially when it comes down to dollars and cents. In a highly simplified example, Lawrence mentioned that the petrol cost for the ICE management vehicles were close to $1,000 a month per car, meanwhile charging the EVs costs in the ballpark of $200 a month. This has resulted in savings of almost $10,000 a year - easily outshadowing the depreciation of the car. Going green doesn't simply save you money, it makes you more! "People think that going green is about saving money, but actually, going green makes you money," with his experience on going green, Lawrence believes that going green will result in an increase in profits. Indeed, the amount of savings from switching to EV is so substantial that it could simply be thought of as an increase in earnings. Like all investments, going green is a business activity that will result in making you money. Apart from Ebenezer's logistics operations, Lawrence also deals with solar panels, and is hence familiar with the green industry as a whole. And he told us that with the lowering costs and improvements in efficiency, the Return on Investment for a typical solar energy setup is just four years. By powering its chargers with solar energy, Ebenezer went one step further in going green. At the same time, this decision has managed to help the company to make more money. Electrification of your fleet is simple and easy with Hong Seh Evolution Gone are the times where chargers and suitable EVs for your business are few and far between. Unlike when Ebenezer first started, the industry has come a long way, and it is all thanks to companies like Hong Seh that are committed to bringing in these green vehicles.

  2. Opting for an EV for commercial use is not only environmentally friendly, but cost effective as well - start your journey with Hong Seh Evolution. It wasn't too long ago when Electric Vehicles (EV) were still fresh on the market - back then range wasn't confidence inspiring, charging facilities aren't as accessible and these cars really don't make much sense. These days, EV chargers can be found all over Singapore, in petrol kiosks, HDB carparks, shopping malls and offices. Most EVs will also do well over 200km in a single charge, and can be charged up pretty quickly with the appropriate chargers. What this means, is that EVs make a lot more sense and are much easier to live with, and as a result, business owners have much to gain from switching over to EVs for their fleets. Opting for an EV benefits more than just the environment EVs are known to be good for the environment as they do not have an internal combustion engine that emits noxious fumes through a tailpipe. But the benefits aren't simply limited to saving the earth - the same exhaust fumes are uncomfortable and unhealthy for humans as well. This is especially apparent when it comes to commercial vehicles, where you'll often leave the engine running as you load up cargoes to be more efficient on the go. With an EV, you won't have to worry about any harmful and unpleasant exhaust fumes. You can just leave the vehicle running with air-con on to keep the cabin cool, you can even take a short break in comfort in the carpark if you want. And they aren't only clean and green. Powered by electric motors, EVs are able to produce plenty of torque and will do so instantly - this is especially handy for the type of use that commercial vehicles sees. EVs will help your business to save on costs No matter what your company does, cost savings will surely be desirable, and EVs is one way to achieve it. Unlike cars powered by conventional engines, EVs have lesser wear and tear components - you don't have to worry about stuff like air filters, spark plugs or engine oil, and with regenerative braking, your brake pads will also last longer! This results in a simpler maintenance routine that will incur lower costs in the long run. However, the largest cost savings that EVs offer comes from the lower cost of charging when compared to the cost of petrol or diesel. Although EVs can cost a little more than its internal combustion engine counterparts, you will be able to recoup your investment the more you utilise an EV - perfect in commercial use where the car will see plenty of mileage. If you can install chargers in your own facility, you will be able to keep your EVs charged and ready at an even more cost-effective rate. In line with the government's direction to go green, the Commercial Vehicle Emissions Scheme (CVES) has been introduced recently to promote the adoption of eco-friendly commercial vehicles. As such, each vehicle that complies with the requirements of CVES band A will be entitled to an incentive of $15,000, further sweetening the switch to EVs for commercial use. Modernise your fleet with DFSK Don't wait! Start your cost-saving journey now by switching your fleet to the EVs now. Hong Seh Evolution Pte Ltd is committed to provide you with innovative EVs from DFSK to modernise your business for maximal cost savings and efficiency. With the DFSK EC35 van, EC31 lorry and EC31 refrigerated trucks, to choose from, you can be sure to find something that fits your company's needs.

  3. Would appreciate recommendations on models that are reliable and have reasonable service costs. Looking at those that are 7 years old or more or even COE renewal type. Any particular models to check out? Not sure if the kangos are ok or I should stick to Japanese brands. Thanks.
  4. How easy is it to get a motorcycle license? Whoever’s in charge might want to up the difficulty if this rider was able to pass. What happened? On 17 April yesterday, a motorcyclist and their passenger hit a Nissan NV350 while changing lanes on the Pan-Island Expressway. Yeah, ‘big whoop’, I hear you say, but what gets me is how avoidable this was. Another biker was able to continue in that same lane with no issues. You could argue it’s that other biker’s fault, since they passed them right before they were about to change lanes. But they were still facing the road and so could see that this biker was going way faster than them. There was also enough distance to see that there was plenty of time to slow down. However, if you look at the Nissan, notice how it accelerated before slowing down as well. Yet even once it slowed down, there’s a solid two seconds before our main biker hit the Nissan with no signs of braking. Regardless of external factors, bro does not know what braking is. As a result, both rider and pillion took a rough fall. Both of them were not wearing riding gear and rolled a couple times. Yikes. Online chatter For some reason, Facebook users seem to have a knack with involving women despite how they may have zero influence on the situation. As seen with the female pillion rider. No comment on that… Others criticised the rider for not paying attention, which put not only his life at risk but also his passenger’s. ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  5. A van hit a child in a baby stroller today at a carpark in Woodlands St 32, resulting in the death of the child and injuries for their brother and mother. What happened? It is believed that the mother was beside the red taxi shown in the video, pushing the stroller out of the carpark. A loud bang was heard when the van hit the stroller, and onlookers rushed to help. An ambulance was called immediately but to no avail as the child had already passed away. The mother was seen screaming and crying in despair. The child’s brother was in a similarly distraught state, jumping up and down helplessly. Facebook users gave the family their condolences and prayers. ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  6. TL;DR - A van slammed into a double decker bus on the expressway on a wet wet night. The vehicle skidded from the first to the third lane and got T-boned by an oncoming double-decker bus. At its most basic, a 'drift' is movement of a car along some direction other than its steered trajectory, involving a slip angle at one or both axles. Watch this 44-second clip to see how the van swerved from lane 1 to lane 3. What happened? Rainy weather usually sees more accidents due to the roads being slippery and vehicles can skid a lot easier. The van driver was speeding on lane 1 when s/he lost control of the vehicle and skidded, crashing into a double decker SBS Transit bus. It doesn’t take much IQ to know that rain = wet = slippery = dangerous. The van driver could’ve caused the lives of many, especially if there were commuters on the bus. Online Chatter Why is the van even on lane 1 a.k.a the fast lane when the other lanes are pretty clear? Perhaps s/he would’ve gotten less hate if it was on lane 2 since such vehicles have a road speed limit of 70km/h. And FYI, 70km/h is not meant to be on the fast lane! Tips for all drivers If it is raining cats and dogs, it is important to slow down, use your wipers and keep to the middle lane - side lanes always experience the most water splash! Oh, also make sure your car is in good condition to weather the storm - make sure your tires are not ‘botak’! ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  7. It is not everyday that you see a van smash into a fence and consequently flip over into the opposing lane after a drift. Watch this 14 second video and try not to chuckle: Context as to what happened before the video is unclear, but it seems that the van vehicle lost control of his van, failing to control the drift. He then proceeds to crash into the road divider fence and break into the opposing lane, almost causing another accident with an oncoming car. As you can see in this screenshot, the van is at an unrecoverable angle of drift. We can only imagine how freaked out the van driver must be. We also speculate that he might have tried to avoid another car, thus having to swerve his vehicle so violently. The van then lands on its side, almost hitting an oncoming vehicle. Luckily, the driver seems to not have been seriously injured as he was seen moving in the van even after flipping over. A netizen states that vans always drive quickly, but do not have the ability to take corners. This is a true statement that we feel van drivers should be wary of, especially when most of them do not change tyres regularly, resulting in low levels of grip. Another netizen says that van and lorry drivers are increasingly using the fast lanes on highways. He thinks that the traffic police has to up their game in keeping a lookout for such drivers, since they will most likely exceed their 60km/h to 70km/h speed limit there. This comment got us thinking. Maybe Singapore should implement stronger fences to prevent such accidents from happening? Let this video be a reminder to us not to make rash decisions on the road, and to slow down if we are unaware of the situation at bay. Also, we should never overestimate the abilities of the vehicle we are driving, regardless of whether it is a car or van. ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  8. It is not every day you get to see the legendary Mercedes G63 in Singapore. And it is even rarer to see one involved in an accident. Watch it here: What Happened? A Mercedes G63 and a Volkswagen Transporter 'chiong-ed' along Yishun Ave 8 upon the red traffic light signal turning green. Its 4.0-Litre Bi-Turbocharged V8 engine and all-wheel-drive drivetrain instantly picked up speed. Directly behind the G-wagon was the Volkswagen Transporter. Although the specs of the Volkswagen Transporter is not anywhere near the G-wagon, it is still pretty decent (2.0-Litre, 4-cylinder turbocharged paired to a 7-speed DCT transmission). And surprisingly, the Volkswagen Transporter was hot on the G-wagon's heels (Yes, I know. The G63 driver probably did not step hard on the accelerator). As they approached a red light, the G63 driver could not react in time and slammed hard into a stationary Honda Vezel. The impact was forceful enough to push the Honda SUV across the stop line. Some debris were also scattered across the road due to the accident. And yes. Both cars' repair costs are just going to be loose change to the G-wagon driver. Netizens' Comments Its not about the equipment, its about the driver🙂 This is prove that money can't buy skills! Speeding in a G63 is not satki anymore. There's a time and place for everything. ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news, and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community. Join us today!
  9. They say that Singaporeans have a unique culture and identity, which can be attributed to our variety of local cuisines and our multi-racial society. I say we are truly unique by the manner we talk. Watch this video to see the most Singaporean style argument between two motorists: What Happened? This pointless incident occurred at an unknown HDB carpark involving the cam car and a blacked-out van. The cam car was driving towards the end of a one-way direction carpark, where the driver was supposed to give way to oncoming vehicles before "re-entering" the carpark again. Just as the cam car was about to turn right, a blacked-out van emerged from the carpark entrance. As a result, the cam car performed an e-brake and exclaimed 'SMLJ?' before venting his frustration by honking at the van. The van driver then proceeded to stop in front of the cam car before opening the driver's side door. The van driver then made a gesture to ask why he was honked. The argument between both parties went as such: NGL, this encounter is about the most Singaporean it will ever get! An Avoidable Exchange TBH, the honking action of the cam car was genuinely uncalled for. I see it as an intentional provocation to spite the van driver and vent his frustrations after the cam car was forced to give way to the van. What do you think? Which party do you think is at fault?

  10. It is only the start of the new year, but I think we got a winner for the weirdest sighting of 2022 already. Watch the video here: What Happened? This sighting occurred along the Ayer Rajah Expressway (AYE), in the wee hours of the night. The witness who recorded the video said he was driving along the AYE when he almost rear-ended the abandoned, stationary van. He proceeded to stop his vehicle behind the stationary van to inspect and offer help (supposedly) to the van driver. Upon inspection, the van was found to have sustained significant damages to the driver's door and the windshield, which deployed its airbags. What was most puzzling was that the van driver was nowhere to be found, and the van's engine was still running! Furthermore, there was no sign of collision between the van and another vehicle. How strange... What It Looks Like NGL, this looks as though an alien spaceship came down to abduct the van driver. Heck. It even looks as though the van driver faded into dust from Thanos' snap. What do you think happened?

  11. This has got to be one of the most puzzling incidents I have ever witnessed. Watch it for yourself below: What Happened? This incident happened along Hougang Ave 4. From the footage, a van is seen turning out from an HDB carpark when suddenly its door swings open and a man in red drops face-first onto the road. After the fall, the man remains unconscious throughout the rest of the video. It is not known what has caused the man to fall from the moving van. However, it was certain that he was not wearing his seatbelt securely. NGL, this incident reminds me of the introduction to Mr Bean. Regardless, I hope the man is fine and here's to wishing him a speedy recovery!🙏 Netizens' Comments You just had to... What if...this was what actually happened?😯 Very observant!

  12. <The Suzuki Jimny Fuses With The Suzuki Every To Make The Cutest Overland Kei Car The custom Jimry is a Jimny with a sleeper compartment. Kind of. Photo: T-Style A tuner in Yokohama, Japan combined the looks and off-road capability of the Suzuki Jimny with the passenger capacity and space efficiency of the Suzuki Every. The combination producing what T-Style Design calls the Suzuki Jimry, an overland kei car that may not have the off-road chops of the Jimny, but certainly has the attitude. This is probably as close as we’ll get to a Jimny with sliding van doors and I love it. The Jimry is built using the Suzuki Every as a base according to Autocosmos, but it has some modifications to its suspension that make it more trail worthy. Photo: T-Style The stock Suzuki Every sits almost 6 inches off the ground, and the Jimry mods raise it by 1.5 inches for a total of 7.5 inches of ground clearance. The stock 13-inch tires are replaced by 14- or 15-inch tires, depending on the build. Some Jimry builds are 4WD, but not all. And others get even more ground clearance, up to four inches over stock. The Jimry keeps the Every’s 660cc three-cylinder engine to comply with Kei car regulations. That engine makes about 63 horespower and 70 lb-ft of torque. Many of the conversions from TSD come with a five-speed manual transmission, but some get an automatic gearbox. Other gear includes a top box and rooftop tent, along with custom mudguards and bumpers that add to the Jimny look. Of course, it wouldn’t be complete without the Jimny grille. The grille sits below what looks like the tiniest “hood” ever, but since the Suzuki Every is a cabover design, the hood is not covering an engine. And I’m unsure if it’s the stocky dimensions or stand-offish front end but I’m getting Hummer H2 vibes. Even then, I still can’t help but love all the Jimry builds. Photo: T-Style Photo: T-Style The mods keep going into the interior, which has slide-out storage compartments beneath a modular bed. The bed sits atop the rear seats when these are folded and it takes up the entire rear portion of the cabin. That’s only in one of the Jimry builds advertised by TSD, and it looks like the mods are made to suit the owner. Prices for the Jimry range from $21,725 to $22,337 or so. That’s for whole Jimry builds. Autocosmos reports that the modifications alone start at around $2,178. Photo: T-Style Photo: T-Style Photo: T-Style Photo: T-Style Photo: T-Style>
  13. SINGAPORE: When she saw that a van driver did not stop at a zebra crossing she was standing at, a woman followed him to the car park and confronted him before placing her hands on his windscreen. The man started his engine and inched his vehicle forward, coming into contact with her three times even though she shouted at him to stop. Mazlan Ujod, 46, was sentenced to a month's jail and banned from driving for a year on Wednesday (Oct 27). He pleaded guilty to one charge of causing hurt by a rash act endangering personal safety. The court heard that the victim was about to cross a zebra crossing in Jurong West at 9.50pm on Apr 6, 2019, when she saw the accused driving his van. As he was approaching the crossing, she did not cross, but noted that he did not stop at the zebra crossing. Instead, he drove into a car park near 492 Jurong West Street 41. The victim followed the vehicle as she wanted to confront the driver and check if he was drunk. When confronted, Mazlan said he had not seen her as it was dark and that he was not intoxicated. The woman told him to wait for the police to arrive, but Mazlan said he was in a rush and boarded his van. As the woman did not want Mazlan to leave, she stood in front of his van and placed both hands on the windscreen, the prosecutor said. Mazlan started his engine and inched it forward, with his van coming into contact with the woman's thigh. The victim moved back, and Mazlan inched his van forward once more and made contact with her again. The victim shouted at Mazlan, asking him to stop hitting her with his van. Eventually, after hitting the victim again with his vehicle, Mazlan managed to drive away. The police arrived only after Mazlan had left. The victim was taken to hospital for treatment. As the pain in her leg did not subside, she returned a few days later and was warded for several days. She was diagnosed with a knee contusion and given hospitalisation leave. Mazlan's lawyer asked for leniency, saying her client had no previous convictions. He is the sole breadwinner of his family and a lengthy imprisonment would cause him to lose his job, she said. The prosecutor said Mazlan was trying to shift the blame to the victim, and that this shows a lack of remorse. However, she did not seek a compensation order as she noted there was a "possibility of a civil suit". For causing hurt by a rash act endangering personal safety, Mazlan could have been jailed up to a year and fined up to S$5,000.

  15. You can add this to the list of weird sightings on Singapore's expressways, including reversing on an expressway and riding a motorcycle in the nude. Watch the video to find out what happened: This incident occurred on the Seletar Expressway (SLE). What happened? When this mishap took place, the cam car was behind a white Subaru Forester, cruising on lane 1 of the expressway. It was a pleasant and smooth drive until the Subaru Forester drove over the tyre, sending it flying directly towards the cam car and smashes right onto the cam car's bonnet. *That Subbie certainly do be flexing its SUV capability* Moments later, the cam car skilfully filters from lane 1 to the left shoulder of the expressway after spotting someone who seems to be looking for something underneath his van 🤔 Netizens' comments That would be disastrous. Also, it was lucky that the tyre did not smash into the cam car's windshield. It could end up as an accidental PR publicity for Subaru, who knows? It's all fun and games until someone gets hurt... On a side note... In such a situation, what are the possible actions cam car could take against the culprit? Would insurance coverage be applicable? --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

  16. A taxi driver falls victim to a van driver's road rage when he obstructs the path of the van driver. There are two videos of the incident. 1. Taxi driver's POV 2. Passenger of the taxi's POV The taxi driver's POV The clip starts with the taxi driver moving off after dropping a passenger at Loyang Rise. As there are numerous cars parked along the lane and obstructing his right of way, he decides to travel on the opposing lane. He notices a black van from afar and stops his vehicle, hoping that the van driver will let him pass before moving on. However, the van proceeds to move forward and blocks the taxi's path. WhatsApp Video 2021-07-28 at 9.30.06 AM.mp4 The passenger's POV Now, let's have a look at the passenger's perspective. We can hear the taxi driver honking at the van as the van intentionally moves forward despite the taxi obstructing its path. The van driver honks back in retaliation before hurling vulgarities and shouting at the taxi driver. This left the taxi with no choice but to reverse and angle his car slightly towards a small gap in the middle of the road to let the van pass. The passenger has also stated that the driver kept trying to intimidate the taxi uncle while he tried to give way to him. Before the taxi driver could properly reverse and adjust the angle of his car, the van impatiently tried to go around the vehicle and ended up hitting the taxi's side mirror. The taxi driver sounds this off to the van driver only to be answered with a string of vulgarities yet again. Netizens' reactions Even if the van has the right of way, the driver's behaviour was abysmal and disgusting to watch. There is no need for aggressive remarks while the other party is trying to let him pass. --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

  17. https://mothership.sg/2019/08/singapore-couple-travel-europe-van/ Traveling to Europe in a van. I wonder if they are bringing spares, engine oil, spare parts etc etc etc. While a jap van is easy to service in this part of asia, it may not be common where they are going.
  18. Anyone got stuck on PIE last evening for more than an hour and half? A few of us in the team did so, no thanks to someone who swerved out at the last minute, causing an accident that required a huge cleaning-up effort from the authorities. Thanks to SG Road Vigilante, we now know what caused the accident which happened at PIE's Steven Road exit in the direction of Jurong, at 630pm. While the accident itself didn't cause any serious injury, it is obvious that the Mazda 3 driver was at fault. According to the comments online, it does look like he or she was trying to avoid a frontal collision in his/her own lane by swerving into lane 2 but that unfortunately meant that the 2 motorcyclists that were lane-spliting, had to fall due to such a move. Kudos to both the tipper truck and the Malaysian van for being reactive to what was happening in front of them!

  20. And it's designed for space travel. Sporty six-seater anyone? Alright alright, not quite. The Porsche vision “Renndienst”, is the latest in a series of concept cars recently revealed by Porsche, and designed as a "space shuttle" with exciting proportions. With cabin space for up to six persons, Porsche must presumably be targeting the family space tourism sector, soon to get off the ground once travel restrictions are lifted, of course. With an all-electric drive located in the underbody, Porsche sportiness is also retained thanks to a centrally located driver's seat. Where would you take your family to in something like this? Of course, if roofless two-seaters are your thing, there's also this Porsche Vision Spyder, inspired by the 550-1500 RS Spyder from 1954. The Porsche Vision Spyder. Designed to "further develop the design identity of Porsche and provide a pool of ideas for future details," the concept car is described as sporting a spartan, puristic cockpit. Characteristic radiator grilles over the mid engine, red graphic elements and the suggested fins at the rear add the final exterior touches to this open top. Next special edition 718 previewed, we rekon.
  21. A mobile phone has been hurt as a result of this unfortunate accident between a van and a pedestrian along Sophia Road heading towards Wilkie Road on 11th of September. As we can see from this video posted onStomp and ROAD.sg, the driver of this Nissan van seemed to be distracted and was not paying attention to where he was heading, knocking a poor pedestrian hard from the back. Clearly, the van driver is at fault here... According to the police, the 40-year old pedestrian was conscious when conveyed to Raffles Hospital. He could be seen clutching his head as the video was about the end. We hope all is well for him. And his phone! 52576251_174470654273041_5621453545594435322_n.mp4
  22. A van has been injured in this accident due to a cyclist's silly carelessness. Jokes aside, this is quite an unfortunate incident whereby a cyclist smashed into the back of a Toyota Hiace van which was stationary along one of Old Airport Road's traffic junction. The accident happened in the wee hours of the morning, with the cyclist apparently beating a red light at the previous junction as traffic was light. With the need to go as fast possible, he likely chose keep his gaze low on the road to be as aerodynamic as possible without realising that the van that he was about to crash into had actually stopped at the upcoming traffic junction. Thankfully, the cyclist survived but he sure looked quite messed up. We hope he recovers well! P.S. SG Road Vigilante's video thumbnail might be slightly disturbing for some. Viewer discretion advised!
  23. The last few days have been relatively peaceful for our roads until this particular accident that was post by SG Road Vigilante caught our attention. With the accident happening a couple of weeks ago (17 July), this is not the latest news but it is one of the most recent videos that surfaced online. What made us sit up and take notice is how the Toyota Hiace driver lost control of his van. To zoom past the camera car on the left at that speed must have meant that the Hiace driver lost it way before the Steven Road exit on PIE towards Jurong. He then went across 3 lanes at approximately 80km/h before smashing into the center barriers and coming to a stop in the middle of the highway. What do you guys think happened? Let us know in the comment box below!
  24. While some of us who are working from home can stay in bed longer in this cool weather, others who have to go into the office had to brave the thunderstorm this morning (23 June 2020). Certain parts of Singapore experienced flash floods and there were plenty of videos and photos being shared around. For those who hasn't seen any of those, here are some of the 'highlights' from SG Road Vigilante and other sources. The Tanah Merah/Bedok area seemed to have had it especially bad. We were impressed most of the traffic still continued on their way despite the flood water at Upper Changi Rd. It is believed that it gotten deeper and a few cars ended up stranded soon after. af509655-736f-4915-b2d6-be4f95587fd7.MP4 Jurong East also had some issues with the flash flood too.
