  2. A gang of thieves in India returned more than a dozen idols they stole from a 300-year-old temple after claiming to have been haunted by nightmares since the theft. The thieves had stolen 16 idols on 9 May from the Balaji Temple in the most populous Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. However, six days later, they returned 14 of the stolen statues in a sack near the house of the temple’s priest in Chitrakoot district, the police said. “They also left behind a confession letter which said they were returning the idols because they were having scary dreams,” police inspector Rajiv Singh told AFP. According to the police the thieves wrote: “We have not been able to sleep, eat and live peacefully. We are fed up with the scary dreams and are returning your valuables.” The idols, estimated to worth in millions, have been identified by the priest and deposited in the police station. Of the 16 stolen statues, one was made of ‘ashtadhatu’- an alloy of eight metals- weighing about 5kg. Three idols were made of copper and weighed 10 kg while four idols of brass weighed around 15 kg, said the complaint. All the idols were adorned with silver ornaments, the priest told the police. Authorities have lodged a case of theft against unidentified persons under section 380 of the Indian Penal Code and formed two teams to arrest the accused.
  3. Foodpanda is investigating an incident where a delivery rider was caught walking away with a pair of Crocs he allegedly took from outside a condominium unit. The unit's resident, Ms Cruz and her father, the owner of the Crocs, shared footage of the incident on Facebook but have since removed their posts. According to the timestamp on the video, the rider was seen dropping off an order on Tuesday (May 17) at about 12.09pm. The video did not show the man picking up the Crocs but he was seen holding them in his right hand while walking away. He was also not wearing Foodpanda's trademark pink uniform. The pair of Crocs the delivery rider allegedly took was adorned with several Jibbitz charms. According to the Crocs website, the average price for a pair of men's clogs is $69.95. A pack of five Jibbitz charms costs $19.95. In response to a Stomp query, a Foodpanda spokesman said their team is in contact with Ms Cruz and are currently investigating the situation. "Foodpanda does not condone any form of misconduct, and any rider who is found to have conducted themselves in an unprofessional manner will be dealt with accordingly, including potential blacklist."

    https://sg.style.yahoo.com/where-best-flakiest-curry-puffs-090500697.html Most Singaporeans are familiar with the curry puff, a blistered golden-brown purse stuffed with spicy fillings of potato, fish or eggs — simple, yet heartwarming. And while there’s plenty to be found around the island, here’s where you’ll find the best curry puffs in Singapore. Available all-day round, this bite-sized treat is convenient as a quick snack for at a small price. While it has become a part of Singapore’s food identity, it is also reflective of global cultural influences from the colonial past. The curry puff’s origins could be traced to Spanish empanadas or the British Cornish pastries. Despite the resemblance, the execution is largely different with local touches with spices and pastry. Since then, the curry puff has gone through several evolutions. The puff has become multi-racial — there’s the Malay ‘epok epok,’ the Indian ‘karipap’ as well as the Chinese ‘curry puff’ that most are familiar with thanks to snack food chains. With just a dollar, Singaporeans can easily get a snapshot of the country’s diverse culinary landscape. The little golden package of goodness now also sees more modern fillings — think durian, yam or chilli crab — but the humble potato-and-egg combo is still beloved by all.

While the puffs are thin, they are stuffed to the brim with fillings. The curry chicken, for instance, has generous servings of diced chicken and hard-boiled egg within. The mother-daughter team have stuck to the same old recipe for its classic curry chicken, otah and sardine puffs. But over the years, Soon Soon Huat has introduced some ‘modern’ creations like custard and durian.

Lee Meng Li and Wu Jing Hua, the couple running the humble hawker stall, make only about 500 puffs daily, and fries them fresh in a large wok throughout the day, so diners are always guaranteed a piping hot treat to enjoy for breakfast or afternoon tea. The fillings are simple, but flavourful all the same. Curried potatoes and sardines with egg are often sold out, but newer creations like black pepper chicken and yam are proving to be as popular too.

That’s because AMK Curry Puff is set-up by one of the Tip Top’s shareholders, holding on to the traditional ways of making the treat. The stall is run by former Tip Top employees who continues to fold and stuff every curry puff by hand. There’s only one filling available here, the curry chicken with hard-boiled egg — not too spicy, but still very satisfying.

The hawker stall continues to use an old family recipe for its nostalgic puffs, from its dough to fillings. The bite-sized puffs tend to be crispier and not as buttery and are available with three different fillings: spicy potato, sardine with onions or egg — all for less than a dollar.

To say the fillings are viscous and is lavish in its serving is putting it lightly: you’ll probably get more of the lightly spiced, aromatic curried potatoes than the actual puff pastry with each bite. These curry puffs are dangerously additive, so be sure to order a couple more when you’re here. (Image credit: @thedeadcockroach via Instagram) Address 448 Clementi Ave 3, #01-31, Singapore 120448

  8. SINGAPORE - Travellers flying out of Changi Airport will no longer have to present their passports or boarding passes when clearing immigration, after an initiative to use biometrics for verification is rolled out later this year. Senior Minister Teo Chee Hean on Tuesday (May 17) said: "We are working on an initiative where departing passengers at Changi need only present their biometrics for verification at the various departure touchpoints, without having to present any physical identity or travel documents." This will not only enhance user experience but also contribute to the new precautions needed for safe and healthy flying post-pandemic, he said during a closed-door dialogue at the Changi Aviation Summit. The Straits Times understands that the initiative will be rolled out progressively this year. A transcript of Mr Teo's speech was published on the Prime Minister's Office's website on Wednesday. The Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) had previously said that in future, Singapore residents leaving or arriving at Changi will be able to clear immigration without needing to present their passports. Instead, their identities will be verified using iris and facial biometrics as they walk through clearance gates. Earlier this month, ICA also said foreign travellers who have enrolled their facial and iris biometrics on their first visit to Singapore will be able to get automated immigration clearance on subsequent trips here, starting from the second half of this year. This is in line with the agency's goals to make automated clearance a norm for all travellers from 2023. Mr Teo, who is also Coordinating Minister for National Security, on Tuesday said the aviation sector should take the chance to improve its service levels and transform the customer experience. Technology and digitalisation are key to this, he added. At the same time, cyber security must be strengthened to protect customer data and ensure aviation systems are resilient, especially since these are often interlinked, he said. Securing passenger reservation and air traffic control systems, for example, has to be a collective responsibility, the minister added. "Any system is only as secure as the weakest link." Another priority is aviation safety, as the disruptions caused by the Covid-19 pandemic have introduced risks, both old and new, notably in the upkeep of aircraft and maintaining the competencies of air traffic controllers and pilots, Mr Teo said. On its part, Singapore released its first National Aviation Safety Plan last month, which sets out 50 actions that Singapore's aviation industry will take over the next three years. Other countries such as India, France and Australia have released similar plans. More On This Topic Foreign travellers with biometrics registered in S'pore can get automated immigration clearance Covid-19: Eye and face scans part of touch-free travel at Changi Airport Mr Teo also reiterated the sector's important role in combating climate change and reducing carbon emissions. "The data we have, reinforced by the images we see, and the actual experiences we encounter as we fly around the world, tell us that we need to deal with this issue of climate change urgently and decisively," he said. Travellers flying out of Singapore will not have to present their passports or boarding passes from later this year. ST PHOTO: LIM YAOHUI The aviation sector should be looking for ambitious, long-term, aspirational goals, he added. This means looking at the entire aviation chain - from more efficient aircraft, flight and ground operations to green fuels and green financing. Airlines should be encouraged to prioritise buying the most fuel-efficient fleets, Mr Teo said. Flight routes should also be optimised by improving air traffic management to significantly reduce fuel burn, emissions and costs. Singapore has already started to develop the next generation of air navigation service systems, which will be operational around the end of the 2020s, he noted. The systems will incorporate satellite-based navigation and communication technologies to increase the precision of flight paths and allow more optimal route placements and flight levels, he said. They will also enable new, cutting-edge concepts to be implemented to improve flight predictability and efficiency while reducing congestion. Coordination between air traffic management providers must also improve, Mr Teo added. "If you improve air traffic management, improve air traffic rules, reduce flight times and reduce waiting times, everybody benefits." On green fuels, he said the aviation sector will need to work closely with the energy sector to develop and scale the most viable technologies. It should also tap new green financing models to pursue various decarbonisation solutions. The twin challenges of Covid-19 and climate change present opportunities to reimagine aviation, he said. "We can transform the industry for a more resilient and sustainable future. Our customers, our shareholders and financial institutions will demand this, whether we like it or not."
  9. SINGAPORE: A teenager who was interested in explosives started looking up how to make bombs online during the COVID-19 "circuit breaker". He made two improvised pipe bombs and lit them up at East Coast Park in 2020, detonating one. No one was hurt in the incident. The youth, now 19, pleaded guilty on Thursday (May 19) to four charges of making explosives without a licence, committing a rash act with a dangerous substance likely to cause hurt or injury to others, and abetting such an act Another three charges will be considered for sentencing, which is set for June. The youth cannot be named as he was under 18 at the time of the offences and therefore protected by the Children and Young Persons Act. He is currently an aerospace engineering student in a polytechnic, and has received treatment for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and conduct disorder. The youth previously told the court that he committed the offences because he liked to do "hands-on stuff", but realised "there's a right way and a wrong way to do it ... that's why I like engineering". District Judge Kessler Soh ordered a report to assess the youth's suitability for probation, but did not rule out the option of more severe reformative training. "You may like to tinker with things, experiment, but there's a right way to do it, as you said," the judge told the youth, stressing that he and his friends could have been injured. SPARKLER AND PIPE BOMBS The youth was already interested in explosives in April 2019, when he and a friend brought improvised sparkler bombs made by him to the beach at East Coast Park. The youth asked his friend to light one of the sparkler bombs up and throw it into the sea. It detonated, emitting a series of flashes and a loud explosion. The youth recorded this and posted the video on his Instagram account. Between May and June 2020, he decided to make improvised pipe bombs and bought 200 boxes of matchsticks for this purpose. After making two such bombs, on the evening of Jun 7, 2020, he and another friend went to a skate park at East Coast Park to try setting them off. The youth brought along his two pipe bombs and several sparkler bombs. He first lit up the sparkler bombs, which produced flames but did not explode. He then picked up one of the sparkler bombs and threw it towards a grass patch. This caused the bomb to explode on contact with the ground. After that, the youth placed the two pipe bombs on the same grass patch and lit them, before running away. One of the pipe bombs detonated, causing a loud explosion and emitting sparks. He recorded this and posted the video on his Instagram account. He took home the other pipe bomb that did not detonate and disposed of it in the rubbish chute. Police were alerted to these actions on Jun 19, 2020, when they received an online report that an Instagram user was posting photos and videos of homemade explosives. They raided his home at 1am the next day and seized several materials used to make improvised pipe bombs. The penalty for making explosives without a licence is up to three years' jail and a fine of up to S$10,000. Those who commit a rash act with a dangerous substance or combustible matter likely to cause hurt or injury to another person, or abet such an act, can be jailed for up to one year, fined up to S$5,000 or both.

  10. A FIVE-ROOM flat in Henderson Road just changed hands for S$1.4 million this month, making it the priciest transaction in the HDB resale market yet. The unit in Block 96A, at 1,216 square foot (sq ft) in size, is on the 41st floor of the 48-storey block, which gives it panoramic views of the area. The lease commenced in 2019, making it only 3 years old. Lee Sze Teck, senior director of research at Huttons, said: “With construction delays due to Covid, this almost-new flat offers the opportunity for buyers to move in fast. It is also rare to have new 5-room flats in mature estates.” Amenities in the area, which include a market, hawker centre, swimming pool and shopping mall, are seen as draws, and Tiong Bahru MRT station is a 5-minute walk away; Alexandra Primary School is also within walking distance. Lee said, however, that the S$1.4 million record may well be pipped in the coming months: another 5-room flat on a higher floor in the same block has been listed at S$1.5 million. Data from the Housing & Development Board (HDB) shows that resale prices rose for the 8th consecutive quarter in Q1 2022, up 2.4 per cent from the fourth quarter of 2021, but slower than the 3.4 per cent clip notched in Q4 2021. The showing in Q1 was led by demand for larger flats. The median prices of 5-room and executive flats went up 2.6 per cent and 2.8 per cent quarter on quarter respectively. Analysts said that million-dollar HDB flat transactions also continued to give prices a boost, with 82 HDB flats sold for more than S$1 million in the previous quarter. But even as prices have grown, transaction volumes have fallen, owing to the Chinese New Year festive period as well as the limited stock of resale flats. Transactions declined to 6,934 units, down 12.7 per cent quarter on quarter and 8.5 per cent year on year; for the first time in almost two years, the figure dipped below 7,000 mark. Most of the quarter’s transactions took place in the Hougang/Punggol/Sengkang, Bukit Batok/Bukit Panjang and Sembawang/Yishun housing estates, with a large number of HDB flats in those areas having fulfilled their Minimum Occupation Period (MOP), analysts noted. Some 31,000 HDB flats are expected to reach the end of their MOP this year, and while this will give supply a lift, the fairly new flats could also command higher prices in the resale market. Still, property consultants have previously pointed out that the government will be ramping up the supply of public housing in the coming months, which may help take some of the heat off the resale market. HDB is offering some 5,300 build-to-order (BTO) flats across Bukit Merah, Jurong West, Queenstown, Toa Payoh and Yishun in May. In August, about 6,300 to 6,800 BTO flats in Ang Mo Kio, Bukit Merah, Choa Chu Kang, Jurong East, Queenstown and Woodlands will become available. https://www.businesstimes.com.sg/real-estate/5-room-hdb-flat-at-henderson-road-goes-for-s14m-in-priciest-deal-to-date
  11. KUALA LUMPUR: A bookstore owner was forced to close 15 outlets after he suffered RM2 million in losses due to rampant photocopying of academic books by university students. University Book Store Malaysia managing director Keith Thong said his company had to close their shops in university campuses due to poor response since most students took the shortcut by photocopying academic books. "In the past eight years, all our book shops in public universities and private colleges started to fold. The closure was done in stages as we tried to persevere, but as students continued scanning and photocopying academic literature, we could not sustain anymore. "The closure had nothing to do with the Covid-19 pandemic. Piracy involving books has been going on for very long," he told Berita Harian. The paper, on Wednesday, carried a front-page story on revelations by the Malaysia Reprographic Rights Centre (MARC) that local authors and publishers lost RM2.6 million every year because their copyrighted materials were reproduced without permission. Thong, who is also the Malaysian Book Sellers Association president, said the issue remains unresolved because the top management of universities have not taken action to eradicate the photocopying culture. "University leaders themselves, beginning from vice-chancellors to lecturers, have no respect for copyright protection. In fact, they themselves encourage academic work from foreign countries to be reproduced illegally. "To me, this problem will only end if the university management and the Higher Education Ministry take stern action. "The action should remind everyone that copyrighted items must be respected by all parties. "We understand that lecturers cannot force students to buy original academic books since some students allege that lecturers want to profit from the purchases. "However, if the ministry issues stern directives, then all parties are bound to follow them," he said, adding that the ministry must issue directives to ban all forms of pirated content and books reproduced without permission. If the issue prolongs, said Thong, the whole book industry will feel the impact, including authors and publishers who will reduce or eventually stop producing academic books as such efforts will be seen as a waste of time, energy, money and their expertise. "This problem has also gone beyond control because pirated works are now also sold on online platforms. "On online platforms, like Shopee and Lazada, many traders sell pirated reading materials. Although we lodge complaints, no one steps forward to take action. "The technological revolution has also led to plenty of piracy, with almost all books photocopied or their contents scanned to be sold," he said.
  12. Lee Kuan Yew Doppelganger Spotted At Coffee Shop On 18 May The term doppelganger is used to describe someone who is a spitting image of another, although they are entirely biologically unrelated. While it’s incredibly rare to meet one in person, it’s not entirely impossible, as seen in this video posted on 18 May. Source: Facebook In the clip, a man resembling the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew chows down on a meal at a coffee shop. Perhaps it’s the camera’s angle, but the uncanny resemblance left the Internet shook. Netizens make jokes about doppelganger’s sudden appearance The video, which a Facebook user shared in the Singapore Incidents group, left commenters reeling from laughter, and they spared no expense when cracking jokes. One joked that the man was the late Mr Lee’s body double. He had probably lost his job since the Minister Mentor (MM)’s passing. Source: Facebook With the latest release of the CDC vouchers, another person suggested that he might be taking the opportunity to use them to pay for his lunch. Source: Facebook Considering how eerie it must be to see the likes of someone who has passed, a Facebook user said the OP should count his lucky stars that the encounter happened in broad daylight. Source: Facebook A comment on a similar post by Facebook page Mediacock Singapore quoted the late MM Lee’s famous words that he would return from his grave if he felt something wasn’t right. Jokes aside, the doppelganger’s sudden appearance gave many people a good laugh. Lee Kuan Yew’s doppelganger gives us chance to reminisce Though it has been seven years since Mr Lee’s passing, people’s immediate recognition of his appearance, albeit via a doppelganger, shows how familiar he has become to Singaporeans of all ages. Perhaps it also implies just how big of an impact he had left on the country. We’ll likely never know the identity of his lookalike, but it sure was a treat seeing the man in such a humble setting.
  13. KUALA LUMPUR (May 19): Issues related to the 1962 Johor River Water Agreement were among the matters discussed by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob and Singapore’s Foreign Minister Dr Vivian Balakrishnan during their meeting yesterday. In his latest posting on Facebook, Ismail Sabri said he received a courtesy call from Dr Vivian at his office in Putrajaya on Wednesday. “Many issues were discussed including the 10th Malaysia-Singapore Leaders Retreat, bilateral ties, investment, tourism, cross-border issues and the Johor River Water Agreement 1962. “We also discussed the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore High-Speed Rail project, the Johor Bahru-Singapore Rapid System (RTS) Link project, as well as Malaysia-Singapore maritime and airspace issues, involving Malaysia and Singapore,” he said. He also expressed hope that the existing bilateral ties between the two countries would remain strong for mutual benefit. — Bernama https://www.theborneopost.com/2022/05/19/pm-johor-river-water-agreement-among-issues-discussed-with-singapore/?amp
