‘Ah Lian’ vs auntie clash in MRT quarrel

This went viral in Singapore - grin Fwah, fierce! A video of a young girl arguing with a middle-aged auntie over an MRT seat is going viral and it has all the makings of a truly "local production" -- spectacular Singlish, fashionably trendy Ah Lian, grumpy old auntie and of course, the obligatory "why you stare at me". First posted on STOMP, the 4-minute long video shows how what appears to be a minor disagreement blow up into a full-scale shouting match complete with Singlish and expletives -- all this in full view of amused commuters on a busy train. As of Wednesday afternoon, the original video on STOMP has over 70, 000 views. It's not clear how the argument started but it appears to be over an MRT seat reserved for the elderly and handicapped. Although it appears the young woman had already given up her seat, the older woman begins to lecture her over her bad manners, saying she "had to ask for the seat" and that the woman was "most probably coming from China." The younger woman initially tries to ignore the scolding by playing with her phone but when the auntie decides to take a photo of her to "show to the public", she finally shoots back a "death stare" and replies with "I let you sit, you still say so much for what?" As the auntie tries to take her photo again, she retorts with an outstretched finger, "You must take photo for f***!" to which the auntie replies "why you stare at me?!". The shouting match eventually ends when the young woman gets off at the next stop after Tanjong Pagar MRT, leaving the embarrassed auntie by her lonesome self. Now, who says MRT rides in Singapore are without (uniquely Singapore) drama? Source: yahoo Shin Min Daily News article on the Ah Lian vs Auntie Fight here!

Singapore Juice Bar Successfully Trolls Google.
So Google is pretty neat. I mean, it's safe to say it's changed the world and how we live in it. If we have a question about virtually anything, we go to Google. When we forget a phone number, want to listen to our favorite song, or find more information about the presidential candidates, we've got it. We've also got its apps, most famously Google Maps. Without it, I would probably be forever lost. With it, I can Google Earth my childhood home to make sure it still exists. Google Maps is super stalkery in just about the best way possible, and no one has caught onto this better than Singapore-based juice bar, Daily Juice. So, if you pull up Daily Juice on Google Map's street view, at first, it's a little unassuming. So you zoom in closer, and then you're like, wait - is that Barney?! Barney then invites you inside to meet his friends. (Yes, Google Maps lets you go inside. Technology is crazy, kids.) You've got Yoda serving up some juice to a Stormtrooper while their friend, Mr. Gingerbread Man, looks on. And then he goes to join Mr. Gator, Homer Simpson, Bugs Bunny, Darth Maul, and Iron Man, who is up to some curious PDA with the aforementioned Barney. So next time you're hanging out with a friend and feeling like you need a good conversation starter, have them look up Daily Juice in Singapore and wait. You'll both probably get a good laugh out of it. Have you guys seen any other examples of people messing with Google's street view feature? Would seeing a company do this make you want to go there even more?
Travel Singapore: 6 Dishes You Have to Try!
I just got back from Singapore which was basically just me eating everything in sight for 4 days straight. Here are 6 things I had a loved, but keep in mind there are a billion other things you have to try there as well! (Not listed: chili craaaaaaaaaaab!!!!!!) Pictured above: Teh O Limau (black tea with lime!) 1. Murtabak Murtabak is a super tasty dish from the Middle East that I could probably eat every day. You can get nearly any filling you want (we chose one Chicken and one sardine) and it will be wrapped up in a delicious bread similar to na'an or paratha. We got curry to dip it in and it tasted fantastic! 2. Fish Ball Soup For the unadventurous or those who avoid spice, this fish ball soup is perfect. If you find that traveling gave you an upset stomach, this simple broth with some onion, noodles, and a few balls made from fish will have you feeling better in no time. Serious comfort food. 3. Carrot Cake Carrot cake is my favorite thing on this earth. Rather than carrots, it is made using radish that has been pounded into a soft almost noodle. Think gnocchi, but with radish! It's then fried up with egg and chilis, then (if you get black carrot cake) tossed around in some soy sauce. It's DELICIOUS. 4. BBQ Sting Ray The dish to the left is bbq string ray, the first thing I ever ate in Singapore. Its a fishy taste covered in a really awesome chili sauce. Once I got the fact that it was sting ray out of my mind, it tasted just like any other fish I love eating! 5. Popiah See that egg roll looking thing? That's popiah. At first I expected something like the Filipino dish lumpia, but it is so much sweeter than that. These spring rolls are common in Singapore, Taiwan, and Malaysia and are filled with fresh veggies. You can get them spicier, but they'll always have a distinctly sweet taste to it. 6. Kaya Toast (with Teh O) Made from a mixture of coconut and egg (which I just found out last week, after years of eating kaya...) Kaya jam is one of the yummiest things you can spread on toast. Traditional kaya toast has kaya and a few thick slices of butter sandwiched between two freshly toasted slices of bread. Usually its also served with soft boiled eggs which you can add soy sauce to. Get your kaya toast with some kopi or teh o (black coffee or black tea) to start your day right! I also tried Salted Egg Yolk Croissant, since salted egg yolk ANYTHING is a huge deal in Singapore right now. And to be honest, I really didn't like it. It tasted like what happens when you make icing and add too much powdered sugar. It was really dry and didn't even taste like salt or egg at all. Maybe it's not supposed to and I'm missing the point, but I wasn't a fan :/ Have you ever had Singaporean food? What's your favorite?!
Falling in Love With Singapore
Do any of you have a place that you've never visited, but you know you're meant to be there?! Well, for me, it was always Singapore. My aunt was born in Malaysia, and she and my uncle lived in Singapore for almost 20 years! My grammy always told me stories of traveling there for the wedding or just to visit and it sounded magical! In college, I inexplicably became friends with a ton of incredible, insane, amazing Singaporean girls and I finally had a chance to visit them in their home town! Myself and two other friends stayed in a gorgeous AirBnB (pictured above) with a British family (and their dog!) and spent four days there eating, exploring, and discovering what humidity truly is. Some places you should definitely check out: 1. Chinatown - There are tons of shops and eateries all around this area and the architecture is really cool! Here you can find cafes that serve drinks the old fashioned way - in a REALLY thick cup so the liquid never cools. (Old men often pour the drink into the saucer and drink from that rather than drink the super hot coffee) Also try out a Singaporean specialty which is half tea, half coffee! 2. ALL THE FOOD COURTS Singapore is famous for their food courts, which are just huge open-air markets with a ton of stalls offering every kind of food you can imagine. Most are open 24 hours and my friends and I were lucky to have stayed near one of the most famous ones - Newton Food Centre! Carrot cake is actually a radish and soy sauce dish that is INCREDIBLE. BBQ Stingray is delicious and you MUST try it. Banana prata is like the best banana pancake you will ever have in your entire life. Ice Kachang is a dessert, yes there is corn and beans in it ;D Check out all the colorful food below: You should also really take advantage of the heat and use it as an excuse to eat ice cream with every meal...cause I sure as hell did! 3. Orchard Eats Other foods you should try are rainbow dim sum near Orchard station and steam boat which is similar to shabu shabu! 4. The Flyer My friends were nice enough to get us discounts for the Singapore Flyer which was awesome! I wouldn't recommend paying full fare for it unless you really like ferris wheels, but it gave us an incredible view of the city! 5. And of course definitely visit the Gardens By The Bay! It was really incredible and you could walk through the Marina Bay hotel (where we took a much needed iced coffee break) Singapore is definitely a foodies paradise and even though I've never experienced humidity like that (even in Hong Kong!) it was worth every second!
