Mark Lee Video on Difference Between Ah Bengs and Hooligans

I was saddened to read about the news of what happened to the 19 years old Darren Ng Wei Jie on 31 Oct 2010 Halloween at Downtown East Pasir Ris. The young Republic Polytechnic student was attacked by another group of 5 hooligan teenagers in bright day light.

The incident was allegedly triggered when Darren Ng and his friends got into a “staring” incident with a group of hooligans in the Downtown East MacDonald’s. Eye witnesses said that the group of hooligans had followed Darren Ng and his two friends out of the fast food restaurant and set upon them at the grass patch outside. Unfortunately, the verbal fight soon turned to become physical. The hooligans were heard to have shouted some possibly secret society-related slogans after the knives fight and ran off. Darren Ng passed on 5 hours later in Changi Hospital.

Some online netizens have called those attackers Ah Beng. But I disagree. As explained by Mark Lee in the below Omy video, there is a distinct difference between Hooligans and Ah Bengs. According to his definition, Hooligans are the ones who will hang out at coffee shops when they are free and get into trouble, while the Ah Bengs only hang out at coffee shops and watch the trouble brewing.

Dim Sum Dollies “Love Your Ride” Music Video MTV Jingle

A little bit about the Dollies:

The trio began in 2002 with a gig at the Esplanade called A Single Woman. 2003 saw them perform to a sold-out crowd in the immensely well-received Steaming!, which was followed by Revenge of the Dim Sum Dollies in 2004, Dim Sum Dollies: Singapore’s Most Wanted in 2005, and Dim Sum Dollies: The History of Singapore! in 2007. In 2006, they lent their names to Glen Goei’s adaptation of the off-Broadway musical comedy Little Shop of Horrors performed at Victoria Theatre.

According to local director Ivan Heng,the name ‘Dim Sum Dollies’ was chosen because dim sum “came in threes, each morsel painstakingly prepared to please eye and palate”. This description describes the trio’s presentation style on stage, which combines visually-spectacular sets and costumes with an original take on all things Singaporean.

Google goes off-road: Now it straps Street View cameras to TRICYCLES to look around parks and footpaths

Google is extending its Street View website with photographs of off-road destinations that have previously not appeared online - by using specially-adapted tricycles.

Since its launch in 2007, the controversial site has allowed viewers to see images of individual homes, shops, offices and pubs taken by a fleet of cars.

But now the service will let users go beyond public streets and along footpaths and into parks, historical landmarks and gardens.

Shops could run out of PlayStation 3s after thousands are seized by customs over patent row

Customs officials have been ordered to seize all British PlayStation 3 shipments following a row over the use of Blu-Ray technology within the consoles.

Electronic giants Sony and LG are locked in battle over patents forcing officials to confiscate thousands of machines in Holland.

The ban on imports is currently set to last ten days, but could be extended if Sony does not overturn a court injunction won by LG at a civil court in The Hague.

The Japanese company is currently appealing the decision to the European Patent Office - but LG can also apply to extend the ban.

Future New Noah Ark Floating city that could make weather devastation a thing of the past

It looks like something from a sci-fi film, but this bizarre floating metropolis may be the solution for cities devastated by extreme weather.

The incredible structure measures a staggering 1,200ft high, covers 30 million square feet and is designed to house up to 40,000 residents.

It comes with everything you would expect to find in a normal city - from hotels to shops, casinos and schools.

The Space Age design is even equipped with gardens, special express elevators for 'vertical commuting' and moving walkways for pedestrians.

The bizarre plans were inspired by the devastation caused when the American city of New Orleans was ravaged by Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

Bionic man: Soldier who lost arm in grenade attack becomes first Brit to use pioneering prosthetic technology

* Corporal uses pectoral and back muscles to work new arm

A soldier who lost his right arm in a grenade attack has been fitted with a bionic limb - and he is getting to grips with it fast.

Corporal Andrew Garthwaite, believed to be the first of the British military amputees to be fitted with the pioneering prosthetic, lost the limb in September in a rocket-propelled grenade attack while serving in Afghanistan.

The attack killed another soldier but Garthwaite, 23, of the Queen's Royal Lancers, was lucky by comparison.

 Slow and steady: The soldier is getting to grips with the pioneering limb. 'It's great,' says Garthwaite
 Careful: Garthwaite is so adept with his new arm, which he controls by flexing his back and pectoral muscles, that he can pour water into a cup without spilling any.Pioneering: Corporal Andrew Garthwaite lost his right arm after a grenade attack in September while he was serving in Afghanistan
