TL;DR – Everything you need to know, summarised for you daily at 5pm.
1. TRS goes to jail AGAIN.[media-credit name=”Channelnewsasia” align=”aligncenter” width=”768″][/media-credit]
Remember The Real Singapore, the website that was shut down for posting seditious posts? The duo behind the thrashy site had been charged. Ai Takagi is currently serving her 10-month jail term, and her husband, Robin Yang Kaiheng, has also been sentenced to eight months’ jail.
They earned over half a million dollars in advertising revenue in less than three years of running the site, and have even bought and paid off a nice condo unit down under.
2. ‘The first time I held him was also the last.’
Remember Daniel? The poor 2-year-old boy who was abused to death by his own mother and her live-in boyfriend? His real dad was in prison when he was born, and he’s heartbroken at his son’s death. He said, ‘The first time I held him was also the last.’
The even sadder thing is Daniel was never held by his own father. And never knew the warmth and never knew a parent’s unconditional love. RIP, little one.
3.Singaporean Talent Chin Han in Hollywood
Whoooooo remembers Masters of the Sea? Yes, Chin Han! Our very ow 46-year-old Singaporean son just got signed with Creative Artists Agency (CAA). Oh, they’re just a very big artist management agency in Hollywood with A-listers like Robert Downey Jr., Jennifer Lawrence, George Clooney and Meryl Streep.
4. England’s second Brexit!
5. Too cruel for words.
A video of some soldiers brutally killing a stray dog has caused an uproar in Taiwan. The clip is 80 seconds of brutality, showing a white dog was beaten, dragged and strangled to death by soldiers based in Kaohsiung.
