5 x 5: That SGX fiasco and the Bib Gourmand award at Michelin Guide Singapore

By July 14, 20165 x 5, Current

TL;DR – Everything you need to know, summarised for you daily at 5pm.

1) Guy who got breasts implants decides to remove them after 3 years.

He had gotten them because, “Whenever I saw women on the train, I’d feel very miserable that I didn’t have breasts like them” and feels “relieved” now that he has removed them.

2) SGX ceased trading as at 11.38AM

The Singapore Exchange called a market halt at 11:38 am because of duplicate trade confirmation messages being generated and the latest update at 1600 hours is that it will not resume trading and will not re-open today.

3) Michelin Guide Singapore

17 hawker stalls, 14 restaurants and three street food establishments have been given the Bib Gourmand award in the inaugural Michelin Guide Singapore. These include New Ubin Seafood, Songfa Bak Kut Teh and Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice.

4) Man gets 8½ years’ jail and 8 strokes of the cane for sexually assaulting 10-year-old niece

It makes me so sad and angry to include this. Full story here.
