    YLB #149 - Naiise visited by debt collectors on their last day of business & K-beauty brand Innisfree accused of “greenwashing”

    After local retailer Naiise announced that they’ll be closing their last outlet at Jewel Changi Airport, news spread that some vendors are still owed up to $10,000. Cue debt collectors, but are they even legal? And is Naiise to be pitied or to be chastised? Elsewhere, Innisfree got flak for their “paper bottle” which one user realised has a PLASTIC bottle inside. False marketing or no?

    YLB #148 - DPM Heng steps down as leader of 4G team & SG’s new “hunky guy cleaning service”

    On Thursday afternoon, DPM Heng (a.k.a Sugar Daddy Heng) made a monumental announcement that means he’s no longer in the running to be PM. But what happens next? And what does this mean for Singapore? In other news related to a group of men, a local renovation firm announced a cleaning service by topless men. Controversial? Or brilliant marketing?

    YLB #147 - “Pedestrianise” road experiment gets mixed reactions & the couple who painted over a $672,000 artwork

    Earlier this year, 2 roads in Singapore were selected to trial pedestrianisation. 3 months in, the reactions are mixed and Ho Ching has suggested licenses for bicycles. What’s going on? Elsewhere, a couple in Seoul mistook a graffiti artwork by JonOne as being “participatory”, and painted over it. But what really happened?

    YLB #146 - Chinese celebs boycott Nike and Adidas over Xinjiang cotton controversy & SMRT staff to start shushing us on trains

    After weeks of political aggression and sanctions, Chinese celebs like Eason Chan and Dilraba called for boycotts of Nike, H&M, Adidas and other western brands to stand with Xinjiang cotton. It’s one complicated story, but what exactly happened? Back home, SMRT station staff will soon start carrying signs to remind commuters not to talk on public transport. Does that make any sense?

    YLB #145 - Our first space comedy TV show, and it’s in TAMIL! (feat. SSV, our writer-director)

    We’ve got a TV Pilot and we need your help to make it a full series. Details below! 
    As for the episode, we speak to the writer-director of said episode, SSV, who worked with us to turn our idea into Singapore’s FIRST space comedy TV show, which we executive produced. The show is called “Mars Poyi Sernthuttom”, and we’re so proud of it. So we talk to SSV about his experience making shows across different languages, why comedy and stories are important, and the best friggin briyani in Singapore. 
    The episode is a PILOT, and we’ll only get the full series if this episode does well. So please show it some love at https://www.mewatch.sg/show/Mars-Poyi-Sernthuttom-206486

    YLB #144 - Is this the end of “work from home” in SG & the Suez Canal gets jammed up

    YLB #144 - Is this the end of “work from home” in SG & the Suez Canal gets jammed up

    On Apr 5, 75% of staff may return to the office, up from the current 50%. And the public service is taking the lead. But will “work from home” disappear, or will it stay forever? Elsewhere, the Suez Canal is being held up by one of largest container ships in the world. What caused it? What does it mean? Why is it so ridiculous? 
    EDIT: At the time of this upload, we’re aware that the ship is apparently “free”. But there’s still a jam.
