    YLB #44 - Why queue up at IKEA, Sports Stores and Bubble Tea shops days before we “Circuit Break”?

    The weekend before our country went into “circuit breaker” mode to contain Covid19, many Singaporeans decided that it was their last chance to SHOP. The queues were insane, and the internet was pissed. But why would people do that? And are they wrong if they did?

    YLB #43 - What services really are “essential” during Covid19 and M’sian wives are told to “speak like Doraemon”

    YLB #43 - What services really are “essential” during Covid19 and M’sian wives are told to “speak like Doraemon”

    The French think pastry shops are "essential services", while the USA thinks gun shops are. Is there a right answer? In other news, domestic abuse cases increase worldwide as more people stay at home. Fortunately, a M’sian Ministry advised women (via ridiculous infographics) to “speak like Doraemon” to avoid tension with their husbands. WTF.

    YLB #42 - SG clubbers get slammed for partying amidst Covid-19, but are they wrong? And the upcoming condom shortage the world needs to prep for

    Clubs and clubbers held 'farewell' parties ahead of stricter Covid-19 measures and got slammed by the public (and a Minister and at least 1 doctor). So should people socialize at all if Singapore isn’t in lockdown? And can business be blamed for wanting to squeeze out some revenue? Amidst the current pandemic, the world also needs to brace itself for a condom shortage ‘cos of manufacturing plants closing down. Especially in Malaysia, who produce 1 out of every 5 condoms in the world. Whaaaaaaaaat.

    YLB #41 - SG’s invasion of privacy shocks the New York Times and Malaysia’s Bomoh is back (and still ridiculous)

    The New York Times wrote about civil rights plummeting worldwide as govts mine info to curb Covid-19. But does privacy even matter now? And Malaysia’s world-infamous Bomoh (a traditional shaman / mystic healer) is back with his shenanigans. But could there be something positive about it?

    YLB #40 - A wet market, the Bible and the Quran - the 3 things in pictures that pissed Singaporeans off this week

    YLB #40 - A wet market, the Bible and the Quran - the 3 things in pictures that pissed Singaporeans off this week

    Melissa Chen, a SG-born activist in the US famous for helping Amos Yee get asylum, faced backlash this week for using a picture of a local wet market in an article about Chinese wet markets. Why? In another picture that pissed off a bunch of people, a parody Facebook page called “NUS Atheist Society” posted a pic of a Quran next to a Bible with the caption “For use during toilet paper shortages". And now they’re being investigated by the police. But is that fair?

    YLB #39 - Malaysia goes into lockdown to battle Covid-19 so should we stock up on toilet paper (again)?

    YLB #39 - Malaysia goes into lockdown to battle Covid-19 so should we stock up on toilet paper (again)?

    Malaysia going into lockdown is the latest development in a week that saw Covid-19 become the most global event in recent times (besides the World Cup or the Olympics). So...toilet paper? Self-quarantine? Social distancing? And what the hell is herd immunity? We talk through all these along with our own thoughts and worries, so hopefully it’ll be as cathartic for you as it was for us. ‘Cos sometimes you just gotta vent, right? So enjoy!
