Its success has spawned two sequels, “China Rich Girlfriend”, which was released in 2014, and “Rich People Problems”, which he’s currently working on.

    New details about a plot to fire a rocket at Marina Bay from Batam island have raised more questions over the capabilities of the terrorist cell behind the foiled attack. Indonesia's National Counter-terrorism Agency (BNPT) chief Suhardi Alius said the suspects planned to launch the strike from a hilltop in Taman Habibie. The little-known nature park is located about 17km from Singapore's shoreline and just over 18km from Marina Bay Sands.

One aspect of the trip that really resonated with me was the country's use of vertical farming and other cutting edge agricultural techniques. Population Pressures The...

    Singapore reported another big batch of Zika virus cases Sunday, bringing its total count in just a week to 215, and World Health Organization officials said the spread of the virus definitely still constitutes a global health emergency. Zika's apparent quick spread out of Latin America and in Asia and Africa has WHO officials worried. They have no idea if the virus will spread as explosively as it has in the Americas, and they cannot predict if it will cause a fresh wave of birth defects and side-effects such as the paralyzing Guillain-Barré syndrome.

    Singapore is reportedly holding off a decision to buy the Lockheed Martin F-35 jet, a multi-role stealthy warplane that is touted as the world's most advanced fighter. A Bloomberg article published on Tuesday said the Republic's Permanent Secretary of Defence Development - who was not named in the story - informed the United States in mid-June that Singapore would be delaying the final steps of the purchasing process. The report added that Singapore had intended to acquire four F-35s by around 2022, with the option to purchase another eight more, citing information from the Pentagon's programme office.

Singapore's Minister of Defence Ng Eng Hen confirmed in a Facebook post late Friday that one of the alleged plans of the group of suspects was to use rockets to attack targets in Marina Bay from Batam. "We should assume that there may be more plots, other terror cells on the lookout for ways, and new munitions to penetrate our defenses," Ng said. Parts of the Batam Island are as little as 20...

    For months, a small team of U.S. Navy investigators and federal prosecutors secretly devised options for a high-stakes international manhunt. Could the target be snatched from his home base in Asia and rendered to the United States? Or held captive aboard an American warship? Making the challenge even tougher was the fact that the man was a master of espionage. His moles had burrowed deep into the Navy hierarchy to leak him a stream of military secrets, thwarting previous efforts to bring him to justice. The target was not a terrorist, nor a spy for a foreign power, nor the...

U.S. officials have expressed concern that an international court ruling expected in coming weeks on a case brought by the Philippines against China over its South China Sea claims could prompt Beijing to declare an air defense identification zone, or ADIZ, as it did over the East China Sea in 2013. "We would consider an ADIZ...over portions of the South China Sea as...

    The Republic of Singapore won its independence from Malaysia in 1965, when Singapore had 75% Chinese Buddhists and 15% Malay Muslims. Today, nearly 50 years later, Muslims still comprise the same 15%. How has Singapore been able to do this without ethnic cleansing and without receiving a single human-rights violation complaint from the UN or that notorious Multinational Muslim Mafia OIC? Simple, the Chinese-Buddhist-dominated Singaporean Government uses two pronged approach: (1) Strict non-immigration policy for Muslims (2) Strict legal prohibition of interfaith-marriages between Muslim men and non-Muslim women in Singapore. In Singapore, no Muslim male is allowed to marry a...

    The still-booming city-state looks to the future with some foreboding. Lee Kwan Yew, one of the great political architects of our time, died a year ago, but the regime he established in Singapore remains entrenched in power. In fact, the parliamentary elections last year—to the surprise and consternation of Lee’s critics—enlarged his People’s Action Party (PAP) majority in Parliament from a record low of 60 percent to close to 70 percent. Despite talk of a “new normal” defined by more competitive politics, the city-state’s norms remain very much as they have been for the better part of a half century....

    Whether it’s here in the United States or across Europe, immigration has become a flashpoint in policy discussions. Legitimate concerns are expressed over factors ranging from potential competition for jobs or resources to feed the needy, to worries about terrorists crossing borders in the guise of desperate refugees. Liberal thinkers frequently deride such concerns, labeling those who utter them as “xenophobes” or racists. If you happen to publish any material questioning or criticizing generous immigration policy or loose restrictions here in America you can expect to come under attack by opponents all across the media spectrum. Fortunately, that’s pretty...

    Pundits and professors love to divide conservatives into camps, specifically, economic vs. religious. Like most of the dichotomies they concoct, it is a false one. At the Family Research Council last Thursday, Catholic University professor Jay Richards showed that there is an overwhelming overlap among countries that score highly on both the Heritage Foundation Index of Economic Freedom and the Pew Research Center survey of religious liberty, outliers such as Singapore notwithstanding. Moreover, in this country alone, the lawsuit that the Little Sisters of the Poor brought against Obamacare shows the startling degree to which the interests of secular libertarians...
