    We put it to the lick test.McDonald’s Nasi Lemak Burger is back with a couple of new sidekicks, like some rather dull potato wedges - and this rather interesting Sweet Corn Cone ($1). It tastes like the fast food chain's well-loved vanilla soft serve ice cream perfumed with a subtle corn flavour. It’s reminiscent of the old-school slab version between wafer biscuits you get from the ice cream cart uncle, but softer, creamier and smoother. It would’ve been even yummier if it were studded with crunchy corn kernels. Still, it’s pretty refreshing in this current hot weather. Worth trying, we...

During the early design stages of the Littoral Mission Vessel (LMV) in September 2010, Lieutenant-Colonel Chew Chun Chau chanced upon a video of the late Steve Jobs introducing the iPad. If an iPad's functions could be customised with apps, he wondered why a ship could not also be modified...

    U.S. President Donald Trump is stepping up outreach to allies in Asia to discuss the North Korean nuclear threat and make sure all are "on the same page" if action was needed, a top White House official said on Sunday. White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus said Trump would speak to the leaders of Singapore and Thailand on Sunday, after North Korea test-launched another missile that Washington and Seoul said was unsuccessful but which drew widespread international condemnation. The telephone calls follow Trump's conversation on Saturday night with Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte. A week ago, Trump spoke with the...

    The owner of the now-defunct Cuddles Cat Cafe was on Tuesday (Apr 18) sentenced to two weeks' jail for giving false information about the health of the cats on his premises. Jonathan Tan Wei-De was also fined S$3,500 for failing to comply with licensing conditions, the Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority of Singapore (AVA) said in a media release. Tan's cat cafe was thrust in the spotlight in October 2014 when the AVA was alerted to allegations of mismanagement of diseased cats there. He was also believed to have provided falsified cat health records when applying for a temporary licence with...

    Deputy national security adviser K.T. McFarland dodged on Sunday when asked whether President Trump plans to name her as the U.S. ambassador to Singapore, saying only that “there are changes coming.” McFarland’s status in the Trump administration has been in question following the resignation of national security adviser Michael Flynn, who reportedly chose her for the job. Flynn resigned in February after misleading Vice President Pence and the public about his conversations with a Russian diplomat. “The president and I have had a number of conversations over the last two months, really, about what my role would continue to be...

McFarland is also in the running for a position at the State Department, according to the report, which said it was unclear if Secretary of State Rex Tillerson had made her a concrete offer. McFarland was chosen to serve as the number two on the National Security Council when retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn was set to be President Trump’s top adviser on national security.

They allegedly used fake names and foreign email address to keep their actions secret.

    To boycott or not to boycott First Lady Melania Trump because of her husband’s politics has been hotly debated in US fashion circles, but for one Chinese designer, at least one member of the first family is a major asset. Tiffany Trump, the youngest daughter of the US president, was guest of honour in the front row at Taoray Wang’s New York fashion week show on Saturday, accompanied by her mother, Trump’s ex-wife Marla Maples. The 23-year-old first daughter, who wore Taoray Wang at her father’s inauguration weekend, has been happily adopted by the Chinese label as it seeks to...

    Hong Kong said on Tuesday it would release the nine Singaporean armored vehicles it seized in November on their way home from military exercises in Taiwan, easing tensions between China and Singapore. After the troop carriers had been seized, Beijing, which regained sovereignty over the former British colony of Hong Kong in 1997, warned countries against maintaining military ties with Taiwan, which it views as a wayward province. Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong wrote to Hong Kong Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying requesting the return of the carriers, and Hong Kong said it would handle the matter in accordance with...

    SINGAPORE – President Rodrigo Duterte has been labeled in many ways – from Dirty Harry of the South to Donald Trump of the East. But many of his supporters call him something else, Lee Kuan Yew of the Philippines. From December 15 to 16, Duterte will visit Singapore, the country of which Lee is considered the founding father. Here, the late Lee is a giant figure and is widely credited for raising his country from third world to first world status, even as he is criticized for his authoritarian ways and little patience for dissenting voices. I asked some Filipinos...

    Chijioke Obioha, a 38-year-old Nigerian, has been executed in Singapore after being found guilty of drug trafficking, the local media reported on Friday. Mr. Obioha was hanged in Changi Prison early Friday morning alongside a Malaysian national who was convicted on separate drugs offenses, the Straits Times reported, quoting a statement from the country's anti-narcotics bureau. Mr. Obioha was arrested in April 2007 after being found in possession of more than 2.6 kilograms of cannabis. The quantity surpassed the 500 grams threshold that triggers the automatic presumption of trafficking under Singaporean law. He was found guilty in December 2008 and...
