As long as I could remember, my growing years have been a nosey affair. Almost every day, I would get runny nose, block nose. I always thought that I must have caught a chill at night, so I am very wary of turning my fan…

I noticed that the LTA is putting up another traffic light at a certain junction that does not exist for the past 30 years. In fact, it’s to control traffic between a HDB street and a major road. All I can say is: more jam…
