International Day of Peace 2019


The International Day of Peace is observed each year on September 21 to promote the ideal of a world free from war and hostile military engagement.

Even if only for a day, warring factions around the globe are encouraged to temporarily refrain from active engagement. The day is intended to provide a short reprieve from violent conflict and allow all combatants and civilians an opportunity to contemplate other possible alternatives.

Also known as World Peace Day, the annual observation originated as the result of a resolution of the United Nations General Assembly in 1981. The first observance was in 1982. The observation was initially scheduled to be celebrated annually on the opening day of the U.N. General Assembly, which was the third Tuesday of each September. Almost two decades later, in 2001, the date of the observation was moved to September 21.


International Day of Peace promotes the notion that the awareness of the potential for peace provides an enticing incentive for opposing sides to reach nonviolent solutions. Over the years, dialogue concerning domestic violence and bullying have broadened the themes of discussion. A moment of silence is observed at noon in each global time zone to demonstrate a consensus of solidarity. Various events are held throughout the world to celebrate the day and its significance.

What Are Omega-3 Fatty Acids

Explained in Simple Terms

Omega-3 fatty acids are important fats that you must get from your diet. However, most people don't know what they are. This article explains everything you need to know about omega-3 fatty acids, including their various types and how they work.

Omega-3s are a family of essential fatty acids that play important roles in your body and may provide a number of health benefits. As your body cannot produce them on its own, you must get them from your diet. The three most important types are ALA (alpha-linolenic acid), DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid). ALA is mainly found in plants, while DHA and EPA occur mostly in animal foods and algae. Common foods that are high in omega-3 fatty acids include fatty fish, fish oils, flax seeds, chia seeds, flaxseed oil, and walnuts.

For people who do not eat much of these foods, an omega-3 supplement, such as fish oil or algal oil, is often recommended.

Drinking up to 25 coffees a day

'Not bad for your heart'
Coffee lovers, rejoice – drinking it does not pose risks for your heart health, it has been found

Consuming up to 25 cups a day of the popular caffeinated drink does not lead to a higher risk of heart-related conditions like heart attack or stroke, according to a new study.

It was previously thought coffee-drinking causes stiffer arteries, a condition which makes your heart work harder to transport oxygen and nutrients around the body, which puts you at higher risk of heart attack or stroke.


However, scientists at Queen Mary University, London, disproved this theory in an analysis of more than 8,000 people.

Singapore PM sues online editor

Lee Wei Ling speaks out again on 38 Oxley Road: “One has to be remarkably dumb or ill-informed to not know what LKY wanted to happen to his marital home”
“My father made it well known in his lifetime that he would like 38 Oxley Road demolished when I no longer need it. Papa doesn’t mince words, yet a special committee of the Cabinet was formed to divine what Papa really wants!!”

Around the same time as the release of a statement from Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong’s press secretary detailing that PM Lee will testify in court if his defamation suit against the chief editor of The Online Citizen (TOC) goes to trial, his sister Dr Lee Wei Ling reiterates her stance on 38 Oxley Road, the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew’s home.

In a lengthy Facebook post on Tuesday (September 10) evening, Dr Lee repeated what she knew of her father’s stance on his marital home: “My father made it well known in his lifetime that he would like 38 Oxley Road demolished when I no longer need it. Papa doesn’t mince words, yet a special committee of the Cabinet was formed to divine what Papa really wants!!”

She outlined the reasons why her father, Mr Lee Kuan Yew wanted his house demolished; he did not want it open to public or turned into a shrine, Mdm Kwa Geok Choo was a private person and did not want the public trampling through her home. In her Facebook post, Dr Lee remarked that “the PAP is trying to build a LKY personality cult.I hope this will fade away. Not because I am an unfilial daughter but because I want Singapore to continue to prosper and survive beyond LKY. So Oxley should be demolished after I am gone”.

"Mr Lee’s position on 38 Oxley Road was unwavering over the years, and fully consistent with his lifelong values. We should respect his wishes, as well as those of Mrs Lee."

Since then, Loong has sought to rewrite history about Papa’s stance on demolitiion to claim, unbelievably, that Lee Kuan Yew wavered in his unwavering wish. He now says:

"However, after hearing Cabinet's unanimous views that the property should not be demolished, Mr Lee eventually came to accept that the Government was likely to preserve the property in the public interest. He was consequently prepared to be flexible and contemplate options short of demolition."

‘I want to ask the Prime Minister straight in his face why he is suing me instead of his siblings’ – Terry Xu
Mr Xu added that he was determined to stand his ground against such uncalled-for intimidation, especially when it is from a public servant

The Online Citizen (TOC) editor Terry Xu has revealed that he intends to directly question Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong  on why he is suing him, instead of his own siblings, over comments made in the explosive Lee family feud in 2017.

On 1 Sept, PM Lee asked Mr Xu to remove an article and Facebook post published by TOC repeating allegations of abuse of power that his sister Lee Wei Ling made in 2017.


The PM asked TOC to publish a “full and unconditional apology,” along with an undertaking that it would not publish similar allegations in the future, and warned that he will “have no choice but to hand the matter over to his lawyers to sue to enforce his full rights in law” if TOC does not comply.

In a brief statement to the media, Ms Chang said that the suit was filed “because the allegations are completely false”, referring to the article that was published on TOC on 15 August which repeated allegations made by PM Lee’s siblings, Mr Lee Hsien Yang and Dr Lee Wei Ling, about the 38 Oxley Road dispute.

Ms Chang added, “His [PM Lee’s] siblings can decide, together with Mr Xu, whether they too will testify, and repeat the allegations in court. The court can then establish the facts.”

PM Lee’s press secretary Chang Li Lin released a media statement on Tuesday night (10 September) outlining his intentions. The statement said, “The Prime Minister has filed a suit against Mr Terry Xu of The Online Citizen (TOC) for defamation.

Singapore prime minister sues independent news website for defamation
TOC summons
Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong is suing Terry Xu, chief editor of independent news website The Online Citizen (TOC), for defamation in relation to a news article published by the latter which tackled the leader’s public feud with his siblings

Critics said this is another example of the government’s harsh treatment of independent media and other groups which report about dissenting views against the country’s authorities. In Singapore, defamation is an offence that carries a maximum penalty of a two-year prison sentence and a fine.

On 15 August 2019, TOC published an article titled “PM Lee’s wife, Ho Ching weirdly shares article on cutting ties with family members”, which was also posted on Facebook. It notes the irony of Ho sharing an article about toxic family members:
Although there’s nothing particularly wrong with the article and the points raised by the author, but the irony of Madam Ho sharing the article is what’s interesting and amusing to us. This is because everyone knows that she has a sour relationship with her husband’s family members – particularly her brother-in-law Lee Hsien Yang (LHY) and sister-in-law Dr Lee Wei Ling (LWL).
The TOC article quoted previous public statements by LHY and LWL who accused their brother of going against the wishes of their late father, Singapore’s first Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew. LHY and LWL said their family house at Oxley Road was supposed to be demolished after the death of their father in 2015 but they claimed that their brother wanted to keep the house intact “to inherit (Lee Kuan Yew’s) credibility”. The prime minister denied this and told the parliament in 2017 that his father was open to how the property would be preserved or developed for the public interest.

The legal action comes a day after Xu said in a reply to PM Lee that he won’t comply with his demands to immediately remove the article and publicly apologise to him by Wednesday.


TOC said in a post on its Facebook page that a Writ of Summons along with a Statement of Claim has been served by Davinder Singh Chambers on behalf of PM Lee to Xu, on Thursday (5 September), 3.51pm at his house.

Zhong Qiu Jie 中秋节 Mooncake Festival 2019


Taking place on the 15th day of the eighth lunar month, this festival is sometimes referred to as 'Lantern Festival' (not to be confused with the Lantern Festival which ends Chinese New Year) or 'Mooncake Festival' in Singapore, Malaysia and the Philippines, due to the integral part moon cakes play in the festival.


It commemorates the 14th-century revolution led by Yuan Zhang, who smuggled notes inside moon cakes and used lighted lanterns as a signal to launch the revolt. One of the highlights of the festival is the Moon Cake Fair, where hundreds of festive stalls line the streets of Chinatown selling an astonishing variety of moon cakes, traditional paper lanterns, decorations and other delicacies. Children parade down the streets with their brightly lit lanterns in the Children's Lantern Procession. The Chinese Garden becomes a fairyland of lights and colours for the Lantern Festival, and there is also a range of cultural shows and performances including lion and dragon dancing, Chinese instrumentalists and craftsmen.


In fact, with far too much festivity for one day, the Mid-Autumn Festival is a month-long celebration in Singapore and a great period in which to visit the city.

Mid-Autumn Festival 中秋节


One of the loveliest Chinese festivals, the Mid-Autumn Festival in Singapore is about celebration with the family, lantern processions and oh-so-sweet mooncakes.

The cute biscuits shaped like piglets encased in little baskets are actually made of the same dough as traditional mooncakes. Initially, they were the result of bakers testing oven temperatures on plain pastry but became so popular that they are now a staple in their own right.


Marking the end of the autumn harvest, the Mid-Autumn Festival was traditionally a time to give thanks to the gods.


It is also a time of year that the moon is at its brightest, which is why lunar legends have always been attached to the celebration. Notably, the story of Chang Er, the wife of a merciless king who downed the elixir of immortality he had intended to drink, to save her people from his tyrannical rule.


The tale goes that she ascended to the moon after that, and has been worshipped by the Chinese as a Moon Goddess ever since.


When dusk falls

Since the Mid-Autumn Festival is about lunar appreciation, celebrations go into full swing once the sun goes down.

Moon-viewing parties are a popular way to enjoy the occasion, as family and friends sit in gardens lit by the soft glow of paper lanterns, sip tea, nibble on mooncakes, and if so inspired, compose poetry in venerable Tang Dynasty fashion.


Lanterns all a-glow

Children love this festival because they get to tote lanterns.

The traditional opt for those lighted by wax candles – elegant paper versions or more elaborate multi-hued cellophane and wire structures shaped into everything from cars to cartoon characters.


There are also unfortunately, plastic battery-operated music-emitting versions – but to each his own.


You’ll get to examine the real thing up close at some of the celebrations around the island, particularly in Chinatown where large beautiful lanterns will be on display – marvels of creativity, artistry and traditional craftsmanship. You’ll also get to sample mooncakes and fine teas at the street bazaars, watch nightly performances and peek at lantern-painting competitions.


Did you know?

The cute biscuits shaped like piglets encased in little baskets are actually made of the same dough as traditional mooncakes. Initially, they were the result of bakers testing oven temperatures on plain pastry but became so popular that they are now a staple in their own right.

Mad about mooncakes

Without a doubt, mooncakes are the main highlight of the Mid-Autumn Festival. Legend has it that they helped to free Yuan China from Mongol rule, after rebels organised an uprising by passing messages hidden in these seasonal sweets. Today, you’ll find them in many varieties, from the traditional with lotus seed paste and egg yolk, to snowskin versions filled with everything from chocolate to champagne truffle. They are best enjoyed with a strong, palate-cleansing cup of Chinese tea.

Two Chinese newspapers in Singapore had a field day reporting on the woman caught on video driving her black Mercedes against the flow of traffic in Chinatown.

Not only did the two Chinese newspapers managed to report on details about the woman’s career and place of residence, they even managed to publish photos of her supposedly culled from her now-defunct Instagram account — well within the limits of the law.

This is given that doxxing a person in Singapore is no longer legal, but the Chinese newspapers were careful in omitting certain details that would have cut too close for comfort.
