SINGAPORE 26 NOVEMBER 2018: More than 85% of positions in the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) are still occupied by men, a study conducted by Unbiased National Association of Women for Action and Research (UNAWARE) announced.
Citing a study of a quip from a random SAF enlistee PTE Wong Oak: “I everytime in camp only can see men. Where are the women? It’s (end) 2018 people, come on lah! Can you wake up your idea?”
W. Oak added: “The glass ceiling is, sadly, alive and well. According to the Singapore Board of Directors Survey 2015, 93% of respondents relied on “personal contacts” when looking for board candidates – in other words, relying on the “old boys’ network” which systematically excludes women.”
“Much more can be done to address and eradicate the perceptions, biases and structures that are still in place which limit women’s choices and opportunities.” W. Oak said.
TMT reached out to SAF for comments, and was promptly told “eh fuck you understand you nahbay chao jibye.” and “you think u funny mickey mouse fun fair is it? Go and sign 3.”
With the recent hiking incident in Malaysia where 2 Singaporeans were stranded for days, here are 3 top tips to remember when hiking to avoid getting into unfortunate situations.
1. Don’t go hiking
Hiking may seem like a nice way to exercise while enjoying the outdoors, but is it worth the risk? Staying home will ensure you never step off the beaten path or make it hard for rescuers to find you. Keep this tip in mind the next time you decide to go for a walk in the jungle.
2. Bring a NSF/NSman officer along
Everybody knows that because someone went through an officer cadet course they are instantly above everyone else. With the incessant, unending whines from them, you’ll know every single detail about how tough it was when they took their jungle confidence course. As much as it is a pain being around them, you know that when you get lost you can rely on them to get you out of the jungle because they saw some bird die in Thailand and had to eat it.
3. Go to Jurong instead
Let’s face it; Jurong is basically Malaysia. With all of it’s foreign-ness and disconnection, Jurong might as well be Malaysia. With the insanity of putting 3 malls around 1 MRT station, there’s plenty to explore in the area.

The Singapore Health Promotion Board (HPB) has earned the Healthier Choice label over fellow Multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) title Dota 2.
“The salt content in Dota 2 is at extremely unhealthy levels and should be taken in moderation.” Said Mr. Kiam, spokesman of HPB. “When consumed in excessive quantities, Dota 2 players may face health complications such as kidney failure due to extreme salt intake. Severe cases may even develop into cancer” added Mr. Kiam.
“Heroes of the Storm is a much healthier alternative, and provides similar levels of entertainment, albeit less intense.” Mr. Kiam said at a press event.
Closing off with some advice, Mr. Kiam said that in addition to considering alternatives, players can consider “git gud” to avoid negative health implications.

“It really resonates with what SMRT is providing Singapore with, every day.” Said SMRT spokesperson, Sum Ting Wong. “SMRT is not just about what we hope to achieve, but also what we are currently bringing to the table for Singaporeans.”
Wong has stated that the lyrics, “The ting goes skrrraa” in particular, speaks volumes about the recent Joo Koon train collision. Adding to the statement, Wong said about the line “When the ting went quack-quack-quack, You man were ducking.” describes perfectly the moment when the trains collided, causing unfortunate commuters to’duck.’
“You man thought I froze” was another excerpt particularly familiar with the SMRT ideals.
“It’s almost as if it was written to mirror SMRT situations,” Wong said about the line. “Many times, we just have trains waiting at stations due to a plethora of reasons.”
“Man is hot,” reported Big Shaq, recent worldwide-sensation rapper. “Man thought Man can never be hot, but here… here, Man is very hot.” Big Shaq continued to say, in the blistering 34°C weather.
Sweat was rolling down the sides of Big Shaq as he tried to flag a cab on the roadside of the MRT station, after the train failed to depart the station due to a track fault or some other reason, not that it matters.
Big Shaq most recently shot to fame after an overnight sensation following this video.
Upon entering the cab, Big Shaq was asked by the cab driver if he would like the air-conditioning on. “Ya dun know,” said Big Shaq.
