It’s time to Shop Gals !!!

I always wonder what’s the fuss about accessories and why people bother spending so much time choosing them.

I recall back in my school days when friendship rings and couple rings were so popular, especially those that are made of two halves that can be spilt amongst 2 person, each wearing one. Heart shaped trinkets and charm were also a symbol of love back then.

When K-wave and Taiwan craze started, dramas with the rich TaiTai and young ladies on screen wearing gold and pearl necklaces that looks as though it’s weighing them down and breaking their neck.

Wedding almost became a funeral

It was a wedding that not only defied convention but almost became a funeral.

Mr Zack Ling and Mrs Fanny Ling did eventually get married on Saturday, but the days leading up to the happy day were traumatic.

Mrs Ling, 39, was previously a man while her husband, 35, used to be insensitive about the transgender community.

Against all odds and despite the disapproval from friends and family, they started dating and lived together in Mrs Ling’s flat four years ago.

To pay the wedding expenses and a new home, they put the three-room flat at Bedok Reservoir Road up for sale and moved to a rented room.

But just a week before their solemnisation, their wedding plans hit a roadblock: A buyer reneged on the purchase of their flat because he didn’t have enough money, said Mr Ling, a chef.

On Feb 6, they approached HDB and the property agency which handled the sale, but were told there was nothing they could do. Mrs Ling was crushed.

“Suddenly, after all that we’ve been through, it felt like the wedding was no more. I didn’t want to hear any more,” said Mrs Ling, a part-time human resources executive.

“If I had to cancel the wedding, I wouldn’t know how to face others. The invitations were sent out and the venue was booked already.”

Angry and frustrated, she walked away from her husband-to-be and her property agent while they were still discussing the problem.

She sat at the lobby of HDB Hub in Toa Payoh and became more agitated after reflecting on her situation. Without informing Mr Ling, she walked to an overhead bridge nearby.

The People of Singapore – Mschorlor

I came from a very poor family background. I grew up in a one-room rented flat. A one room flat is actually a whole flat with no rooms, just a kitchen and bathroom off to one side. So I slept on a mattress on the floor. My whole childhood we could only afford to rent.

My mum was not educated. So she never could hold a good job. All her life she worked as a hawker assistant. From chicken rice to laksa, to wanton mee. Making $30/day. Maybe $50 now. With that income she brought up me and my bro. She supported us through school, though we both never completed our education. And on top of all that, supporting a drug addict husband.

I always hated him for that. He spent more of his life in drug rehabilitation centres than at home. Each time he went in, it was 2, 3 or even 5 years at a time. And once he was out, he never fails to report in soon again. I hated him for never being a father to me. For being like that – never supporting the family, leaving mum to suffer hardship all by herself, taking her money for drugs. He died years ago now. I never stopped hating him.
