1. What’s the story behind Juz-B?

Juz-B was formed back in 1995 when we were in Bowen Secondary School. It originally had 3 members and we performed mainly in school events. After we graduated from secondary school, we still got together due to our passion for singing.

Our group first appeared on national TV in the Asia Bagus programme back in 1997 and we were known as Take 5, because there were five of us. However, there was a boy band with the same name so we changed it to High 5 but another group targeted at younger children also called themselves Hi 5. We didn’t want our audience to be confused so we named our group as Juz-B, which means “just be yourself”.

2. You are original because___________________________.

….we do more than other Acapella groups! Besides singing without instruments, we also do lots of vocal play, which is to use voice to imitate musical instruments. We are a multi-racial and multi-lingual group as we also perform English, Mandarin, Korean and even Bollywood songs.

3. Which of your works will you be performing at The Originals IP Race? What are the inspirations behind these musical creations?

  • Oh–ya: This is a pride of our band as we use lots of vocal play in it. The vocal play instruments include bongos and trumpets, plus we have added a reggaeton beat to it. (Raggaeton is a mix of reggae and latin sounds.)
  • Funky-5:  This is our group’s anthem as the lyrics reflect our motto which is to just be ourselves.
  • Minus 1: Those at the IP Race are in for a treat as we will debut this song at the Race itself! Participants of the IP Race will be the first in the world to hear this original piece.

Why is Ramly Burger banned in Singapore?

Yahoo Singapore ran an article of the Ramly Burger by highlighting that it is ban in Singapore.

Yet, the writer from Makansutra failed to address the most important issue of why the Ramly meat patty is banned in Singapore.

A search online easily did highlight that the famous Malaysian meat patty is banned by the AVA but didn't go into details.

Wrote Arlina Arshad for The Straits Times in January 2004,

"But the importing of beef and beef products from Malaysia is not permitted, said theAgri-Food and Veterinary Authority (AVA).

Selling and supplying them without a permit is also an offence, and offenders can befined as much as $50,000 or jailed two years, or both, said the AVA."

In May of the same year, another article highlighted that a man was even charged in court for "smuggling" the Ramly burger in 2004.

"The AVA said that meat products processed in Malaysian food factories which it had notapproved were banned here.Suzali was yesterday jailed for four month…

Those Who Gamble Online Have Poorest Control - NCG Survey In 2012

Singapore will soon exempt local operators, Singapore Pools and Turf Club, from online gambling ban and the sites will be ready in November 2016.

Ministry of Home Affairs explained that a complete ban on remote gambling drives demand and activities underground, and may create larger incentives for criminal syndicates to target Singapore."

Yet in a 2012 survey by the National Council on Problem Gambling (NCG) found that those who gamble online have the poorest control.

For those who indulged in online gambling, 30.4% said they gambled for a longer period than they planned to, 33.3% gambled with more money than they planned and 29.2% gambled more frequently they planned to. 
Will launching the online gambling sites be like opening a Pandora Box that will create more issues in the future?

A Very Small Chicken Or An Oversized Popcorn Chicken?

Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) Singapore Facebook Page recently received a complaint of the size of the chicken being served at KFC.

Barnabas Ng took a photo of his chicken from KFC which showed it to be almost the size of the KFC small container. It also looked like a an oversize popcorn chicken.

Wrote Barnabas,

"Hi KFC, is this your new standard size for a chicken? I order 3 piece meal and 2 pieces including this so called original recipe chicken is smaller than the size of the cap of ur small mash potato.

Have you guys try to cut cost so much that you are offering half a size chicken pieces for a full price meal? It is just getting from bad to worse"

KFC Singapore did reply to Barnabas for him to PM his mobile number but Barnabas has yet to receive any calls from KFC Singapore, as of this posting.

Maybe chickens are also shrinking with the current climate change?
