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…

Did She Run Or Did She "Just Fake It" For Adidas?

Andrea Chong, a Adidas appointed influencer, posted a photo of herself in the middle of the Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon 2015 and captioned how she was "all smiles" during the run.

Unfortunately for Andrea or the PR agency, one of her readers checked her bib number #75148  at the Marathon's website only to find it to belonging to somebody else.

That somebody else is Kuvin Kuar, a intern at Edelman PR and the bib number had a status "DNF" or did not finished.

This raised the first red flag as one of the rules stated that "A Participants is strictly not allowed to transfer his or her race entry to another party".

This cascaded into perceptions that Andrea herself did not even start or complete the race and was only "planted" by Adidas or the PR agency, Edelman PR, to look pretty in the marathon.

Marketing Magazine noted that Adidas declined to comment about the incident which lead to further speculation that Andrea was possibly just …

Kudos To Huawei 2 Year Warranty For P9 Series

When it comes to smartphones, I think I am jinxed.

For my history of owning smartphones, every time it comes close to the end of the two year contract with my mobile service provider. This time round, it happened to my Huawei P9.

All of a sudden, the LCD screen sort of decolourised. I thought it was a temporary issue but the decolourisation lasted for a few hours. Then the nightmare began.

The touchscreen couldn't be touched. This made it the smartphone a brick.

I thought the Huawei P9 only had one year of warrant. With my contract ending in mid-year, I thought I would have to wait it out till the contract ended and allowed me to buy a new phone under a contract.

Luckily, a friend reminded me that the phone came with a 2 year warranty.

So I decided to go to the Huawei service center, right smack in the center of the city, to see if my phone is under warranty and if Huawei would honour their 2 year warranty.

Thankfully, Huawei isn't as popular as the Samsungs or Apples, and the …
