The Lone Ranger to hit Singapore screens on 4 July 2013

Did you grow up watching The Lone Ranger with Tonto fighting injustice in The Wild West? I bet you will remember the famous this famous line "Hi Ho Sliver. Away!"

"Away to the cinema" is what you will shout on 4 July 2013 as Disney's The Lone Ranger hits Singapore screens.

It would be interesting for a old man like me to see how this new Lone Ranger spans out.  

The Original Lone Ranger

The new Lone Ranger will, of course, have new effects to fit the big screen of 2013. 

Don't think there was pistol coming out from the shoe years ago..

The Lone Ranger would be Disney's latest bet on a movie that was plagued with issues. The movie was delayed in production two years ago due to to the increasing budget. However, production continued a year later and now we get to see the Lone Ranger in the big screen. 

The new Lone Ranger stars Armie Hammer as the Lone Ranger. However, the star power will be pulled in by Johnny Depp as Tonto, Lone Rangers trusting partner to fight injustice in the Wild West.  Johnny Depp role change will be interesting to see him move from being a pirate to a American Indian. With the Pirates of Caribbean movie series come close to an end after four sequels, the Lone Ranger would and could spell the start of a new movie series if the first episodes does well in the box office. 

"Am I looking at a new sequel?"

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.

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 …
