Reasons to love cats

Written by

Love them or hate them – cats are the internet’s most popular animals and they seem to be everywhere. Facebook. Instagram. Webcomics. Gifs. Youtube. A study conducted by a team of researchers from the Indiana University found that cat videos on Youtube received more views than any other videos.

Weekends are the best time to stay up late and catch up on popular, lame or funny dramas. And it does not matter what dramas you watch or how many dramas you watch – almost everyone is looking for shows and videos to watch so they can relax and de-stress. 

People.

They make the world go round.

But at the same time, people make the world seem like a small place to live. And

Hokkien is not just the domain of the uneducated and rough who lack restraint and self-discipline, nor is it a crude creation by Singaporean street punks designed to make you feel intimidated. It is a Southern Min Chinese dialect that is spoken casually on the streets, in coffee shops and wet markets – and a bonding tool for Singaporeans from all (different) walks of life to connect with each other. 

Dr. Eggman

Mad scientist. Evil doctor. Cockamamy. Dictator.

These are just some of the names people – specifically, gamers, geeks and fans of Sonic – used to describe Dr. Ivo Robotnik. Yes, the mustachioed egg-shaped villain with an IQ of 300 and whose dream is to conquer the world, create his Eggman Empire, and, possibly, stand for US Presidential elections (kidding!) so he can rule the world.

But… Have you ever stopped to think that, perhaps, like the good guys, villains, too, have their positive qualities? If your answer to the question is “No,” think again – because there are two sides to every coin. Here are five positive qualities we bet you did not know about Dr. Robotnik. 

"I don't know!" is the (in)famous response any Singaporean would say when asked "What do you do during the weekends?" If your answer to the question is going to be the same as (almost) everyone, you are not alone: many Singaporeans really do not know what to do on Saturdays and Sundays. Here are some things you can do during the lazy weekends to ward away boredom, there is absolutely no excuse for you to say: "I don't know!"
