Jumbo Seafood restaurant lost... boo hoo

Jumbo Seafood restaurant lost… boo hoo

Singaporeans from all walks of life gathered outside Jumbo Seafood restaurant yesterday evening to pay their last respects to the eatery once hailed as the king of seafood.

This after Gordon Ramsay beat out Jumbo Seafood’s signature chili crab dish in the cook-off held at Newton Food Centre.

The popular vote by the masses gave the thumbs up to Gordon Ramsay’s dish, which effectively marked the end of an era.

Mourners said that when news of Gordon Ramsay’s win spread throughout the Jumbo Seafood restaurant, the mood turned sombre.

Waiters and waitresses were dropping plates like grapes, followed by some bouts of wailing.

A few minutes later, several of the restaurant staff were seen throwing themselves off The Riverwalk into the river.

This is the traditional Chinese method of self-immolation, a practice carried out whenever the family name has been sullied.

Bus driver gets lost on the road for two hours, and yet no one thought of getting off?

Editor’s note: Two out of three editors are out of action.

Terence is back at in-camp training. Which means I won’t be seeing him for one week.

Shihan went to the Middle East. Which means I might never see him/ her ever again.

Therefore, all I can do is gather the best news that can create the most memes. Enjoy.

But first, here’s the biggest news item of the day in five seconds: On Sunday, SBS service number 52 took a detour along Bukit Timah road and got lost, meandering hopelessly for two hours.

One of the passengers, who happens to be Channel 8 news reporter Wu Liang Xiang, made a news item out of it as he was on the ill-fated ride.

And people inside the Internet are now saying it is the bus driver’s fault because he is from China. (You can watch the original full report here.)

Maybe it is, maybe it isn’t, that is for the people to decide.

Here at New Nation, we are only really keen on exploring the other side of things.

How the reporter really felt.

How Asian parent views hard work.

Er... it's hard to explain who Good Guy Greg is.

It might have lasted one hour instead of two.

Maybe the people on the bus could have just hopped off?

ComfortDelgro owns SBS Transit. Ahem.

The end.
