Jay Chou visits the beach at Sentosa with wife Hannah Quinlivan

Following a surprise visit to a local bak kut teh joint, Mandopop king Jay Chou was once again spotted in Singapore, this time with his wife - actress Hannah Quinlivan - in tow. 인터넷바카라

On Sunday (Aug 26), the 39-year-old posted an Instagram photo of himself and a friend with their pet dogs. He captioned the photo in Mandarin: "At the Sentosa beach, where walking your dog on the weekends is a trend."

While his 25-year-old wife did not appear in the picture, she had posted her own Instagram photos hours before Chou's post.

Members of the public who spotted the couple and posted photos on social media tagged the location as Tanjong Beach Club.

This is the second time Chou has been spotted in public here over the weekend. On Saturday, local bak kut teh eatery Founder Bak Kut Teh Cafeteria posted a photo on their Facebook page, where Chou is seen with his arm around the restaurant's founder Chua Chwee Whatt, who was celebrating his 73rd birthday.

Chua's son told The Straits Times that Chou is a regular at Founder's Balestier branch and came with two friends and a bodyguard. Quinlivan was not with him. He stayed for 35 minutes and was treated to lunch by the elder Chua. 온라인바카라

 

Chou, who wrapped up the Qingdao, China leg of his world tour The Invincible last Friday, revealed on Instagram that he had hopped on a plane immediately after the concert ended. He was then spotted in Singapore.

Chou, who held a sold-out concert at the National Stadium in January this year, is set to return to Singapore next month as one of the music acts headlining the upcoming Formula 1 2018 Singapore Airlines Singapore Grand Prix.

    hile I appreciate that Emeritus Senior Minister Goh Chok Tong spoke from experience and with good intentions, I do not think his statement has adequately addressed Singaporeans' concerns over ministerial salaries. 온라인카지노 Singaporean MPs remain significantly higher paid than their counterparts in other developed nations, such as Britainor Germany, even after factoring in additional on-the-job benefits that those countries provide or disparities in the costs of living. Most developed nations pay their ministers an equitable remuneration based on an average of the country's per capita gross domestic product. The significance of this comparison is twofold. 온라인바카라 First, Singaporeans may perceive this salary gap as an incongruity. Even if the Government presents logical justifications for its pay structure, the popular perception of "excessive salary" will remain, and that can have the very tangible effect of undermining faith in public institutions.   Thus, while Mr Goh's position is well argued, I do not think Singaporeans have been convinced. Second, it casts doubts on the argument that competitive salaries are required to attract top talent. 카지노사이트주소 Indeed, the Cabinets of the above-mentioned countries are staffed with highly qualified and capable individuals willing to forgo private-sector opportunities and remuneration to serve their electorate. This harks back to Singapore's first generation of leaders, who poured their talents and energies into the nation-building project without the expectation of a handsome salary. Do we not desire this spirit of self-sacrificial service in our leaders?

    I believe that ministers must be given adequate and comparable pay, taking into consideration the sacrifices they have to make when crossing over from the private to the public sector. 인터넷카지노     Being a high-flying chief executivein the corporate world is very different from being a minister or politician. The CEO's primary job is to ensure that he and his staff bring in profit for the organisation. To this end, the CEO has to fully exploit his business and financial acumen and lay out the strategies for his staff to adhere to. 인터넷바카라 And for this, he and his staff are adequately rewarded with good bonuses by the board of directors at the end of the financial year. But, if the same CEO crosses over to the public sector and becomes a minister, it is no longer about moneymaking but, rather, about the service to the people.   It is an entirely different ball game in the public sector, where the passion to serve the people is paramount. A good minister need not always be a high-flier from the corporate world with a master's degree or PhD. As long as he is reasonably educated, able to mix well and identify with the ground, able to communicate his thoughts well and can lead, he will make a good minister. 카지노사이트 There are so many examples of ministers who were not high-fliers in the corporate world before crossing over. If any high-flier from the private sector insists that he will become a minister only if he gets the same pay he was drawing in the private sector, then he would be a failure as a minister, because being a minister is all about sacrifices and service to the people and nation. Our national servicemen make sacrifices when doing their two-year stints in the uniformed services. Ministers are expected to do likewise for the well-being of our nation.

    Mr Seah Yam Meng claims that society should offer euthanasia as an alternative to reduce the high rate of elderly suicide.  However, euthanasia should not be legalised because it is just a glorified form of suicide. 카지노사이트주소 Just because it involves an official document and a doctor does not change the fact that someone is in such a dark and lonely place that he has decided his life is not worth living. We have to work on creating a community that will help people find a reason to keep living, not give them a quick "solution" to end all their problems. By legalising euthanasia, the responsibility is pushed on to the person in question, not the people around who could make a change. 바카라사이트주소 This would make euthanasia seem ideal to the uninvolved because this places them on a moral high ground.   It is an easier way to deal with illness and suffering. Last, it is illogical to compare putting down animals with euthanasia for humans. Animals do not have a say in ending their lives, their owners do. Often, we focus on our pain instead of how we can come out of it stronger. 안전놀이터 I cannot imagine the pain that terminally ill people go through, but I believe that if they put up a good fight, they would be an inspiration to others who are battling the same illness to keep fighting. To fight is to take a gamble on your life, but to not do so is to guarantee death.

    It was disheartening to learn that Singapore's plastic recycling rate lags far behind other developed countries. 카지노사이트  Many Singapore retailers, supermarket chains and customers may not easily change their behaviour over single-use plastic bags in the near future. To help reduce the use of plastic bags, the National Environment Agency (NEA) could financially reward retailers that give incentives to customers who bring their own bags. Retailers will be thus able to offset the cost of giving more monetary rewards, and more customers will be interested in bringing their own bags. 온라인카지노 Retailers could impose a small fee of 10 cents to 20 cents on each customer who wants to use plastic bags for their purchases. This fee will make customers think twice before using plastic bags, especially for small purchases that can be easily taken away. 온라인바카라   The NEA could also reward or recognise retailers that use biodegradable bags or make an effort in their business practices to reduce single-use plastics. I hope all the stakeholders will make a real effort to reduce plastic usage and protect our wonderful garden city.

    Some say that the rich or richly paid are not likely to be corrupt. Not really. Many drug lords and politicians who have fingers in their national coffers are, as the Chinese saying goes, "snakes that are so avaricious that they even attempt to swallow an elephant". 바카라사이트         The intrinsic value of a Singapore dollar - the value of the plastic and ink that make up the dollar - should be lower than its currency value. But, the intrinsic value of a person is his innate character. It should be higher than the values of his title and his pay. A learned Roman refused to serve his emperor and was reduced to eating porridge, considered a poor man's food. Someone taunted him, saying: 인터넷카지노  "If you know how to serve Caesar you don't have to eat porridge."   He replied: "If you know how to eat porridge, you don't have to serve Caesar." Once, I was surprised that a millionaire was caught for financial corruption. "Didn't he have enough?" I exclaimed. My wife, who overheard me, said: "What do you know? You have never even smelled a million!" 인터넷바카라 Good point. If I already had a million, would I be practising the philosophy of one of my very rich students who once told me: "Sir, you can never have too much money." A really great man is one who, while serving Caesar, also knows how to eat only rice or even porridge, if necessary. Such integrity is a rarity.

    Just wondering why there's no real coverage or conversation on today's massive DDoS attack? Having to scour the other parts of the 안전놀이터 Internet for news and updates which I would have expected The Verge to automatically and masterfully cover. #wassup

    I'm usually not a fan of most of Apples products, but sometimes you have to take a step back and admire some of the results of the decisions they make. 카지노사이트주소 AirPods... Well IMO they look goofy as hell, and probably fall out of half the populations ears. However MKBHD said in his last video...more so proclaimed he sees them everywhere, and they are most likely the most popular wireless earbuds. Is he right? I don't know. Maybe. However, it is pretty easy to notice AirPods from any other BT earbud. They stand out.  Most earbuds are black little things nestled in your ears that don't stand out to a normal person in public. They all look alike. But...not AirPods. They are white little sticks coming out of your ears. They scream, "Notice Me." It is probably why they don't even come in a black colorway. 온라인바카라 I'm sure Apple did this on purpose, because guess what? Tech YouTubers saying they are the most popular thing ever, is just free advertising. It'sactually kind of genius. Me personally, I don't see them much over here in California. But I think many folks maybe too embarrassed to just wearing walking around, because they look crazy. But then again all BT headsets kind of do.

    Is the "Apple slowing down older phones" a US thing? I ask because I have a 6s Plus, nearly 2 yrs old, and it does not seem slow to me. My kids use my old and battered 5s for games and YouTube, and while it is clearly slower than my 6s it is perfectly usable. Prior to this I used an old 4s, that to me remained perfectly fine until I upgraded. 인터넷바카라 Also, most of the people I know and work with have iPhones (a few even used a 3GS or whatever it was called, until about 6 months ago) and I have never heard any complaints of slow phones from them either. Yet forums and articles are full of slow iPhone stories. I hail from little Denmark, so I wonder if that’s anything to do with this discrepancy?

    As a result of Jeff’s recent forum post on iMessage, I’ve been thinking a lot about iOS; more specifically, about its native applications. 인터넷카지노 My smartphone history consists of various different OSs and Phones [Palm Treo => iPhone 3G => Windows Phone(s) => Galaxy Note 5 => iPhone 7], so I’ve had a chance to try all of (what at the time was) the Big Three. In hindsight, my decision to leave any particular platform was fairly petty/short-sighted: I left Palm because I thought the iPhone was cooler I left the iPhone because I preferred Windows Phone’s (and/or Zune’s) design principles I left Windows Phone because I wanted Snapchat I left Android because of battery issues/how it managed background applications But there were only 2 reasons I switched back to an iPhone: Official battery case (a friend showed me his and I loved it) iMessage (a friend of mine is colorist AF and hates seeing green bubbles) 인터넷바카라 But aside from iMessage and the case, there is nothing that’s making me stick with iOS. I use a few of the other default apps (Phone, Weather, Clock, Photos, Camera, TestFlight*), but every platform has their own incarnation of those and I could survive without them. So my question to the forum is: what are the (other reasons) users stick with iOS? What applications do you prefer over the default iOS applications? And if you prefer certain iOS default apps, which ones and why are they better the competition offered in the App Store?
