Skechers Electric Run Singapore

The Skechers Electric Run Singapore 2014 took place last Friday and Saturday evening. It is not your usual run. In fact, I wouldn’t even consider it a run. More like a party that happen along a 5km route with lots of dancing and selfie. It was a colourful run event filled with beautiful courses like Rainbow Road and Electro Rainforest. Participants dress themselves up with wigs, bodypaints, LED glasses and lightsticks.

Petition to shut down STOMP

Here is something that you most likely won’t see on STOMP or any SPH newspaper/websites. A petition asking SPH to shut down STOMP is gaining widespread support from Singaporeans. The petition currently has more than 15,000 signatures and growing.


I think a lot of us have enough of the rubbish on STOMP. Everyone still remember that STOMP article about SMRT door remaining open while moving. We thought things will improve after that. It didn’t. If you go to STOMP now, you still can see lots of irresponsible reporting. The site give Citizen Journalism a bad name. It promote false information, hate speech and xenophobia. Recently, STOMP started a “Don’t be a Social Media Idiot” campaign to encourage readers to shame “idiots” on social media platform like Facebook.

I think Singaporeans had enough. It is time we demand SPH to shut down STOMP and stop tarnishing the name of Citizen Journalism.

This petition should have been started long time ago. But I guess it is never too late to start. You can sign the online petition here.
