Remember The Real Singapore, the website that was shut down for posting seditious posts? The duo behind the thrashy site had been charged. Ai Takagi is currently serving her 10-month jail term, and her husband, Robin Yang Kaiheng, has also been sentenced to eight months’ jail.

They earned over half a million dollars in advertising revenue in less than three years of running the site, and have even bought and paid off a nice condo unit down under.

Remember Daniel? The poor 2-year-old boy who was abused to death by his own mother and her live-in boyfriend? His real dad was in prison when he was born, and he’s heartbroken at his son’s death. He said, ‘The first time I held him was also the last.’

The even sadder thing is Daniel was never held by his own father. And never knew the warmth and never knew a parent’s unconditional love. RIP, little one.
