I had to punctuate the headline with an exclamation mark because this is as exciting as it gets in Singapore – even though no weapons were used and no one was injured. The robbery happened at Standard Chartered’s Holland Village branch at 11:25 am.

The 36-year-old bus driver has been arrested in relation to the case.

Well, sort of. SUSHI TAKEWAKA, a 28-year-old sushi restaurant from the famous Tsukiji market in Tokyo, has arrived in Singapore along with 15 other Japanese food shops at the new Japan Food Town in Wisma Atria. Itadakimasu!

5) 18 people die from fatigue and accidents in a 35-hour traffic jam in Indonesia

This happened from Jakarta to Tegal as commuters tried to head back to their hometowns to celebrate Eid, which marks the end of Ramadan.
