Crazy Rich Asian in wrong country, should migrate

Metro family scion Ong Jenn, who is in jail for attempted drug possession, had an additional sentence of two years and two months meted out to him on Thursday (Apr 25).

The 43-year-old received the extra jail time for one charge of consuming cannabis and two counts of possessing the drug

When he finally gets released, time to emigrate to Canada or California where he can smoke cannabis to his heart’s content. But will he be allowed in given his criminal record? He can argue that he’s a fighter against repression, like Amos (Remember him?). Will Maruah support him? Human rights kay pohs don’t do “fixers” and “jihadists”, but they might do rich druggies.

In Yet another Crazy Rich Asian druggie has gd lawyer, I blogged about how Metro scion Ong Jenn had a good lawyer that got him off on a lesser charge than what the prosecution wanted.

The prosecution appealed saying he should be convicted of abetting to traffic drug. But a High  Court judge dismissed the appeal against the conviction and against Ong’s reduced charges, to rule that he should not be convicted of abetting to traffic drugs.

But as for the prosecution’s appeal against the sentence, the judge agreed that the should jail term extended by a year to three years.

Looks like Crazy Rich Asians want to flaunt their drug taking habits and their ability to get the best lawyers to get them out of trouble.

Last week we had this: Crazy Rich Asian’s excuse for taking drugs. Her lawyer argued unsuccessfully that her kid’s and her parents divorce made her into an acid head. She’s appealing the sentence.

Yesterday we learnt that another Crazy Rich Asian consumed about 350g of illegal drugs a month (Morocco Mole tells me that that’s a lot) with a High Court judge pointing out that the supply he had and planned to get would have lasted him more than two months based on this consumption.

More from our constructive, nation-building media

A High Court judge on Monday (Oct 15) dismissed the prosecution’s appeal against Metro family scion Ong Jenn, agreeing with a District Court ruling that he should not be convicted of abetting to traffic in drugs.

Ong, a business development manager with Metro Holdings, is serving a two-year jail sentence after pleading guilty to two counts of attempted possession of controlled drugs.

Arguing that the 43-year-old should be convicted of the original charges of abetting to traffic controlled drugs, the prosecution appealed against his reduced charges as well as the sentence imposed on those reduced charges.

On May 12 last year, Ong admitted to the attempted possession of controlled drugs charges after a six-day trial. Back then, District Judge Jasvender Kaur agreed with Ong’s argument that the drugs — 92.68g of cannabis and 385.1g of cannabis mixture — were solely for his own consumption.

She caused the lamp post near the traffic light to fall, blocking the opposite side of the road.

Who she?

The socialite daughter of the founders of luxury watch retailer The Hour Glass was sentenced to 22 months’ jail and a S$1,000 fine by the District Court on Thursday (Oct 11) for drug consumption and driving without due care.

Audrey Tay has also been disqualified from driving for 18 months. She is fined in default of a one-week imprisonment for the traffic offence.

In August, the 45-year-old pleaded guilty to four counts of consuming and possessing ketamine as well as for driving without due care.

Five other charges, which include consumption and possession of drugs such as methamphetamine and ketamine, were taken into consideration for sentencing.

As she has money

She is appealing against the sentence and has been granted bail. Her bail Pleading for leniency on Thursday, defence lawyer Eugene Thuraisingam said that pyschiatric reports showed that Tay was suffering from depression due to her “oldest daughter’s rejection” of her.

The ST report of the same speech said that he said she was badly affected by her parents’ divorce in 2010.

[T]he Mail on Sunday charts the progress being made by Britain’s first guide horse.

One-year-old Digby – an American Miniature – is still in training but he can already seek out post boxes and push the buttons on pedestrian crossings.

His future owner, a blind BBC journalist from Blackburn, is planning to take Digby to work, to restaurants and even out clubbing.

The horse’s trainer says he’s also a good shopper – but it appears that even Digby has his limits.

“I took him to a department store and he pulled out a pair of khaki trousers and two tops with his lips,” she tells the paper.

“They were lovely, but the price made my eyes water.”

Who juz happens to be low-class, violent and arrogant, most unlike Eleanor Young, even if they are of the same age cohort.

A 73-year-old woman, Shi Ka Yee, will be jailed for four weeks’ and disqualified from driving for six months for punching a motorist who had refused to make way for her red Ferrari. She lost her appeal against the original sentence.

Taz not all

A 73-year-old Ferrari driver who has repeatedly landed in legal trouble over road rage incidents was back in court on Tuesday (14 August).

Shi Ka Yee had been upset over her neighbour having hired workers to trim the branches of a rain tree growing on her Astrid Hill property and removed the key from the crane the workers were using, leaving one of them trapped in its basket. In a separate incident, she attempted to flee from the police in her car after having consumed alcohol while at the Grand Hyatt hotel.

At the State Courts, Shi pleaded guilty to one count of wrongful confinement, one count of committing a rash act to endanger the personal safety of others and one count of drink driving. She agreed to have three similar counts taken into consideration for her sentencing – the date for which has not been set.

KL residents more mature than those in S’pore & Penang

The KPKBing that Crazy Rich Asians (Cheer, not jeer, “Crazy Rich Asians”) is “not S’porean” making S’pore sound so provincial, like Penang. And we have global city pretensions?

The residents of KL have not KPKBed about “Once We Were There” by a Penang-born writer now living with KL, Bernice Chauly, for portraying KL in a really bad light.

The book was the winner of the 2017 Penang Monthly Book Prize:

Journalist Delonix Regia chances upon the cultured and irresistible Omar amidst the upheaval of the Reformasi movement in Kuala Lumpur. As the city roils around them, they find solace in love, marriage, and then parenthood. But when their two-year-old daughter Alba is kidnapped, Del must confront the terrible secret of a city where babies are sold and girls trafficked.

By turns heart-breaking and suspenseful, Once We Were There is a debut novel of profound insight. It is Bernice Chauly at her very best.

Btw, If she had changed the location to Penang, her hometown, she would surely be in trouble. People in Penang are as petty as S’poreans.

Coming back to Crazy Rich Asians, as I see it, it’s free publicity for the tourism industry here as per what the NY Times film critic said.

What’s there not to like? Oh I forget, Kirsten Han, one of those KPKBing “does not wish S’pore well”. Sad.

The Overseas Born Chinese behind it are making money, having fun and being non-PC. Best of all, the OBCs are juz doing what British people from the Indian sub-continent have done: appropriate the term “Asians”.

So let’s cheer them, not jeer at them.

a self-professed Malay Muslim atheist (I kid u not)

“Alfian Sa’at, a prominent Singaporean author, who writes in English and Malay, said in a scathing Facebook post that the film featured “East Asian people purporting to speak for all Asians,” adding that he hoped it would “go away quietly.”

represents the worst of Singapore. It erases minorities, the poor and marginalized. All you get are rich, privileged ethnic Chinese.

had me laughing my head off at the pretentiousness of these and many other S’poreans. Worse were the Pussies branch of the Tamil Tigers KPKBing about the oppression of the Tamils here: as though the judiciary and legal professions are not all Tamil affairs with token participation from Chinese etc

——————-

Asians” means either Indians or Chinese: no one else in Asia is “Asian”

In the UK “British Asians” is another term for people from the Indian sub-continent: Chinese etc not included. They won that right by sheer weight of numbers.

Many yrs ago, a BBC radio “Play of Week” was trialed as a an Ancient Greek comedy with an all-Asian cast. There wasn’t a voice that wasn’t from the sub-continent.

And things have not changed. Recently there was a BBC online article on social attitudes of “British Asians”. All the examples cited were “Mamas”.

Now the Overseas Born Chinese (especially the ABCs) are playing the same game: only Chinese are American Asians. And our very own Tessa Wong is guilty of agreeing with the other OBCs: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-45179503


I have to say that I agree with Calvin Cheng (getting to be a habit**)

A film with the title CRAZY RICH Asians can’t really be trying to hard to be representative of whatnot.

So give the film, the marketing team, the producers, director, writer (More on him soon), actors and production team a break.

Especially as they could have made film in KL, Taipei, any mega city in China, Bangkok, any major Canadian city, San Franciso or LA, not S’pore. Instead, S’pore is getting a great tourist brochure for free: not me but NY Times film critic


More than Rom Com and Bling

[T]he film soars to life, a buoyant, glittering, thoroughly charming romantic comedy. The story of a Chinese-American economics professor who meets her boyfriend’s wealthy family in cosmopolitan Singapore does not reinvent the rom-com. But it uses that formula so gracefully that the movie feels fresh, largely thanks to its flawlessly-cast Asian, Asian-American and Anglo-Asian actors. Beneath its glamorous surface, the film is also thoughtful about ethnic identity, and the push and pull of class and culture: nouveau riche versus old money, personal fulfillment versus duty to family.

http://www.bbc.com/culture/story/20180815-film-review-does-crazy-rich-asians-live-up-to-the-hype


Let’s give the OBCs behind the movie three cheers for making money, lots of money by doing stuff that is not politically correct. And for putting the noses of the local ang moh tua kees, local and foreign PC folk and local Tamil supremacists out of joint.
