I watched the season premiere of 《我.董.你》 (#BeMyGuest) with my family, even though I was 13,655km away in San Jose. It was 6am where I was, and 9pm in Singapore when my son started streaming the show over Insta Live. I could hear the laughter from my family in the background and it felt like I was there watching with them.
The one-hour program covered stories of my family and my work.
We even had surprise guest join our little family screening…
mrbrown has a chat with His Excellency Scott Wightman, the British High Commissioner to Singapore, at his official residence, Eden Hall.

Kim Huat looks at factors that affect Singapore's egg situation, exploring the four pillars of food security: availability, access, utilization, and stability. What does Singapore do, moving forward? How does the domestic politics of Malaysia impact the self-sufficiency of our tiny island nation and the availability of pomfret for Chinese New Year reunion dinners? What are the threats to our egg supply and how do we bear the yolk of our vulnerabilities? This, and other deep academic thoughts, by Kim Huat, Singapore’s foremost expert in being hungry all the time.
Kim Huat muses on the Singapore-Malaysia ILS spat over the airspace near Seletar Airport and Pasir Gudang, and takes the Malaysian Minister of Transport, Anthony Loke Siew Fook, to task for his (lack of) understanding of the Instrument Landing System, and basic aviation principles.
Kim Huat also looks at the nuances between using Obstacle Assessment Surfaces (OAS) and Obstacle Limitation Surfaces (OAS) to determine safe minimum heights for approach, departure and circling procedures, as per international aviation standards.
Kim Huat goes on to dwell on the operational measures that can be taken to minimize the impact of the tall buildings and creatures, on aeronautical safety.
