Ep32 Are we treating our food hawkers like shit?

With social enterprises poised to take over the hawker industry for the foreseeable future, problems with how our local hawker vendors are generally being treated by said
enterprises, the gahmen, and the customers have come to the forefront.

Can a system where we set the price floor for hawkers, in addition to not having subsidies and increased cost of doing business, continue to function in the modern world? Do Singaporeans deserve to continue to have delicious hawker food at such low prices? Will the hawker culture in general, die off once the current generation retires?

Ep31 Do we need to do anything about inequality in Singapore?

What do the LongKangKitties and schools in December have in common? We got no class! This week we tackle CNA’s regardless of class video, which has certainly ruffled a few feathers within our country.

Ep 28 Should countries let refugees in, or let them die?

The longkang gets split into many camps this week over the refugee issue with our returning guest, Saiful!! How should nations deal with the influx of people fleeing from war or disaster? The answer, as we discovered, is not so straightforward. The kitties grappled with their internal struggles to maintain sovereignty while extending a helping hand.

Ep 27 How should we deal with the talented? (Ben Davis episode)

On this most auspicious of weekends, we bring you the final word on the Ben Davis situation! Returning guest Saiful not only shares his football expertise but also his thoughts on Ben Davis’ deferment rejection and the implication that brings.

Since Davis probably does not have any uncles or cousin to teach him how to deal with the bureaucrats in our army, he should totally listen to 4 random strangers with his interest at heart!

Ep 26 What happens to your HDB after 99 years?

The answer to the question, we don’t know! Problem is, does the government know?! Do the people know, or care? This week we excavate the foundations of the HDB, uncovering the fatal flaws in its construction and design. We discuss how a 99 year lease combined with SERS that only benefits 4% of the population spells disaster, potential solutions to the problem, and if drinking beer really does really make one of our hosts, queer!
