Amazon Prime Day 2021 isn’t set to arrive until June, but that doesn’t mean we can’t start embracing what we expect to be the retailer’s most exciting event to date with a little bit of harmless speculation. For starters, it’s safe to assume that Prime Day 2021 will see more discounts than ever before. How do we know? Because each Prime Day is bigger and better than the last — duh! So, Prime Day 2021. What’s it about? Well, it’s far too early to say with absolute certainty what we’ll see. Heck, we don’t even know for certain when it will be (though we have a pretty good idea — more on that in a bit). One thing is almost for certain, though: While Amazon will be at the heart of Prime Day 2021, other retailers will also be throwing their hats into the ring. What happened on Prime Day 2020? Before we can look forward to Prime Day 2021, we first need to look back to Prime Day 2020 — an anomaly in the history of the event. Amazon was left with no choice but to reschedule the … [Read more...] about Prime Day Deals 2021: When is it, and what can we expect?

Fruit exports to the US thrive Vietnam’s fruit exports reached about 1 billion USD in the first quarter of this year, up 10 percent compared to the same period last year. Of the figure, exports to the US - Vietnam’s 4cond-largest fruit and vegetable market - accounted for 30 percent. The market’s potential is expected to grow in the time to come. Growth is expected to continue in the future due to increasing market demand. The US is Vietnam’s second-largest fruit market, after China. It imports about 150 million USD worth of fruit each year. While the figure is rather modest, it is still significant in creating a driving force for fruit growers to improve the quality to meet the requirements of other demanding markets. Greater profit margins will create fiercer competition in the market. The price of Vietnamese fruit, meanwhile, is always higher than in countries such as Thailand. Prices are expected to fall in the time to come, though, as more enterprises invest in … [Read more...] about VIETNAM BUSINESS NEWS APRIL 29
It’s no secret that Singapore is the secret hidden base for many things Star Wars. It was here that Lucasfilm set up its Southeast Asia office, where Lucasarts had a mini resurgence, and where Dave Filoni kickstarted the early seasons of The Clone Wars animated series. So it’s no surprise that hidden in the Glasgow School of Art Singapore is a communication design teacher who is, among the local Star Wars community at least, better known for his Star Wars artwork featuring some of the most iconic characters from the franchise. And with Star Wars Day on May 4th (May the Fourth) fast approaching, what better way to celebrate a nation’s love for a galaxy far far away, than with artist Jon Chan’s upcoming exhibition of his Star Wars art pieces at the ArtScience Museum. Never strictly copying what he sees, Chan’s Star Wars art teases and questions other possibilities should a character or a scene go differently. His decision to stray off-canon and play with possibilities is to … [Read more...] about May the 4th spotlight: Singapore Star Wars Artist, Jon Chan
Kindly Share This Story: By Azu Ishiekwene EVERYONE has their meal of the day, and mine happens to be dinner. Having dinner, for me, is a ritual, but one that has evolved over the years. Back in the day, I would not dare have dinner without first taking my bath. My mother said it was “unclean” to eat before brushing your teeth in the morning and taking your bath; or to have dinner before taking your bath, as if you had just been rescued from the pits or planned to eat with all parts of your body. I didn’t understand it but asking Mama too many questions was not the way we were brought up. You just did what you were told as you were told – or risked Mama beating sense into your head. As I grew older and became more independent, I found my way around Mama’s maze of inexplicable rules. I just followed my heart. That included discarding the maternal canon of bathing before dinner; but believe me, I still keep short hair because she said long hair – … [Read more...] about ‘Follow me to the market…’
Coping with the loss of a beloved pet can be tough. What makes it worse is when us paw-rents are unavailable in the animal's dying moments to provide it comfort and care. I'd read somewhere that owners often feel guilt and responsibility for their pet's death, largely due to how reliant these animals are on us for their survival. My pet rabbit died two years ago when he was six. Based on online resources I looked up, a house rabbit that's well taken care of can live for up to 12 years. That, of course, did nothing to make me feel better. But what bothered more about his passing was that he'd died when none of the people he was close to was around. My husband and I, along with my parents and extended family, had gone on a week-long trip to Japan at the time. We had left him in the care of our new helper of a few weeks. We provided her with clear instructions on feeding schedules, thinking that all would be fine. Mid-way into our trip, however, we got a text bearing bad news … [Read more...] about I hired an ‘animal communicator’ to investigate my pet’s mysterious death
