HONG KONG'S ABSURD BAN ON ELECTRICAL BIKES AND SCOOTERS AND SLAPPING JAIL TERMS OF 3 MONTHS ON OFFENDERS
Oil your chain. This will improve your pedaling efficiency and if you have a motor that powers through the cranks of your bike (Panasonic or Bosch for example) it will improve your motor’s efficiency too. After you oil your chain let it sit for a few minutes before you wipe off the excess oil with a rag.
I hope these tips help you to improve your electric bike range. The best way is to implement these tips today and make them a habit.
Do you have any questions on these tips? Do you have some electric bike range tips of your own that you would like to share with the PEV SINGAPORE community? Please leave them in the comment section below.
For the sake of discussion, in the first 2 categories we will be discussing the people here in their natural state. It means no make up and no national costumes and national dress style. The people will be compared as they are totally without makeup and just looking at you directly without speaking.

Observation Point of view : Having been living in Asia and being an avid traveler i had the fortune of meeting people from every nation. Assuming all three groups of women stand in front of me facing me in their most natural form i am unable and neither will anyone be able to find distinct features that will tell us where these women are go
Scienctifically Speaking : The world Genome project having the biggest collection of human DNA now have came to the conclusion that historically there were only 2 distinct groups in Asia. The Chinese and the Koreans. Japanese DNA were the result of China's migration. If you Look at the Chinese people in China. Those who live above Shanghai and those who live below...for discussion purpose i will call them Northern Chinese and Southern Chinese. Northern and Southern Chinese have very very different DNA and facial features. The Northern Chinese shares very similar Characteristics with their cousins from Bhutan, Korea and Japan. However the southern are very much more in DNA family of people from Vietnam, Thailand and Burma. The Koreans themselves are distinctly also found with a huge amount of DNA pointing them to the Mongols, thus their puffy eyes and mongol features share much similarity with the mongols of today.
Street smart Observation : I have been able to distinguish only the girls apart by one aspect. Their makeup. Chinese, Koreans and Japanese have all very very different make up sense.
Lips: more fancy or intense colors than the two other countries. Chinese like extremes and dont promote the Korean plain coral lip bar or Japanese girly pink gloss. They would rather get full bloody or dark lips with lipsticks, or some times fancy colors like yellow. Japanese want plump lips, always airy to fizzy. Though they use lighter colors than Kor and Cn, it still stays feminine with dominance of pink, coral and sometimes blue.Discussion: Japanese women use more products than China but less than Korea for the makeup. From kawai manga girl to the Ginza Tokyoite there is a huge gap as well, but as seen before many trends are developping on this market too. And like Korea men make up cases increase…
Complexion: pale to ivory white skin, not really dewy like Kor or porcelaine like Jp, something where the notions of translucent and limpidity are the keywords and make the difference. It means skin should look fully hydrated which Chinese will consider then as a luminous to glowy face, whereas those 2 words covers other definitions in Jp and Kor. They call it princess or empress-toned face skin, in reference to the past aristocracy of China. Contrarily to foundation and cushion or tinted moisturisers, the use of the blush seems less predominant as giving colors in the middle of the cheeks seem less important to them. Japanese women are looking for a natural, fresh and floral look, very feminine, sometimes judged as ‘ innocent’. Base makeup is a flawless porcelaine skin tone, not luminous to dewy like Kor and Cn but definitely more clear matte.Blush go from pink to red and generally concentrated to emphasize the volume of the center of the cheek. Key words are volumized 3D face and baby skin. Recently we also talked about low and gym skin (see article before).
Eyes: Japanese women like Kor and Cn want bigger eyes too, mainly named as doll eyes, with not an almond shape like Kor but a circular aspect. Then black eyeliner or pencil trait is very strong like China. They dont put foundation on the under-eye and like to put sometimes a false glittery tear, to make it look saggy, no aegyosal. Eyebrows are short and thick, and edge-bended too like Korea. Eyelashes should look very volumized and long, sometimes in a dramatic aspect quite inexistant in Korea. They love to use eye-shadows but very lightly to just suggest some color to the eye, not too much. Color range is too broad, more various than the two other countries.
Welcome to SG's most haunted roads....have fun....ride safe
1. Sembawang Road
As far as we know, Sembawang Road is where pontianaks (female vampires) gather, but the hot spot is at the recently renovated Sembawang Park. Here’s a story shared by a friend of mine: Her younger brother, who apparently has the ability to “see” otherworldly objects, used to cycle around the park in the day. Once, he decided to cycle there late at night with my friend. Everything went on swimmingly, until he abruptly made a U-turn and, in a hurried whisper, told my friend to follow suit. Instantly my friend knew something was amiss. Without a word, the two siblings cycled all the way home. Once in the safe confines of their apartment, he told my friend he saw a pontianak perched on one of the many trees in the park, staring at them as they cycled past her.
Oh, that’s not all there is to Sembawang Road. Further into the northernmost part of Singapore is a former Malay village known as Kampong Wak Hassan, where sightings of the ghost of an old man have been reported. We didn’t feel particularly spooked by this area (phew), but we did gasp in awe at the rows of bungalows lining the streets.
2. Old Upper Thomson Road (leading to Upper Peirce Reservoir Park)
Why couples like to go to this park for some late-night hanky-panky, I would never understand. In fact, the drive along Old Upper Thomson Road was so tremendously terrifying, we decided not to venture further for fear of peeing our panties! No, really, just look at this seemingly neverending road to the devil’s lair.
Incidentally, this long road that leads to Upper Peirce Reservoir Park is known as Devil’s Bend because it is where many accidents have occurred. Some drivers have claimed to see mysterious white figures floating among the trees, though I must say the chilling night mist definitely ups the scare ante.
3. Kheam Hock Road
So, we were informed by a friend that Kheam Hock Road – the part that leads to Bukit Brown Cemetery – is one kind of horrifying. Let me just put it out here that no number of warnings would prepare you for the impending scene of utmost horror that would haunt you for the rest of your life. It was all fine and dandy when we entered Kheam Hock Road, which is lined with beautiful houses. Halfway through, we even wondered if we were on the wrong road! And then we came to a tunnel, as pictured above. We had no idea what was beyond the tunnel, or if we would even find ourselves lost in another realm forever.
As it turned out, what awaited us was something equally hair-raising. The “Caution” signs ought to serve as fair warning – if you look closely, there are actually tombstones lining the sides of the road.
My fellow partners-in-crime and I, spooked out of our wits, remained uncharacteristically silent throughout this stretch of road. Why? Because the three of us felt like something was watching us. No. Joke.
4.South Buona Vista Road (leading to Kent Ridge Park)
The section of South Buona Vista Road that leads to Kent Ridge Park is infamously coined 99 Turns due to the many sharp bends (13, to be exact) throughout this winding road. Because of the harrowing bends, it used to be a popular spot for illegal drag racing – and according to a taxi driver, many drag racers lost their lives on 99 Turns. We could not imagine driving any faster than 40km/h along the hairpin curves, let alone speeding!
But Kent Ridge Park is where weird shit happens. We held our breath as we drove up the insanely steep slope to the park; with only our car’s headlights illuminating the narrow road ahead, I couldn’t help imagining the worst. Like an army of Malay Regiment soldiers marching across us.
You see, Kent Ridge Park is where the Malay Regiment and the Japanese Imperial Army fought during World War II, which turned out to be one of Singapore’s last and fiercest battles. Some people who visit the park at night for whatever reason claim to hear the Malay Regiment soldiers shouting instructions at each other. Us? We stayed put in our car and blasted rock music. Singapore Paranormal Investigators, we are clearly not.
[Note: As you can probably guess, we had had enough of exploring creepy roads after Kent Ridge Park scared the crap out of us, hence the Instagram user photos for the remaining two roads.]
5. Changi Coastal Road (Note: Don't fuck around on this one....countless deaths and many to come we are sure
Flanked by trees and excellent for watching planes land and take off, this long stretch of road makes for a wonderfully scenic drive. It is also where many fatal accidents have taken place. A friend told me he and a few buddies were cycling on the road at around 3am many years ago, when one of his buddies, M, suddenly lost control and lurched forward. M started shouting at the group, telling them it wasn’t funny and that he could have gotten seriously injured. When his anger was met with befuddled looks, M turned white – he swore he felt someone grab his shoulder and smack his head earlier, causing him to lose control of his bicycle. According to my friend, that encounter scarred M so badly, he actually sold off his bike!
6. Old Choa Chu Kang Road/Lim Chu Kang Road/Jalan Bahar
Obviously there is no need to explain why these roads are said to be haunted. The following encounters were shared by a friend’s father, W, who is a taxi driver. One quiet night, W was driving in the north when he saw an old man sitting in the middle of the road. Taking pity on the old man, W asked him to get in for a free ride to wherever he wanted to go. You probably guessed the destination – Choa Chu Kang Cemetery. W, who isn’t easily spooked, jovially agreed to drive the old man to the cemetery. Upon nearing the destination, the old man repeatedly told W to not tell anyone where the old man was heading. That was when W began to feel a tad uneasy. Before the old man alighted, he told W to take the exit on the right because the path on the left “was not meant for humans”. Suffice it to say, W sped off (on the right) after the old man alighted.
W told us another story, this time involving his friend who’s also a taxi driver. His friend once picked up a malay lady who wanted to go to Choa Chu Kang Cemetery. When they arrived at the destination, he turned around … only to see a stone tablet in place of the lady!
