This Is Home Singapore Flag SG50

From a little fishing village to a metropolis with modern infrastructure and services, Singapore has come a long way some 50th years ago when the then Prime Minister Mr Lee Kuan Yew declared the country’s independence. Yet as someone who grew up in the developing years of Singapore, I never experienced the troubled times of the MacDonald House bombing in ... Read More »

84 Medals

pco jul 15

What an exciting SEA Games it was with Team Singapore winning 84 gold medals and coming in 2nd place in the medal tally was pretty awesome! There were a few of us at the Sports Hub covering the event and doing our best to show you a different side to the games. For me personally it has been a journey ... Read More »

When I see You Again…


It is never easy to lose someone. A family member, someone we look up to and our best friend. Emotions run crazy and we hit the wall of despair. It can take time to sink in but when it finally hit, it hits like a hurricane. I remember when my grandmother passed away when I was in primary school, I ... Read More »

Meeting Yasemin Arslan GameStart 2014

It never gets boring here at POPCulture Online and for me, it is very true as the past month was one filled with many activities. There is a joke among the team that POPCulture Online is what keeps us sane from our day jobs and it cannot be truer for me. Work has been piling up to a point that ... Read More »

During the Singapore Toys Games and Comics Convention, our Editor Elliott Danker was also the host of the and during the event we couldn’t help but take not of a few of his stupid moments where as a host, he’d make a fool of himself to make others laugh.

Happy 49th Birthday Singapore

editors aug

It’s August, a very special month for us Singaporeans and this year many things about being Singaporean hit me. For starters it was the need to go back for reservist, a 10 year post National Service obligation we have as Singaporean males. Much debate has been about the new improved IPPT testing system, be it criticism or praise, I feel ... Read More »

More Then Meets The Eyes


I remember when I first saw the transformers movie (the old school animated one in 1986) when I was a young kid. I actually cried when Prime died and cheered with Hot Rod kicked butt to earn the right to be the new Prime. Sure there was some sympathy for the Ultra Magnus who maybe was intended to be the ...

Hollywood Invasion


It’s been quite a month, with so many big events occurring I’m actually longing for a nice holiday which hopefully I will get at the end of June. I normally don’t get very starstruck but when I met Hugh Jackman for our interview, I was quite taken with his mannerisms. I’m walking into the room and he’s already standing with ... Read More »

The PC Master Race


There has been a lot of talk on this and recently I too have been drawn into this debate of PC Gaming versus Console Gaming.  Sorry Apple fans but it has been widely proven that Macs are at the bottom of the ladder when it comes to games. So back to the debate of who is better and well looking ... Read More »

Summer is upon us

I recently wrote a blog post about getting away and recharging, which I think is so important in the stressful world we live in. Then while I was on holiday I found myself actually watching 2 movies. I found the time to watch Saving Mr Banks and Monuments Men while in Perth and I think it really reflects on my ... Read More »
