As it was mentioned that it was a "flyer" I have to assume that it was probably just that. An insert that was not part & parcel to the Today paper but an advertising 'flyer'. therefore, it wouldn't be in the Today Online edition. But you probably never get the today newspaper when they are given away at the bus stops like lots of us that use BMWs for transportation.

No I didn't want to take issue. I genuinely wanted to know how HPB can promote Mc D :)

I found this, that gives some clue:

"Healthier" is relative. 500 calories of rubbish is healthier than 1000 calories of rubbish, so its a healthier choice, :lol:

Isn't that rag just more mind control freedom of choice propaganda?

Having said that, I try to pick up the Saturday edition as it has NY Times articles.

I am also a BMW person now, I don't take the newspapers because I travel during peak hours and trains are sardine cans. Sometimes, there is no space to even lift my hands to scratch my nose, leave alone hold a newspaper in my hand :)

I learned, years ago, how to read the newspaper the Japanese sardine can way (Singapore trains ARE NOT Sardine cans by any stretch of the imagination). If you take the time to learn that, the trains are not bad and you can read easily. I also ride during peak hours and fully across the island twice a day to boot.

I ride the trains from jurong east in the evenings at around 6~6:30 all the way to the NE line up through to Serangoon. Wish that it was that crowded and they couldn't lift their arms! :o

Are you calling all Singaporeans "Sardines"? Coz that's what it sounds like to me.

I feel another Anton Casey witch hunt coming on.

can't agree more! I eat at Macca's compulsorily once every three months to remind myself I shouldn't eat here.
It's usually after a few beers though, and then its a large cheeseburger and fries.

Milkshakes and icecreams are reasonably good and cheap too.

Yeah, not exactly sardine cans, but still, I never get to sit even though Tampines is just the 2nd stop in the EW line. Singaporeans are so kiausu that they will go backwards to pasir ris, just so that they can get to sit :) So the seats are already full, by the time the train gets to Tampines and then in couple of stops the train is jam packed that you will be lucky to stand in a comfortable position and able to hold something to support. I feel much more comfortable to browse on my 4" screen cell phone with one hand and hold on to something with the other hand.

I never sit. Don't try to. But if a seat is available I grab it only to give to the first person who looks like they might need it more than me. Most of those are much younger, but they don't know that. Oh, they do the going back a station to get a seat at Serangoon going back to Kovan for the same reason. I don't care. I rode offshore workboats for 20 years so the trains are smooth by comparison. I rarely hold on to anything at all as it not really necessary if you know how to stand properly. In fact, most of standing riders don't hold on to anything. If I'm not reading my paper, I usually can be found reading the news via a Galaxy Tab 10.1 which is about the same size as my newspaper when reading on a crowded train.

I'd rather pay twice the price of a McD burger for a Subway. And fill it up with as much green as the Sandwich Artist can push in.

Would be interesting to see that HPB flyer with that McD bit.

I haven't seen any subsequent flyer but you can still find it online.....

As mentioned earlier, just type in : eathealthy.sg

Click on "View all promotions"

And it's third from the top ~!
