i can't figure out why the local broadsheet enjoys including this information in local news.

who cares what size of flat the couple who lost their 2 sons had. does it make it matter?

this housing type and area quoting occurs regularly and i'm annoyed and puzzled at the same time whenever i read it.

Same reason why you have to put your race in forms just to be able to go kayaking? They like labels here so much, you'd think that Dymo made a fortune in this country during their heyday.

I love Dymos and would use it extensively as a kid. I would dymo my name on my personal book collection that was hardly handled by other people. Wonder if it is because of my Singaporeaness :-k . My kids also get trigger happy with their P label machine until I put a stop to it. Those labels are expensive. :mrgreen:

hahaha fillers or redundant information are something I've never understood as well.

eg. Draw a circle and then divide into two equal halves. :o
