2) Buy alcohol with SingPass from vending machines.

Can minors borrow their parents' phone and purchase from such machines?

With the abundance of 24 hours convenience stalls such as 7-eleven, Cheers around, these machines may encourage possible abuse given that it is not manned by anyone. Besides vending, machines will mean that alcohol is allowed 24/7. This contravenes the existing Liquor Control act where it states drinking is banned in public places from 1030pm to 7am and shops are not allowed to sell within this time.

3) 580,000 SIA Krisglyer and PPS members affected by the external data leak. 

Members of its KrisFlyer and PPS programmes have had their membership number, tier status and, in some cases, membership name compromised.

You may not be allowed to travel, but there are still risks.
