Popcorn and cupcakes Daniel Ong-style

The dispute between former DJ Daniel Ong (above, in white) and his neighbour (inset) is one of the many incidents that happened this month.

SINGAPORE - So have you seen the new trailer for The Iron Man Rises... I mean Iron Man 3? It was kind of depressing.

Where's Black Sabbath? An Iron Man trailer without Black Sabbath is like The Noose without Michelle Chong.

In other words, it's like Random Island, the new Channel 5 sketch comedy series that started last week - not starring Michelle Chong.

But you know what's most depressing? We won't get to see the Iron Man 3 movie until next year, in April.

What are we going to do for entertainment until then?

I mean, the biggest movie opening in Singapore last week was Trouble With The Chair starring Clint Eastwood.

So what if the title is actually Trouble With The Curve? It's a movie about baseball - who cares? If it were Curve It Like Beckham, maybe we'd care.

Then on Monday, who should rescue us from the entertainment recession but Singapore's "blogfather" himself, Mr Brown (whose real name is Lee Kin Mun).

He "shared" a photo on Facebook with the comment: "Ex-DJ and Twelve Cupcakes boss Daniel Ong writes angry letter to neighbour doing renovations."

At the end of the comment, Mr Brown added a word between two asterisks - "popcorn".

The message was clear: Hey, everyone, got show to see!

The photo was of the "angry letter" written by Ong.

Among other things, he wrote that a woman in the neighbourhood had died from the "noise and dust pollution" created by the neighbour's renovations.

Shin Min Daily News later reported that the woman's son said that she was in her 70s and had died because of an illness.

At the end of the letter, Ong also offered an aesthetic critique: "The reno looks terrible. Esp your brown living room wall tiles. Hope the paint job can save it."

Mr Brown was right. This was definitely popcorn-worthy.
