Hello everyone! Sorry for the lack of updates. As we’ve said earlier on, we’re going through a major facelift just to make Oops! something that gets everyone talking. We know you’ve been waiting for so long just to see the next issue of Oops! coming out (we can’t help it that it’s once per semester, yo. We are after all, students) but rest assured, Oops! returns on the 12th December with yet another big bang.

Meanwhile, a new and improved Oops! website is on its way. Look out for it! I’ve taken a sneak peek at it, and it looks awesome. =) So happy waiting, have fun finishing your assignments and treasure your weekend!

It’s simply incredible that there are so many ways to say ‘Hello’ in the world, and on the 26th of September, a little part of the world set up shop outside Singapore Polytechnic’s Main Library. Enter Fusion, a vibrant Cultural Fair organized by students and lecturers from the Foreign Language Learning Center (FLLC) to increase the cultural awareness of SP students, displaying five cultures and languages offered by the Department of Language and Communication.

To kick off the new semester, Oops! welcomed students back to school with ‘lollipop giveaways’! As part of the publicity, SP students also posed as ‘human mannequins’ who were seen holding on to gigantic Oops! teaser magazines in every food court. Definitely a show-stopping performance!

DJ Alec Empire, the experimental German artist will showcase his finest works in a 3-hour set at the Alternation party at DXO on 20th September. He last played here at Zouk in 1996. Empire was just on tour with NINE INCH NAILS right before coming to Singapore.

The founder of Digital Hardcore Records and Atari Teenage Riot (ATR), Empire is probably known as the most controversial electronic artist in the world.

His works span different genres of music, though he is more well-known for digital hardcore, a term coined by Empire himself to describe the sound made by ATR. Digital hardcore fuses elements of punk and electronica characterized with Empire’s trademark, spoken/shouted English vocals.

Oops! did a phone interview with Alec Empire in Germany, where he just finished a great show in Munich on 6th Sept at 3am, German time.

What a blast!

The Student Personal Development Programme (SDPD) is held twice a year during every semester break. This installment of the programme marks the 30th run of the SDPD which was first launched in November 1992.

Each run of the SDPD features 70 different classes such as nail painting, cooking classes, horse-riding sessions all the way to ski classes and is designed to enrich students’ life at the Polytechnic. Through the SPDP, students become more socially competent by developing their civic and cultural awareness and adopting healthy lifestyles. With these life skills, they would be better equipped as they graduate from SP to the working world.

Oops! managed to be part of this run of the SDPD and attended two classes where we went skiing as well as cable wakeboarding.
