Singapore Chinese Girls School comes out on top at the 2012 NBA 2K Ultimate B-Ball competition

Last year, 2K Asia started the NBA 2K Ultimate B-Ball competition for Singapore schools, and this year the competition ballooned in size as there were twice as many school entered, for a total of 27 schools.

The winners this year were from Singapore Chinese Girls School, and the team consisted of Woon Wei Jing, Chloe Alphonso, Charmaine Koh, Ong Li Ping, Bernice Yeo, Ceres Suwe and Rachel Mok. They beat out other schools like Anglo Chinese School (Barker Road) and New Town Secondary School.

The competition consists of three events:

  1. Five-on-five full court basketball
  2. One-on-one NBA 2K13 quick-match
  3. Team cheerleading

The winner is decided by an overall score accumulated by competing in the three events, and the SCGS girls won with 87 points and took back a whopping S$10,000 of prize money for their school!

Not a bad way to spend an afternoon, if you think about it. Who says videogames and sports aren’t good activities for students?

Better than recent Superbowl half-time shows

If you only watch one football half-time show a year, make it this one. It’s a combination of great music and showmanship!


A working replica Akira bike

The first anime I ever saw was the famous Akira, and obviously as a kid, the big thing I remember from that was how awesome Kaneda’s bike was.

The other thing that made an impact, was of course Kaori’s naked anime breasts when they ripped her shirt off for no apparent reason, but that’s irrelevant.

Two awesome toys every kid wanted: that bike, and that giant laser cannon.

 

Anyway, a guy named Masashi Teshima has dropped about $120k and 7 years of his life to make this dream come true, and he’s built himself a replica of Kaneda’s bike. It doesn’t just look like it, but it works too and he’ll be riding across Japan to raise money for charity.

Vroom vroom!

It’s awesome, and it’s definitely worth the 7 years and $120k! Click on the link below for more pics and videos of the bike in action!
