MP REJOINS PRIVATE SECTOR, CAN THEY GIVE 100% TO THEIR RESIDENTS?

The voters and your constituencies have given you the mandate you asked for. They voted for you. And we expect you to serve us for whole of the period that you were voted in for. True, every news report in the mainstream media will say you will continue to discharge your MP duties, such as still being available for meet the people sessions, and also attending all the grassroots events. But it is not the same, isn't it? You are no longer just an MP, serving the residents. Now, your paid jobs in the private sector will definitely take precedent. And you cannot now definitely devote 100% of your time to serve the people who voted you, who you promised to serve. Is this fair?

LTA TO CHARGE ERP AT KPE GANTRY, CONGESTION ROLLED OUT TO JUSTIFY CAHRGE

The LTA has decided that more roads are congested and thus, ERP is required to ease these congestions. Either that, or they want more money for motorists to pay, as if not enough had already been paid to the LTA. Anyways, today's reports indicated that the ERP will be activated during morning peak hours at the Kallang-Paya Lebar Expressway (KPE) after Defu Flyover from May 8.

The current rate of $2 for the KPE gantry will apply between 7am and 9.30am on weekdays. This is also on top of the news that the current ERP rates along the stretch on Ayer Rajah Expressway (AYE), after North Buona Vista Road towards Tuas, will be doubled to $2 from May 8.

GAS TARIFFS NEXT UP FOR PRICE HIKE. SUCK BLOOD ONLY

Did not take long for another price increase. For the month of May 1 to July 31, gas tariffs will increase by 2.4%. Gas tariffs are for households who uses the City Gas. The hike was due to a 9.2 per cent increase in fuel costs compared with the previous quarter, which was announced to justify the price increase.

Will 2017 be remembered for the year where everything with a price in Singapore was raised by the authorities? We are only in April, but a slew of price hikes have already been announced. Well, the majority voted for this, right? Wanted to give them the mandate to keep sucking our bloods. They have gone out and did just that.

DBS MISCALCULATED MY DEPOSIT & FAIL TO RECOVER MY HARD-EARNED MONEY

I visited DBS Woodlands Civic Branch to deposit my coins, I had counted last night at home with my family members as witnesses the total $1 coin = $199. After deposited the coins, the figure come out to be $126. After the transaction I took the phone beside the machine and called the bank, I told CS Officer Ms Ellen about what had happened, there was a shortage of $73, I need help. She said she will check with the relevant department. Already the 5th working days, there is still no update.

Why DBS cannot simply do a quick check and restore the missing money? Shouldn't bank services be more efficient than other service industry? Can anyone help to advice?

FT CHARGED $5.80 FOR BEE HOON AT DHOBY XCHANGE: "WAS I CONNED?"

<Reader Contribution by Chantelle>

I bought my lunch from a economical beef hoon stall at Dhoby Xchange the other day. I chose mix of fried rice and fried bee hoon, stir-fried cabbage, seaweed chicken, and a fried egg.

This combination is my favourite, which costs me around 3.50 at foodcourts in my neighbourhood.

However, the unfriendly and rude male staff charged $5.80!!! Is this because I am a foreigner who doesn't know the price in Singapore? I've never paid this kind of price for "economical" bee hoon. Do you think I was conned?

In one of these days, I will ask my local friends to get the same combination and see how much the stall will charge him.

Do you think it's overpriced?
