MRT STATIONS MAKE REDUNDANT ANNOUNCEMENTS, BUT NO ANNOUNCEMENTS IN REAL EMERGENCY

On MRT stations, we often hear some very redundant announcements, things that people will automatically do without the need to be told. Anyone else getting annoyed by this?

But when it comes to delays and emergencies, sometimes no announcements made over the PA system. The SOP on the MRT stations really flawed. Imagine hearing announcements like "Attention please. If you are unable to board the train at Platform A, please wait for the next train." Of course have to wait! Or "Attention please. For your safety, please do not stand near the escalator landing." Who stands near escalator landings when your aim is to get into the trains fast. Or "Attention please. For quicker boarding, please move to a less crowded area along the platform. Thank you." Who wants to to go to crowded area to quickly board?

But when emergency situations arrived, no announcements made. All passengers left clueless.

DR CARRIED OUT OP WITHOUT PATIENTS OK, GIVEN 6 MONTH WORK SUSPENSION ONLY

Dr Yong Thiam Look Peter was found guilty of having carried out an operation on the trigger finger of a patient without his consent, and never kept any records of the procedure. He had also been found guilty of carrying out the operation on the clinic's table, not in an operation room. All these seems like pretty serious offences.

He was sentenced to a six month suspended from work sentence, $10,000 fine and just a warning letter.

But six months suspension from work? Six months will pass by quickly. $10,000 fine? He's a private doctor, been in this practice for decades, the fine easily paid by him. And warning letter? Am sure the letter will have been thrown into the rubbish chute soon enough.

SG HOUSEWIFE WINS MALAYSIAN JACKPOT, NOW MILLIONAIRE

A Singaporean housewife won a S$7.8 million jackpot from Malaysia's Toto jackpot.

Wonder what our dear friends in Malaysia will think. Even jackpot money also Singapore want to take from Malaysia? Can allow foreigners to take away their jackpot money? Some more this foreigner does not even live in Malaysia, but lives in Singapore, is a Singaporean and only got her uncle to buy her the jackpot numbers.

Wonder if this scenario happened in Singapore, will we all be unhappy? Our jackpot money won by a Malaysian?

YES CHINA IS BULLYING SPORE, BUT HASN'T SPORE BEEN AUTHORITARIAN TO HER CITIZENS TOO?

I don't agree with a foreign power setting terms for my country, flexing its muscles to browbeat us into submission. I don't think Singapore should become subservient to China just because they are bigger than us. I don't think we should accede to conditions imposed by China – if indeed any conditions have been imposed – just to get the nine Terrex ICVs back more quickly.

WHISTLEBLOWER SHEDS LIGHT ON UNFAIR KEPPEL CORP RETRENCHMENTS PAYOUTS

Thank you for calling the bluff of both Temasek and GIC and I would like to share the same plight of another group of affected workers by Temasek-owned subsidiary, Keppel Corporation which is helm by former Minister for Labor, Lee Boon Yang. A group of workers have already previously been quietly retrenched over the last few months with grossly indecent payouts. Singaporean workers received equivalents of 2 weeks "compensation" for every year of service while PR and other EP, S Pass holders obtained a month worth of salary for every year of service. The highest payout of $70,000 went to a foreigner with more than 20 years of service. This effectively went against the established 'Tripartite Guidelines' that caps 25 years at most!

SAF TO TRAIN IN NZ, GO TAIWAN MAYBE MORE TERREX WILL BE TAKEN

Defence Minister Ng Eng Hen said yesterday that Singapore will explore more training opportunities for SAF in New Zealand. He also said that this was an opportunity to strengthen relationships with like-minded countries like NZ, due to uncertain times now.

Was this just a smokescreen, and a silent agreement that Singapore need to look for other training places away from Taiwan after what happened to our Terrexes? Have we finally admitted defeat in this saga? Of course, they won't say it out loud, but the timing of the agreement with NZ seems mighty suspicious. Really like admitting we lost in the Terrex issue, and now it's time to find training places away from places where China say we can't be there.

S'PORE LOST $30 MILLION WORTH OF TERREX BECAUSE WE ARE RUN BY PAP CLOWNS

Singapore has gotten into trouble with China because it is run by a bunch of clowns who just don’t know when to shut up. And when they did so temporarily, dishonourable son’s sister discovered she could also talk. A number of PAP elites must have contributed to losing $30 million?? worth of military equipment. Who are responsible? Parliament didn’t ask so, again, nobody is responsible for tens of millions in tax dollar losses.
