MILK POWDER FOR ELDERLY TOO COSTLY, GVT SHOULD LOOK INTO THIS TOO

With regard to the prices of infant milk powder, I hope the Government can also look into reducing the prices of nutritional drinks for the elderly. Many of the elderly may have difficulty eating nutritionally-sufficient meals because their swallowing muscles have weakened. Hence they need nutritional milk, such as from the Ensure brand, to get sufficient nutrition as part of their diet. The cost per tin, however, can be high — around S$40 and above — so it would be appreciated if the appropriate body could look into this.

HAVING MORE FOREIGNERS IN SCHOOLS WILL GIVE US BETTER OPPORTUNITIES

ST forummer Anne Chong suggested to welcome more foreigners into our schools. She said foreign and local children could develop friendships that might bloom into strong business ties in the future. Local parents, too, will have more opportunities for networking. This would prove very useful when they want to explore business opportunities in these foreign lands. She also said this is particularly relevant at a time when there is an excess of capacity in schools due to a declining cohort of local children.

LOCAL BANK JOB DRAWS DOZENS OF FT BANKERS. IS THIS A JOB S'POREANS WON'T DO?

I have always believe in the Singapore system. But recent events in this country suggest that we may no longer be operating on meritocracy anymore. In fact, it seems we have regressed to colonial times where foreigners are busy snapping up jobs from all Singaporean locals, and the best salaries and good prospects are reserved for those born outside of this country.

MOTHER THREATEN SOCIAL WORKER WITH CHOPPER

Court documents stated that on Feb 24, 2017, an MSF social worker called off the weekly visit citing concerns for the boy’s safety, after “receiving information” that Neo was “unstable” after a fight with her boyfriend. This made Neo upset, and she decided to confront the social worker, arming herself with a knife and a chopper.

She made her way to the Social Service Office (SSO) in Taman Jurong, where she held the knife to her own neck and demanded to see the social worker. An alarm was raised immediately by SSO staff, but the social worker decided to approach Neo to calm her down. Neo however, pressed the chopper to the social worker's neck, but she managed to escape and restrain Neo with the help of her colleagues.

YISHUN NEIGHBOUR-FROM-HELL FINALLY ARRESTED, FACES UP TO $1000 FINE ONLY

Congratulations to Yishun residents! The famous sunglass auntie who splashes her neighbour's house with oil, urine, salt etc has been arrested by the police. The neighbour from hell, Mdm Tan, was caught at Yishun Central last Saturday. Many residents have complained about her for the past 2 years. One of her neighbours even had to build a wall complete with cacti and durian shells to guard against her. Even then, she did not stop throwing random things at their houses, which caused the doors to rust and get damaged. She was arrested under the Public Order and Nuisance Act and may be fined up to $1000.

FEWER PEOPLE RECEIVED PAY RAISE IN 2016, AS PRICE HIKES CONTINUES

An MOM report on wage practices, which was released today, indicated that the number of employees who received a pay increase in 2016 has dropped, and total wage growth, which includes CPF contributions, have also fallen.

The report also said that profitable private firms also continued to fall, which partly explains why the wage growth has also dropped. All these figures, released by the MOM, shows that people are basically not getting the expected wage hikes that they had hoped for. And all during the same period, the government is having a spree of increasing every price it can. Water hikes, service and conservancy charges, car park hikes, transport hikes, you name it, the government would probably have announced an increase in the past year.
