HDB as landlord and property owner is useless, they allow town councils to mismanaged their estates. In the past, Singapore used to be spotlessly clean and now we are no better than any 3rd world countries. There are laws enacted by both HDB and SCDF but these are not enforced by their agents, the town councils.
The Straits Times reported last week that Sigma Elevator, a lift company, had been banned from tendering for new HDB projects since October 2015 because of poor performance of its lifts. But after a spate of serious lift malfunctions that resulted in severe injuries and even one death, Minister for National Development Lawrence Wong did not reveal this fact.
So you repeat yourself, loud and nasty for everyone to hear. “No hugging here. Can you see? This is Singapore. Go hug outside (the rails).” The women are shocked. The child is shocked. I am shocked. Joy sufficiently wiped from their faces, they exit past the rails but the mood for indiscriminate hugging has vanished. “This is Singapore. You Filipinos, go back to the Philippines. This is Singapore.” I stand stunned. My heart feels sick for this family that such ugliness is the first thing that greets them.
Yet another report of soccer player running into problems with the law. Over the weekend, news came out that National Team footballer Shakir Hamzah was arrested at Changi Airport just before his S-League club Tampines was due to fly off to Malaysia for a friendly match.
Apparently, he was arrested for failure to attend court for a case related to his family matters. To simply ignore the court and attempt travel out of the country, shows a lack of respect for the country's laws. We cannot jump to conclusions on what the case is about, that is for the courts to decide. What is important is that everyone respects the Courts, and not think you can get away with anything just because you are a National Footballer.
When citishit decides to close a banking account, all information of it will cease to exist anywhere on your online banking. No records, no indication of a closure and account simply disappears like magic...
Only way to know is to call Citiphone, and cards center will insist to help you becos they won't see that you used to have a banking account. So you have to do some useless verification & explain the situation before they finally understand that they can't help you and transfer you to the banking side (despite telling them upfront you would like to speak to the banking side)
Is it right that when you take an Uber car, and the driver started to try to persuade you by inviting you to visit his place of worship?
I recently took an Uber car, and the driver started talking about his place of worship, and the religion's greatness towards mankind. He even persuaded me to visit his place of worship to experience the greatness in action for myself. Now, i can understand when someone talks highly of his religion, it's a free country, and you can practice any religion you want.
But to openly persuade someone to go visit, when i told him nicely I am not interested? Surely that is wrong. While I was not forced to do anything against my will, it really made my journey an uncomfortable one.
Then on my left, in the opposite direction, there was this man who walked past me and I felt it. I felt his entire palm & 5 fingers on my upper thigh, right next to my butt. He exerted slight pressure and all his fingers curled up & dug into my thigh, and he let go. Once I felt that touch, like a reflex action, I immediately turned and saw the back of the guy & I smacked him right on his back. So my male cousins stopped the pervert & questioned him if he did touched me and of course the pervert denied and asked "Where's your proof?! Do you have proof that I touched her?!" Wah, I hear already damn angry bloody idiot. Who goes around videoing themselves to catch such incident!?
