YOUNG SINGAPORE EMPLOYEES LEAST ENGAGE IN THEIR WORK, WORST IN ASIA

Based on a new study carried out by talent firm Aon Hewitt, Singapore employees are outed as having been the least engaged workers among major Asian markets. Least engaged in this study shows how workers relate to their company.

This shows that Singaporeans workers are the least motivated to give their best in their jobs, suggesting that workers here feel less meaningfully invested in their jobs, a trend seen most prominently among younger employees. This is definitely something worrying.

LTA TO TEST NEW SIGNAL SYSTEM, TRAINS TO STOP MOVING FOR 10 MINUTES

On Tuesday night, SMRT and LTA have announced that trains will be stopped for 10 minutes at 11pm, for the new signalling system to be tested. About 30 trains will be in operation at this time, and all 30 trains will be stopped on tracks for the tests. These tests are done on the North South Line (NSL). Once the signalling mode has taken over, the train service will resume, said LTA and SMRT again.

Strange. First, they said for 10 minutes, then the train service will resume once testing passed and the new signalling system goes into effect. Which is which? Never mind that, let's just hope the maximum time the trains will be stopped on the tracks is 10 minutes, and not 10 hours.

MAID LOST 20KG, COUPLE WHO STARVED MAID JAILED 3 MTHS ONLY

The sentence seem hardly enough for what they had done. The prosecution, which is asking for the maximum sentence of one year’s jail for both, is appealing. The couple are on bail of $3,000 each pending the appeal. Both of them had starved their domestic helper with only two meals a day at their previous condominium home at Boulevard Residence in Cuscaden Walk, causing the 40-year-old's weight to drop from 49kg to 29kg over a 15-month period. The two meals consisted of two to three slices of plain white bread and one to two packets of instant noodles in the early hours of the morning, and five to six slices of plain white bread in the late morning or early afternoon. Their domestic helper also had to ask for permission to drink water, which was just straight from the tap.

WHAT'S THE POINT OF DENTAL SUBSIDIES IF IT DOESN'T COVER MOST DENTAL PROCEDURES?

Although the Ministry of Health provides subsidies for pioneers like Mr Tan to get treated at private dental clinics, these do not cover specialist periodontic treatment. Dr Ang said the claim amount for gum treatment is equivalent to scaling, which is $40 up to twice a year. Said Mr Tan: “I am angry. What is the point of giving pioneers cheap and good medical and dental care with such long waiting times?”

As to subsidies from the Community Health Assist and Pioneer Generation schemes for poorer patients – there is no subsidy for 11 (the most common) out of the 19 dental procedures for Chas orange card holders.

WORTH TO BRAVE JAMS AND EARLY MORNINGS TO STAY IN CHEAPER JB AND WORK IN SG?

Water price going up, S&CC went up, car prices the highest in the world, parking charges went up, even buying milk powder also price went up. Homes? Don't even bother to calculate. House prices are at the highest ever, even for small 2 bedrooms HDB flats. And our CPF will be kept by the government until we too old to actually use it to enjoy all our hard labour all these years. So, why not stay in Johore? With the price we pay for our houses, we can get a house many times bigger, maybe even with our own garage and backyard. Cars? Can buy two or even three for the price we are paying for our car in SG. Grocery and utilities are very cheap too.

So, is it worth it to wake up very early every weekday mornings, send the kids to school, head to work, and then return home by night time? Worth the commute and braving the causeway jams to save lots of money for future use?

CHINESE LADY BARGED MY KIDS, NO APOLOGIES GIVEN

I was at Marina Bay floating platform with my 2 kids; 1 year old and 4 years old. We were at the exhibition Art Zoo and it became an ugly and traumatising episode for my kids for a moment, especially the 1 year old. Both my kids love to run and I am usually around them to ensure that they don't cause inconvenience to others. It was drizzling and crowded at certain areas and we have just came out of the giraffe maze and was standing near the exit point, looking around to see which exhibit to go next when suddenly this Chinese lady, carrying her child on one hand and dragging another, just barged through us and knocked down my 1 year old. She continued on her way like nothing is wrong so I said out loud, 'what are you blind?'. She heard me and turned around and she started shouting at us. She said that I should look after my own children and she has 2 kids.

PARALLEL CAR IMPORT COMPANY CLOSED DOWN, MONEY PAID, NO CAR TO SHOW

The company apparently owed a total of $600,000 to customers, but its showroom have been vacated, and even its social media accounts discontinued. The company's director and staff have been uncontactable for the past two months. The same car dealership made the headlines in November last year, when its former sales representative, Chua Peng Jun, 23, was charged in court with misappropriating $414,564. The company's director, Mr Syed Khairil, was then quoted that the company would try its best to fulfill all its orders.

Seems like they could not make it, with the director and his staff all missing now. Police reports have been made, and the authorities are investigating, but for the buyers, it is a case of hard earned money gone down the drain. Possibly with the money gone, most of them could also say goodbye to owning a new car. Not much can be done to claim back their lost money, but can more be done for customers stuck in such a dilemma? How can you trust car dealers now, as this is an industry where you pay thousands first before you actually see the product you are actually purchasing.
