Even more disturbing to find out that there are no specific laws in Singapore against tampering with car odometers, unlike in Australia and the US. Although the dealer can be charged for fraudently cheating the customers if he tampered with the odometer, how many buyers would actually really know if the odometer was tampered with in the first place? To make it even worse, the Singapore Vehicle Traders Association first vice-president Raymond Tang said odometer-tampering is "quite common".
The government have given out goodies in terms of subsidised dental treatments. However, the demand for dental treatments far outstripped the what the dentists in the public sector can cope with, thus this long wait of a year or more for their treatment. Among treatments mentioned are those for serious dental problems such as periodontitis or severe gum infection. Going to a private dentist are expensive, thus this queue for dentists in the public sector.
Brings question such as why is there a lack of dentists in the public sector available. Again, a lack of foresight, of proper planning? Or just pure dumb luck that dental problems suddenly became a big issue?
Government advocating for Singaporean couples to have more babies. But with the price rising to astronomical heights, how can most people afford it? The baby bonus is a help, but not much, when all costs are considered. Milk powder is a necessity, how can we avoid not paying for such necessity?
So, for those who always say that price increase is a way of life, consider this. Is a 120% increase of price in just 10 years justifiable?
The PUB said that they were informed of the oipe leak at 4:30 am on Sunday, which caused two lanes of the roads to be closed for repairs. No reason were given as to why the pipes burst in the first place.
So, this is how we are going to be saving water, and to make Singaporeans realise water is precious. Just one pipe to burst, water not to reach homes, then you know that water is precious. And saving water? Well, you want a shower, just go to the water leak, and take your turn.
A chiobu GrabCar driver found herself in a spot when her passengers forced her to pick up 3 adults and 2 children, which is 1 person above the legal limit for a passenger car and a contravention of traffic law in Singapore. According to the lady driver, she responded to a booking by an Indian FT family. When she arrived, discovered that they had more passengers than she could legally carry. To make things worse, they had 2 young children with them.
A reader shared this photo with us and complained about the couple having sex in full view of the public at a staircase in a HDB block. According to the reader, he was peering out of his window at 4AM in the morning when he spotted the couple taking off their clothes at the staircase.
Amos Yee was granted political asylum by the judge and the sympathetic judge made it clear in his judgement that the Singapore Government persecuted Amos Yee to silence his political opinions. Using the charge of wounding religious feeling and obscenity was simple a pretext to put Amos down. Is this a slap to the PAP government and the Singapore Judges which handed down the jail sentence to Amos? Will our Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong sue Judge Cole for making false accusations against the Government and for contempt of our Singapore courts?
Since Singaporeans have been subjectef to the consistent rhetoric for decades that our HDB flats are a good “asset enhancement” policy – shouldn’t the priority for Sers be on the age of the flats, rather than “located in sites with high redevelopment potential”? If anyone from the Government had said what is being said by the Minister now in the past – would so many Singaporeans have put in so much of their CPF and cash into their HDB flats?
