HOW DOES POOR NEEDY S'PORE FAMILIES SURVIVE ON MISERLY $300 MONTHLY COMCARE AID?

The first thought that came to my mind when I read the above, was – shouldn’t these elderly poor in rental flats be receiving financial assistance from ComCare? So, does it mean that the average monthly financial assistance was about $274 per household ($130.2 million divided by 39,548) or about $125 per beneficiary ($130.2 million divided by 86,759)? Isn’t these amounts arguably, kind of low? How does a family survive on about say $300 a month?

NTU STUDENT BRINGS GUAN YIN GODDESS TO EXAM HALL, HOPES TO SCORE A+?

Reddit user uxilixu shared an epic photo of a NTU student who brought the Guan Yin Goddess to his exam hall with hopes she would bless him with good fortune to tide over the exams. Netizens speculated that the NTU student should have prayed to the bellcurve god instead of Guan Yin Ma because the Bellcurve God is in charge of his grades whereas Guanyinma was not.

RAT SPOTTED AT EATERY IN ANG MO KIO, NOT THE FIRST TIME IT HAPPENED

Rat alert at Ang Mo Kio station! Our reader sighted a rat scurrying around in an eatery inside the MRT station and said it is not the first time this happened.

He said NEA was already aware of a similar problem last year and tried taking precautions. However, the problem has obviously not improved.

He was concerned that the problem will only worsen, like how the rats may chew on MRT cables or cause other hygiene issues, and hope for authorities to take action.

Do you think the problem will be resolved quickly? Next time rats cause train disruption then how?

LONG AWAITED ARTS CENTRE TO FINALLY OPEN BY 2018

Finally, it was announced that the long awaited redevelopment of Stamford Arts Centre (SAC) will begin next month. This after many false starts about the redevelopment plans. By the middle of next year, it will reopen as an arts space fully dedicated to traditional arts.

The centre is located on Waterloo Street opposite the Sri Krishnan and Kwan Im Thong Hood Cho temples. The centre will include a new multipurpose hall for performances and rehearsals, a shared studio, an artist-in-residency space, and new lifts and walkways connecting the three blocks within the compound. There are also plans for shops and F&B outlets on the ground floor.

PARENTS IGNORANT OF CHILDCARE COMMUNICATION, CLAIMED WAS NOT TOLD

I saw one such parent today. The kids at the centre were supposed to bring an empty clean bottle for some art lessons. This was communicated to parents via logbook, which parents had to read and sign everyday, and via a piece of notice given to them, placed in the child's school bag. You cannot miss it, unless you never take out stuff from the bag, which is impossible. This communication happened more than two weeks before the child was supposed to bring the bottle.

And the parents were reminded again via a second logbook communication just the day before. Impossible for you to miss it. Yet, when the day came, this parent insisted that her child did not know about this, and she was not informed. How could that be! Everyone who heard her knew she was lying, that she didn't even bother to read her child logbook.

SG ATHLETICS NEXT UP FOR ELECTIONS, SKELETONS IN CLOSET WAITING TO BE UNLEASHED?

Next up us the Athletics body. The Singapore Athletics will vote their for their new leader on May 5, barely ten months after the current leadership of the Association taking office. The call for a snap poll is believed to have been prompted by numerous disagreements over several issues, which has caused conflict within the seven-member executive committee.

Wonder what skeletons in the closet they will drag out in this election. Will there be mud-slinging, accusations going back and forth, and allegations of funds misuse? This will be another interesting election. Seems the past few weeks, sports in Singapore has been getting the spotlight they crave for. Just not the kind of spotlight they would have welcomed.
