So, 4,400 people have been found to have submitted false claims for SkillsFuture credits without actually taking any course. And the money cheated in the false claims amounted to about $2.2 million.
Are people in Singapore so hard up over money? Are we not making enough money from honest hard work, that we have to resort to cheating and lying our way, to claim freebies handed out by the government? Of course, the freebies handed out by the government are an oxymoronic sentence. There are never freebies handed out.
It goes something like this - "It's kinda scary that we don't know what the future is going to be like. Banker, Doctor, Robots taking over. A lot of jobs will be lost" This ad really irritates the heck out of me. And yes, since the time frame of this ad means I am one of the old people the ad is referring to, then maybe I should educate the young.
Nobody knows the future! That, in essence, is the beauty of life. It is how you make it an adventure ahead. And you don't study for the sake of getting a job. You study to get educated. Once you get a job, you train for that job. And why must you only say banker and doctor? Other jobs? Why make bankers and doctors afraid for their jobs.
I was browsing the Orchard Gateway website on 26 Feb (Sun), and chanced upon this fashion advert ("Against The Norm") of a young man in a flowery shirt upside-down, with his head against the floor. This is featured on the front page, apparently to promote Orchard Gateway's men's fashion offerings at "Men's Zone @L4". http://www.orchardgateway.sg/menszone/index.php
My unhappy experience with Kleenwash laundry in Yew Tee. I sent my winter coat with belt and hat to wash on 26 Dec 16 for dry cleaning. I noticed the bill i received did not write any hat or belt on it and already reluctant to leave it with Kleenwash but I never take my concerns seriously and decided to leave my coat as it is with them thinking Kleenwash is professional. I collected my coat on 8 Jan 17 not really checking in 8detail as it was packed nicely in the laundry plastic. The following week I flew straight to Japan and tuck my coat in my luggage together with the laundry plastic.
Since public are not allowed in the bus parks, it is very obvious that the rubbish on the ground is all contributed by the bus captains. If they can litter so freely even at their own workplace, I am skeptical of whether they even bother to keep public areas clean outside of working hours, with simple gestures such as throwing their own rubbish into rubbish bins.
On 1 Feb 2005, it cost only $224 for a motorcycle COE. On 5 Feb 2017, the price had increased to $6412 or about 28 times. Did the salary of delivery drivers increase by even 2.8 times? The last time a motorcycle COE cost below $2000 was in January 2014. Within 15 months, it had increased by $4000 to above $6000. It appears a motorcycle COE may cost more than $10000 soon.
Singapore’s PAP government Internet Brigade reported my postings and I was banned from posting for 12 hours. This posting had more than 100 shares on Facebook and more than 2000 shares on google. Whoever have shared this article about the inhumane treatment of inmates in Singapore will most probably have your links all deleted.

With reference to my article “Water price: Have costs, but no revenue?” (Feb 24) – Terry Xu, the editor of theonlinecitizen had talked to me about the Public Utilities Board’s (PUB) annual reports. The Net Income after Government Grants and after Contribution to GCF (Government Consolidated Fund) and Taxation (Profits) for FY2015 was $166.8 million – an increase of 77.3 per cent compared to say FY2010’s profit of $94.1 million. The total profits in the last seven years (only seven years’ annual reports in the PUB’s web site) was $1.0909 billion.
