ALL CNG TAXIS TO BE TESTED BEFORE ALLOWED OUT ON THE ROADS AGAIN

The LTA have finally reacted after two taxis, which were fitted with Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) cylinders, caught fire int he past month. All taxis fitted with CNG must now undergo compulsory testing by Thursday 25 May before they are allowed on the roads again.

The two taxis that caught fire recently are both well publicised cases. The first one which caught fire and exploded on April 30, injured four people, including a firefighter. The second one happened earleir this week at Marymount Road. Investigations done by SCDF found that both CNG taxi fires occurred due to the leakage of compressed natural gas within the vehicles, which was then ignited by the lighting of cigarettes.

SPRING SINGAPORE KENA CHEATED OF $50,000 BY COUPLE

A couple has admitted to cheating Spring Singapore of $50,000, and are facing 201 cheating forgery charges for one, and 196 charges for the other. Soh Hua Xiang, a former Spring Singapore employee, had targeted SMEs and set out to create fake business development voucher accounts under their names.

He will then print out fake invoices from solutions provider companies, and submitted them via Spring Singapore's website. He colluded with his lover, I Shu Hui, who was a Spring Singapore employee at the time too. Together, they were able to approve the disbursement of funds.

Soh was apparently part of the Spring team that designed the Innovation and Capability Vouchers (ICV) portal, via which the cheating scheme was carried out. He took advantage of the system that he helped design, and thus, had knowledge of how to manipulate the ICV for his own gains. I Shu Hui was a finance manager at Spring Singapore, who was able to approve the disbursements of funds to Soh via Giro.

ALWAYS BEWARE OF CULT-LIKE INVESTMENT SALES PITCH, IF ITS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE, IT PROBABLY IS!

I remember the day I was invited to attend a seminar in a POSH looking office, whereby the company is promoting investment packages, some business model I do not understand. There are many young executives, all in suits, claims to be driving big continental cars. They were promoting and pushing the packages sales to everyone who walked in. There were fancy videos and images of the company vision and investments that look extremely realistic. The members will hype up the session when their LEADER is presenting with shouting and loud clapping.

GRAB AND UBER PUSHES PRIVATE HIRE CARS NUMBERS UP, THE END OF TAXIS?

The number of private hire cars plying Singapore roads have apparently now soared by nearly 70 times since Uber and Grab entered the market in 2013. it is now reported that the number of private hires are 1 and a half times more than the number of taxis on the road.

This was according to numbers released by LTA. Before Uber and Grab entered the market four years ago, there were fewer than 500 such cars, mainly operated by limousine services. However, the number have now jumped to 41,297 units as at last month. The current total taxi population is 26,476.

With the high numbers of private hire cars, it is little wonder that many taxi drivers are complaining of a shrinking market for them. And, with numbers of taxis and private hire cars combined, these means that there are also more cars on the road now. The aim of reducing the number of cars on the roads might be dependent on car drivers giving up their cars to take these private hires or taxis. But how many actually have given up their car?

PAP MINISTER PROMISES TO CONCLUDE INDIA CECA AGREEMENT, MORE FOREIGN TALENTS INCOMING?

Despite widespread misgivings among S'poreans at the effects of the CECA with India, primarily revolving around the clause recognising the qualifications of Indian nationals in 127 professions opening the door for them to work here, the PAP is going ahead to conclude the Agreement with the south Asian giant. The aforesaid clause has already been implemented in certain PMET sectors such as banking and this has resulted in an influx of foreign Indian nationals into the foreign banks to the extent that places like MBFC and CBP have been renamed by locals as Mumbai Financial Centre and Chennai Business Park.

MADE-IN-SG SIMILAC PLUS MILK POWDER IS CHEAPER TO BUY IN JB THAN IN OUR OWN COUNTRY

I Saw this Similac Gain Plus Stage 3. in JB Aeon. The price is about RM130 before discount for a 1.8kg tin. Similarly, SG is selling close to $90 which i just bought at Sheng Siong. What is really shocking is that Similac from AEON JB is now Product of Singapore!!! So a product of Singapore is being exported out to Malaysia and is being sold much more cheaper than in the production country of Singapore.
