I have been seeing these LTA bikes parked under the flyover in various locations since 2-3 years ago. They are always there even on weekends. Are they eating snakes or working? Because I ever saw them lying down on some recliner chair under the Braddell Flyover when I was driving past slowly.
By splitting up the cases into three mutually exclusive categories and labeling one such category as "the community", is the Ministry not advancing the implicit view that the other categories -- work permit holders, ie. our foreign workers -- are not considered as part of our community?
With the virus going around, and circuit breaker, people at Hougang Ave 8 are still going around to do funny things like feed birds. It is an offence to feed birds. They will dirty the environment with droppings, and leftover food from pigeon feeding may attract other pests like rats, which carry diseases and pose a risk to our health.
Residents at Blk 116 Ang Mo Kio Ave 4 have been suffering from noise pollution coming from a unit on the 3rd floor, and with the circuit breaker measures in place, it has become even more frustrating as many now have to work or study from home. Everyday from 11am to 11pm daily, that unit will blast extremely loud music disturbing the entire block.
Singapore is already tiny and over-congested. Yet the gahmen encourages companies to keep the 890,400* Work Permit and S-Pass workers by offering levy waiver. Then now our SAF, SPF, MOM officers being used as butlers, security and food servers to these foreign workforce. Then the gahmen want to practice 'social distancing'. Keeping the foreign workforce and maintaining social distancing are mutually exclusive ideas. The PAP ideal is an impossible outcome. It is either more people in our island, or people spread further apart.
A netizen submitted photos of a SG Clean Ambassador sitting and eating in a hawker centre on 14 April 2020. Based on the pictures, the incident happpened at Serangoon Gardens Chomp Chomp hawker centre. One of the prevailing Circuit Breaker (CB) measures states that most people can no longer dine in food establishments such as hawker centres. So are SG Clean Ambassadors exempted from this CB measure? Clean & Green Singapore eventually clarified that SG Clean Ambassadors are not permitted to eat at hawker centres as well.
A reader informed that Snip Avenue has increased the prices of its haircut services. A usual hair cut previously cost $3.80, but it appears haircuts are now priced at $6.80. Other Snip Avenue branches had reportedly followed suit and upped their pricing to $6.80. However, our reader questioned the rationale for this price increase. If COVID-19 is used to justify price increases for other businesses, there is concern this may start a trend of consumers bearing more costs in these hard times.
Not sure if anyone notice. NTUC groceries price seems to have gone up by about 20%. Many fresh produce usually one offer or 1 for 1 seems to have disappear. All these happened right after the new announcement that we have to be prepared that food supplies disruption. If you notice or this is worth a thought. Please share and start buying from different source. Support local small businesses too!
Netizens have observed that during this Circuit Breaker (CB) period, everyday people who are SGUnited evangelists have unknowingly been brainwashed into "PAP goons". These SGUnited evangelists have started to blindly echo the PAP in trying to mute criticism against how COVID19 has been handled in Singapore.
