The government announced that there will be more infrastructure projects over the next decade to help Singapore's economy. However, does this mean we should be allocating more money to infrastructure as compared to social welfare spending? Shouldn't we think of ways to help those in financial need instead?
The international media has been feverishly reporting on the “family feud” (this is the term used by most of the international media), and argubly making a mockery of Singapore’s sterling reputation which was built over the last 51 years. After scores of pages of statements by both sides, including the Government – the nation has arguably, become deeply divided by this issue. If there is rule of law in a country – there should only be one issue and one solution – is the will of our late former Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew valid? And therefore, only a court of law can determine this, provided the parties involved submit themselves to go through the proper legal process. It should not be decided, or in a way be decided by proxy debate, by a specially formed ministerial committee (which was not made known to Singaporeans), the Government, or the media.
A friend who has been unemployed for more than a year, after being laid off by a multi-national company (MNC) in Singapore despite sending more than a hundred applications alerted me to a job posting for IT applications analyst that was also posted on an Indonesian jobstreet website. Such PMET jobs should only be posted in the National Jobs Bank to give Singaporeans priority. So far, there are already 53 applicants (21 foreign and 32 local).
The consistent rhetoric in the media that PMET IT jobs are the fastest growing jobs sector and that there is a severe shortage of Singaporeans to fill the jobs available do not seem to connect with the reality on the ground, that as I understand it – many unemployed Singaporean PMET IT professionals are facing. For those who have more information and experience on this issue – please share. What are your thoughts on the above?
When you first step in to IPPUDO you are greeted by the lively staff, i noticed the classy decor and artwork made by ramen spoons, as we were being seated the staff set up a foldable box for us to put our belongings in, i thought it was a nifty extra service and appreciated it.

An article published on this site today, which claimed that the roof of Punggol Waterway Terraces had collapsed, was posted and removed within 20 minutes of its publication after our editors realized it was a hoax. We had no intention to cause any alarm to the public. The editors at All Singapore Stuff offer our greatest apologies for publishing the article.
I sent to Straits Times Forum Page my comments about Tengah New Town one week ago. they did not publish it so i have no choice but to post it on FB and invite concerned Singaporeans to help prevent this destruction of the only large forest land on the west of Singapore from being built upon. Calling it a forest town is a bluff.
