In the incident, which occurred just three hours before the girl and her family were due to fly back to China on Friday at about 3pm, a few children had knocked down the mirror while playing in the Urban Revivo store. The mirror reportedly then fell on the toddler, who was then standing in front of it. CCTV footage caught the incident, although no videos had been released on the incident. The girl was unconscious when she was taken to Changi General Hospital, where she was subsequently pronounced dead.
In the video, a woman who was already inside the car was seen passing the dirty diaper to the man, who was standing outside the car. Instead of looking for a rubbish bin like most normal people would do, this guy just decided to fling the diaper on to the car parked behind his, with a look of utter disdain. The man even took another look at his handywork, and in his triumphant moment, probably failed to realise that the camera was filming his very vile act.
In his post dated 23 August, Jufrie Mahmood said that a government which is against the the implementation of a minimum wage policy is a government that does not really care about the welfare of the down trodden in society. Jufrie went on to say that the Ministers only think and care about themselves, as they keep harping on the millions in salary they are entitled to. Who entitled them to the millions but themselves?
Trade and Industry Minister and one of the future leaders of the 4G government, Chan Chun Sing, says that the government realises the cost pressure the government themselves are putting on businesses, with the planned increases in the ages for re-employment and retirement, as well as Central Provident Fund (CPF) contribution rates for older workers.
Former Presidential hopeful and Singapore's all time second favourite Tan, Tan Kin Lian, has boldly said what every sane Singaporean was thinking, that PM Lee uses a lot of wow words, colourful charts and bombastic Powerpoint presentations during his National Day Rally, but actually the actual problems that Singaporeans faced are not addressed at all.
SCDF said they responded to a fire in a fifth-floor unit of Block 158 Yung Loh Road at about 7.45pm and put out the fire with a water jet. Of the four people taken to hospital, this include a woman who had to be rescued from a kitchen ledge by firefighters. She had apparently been on the ledge hanging on for dear life for about 20 minutes. Her neighbours saw her on the ledge, and notified the SCDF officers immediately.
This is the same Singapore football that has seen no gold medals ever in the SEA Games, where only South East Asian teams take part, or the same Singapore whose own professional league have been won by foreign invited teams in the past four years. Maybe his target should have been for Singapore football to win something first in the local leagues, or the regional Games. That already seems a hard task.
Several economists have said that jobs in Singapore could be hit hard as economic weakness widens and seeps into the services sector. This is in response to the dismal economic and trade data announced by the government on Tuesday.
The Singapore National Olympic Council (SNOC) has apparently asked Singapore's best marathoner, Soh Rui Yong, to keep their dispute private and away from the public eye. Soh however, is continuing the fight against the SNOC, saying that as a public entity, SNOC should maintain high standards of accountability and transparency.
This was the third huge vegetation fire that occurred on Monday. Earlier in the day, two separate vegetation fires broke out along Jurong Road and Pang Sua Canal. The fire at Jurong apparently was as bog as 10 football fields. Investigations are still being carried out by the SCDF on all three fires.
