16 YEAR OLD S'POREAN: WE SHOULD BE APPRECIATIVE OF THE PAP AND WHAT THEY ARE DOING

For me, I see things fairly and not like some Singaporeans who have a dogmatic view about our government – either positively or negatively. Though I may be a youthful 16-year-old Singaporean, however I believe that what need to be said have to be said. I hope that all of you will take my post into consideration not take it as a platform for you to try and correct me or go against me.

PAP BASHERS SHOULD FOCUS ON UNSATISFIED ACTIONS, NOT INDIVIDUALS OR SUPPORTERS

Of course, their demands are accompanied by their ideal life of having cheap cars, no COEs, no jams, no ERPs (just look at the irony staring), low taxes (our tax structure is one of the lowest in the world and if they can't afford expensive houses and cars they probably don't have to pay much taxes either) and not train breakdowns. Seriously I'm getting sick of the train breakdown complaints that involve apparently the taxes they paid (probably low) or the rising transport costs (about a few cents per trip) that ultimately boils down to the incompetency of PAP according to them.

PAP's Executive Condo Cooling Measures Destroy Hopes of Buyers

Another government agency has taken their turn to implement new cooling measures. The Ministry of National Development (MND) announced yesterday that they are introducing three new measures to better align the Executive Condominium (EC) Scheme with other public housing. And what a smack down it is. Here, we take a look at them and why the dream of owning an EC may have faded for many:

URA now says to ‘engage’ NSS but can one trust URA?

In this respect, the Nature Society also said in its criticism earlier, “Some parks are called nature parks but to what extent they are permanent in the sense of not being subjected to development in the future is not guaranteed nor clear.” And even if the government gives a ‘guarantee’ now for the current plan, it can still decide to change its mind some years down the road, as revealed by the Nature Society. For example, it noted that Mandai Mangrove, Khatib Bongsu, Pulau Semakau and the four Coral Zones were designated as “Nature Areas” in the original 1993 Singapore Green Plan. However, they were quietly removed from the 2012 revised Singapore Green Plan.

LIFE AS A CHANGI AIRPORT SCREENING OFFICER WITH CERTIS CISCO AVIATION SECURITY

I want to share with you and your readers life as a Screening Officer with Certis Cisco Aviation Security Pte Ltd in Changi Airport Terminal 3. For a reputable company which proudly boasts about its good work ethics, its 3M Model (Man, Method, Machine) and good working conditions for its employees. It is quite hypocritical. A standard over view for a full time Screening Officer:

2014 NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS: MY WISHLIST FOR PAP

These aspirations show that Singaporeans want a kinder, less materialistic and more inclusive society, and quality growth at a slower pace. But your chorus of fear-mongering (see here, here, here and here) on the “tradeoffs” of slower growth only goes to show how disconnected you are from society.After a fateful 2013 that began with your resounding electoral defeat, ended with the first ever riot in decades and was filled with incidents of incompetence in between, perhaps you should take 2014 as a year of introspection. Listen more, talk less.

ARE YOU SURE SG’S UNEMPLOYMENT RATE IS SO LOW?

We do have a lot of PMETs who have lost their jobs and have no choice but to take up taxi, property and insurance licenses. They want their old job but are doing temp now. And I’m sure, for taking up such jobs even though it is out of necessity, the government will still consider them to be “employed”. The good economy is derived from overtaxing Singaporeans and casinos. Citizens have not really benefited. But to continue to hoodwink the public into believing that a good economy means many good jobs, they are “fixing the stats” through various means. With so many unemployed and underemployed people around me, how can I believe the government’s unemployment figure?
