FRAUD EXPOSED: THE DIRTY ROY NGERNG SCHEME TO TRICK SINGAPOREANS

This is going to be lengthy but this needs a rebuttal because there are things that the author intentionally excluded which makes it malicious. I’m referring to the article “Truth Exposed: The Dirty CPF-HDB Scheme To Trick Singaporeans“. I am not a fan of the CPF because I eschew the fact that it is only a good tool for people who are actually earning enough but does not compensate for the low income earners. I question the economic efficiency of having a large reserve in the form of CPF and the risk of it been siphoned off without the necessary safeguards. But I’m not going to spread lies about it and then weave it into some conspiracy theory. I don’t believe that the provident fund is the best model for Singapore at this point but given the political economic structures in place, it might be the only appropriate model in the foreseeable future. So let me take apart Mr Roy Ngerng malicious article

“LESBIANS ARE CANCER” Dr Syed Khairudin Aljunied is a Member of the PAP

Also, Dr Syed was also the YPAP vicechairperson for the Chong Pang Branch, which you can see in the photos. It is likely that he is being groomed for political office, and was using religion to try to rally the Malay-Muslim community to the PAP side. Is this why he got off lightly? Can you imagine what would have happened if an Opposition politician tried to use Islam to gain the support of the voters? He would be accused of being an Islamic fundamentalist, or even worse be detained under ISD! The PAP tried to character assassinate Jufrie Mahmood that way when he used the words 'Insha'Allah' (God Willing), but here Dr Syed got off scot-free!?

Crazy weather patterns in S’pore causing unusual mass blooming of flowers

Plants and trees across Singapore have started to go into full bloom out of the blue, as such mass flowering is rarely seen here. According to Oh Cheow Sheng, the director of streetscape at the National Parks Board (NParks), the likeliest cause for this mass flowering is the recent prolonged dry spell in Singapore that lasted for more than a month that was followed by a few days of heavy rain.However, this doesn’t explain the precise biological reason as to how the mass flowering is triggered.

‘Hidden’ unemployment problem in Singapore

If this number of unemployed is translated to number of families affected by unemployment, the number of residents who are affected by unemployment becomes much bigger. So, there is a serious unemployment problem in Singapore. The group which is most affected is in fact not the “young” with post-secondary education, but the “old” PMETs. Indeed, while these PMETs are out of work, isn’t it ironic to find that for the same month of December 2013, there were 175,100 employment pass holders working in Singapore?

Abolish GST to reduce cost of living & Govt still has surplus

The government collects $10 billion in GST each year and has a surplus of $30 billion in the budget, according to IMF accounting conventions. They can remove the GST totally and still have a fairly healthy budget surplus of $20 billion. Removal of GST totally will reduce the cost of living by at least 7% and could be more, if the saving in accounting and administration for GST and GST vouchers is considered. This will bring immediate relief to an economy that is heavily strained with high business cost, and a people that is suffering from high cost of living.

In Singapore, citizens don’t want babies — or foreign workers, either

In Singapore, the place where most people go to make the biggest decision in their lives — other than, arguably, their choice of a spouse — is the headquarters of the Housing Development Board. It's a get-a-room, one-stop shop: Browse the planned communities depicted in glass-enclosed models on the first floor, pick out your unit at the staged showrooms three floors up, and descend again to line up your financing and apply for a spot.

Appeal for waiver of $76,000 bond payment for failing teaching course from Minister of education Mr Heng Swee Kiat

I am appealing on behalf of Mr Zulfikli, who has written to us regarding MOE’s request for his daughter Zafirah Hamizah Bte Zulfikli to pay back a bond of $76,000 for failing her teaching course at NIE. We also find the bond payback both ridiculous and unreasonable especially when hundreds of millions of taxpayer money is splashed on foreign students studying on scholarship here.

SG telcos find new ways to fleece customers

Recently, we read about how Starhub and Singtel used dubious methods to overcharge customers. Just now, I realised M1 is up to sneaky ways to con us of our money too. My latest M1 bill had 7-8$ of something called voicemail access. When I called them, M1 told me that this was the duration for which people left voice mails for me. I was shocked as I was never told I would be charged for the time people left voicemails for me. If anything, we were told that under our plan, there is free voicemail.
