S’PORE PROPERTY: ONLY 0.25% ANNUAL RETURNS IN PAST TWENTY YEARS?

I refer to the article “Private home prices rise 0.5% in Q3, ending nearly four years of decline: URA flash data” (Straits Times, Oct 2). It states that “Private property prices have officially turned a corner, ending 15 quarters of decline that began in October 2013. If you look at the above chart – you can see that the URA Private Residential Property Price Index only grew by about 5.5 per cent in the last 21 years or so, or just about an annualised return of only 0.25 per cent.

FOREIGN TALENT WANTS ICA OFFICERS TO USE THEIR BRAINS AFTER THEY DEPORTED HIS RELATIVE FOR CONFIDENTIAL REASONS

Dear ICA Officers in Changi, Please do your assessment properly on the people you want to deport. Know what really is their purpose in coming to your country and do not discriminate, nor act rudely. Please be fair-minded and use your brains logically in your decisions. The officer said we need not wait for her and ask politely if we could talk to the deciding officer or talk to my cousin since she doesn’t talk english well and doesn’t have the proper budget of going back alone. The officers are heartless and said that it is confidential. I want to yell, scream and tell the officer what if he is on my shoes.

SBS TRANSIT STAFF AND COMMUTERS WORKED AS ONE TO HELP MAN WITH FITS

A man who was sitting directly across me slipped off his seat and fell to the floor. He appeared to be having an epileptic fit. A young lady proceeded to press the emergency button and shared with the driver what had happened over the intercom. A foreign worker beside me was initially hesitant to help, but later assisted by applying pressure on the man's eyebrow dents to stop his epileptic fit. Shortly after, the train came to a stop and a male SBS staff member with a walkie-talkie came to examine the man who was lying on the ground. The staff member and two other passengers then helped to carry the man out of the train.

DEAD ELDERLY WOMAN’S FAMILY UNABLE TO RECOGNISE HER DUE TO SEVERITY OF INJURIES

At around 9 am when the victim still had not come home, Mr Yang's father went back downstairs. This time, he walked to the accident site and told police officers that he could not find his wife. According to Mr Yang, a warehouse supervisor, investigators spoke to his father and realised the victim's name matched his wife's. They asked Mr Yang's father if he would like to identify the body, but the latter declined to do so. Investigators then handed Mr Yang's father a photo of the deceased instead. However, due to the severity of the victim's injuries, Mr Yang's father was unable to recognise his wife. As such, he told police officers that the deceased was not his wife. Mr Yang's father subsequently called him to come to the scene, but he too, was unable to identify the deceased until later.
