MORE COE OFFERED IN FEB - APRIL, MORE JAMS HEADING YOUR WAY

How come today's news say that the there will be more COEs to be offered in the February to April period, an almost 8.9% increase?

I thought the reason the government have the COE ruling is to manage the number of cars in the road? Means now the government think that the cars on the road are better able to make use of "empty" spaces in our roads? Wah, that means what, more COE, means COE might be cheaper during this period? Also means, after April, the roads and expressways will always continually have jams?

MALAYSIA BUILDING MASSIVE PORT, RIVALING SG TUAS PORT PLANS

The chairman of the authority that oversees Port Klang, Kong Cho Ha said that the massive port industrial city planed for Malaysia's Carey Island will not be a threat to Singapore's port.

Singapore is also building its own new terminal in Tuas, which is slated to be even bigger than the one that Malaysia has planned. Kong said that the Malaysia port will be complement to Singapore's Tuas one, not a direct competitor.

But maybe the timing of the building of the new ports are on purpose. Would this be the next issue that Malaysia and Singapore will go head to head in? We already have the VEP challenge, maybe next the Big New Port challenge coming our way?

HUSBAND OF DR WHO OVERCHARGED BRUNEI ROYALTY CLAIMED LAW SOCIETY OVERCHARGE HER

The irony of the husband of Dr Susan Lim filing a complaint against the Law Society, indicating that the opposing lawyers who won the case against her had inflated their fees.

Dr Lim had lost a court battle to block a disciplinary hearing against her over $24 million she had billed a patient in 2007, and was subsequently found guilty on 94 charges of overcharging the sister of the Queen of Brunei, who died of cancer in 2007. She had also been ordered to pay the legal costs for the Singapore Medical Council, which amounted to $370,000.

So the husband thinks that the wife was overcharged. Wonder what he thinks when the wife overcharged the late sister of the Queen of Brunei.

MOE FINALLY TRYING TO RECOVER HALF A BILLION DOLLAR LOANS GIVEN TO SCHOLARS

MOE is finally going to review all their long-overdue university tuition fees loans, after being flagged by the AG earlier on their failure to promptly follow up on the outstanding loans. The loans amounted to over half a billion dollars.

The review is supposed to be done by June. So far, MOE had only finished reviewing 20% of the outstanding loans since September. Also in the AG report, Nanyang Poly was taken to task for allowing the use of the name of a registered charity to solicit donations for needy graduates, which was unauthorised.

Wonder why this issue was not trumpeted more in the media. Maybe because of the loans being handed out to scholars who would one day run the media themselves? Future prospects, better not tarnish their reputations. And news reported only when MOE getting their act in order, so can say, we take action immediately.
