MIA MP ALVIN YEO SUDDENLY WANTS TO HAVE CHIT CHAT SESSION WITH RESIDENTS

I can honestly tell you that for more than 10 years, we have never received such an invitation. I didn’t bother to go cause I know it’s just a wayang wanting to show that the MP cares. I mean if you really care for us, why wait for more than 10 years to have this “chit chat session” with us? Just because GE is coming and you are really afraid that you might get kicked out this time? I also felt quite insulted with the free breakfast thrown in to entice us to go. I know some of my neighbours went just for the free makan.

[COMPLAIN] PAP MUST STOP OPPRESSING OUR TAOIST & HINDU RELIGIOUS PRACTICES

I read the news recently about Hindu devotees, who have demanded that the government grant them an additional public holiday for Thaipusam and allow them to play musical instruments during the Thaipusam procession. I fully support their actions as I think all religions should have the right to freely practice their own religious rituals. In the same vein, I think Taoists should also be given more freedom to practice their own religious beliefs. Taoists should also get an additional public holiday for our festivals, none of which are "official" public holidays in Singapore.

GOVT-LINKED COMPANIES KEPPEL CORP & SEMBCORP MARINE ACCUSED OF BRIBERY IN BRAZIL

Rigbuilders Keppel Corporation and Sembcorp Marine on Monday (Feb 9) denied Brazilian media reports that linked them to the widening corruption scandal surrounding Brazilian national oil firm Petrobras. Brazil’s national oil firm has been embroiled in a bribery scandal since last year. Former Petrobras director Paulo Roberto Costa said the company allegedly paid millions of dollars in kickbacks to politicians and members of the ruling Workers Party between 2004 and 2012 to buy influence in what critics say was a collusion between Petrobras and politicians.

SDP: GIVE M RAVI THE DUE RESPECT EVEN WHEN HE IS ILL

Human rights lawyer, Mr M Ravi, is a respected friend of the SDP. He has an accomplished legal mind and a heart of gold. His determination to do what is right has cost him much, both in personal terms and in his career. Unfortunately, he is also afflicted with bipolar disorder. But let us recognise this: Ravi's condition is a medical one. Let us also not defend or even praise Ravi's inappropriate behaviour when he is undergoing a manic episode and use him as a political football. Rather, let us treat him as we would treat a brother.
