CHINA'S RICH STILL PREFER TO LIVE IN SINGAPORE

A growing number of the world’s super-rich are choosing to live in more than one country, with many of them parking their substantial wealth in overseas real estate, according to new findings from the Barclays Wealth Insights report, which looked at where the wealthy prefer to live, work, invest and retire. At the top of the tree when people look for second homes or citizenship, it tends to be the US, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, the UK, and then Singapore and Hong Kong,” said Liam Bailey, Head of Residential Research, Knight Frank. Specifically, Singapore has emerged as one of the top destinations for Chinese HNWIs, due to the ease of doing business in the city-state.

NO INCREASE IN BUS FARE TO M'SIA DESPITE TOLL HIKES

Commuters using public buses and tour coaches to travel to Malaysia can breathe easy despite the recent announcements on the Causeway toll hikes, at least for now. The three public bus services that go to Johor Baru are classified as basic services, for which fares can be revised only at the Public Transport Council’s (PTC) annual round of fare reviews. Similarly, private bus operators say they have no plans to raise ticket prices at the moment. Grassland Express and Tours’ general manager Tan Boon Huat and his counterpart at CitiExchange Express said their companies would absorb the hike.

PAP INTENDS TO PROFIT FROM PIONEER GENERATION PACKAGE

Many Singaporeans still don’t get it. The Pioneer Generation Package was not designed to benefit our pioneers. The Pioneer Generation Package (PGP) was designed by civil servants with a profit motive, to channel more CPF for GIC to invest and to coincide with the next GE. Singaporeans must remember the PAP runs our country as a corporation and civil servants and politicians are rewarded by a set economic KPIs.

[YOUR LETTERS] MOE TRAINEE TEACHER INSULTS STUDENTS ON SOCIAL MEDIA

I am a local Singaporean student and I would want to complain about my teacher. Although teaching may seem like a noble profession involving numerous personal sacrifices, some teachers apparently have questionable attitudes which appear quite befuddling.

LOCAL BLOGGER SELLS HER SOILED PANTIES ONLINE FOR $45 A PIECE

Felicia's blog apparently surfaced in November when she first advertised the sale of an old pair of panties for $30. On Dec 1, she raised the price of most of her used panties to $45, while older ones were priced slightly less. Buy my used panties for $45 a pair. Better still, buy two pairs and also get a video showing me taking off the panties for you. Her unusual move of promoting her used-underwear online business with a free "sexy video" got netizens talking about whether her actions are socially unacceptable or, worse, illegal.

THE WIDOW AND HER MILLIONS

This is probably the first, or at least rare, case of someone trying to revoke another person’s power of attorney. It must be an interesting time for the office of the Public Guardian which surely has a vested interest in making sure that its processes are water-tight. I wonder what sort of questions the public guardian asks of anyone who is signing away his legal rights and how it ensures that the person hasn’t been influenced in any way, especially a childless widow with millions.

FORMER STRAIGHT MAN: I ENJOY GOING TO GAY CLUBS IN TANJONG PAGAR!

Every gay man has a coming-out story, but I believe in a coming-out place, a place which links us to our rite-of-passage point at Tanjong Pagar; a place which reminds us that, before our collective memory in the gay space of Tanjong Pagar, we each have a space that is unique to our own gayhood.
