Letter to Today: I am not Lawrence Khong

However, I wish to state clearly that this is not a petition for Christians or Muslims. It is a petition for all who care for Singapore and about the kind of environment that future generations of Singaporeans will grow up in. While I understand most of my petition’s support would come from the religious circles and I totally welcome it, I hope that even non-religious organizations and individuals can sign on this petition as well.

PRC FAMILY ALLOWS THEIR KID TO PEE IN PUBLIC POOL DESPITE ADVISING THEM NOT TO

I am disgusted to see this family letting their child urinate into the drain right next to the swimming pool on Saturday, Feb 15. We saw this at the Downtown East chalet's swimming pool. Despite telling them nicely not to do this in the public pool, they ignored me and continue doing their thing. They are a family from China but I do not know if they are tourist or are they living here and they seems to not be able to understand english.

Govt, S’poreans that blur on Indons’ ship-naming?

The govt missed the opportunity to kick the Indonesian govt in the balls. It could have made the Indon govt look stupid and crass internationally. S’poreans (govt* and all the commentators bar one Voice, see below) are behaving like frogs in a well in their reaction to the Indonesian brazenness over the naming a naval vessel after two “heroes” who killed S’porean civilians in the 1960s.

To Driver of SGK7821K: A Warning

Lohcifer bought four set meals and the moment he collected them but before he and his wife could drive off again, the same woman behind his car started sounding the horn impatiently again. “What’s the bloody hurry?” asked Lohcifer. He wasn’t deliberately moving slowly, being mindful to drive off as quickly as possible, yet the impatience exhibited by the woman behind him really irked him.

S'pore water deal to be reviewed

For the first time in 53 years, the raw water agreement between Johor and its neighbour across the Causeway, Singapore, is set to undergo a review. The Attorney-General's Chambers has given the Johor government the green light to reassess the rate charged for the raw water it supplies to Singapore, which has been in place since 1961. Following the move, Johor is expected to raise the rate sometime this year. It will also embark on a "zero water dependency" programme so that it would no longer need to purchase treated water from Singapore in the future.

Sengkang Swimming Complex and Sengkang Floating Wetland

This complex is great. Eight waterslides – I mean how can the little munchkins not be happy with that? I’ll tell you how – for six of the big slides, you have to be five years old AND 1.2 meters tall. Both of my lads did not fit the requirements, and surprisingly, took it in their stride. I really did expect a fight, but they were very cool – phew. They would have loved it though. So be prepared if you go there with little kids.
