NEW IPPT IS A HALF-BAKED SYSTEM FOR WUSSIES

My initial impression of the NEW IPPT is that the changes are introduced in a rather haphazard manner. It worries me because I would not want our men to be guinea pigs to test out a half-baked system ill-thought through by Mindef. Over the years, it is not known how many casualties have been claimed by the IPPT. Recapping what is taught at the OCS – leadership by example, perhaps our male MPs could try the new IPPT system so as to motivate us with their stellar results?

'DEAF' PRC CASHIER AT JURONG SPRING MCDONALDS SCREWED UP MY MEAL ORDER

In my 15 years as a regular customer at McDonald's Jurong Spring CC, never have I encountered a counter staff who'd mistakenly give me a meal set ENTIRELY different from what I originally ordered the way Kim Lui, an old China woman, did.

Seeing that I was already very upset at the mix-up, they immediately rectified the issue, all the while receiving a very vulgar scolding from me.

HOW CAN PAP UNSCREW THEIR BAD IMAGE?

The PAP’s image has taken a big hit with its handling of the CPF money. Netizens are making all kinds of suspicious and derogatory remarks of the PAP and forming a very negative impression of what it is doing with their money. Yes, it is a perception, but it is a very bad perception that the PAP has to live with. Can it ignore such a perception and think that everything will be fine and the next GE will just be fine without doing anything to clear the damaging image, without correcting the impression?

COEs FOR SINGAPOREANS FIRST

The COE system has failed to curb congestion, but the government is addicted to the revenue collection each year, easily a few billion dollars. It is now even talking about a new ERP system, GPS distance based collection. So even if one is traveling off peak, not adding on to the congestion, you still have to pay the transport tax. Never mind that you have already paid GST for the fuel which is technically already a distance-based tax.
