5 MAJOR FACTS ABOUT SINGAPORE THAT EVERY SINGAPOREAN SHOULD UNDERSTAND

Lately there has been an ongoing trend of Singaporeans lashing out at the government, voicing out unhappiness and dissatisfaction. We saw a article of how we are ranked in the top most expensive cities, we had Roy Ngerng causing a huge stir about the CPF system, we had photo comparisons of what a 3-room flat in Bishan can be like a bungalow in Pennsylvania. Many people are saying that our ministers are getting paid too high and there is a large widening gap between the rich and the poor.

PRIME MINISTER LEE HSIEN LOONG: "YOU JUST TELL ME WHAT TO DO"

In less than three hours, a series of eight powerful up close and Personal Portraits were created within the Istana. The shoot went extremely well and the entire session was smooth with jokes and light-hearted conversation. Till date, I would say that was one of the best, easiest, smoothest and most satisfying shoots I ever had. Thanks to “You just tell me what to do”. To me, that sentence really means, professionalism, respect, and trust.

A LITTLE APPRECIATION GOES A LONG WAY

For me, the toughest part of my job probably comes from my role as a drink stall assistant. From the common Iced Milo to the more complex Teh O Siew Dai Po Bing and even the rather unorthodox Kopi Milo, I am in-charge of taking the orders, collecting the money, giving the change and sometimes even making some of the simpler drinks myself.

Our defense budget is high as a proportion of GDP in relation to other countries. We also require our male citizens to spend two years full time for military training and to be called back for reservist training over a period of up to 15 years. Two years is too long.
