Roy Ngerng: With your support, I will stand up and challenge the Government

I will continue to speak from my heart. Today, Singaporeans have shown a strength of unity. Today, we have come together. Remember, only when we stand together and only when we are united and have the courage and conviction to stand up and fight for what we believe in, will we be able to have our freedom, and where all Singaporeans will be able to live our lives, as peoples who are respected, respectable and with our heads held high.

True story – Coping with exorbitant medical costs in Singapore

According to Caveman, it took only 30RM for admission fee. Another 800RM for the piece of metal to be used in the hip surgery which he had to pay immediately in the ward. Lastly, another 300RM for the operation, blood transfusion & tests and other miscellaneous items to be paid at the cashier. Total costs – 1,130RM. That was 3 years ago in a major government hospital in JB. It is simply incredible.

HDB not taking responsibility for building defects

Like the majority of Singaporeans, I am staying in a leased flat from HDB. It is a flat built more than 20 years ago by building contractors awarded by HDB. Unfortunately in the last few years there is a leak in the ceiling of my toilets causing the entire ceiling paint to peel. This also resulted in me repainting the ceiling every year and spending a considerable sum of money. As a result of this, I have asked HDB to evaluate the problem. HDB came down and evaluated and concluded that the leaking is due to the flooring damaged on the upper unit.

Best for Roy Ngerng to thrash it out in open court?

A PRIME MINISTER of more than 15 years suing a young citizen barely 25 years old – not just for retraction of the alleged libellous statements but full legal costs & compensation for damages? Where is the sense of proportion? Again, the PM is truly out-of-touch. Dumb, even. If I was him, I’ll issue a demand letter but forget about the legal cost & the damage – unless the alleged defendant refuses to recant. At least, you start off on a higher moral ground. Neutral, reasonable people will say and agree that, yeah, it’s a matter of principle about one’s repuration.

13th Month 'Bonus' is Not Bonus Lah

To me, February is the only month you get paid correctly in the whole year in Singapore. Employers in Singapore will never overpay you in February. Fat hope and you know it. There are four weeks in a month and we get paid for 28 days in a month. that's it. Straightforward. In short we are underpaid in every other month other than February.

Blogger Roy Ngerng: I Just Got Sued By PM Lee Hsien Loong for Defamation

Hello everyone, I am Roy Ngerng. I am an ordinary citizen in Singapore who believes in speaking up for my country and my fellow citizens. Today, I received an email from Lee Hsien Loong’s lawyer. I am being sued for defamation. I have tried my best to speak up for my country. I have tried my best to advocate for my fellow citizens. However, today, I am sued by the very government which should be protecting its citizens, such as me. This is disappointing.

Good Customer Service: It takes two hands to clap

We all have different definitions or opinions. And we can go on about this, yet it remains abstract. Good service is surely not a given, as it takes two hands to clap. Studies have shown that a service provider will work harder and be happier if he is appreciated with kind, reciprocal response, not when faced with demanding, unreasonable behaviour.

Shanmugam: Are Singaporean children taught basic Respect and Compassion?

A domestic helper was walking with a young girl in school uniform. The girl was probably 14, 15 or so. The domestic helper was carrying a heavy bag of grocery and a backpack which looked like the young girl’s school bag. The young girl was carrying an umbrella. It had just stopped raining. As I passed the couple, I saw the young girl handing over the umbrella to the house help, and the house help taking it. The girl was then walking, arms completely free. The helper had her grocery bag in one hand, the umbrella in the other hand and the backpack on her back.

TRE the victim of a DNS (DDoS) amplification attack

We wish to confirm that TR Emeritus (TRE) was the victim of a DNS (DDoS) amplification attack, which resulted in the website being inaccessible for about 2 days. According to our provider (based on information provided by the Data Center), the attack was “extremely large” which could not be mitigated by “normal means”. Normally, a “small DDoS attack” (less than 5 Gbps or 500,000 PPS) can be mitigated at the router level, but that was not the case in the attack on TRE.

Nicole Seah: Boyfriend left me to protect his own reputation

UNDER the intense scrutiny of the media, Nicole Seah's boyfriend distanced himself as he was concerned about his reputation.
