Award ceremony turns into feedback session with MP

A microphone was passed to me and I made a feedback about my daughter’s former school. I told them about CHIJ St. Theresa’s. I told that they are still holding my daughter’s O level Certificate as ransom.

I still insist that the school misinformed me and that I am not paying so the school is holding my daughter’s O level certificate as ransom.

Which translates to a belt-tightening that affects its employees, its congregation (in terms of the services that it would provide) and its beneficiaries (the thousands of non-church members, the poor, the elderly, the destitute that the church cares for and provides for).

City Harvest Church Trial is Back

This has dragged on for some time. Donations to the church ended up as funds to boost Kong Hee’s wife’s singing career in the US. Some of the money went into a $28,000 / month rental for a Hollywood mansion. Astonishing extravagance if you think that the money is better spent on charity.
