LTA: Train Service Reliability has Improved

Train service reliability has improved in 2013 since the implementation of several targeted measures by the LTA-SMRT and LTA-SBS Transit (SBST) Joint Teams. SMRT and SBST are also enhancing service levels by increasing the number of train trips across their MRT lines. Across the MRT network, the number of incidents causing delays of more than 5 minutes for every 100,000 kilometres travelled has declined by 20% in 2013 compared to 2012.

Malaysia: Non-Muslims banned from using word "Allah"

Malaysia’s king gave his backing today (Jan 19) to a court ruling barring non-Muslims from using the word Allah to refer to God, weighing in for the first time on an issue that has fanned religious tensions in the multi-cultural country. Sultan Abdul Halim Mu’adzam, whose role as head of state is largely ceremonial, alluded to the issue which has raised questions over minority rights during his birthday speech to the Southeast Asian nation. A court in October ruled that the word was exclusive to majority Malay Muslims, overturning an earlier decision allowing a Catholic newspaper to use Allah in its Malay-language edition.

JOSEPHINE TEO: I CAN TELL YOU WHY MY FAMILY AND I ARE ANGRY

My children, who are average in studies but have a strong command of the English language, are being bypassed for higher education in Singapore! We are an average income family and cannot afford extra tuition or overseas education for our three children. Foreigners with very poor command of English are given scholarships and free extra tuition to help them cope with the free education here. What about our own Singaporean children? If free extra tuition was given to me children in Chinese language, they would score sufficiently well, I’m sure.

MERITOCRACY: YOU SHALL SOW WHAT YOU REAP

For an island so small that you can't run a marathon in a straight line in without hitting the sea, Singapore has done extremely well by any account. It has zilch natural resources but today, Singapore outstrips almost all other countries in the world, including countries which are many times its size and have a far longer history than this young nation that hasn't even hit 50. If you want the facts, here they are: Singapore is the 6th best country in the world to be born in (Cllick here) and it comes in fifth in the world on education

MARINA COASTAL EXPRESSWAY (MCE) IS SMOOTH - BUT WHAT ABOUT OTHER EXPRESSWAYS?

Dont juz talk abt MCE. It may be smooth due to higher traffic diverted to other expressways. Pls share the traffic conditions across all expressways, comparing MCE, ECP, KPE, CTE, AYE during peak hours. This would be a better justification than juz talk on MCE. It is not convincing in yr statement.

ARE YOU PROUD OF THE MARINA COASTAL EXPRESSWAY?

I have been using the Marina Coastal Expressway to commute to work since the second day of its opening.With the exception of the severe congestion at the exit to Central Boulevard on my first day driving along the expressway, the subsequent commutes have been relatively smooth. Many people have criticised the expressway’s design and the Land Transport Authority’s (LTA) communication exercise, on both social and mainstream media. Some were reasonable, such as those calling for more and better signage, but others have been too quick to judge.

DELTA SWIMMING POOL SICK UNCLE

I started going swimming at Delta Swimming pool (very near to Redhill MRT station) recently as it is near my working place and along the way home. There is this uncle who wears spectacles and lying on one of the benches in the changing/bathing room. He is always holding a book but when you take note of his eyes he is not reading the book but looking at the other guys who are changing especially the young boys who have just completed their swimming lessons. When i go for my swim he is there, after i have completed my swim he is still there
