MALAYSIAN WRITER: SINGAPORE DRIVERS MUST ABIDE TO OUR LAWS

OF late, there has been a series of road accidents involving Singapore-registered vehicles on Malaysian roads. The disregard for our traffic laws by some drivers from the neighbouring country is cause for concern. Just yesterday, I saw a Singapore-registered vehicle speeding in the right lane on the North South Expressway near Sungai Buloh.

Public consultation on PDPA guidelines for real estate, telecommunication sectors launched

An enquiry about a property from a potential customer should not be seen as a real estate agent having an ongoing relationship with the individual. The same goes for a customer who had bought a property once from a real estate agent. This means that under the Do Not Call Registry exemption order, the agent should not be marketing other properties to such customers. Telco operators too, may need to abide by certain guidelines when handling personal data of pre-paid card customers.

Marry Gay Daughter & Get $1 Billion Dollars

A Hong Kong tycoon may double a "marriage bounty" to find a male suitor for his gay daughter to HK$1 billion (S$165 million), despite his initial offer attracting 20,000 candidates, a report said. Two years ago, wealthy property developer Cecil Chao made global headlines by offering a reward of HK$500 million (S$83 million) to any man who could persuade daughter Gigi to marry.

SINGAPORE, MY HOME, WHERE I BELONG

To the uninitiated, let me break it down for you. There are generally two kinds of expats - those that earn top dollar and live in swanky black and white homes just like how the British of old used to, and those who live in 3-roomed HDB flats, are employed on local terms, have (and use) their EZ-link cards on a daily basis, and own several sets of the standard Ah Pek uniform. You know, the standard issue - white tattered Double Pagoda singlets with matching (or not) Bata slippers. My man belongs to the latter group. To say that he blends in is an understatement. He orders kaya toasts and kopi-c-kosong without me having to hold his hand. He's a regular local angmoh, he is.

THE PR CASE FOR ANTON CASEY

So Singapore’s most reviled expat Anton Casey has hired Fulford, a public relations firm, to burnish his tattered image. His “case’’ has made headlines in the United Kingdom so that his home country knows what a loud lout he’s been in Singapore. Even his company has come out to distance itself from him. Since he has apologised etc and we good Singaporeans should really move on but can’t seem to, here’s some unsolicited advice for his PR firm to help out their client.

ARE THESE CAUCASIANS REAL FOREIGN TALENTS?

I know a Brit who runs an investment firm for private clients. Basically, it is a one-man office. Unfortunately, we belong to the same alma mater, but he is on the dark side. It was ugly, but it was an example of foreign trash, not talent. What makes this matter disgraceful is the people supporting this Brit are Singaporeans who are engulfed by greed. To give this Brit the benefit of the doubt, maybe he is talented to con. Shall I call him "Con Artist"?

PAP MINISTER K SHANMUGAM RESPONDS TO ANTON CASEY INCIDENT

I have been asked what I thought of Mr Anton Casey and his statements. Like many Singaporeans, I am terribly upset and offended by what he has posted. Deeply offensive, wrong, and unacceptable. Those who have done well in life should always be looking out for others - especially the less well-off or needy. It is basic human decency. Instead Mr Casey showed contempt. Having money and a Porsche, does not automatically mean that one is superior. Character is important.

Singapore: Why is Ayer Rajah Expressway AYE instead of ARE?

So I actually asked Land Transport Authority, not expecting them to entertain such a Bo Liao (frivolous) question. It's good to know someone in the government actually has a sense of humour too.
Forgive our delay in replying to your 5 December email query but we did need some time to find the source to answer your question. The acronym for expressways is derived from the first letter of the first two syllables, followed by the first letter of the last word.
