YOUR HDB FLAT, YOUR HOME, YOUR ASSET???

I find that HDB all this while have not been doing what they have been advertising. I am a middle income earner, earning a moderate income of $1.8k per month for the past few years. I have been applying for a flat from HDB for numerous times and yet have not got any. Surprisingly, the first time I submitted my HLE, it came back with a 90k loan which is seriously low.

KHAW, WHAT WERE YOU DOING WHEN YOU WERE THE HEALTH MINISTER?

While you were heading the Ministry of Health, WHAT WERE YOU DOING to allow such a situation to arise? You did not even add 1 single hospital bed despite the millions of FTs your government imported. This is about the ill and sick and you call yourself a good Buddhist? Are you not afraid of Kama for the suffering you caused to these ill and sick people due to your gross negligent on the job which you demanded to be paid in millions of dollars a year?

It is now literally impossible for most people working in my sector to even survive decently because of the way the government has managed the IT outsourcing and let in so many foreigners in our sector. This is not a matter of changing times, but a flawed mentality of the government has made things really hard for the average man working in IT.

ILO ILO (爸妈不在家 / Ba Ma Bu Zai Jia)

Who would have guessed that Singapore's film of the moment, and possibly of this year, has its English title refer to a location outside of the little red dot, a city that was never even mentioned in the film. And this was also the case for its Chinese title, although the phrase was possibly the key reason why its youngest key character got up to his shenanigans for the most parts, reflecting a social norm for double income families in the city state, where kids are often left growing up under the watchful eyes of domestic workers instead.

Zai Shun Curry Fish Head: How to get a head in 2014

in my opinion, Zai Shun is the 2nd best place in Singapore to go for super fresh steamed fish. I am still looking for the best. Not only do they carry a fantastic selection of fish that you would not be able to find anywhere else, they also sell it at an incredibly competitive price.

Stayers and quitters, patriots and opportunists

A Malaysian Chinese daily has just reported that it carried out a survey which shows that 87 per cent of Malaysians working in Singapore are not interested in taking up citizenship here because “all they want was to earn ‘Sing’ dollars,” and that “they love their homeland Malaysia deeply”.
