A GIRLFRIEND'S EXPERIENCE WITH NS AND RESERVISTS

The second year of his NS stint, I was back and I’d started working. We had dates on the weekend and some times on the week days. It was nice, except for the part where he complains about the NS stuff. I didn’t understand why he was so pissed off at doing NS but since I wasn’t the one in his shoes, I just kept my mouth shut. Because the then-boyfriend hate NS, I thought that all men had the same thought. Until I met Dude. Dude enjoyed his NS. He had fun and didn’t regret any part of it. It was refreshing to hear someone who said that it was his duty to serve the country, instead of how much he hated NS and wished that the government would abolish it.

With more and more moneylenders in the heartlands, borrowers are beginning to have the mentality that if one is rejected by a moneylender he or she could easily go to another. Some borrowers also believe they could borrow from one moneylender to pay off another, possibly leaving many heartlanders in long-term debt.

While some may complain about the drop of quality in food and service over the years, especially in the economy class, the taste is still a mile above (pun not intended) some of the other airlines.

These groups will finally enjoy some overdue relief for their travel needs, for which the public and the WP have lobbied for years. The concessions, however, should not be used as a sweetener to make the latest fare increases palatable.

PAP MP JOSEPHINE TEO ATTACKS WORKERS PARTY

The Workers’ Party never misses an opportunity to pander and its response to the fare review exercise was, to a large extent, predictable. First, they claimed credit for the concessions.
