PAP's Executive Condo Cooling Measures Destroy Hopes of Buyers

Another government agency has taken their turn to implement new cooling measures. The Ministry of National Development (MND) announced yesterday that they are introducing three new measures to better align the Executive Condominium (EC) Scheme with other public housing. And what a smack down it is. Here, we take a look at them and why the dream of owning an EC may have faded for many:

URA now says to ‘engage’ NSS but can one trust URA?

In this respect, the Nature Society also said in its criticism earlier, “Some parks are called nature parks but to what extent they are permanent in the sense of not being subjected to development in the future is not guaranteed nor clear.” And even if the government gives a ‘guarantee’ now for the current plan, it can still decide to change its mind some years down the road, as revealed by the Nature Society. For example, it noted that Mandai Mangrove, Khatib Bongsu, Pulau Semakau and the four Coral Zones were designated as “Nature Areas” in the original 1993 Singapore Green Plan. However, they were quietly removed from the 2012 revised Singapore Green Plan.

LIFE AS A CHANGI AIRPORT SCREENING OFFICER WITH CERTIS CISCO AVIATION SECURITY

I want to share with you and your readers life as a Screening Officer with Certis Cisco Aviation Security Pte Ltd in Changi Airport Terminal 3. For a reputable company which proudly boasts about its good work ethics, its 3M Model (Man, Method, Machine) and good working conditions for its employees. It is quite hypocritical. A standard over view for a full time Screening Officer:

2014 NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS: MY WISHLIST FOR PAP

These aspirations show that Singaporeans want a kinder, less materialistic and more inclusive society, and quality growth at a slower pace. But your chorus of fear-mongering (see here, here, here and here) on the “tradeoffs” of slower growth only goes to show how disconnected you are from society.After a fateful 2013 that began with your resounding electoral defeat, ended with the first ever riot in decades and was filled with incidents of incompetence in between, perhaps you should take 2014 as a year of introspection. Listen more, talk less.

ARE YOU SURE SG’S UNEMPLOYMENT RATE IS SO LOW?

We do have a lot of PMETs who have lost their jobs and have no choice but to take up taxi, property and insurance licenses. They want their old job but are doing temp now. And I’m sure, for taking up such jobs even though it is out of necessity, the government will still consider them to be “employed”. The good economy is derived from overtaxing Singaporeans and casinos. Citizens have not really benefited. But to continue to hoodwink the public into believing that a good economy means many good jobs, they are “fixing the stats” through various means. With so many unemployed and underemployed people around me, how can I believe the government’s unemployment figure?

More army bases than hospitals in S’pore

Are army bases more important than citizens’ health? Face the fact, Internet is defeating Singapore Propaganda House. They have been in power because of their grip on the media. What problems? All the problems and the evil side of PAP are being brushed aside by the devilishly clever Singapore Propaganda House. Reading the Singapore Propaganda House’s depiction of the 50 years of PAP rule is like watching an Indian movie, where the heroes are always right and they always win. The result? Singapore is now becoming a third world country. The worst part is their inept performances are being rewarded with monstrously huge salaries beyond our imagination. What kind of leaders are we having in Singapore?

Singapore ranks top 10 expensive cities once again

It is interesting to note that amongst the top 10 most expensive cities in the world, 5 out of 7 of the countries that the cities are situated in all operate on a minimum wage system. San Francisco (ranked 9th) has the highest minimum wage of S$12.65 per hour, followed by New York (ranked 5th) with a minimum wage of S$9 per hour. Even Switzerland, the only country that does not have an official minimum wage other than Singapore, is slowly gearing towards operating based on a minimum wage system – with the Swiss residents being able to vote on whether they want to have this system or not.
