IMPOSE FINE ON THOSE WHO CHOPE TABLES, NO TISSUE OR UMBRELLAS PLEASE!

A forummer suggested to impose a fine on those who chope tables! He thinks people should not claim the whole table for themselves especially if they are only part of a small group. He said those who do so should pay a fine of about $1,000.

He disagreed with those who use tissue packets, umbrellas or their staff pass to chope tables as he thinks someone should be physically there to reserve seats.

He said hawker centres can put up signs to warn people that there will be a fine. While he knows this is not exactly the best way to change people's behaviour, he thinks imposing a fine is the most immediate and effective method.

Do you think this is a fine idea?

LIM SWEE SAY SAYS: UNEMPLOYMENT TO RISE BUT WE'LL EMERGE STRONGER

Manpower Minister Lim Swee Say has said that we will experience a rise in unemployment rate. In his May Day message, he said some sectors are still struggling with structural changes and would need more time to get through this stressful period.

Although the unemployment rate for Singaporean workers rose to 3% last year, Mr Lim told people not to worry as he is sure the economy is still growing.

He said while there is no shortcut to success, he is convinced that we will emerge stronger from this as long as employers and workers are faster in coping with challenges and adjusting to new environments.

Don't say metal rice bowl, got wooden rice bowl must be happy already.

MINISTER NG CHEE MENG: SCHOOL MERGER IS PAINFUL BUT NECESSARY, LET'S GO THROUGH THIS TOGETHER

Finally, Minister for Education (Schools) Ng Chee Meng spoke up about school mergers. He posted on Facebook that it is a "painful but necessary decision" which he himself "agonised" over.

He still believes this is the best decision even after considering other possibilities. He explained that some JCs will not even be able to fill half of its intake if they were left by themselves, and this will negatively affect students' educational experiences.

"My educators and I think this cannot be good for our students. We do not take school mergers lightly. We only proceeded with these mergers as we are sure it is for the better for our students to come."

He knows some people will feel a sense of loss but assured that their heritage will be kept alive although he did not say how it can be done. It is not an easy transition but he hopes everyone can go through this difficult journey together.

Get ready ok, must go through ups and downs together.
