DENGUE CASES EXPECTED TO RISE THIS YEAR, NO SOLUTION FROM NEA

NEA has just announced that they expect the dengue cases in Singapore to increase in the months ahead. Apparently all the efforts made to stem the tide of dengue since last year will not be bale to stop the numbers from increasing.

Makes you wonder if the steps taken are adequate enough, or it was just a short-term measure to placate the Singaporean public. It was also reported that the number of dengue cases in Singapore last year was 13,115, which was way lower than the projected 30,000 cases. Was this a case of the short-term measure taken being super effective, or the projected number was grossly over-estimated, so it will paint a better picture when actual numbers released.

PLASTIC RICE SERVED IN BAH KUT TEH SHOP IN MALAYSIA

I actually experienced the taste of plastic rice just now at a shop we used to frequent. I told the owner about the rice and he said he was not aware of this. It is tasteless and cannot be broken up. Tried to break it up with my fingers but it stays in shape. Of course we left the rice alone. Owner didn't charge us for the rice and promised he will look into it.

SG WILL REMOVE VEP CHARGE IF M'SIA DOES THE SAME. TIT-FOR-TAT GAME CONTINUES

The Transport Ministry has issued a statement indicating that they will discontinue the recently announced VEP charge on non-Singapore vehicles entering the country, if Malaysia remove their own VEP or start charging VEP in their other bothers, thus indicating that the charges are not discriminatory against Singapore vehicles.

While this is good, it just confirms that the VEP charge made by Singapore was simply a tit-for-tat response to Malaysia's. The two governments playing a petty game, and the result is that citizens of both country lose out.

MALAY WEDDING GUESTS PAY RESPECTS AS CHINESE FUNERAL PROCESSION PASSES BY

A CHINESE FUNERAL & A MALAY WEDDING: I was having lunch at the void deck of Blk 256 Pasir Ris when I saw a funeral procession passing by slowly. Some wedding guests were standing along the side of the void deck to show respect. THIS IS SO SINGAPORE! But the van carrying the deceased was about to pass there, with family members on foot. I stood still to show respect. A few of them noticed and nodded. I nodded back.

SPF CRIME PREVENTATION TALK: GIRLS ARE "ASKING FOR IT" WHEN THEY WEAR SHORT SKIRTS

My 13 year old daughter ran out of a guest lecture in tears on Monday. It was a talk on crime prevention by a member of the Police Force. But somewhere between warning them about sexual predators and taking precautions came some very disturbing statements about how girls are 'responsible' and 'asking for it' if they wear short skirts because the boys 'can't help themselves'. Even though the students, boys included raised their concerns, the Teachers didn't step in to mediate this very dangerous narrative. The room was visibly agitated and apparently the kids got a scolding from the teacher in charge after the guest left for being 'rude' and asking him 'difficult' questions.

Due to huge crowd requiring to get onto this bus service—the few buses in my area: Buangkok Crescent, Buangkok Green and Hougang St 91, that can get to AMK MRT, there are many instances where the residents around my area cannot get onto the buses. Sometimes, we cannot alight onto four buses consecutively!

WP BERNARD CHEN: GOVT NEEDS TO HELP FUNERAL INDUSTRY

The oversight of my profession is long overdue. A profession shrouded in mystery, a gross understatement. While many of my counterparts perform their duties to the highest of standards, anecdotal evidence abounds of others who prey on the grieving to inflate fees. It puts many of our good work to shame.
