MALAYSIA CARES MORE FOR THEIR UNDERPRIVILEGED, SG LEAVES IT TO PHILANTHROPISTS

Yet, housing policies continue to disadvantage single parents, expressing the assumption that as a society, we are fine with these families being penalised. Whether this is consciously intended or not, relegating their housing problems to the realm of philanthropy amounts to further acceptance of this assumption”.

Do single mothers in Malaysia face the discriminatory policies that we have here in Singapore? So, another obviously glaring question after reading the above cited two articles on the same day is – why is it that public housing in Singapore cost many times more than Malaysia?

IS CHAS CARDS ANY USE IF MAJORITY DON'T KNOW HOW TO USE IT?

I was somewhat puzzled by the above statistics, as it would appear that about 615,000 (1.3 million – 685,000) Singaporeans with Chas cards did not go to see a medical or dental clinic at all in the whole of last year. Since as I understand it – the patient’s net bill after the Chas subsidy at a private clinic may be even lower than at a polyclinic – the figure seemed even more puzzling.

Well, the answer may lie in the fact that Chas Orange card holders do not get any subsidy at all for “common illnesses (e..g. cough and cold)”. For dental care – there is no subsidy for 11 (the most common) out of the 19 dental procedures for Chas orange card holders.
