HDB 99 YEAR LEASE TIME BOMB COULD CAUSE PROPERTY MARKET COLLAPSE

At least TWO PAP Ministers (Khaw Boon Wan & Lawrence Wong) have confirmed my point about the HDB 99 Year Lease being ZERO in value when the lease expired. This is an important critical fact that most Singaporeans have ignored for decades and despite of such reality, Singaporeans are still pumping huge amount of money willingly into HDB resale market which in turn, pushes up the new BTO HDB flats!

GOVT MUST DO ALL THEY CAN TO HELP DISPLACED ELDERLY VENDORS FROM SUNGEI ROAD

NEA said that government agencies will be reaching out to the other users at the Sungei Road Hawking Zone who are not original permit holders, to share information on financial and employment assistance, as well as channels through which they can continue their trade, should they wish to do so.

Let's hope that this is just not saying good things to appease the public. These elderly vendors really do need the government's help in this issue, not least because their main source of income is going to be taken away from them soon. This is not a case of help to continue their trade and help in their financial capabilities should they wish to be helped. They must be helped, one way or another. We cannot neglect them just because they are old and their trade is a disappearing one.

OLD UNCLE ABUSES ELDERLY RIGHTS, TREATS MRT LIKE HIS OWN HOME

We always teach and preach to younger people to give respect to our elders. We assist them, let them be first in queues, assign special lanes for them and even assign specific seats in the train for them. But if your kids see this (Gangsta) Uncle that I saw in the train on my way to Dhoby Ghaut this afternoon, I think they would think twice in giving respect to this old guy.
