Rats Having Buffet At Ang Mo Kio Rubbish Bin, Is This What S'poreans Get For Paying Conservancy Charges?

Is this what Singaporeans get despite paying conservancy charges? Why can't the authorities do their basic duties properly?

In 2015, the output will be close to 9.1 million metric tons of plastic, Jambeck and her colleagues estimate.

FOREIGN EXPAT: DEAR SINGAPORE, I OWE YOU AN APOLOGY

So dear Singapore, I think I owe you an apology – for underestimating you, for judging you before I knew you, for typecasting you, for thinking of you as one-dimensional and not believing in you and all you have to offer. You have shown me that if only we open ourselves to new beginnings and new adventures, life has some unexpected and wonderful surprises in store for us. I didn’t want to move here initially and now I don’t feel like leaving. One thing I know for sure: I will never leave you Singapore; instead I will take a piece of you with me in my heart, no matter where I go in the world.
