WHY MUST EMPHASIZE PRESIDENT SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENT IS TAXI DRIVER SON?

We have to get over this mindset that kids living in HDB flats, go to neighbourhood schools, and father is a taxi driver, while mother is a part time sales assistant looks like he hit the jackpot getting the prestigious award. Face it, anyone can be successful, no matter your background. It is how much you want it, and how you work hard for it, not because you come from a financially well off family or not.

And since when living in a four room HDB flat and going to neighbourhood schools is a humble background?

Seems the media going all out to paint her as the average Singaporean, in touch with the heartlanders. But one thing that jumps out from all this madness, Halimah Yacob was quoted as saying "I don't see why I can't continue, unless of course there are other considerations like security, for instance". Not sure if Halimah Yacob and her neighbours have been following the news lately, but hello! There are other considerations like security, especially with terrorism the world over? Haven't you all heard?

INDIAN TENANT REFUSED TO GIVE UP RENTED HOUSE EVEN WHEN OWNER OFFERED COMPENSATION

I found this Indian senior consultant IT guy who wants to rent it . He bargained for it and I decided to rent out 1200 for the whole unit to him and his gf (from Laos). She is here on holiday. We signed a contract for 2 months. I printed out the standard template agreement from ERA and let him sign. There was no agent involved. I did it myself.

By right on the 10th (couple of days from now) he is supposed to start his tenancy, my housing agent then told me he found a buyer for me already and also then told me actually it's not legal to rent my place for less than 6 months in Singapore.

All these I didn't know because it's the first time I am renting short term for my HDB. I don't wanna do something illegal either. I quickly told my Indian tenant I cannot rent to him anymore and was willing to return him his money immediately but he was very unhappy and wants me to compensate him at least 600 to 700 dollars (or possibly more) for inconvenience and if i don't comply to his amount of money he will go to legal department and HDB to complain about me. He was very aggressive towards me.
