NOT SAFE TO LIVE IN NEW GEYLANG FLATS, THEY'RE LIKE SLUMS OF SUSPICIOUS PEOPLE

Our reader warned against living in the new Geylang BTO flats as the area still sees suspicious characters loitering around. He claims that his neighbour's daughter was molested in the vicinity. He thinks the area is not safe for families and expects it to become yet another slum. "I wonder why the government doesn't know about this 2-room and 3-room flat problem. Why not mix it up?

CALLS FOR TIGHTER RULES ON JACKPOT MACHINES BY MP, MANY YEARS TOO LATE

Funny, because the calls only come now in the wake of the CAD investigations on the alleged misuse of Club funds in the FAS and Bill Ng saga. These clubhouses have been around for ages, and their presence and the income they generated are not exactly secrets. In fact, many times a football club have indicated that they jackpot machines are actually a steady source of huge income for their clubs to run their operations.

Funny, because now the MPs are all making noises, when in fact the could have done so before this become a matter of public interest. Are these MP jumping on the bandwagon to make their presence known, and their roles as MP, relevant?

Funny, because at the centre of this storm, was an ex MP and PAP man himself, Zainudin Nordin. He certainly did not voice out for tighter rules on jackpot operations. He, of all people, should know about the existence of the machines. After all, he was the FAS president. He cannot claim ignorance, can he?

A lot of people have left comments saying that Westgate is encouraging people to be materialistic. A lot of people have also said that ang baos come from the heart and people should not be pressured into giving something beyond their means.

S'PORE GIRL: NOTHING WRONG WITH WANTING A HUSBAND WHO EARNS AT LEAST $7K

Women are by and large maternalistic creatures. It may be conscious or subconscious but wanting the best for your offspring often weighs heavily on the minds of women. Income naturally comes into play. Just because your husband is rich doesn't mean your family would be happy. Of course. But having a healthier income means that more doors are open to your children. In all honesty, declaring a desired income for a partner means that the guy has a visible target. Its not an necessarily an impossible task. Compare that with wanting big boobs with skin that remains smooth forever. That is hardly achievable.
