JURONG POLYCLINIC FEMALE DOCTOR LOOKS DOWN ON NSMAN

The doctor said to me that: "Shin pain is nothing boy, you need to exercise regularly. I give you some medicine and you can go." I was not happy with her reply as if I want to chao keng. Than I told the doc again, "Doc, I had previous injuries during NS when I fall off the low ramp." Doc replied. "Listen low ramp didn't cause your injury, it's just because you didn't exercise regularly. My daughter is stronger than you, she had shin pain before and she's able to cope. Why can't you do that?

Mr Lee Kuan Yew visited SAFTI MI in Aug 1995 before the unit's opening ceremony. As you know, SAFTI's nearest MRT station back then was Boon Lay, a distance away.

Lee replied "How can our NS boys reach camp on time? Did you arrange the army tonners to pick them up?". The Commandant replied "No". Then Lee stared at the Commandant, turned to then Defence Minister Dr Tony Tan and said "Can you please arrange for ferry buses to pick up our NS boys as soon as possible? Four waves in the morning and four waves in the evening."

TAN CHENG BOCK: GOVT SHOULD USE MEDIATION & NOT COURTS TO SETTLE DISPUTES

It is indeed sad that the issue has turned sour and legal action was resorted to. Singapore is aiming to be an IP (Intellectual Property ) Hub and because of our reputation, we can succeed. So this unfortunate dispute is going to cause damage to what we want to achieve. Dr Ting is a Singaporean and has world-wide reputation as an inventor. Let's settle such disputes through mediation without the need to resort to the courts. This will save time, cost and face for all parties.
