HOW CAN OUR PRESIDENT BE A CHECK ON THE GVT IF HE/SHE IS FROM THE SAME PARTY?

Our reader highlighted the lackluster employment scene in Singapore despite presidential hopeful Halimah Yacob's praise about gaining much from the years she spent fighting for workers' rights. He believed it is only fair if the President was never from the ruling party as it defeats the purpose of checking on the Government.

FOLLOWING NTU, NTUC REMOVES CHINESE SIGNS AT CHOA CHU KANG FOODCOURT

A reader was appalled at the removal of Chinese language signs at NTUC Foodfare at Choa Chu Kang. The foodcourt has just opened after undergoing a facelift. "Many elderly patrons were perplexed on the first day of its recent reopening and had asked staff at the counters to translate the menus before they placed an order. This oversight is detrimental to Singapore’s efforts to foster a bilingual environment against a backdrop of today’s younger generation being increasingly unable to master their mother tongue. I hope that Foodfare could at least use Chinese on signboards in its locations where many of the residents are elderly, for their reference."

BIG SUPERMARKET CHAINS SHOULD GIVE FRUITS TO CHILDREN FOR FREE

A great idea just hit me. Why don't our supermarkets, like NTUC, Cold Storage and Giant, organize free fruits for children like they do overseas? One of my observations in NZ is that they actually do have such a programme for the children there. Besides NZ, I believe many European countries too, carry out similar schemes.

Because of Singapore's hectic lifestyle, many of us neglect consuming fruits in our regular diets. Hopefully, by having this kind of programmes, it could raise awareness for young parents to inculcate a balanced diet for their children. This kind of good eating habits should definitely start from young. It also helps young families ease a bit of their economic constraints that they might be struggling financially to afford a nutritious diet for our precious future generations.

Surely, the big corporations can alleviate a bit of their costs to offer free fruits to children, so that they can enjoy the fruits, as well as develop a healthy habit of eating fruits?

WOMAN FINDS LIVE INSECT PACKED TOGETHER WITH NTUC'S CHICKEN FILLET

A Facebook user complained about finding an insect in her packaged chicken fillet from NTUC. She said the fly was still (packed) alive! "Bought this at NUH Ntuc this morning 6.6.17. There's a fly in it. This chicken fillet was packed yesterday. When I open the pack, the fly was still moving. Ntuc should do a check seriously since there has been cases of insects 'packed together'. I got to throw this pack away for fear of maggots."

After payment was made by the victim, she discovered that the envelope contained only S$250 worth of NTUC vouchers. The suspect then became uncontactable.
