A 75 year old woman suffered injuries after a 2kg block of wood fell and hit her on the head. The incident happened at around 11.30am yesterday as she was walking home from the market at North Bridge Road. Passers by gathered around her after hearing a loud noise followed by her screams. The woman called the police after her forehead swelled and she was feeling dizzy. She also injured her left eye and was sent to the hospital for treatment. She has since been discharged. Strangely, nobody knows where the piece of wood came from while some speculated it may have been from the air ventilation pipe nearby.

AGE IS NOT A FACTOR IN APPOINTMENT FOR TOP POSTS

We have the opposition MP questioning whether the appointment was constitutional because of his age. After all, an Article in the Constitution said the AG must leave the office when he turns 60, if he had hold the post for some time before that. Then we have the government saying the appointment was in accordance with the Constitution, with even a precedent being mentioned in the form of Judge of Appeal Chao Hick Tin, who was 63 when appointed as Attorney-General for a two-year term. Govt said age does not matter, what matters is the suitability of the candidate.

All good and well, but do we see this happening to the average Singaporean?

So my friend went for every interview – he didn’t have a choice

HELP! MY HUSBAND IS TURNING INTO A DIRTY OLD MAN

I WILL come right out and say it - I am married to a "dirty old man". One day, he left his handphone at home and I found several sexually explicit messages from some woman. He had been calling her and some other women very frequently. Also, he had been going out nearly every night and spending the occasional weekend away "for work". One day, a package of pills arrived for him. He claimed they were health supplements, but after checking, I found out they were sex stimulants. I was furious, frustrated and depressed and until today, I cannot bring myself to be in the same room as him or to even hear his voice. I can never forgive him or love him anymore.

KUDOS TO FOREIGN WORKER WHO HELPED OLD LADY CROSS ROAD SAFELY

According to Lina, the traffic was heavy at the time, but that did not deter the worker from helping the old woman who was struggling to cross the road on her own. The construction worker immediately stopped his work to help the elderly woman cross the street at Science Park Road. I would like to applaud him for his actions and hope to highlight the better side of our foreign workers in Singapore.
