just few days ago, I went to an atm at the Ci Yuan CC to withdraw some money. While there, I noticed a foreigner from the Philippines with her helper was at the at atm machine and there was a queue behind. She did not insert her card and was not even using the machine.

ERP TOO CHEAP FOR SGREANS!

I applaud to LTA's move to operate the ERP along amount Pleasant entrance to PIE (Changi) and also on PIE (Changi) after Lornie Road during the evening peak hours. This is a great move because traffic there is terrible between 5pm to 8pm where there are so many vehicles heading east back home, we should make private car ownership less affordable so that more people can ditch the idea of owning a car, otherwise roads will be like in the Philippines, havoc! However, I find that the ERP rates for this two gantries are too cheap already, $1 to $2 for cars is nothing.

LIVING IN SENGKANG IS NOW LIKE LIVING IN FOREIGN LAND!

Lately, i have noticed that with all the new flats in Sengkang, it seems like there are more Indian FTs and Pinoys and their families making Sengkang their homes. It's very obvious, during weekends or holidays, these Indian FTs will gather with their families and other Indian FTs neighbours at the multi purpose hall and have a sort of picnic, while the guys play cricket! Then at basketball courts, all the Pinoys will be having their game of basketball, while their wives and families sit at the side and have another Pinoy party. I am Singaporean, but at Sengkang, I feel more and more like I am living in another country!

FILIPINO STAFF: WHY DO LOCAL SHOPPERS GIVE US THE STINK EYE WHEN ASKED IF THEY NEED HELP?

I work in a retail shop in a prominent mall in Orchard and everytime customers walk in, we always greet them with a smile and ask them "can I help?" or "how can I help you?". Most of the local shoppers' response would be "just looking" and some would even feel irritated and give us the stink eye. We on the other hand would just like to understand why are these shoppers afraid of telling us what they need and why don't they let us assist them? Won't shopping be more easier if you'ld let us help them find what they are looking for, than spend minutes "just looking"?
