F&B OUTLET PLEDGES TO NOT INCREASE FOOD & DRINK PRICES DESPITE 30% WATER FEE HIKE

We saw this notice at Serangoon Bus Interchange by the NTWU Canteen which pledged to not increase prices of their food and drinks despite the 30% hike in water prices. Really respect this F&B outlet for having the guts to do this. More coffeeshops should adopt this ethical way of doing business and not use every little excuse to increase their profits.

REGARDLESS OF RACE, LANGUAGE, OR RELIGION ARE JUST WORDS ON THE PLEDGE

PM Lee's revelation that race and religion is a factor in Singapore's next choice of Prime Minister, as well the Elected Presidency being reserved for the Malays this time around because Malays need to be well-represented, have really shaken my believe about Singapore's pledge of unbiasedness towards race or religion.

This statement by the PM really stung. Have we been misled all this while, when we say the pledge "regardless of race, language or religion"? PM Lee's statement clearly flies against our very own pledge. If even after 50 years, we still cannot look beyond race and religion, then we have a lot more growing up to do.
