EX-RESIDENT: BUKIT BATOK ESTATE IS FILTHY SO SDP NEEDS TO TAKE OVER THE TOWN COUNCIL!

During my 15yrs stay in Bukit Batok, my block was very very dirty. No block cleaner at all. The drunkards here and there were sleeping at the void deck. So much adult urine was produced by groups of overnight drunkards living under our block and was not cleaned away. Our running water pipe became the breeding place for huge centipedes. And centipedes were seen running around into our store room. After I moved out of Bt. Batok, in 2010, my block and neighbourhood areas worsened. Drug mules lured young students to buy their drugs and several turned drug addicts. A few saloons turned red light at night. We need an opposition party to take over Bukit Batok town council and improve the standard of cleanliness in the estate. BB residents, please vote wisely.

GIANT SUPERVISOR THINKS I’M TRYING TO CHEAT HIM WHEN I WANTED REFUND FOR SPOILT RICE

Bought a packet of Kangaroo calrose rice at the Giant outlet opposite of Redhill MRT. When I picked up the top pack, there was a whiff of rotten smell. The counter lady told me there has been a rotten smell since the morning and suspected that could be dead rats from outside the store. When I went for my cheng teng at the hawker centre, I thought my fingers smelt weird, like faeces. I checked the back of the rice packet and saw brown stains and on closer inspection, the rice in the packet looks mouldy. The supervisor checked the rice and asked me how many days since I bought the rice to which I produced the receipt and the counter lady also told him that I bought it 10 mins ago. He then told me that he will certainly refund me and made comments that how could the rice turn out this way and why did I even bring it for payment in the first place. He then asked me to follow him to rice aisle and brought up a few packets to show me that their rice are in okay condition to which I replied that it could be the only one and all I want is a refund.

According to the Auditor General's Report released yesterday, the National Environment Agency has failed in its rodent surveillance and control programs for a simple reason - according to NEA documents, "the contractor in carrying out routine surveillance on rodent situations in public areas was only required to treat burrows in areas under NEA's purview and not those under the purview of other public agencies."

BIG FAT RATS CONTINUE TO RUN FREE IN BUKIT BATOK ESTATE

The residents of one Bukit Batok Avenue 8 estate hope to win the battle against their nocturnal adversaries. But the dozens of rats, which have invaded the estate, are difficult to catch. Traps have been set and fences leading ground-floor flats have been added to rear gates with the intention to prevent the rats from entering homes. But when The New Paper visited the estate, some residents said that their traps were empty and the rats could still be seen scampering from to sides of buildings to open rubbish chutes.
