TRUE FITNESS IN SINGAPORE STILL VIABLE AFTER THAILAND AND MALAYSIAN CLOSURES?

Will they or won't they? I am a member of the True Fitness chain, having just signed up in March this year. With news that True Fitness have closed all of their outlets in Thailand and Malaysia, but also announced an aggressive expansion plans in China.

Now, I am worried that these expansion plans were only rolled out to assure Singaporean members like myself that True Fitness are ok. But look at them. The reality is, they abruptly closed in Thailand and Malaysia. Isn't this signs of a company in financial trouble?

SINGAPORE STILL TRYING TO GET BANK ROBBER AND HIS LOOT TO RETURN FROM THAILAND

Singapore authorities have moved to assure Singaporeans that they are still in touch with the Thai authorities with regards to the request to return the Canadian man who robbed a Standard Chartered Bank in Singapore last year.

The man, David Roach, was sentenced to 14 months in a Thai jail for violating money laundering and Customs laws by bringing the loot into the country. He was the first man in more than a decade to have successfully robbed a bank here, walking out with $30,000 with little more than a threatening note. He then subsequently fled to Thailand before he could be arrested here, but have spent the rest of his time in a jail in Bangkok. Media reports in Thailand quoted Roach's lawyer as saying that the Canadian admitted only to smuggling currency to Thailand, but not to the Singapore robbery.

THAIS CHARGED STANDARD CHARTERED BANK ROBBER WITH MONEY LAUNDERING

Remember the Canadian man who robbed the Standard Chartered bank in Holland Village in July last year? Apparently, he was still spending his time in a Thailand jail all this past year, but finally, the Thais have charged him for a crime.

The man, David Roach, 28, was charged by the Thai authorities of violating money laundering and customs laws by bringing the loot from his daring robbery into the country. The Thai courts sentenced him to 14 months in jail. He had used just a threatening note to walk away from the Standard Chartered bank branch with US$22,0000. This was a rare case of a bank robbery in Singapore, whose zero-tolerance stance to crime has made it one of Asia's safest cities.

THAI MAN SLITS DAUGHTER'S THROAT FOR SPENDING TOO MUCH TIME ON FACEBOOK

A 41 year old Thai man was arrested for slitting his 13 year old daughter's throat and locking her in a rented house after arguing about the amount of time she spent on Facebook.

He was arrested at a Thai checkpoint while trying to escape.

His wife said he has a violent temper and would hit his daughter for spending too much time on social media and neglecting her studies. He once threatened to kill his family because he was worried that his wife will go back to her former lover. The man was also wanted in relation to a murder case a few years back.

His daughter is currently in serious condition under close medical supervision.

How can he do that to his own daughter? Poor child!
