GOVT WANT MORE PEOPLE TO BUY BTO FLATS IN YISHUN

So, the government is trying to encourage young people to move into the slum town of Yishun, is it? Is it because they are scared the slum name given to Yishun is catching on online and offline, that;s why must push first time home owners to actually buy the houses there?

Even the Minister for National Development himself, Mr Lawrence Wong, has been deployed to hard sell Yishun BTOs to those buyers. The government also scared the buyers will opt for the mature estates of Geylang and Bidadari instead, which are also released in this exercise. This might mean the take up rate for Yishun and Woodlands will be even lower.

CAUSEWAY DELAYS NOT A RESULT OF CYBER ATTACK, BUT A TECHNICAL GLITCH, SAYS ICA

The ICA had clarified that the slowness of the immigration clearance system at the Woodlands and Tuas checkpoints that caused hundreds of motorists to be stranded in the two causeways, was a result of a technical glitch, and not an act of cyber attack.

This was good to hear, as that means the worldwide cyber attack had not preyed on Singapore's government computer systems, or that the computer systems in Singapore's government organisations are covered well against such attacks. However, this brings the question on why the technical glitch had to happen on the very day people worldwide were worried that the cyber attacks might cripple the running of day-to-day activities. This can be quite serious, as ICA's technical glitch happened at the causeways, essentially Singapore's first point of fight against outside terrorism.
