Local Mega Church, New Creation Church, recently made headlines after US Lifestyle website RichestLifestyle.com named the senior pastor Joseph Prince as the World’s 10th Richest Pastor. The website had listen Prince’s net worth as US$5 million, (S$6.25 million) and said his annual salary was US$550,000 (S$700,000). The Church has now come out with a rebuttal to the claims.

I was profoundly sadden as a fellow Chinese when Hong Kong Chief executive Leong Chun Ying made the following statement about the current political system: “you look at the meaning of the words ‘broadly representative,’ it’s not numeric representation.” “You have to take care of all the sectors in Hong Kong as much as you can,” “and if it’s entirely a numbers game and numeric representation, then obviously you would be talking to half of the people in Hong Kong who earn less than $1,800 a month.”
At about 7:30am on Monday morning, commuters travelling on the East-West Line were met with large crowds and delays yet they were left completely in the dark about what was going on. SMRT failed to make any official announcement on the trains affected and they did not publicise the issues on their social media accounts.

The PAP claims it has the best and the brightest in the government but, in reality, has managed to deliver only a falling standard of living for ordinary Singaporeans over the past few decades.

Never mind what people think”.

One wonders what contribution this foreigner and those like him has to make to Singapore. He “don’t work directly with Singaporeans for the most part”, nor “do much work for Singaporean companies”. In short, he is isolated pretty much in his expat circle, contributing nothing to Singapore.
President Tony Tan Keng Yam visited the UK and was warmly welcomed by the UK officials and the Royal Family. One of the things which was announced during Tony Tan’s visit was that the Royal Commonwealth Society of Singapore was going to be re-established and it would provide a new scholarship to Singaporeans looking to create innovative ties with the UK.
Malaysia's Defence Minister Hishammuddin Hussein said Wednesday his country was determined to find missing Flight MH370, as he was briefed by Australian officials leading the complex search deep in the Indian Ocean. Hishammuddin, who is in the Western Australian port of Fremantle to inspect one of the search ships, the GO Phoenix, said the passengers and crew on board the Malaysia Airlines jet "remain in our thoughts and also in our prayers".
I knew that Yao Ming’s parents are very tall. Though his father, at 6’7, arguably contributed less than his mother, at 6’3, which is farther above the female mean in standard deviation units.
