WHEN YOU EAT CHILLI CRAB, DO YOU GET ANGRY BECAUSE YOUR CRAB IS A "FOREIGNER"?

THEREALSINGAPORE 2 August 2014 - 10:46am

Singapore has won several medals at the Commonwealth Games. However, I have seen some online comments questioning the authenticity of some of the winners’ national identity and whether they are qualified enough to represent Singapore. Those who posted such comments are mistaken about sports competitions and what these represent.

THEREALSINGAPORE 2 August 2014 - 10:17am

On the 26th, we were alerted to the fact that this ad was in the NDP Funpack. We pondered long and hard as to our response. We ask that you share this far and wide AND with your MPs, to alert/advise them of this NDP travesty – that Singapore has become about acquisition and little about life values. Living animals are not furniture or electronic goods that can be returned if all instalments are not paid. Has Singapore lost her soul this National Day?

THEREALSINGAPORE 2 August 2014 - 8:35am

Since 1 August, all employers need to advertise in JobsBank for 14 days to give Singaporeans a better chance at jobs. Already, netizens are boo-ing the idea saying that this may not help much in undoing the damage caused by PAP. Some netizens say that during this 14 days, employers can still moan to MOM that they cannot find any suitable locals and will appeal for help.

Two American medical missionaries diagnosed with the deadly Ebola virus in Liberia could be back in the USA next week for treatment at a special medical isolation unit at Atlanta's Emory University Hospital, the U.S. State Department said Friday.
