The Singapore Brand, a legacy of LKY that makes Singapore ticks and the role model of the world is taking a bashing in quick succession. It looks like they have buried the Singapore Brand with LKY and a new brand like the Chinatown or Rochore Canal Brand is the new replacement. Honesty and integrity are just two slippery concepts that can be twist and turn to suit the user’s needs.

Nepal's devastating earthquake was the disaster experts knew was coming. Just a week ago, about 50 earthquake and social scientists from around the world came to Kathmandu, Nepal, to figure out how to get this poor, congested, overdeveloped, shoddily built area to prepare better for the big one, a repeat of the 1934 temblor that leveled this city.
After my article on “I am disappointed with IDA defending their worker with a fake degree”, I was happy that IDA FINALLY proceeded with a full investigation on 21 April 2015. You can imagine my utter shock when they revealed yesterday that their investigation has completed and declared that NISHA was unaware that Southern Pacific University was a degree mill.
Dear IDA Thank you for your honest reply for the honest mistake of Nisha, a new-citizen employee. IDA’s reply has also confirmed the existence of PAP’s unwritten ‘instant degrees accepted’ policy for all foreign graduates working for the government. Nisha is clearly remorseful for depriving other better qualified SINGAPOREANS from being employed by IDA – she has removed her bogus MBA from her Linkedin account.
I know of a fellow Singaporean, a qualified lawyer and has a law degree from NUS who was recently retrenched due to restructuring at the law firm. He applied for 82 jobs, called up for 5 interviews, including one from public service and another from civil service. To date, he has not received an offer. The search for a job started months ago. I know he's not fussy and willing to take on any job even if it means a pay cut.
One Moment in Time The week of National Mourning was a momentous event. We all felt it - the seven days when Singaporeans stood as one, united in our sense of gratitude, appreciation and respect for Mr Lee as well as our sadness at his passng, our pride in Singapore and being Singaporean - and conscious of the legacy that is now ours to take forward.
