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. But check this out from Superfusion: How China and America Became One Economy and Why the World’s Prosperity Depends on It:
Mdm Yap Biew Keow, 81, had been staying in the same flat as her 55 year old intellectually challenged daughter for over 30 years but Mdm Yap failed to notice that her daughter had passed away despite sleeping in the same room with the corpse for 4 days. It was not until their downstairs neighbour, Mdm Nekmah Mahadi, 45, came to visit that they realised that the woman was dead.
Sunday’s ‘I want to touch a dog’ event was a success with almost 1,000 people turning up but many Malays have taken offence at photos of Muslims petting and holding dogs. After receiving accolades from many Malaysians over his charity work, Syed Azmi Alhabshi has now become the subject of death threats and accusations of apostasy by countless fellow Muslim-Malays online. The Malays, furious at his audacity in organising an event to educate the public on Islam’s stance on dogs, have circulated his mobile number online, while on WhatsApp, messages claiming he is a Christian in disguise have spread like wildfire.
The Police explained that they are on track to finish installing a CCTV camera on every HDB block by the end of 2016. MPs and town councils have also supported the installations saying that residents are generally happy with the cameras and the increased security that they bring. MP for Nee Soon GRC, Lee Bee Wah even said that residents ask why their blocks don’t have CCTV cameras if they move into new blocks.
ATMs have taken a bit of a beating from angry patrons in recent times. This time it was an ATM in Dongguan that bit the dust as a woman was seen completely disabling the machine in order to retrieve her card, which had been swallowed. The incident happened last week at a shopping mall in Shilong town, Dongguan prefecture-level city, and was captured by a surveillance video, according to NetEase. The video reportedly shows the women repeatedly trying, and failing, to withdraw cash. The machine then failed to return her card, thus sparking her assault on the unsuspecting victim.
I want to tell a story of how a person lost his entire HDB flat due to poor financial planning. No, it isn’t another property agent who rented his HDB illegally. The purpose of this blog article is to highlight the importance of financial planning but it is not meant to make fun of any persons. The story goes like this: Mr. Cheong (his real name) bought a HDB flat under joint-tenants with his mother in 1983. Mr. Cheong paid the downpayment, mortgages, conservancy charges, utilities bills and property tax. In 1986, Mr. Cheong was allocated a new HDB flat in Serangoon North Avenue.
I refer to the 18 Oct 2014 Straits Times report of Minister Lawrence Wong’s speech “Long-term policy issues must be studied objectively”. Wong claim 1: Lee Kuan Yew had tremendous courage in the face of great adversity Lee cried and cried at our independence and ended up convalescing at Changi chalet for six weeks. He also worked for the enemy during the Japanese Occupation. If those are examples of courage then crying, running away from problems and working for the enemy are the hallmarks of the courageous.
