A SINGAPOREAN WAS ONCE JAILED 1 YEAR FOR HAVING FAKE DEGREES

THEREALSINGAPORE 21 April 2015 - 11:02am

With the revelation that there is a worker in IDA with a fake degree, it is concerning that IDA seems to be disinterested in doing anything about it. Since then, netizens have also continued to dig up further examples of people who are apparently working here with fake qualifications. For those, like Former NMP Calvin Cheng, who believe that buying a degree is not actually that bad, you are wrong. 


THE PEAK RESIDENT: WE WERE NEIGHBOURLY EVEN WITHOUT AN RC CENTRE!

THEREALSINGAPORE 21 April 2015 - 10:30am

Neighbours at The Peak were able to form friendships very easily through social media and gatherings. Here are some neighbour initiated gatherings that aren't RC organised (no RC at first so we DIY and the Halloween trick or treat has become an annual costume party. Neighbours even do up their homes and open them up for visits.) There is a Chinese saying- a good neighbour is better than a relative living far away.


HOPE FOR ANOTHER PM LEE

THEREALSINGAPORE 21 April 2015 - 10:16am

There were all kinds of mischievous speculations and troublesome remarks that there will be a third PM Lee after Hsien Loong. And the choice is between Hong Yi and Sheng Wu as the top candidate for the post. The grooming could have started and the ground being prepared. 


SAD TO SEE MORE ELDERLY SELLING TISSUE AT COFFEE SHOPS

THEREALSINGAPORE 21 April 2015 - 9:56am

Some days ago, I saw an elderly woman in her 70s selling tissue paper at a coffee shop. She was limping as she went round the tables to sell her tissue paper. When she finally managed to earn enough money, she bought a packet of rice. It saddens me that such a sight is becoming increasingly prevalent in prosperous Singapore. On the one hand, I commend these elderly people on their grit and tenacity; they work so hard despite their decrepitude and the stigma of performing such jobs.


TEEN GIVEN DETENTION FOR ATTACKING FOREIGN WORKERS TO 'PRACTICE FIGHTING'

THEREALSINGAPORE 21 April 2015 - 9:42am

Daryl Lim Jun Liang, 19, was sentenced to 10 days detention and 1 year of reporting to the police as well as 150 hours of community service for beating up foreign workers. He was also given a curfew to stay indoors between 10pm to 6am and he is to be electronically tagged. Lim had gone around in the wee hours of the morning in September and October last year with 3 friends to pick fights with foreign workers who were smaller than them.


IT'S AN INTEGRITY ISSUE - PRESSURE IDA MANAGEMENT TO SACK NISHA

THEREALSINGAPORE 21 April 2015 - 9:22am

Dear TRS, Nisha's 'MBA' from Southern Pacific University (degree mill) was 'attained' between 2005-2006, which she proudly declared on LinkedIn. If Nisha listed the dubious MBA in the HR forms (legal documents) for the jobs she applied from 2006-2014, it is tantamount to misrepresentation under contract law, which is a CRIMINAL OFFENCE. Definition of Misrepresentation: "referring to a false statement of fact made by one party to another party".


'THE GOVERNMENT SERVES ALL'? PLEASE, WALK THE WALK

THEREALSINGAPORE 21 April 2015 - 9:02am

“Let’s put it this way, it’s a democracy … you decide what you want to choose, for better or worse. I will tell you that we will endeavour to do our best, whatever the outcome. All of you remain Singaporeans. You don’t vote for us but we are here to still continue to provide policies that cut across every division.” Tan Chuan-Jin, 20 Apr 2015 Let me state upfront that I am not convinced of the sincerity of the apparent volteface in PAP’s policy. 


SBS TRANSIT FINALLY CREATED A TWITTER ACCOUNT... IN 2015

THEREALSINGAPORE 21 April 2015 - 1:51am

Hi, Updated my site with the latest train faults and delays. Bigger news: SBS Transit finally created a Twitter account, circa March 2015 (everyone go support/follow!). In past rail incident response exercises in 2012 and 2013, LTA proclaimed that information was disseminated effectively via social media channels such as Twitter. 


WHAT IS THE KEY MESSAGE OF AMOS YEE'S VIDEO?

THEREALSINGAPORE 21 April 2015 - 1:06am

I am sure all of you know who is Amos Yee. The web is filled with comments about him and his video. I was one of the first few people to come across his video. At that time, I only managed to watch the first few seconds of it because I don't like the way it was delivered - Too strong, too one-sided, and I don't agree with all of the points.
