The answer is no, or not yet. Our Sampan is still looking good and still good to load in more and more passengers. It is like Noah loading the animals for a journey instructed by God. Fill them up! The captain is very confident that this Sampan would not sink even if it is loaded with 6.9m, and more when the need comes. Maybe by then another hull will be added to turn it into a catamaran, safe, stable and sound.

Mdm Selvi Narayanasamy, the mother of the late Dinesh Raman who died in prison, has reached a settlement agreement with the government. She is withdrawing all allegations of prison officer assault and abuse. In a joint statement, Mdm Selvi and the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) explained that Mdm Selvi is dropping all allegations. The statement explained that it is accepted that Dinesh's death was due to the negligence of Deputy Superintendent Lim Kwo Yin, who was found guilty of negligence and ordered to pay a fine of $10,000 in July of last year.
Dr Wong claims that since we have no natural resources, our growth has to depend entirely on manpower. But almost all First World nations have little or no natural resources, why is their growth so different from ours? If they can grow their economies with their existing people, why can’t we? Is it because the leadership of this country is incapable of leading the country’s growth through innovation and creativity that it must resort to importing large numbers of foreign labour instead?
The United Nations human rights office has criticised Brunei’s planned introduction of the death penalty for a raft of new offences, as part of a shift to harsh Islamic punishments in the oil-rich sultanate. “We are deeply concerned about the revised penal code in Brunei Darussalam, due to come into force later this month, which stipulates the death penalty for numerous offences,” said Rupert Colville, spokesman for the UN high commissioner for human rights.
You’ve probably heard about the brouhaha surrounding some Philippines Independence Day celebrations in Singapore that’s got netizens all riled up: on one hand, you have the “Singapore for Singaporeans” faction who’ve been accused by the media and the Prime Minister himself of being extreme xenophobes for suggesting that foreigners holding the celebrations on Singaporean soil is an act of “invasion”, for lack of a better way to phrase it; on the other side stands the xenophobes-have-no-place-in-Singapore faction of whom the PM, probably half the Cabinet, and other PAP supporters/eminent bloggers and journalists are (obviously) part of, calling Singaporeans voicing dissent over the event “a disgrace”.
Dear TRS I am writing this to voice my opinion of foreign expatriates as an average Singaporean. Being a daily commuter on public transport, it can be quite stressful enduring the long commuting hours, the after work stench in this torturous weather and the peak hours crowd. Sometimes, I seek solace in taking longer bus rides over trains as it is generally a more peaceful way to commute.
I refer to the 18 Apr 2014 Straits Times letter “a question of fairness” by Mr Jeffrey Law. Mr Law claims that xenophobia has reared its ugly head when Singaporeans condemn the public celebration of the Philippines’ Independence. It is Mr Law who is mistaken; there is nothing xenophobic about the protection of Singapore’s sovereignty which is the sacred right and duty of every Singaporean including Mr Law.
I asked the Finance Minister this question during the 14 April 2014 sitting of Parliament to find out if the Government had been using the full 50% of Net Investment Returns (NIR) to supplement the Budget, as is provided for in the Constitution. While it is widely assumed that 50% of the estimated long term annual returns from investing our Reserves is contributed to the Budget each year, the Constitution actually allows for “up to 50%”, which means it could be less than 50%.
Last week, I had revealed to Singaporeans the Complete Entrapment Plan that the PAP has devised to cut Singaporeans down. It is not accidental that the lives of Singaporeans are become harder and harsher. The PAP has planned for it all. Watch this video to find out how the whole PAP entrapment plan works and when the PAP started planning for all these to go against Singaporeans.
