TIME TO NATIONALIZE SMRT

THEREALSINGAPORE 20 November 2013 - 7:08pm

They have the market monopoly, they have benefited from a $1.1 billion government handout and they are already raking in hundreds of millions of profits. But that is not stopping the greedy corporation from wanting a fare raise. So what justified the fare raise? Have SMRT provided better services like how the PAP will only encourage a salary raise for workers provided productivity increase? Nope, the services have worsen. There are more train breakdowns than ever before and the overcrowding problem has worsen. The photo below was taken yesterday 6pm at City Hall station.

FROM ADVICE ON DENGUE, MINISTER GRACE FU HAS SHIFTED TO PUBLIC TOILETS

THEREALSINGAPORE 20 November 2013 - 6:14pm

I refer to Asiaone article “soon, easier to use and cleaner loos” dated 20 Nov. The article boldly claims that “dirty toilets may soon be a thing of the past”. Judging from past efforts of government agencies, it appears dirty toilets will be here to stay. New government regulations, as usual, addresses the problem of unhygienic toilets from a hardware point of view. This is a typical government approach of throwing money and hoping for a solution


PRC SHOW OFF HOW EASILY SMRT HIRE HIM WITHOUT EVEN TESTING HIS DRIVING SKILLS

THEREALSINGAPORE 20 November 2013 - 6:03pm

This time with a further dimension of concern, coming from a potential driver who flagrantly boasts how easy it is to become an SMRT Bus Driver. In his post, the potential driver congratulates his fellow hired friends who will be ‘bravely venturing’ to Singapore together. He shamelessly describes how his driving skills went untested and were spoon-fed answers. He is surprised but exhilarated to become hired for work by SMRT.


DEAR THE REAL SINGAPORE, ITE STUDENTS SELLING SEX ON FACEBOOK

THEREALSINGAPORE 20 November 2013 - 5:39pm

Upon clicking on the Facebook profile of guys reviewing their "special services", some of these men are actually married. I honestly think married men should not be allowed to visit prositute. Isn't it the same as committing adultery? If Ashley Madison is being banned by the Singapore government for promoting adultery, i honestly think Facebook should also be banned as I see many of such profiles selling sex services through Facebook.

INDONESIAN BOY WHO SHOCKED WORLD WITH 40-A-DAY CIGARETTE HABIT NOW ADDICTED TO JUNK FOOD

THEREALSINGAPORE 20 November 2013 - 4:12pm

The two-year-old Indonesian boy who shocked the world with his 40-a-day cigarette habit has replaced nicotine with a new addiction… junk food. Ardi Rizal made international headlines as a toddler when he was spotted chain-smoking while riding a tricycle in his remote Sumatran village. The worldwide outrage over the photographs led Indonesia’s government to organise a special rehabilitation treatment for Ardi and launch a nationwide campaign to tackle the problem of child smokers.


THE 2013 MASTER PLAN IS NONSENSE!

THEREALSINGAPORE 20 November 2013 - 4:02pm

The biggest change that this master plan intends to bring about is the introduction of homes in the central area. At present, the current properties that are in the central region are not particularly accessible to average Singaporean families. These are either too expensive ($2 million for a loft) or too cramped ($900,000 for a 2-bedroom shoebox). As per other developments, it looks like such homes will benefit a few local yuppies but mainly will go to being occupied by highly paid expats.
