After the big hoo-ha over the dismal SMRT bus 190 service where passengers had to bypass 14 buses before they could finally hop on, LTA has finally come out to soothe the complaints of disgruntled passengers. LTA states that 6 more mid service buses would be added to the route during peak periods and more SMRT staff would be on hand at the affected bus stops to facilitate crowd control. It further added that an alternative bus service would be unveiled soon and it is expected to take some of the passenger load off the bus 190 service.

On Monday, the Defense Minister, Ng Eng Hen announced in Parliament that national swimmer Joseph Isaac Schooling's request (via his parents) to defer National Service (or conscription) had been acceded to, following the support of the Ministry of Youth and Sports. This is indeed welcome news and although I am principally against conscription, I think that debate is for another occasion. Now is the time to get behind Joe in his quest to achieve his dreams and to bring glory to Singapore.
As part of the ongoing efforts of the committee to strengthen national service (CSNS), they are currently looking into the possibility of allowing National Servicemen to pick their vocations. Minister Ng Eng Hen announced this a few days after he returned from his study trip to Europe where both Finland and Switzerland offer this choice to their servicemen. Currently, servicemen only have a limited ‘choice’ in that they can register their preference to attend command school or not after BMT.
It states that “During the NDR, Mr Lee had said that Singapore will continue to have top schools, but these schools must make sure students from low-income backgrounds “are not put off from applying to enter for fear that they cannot afford it”. “We have the schemes; we should enhance them substantially so that anybody who qualifies and wants to attend these top secondary schools can confidently do so,” he said.
Mrs Lina Chiam believes government should go one step further to instate levies on owners of unused property. Land is scarce in Singapore – residential property should be bought for “use”, rather than purely for investment and speculation. Madam Speaker, Clause 3A of this Bill removes the refund of property tax for unoccupied residential and non-residential properties with effect from 1st January 2014. This is consistent with the national agenda to impose tax on the top-most earners.
Tin Pei Ling is spending her time hunting down a resident who throws tampons out her window. This is the second case of an MP going to ‘track down’ high-rise littering offenders with Baey Yam Keng searching for a diaper throwing resident just last week. According to a report in Lianhe Wanbao, Tin Pei Ling was informed of the littering occurring at Blk 31 on MacPherson Road last Friday.
"Notwithstanding that many are giving Randstad the benefits of the doubt in the choice of words spelt out in the advertisement for a Merchandiser-Planner position; “This position is open to candidates who are not Singaporean Citizens or PR”. Clearly, there is a dark and implicit slant to it. When a Singaporean reads as such it would deter him from applying for the position. Such is the play of words and I am sure, Randstad, being a global recruitment agency would have known better. No freaking excuse!!!
Recently, there was a lot of public anger over the euthanasia of a healthy 7 month old puppy named Tammy. Tammy was adopted by a lady called Alison McElwee from a rehomer and told that she should notify the rehomer if they had any trouble with the dog and they could return him. Despite this, Tammy was put down without telling the rehomer and the story was quickly spread online.
