PETITION: PUNISH THE LIEUTENANT COLONEL FOR THE ABUSE. DROP THE CHARGES OF THE NSF

THEREALSINGAPORE 27 February 2014 - 4:19pm

Mindef lied to an animal rescuer to disclose the identity of one of the NSmen who took the video of the dog being tied up by saying it's for investigation purposes and no charges will be filed. Instead what they did after knowing the identity was to charge the NSman for videoing it and seeking help for the abused dog, and also charged a senior officer for letting the NSman out of camp to contact the animal welfare group (Animal Lovers League), while the Lieutenant Colonel who was the abuser was let off scot-free with both AVA (Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority of Singapore) and MINDEF (ministry of defence) insisting the statements of the 9 NSmen to be untrue and unfounded. Even though they were witnesses to the abuse and was threatened to be charged if they were to speak a word of the incident of it to anyone.


8 REASONS WHY SMALL BOOBS MAKE THE WORLD GO ROUND

THEREALSINGAPORE 27 February 2014 - 3:34pm

Not that I think we should waste our presh time comparing bodies, or try to decide whose bag of water and bones is most valuable based on arbitrary, trend-driven specifications. Like, fuck that racket. I am, however, wholeheartedly in favor of loving our bodies, unapologetically. Because – although it doesn’t happen often enough – it is entirely possible to love your body without shaming someone else’s. So let’s all join hands and collectively shit on the idea that celebrating ourselves constitutes an implicit criticism of others.

DEAR #SINGTEL, WTF ARE YOU THINKING? WHAT IS #IDA DOING ? CHARGING FOR #WHATSAPP #USAGE?

THEREALSINGAPORE 27 February 2014 - 2:32pm

1. How much DATA can your Whatsapp take? For a heavy user like me, the most I did was 500MB (still have some left over) 2. To be fair, if this was catered to those people whom are using their Smart Phones without Data plans, then Kudos to Singtel, however I would recommend Singtel to rephrase their statement properly and also market this clearer to the right target audience – If you need help marketing, TheGeekyBeng’s daytime business would be perfect to help you drive your message across.


DOES IT MAKE SENSE TO INVITE FOREIGNERS TO INVEST IN OUR LAND?

THEREALSINGAPORE 27 February 2014 - 2:08pm

Does it make sense for us to invite foreigners to invest in our homes and drive up the prices of our homes, while they do not live here nor have a stake in our land. As the PAP allow them to drive up prices here and turn Singapore into their investment arena, who is left to pick up the flak, except for the Singaporeans who have to live here, who have to pay ever-increasing prices? 


GOVT'S PACKAGE TO "PIONEER GENERATION" DOES NOT HELP MUCH

THEREALSINGAPORE 27 February 2014 - 1:57pm

Dear TRS, I would like to expose some practical truths behind the government’s “pioneer generation” package. Although I am not a volunteer, I do spend occasional weekends donating and helping out with a local organisation called “A Packet of Rice”. It is not really a charity per se, but more of a volunteer group run by volunteers to collect food items from sponsors then distribute them to the needy elderly in one and two room flats.


STUPID #14: SINGAPORE ARMY, SAF, MINDEF, AND THE DOG ABUSER LTC MILITARY PERSONNEL INVOLVED

THEREALSINGAPORE 27 February 2014 - 1:45pm

After a military personnel in an army camp abused a dog, instead of apologising, the Singapore army (SAF), proceeded to punish the brave whistle-blower for having told others about the dog abuse. The whistle-blower was a young man who had been forcefully conscripted into National Service (NS) in Singapore. The father of the national servicemen soon complained about his son's predicament.


TAXI DRIVER MURDERER SHOULD HANG

THEREALSINGAPORE 27 February 2014 - 1:36pm

Chinese national Wang Wenfeng was convicted of murder of taxi driver Yuen Swee Hong in the High Court in 2011 and sentenced to death. However a review was done in regards to capital punishment and all hangings (the method of execution here) were put on hold. Finally the changes in Law were made effective January 2013, and all those facing capital punishment had their sentences remitted back to the High Court, to see whether they qualified to be sentenced under the new regime.


DEFINE RUN AWAY

THEREALSINGAPORE 27 February 2014 - 1:21pm

When it comes to communication with Singaporeans, Singlish is often blamed for a lot of misunderstanding. It's not the same problem other countries face. For instance, George Bernard Shaw is attributed to have said, "England and America are two countries divided by a common language." Here, even Singaporeans sometimes fail to understand what other Singaporeans are saying. When bus drivers stop work, it's an industrial action, not a strike. When roads are immersed under water, it's due to ponding, not a flood.
