MINISTER SHANMUGAM: A HELPFUL STAFF AT TCC HELPED MY RELATIVES KEPT HER VALUABLES

THEREALSINGAPORE 4 May 2014 - 9:57am

She was in a hurry, and left the bag behind. A day later she realised that she didn’t have her bag. She couldn’t remember where she had left it. She went to Challenger and searched. Couldn’t find it, and the staff didn’t know anything about it. She went to the Funan Centre Lost and Found and couldn’t find her bag either. Then she went to TCC – she didn’t think she had left the bag there, but went to look anyway. And there was Nazri, smiling at her – he was the one who had served her earlier. Nazri told her that he had found the bag, kept it safe, and was wondering when she would come back to collect it !

PM Lee recently announced at the May Day Rally that the government would be doing more to encourage older workers to work beyond the age of 65. He had explained that the government would do more to help those over 65 to be re-employed but also said that older workers should expect to receive a pay cut. Some have speculated that this could mean a raising of the retirement age, prompting criticism of the announcement.

MORE TOLERANCE NEEDED FOR OUR STRAY ANIMALS

THEREALSINGAPORE 4 May 2014 - 8:46am

I refer to the online forum letter (“Stray dogs and rats around MRT station“; Friday, 28 March). I disagree with the writer, Mr Tang Lian Tong about the stray dogs behind Bukit Batok MRT station that are posing potential nuisance and health threats to the public. First of all, these stray dogs are most likely being fed by kind-hearted caregivers who are caring for these strays. I am appalled that the writer chose to classify dogs and rats as potential threats which I feel is a misconception.


10 REASONS AND 10 REBUTTALS ON HIGH MINISTERIAL SALARIES

THEREALSINGAPORE 4 May 2014 - 8:35am

Below are the 10 reasons put up by Roy Ngerng on the govt’s justifications for high ministerial salaries that Roy called 10 logical fallacies. I will attempt to rebut what Roy wrote in defence of the high salaries and hope my explanations are logical. And I think the IB will not attack me for writing this piece. I will want to clarify here that they are my versions and not PAP’s versions and I have not been commissioned to reply on their behalf. I just hope that my reasonings would make good sense.

PM LEE SHOULD GIVE GOVT JOBS TO UNEMPLOYED SINGAPOREANS TO BUY PAP VOTES

THEREALSINGAPORE 3 May 2014 - 10:01pm

Recently, one of my civil service friend asked me, "Why do you hate PAP so much until you try to expose their dirty secrets on TRS? Why can't you spend more time looking for a govt job so that you focus more on your job?" Many of my civil service friends usually vote for PAP because of a) fear of PAP if they are found out through their ballot paper b) their rice bowl is almost certain so vote for PAP to preserve their status quo
