I replied "No. I am neither bisexual nor I've ever had sex with males. By saying I am a prostitute, I meant that I am a taxi driver. A taxi driver in Singapore is nothing but a prostitute. Think of it. We have this blood-sucking government agency called LTA in our back, day in and day out, busy pulling cab drivers pants down and raping us. Then we have the blood thirsty taxi operators that don’t bother fixing the cabs properly like changing worn-out tyres and removing ABS air-bags and as a result cab drivers end up having accidents and dying. Then you have the traffic cops giving you questionable tickets for picking or dropping in a bus lanes.
Chan Chun Sing has highlighted the need for the PAP to constantly fight for and defend the common spaces for discussion. He justified that if the PAP does not do its part to control the space where people engage in discussion, others will dominate the spaces and make them ‘irrelevant’. It appears that Chan Chun Sing was referring to cyber space and social media as that is where a majority of discussion takes place these days however, it is unknown what exactly he meant by ‘irrelevant’. It certainly sounds like he believes discussions not well controlled by the government are irrelevant.

For decades now, SIM has been offering satellite degrees. Many recruiters don't see them as equals to the local full time degrees or their full time ones overseas. Should we just come clean with this so grads know what they are getting into before enrolling in SIM? Maybe we need your guidance here, but is it true that there is a need for cut off point? Otherwise everyone will be a desired school but graduate without job?
It is therefore imperative that the government review its policy on NS. Why does it not do so? Why does it continue to spend a disproportionate 20 per cent of its budget on defence? First, we need to understand the organisational structure of an army. It is made up of individual soldiers, from a platoon at the basic level and a Division at the highest. A division can consist of between 10,000 and 15,000 men.

Recently, I took a new route to exit Tampines to PIE and without much looking around, I notice that there is long queue of people in front of Melville Park @ Tampines/Simei. They appeared to be office workers, the PMETs. With a quick look I can easily notice that the number of Indian nationals in the queue is a lot more than others. They queued to board the same bus.
Hong Kong actor Andy Lau has expressed that he wants to work with Singapore film-makers. He explained that there had been talks in the past about Singaporean filmmakers collaborating with his company but the talks never really came to anything. One of the reasons for this, he believes, is that he was not able to leave Hong Kong all the time to organise proper collaborations.
