Some cultures and traditional stays. Learn to respect others traditional. There's so much talk about racial harmony but people keep complaining. I remember about 20 years ago, during hungry ghost festival, when people start burning, neighbours will shut their window instead of complaining.

HOW MUCH CPF DO SINGAPOREANS HAVE? GOVERNMENT DOES NOT WANT US TO KNOW

THEREALSINGAPORE 29 July 2014 - 5:40pm

Last week, I attended the Forum on CPF and Retirement Adequacy, organised by the Institute of Policy Studies. I had posed some questions to the Manpower Minister Tan Chuan-Jin.

However, this only refers to (1) ‘active’ members’ who were able to meet the Minimum Sum (2) “in cash plus property”.

One reasons why Singapore has the world’s most corrosive work culture where unhappy workers feel the need regularly stay back after five – may have something to do with foolish leaders who work so inefficiently and who have absolutely no idea of what the goal in life should be that even their wife’s have to ask them to resign so that they return home to sleep. Stupid people will always do stupid things thinking that they are clever – this is the Tao of stupid people.


M'SIA OPPOSITION MP: TAXING SINGAPORE CARS ENTERING JOHOR IS A BIG MISTAKE

THEREALSINGAPORE 29 July 2014 - 4:55pm

A large number of Malaysian citizens who are working in Singapore commute daily between both nations using Singapore or Malaysia-registered vehicles. They are now the victims of two nations’ competing counter-policies which will burden them more financially.
