SINGAPORE LUXURY HOME PRICES PLUNGE AS COOLING MEASURES START TO BITE

THEREALSINGAPORE 29 August 2014 - 12:46pm

There's an eerie silence at night in Sentosa Cove, the man-made island resort billed as Singapore's answer to Monte Carlo and the only place in the country where foreigners can buy landed property. Dozens of houses - complete with their own private yacht berths and multiple swimming pools - sit empty while few lights are on in the apartment blocks overlooking the marina, a few kilometres away from Sentosa's giant casino.

MORE EVIDENCE PM IS CLUELESS ABOUT ORDINARY LIFE IN S’PORE

THEREALSINGAPORE 29 August 2014 - 10:03am

It’s not juz eating cockles with mee siam which incidentally is at least an attempt in fusion food: Malay with Chinese. Recently, PM was criticised by the usual anti-PAP cyber warriors, for comments he made at a dialogue session moderated by DBS CEO Piyush Gupta; comments on the “divisive nature of the internet”. Actually I think, their comments show how self-centred are the critics.


CPF WILL BE A BIG ISSUE AT NEXT GE SO OPPOSITION PARTIES MUST MAKE THEIR STAND CLEAR

THEREALSINGAPORE 29 August 2014 - 9:56am

CPF must be an election issue. If a party ignores it, it is a no future political party. If CPF is an important issue, the Mass Immigration which is the cause of CPF problem cannot be ignored. If a party ignore Mass Immigration and just talk about CPF, the party will end up talking contents similar to the NDR: NO REAL SOLUTION ON ROOT CAUSE. Drawing 20%, selling home of elders, cannot raise the figures in CPF. 


THEIR GODS MUST BE CRAZY

THEREALSINGAPORE 29 August 2014 - 9:26am

News like this is enough to turn any one into an atheist. First we have this wife of a mega church pastor cavorting semi-clad in a music video to win more converts, and giving geishas in general a black eye in the process. For the record, real geishas do not provide pleasures of the flesh. They are highly skilled professionals, traditional female entertainers dedicated to performing various Japanese arts such as classical shamisen music, dance and games, appreciated for their subtlety, strength, and grace. 


WHAT THOSE STRANGE THINGS YOU SEE FLOATING IN YOUR EYE?

THEREALSINGAPORE 29 August 2014 - 8:54am

Have you ever noticed a strange little worm-like speck drifting aimlessly about in your field of vision? These annoying little squiggly lines, or “cobwebs,” are called floaters and are experienced by around 70% of people. So what are they? Floaters are actually shadows cast by objects suspended in the clear, gel-like substance that makes up the majority of the eye’s interior. This


IN PRAISE OF THE SINGAPORE GOVERNMENT

THEREALSINGAPORE 29 August 2014 - 8:51am

Like it or not, love it or hate it, the Singapore Govt is about the most creative and innovative institution in the whole wide world when creation of value is concerned. Just look at the COE, it is really a piece of worthless paper, but the Govt can sell it to the motorists for $70k to $90k, just for the right to buy a car. The actual market value of a car could be less than half of the COE. The value created is unimaginable.


PAP SUPPORTER MINDSET REALLY MAKES ME THINK TWICE ABOUT VOTING FOR THE PAP

THEREALSINGAPORE 29 August 2014 - 5:54am

Dear The Real Singapore, Few would be happy to be caught in a train delay, but my experience on Wednesday morning had set me thinking about Singapore’s future. A mass of people of different nationalities waiting for the train in an organised manner yet with a clear sense of underlying disappointment was perhaps reflective of Singaporean society itself.
