Dear TRS, Through the past 16 years, I only had a 6-year Filipino maid and a 2-year Indonesian maid who finished their contract. Both went home and didn't come back without informing me. Since the Indonesian maid left in May 2013, I experienced maids who just simply come and requested for transfer after a short stint. Worst still, very bad attitude.

Lawrence, Your letter to the HPB is "shocking and deeply upsetting". It was with a mixture of deep sadness and disgust that I read its contents. As a person who is (rather inexplicably, as it turns out) respected by a group of Singaporeans, it is somewhat strange that you would pen a letter so filled with blatant untruths, ignorance and hate. Your response to the issues raised is filled with irrationalities and poorly formed arguments. In this letter, I will dissect your points and explain why this is so to you.

“Big lessons from a little Swiss Alpine resort” by Warren Fernandez, ST editor, reflects the bubble he lives in. link Warren says that in 1984, ”government leaders set their sights only on reaching the levels the Swiss enjoyed at that time, and to do so by 1999.

Tan Cheng Bock caused quite a stir when he posted on facebook this morning that he was 'uninvited' from the annual Chinese New Year Garden Party due to a "policy change". He explained that he had been invited to the event and never failed to attend it since 1980 and he liked the event as he always received warm greetings and was able to catch up with many other Grassroots members. Dr Tan said he would miss meeting his friends at the event.
