THEREALSINGAPORE 28 February 2014 - 5:16pm

Domestic violence... So many women are victims of domestic tyrants, but they just scare and keep quiet. I was one of them... I was so in love with amazing Singapore and my husband. And as the most of women i kept hope that one day he will change. But this day never come. First punch i got from him when i was pregnant 9 month. After giving birth things become even worse. This man was humiliating and punching me in front of his mother and father... And when i was carrying baby, it did not stop him! He push, he slap, he punch... He never care that baby is scared and crying! He like to play role of good muslim man and role of nice family man on public. Its like two different men.


2014 BUDGET: RESPONSE BY THE NATIONAL SOLIDARITY PARTY (NSP)

THEREALSINGAPORE 28 February 2014 - 4:26pm

TOWARDS A MORE GRACIOUS SOCIETY KEY COMMENTS AND PROPOSALS Since the year 2002, NSP has made repeated calls on the Government to do more for our elderly. Budget 2014 only reinforces the transactional value in our society. We have missed the opportunity to lay the foundation for a more gracious one. PGP is premised on rewarding a generation of people who had sacrificed much towards the economic success of Singapore.


SINGTEL FIASCO: YOU PAY OR I BLOCK

THEREALSINGAPORE 28 February 2014 - 4:12pm

Singtel will not be charging their customers for the use of the free applications like Whatsapp, they will bill these companies instead. Which logically also mean these free applications will start charging the end-users. It is simple: whoever Singtel is going to charge, the money has to come from some where. The owners of these free applications are already doing the public a charity by making their services free, they are not going to incur losses just because some cheapskate telecom company in Singapore wants to make "sustainable" profit.

WHY I WOULD BE UNSUPPORTING THE WORKER'S PARTY

THEREALSINGAPORE 28 February 2014 - 3:22pm

Those readers who have been following my blog since the beginning would know that I supported them during the last General Election. I went to their rally at Bedok Stadium, bought their merchandise, and of course voted for them. That night, during the announcement of the results, I was there at Hougang stadium to show my support. It was an amazing experience; there was a feeling of patriotism that I never felt before, and most present would swear that we were all unified as Singaporeans then, something that not even the National Day Parade could invoke in me.


MONEY MATTERS

THEREALSINGAPORE 28 February 2014 - 3:15pm

Recently, Lawrence Wong, Chan Chun Sing and Grace Fu were serendipitiously caught on camera, nodding off in parliament as the budget was presented. No wonder, the glaring omission in the grand show and tell was the traditional gee-whiz powerpoint slide-fest favoured by the Old Man. And for good reason too, it would showcase the biggest slice of the pie once again goes to.... (drum roll).... Defence, to the tune of $12.6 billion or 22.2% of the total expenditure for FY2014.
