REMISIERS' WOES IN SINGAPORE

THEREALSINGAPORE 3 April 2014 - 10:42am

I have a story/opinion I like to share with our fellow readers. Its about the unfair situation the Remisiers in singapore have to face ( not sure about other countrys). My friend is a Remisier for more than 10 years after being jobless for several years in his early twenties during the financial crisis where many singaporeans became insurance agents, housing agents and remisiers.

THEREALSINGAPORE 3 April 2014 - 10:40am

Another famous hawker stall is falling victim to high rentals and lack of manpower. Chinese Newspaper Shin Min Daily reported that the famous Teochew porridge stall on Joo Chiat Road is closing down from April 14th. The stall, Xu Jun Sheng Teochew Cuisine, has been around for about 76 years but the last round of rental increase saw it paying an additional $1.7k a month. When considering other costs such as utilities, the total cost just to operate were about $10k a month.

A suspected World War II bomb exploded in the Thai capital as scrap metal workers tried to cut it open with a blow torch, killing at least seven people and injuring 19, police said.

PINOY NEWS: WHY FOREIGN WORKERS GET LESS REST IN SINGAPORE

THEREALSINGAPORE 3 April 2014 - 10:15am

Tightening of immigration policies have led to manpower shortage that had foreigners working overtime and getting fewer rest days in Singapore. The complaint may sound like a familiar refrain among the workers. But employers – especially small and medium enterprises reliant on manual labor – are beginning to see problems of high manpower turnovers and the big cost of doing business in this city-state as a result.


NETIZENS SLAM MEDIACORP OVER DISTASTEFUL MUSLIM CHEATING HUSBAND PRANK

THEREALSINGAPORE 3 April 2014 - 10:13am

Netizens, especially those from the Malay Muslim community, have heavily criticised MediaCorp for a distasteful April fool's joke. A viral video of a Malay 'makcik' catching her cheating husband on the bus turned out to be a Mediacorp prank organised by the team behind 'The Noose'. The video depicted a Malay aunty 'catching' her husband on a public bus with his mistress. The video was uploaded around the 29th of march and shared quickly throughout social media:


DEAR TRS, PRC COUPLE ALLOW THEIR KID TO RUN AROUND NAKED AND PEE ON THE FLOOR

THEREALSINGAPORE 3 April 2014 - 9:54am

I saw a boy running around naked at Changi Food Centre during dinner time yesterday (Apr 1). The parents of the boy, who are Chinese nationals, also allowed the boy to pee openly on the floor. Who is going to clean up the mess for them?


SINGAPORE, NOT ONLY WORLD’S MOST MISERABLE PLACE BUT ALSO ONE WHICH IS DEVOID OF HUMANITY

THEREALSINGAPORE 3 April 2014 - 9:20am

I’d think the following excerpt from a recent BBC article is actually alarming. It goes to show what a complete control Lee Kuan Yew has over his people. No one dares to help anyone in Singapore, in my opinion, under the presumption that it is none of their business to help any people lest they offend the ruling elite who may be doing their dirty work.


FORMER TEACHER: WHY CCA HOURS ARE LONG AND CANNOT BE RESOLVED

THEREALSINGAPORE 3 April 2014 - 7:51am

There is something I would like to share to your readers about my experience when I was still working in MOE years ago, both in schools and in the headquarters. I wanted to share this after I read the local news today about Singapore students being the best in solving problems. It is comical, given that we have so many national problems plaguing us for years with no real solution in sight. In the education scene, most teachers lead a workaholic lifestyle and students spend way too much time in school. The problem has been acknowledged and recognized for years, but no real solution had been proposed or implemented. I would like to explain why this is so.


USE OF CPF FUNDS FOR PUBLIC HOUSING SIMILAR TO PAYING RENT TO GOVERNMENT

THEREALSINGAPORE 3 April 2014 - 7:45am

I hope that more Singaporeans will be enlightened after reading “The dirty CPF-HDB scheme to trick Singaporeans”. The CPF scheme is an epic failure and re-designed to create and support high housing prices. The PAP constantly tweaks the CPF policy to mask it public housing failure. Constituents living in opposition wards must demand that their MPs highlight the CPF issue in parliament. There are too many questions concerning the lack of transparency, an increasing amount in the Medisave Account disallowed for medical needs and health insurance, etc.
