In year’s National Day Rally, the Prime Minister touched on a variety of topics close to the hearts of Singaporeans. He highlighted matters like the planned restructuring of the Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE) grades classification system, changes to remove ‘discrimination’ from the MediShield Plan (which is long overdue, in our humble opinion) and other more prosaic matters like a new airport terminal (which despite the best efforts of mainstream media to hype up, no one really cares about).
What If An ordinary Singaporean of normal status or ordianry background like example Mdm Vellama Marie Muthu (Cleaner, Singaporean Hero for Standing Up For constitutional rights) Stood Against the Mighty PM Lee Hsien Loong Today in AMK Election?

Practice what you preach. Firstly, Pastor Larence Khong’s Faith Community Baptist Church took what it thought was the high road and sacked its then married, now divorced female staff for having an affair with another church staff, another divorcee. The sacking was illegal as MOM regulations said that the female staff was pregnant when she was sacked. Employers cannot give pregnant female staff the boot according to Section 81 of the Employment Act.
If you have bought a private property before, you are likely to have experience countless phone calls and SMS blasts from people asking about your property and your intentions on what you want to do with it. Have you ever wondered how the heck they got your number? Here's the scoop... I bought a condo unit that recently obtained its TOP. A few months prior to TOP and right until now, I have received numerous cold calls during the day and night from estate salespersons or their assistants on whether I would like to sell or rent my unit out.
I thought Singapore is an anti-communist country. Can we wear this in public? I spotted this guy and his group of friends from China wearing this in public. They were speaking very loudly in mandarin and singing the China National anthem ignoring all the stares he got from other people nearby. When I told him and his friends to keep quiet they got very aggressive and said that Singaporeans are weak and then he taunt me to hit him.
The madness of this Medishield Life has gone into everyone without any firm ideas being crystallised. At most the Medishield Life Scheme is just a red hot balloon floated in the air, an idea that has been thrown out in a rally but with no meat or bones in it. It has however, got many people thinking, excited, some scared to death and many people in delusion. Some even feel that their old age health problems are solved and there is no need to worry anymore. And there are those who are going to profit from it handsomely and smilingly quietly to themselves for the good fortune.
When I took a cab from Taman something Melodies in JB, I allowed the cabby to quote me a price to take me to JB Sentral. The Malay man said, "10 Ringit," and I hopped on. After some silence in the cab I finally broke the silence and asked, "Abang, why sometimes I take cab $6, sometimes $7 sometimes $10?" My driver was visibly slightly taken aback by my sudden question, which seemed like challenging his professionalism. So he replied, "Ah.... I asked you if $10 is ok or not only. You can say no if you find it too high." He seemed disturbed and showed it.
