DEAR TRS, THIS CHINESE POSTED RACIST AND INSENSITIVE REMARKS ABOUT MUSLIMS

THEREALSINGAPORE 21 July 2014 - 10:54am

Dear The Real Singapore, I saw this Facebook posting made by this Chinese Singaporean. His name is Franklin Wong and I believe he is a PAP grassroots member because there is a photo of him receiving some award from PAP Minister Liu Tuck Yew. His post has been shared over 1000+ times on Facebook and I find it very insulting to us muslim community especially during the month of fasting for us.


WHEN THE GOVT INCREASED SUBSIDIES, CHILDCARE CENTERS JUST INCREASED THEIR FEES!

THEREALSINGAPORE 21 July 2014 - 10:40am

Dear TRS, I sent this email to the Ministry of Social and Family Development to alert them to a problem with their subsidy structure but I also wanted to share it with you so that other families might also write in to MSF so that they know it's really a big problem: To MSF, I would like to highlight & share my experience with childcare centre for kids. I understand that the ministry cannot control fees of private establishments but shouldn't there be some kind of restrictions & controls over their increase of fees. 


UK PM TELLS PUTIN SHOOTING DOWN OF MH17 WAS 'UNACCEPTABLE'

THEREALSINGAPORE 21 July 2014 - 10:27am

David Cameron expressed anger about the shooting down of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 in a telephone conversation with Vladimir Putin on Sunday as EU leaders started preparing fresh sanctions against Moscow for its alleged role in the attack. Ten Britons died when flight MH17 was shot down with a missile on Thursday and sources indicated that Cameron was furious that it took the Russian president three days to respond to his request for a telephone conversation. 


ANTI-RUSSIA SENTIMENT RUNNING DEEP IN MALAYSIA

THEREALSINGAPORE 21 July 2014 - 10:17am

Many Malaysians are urging their government and world leaders to take a tough stance against Russia after pro-Russia rebels allegedly shot down a Malaysia Airlines jet, with some calling for economic sanctions and a boycott of Russian goods. While the rebels and Ukraine blame each other for Thursday's downing of Flight 17 over eastern Ukraine, near the Russian border, Russia's government is being accused of not doing enough to ensure that authorities have proper access to the crash site.


MAGNITUDE 6.2 EARTHQUAKE HITS OFF JAPAN'S NORTHEAST COAST

THEREALSINGAPORE 21 July 2014 - 10:10am

A 6.2-magnitude earthquake struck off Japan's northeast coast early Monday morning, the US Geological Survey said. The agency said the quake struck at 02:32am (1732 GMT Sunday) in the Pacific Ocean at a depth of 70 kilometres (44 miles) north east of Japan's Hokkaido island, close to the disputed Russian-administered Kuril Islands. There were no immediate reports of damage. USGS had earlier given the quake a slightly higher 6.6 magnitude and a shallower 60 kilometre depth reading. 


PROTECT THE FAMILY BY STRENGTHENING BONDS

THEREALSINGAPORE 21 July 2014 - 9:14am

IN THE debate over the removal of controversial children's books from the National Library Board's catalogue, both sides have defended their definition of family. Whether or not you agree with the ideal family proposed by the conservative majority, the banning of the books will have little effect on family life.


WHERE HAS ‘PRUDENT HEALTHCARE SPENDING’ GOTTEN US?

THEREALSINGAPORE 21 July 2014 - 6:38am

This goes out to those people who think that the Singapore government by not seriously subsidizing healthcare costs, is being prudent. If the above thread was never posted, I might not have replied because I think the Singapore government has passed just barely in this area but nevertheless passed. But if anyone thinks that the Singapore government has done a good job here, they need a loud wake-up call to reality. 


CELEBRATE SINGAPORE’S NATIONAL DAY BY UNDERSTANDING ITS HISTORY

THEREALSINGAPORE 21 July 2014 - 6:33am

I refer to the 13 May 2014 Straits letter “Celebrate Singapore’s birthday by learning its history” by Ms Lim Lih Mei. Ms Lim feels that a truly meaningful way of celebrating Singapore’s birthday is to learn Singapore’s history through events or activities that explain the historical significance of places like Bukit Chandu, Old Ford Factory, Fort Canning Park, Kent Ridge Park and Labrador Park so that Singaporeans understand our achievements did not come easy or happened overnight and that citizens shoulder a heavy responsibility to make our country an even better place.


WE DO HAVE BRAINLESS & THICK-SKINNED MINISTERS!

THEREALSINGAPORE 21 July 2014 - 6:27am

If you are not feeling shameful for being a Singaporean, then you ought to feel shameful for having a PAP Government! Because our ministers are not only brainless, they have insensitive skin on their face! We do not know the real reasons behind Singapore Government’s recent move to raise fees on foreign vehicles entering Singapore from Malaysia.
