Naughty Purple Light...

Purple Light ah purple light...indeed you have made a lot of people angry and sad over the passed 1-2 weeks..first of all it cause an outrage, especially fighting fit Singaporean male who had when through 30mths of National Service for the slightly older folks and 22-24mths for the slightly younger folks...Purple Light a song commonly sang during route march with lyrics which speaks of the bits and pieces of experience that any servicemen go through...many like the song as it is something that they can relate to...was BANNED by MinDef...reason behind it...? AWARE complained about the lyrics..well i do want to give credit to AWARE for bringing the matters to MinDef for the lyrics as it is unbecoming of a soldier to go around raping people.

SAF 8 Core Value
Loyalty to Country
Leadership
Discipline
Professionalism
Fighting Spirit
Ethnics
Care for Soldier
Safety

As you can see above the core values of SAF...Soldier should be discipline in all aspect of life.,,go around raping people is committing a crime thus where is the discipline..? But where as many reports goes out instead of saying the lyrics was banned...it indicated the whole song was banned..thus a barrage of unkind comments was directed to AWARE...

Well when many of these website that carries the story wasnt clear in the indication of lyrics that was banned especially when some carries the title...MINDEF BANNED NSFS FROM SINGING "PURPLE LIGHT" BECAUSE THE LYRICS ARE DEGRADING TOWARDS WOMEN...Many a times many people read only the headlines, titles and really missed out the content and thus caused a little misunderstanding thus AWARE getting lots of flak..

AWARE RESPONSE

Im happy that AWARE made a response to clarify the misunderstanding..but after reading it...something caught my attention..you guys or rather ladies are doing tai chi...First of all..you ladies doesnt feel bad for causing the uproar and then point finger at the negative comments given to you people...then pointed out that you have told the media that only specific lyrics was banned and then to  MEN who has completed NS pointed out to you about the lyrics..so AWARE is not at fault in this case. Well i believe you people may not be at fault but remember you are on a going into a PR deep shit...instead with that letter that defend yourselves i see excuses and reason to try to wipe your ass but more shit will just add on..first the letter is full of arrogance..it would have been better if you start the letter with..a more apologetic tone then point out the different things...in doing so you will definitely win many people who condemn you over to your side..but what you did..? Go out with your gun blazing..shooting at every single person to tell them it wasnt your fault it is the media, the NSmen fault and such..piece of advice...go get a better PR person to draft better letters that will help the organization and not some person that draft a letter that do more harm then good to the organization..and someone who can control her(i assume you dont hire guys) emotion better..

Note: Im neither with AWARE nor am I supporting AWARE..Just stating the facts

The real reason why local girls dont want to go for local guys..?

This article is writen in response to Gilbert Goh blog incorrigible post on ... click here to read his...

Dear Gilbert Goh...I was reading your blog post...basically it wasted 10mins of my time to read and understand the post...well your intention was not in the what you have mention in the title why local girls dont go for local guys but it is a post aiming at condemning foreigners working in Singapore or the so called FT..correct me if im wrong..by the way...during is spelled as D-U-R-I-N-G and not D-U-R-I-B-G...well let me introduce something interesting as spelling check..where it can help even F9 english student like yours truly....ME to spell well...

Next, I read 3 times to kind of understand what you want tried to bring across better structure on your sentencing ok..anyway your content on your male local guys unable into a relationship..even thot they tried looking...looking at what? Porn? Be specific in what you trying to bring across..ok enough of trying to be an English police here...now more towards your comments...your friend unable to get into relationship...you put the blame on work...but is it the real problem? You mention that they are working on dead end jobs like taxi driver or selling insurance...or some daily rated job...so have they tried upgrading their skills..? And with the foreign influx how does it affect the wages..? Enlighten me and yes I do agree that with more foreigner talent it does make the job a bit more competitive but with a little obstacles you start to complain you start to whine about it..you basically just sit down on the spot and said it is all their fault they hire more FT then deprive me of promotion and yada yada...and act like a spoilt brat..now..here is point number 1 why Singaporean girls dont go for Singaporean guys..immature..got problems blame others...what about themselves?

Now point number 2...Singapore a money country? Wait money where I dont see them...oooo...wait wait let me put 5 dollars on the floor n stand on it...done..ok..now im in money country...yeah..ooo wait are you trying to say materialistic?  Gosh gosh...im so sorry...let me keep my 5 dollars first..done..well..you are saying that local girls are materialistic but arent the men too? Let me ask you...ifyou can afford would you go for iphone or 7-11 phone? Cherry QQ or BMW 6 series? G2000 shirt or some pasar malam shirt? Guess you will choose iphone..BMW and G2000...am I right? So dont call be a pot calling the kettle black....

Next you mention that we dont earn enough without proper education...well i agree to a certain extent that our education system may not be fantastic but let me enlighten you that i have tonnes of friends who go through local education and they are high flying in their career....was it necessary to go to university..? Anyway that is not the point you claimed that 23% of primary school cohort go to university...wait which year and which cohort..where you get the stats from..? And let me educate you a little tertiary education include polytechnic which we had 5..and even ITE and on top of that we have many private education like kaplan, mdis and many more..providing university education...so come on before you say we arent given opportunity to study...

I have a friend who go to a local neighbourhood primary school to local neighbourhood secondary school...local institution (3years to A Level)....not Junior Collage...never go to University...yet he is earning more then most undergrads who had gone to overseas university...and yes...he is selling insurance that you kind of condemned...by the way he is getting married at the end of the year to a LOCAL GIRL...so..how did he do it..? Hard-working and positive mind set..and it just sum up to 1 word....ATTITUDE...if you have a good attitude..you can achieve a lot but if you choose to whine like a spoilt brat so be it...Overseas education maybe more well balanced then ours but is grass really greener on the other side? 

You claim that all ang moh speak perfect English..and they can hold their conversation...hey dude that is stereotyping....let me educate you a little....i can speak to anyone...any moment...and speak about anything under the sun..why..? Read more...be aware of situation around you...gain more general knowledge on things...sports, information technology, showbiz, politics...if you realised most Singaporean guys nowadays only talk about....NS, Soccer, girls...and let see...that about it...thus unable to hold solid conversation...they have to start to recognize these problems...n being a gentleman....it is something we need to learn...it starts from the family...

So..u felt intimidated when a women come to pick you up in a car while on a date...hmm...are you a MCP..? Wait do you understand that...? Let me break it up for you...means you are a Male Chauvinist Pig. Do i feel any lesser then the women who are better educated then me..? No..! By the way im armed with only a diploma..not degree..so how do i hold myself among them...? It is call confidence...you are your greatest discourager..you tell yourself...you can do it and you will do it..the seed of fear...so what does fear means..? Fear means false evidence appearing really..so why do you de-value yourself just because you are not highly educated..? Not from an overseas universtiy..? So what..? You are who you are..you are made different from the person next to you..so why compare..? The more you compare arent you are suck into the vicious cycle of life...? Money is never enough..be contented with what you have...if you want to get more...upgrade..upgrading of skills..invest time and put in effort if you think you cant make it...instead of whining...take that time to upgrade and read more...educate yourself..

Getting married..well many local guys have problems..and what is it..? Small social circle...so how.? Dare not step out of the turtle shell..because why low self esteem...dare not go for speed dating...dare not go to dating programmes..come on there are many programmes out there to help singles expand their social circle even there are tonnes of handphone apps like Okcupid, paktor, and a few more to help singles to get to know others....then here comes another problem...eee..they not pretty...not the kind of girls i am looking for...the true is...we are too shallow...men nowadays cant look passed looks...thinking looks is everything..what matters most is what you have inside..character, values, Point number 3...you are who you are...no one can de-value you..only yourself...so chest up look straight and display some confidence in yourself...
End of the day you complain n whine...problems still there..? Yes! Does it go away? No! Instead of sitting on the floor and drag out your keyboard to be a keyboard warrior but tried doing something more constructive? Like ask yourself the question..what do that guy have and I do not have..? And work on it? With this kind of spoilt brat attitude you will not get any girls...lets watch a video...


See? Pastor Nick is someone who was born without limbs...did he let his disability stop him from starting a family? No! So are you any lesser then him? No! If your intention is for Singaporean guys to get attached and such STOP PLANTING SEED OF FEAR IN THEM...by presenting false evidence here...and starts by showing how they can improve themselves...

Bald or wear a wig...

Good day folks, it is a start of a wonderfully short week, well this post is a response to an article that I have read on Straits Times on "3 girls who shaved head bald for charity told to wear wigs to school by principal" this article really caught my eyes..Well first of all lets take a look at what did the girls do?

First of all...the girls went for the Hair for Hope which is Children's Cancer Foundation signature fundraising event. It serves to raise funds and awareness of childhood cancer. For such a meaningful event, we see the inflexible of the Singapore's Schools. Lets take a look at the event..lots of people are questioning...why shave..? Well it is to raise awareness and to let those cancer suffering kids to know that it is ok to go bald..and it will still looks good.  

My question to St Marg principal...yes i agreed that the students should don a wig since they have promised to do so..it is the school original stance that irk me..So by making the girls wear a wig..does that defeat the purpose..? What are you thinking...? Let me see...this is your stand..The school's rules do not allow "punk, unfeminine or sloppy hairstyles". Said principal Marion Tan: "It's very clear in our mission: it's about their turnout as a young lady.-source Straits Times. 

So what is a young lady...? In bible context since you guys are a mission school..so you feel that being bald is not lady like...so it is by whose standard..? the world standard or God's standard..? In the gospel Matthew 7:1-2 " Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you" and in Romans 12:2 " Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of you mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is-his good, pleasing and perfect will." - both from NIV version. In the bible it clearly stated that we as christians, we dont judge..and dont conform to the world standards...but over here you have used the world standard to gauge that your students are not going to be lady like..in fact you have produce fantastic young ladies who CARE about the world...they are in fact living out...Matthew 5:13-16, Salt and light..That their simple actions are actually glorifying our father in heaven..but by asking them to don a wig..you are telling them it is WRONG to join the event..so how to be salt n light...?

I understand that the school worried about the fact that students may make use of this opportunity to go bald...but hey..this is a case by case...these girls are not doing it deliberately to challenge the system you have put in place...but for the greater good...so if you keep being so inflexible in your future actions, well i guess you will suffer more flaming...and im glad that you have reverse the action on donning the wig..but it is by mass public reactions... 

And to those who still feel that the girls should don a wig...just becoz they have promised...well you are not wrong too...but hey..what is the charity all about...? Showing awareness..if donning a wig..how to show awareness right...

And yes the final parting shot to the educators out there...you are in place to educate the right values to the kids under you..do you want to create a society of robots who only say yes sir yes sir..? then we will not have future for Singapore..as our kids or our future generation will only get squarer n squarer..with zero creativity it looks super bleak now...if you have the heart for our future...look at what you are teaching and prepared to bend a bit for the right cause...Happy holidays...

Child care..hmm..

Well in the recent light of child abuse..especially in child is under the care of school or places we called child care centre..where it supposed to be a safe haven for them..yet they are being abuse..and thank god for the inventor of cctv where we catch the teacher in her pickaboo moment..which spark off a series of chain mines..but before that..lets rewind and go back to 2012..Punggol East by-election..the issues by various residents and highly used by many parties..YES...Child care..so lets take a look at child care problem and see if there is a link...

First..the raising cost of child care...dont we so love money..so it is always a good start with money...a quick check with child care centres..you are expected to pay around 100 to 600 depending on how much you can afford and where you want to send your kid to...many parents have been saying child care are getting more and more expensive thus they are finding it hard to make ends meet with the raising cost on bread and butter..with our salary hardly moving....so how do we send kids to child care..now before all of you hit the like button..which I dont have..lets take a look at a typical day of a kid in child care...

Now you see it..they are feed..being educated..having fun with other kids..but the question is..where does the child care find the money to pay for the food..? To teaching materials for your princes n princesses..? And where do they find the money to hire the people that supposed to take care and educate your kids..? So many will go by aiyah we pay a lot every month..but if you actually pool the amount together..it is not a lot considering that the amount of bills they are paying electrical, food, educators, etc..the upkeep of a child care centre isn't cheap..

Now you are thinking right..? So lets take a look at where we can cut cost...hmm..food..I doubt you would want to feed your kids crap..not crab ah..so I dont think we can deduct from there...hmm so lesser work for them..eh..wait..arent you guys send them to child care centre to be educated at the same time someone looking after them while you are at work..so I dont think you will want to be short change here..if not they might end up losing to other kids when they go kindergarten or even primary school...so we reach the final component that can deduct child care teachers..yeah..aren't they do this job becoz of passion for kids...hmm...they dont mind taking home lesser pay right..WRONG..come on you people child care teachers are some people that we took for granted..and yet you guys want their pay to be deducted goodness...many people I know cant earn enough and ended up leaving the industry due to the ever raising cost and their salary indeed NOT moving..they are your kid next best friend you are at work everyday other then weekends..they are human too they have their families to feed too..can they just sustain on passion alone? Many of them maybe stressed up inside yet you dont know..it maybe the spark that the kid did..that spark off a series of chain reaction from the educator? Do you know that childcare teachers are one of the least appreciated educators..? They get puke on..scolded by parents for the most nitty gritty things like..why my son got bitten by mosquito..you most be laughing at it but it is true..I have heard stuff like this from my friends in the industry...in fact some parents leave the parenting espect to the educators...or even worse...technology..iphone, ipad just to name a few...so in this period of time cut some slack n take a step back...n remember they are humans too and they are doing something that you are not..so dont whine n complain something you cant do or wouldnt do...so hope this set u guys thinking...thank you..

Singapore Men Attitude Sucks Part II

Well..this is the 2nd part of the Singaporean Men attitude Sucks...this is the continuation of the post 3years ago...wait GOSH it was THAT LONG...

Anyway, now let see..I wanted to write this post because of the inspiration from the previous 2 post..yes..people it is the now super duper famous RJ who gave me the idea or rather it is HIS OPPONENT who gave me the idea..well as we all know that the issues is now over...but it is the way how this lets call him Ben-guy act and reacted make me worry about the next generation of kids..how they will grow up into..

First of all...lets see, well after the so call battle, the refusal to shake your opponent's hand, is a sign of dis-respect, not just to yourself but to the sports or the movement or the streets that you claim to represent..after that, you came to him and wanted to battle again...knowing you have the advantage by surrounding him with your gin-gang and started to scream and shout like an idiot shows that you are a sore loser...after which old man thinks that you will hands off...like what Joey had told RJ...But someone send me a PICTURE OF YOUR FACEBOOK POST....


Seriously man...I was pretty awe by you...first...your refusal to comment on the first battle you have with RJ...why...? You lost..? I think so..from my view...but your post STRESSED on the second battle after you act like a mad man..and it is NOT FACTUAL...wait i give you the benefit of doubt you are MIS-INFORMED..? First RJ SAID you dis-respected dance when you dis-respected yourself...why dont you mention that...oh...yah..it is the fact...you dis-respected dance and yourself...it is a fact...why dont you mention here...o...people will agree...hmm...it will not look good...HMMM...

I know I know...this post is supposed to make your ego feels better right...and continue to flame RJ right...dont hide...old man can see..So this post is so call protect your ego...painful right losing to a nobody...Im sure it hurts...old man been through it..Ah Boy...by the look at your profile...you dont look to be in your 10s or even 20s..you should be well in your 30s...why do you keep acting like a small kid...? It saddens me...well..if we keep having man in their 30s acting like teenagers, with ego that needed to be protected..I will see a very serious issue when we are out number by the FTs..Singaporean men keep saying we cant find a wife...must go China, Vietnam etc..because they have better attitude...look we have a classic here...man acting like a kid..if man complain about women attitude what about women..? They cant complain about us..? But good thing...you thank you fans for coming down...it is good..be thankful..

If I'm the only one saying it well it is my fault...but a quick check with a owner of a now defunct dance studio, someone who knows this Ben-guy, mention he had serious attitude problem..

Saving Grace, this whole incident, I saw the sincere heart of RJ standing up admitting his mistake, braving all critics, showing and be a man...this is the kind of attitude we are going to look at stand up to be counted...and this is worth mentioning..It take a man to fight...IT TAKE A GREATER MAN to WALK AWAY from a Fight..Lets pray and hope that there will be more RJs then Ah BEN...Cheers.....

News flash....

News flash....just witness myself at phuture singapore...seems that RJ did better then Ben..haha..sorry as a bystander and someone among the crowd...come on Ben..you are someone a got to say..no sportsmanship..you dont even deserved to be known as a dancer...as I seen after the dance off was call off by the bouncers you still refused to shake your opponent hand shows that you got no respect for dance itself..yes RJ disrespected the dance scene and you...disrespected the sports...or something that Kai mention not a sports...but a passion...you just disrespected it totally and if im a dancer I will not even respect you..

You are good but you just need your attitude to be checked...so what you can shake your body to be frank but you dont dance as good as RJ after I did a quick check with neutrals around the dance floor...you cant even beat his matrix...come on..yours basic moves are good...his basic move might not be as good...but his finishing moves or whatever you call it was crazy...and to be dancing in front of so many or your so call friends he did much better then you as 70-80% out here is to dishonor him..It seems like a POPULARITY CONTEST then a DANCE BATTLE....you guys are simply bullshit...you JUST want to diss him to make your HURT ego feels better...and I did a quick check with some dancers...they too felt Ben had lost it..Yeah Ben you are popular...but...dance wise...RJ beat you with his 3 sets...or maybe 2...lol..I would consider 2...

A view by Mr. M, " It was so obvious that he tried to diss the fat boy with his blah move, I was kind of yawning when he is doing his stuff..Any FOOLS can do what he did, Hence my boredom.. That fool turn the dance battle into a popularity contest.. and it is kinda sad, at least he could've done was shake the fat boy hand..instead he behaved like a prissy little bitch..I arent got no respect for them..False Pride...he arent doing nothing I havent seen before, thats for sure..People without substance, thats why he brought back up..." 

Another view by a dancer Mr. A, " RJ was good but a little off beat, but he was slightly better then Ben as Ben choose to go and disrespect RJ, yet RJ is giving his best with a clearly injured leg...and I have never seen a Singaporean do the matrix...then laid flat down and do a total reverse of it...it was like does he got a back-bone..? Or did he gave to Hello Kitty.."

Another view by a retired dancer, whom I happened to know..."RJ did a good job"

By Mr. Cal, "RJ was simply awesome."

The rest of your click or I assume...Most of them said this..."Ben simply diss that guy like what he said he would.."

See Mr. M did echo a few personal point of view of mine in the previous post...dancers without substance..will always worried about how people view about them..If you are good you are good...why worried...basically his EGO WAS HURT the way when I heard him shouting at RJ...which he firmly displayed it...stop hiding...it maybe thrash talking...but it is SO...obvious...it was so hilarious...it was Ben was a joke...

Sorry Joey, I want to believe what you have said...but it seems that the current problems is on Ben and not on RJ...Do a quick check...you maybe defending Ben...as he is your teacher....which i overheard the idiot shouting it..So it is good...but you need to evaluate is it worth it...I read what is on Ben profile...Sorry it was something you said it is between you, Ben and RJ..but it seems that Ben keep wanting to stir shit and keep stirring and keep stirring..correct me if im wrong..so what to increase his popularity...he was a disgrace and didnt act as a Professional...he teach dance am i right...So i guess can classified him as a professional dancer? Now seeing what he did...he acted like a SMALL BOY....how old is he...? 16..? His reaction is what my nephew would react...so if you are telling me that the whole dance community acts like that...then the whole dance community is a small boy mentality that needs to grow up...your scene is not the only scene in the world if you guys keep saying it is ok...then fine stay that way...and keep living in your lala land and stay there...streets what streets? SESAME STREETS???

PRO - Dancers??

Well it came to light as I witness something interesting on a friend's friend who got into some issue with the dance community and i found it rather interesting and got myself humour by it. Well it all started by the friend, lets call him RJ. He made a comment on that he felt he should have joined the dance competition as he felt he is good enough to take on the guys n gals he seen during the semi-final of R16 dance competition, thus he started to post that he can take on those guys with 1-leg..so apparently it got the community upset as he wasnt part of the community in the first place. And the feel it is not right for him to make those insensitive comments. So some flaming started by the dance community, which I find it super funny.

Well, on one side we have an amateur dancer who just injured his leg (thus 1 leg dancing) and on the other hand, we have a bunch of pros complaining that he had dis-respected them and they started to challenge him to dance. Well the disturbing fact that got my attention was how did a bunch of pros get upset by a comment or a few comments. I mean if you are good, do you really care what other says..? People with really talents and skills dont really care about how others feel about them. So are the pros scared of him...or they simply have no confidence in themselves in what they can do..? Or was it in the culture of the dance community that have this attitude that no one is better them or is their ego hurt by his comments? Everyone is entitled their own comments their own view. So why get upsets by his comments..? Why i dont understand? I mean famous people out there got negative comments all the time...so are they going to challenge every single one out there who give them negative comments..? Actors, actress, footballers, football managers, sports person, djs, music producers, singers they got it all the time...SO what make these pro dancers SO SPECIAL...it is becoz it is the first time someone actually say it to their face or are they having self denial..? It is a freaking kid mentality...come on...someone say something bad to you, something you dont like..then you felt hey I need to get back at this guy...it is SOOOOOOOOOOO CHILDISH....it look like something i will see in a primary school playground...Gosh...if you have been joining competition here and there...working as an dance instructor..Using dance to earn a living, it make you a professional...so HAVE SOME PROFESSIONAL ATTITUDE.... God please save these kids..

And you know something...that guy RJ actually apologize as he didnt mean to offend anyone or discredit or disrespect any people just that his command of english maybe bad...with bad phrasing n bad choices of words, the meaning of his original intention became somewhat misinterpreted n he is sorry about it and he did post an apology but all the PROS say he is not sincere keep wanting to challenge him. SO are they scared of him..? Or is it their pride is hurt. Either way RJ should get his ass whack when the battles is on. Or will we see an fairy tale ending? No matter how I look at this, the Pros is on the losing end...you can win the dance battle, but you will never be the better person as RJ admits his mistake as a MAN, and the PRO dancers just keep whining as a kid. It looks BAD ON THE WHOLE DANCING COMMUNITY...these PRO poppers / lockers...i have no idea what it meant, im just a blogger JUST ruining the name of dancers in singapore. In fact as if im a dancer, I will never want to associate myself with these kids. And can someone give RJ a dictionary. O...by the way...what the PROs are doing to him is online bullying...please take note...

To the PROs...STOP WHINING n start ACTING LIKE ONE n GIVE HIM A BREAK...n to RJ seriously brush up your english ok...

Cheers...btw i will be rooting for fairy tale....

Haze Haze Haze...

Here we are again....well the Haze has given me lots of time now to put up a post...wahaha....Anyway, it has been a rising concern over the week with soaring PSI which stands for Pollutant Standard Index or i prefer this...Please Stay Indoors...and many more...

With the index breaking records day after day, from 321 to 371 to 390 to 400 n to 401 (is there a difference?)..many raised concern on the stop work issue, and many also asked is the index best served as a 3hr average or 1hr update...and of course the relevant authorities can come up with proper guildlines to let us follow? Till today, after 6days of suffering i still unsure of what exactly the measure the govt is coming up with regarding the unwanted people between 19-64. Of course control of N95 mask.

Ok lets visit the index first...well I think the 3hrs average is good as it is to prevent any panic within the small nation of Singapore..but as now the situation had already worsen to the extend that there is already a panic, why cant you guys just release the actual hourly index? Like currently as Im typing, the sky outside my room is like super clear...and PSI stands at 263. Thus is it the best? And when the haze was bad, visibility drops to 50m or slightly more, the index is only 100odd, it kind of give people the false sense of security. What if 1st hour is 50,2nd hour is 50, then out of the blue jump to 200, the average 3hr reading is 100 shown, so is it unhealthy or super unhealty? If you guys want your stand it is fine..but is it good to release 2 readings (not 3hrs n 24hrs) instead? Or is the figure too high? Anyway we arent stupid people we know the figure is indeed way higher then what we see so please, dont fool us, we arent stupid. But which is worst? Irregardless of human life, or a nationwide panic(which we are already kind of in it)...I let you choose...

Now the stop work issue. Well the index had tip the bar not once, not twice but four times. Many are concern about the health issues that may arise from it. Especially those working in the outdoors. Special mentions to McDonalds, KFC, Pastamania, Pizza Hut, and many more delivery service that had stopped their service due to haze. Good Job guys. But now, how about the rest of Singapore? What is working in outdoor? Does it mean you have a roof over your head, with the doors open wide, means you are working indoors? What is the standard? To me, places with natural ventilation irregardless you have a shelter over your head should be considered outdoor conditions.The govt can issue advisory, which I do agree that they cant issue a stop all work order, as many of us have different work scope, and different working environment. But can you guys issue a stop work order, to places like shipyards, or industrial companies with natural ventilation, when the readings spike? It kind of break my heart to see bangalas working when the PSI is like 401. Mind you 401. All because they have a n95 mask n it is alright to work? Come On, they are humans too. I do understand the stop work order will force the not so alive economy to take a dip. But money more impt the human life? Or the other way around? Another special mention to childcares, many childcares centre face the issue of shutting down or not to shutdown due to haze. But they arent, why? Becoz the authorities said it HAS TO COME DOWN FROM GOVT....so dear ministers CAN YOU GUYS LOOK INTO IT..? School will not reopen if haze carry on...so WHAT ABOUT CHILD CARE..? Sorry to all working parents, but it is important that your kids stay indoor as long as possible.

Good Job Govt for providing the health care to kids n elderly, what about the in betweens? Are we outcast? I do agree that the in betweens are slightly or more FIT people, according to the "world standards" but with constant junk food, irregular working hours, stress over populations n PSI, n shock (for discovering our govt throwing smoke bomb at us<http://therealsingapore.com/content/nea-%E2%80%99smokes%E2%80%99-singaporeans-dinosaur-age-psi-readings>) do you think we are that fit now? All human fall sick regardless of age, shape, size, n sex. A 56 years old guy may not be as fit as a 65 year old guy. I personally know a guy who can do marathons in 4hrs plus and he is inching 70. And i know people who are in the 30-40s that cant even finish 2.4km. So is the 70 fitter then the 30-40s? Or the other way around? What do you think? (ok correction the unwanted people...u r wanted now..i when to see doctors today n it is haze related..so only pay $10 for it...citizens ONLY)

Oooo..N95 mask....not Nokia N95 people...when haze first hit....the sales of mask went up...thus making lots of places jacking up the prices...what $75 for a box of 20 @ Watsons??? Goodness...daylight robbery? Well it is call supply n demand...nothing much im going to comment on this...but hey...arent these mask from MOH..? So why are you selling THAT STEEP...did MOH SELL u guys..? I dont know...u think lor...

But at least the govt is doing something about the needy who most probably cant afford the sky high mask...so providing for them is good. But cant u guys do it earlier? By doing it so late means that you guys arent prepared for it. Which leads me to another question...Is our govt prepared for disasters..? Years ago we had the PONDING issues, now we have haze...seems that we are kind of ill-equipped...or NOT prepared to tackle these issues until it arises, then the blame game will start...the NNP giving mask in potong pasir...compared to my minister talking...n blaming this blaming that...can we look into the more pressing issues..the welfare of your people...n not wear nice nice....n say something...have you ever heard of empty vessel makes the MOST NOISE...Which is more pressing at the moment..? Health...or answer my questions..? You answer my questions late ah....no one will die...you dont settle the health care problem...u die, I die, everybody die...So my minister cant even prioritise which is MORE impt...so what for i pay him millions A year..? I let you do the thinking ok...Cheers...enjoy the hazeless sky while we can....appreciate things we take for granted...take care....STAY INDOORS......

White Paper = Toilet Paper ?

Good day to all, I'm sorry for not posting for so long due to work and personal commitments. Anyway, recently our dear Singapore Ruling Party, the AWESOME or AWFUL(to some people)PAP has LOST another seat in the parliament due to Mr. Palmer refusing to keep at 1 personal decision. So it lead to him resigning as a member of Parliament, in fact i quite like him. Haha..So due to him resigning, Punggol East had a by-election...yeah..but too bad no extra holiday..But now the scrutiny falls on the PAP. While taking a pop shot at Workers' Party last year on the issue of Mr. Yew Shin Loong of his integrity and how did Workers' Party choose their candidates, aren't this the pot calling the kettle black..? Is PAP losing it..? Maybe..

Then i heard this during the recent by-election, to Mr. Kenneth Jeyaretnam for running the by-election, "Aiya the people ask you not to join, you still join, serve you right for losing the money!" these sentences saddens me. If we said KJ shouldn't be part of the government just because he don't listen to the PEOPLE..so all those in the parliament shouldn't be there at all..are they REALLY LISTENING TO THE PEOPLE..? Lets take a good look at White Paper... First of all...working towards 6.9 million...with current human count(excluding tourists) is standing at 5.3 million..and according to Singapore Tourism Board we have 13.2 million tourists in 2011 (unable to find 2012) that is on average 1.1 million tourists every month..if you add on to that figure of 5.3 million we will have a grand total of 6.4 million on a total land area of 714.3 km², which measures 49 kilometres from East to West and 25 kilometres from North to South with 19 km of coastline. So to work towards 6.9 million, we will have to give birth to more kids or to import more "FT". but first lets take a look at 2011 General Elections, all the key issue brought up by the citizens of Singapore:

 - Immigration. Foreigners now make up 36 percent of Singapore's population of 5.1 million, up from around 20 percent of 4 million people a decade earlier, which is becoming an irritant to many citizens. They have complained about competition for jobs and housing, the dilution of Singapore's national identity, as well as increasingly crowded roads, buses and trains. For the many foreigners who work in Singapore, and firms that use the city-state as their regional base, the key issue is whether the government will continue the open immigration policies that makes it easy for foreigners to work in Singapore if there is a sharp drop in support for the PAP.

 - Inflation and inequality. Relatively high inflation and income inequality could also affect support for the PAP. Despite stellar economic growth in one of Asia's wealthiest nations, many poorer Singaporeans feel they have fallen through the cracks as government policy is focused on expansion and attracting foreign investment. GDP grew 14.5 percent last year, but government data shows the city-state's median household income rose a much smaller 3.1 percent, or 0.3 percent after adjusting for inflation, to S5,000 ($4,022) a month last year. Singapore's bottom 10 percent of households with at least one working member had an average monthly income of S$1,400 last year, versus S$23,684 for households in the top 10 percent, according to the Department of Statistics. Prices are also a worry. Singapore's inflation rate is currently running above 5 percent and the central bank recently said consumer price index (CPI) inflation will likely come in at the upper end of a 3-4 percent range this year.

 - Housing. Many young Singaporeans feel they can no longer afford homes, unlike their parents' generation, and they feel that government's immigration policies are partly to blame. Singapore has one of the world's highest rates of home ownership at 87 percent, thanks to a home-building programme to provide cheap housing for its citizens that began in the late 1960s. But the government's Housing and Development Board (HDB) is building fewer flats and charging more for them. The Workers' Party, the strongest of Singapore's small opposition parties, said in its manifesto it would price new government-built HDB apartments at a level such that buyers will take 20 years to pay off their mortgage instead of 30.

 Above are some issue brought up during the 2011 GE...the first and foremost..immigration...the people has been telling the government LOOK WE ARE OVER CROWDED...if at 5.1 million we already cannot take it..will we be able to take it by 2030 with 6.9 million? Are the MPs who draw $15 000 monthly pay walking the ground and listening to the people..? If you guys say well people are leaving together happily now well take a look at the The New Paper dated 14th Feb 2013. The headline, 3 hurt while queuing to buy NEWSPAPER. Just by buying a newspaper, the guy end up in the hospital, well if you said it is an isolated incident, then have you guys tried to board a bus or train during rush hour..? The amount of shoving, people do JUST to get onto the bus or the train? And for those who are gentle creature, they tend to be out shove by the bigger fiercer, aunties or uncles. If at 5.4 million we have to shove..at 6.9 million we have to whack..? Gone are the days where people give way to older folks, kids and people with needs...now do we really want 6.9 million..?

Have you guys realized that the society is become lesser and lesser gracious towards each other...part of it is due to being overcrowded...But are you guys listening...? Or we are simply NOISES to you..? Your father our Dear Mr. Lee Kuan Yew had mention with our land space...at best we can only accommodate 5.5 million at max. But you aren't listening to your father..by the way get well soon. Over crowding has cause serious issue like slight social unrest. Everyday seems like a competition. Competition for space on train or bus, competition to find a place to seat in food centre, even now...competition to get a roof over our head..Well i do agree a little competition is good...but now we are having TOO MUCH COMPETITION..and do you know that..?

Can you guys solve the most immediate problems before trying to squeeze more people into Singapore. Many folks are trying hard to make ends meet..with the REAL peanuts we earn monthly..most of the time we just happened to have just enough for everything. Do you guys realize it..? I doubt all the policies made so far..doesn't exactly benefit Singaporeans especially the poor..Baby bonus is a classic example of not benefitting the poor...you need to put in 6k then the govt will match dollar to dollar you put in...but what if the couple got no money..? They can afford like maybe 1k..the government put in...1k...so is that a promise of 6k by the government..? NO...These are the people we need to take care and look after and pay more attention..
 
Here something for everyone to think about..Singaporeans are not having more kids due to the ever raising cost, so where to the "replacement" and the additional figures come from...? Import loh...WAIT...what is the first issue mention during the 2011 General Elections...? Hmm...I wonder wonder wonder....

Accident @ Bugis...

Good day to all my fans out there....so sorry to take a break from my keyboard...now I think there is an issue that is so pressing that I have return...and guys it is not related to Hougang By-election...but the gruesome accident that happened at Bugis which left 2 innocent people dead...the taxi driver and the Japanese tourist...well for the Mr. Ma...i dont consider him innocent... But I'm not blogging about him...But...to those idiots who defended him...with all due respect lets watch the video... It is clearly seen in the video...the traffic light has turn green not 1 not 2 but a good 5 seconds...before the Ferrari hits the taxi...someone actually said that the taxi driver is at fault...GOODNESS...have you guys even drive before...? Or even attempted to take the BASIC DRIVING THEORY? In fact that for someone to start defending him...n so happened to come from China...cause more unrest in Singapore over the topic...I think it is still fresh from the mind that some time ago...an old lady was KNOCK DOWN by a bus and dragged for a distance before he aware that he have knock down someone...how about a PRC robbed a taxi and killed a Malaysian cleaner working at the airport..? All these are still fresh on people mind...and come on...yes I agreed that the Ferrari is a very very fast car...but does it give the right to beat the RED LIGHT..? If yes...then I will say the taxi driver is at fault because we always have to give the right of the road to those driving Ferrari... The issue isnt about the made of the car or the country of origin of the driver...but the seriousness of this accident.. Firstly by driving at that speed as shown in the video clearly indicated that the drover have no respect for Singapore's Law... Secondly, by driving at that speed, the driver have shown NO RESPECT for fellow road users... Thirdly, he have made no attempted to break...which is actually a doubt cause he might not have time to react...then again what is he doing if he is not paying attention to the road..? Fourthly, he has caused 2 I repeat 2 not 1 but 2 innocent life to be lost... For whoever that still wants to defend the Ferrari driver actions, you are clearly ignorant and i wonder do u even owns a driving license to begin with... The more you defend your countrymen it either shows that you have no respect for people in Singapore and it also shows that you have a very bad upbringing...with no respect for people around...So dear Martin keep ur mouth shut...n ur fingers off the keyboard....same for the rest of the PRC trying to defend him..btw some PRC actually said the Ferrari driver is at fault they are judging the case BY evidence and not by person...and we generally dun hate PRC it is PRC who made us hate them...ur actions and ur attitude is the reason why we dislike u guys... For the Japanese student...so sorry u have to die in another country and unable to see your love ones...it is due to our incapable education on road safety that this accident had happened... To the Taxi driver...thank you for serving and I do enjoy your service back then when u send me home safely like a few months back...so Sir rest in peace yeah...
