How to be filthy rich

The Westlite Dormitory saga has resulted in many interesting discussions. The dormitory is managed by Centurion Corporation Ltd. I learnt a lot from Facebook!

Centurion Corporation Ltd was once featured in an article in TOC, The Online Citizen sometime in April 2020. It was one of the biggest companies that manages dormitories for migrant workers in Singapore. In that article, the mismanagement of some of their dormitories had resulted in vast number of Covid-19 infections among the workers. The investigative journalist also exposed the wealth and connections of some of the directors of Centurion Corporation Ltd.

If we visit Centurion’s website, you will notice that a number of its directors are recipients of PAP awards, PBM, BBM. Don’t ask me what these titles stand for but I understand that these are given to outstanding PAP grassroot leaders who have made huge contributions to society. In their website, the directors with such titles are:

Mr Loh Kim Kang David, PBM, BBM
Mr Han Seng Juan, PBM, BBM
Mr Chandra Mohan s/o Rethnam PBM, BBM
Ms Tan Ph Hong PBM, PPA(E)

The vision of Centurion Corporation are impressive and boldly stated as:

“To be one of the Global Leading providers of quality accommodation and related professional management services.”

And its Mission is “To be an accommodation provider of choice through a holistic management approach, offering our residents quality and comfortable accommodation within safe and active community”

Westlite Dormitory is one of the many dormitories managed by Centurion Corporation. We have seen that the dormitory has not been well managed and the workers residing there are treated worse than prisoners in our prisons. At least in the latter, there is a minimum standard of hygiene. I nearly vomit when I saw pictures of food exposing worms and insects that are fed to Westlite workers.

The Online Citizen had exposed the wealth of some of the directors of Centurion Corporation. One of these is Mr Han Seng Juan, PBM, BBM. His wife, Susanna Kang was featured in the article showing off their wealth.

I was amazed that we have such filthy rich and well connected people in Singapore. Just enjoy Susanna Kang’s House of the Four Seasons at Sentosa Cove here.

Now we know how some rich people in Singapore live. They don’t care about poor people. They enjoy luxurious lives. They have the power to summon the police at any time – 4 special riot vehicles, numerous police vehicles and a great number (I counted more than 30) of fully armed Gurkhas and police personnel within the shortest possible time, just to threaten a group of ill-treated, sick and starving foreign workers.

I ask Minister K Shanmugam these questions:

Why did he allow his police force to be misused by Centurion Corporation?

Will he and or the Ministry of Manpower take action against Centurion Corporation for failing to provide “quality and comfortable accommodation within safe and active community”?

I think the least Centurion Corporation can do to redeem a bit of its ruined reputation is to offer the luxurious Four-seasons house to the workers of Westlite so that they can recover from the trauma of their recent terrible experiences.

    MOM still very quiet on this Westlite incident, hor? So when TSL said he learnt a lot from JT, it is evidently so – learned how to be F-blur, how to taken cover when a big problem occurred, how to claim any scrap of credit and siam any screw-up, how to be incompetent (pappies also must pay themselves to learn how to be incompetent???), how to talk-cork-sing-song, etc. Maybe his eventual explanations for this Westlite case will be – (1) he was on MC that day, (2) blame the radar operator, and (3) nobody demanded an apology.

  • all the legal barriers:

    aiyoh it is the “same” lar in most profit-making enterprises, the low end of the value chain (e.g lower wage workers??) are generally “exploited and trained” to be contented so that the higher up in the value chain can afford to have a “bigger voracious” appetite and make better demand for their ownself-say-ownself talented “skills” ???

    power inbalance lar where the upper class is generally united (influence and connection hence better lobby) while the lower class is kept disunited by all the legal barriers designed by the powerful former class ????

  • GREAT SETBACK OUR INSTITUTION:

    IT SEEM that the PAP GAGMT GIVE FREELY TO THEIR OWN GRASSROOT LEADERS PBM.BBM
    etc,etc, over many yrs….their own khaki,CRONIES.
    CRONISM,NEPOTISM ARE THRIVING AND RAMPANT under pap gagmt,a self serving gagmt THUS DESTROYING THE FABRICS OF GOOD GOVERNANCE…..THERE IS NO ACCOUNTABILITY AND TRANSPARENCY UNDR PAP.
    PAP GAGMT CANNOT CLAIM THEY ARE TRANSPARENT,ACCOUNTABLE WHEN THEY REFUSED TO
    TO ACCEDE TO GOOD GOVERNANCES DESPITE DEMANDS FROM PUBLIC AND OPPOSITIONS.
    HENCE THERE IS NO INTEGRITY.
    EVEN THE WORLD WIDE SCANDALS OF CORRUPTIONS OF KEPPEL O&M ,a laughing stock to the world as no actions taken on top MANAGEMENT,destroying the good name of our SINGAPORE.
    Many financial abuses in ministries as reported by AG over the yrs, hardly any remedial corrections as the cases resurfaced many times.
    DONT FORGET A SMALL DUSTBIN COSTED $1M IN PAP CONSYTITUENCY…..NO ACTION TAKEN.

  • Gautama Buddha says .....:

    “The way to happiness is as such: keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry. Live simply, give much. Fill your life with love. Do to others as you would be done by them… Do not give up your authority and blindly follow the will of others. This way will only lead to delusion.”

  • The small animals in the food looks so fake. If its already there when cooked, why are all of them so clean? The positioning also so neat.

    Could it be that the workers decided to make it appear jialut jialut so they catch in the dorm and out it in?

  • theforgottongeneration:

    Notice no news from NEA/MOM/whatever on whether they inspected the place(s) where the food was prepared, and what cleanliness grade was given to Centurion or its vendors. Meanwhile, Singaporeans are made to clear their own trays and tables at hawker centers to maintain a “clean” environment. Typical Pappies not Walking the Talk themselves, hor? Seems like no sincerity from them nowadays, only (very) sincere about their million$ salary, hor.

  • No wonder:

    After so many days, there is still no denial/pofma from gov or food supplier.

    It must be because someone found the real situation is even worse!

    Response: Totally agree with your observation.

    Btw those jokers who are MOSTLY GRASS-EATING LEEders WHEN AWARDED BY THE PRE$IDENT THE PBM(Puki Boss Medal), BBM(Biggest Boss Medal), would RECEIVE CONGRATULATIONS MESSAGE IN MAJOR LOCAL NEWSPAPERS PROMINENTLY LIKE THE SHITS TIMES from fellow PBM and BMM RECIPIENTS!

    Looks like these PBM and BBM Holee stuffs are NOT SIMPLE but are actually are ways for MOST RECIPIENTS to MOVE FORWARDS TO GREAT THINGS AHEAD. Great example, like preferences treatment for LUBRICATING and LUCRATIVE Coverment contracts, so on and so forth, NO? Holee shits!
