Will the public 'commons' of Dover or Clementi Forests be converted to private condos in the future?Will the public 'commons' of Dover or Clementi Forests be... I refer to the articles, "Nature groups oppose zoning of Dover Forest in Ulu Pandan for residential use - The Straits Times, 17 January 2021), "Dover Forest To Make Way For Residential Development, Netizen Starts Petition To Reconsider Decision" and "Ulu Pandan BTO flats in 2021: Prices + What to Expect". It is saddening...

The TraceTogether saga is another sad – and frightening – chapter of our political historyThe TraceTogether saga is another sad – and frightening... What’s the big deal, some say? It’ll only be used by the police for criminal investigations. Nothing to fuss about if you’re not anywhere near the underworld. Perhaps. But there’s also POFMA. Remember all the hand-wringing when the PAP told us something had to be done about deliberate online falsehoods? Post-legislation,...

Sinovac failure - A failed gamble by the Singapore GovernmentSinovac failure - A failed gamble by the Singapore Government Sinovac was one of the vaccines that Singapore placed an order for. These pre-orders were a punt, a gamble, but a calculated risk. Most of the companies behind the vaccines were established and had well-known track records. Sinovac has had a sketchy history of bribe. It also has a history of non-transparency. Even...

No 10M But........No 10M But........ I remember Dr Chee and LT were all POFMAed because they mentioned about 10M population. Mr Singh asked the same question many times in parliament but the govt never really answered directly but chose to dodge again and again. Now election is over, I just received a shock of my life. (Population in Brief 2020) 22,714...

Foreigners Turned New Citizens Lost Identity?Foreigners Turned New Citizens Lost Identity? Recently, I met two persons, one Chinese and one Indian. So while I was talking to the Chinese, I noticed his Mandarin is perfect and sounded like PRC. So when I asked him if he is from China, he said no. Then I asked if he is new citizen, he said no. So my friend and me confirmed he is from China surely. The next incident...

PSP's Statement on Ministers backtracking on their TraceTogether promisesPSP's Statement on Ministers backtracking on their TraceTogether... At the party launch in August 2019, we emphasized the need to have a government that is transparent, independent and accountable to its people. These are the cornerstones of our party’s political ethos. We are deeply troubled by what is happening in our nation today - the PAP is backtracking on its words and since...

MSM Aggressively Brainwashing Locals To Downgrade To Menial JobsMSM Aggressively Brainwashing Locals To Downgrade To Menial... One ex-sales director is now happy doing food delivery. One ex-PMET office lady is happy and stress free doing food delivery. One returning overseas Australian graduate very happy becoming hawker with her parents. One retrenched ex-PMET happy doing PHV. Why is the MSM doing these promotions again and again. WSG also promoting...

Ushering in 2021Ushering in 2021 As we enter the new year, I wish the lives of all Singaporeans and friends are improving steadily. As we suffered throughout 2020, we have also been learning and we should have by now a better idea of how to deal with Covid-19 and the New Normal created by it. With more knowledge, economic activities will pick up from...

My political farewellMy political farewell The journey was indeed exciting, and I have learnt so much from being able to hear from so many of you, and to have been able to help some of you. I came with an objective to help, and expected nothing in return. For me, it is now about finding the path on which I wish to serve others, and to be able to continue impacting...

We build a strong and relevant society by starting out rightWe build a strong and relevant society by starting out right It is both sad and appalling when our society again revealed its ugly side in the most recent school bullying incident as reported in Today and Mothership. A girl with different abilities from the rest of her schoolmates was called hurtful names and assaulted physically. This continued for more than a year, despite the...

Disappearance of Felicia Teo Wei LingDisappearance of Felicia Teo Wei Ling Recently, there has been a flurry of developments to the missing case of the Late Felicia Teo who vanished since 2007. Fast forward to Dec 2020, (not withstanding the anxiety and anguish her loved ones faced during these 13 years) there has finally been a murder charge labelled on a Malay gentleman while the other...

Everything also you say oneEverything also you say one I refer to this article by ST. Quote: He added that he had also republished his ministerial statements outside Parliament, thereby waiving his parliamentary privilege. This would allow his siblings to sue him over the statements, but they have not done so, he pointed out. Huh?! Simi lanjiao?! If you got a problem with...

Why Forests Are Aggressively Disapperaing?Why Forests Are Aggressively Disapperaing? During last General Election, certain oppositions talked about 10M population, they were POFMAed. So they claimed there is so such 10M population. I remember KBW said 6.9M was just a planning parameter when we were around 5M++, today we are 5.8M. Next I noticed Tengah Airport and Bukit Brown are giving way to new development....
