TOC Files Judicial Review Challenge To IMDA’s Suspension Of It’s Services And Activities On It’s Social Media Platforms   Lim Tean  

The closure of The Online CitizenThe closure of The Online Citizen TOC has done a lot more than any other publications to amplify the voices of the marginalised.

Way before the high court judge acquitted her, TOC was already questioning the judicial process, something which no media...

FairPrice – is it really fair price?FairPrice – is it really fair price? I wanted to start a new regime of dieting by eating more cereals and visited NTUC FairPrice this week.

I was shocked to see the same product at a very discounted price. I went back...

Brain-Dead or Washed Locals: We Are Better Than MalaysiaBrain-Dead or Washed Locals: We Are Better Than Malaysia Came across a PAPPY diehard fan, strangely she claimed to know all the lousy policies and how things are getting worst and worst and the answer she gave me is, "We are still better than Malaysia" and "if you unhappy why you still in Singapore".

SDA's statement on Pasir Ris FloodingSDA's statement on Pasir Ris Flooding I was sending my son to school this morning before heading to work when I noticed the water level build-up at Pasir Ris Drive 12.

Pandemic AssessmentPandemic Assessment Let me give you a few key reasons and lets appraise together. 1. No sick no wear mask - underestimated the problem, abundance of masks from Taiwan, but told no need to send to Singapore. 2.

I Don'T Celebrate National Day AnymoreI Don'T Celebrate National Day Anymore One day while talking to a new citizen from China, she told me the RC handed her many NDP tickets for her friends. Then I recalled many locals balloting NDP tickets for years and never got them. And how these tickets can be easily accessed by new migrants. I believe they were using these events to impress foreigners, particularly...
