Roy Ngerng's proposed full settlement to Lee Hsien LoongRoy Ngerng's proposed full settlement to Lee Hsien Loong Hello everyone, thank you again for contributing to the crowdfunding movement! And good Saturday afternoon! With the help of all of you to raise the money the prime minister has demanded, my lawyer Eugene Thuraisingam and Ariffin Sha have sent out a letter to Lee Hsien Loong's lawyer to inform him that I will be...

Political Succession In Red Dot Is Always PlottedPolitical Succession In Red Dot Is Always Plotted Suddenly Ah Kiat announced he is stepping back, people started to think political succession is in chaos. Don't be stupid la, it is planned, the man behind is Pinky and Empress Dowager. Remember Ah Kiat when he recovered from his stroke, the first thing he asked is work. Why would Ah Kiat suddenly said he is too old for...

Crowdfunding for Roy NgerngCrowdfunding for Roy Ngerng There are very few people like Roy Ngerng who dare to speak up on behalf of all Singaporeans on the CPF issue while working at the Tan Tock Seng Hospital as a Health Executive. I first heard him speak at the Speakers Corner in Hong Lim some years ago and as a 72 year old retiree then I admired his courage and gumption...

Support for Roy NgerngSupport for Roy Ngerng I am penning this in support of Roy Ngerng, who is in exile overseas so he can work and pay off a debt he owes to our already over bloated PM through constant victories in a series of defamation suits. Roy is well educated and holds a fairly decent well-paying job, that is, until, he decided to embark on a path less...

Performance of NCMPsPerformance of NCMPs I previously feedback on the severely lacking medical facilities in the western region encompassing Jurong and West Coast GRCs and had received a call from the Polyclinic.

Time in Changi prisonTime in Changi prison When you arrive in Changi prison, with your hands and feet in cuffs, a dog will sniff you for drugs, and then followed by a strip search.

It is so confusing here in SingaporeIt is so confusing here in Singapore Now I wonder. Is this legal? I held up my book in a public place without prior permission to be photographed. What if I printed the cover out and pasted it on a placard? What if I added a smiley face to the printout that said "Support Me". It is so confusing here in Singapore.   * Facebook post by Yee Jenn...

The paradox of the Public Order ActThe paradox of the Public Order Act This whole thing of being investigated for holding a playcard without a permit is getting ridiculous. It is now PAP MP Louis Ng at the receiving end of the police investigation for holding a playcard to support hawkers. This is similar to Jolovan Wham's case where he held a placard with a smiley face in front of a police...

Why PSP's proposed levy of $1,200 will right-tilt jobs towards SingaporeansWhy PSP's proposed levy of $1,200 will right-tilt jobs towards... I'll tell you why Progress Singapore Party's NCMP Leong Mun Wai's suggestion of $1,200 levy for employment pass holders will rebalance PMET jobs in the mid-high salary range towards Singaporeans. Let's say you hire a Singaporean in his prime for a job which pays $6,000, the employer's actual cost for hiring him is...

The Pappy Model Decade After DecadeThe Pappy Model Decade After Decade This chart I did it out of fun but I think this is how Singapore works, with due respect.

Quick thoughts on Budget 2021Quick thoughts on Budget 2021 Here are my 2 quick thoughts on Budget 2021. 1. Drawing on past reserves In the last General Elections, the Singapore Democratic Party (SDP) had proposed to suspend GST till end-2021, pay retrenched workers 50% of their last drawn salary for 18 months & provide a $500 monthly retirement income for lower-income...

The Budget Arithmetic PuzzleThe Budget Arithmetic Puzzle Every year, the Budget is an arithmetic puzzle. Even financial professionals like me have problems piecing everything together because you have to go beyond the smoke screen and look for the detailed data, which are often incomplete. However, I do get a sense of the overall picture and I am going to share my understanding...

Why the PWM when high rents are killing businesses?Why the PWM when high rents are killing businesses? The PAP is considering introducing the Progressive Wage Model (aka minimum wage) in the food sector for cooks, servers, kitchen help, etc. But Senior Minister of State for Manpower Zaqy Mohamad is already warning that diners may have to pay more when eating out. This is nonsense. Such increase in costs to operators...
