Words from the Opposition: Teo Soh Lung

Teo Soh Lung, stalwart of the Singapore Democratic Party chided opposition politicians for not providing enough support to “young protestors” in Singapore. In an impassioned post, she compared the support received to that of those in Malaysia and Hong Kong. This is her post in verbatim: “In Hong Kong, opposition parties actively support the young protesters, giving them encouragement, assistance and advice. They are by their side, assisting them and speaking up for them. They go on television in support of the protesters. Ms Emily Lau even took the trouble […]

8 tell-tale signs you’re an ATTENTION SEEKER!

  1. You delete a photo on Instagram if there are too few likes… Only to post it again, several hours, in hopes that more people will see it and like it. Because timing matters.   2. You follow people on social media… only to unfollow them immediately once they follow you back.     3. You are extremely good at changing the topic. To yourself. Your friends talking about the Ebola…aaaannndd….you start talking about that time you went holidaying there.     4. You have no volume control.  You’re […]

Confinement for Reservist NSmen if They Skip IPPT

Reservists also can tio confinement…better take your IPPT. Times are changing, no more are the days when reservists or NSmen are going to get it easy for skipping on the mandatory IPPT (Individual Physical Proficiency Test) and walk away with just a fine. This is the second time in a year that the IPPT has made it into the news, the first was for the change in the system which seems to benefit all NSmen and NSFs and regulars. As with good news, bad news always seems to follow. So […]

Is Progressive Wage the solution to Minimum Wage?

  We all know that minimum wage comes with its own set of problems – but it wouldn’t be right that a country doesn’t implement it. The difference between Progressive Wage Model (PWM), and the minimum wage, is the former’s ability to raise wages and improve the motivation of a worker. Here’s how:   1. Problem: Minimum wage could end up being the maximum wage If an employer could just pay $1000, why would he be paying any more than what he should? Solution: The Progressive Wage doesn’t negotiate on just […]

Comparing CPF with Malaysia’s EPF is the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard

Benchmarking CPF with Malaysia’s EPF is a bewildering suggestion.To start with, we don’t earn Malaysian wages.It all boils down to this: Ringgit – weak. Singapore dollar – strong. And why is the Singapore dollar strong? It is for the very same reason what #ReturnMyCPF and other GIC bashers are complaining about: powerful reserve investments and a strong economy. If this country were to take the exotic advice of being 100% transparent with our reserves, guess what? The Singapore dollar will be attacked like mad, the value will go down. You won’t be […]

A hacked line account tried to scam a fellow Singaporean, he delivered justice in a witty fashion You never know when you’re going to get scammed these days, but if you do you might want to take a page out of this guy’s book.

The scammer wanted pre-paid iTunes gift cards that amounted to $300 what he or she got in […]

NUS Device Goes up in Flames Along With NASA Rocket

After 10 months of research their efforts spent in a laboratory in the National University of Singapore to test if entangled light particles can be produced in space, it all came to a fiery conclusion. The device which is no bigger than a sandwich was created to produce a potentially safer method of sending encrypted data throughout the globe. The rocket carrying 2,300kg of cargo consisting of supplies, equipment and science experiments to the […]

How Living Abroad Taught Me To Stop Complaining

From Starbucks seat hoggers to fishball sticks, Singaporeans turn complaining into a national sport. Sabina-Leah Fernandez could’ve been a gold medallist, but now she’d probably get kicked out in the semi-finals. Here’s why:   Two years ago I decided I needed to leave Singapore. I was jaded and over it. No work-life balance. Too expensive. Censorship is stifling. Too many malls, not enough parks. Beaches are manufactured and have shipping containers in the distance. Nanny state that treats citizens like children. And why is it so friggin impossible to get […]

I think Singaporean women are…

  This question was posed to our writer: How would you describe the Singaporean woman? [25 marks] Here’s her answer: 1.) Ooozing of passion Singaporean women passionate? Sure or not? After all, aren’t we the country who has managed to come up with a whole new word for boredom and passiveness – sian. But think about it this way: have you never seen how passionate women in Singapore can be when it comes to a sale? Getting a seat on public transport? Chope-ing seats during lunch hour? Noooo, it’s not being […]
