KENNETH JEYARETNAM: The Reform Party Singapore is concerned by news* that the General Manager of Ang Mo Kio (AMK) Town Council, Mr. Victor Wong, has been under investigation by the CPIB for alleged corruption since September 2016.  The Reform Party contested Ang Mo Kio GRC in 2011 and 2015 which was defended both times by a PAP team containing our Prime Minister Mr Lee. We are given to understand...

AQIL ALID: After much persuasion from my wife… today after work, I accompanied both my wife and son to Eden School / Eden Centres for Adults / Eden Children’s Centres / AAS for Autism, in hopes to plead for a slot this year for Nabil in there. After meeting with the in charge for enrollment, to our disappointment we were told that the earliest most possible intake for Nabil is next year...

CLARA ONG: Please take note of nanny (Diah Jxxxxx) staying at Blk 446 Hougang Ave 8 #xx-xxxx. My Daughter had been hospitalised for 4 days after sending to her. Because she’s sick and super drowsy. Nanny claims that baby’s tired just not enough sleep. But Doctors told us baby’s behaving this way not due to not enough sleep. Today , police IO called me and told me that they will need...

GOH MENG SENG: It is NOT a RESPONSIBLE decision to put a person with KNOWN SERIOUS Health Problem up as a candidate for GE. Worse still, did not disclose or declare his serious health conditions during the GE. To have a known liver problem which needs liver transplant is a SERIOUS health issue and it may end up with a MP who may not be able to carry out his duty as MP effectively most of the time....

DEAR REDWIRE: My Indo maid used to have long hair that reached her lower back. She would spend a long time in the toilet bathing, and I counted sometimes 20 minutes and I think it’s because she needs more time to wash her hair. The other thing is because she gets weekly off day, she will doll up and put perfume and make her hair look very nice so I’m afraid that she may be up to some naught business...

OSMAN: The government has set a new standard by allowing the next Presidential Election to be reserved for Malay candidates only. So don’t you think it’s only right that this be extended to the General Election too? The present GRC system is supposed to ensure minority representation in parliament, and it is a commendable effort. But with the government’s new benchmark for racial representation,...

KEV: Came across this incident which I’d like to share with you, as an example of “solve on problem, create another” by the Pasir Ris-Punggol Town Council. Or so it seems, according to the sign-off. Apparently, in order to drain stagnant water from a HDB void deck, a crack has to be made in the floor, going by the logic of the officer who replied. I find that a very preposterous...

SHUYING: I want to bring to your attention this unofficial school ranking that’s on a website called Kiasu Parents. If you go and take a look, you’ll see how parents are sharing T-scores of top-scorers of their children’s schools. I believe this is with the aim of (1) hao lian (showing off) and (2) giving these schools some kind of unofficial ranking in terms of how good or lousy. The MOE has...

KOK FEI: Almost half of Britons voted to stay in the EU, but that wasn’t enough because a little more than 50 percent voted to leave. In the US, Donald Trump won the hard-fought contest to be president, even though Hillary Clinton won the popular vote. That’s democracy in action, where the minority group yields to the will of the majority. Several commentaries have been written here decrying...

KEV: This has got to be one of the most discriminatory advertisement I’ve ever seen. Shame on you, Livvit. To think that even startup companies now are discriminating against Singaporean men, on the basis of their national service duties. In case you didn’t know, no Singaporean male is EXEMPT from national service, unless you’re looking at a 10-year-old to join your company. All men in Singapore...

She said that the man tried to push away the pram which her child was in, but he later fled after she intervened. This incident was described in a letter sent to us yesterday. Describing...

Muhamad Riduan Mohamed Yassin: A friend of mine nearly got his son kidnapped! This actually happened at Bukit Panjang Plaza, NTUC Supermarket. The mum was busy choosing and picking items up, the son was sleeping in the NTUC trolley. Out of nowhere an Indian guy just appeared and pushed the trolley away from the mum. The mum shouted for help, but no one gave a f*ck about it but one of the security...

RYNNA ISMAIL: Dear parents, I’ve encountered a strange and worrying incident earlier which had made me wrote this and wanting to share the importance of our childrens’ safety, regardless of their age or locations, at all cost. Thursday, 10th November 2016 around 7.15pm, Simei, Eastpoint Mall at Level 3 (Kids’ Ride Area just opposite SportsLink store): Accompanied my girl to the mentioned...

CASANA: Two tree-falls in one day because of rain in different parts of Singapore. This happened yesterday morning after a heavy that started at about 5.30am. It raises questions as to whether the Environment Ministry is out and about doing its job to ensure the public is safe from old trees. In the morning, a huge tree that fell along the Ayer Rajah Expressway caused a chain collision between a car,...
