NG BOON GAY ORAL SEX ALLEGATION: Singapore Media getting too open

As the case involving CNB's ex-chief Ng Boon Gay and Cecilia Sue entered into its 4th day of legal proceedings, I think by now Singaporeans will learn of the very graphic, very explicit intricacies of the alleged misdeeds, chief of which centres around how Cecilia Sue described the alleged acts of Ng towards her.

Mooncakes: I like them original

As Mooncake Festival will be here in just two days' time, shopping centres are abuzz with stalls selling mooncakes and people patronizing these stalls to buy mooncakes for themselves, friends and relatives.

Having a Breath of Fresh Air

I went jogging this evening. I have not jogged for few months. I have not passed my IPPT. But passing IPPT is not the main goal why I took time off after work to jog. I need to maintain a healthy physique and I need doses of fresh air to invigorate my body. I need fresh air to clear my mind cluttered with career woes.

Ng Boon Gay & Cecilia Sue

Singaporeans continued to learn of the very explicit details of what Cecilia Sue said in court regarding Ng Boon Gay's deeds.

As the case is now before the court, I should not comment too much on the case.

Fell Prey to Non-Positive Thoughts

Yesterday, I fell prey to non-positive thoughts. I tried hard not to be non-positive as my job is really not doing well. In work, I am positive, hardworking but due to a confluence of factors most of which stem from Poor Management and Office Politics, it is really very disappointing to me, an employee who gives his Best every day, only to be sidelined by those who lick the boots to make up for their incompetence at work.

Carrefour Singapore Hypermarket: Adieu

Last weekends, my family and I visited Carrefour Singapore outlet at Suntec City. At this time of writing, I believe everyone in Singapore knows the fate of this French Hypermarket as it will bade Adieu to Singapore in a few weeks’ time.


Singapore Short Stories: New Direction

I am taking a review of this blog and will be making some changes to the editorial content of the blog.

I have started this blog many years back, all the way in 2007 to document some of the good experiences of events, places and encounters of living in Singapore and hence looking back at the posts of the recent few years, I believe there is a need to have a total review of this blog so as to achieve its objective.

Is MPH relocating out of Singapore after Borders Bookstore?

MPH will be having its clearance sales yet again at the Expo tomorrow. This is the sales that follows right after a similar MPH clearance sales in August, just last month. I wonder whether MPH is relocating out of Singapore too, like Borders Bookstore?

Only we can help ourselves

It is very important to have Positive thoughts and weed out Negative thinking. This is easier said than done but ultimately we should not let others or events affect our state of thinking or mind. If others are able to do that to us, we are weaker than them as we are influenced by their actions.

My constituency is Patriotic to Singapore

I would like to nominate my constituency for the most Patriotic ward in Singapore. Why is this so? Well, it has to do with the fact that despite the fact that it has been more than one month after the National Day, my ward is still decked in the National Day adornments and banners.

Mediacorp should not keep showing Fast and Furious or any street racing movies

MediaCorp, has recently shown on Channel 5, street-racing themed movies like "Fast and Furious" and its sequels. I think it has to do with the F1 races coming to our shores very soon!

Prince William and Kate photos

Prince William and Kate half-naked photos were published in a French magazine. As I surfed to understand more about the news, I came across a website which published all the photos taken of the Prince and his wife while they were holidaying in France.

Man fined only $10,000 for molesting 3 SIA stewardess!

A foreign man was only fined and for only $10,000 for molesting 3 SIA stewardess in a SIA flight. I really think that this sentence is light considering that perpetuators of molest get a jail term in some instances. And we are now talking about the molestor molesting a higher QUANTITY (3 and not 1) and higher QUALITY (SIA air stewardess are known to be above average in looks, in general of course) in a single situation. Why is there only a $10,000 fine? I am not sure whether this case will spark off a debate in cyberspace similar to the Woffles Wu’s incident.

Daily Reflections

I bought a book about Success from the recent MPH expo sales at a mere $7! I feel so inspired by the teachings of the book that I will be planning to walk the talk by designing a daily log to aid me in my daily reflections of my every day; things like “What is something I feel satisfied about?” or “What are the things today that I can improve?”

MOE abolishes secondary school banding system and cuts awards

As is reported, MOE will abolish the secondary school banding system which categorizes secondary schools into 9 different bands. The rationale of doing it is, I quote; to ensure that every school is a good school and reduce the administrative overheads.

Prince William and Duchess of Cambridge Kate arrived in Singapore

Prince William and Duchess of Cambridge Kate arrived in Singapore this afternoon! The royalty visited the Botanic Gardens and paid visits to Singapore's leaders. The British Royal couple is the second to visit Singapore this year after the Bhutan's Royal couple.

I read that some Singaporeans take leave today for a look at the Royal couple in Singapore.

Our Singapore Conversation

The idea of a Singapore Conversation has noble aims, that is to engage Singaporeans fully but actually, frankly speaking, I think the conversation may be one-sided if all those who are invited to take part in the conversation hail from the usual PAP grassroots bodies like the CCCs and RCs.

Our Singapore Conversation, an initiative helmed by Education Minister Heng Swee Keat finally announced its committee members yesterday and proceeds to do what it intents to do: engage Singaporeans on what they want for Singapore via a slew of platforms like a website, Facebook Page and more.

Know and Don’t Know

I am not sure whether I coin the following phrases or I read them somewhere:

Know what you know
Know what you don’t know
Don’t know what you know
Don’t know what you don’t know

Pandas Jia Jia & Kai Kai

Pandas Jia Jia and Kai Kai will be arriving in Singapore tomorrow morning. These pandas will be cute, however the millions of dollars used for the construction of their habitat and upkeep could be channelled to help the lower rungs of the society.

Local Chinese Drama and Movie inciting teen violence?

Currently, there is a local serial drama showing on Channel 8 about teens and school life produced by Mediacorp. Also, a movie production house affiliated to Mediacorp has also in running, a movie on teens and violence. I feel that the movie and drama of such theme will only incite violence among impressionable teens.

Singapore National Games

Singapore National Games have commenced from 1 Sep 12 and last 9 days. While the games are really an exciting concept to engage Singaporeans in games and build bonds, I believe the event is really under-publicised.

Overhead MRT stations: an Engineering oversight?

Recently, it seems to me that MRT trains are getting noiser as they enter or exit overhead MRT train platforms. Overhead MRT train platforms were among the first batch of MRT train platforms constructed; subsequently new train stations like the Thomson MRT line are all hidden underground.

Framework needed for neighbouring conduct

Law Minister proposed that a framework for neighbouring conduct should be instituted. His comments came a week after PM's National Day Rally in which PM spoke that Singaporeans seemed to be "getting less tolerant, less willing to compromise in order to get along".
