St Margaret’s Secondary School Principal: covering her ass over punishment of bald students?

August 5, 2013

I’m not in the least surprised by the disciplinary action taken by the principal of St Margaret Secondary School against her students for their bald-headed exposure in school after participating in a fund-raising event when they shaved their heads bald. Her over the top reaction typifies the mindset of civil servants who slavishly adhere to […]

Singapore Kindness Movement mascot Singa quits: regime leaders fail big time in kindness

May 28, 2013

After 30 years, Singa has quit. Singa is the lion mascot for the Singapore Kindness Movement. Apparently Singa quit over the failure of the movement to make a significant impact on society. Singa need not have been disheartened. Kindness does prevail at many levels of our society: among family members, friends, colleagues, in the community […]

Sticker Lady: what’s happened to her Part 2

January 16, 2013

When Sticker Lady went around exhibiting her unique stickers in public places, the authorities got all worked up. The mainstream media lost no time in declaring her “arrested”, “nabbed” as if she was on the 10 most wanted criminal list. Foreign media gleefully picked up the story, no doubt amused by the farce. But in […]

Sticker Lady: what’s happened to her?

January 14, 2013

Where in the world is Sticker Lady? Hope she’s not languishing in jail. The last the public heard was that she was arrested by the police for plastering her stickers in public places. Didnt she realize Singapore is a squeaky clean place and the law is the law and no one is above the law […]

Cycling in Singapore: bicycle lanes urgently needed NOW

November 7, 2012

Those who hanker after their own four wheels will be dismayed by the latest news that there will be fewer COEs for passenger cars next year. With cars costing a king’s ransom it’s no longer within the reach of the masses. In contrast in Malaysia even the nasi lemak hawker can buy a used car […]

Grace Fu lecturing Singaporeans over new immigrants

August 14, 2012

I read with disbelief that Grace Fu is lecturing Singaporeans on the need to integrate with foreigners, particularly those the regime minted as new citizens in a desperate attempt to hang on to power in the face of widespread public dissatisfaction. Wasn’t she the one who made the preposterous claim that the social media was […]

National Day Singapore: Singapore no longer really home

August 8, 2012

The regime, through its mouthpiece main stream media, has in recent days been trying to whip up interest in National Day. However, in imitation of the repressive regime, Singaporeans have also mastered the art of being deaf. This year in particular is markedly bad as far as response to National Day is concerned. Few want […]

Why there are fault lines between new citizens and native Singaporeans

August 2, 2012

PM Lee, our quiet PM, quiet in contrast to prime ministers like David Cameron the British Prime Minister, has called on new citizens to integrate in their adopted country. Prompted perhaps by criticism of foreigners who bring with them their social norms and habits and their refusal at integration, PM Lee has a new message […]

Sleeping all along: PM Lee now urges new citizens to be part of Singapore community

July 8, 2012

PM Lee, in whom many Singaporeans have lost confidence in his quiet leadership, has roused himself to urge new citizens to be part of the Singapore community. Shouldn’t this include PRs and other foreigners who have been residing here for years? While the regime has been busy with other things on the national agenda, foreigners […]

Sticker Lady is vandalism? Talk Cock Only

June 9, 2012

I don’t know what went through the Sticker Lady’s mind as she went about determinedly spreading her sticker messages. Probably it was This is great fun and if caught so what? And with widespread police surveillance cameras it was only a matter of time. Reading some of her sticker messages certainly made me laugh, and […]
