Median Income

"The median monthly income from work (including employer CPF contributions) of full-time employed residents rose by 7.1% over the year to $3,480 in 2012."

Life is becoming better for most Singaporeans. How about those who are earning way below this median level? They are struggling everyday.

SMRT Bus Drivers

SMRT bus drivers who are Malaysians are paid $200 monthly more than those who are from China. Is this fair?

Latest Announcement on SMRT

Have you heard the latest public announcements on the SMRT trains? How do you like them? Too noisy? So repetitive? Do they need to use both English and Mandarin to announce everything twice just before reaching each station? Is it necessary to announce another information in between two stations in English and Mandarin?

Why aren't Malay and Indian languages used in the announcements as well? After all, we should promote multiracial in the country.

‎"I am a sincere believer that people come into our lives for a reason. Sometimes, it’s because we need a shoulder. Sometimes, it’s because we need someone who understands us. Sometimes, it’s simply to feel: to be angry, to be in love, to be inspired. Throughout our lives we want different things, we need different things. I’m often amazed at how people enter our lives accordingly. This also applies to those we have been a relationship with. When you are in a relationship with someone, you share yourself. You open up and give them a little piece of you. They were meant to have that piece, as you were meant to accept a piece of them. A lot of times, problems arise and two people don’t end up working out. A lot of times, the two don’t communicate anymore. I believe that when we end a relationship with someone, we can never be as close to them as we were before. Part of you is broken. Part of them is broken. And that’s okay, because they were there for the parts of your life that they needed to be. Sometimes we get lucky enough to find a friendship in someone that we’ve loved but that’s rare. When hearts feel so strongly and so deeply, it’s hard to say, “Dear heart, change now. Feel less.” In the end, that little piece that you gave to them was never returned, it’s kept safe, just like you keep the piece they gave you safe. And you don’t need to call each other everyday or talk like your best friends. Because when we lose someone, there is always a part of them that we’ll get to keep. Love never leaves. Nor does it die. Love has an appropriate time & place. And sometimes love needs to be tucked away, and simply remembered." ~ Liang Yu

There is another increase in the ERP rates. The maximum rate is $5 now. $5 just to pass under the ERP gantry during the peak hours. This is unbelievable!

Is ERP effective to control the flow of traffic into the city then? It needs a major overhaul. The jams are still there along the major expressway.

She had wanted to meet me for a long time. Just couldn't arrange for a suitable time. Finally, we managed to settle on the time and venue. Guess what? She was late by half an hour! 30 minutes! OMG! There are so many direct bus services from her home to the mall. It is only a 10 minutes ride away. Her excuse was she waited for the bus. Oh please!

I value punctuality very much!

Good Bye

"It's sad how most people nowadays do not treasure and value relationships as much. 
Having witnessing so many people around ending their years of relationship makes me wonder if love is really that fragile? Are those memories spent together so easily thrown away and forgotten?
Never say goodbye when you still want to try. Never give up when you feel you can still take it. Never say you don't love that person anymore when you can't let go. Goodbyes make you think. They make you realise what you've had, what you've lost and what you've taken for granted. They make you realised that sometimes, there are no next times, no time outs and no second chances. And above all, saying goodbye is the most painful way of solving a problem.

That said, well.. People change and things go wrong. Shit happens but life still goes on.

So show the person you love that you love them, everyday. So you won't have any regrets in your life because we can never ever take back moments in our lives once it passed." ~ Shenny Yang

Why help then?

It's better to respect them by not gossiping about them behind their backs. If she's not happy with them, then don't help them. No point helping them, then complain about this and that. The children are also human beings who are gifted in other areas. Not everyone is academically inclined. Just be grateful and thankful with each other's unique talents. Mutual respect and acceptance are very important.

This is just my humble opinion.

PSLE results will be released at noon today. MOE has decided not to publish the names of the top scorers. Is this wise? Recognition must be given when due.

COE for the small cars and goods vehicles had reached a record high. This is too appalling. Why must the luxury cars with small engine capacity compete with the economical cars? How will the small companies survive when the goods vehicles cost so much now?

This COE scheme needs a major review!

Ng Boon Gay

His wife is slim. His mistress is curvaceous. Doesn't this conclude that men prefer vivacious and curvaceous women? Why are females still obsessed with a slimmer figure then?
