Cheng Zhan, our proud PSC Scholar said "somehow, the singaporean association here in my school has become an indian association. so gross. and somemore non-singaporean.
its just so repulsive...these ugly guys with dark skin n irksome features.
ya. i discovered i'm so racist. at the club (under lighting in which everyone is supposed to look good), i still find indians and filipinos (dark ones) so repulsive n such a turn-off.
anyway, so now we have this ugly mass as our president.
n his indian counterpart who isn't even singaporean is our senator.
what is the world coming to? why are indians dominating the singaporeans here?
all these mang ka-li....gross gross. don't come near me!"

Venessa said "A few years ago, e-filing was 'revolutionary'. However, with each passing year the online user base grows, and I really wonder if their server(s) can take the load now. For financial transactions particularly, it is very, very important that nothing crashes.
Surely something can be done. Millions more people visit Amazon.com. Why can their system cope so much better? It's not like the e-filing website displays lots of images of books, either. I can access my local bank accounts with less problems. If the private sector can do it for their customers, why can't IRAS?"

Adrian said "In 1997 it was reported that the remuneration of judges comprised salary, provision of a prestigious motor vehicle (a government-provided Mercedes Benz or similar luxury vehicle), government accommodation (or the payment of a housing allowance in lieu thereof), and other benefits which would include a thirteenth-month additional salary payment and performance bonuses of a minimum three months’ salary and a maximum nine months.
Based on these components, the total remuneration range for judges in 1998 was S$934,008–S$1,590,060 and for the Chief Justice, S$1,734,000–S$2,742,000."
