Dear Dr Teo,
I am Eugene Yeo, Chief Editor of socio-political blog Wayang Party Club.
I am writing to you express my concern over rumors circulating in cyberspace lately about Northwest CDC staff getting 8 months bonus including AWS in 2008.
Separately, a reader have written to us alleging that two of your staff receive 7 months of bonuses and 1 month of AWS last year. However he was unable to provide us with any substantial evidence when asked though he claimed that he had heard it from reliable sources within the CDC.
I have written to both of them seeking clarifications and have yet to receive a reply from them. I have also tried calling them to no avail.
The CDC staff are paid for by tax-payers’ monies. May I know what justify their 7 month bonuses (if the allegations were true) during such tough times when Singapore’s economy is mired in recession and is poised to contract between 5% and 8% this year ?

Despite the fact that this card can also be used as an EZ link card, the draw backs are that there is a transaction rate incurred of each top up done automatically. Which if you ask me, is absolutely ridiculous! If GIRO top ups can be done for free, why must we pay to use such a service?

Lindsey speaks wistfully of Westlake Secondary School, which will be "absorbed" by Guangyang Sec next year:
i love westlake to the core.
the school campus is nothing fanciful. no bronze statues like RGS, no nice green track and field of its own, paint's peeling off everywhere, the windows are so rusted that you can only semi-open them. not to mention, the toilets stink. alot.
but yet, there was a group of dedicated teachers.
