Following in the steps of the stepson of Punggol, Dr Koh Poh Koon, who was ridiculed on social media after he uploaded a photo of himself helping an elderly woman carry 32KG of recyclable materials, Minister for Social and Family Development appears to have followed in Dr Koh's footsteps. The minister was shown on a Straits Times uploaded video distributing food to rental unit residents living Marine Parade GRC. One video even showed Mr Tan getting rid of a dirty, bed bug infested…

Dear A.S.S. Editor I read with amusement an article on the TODAY newspaper, writing about how Singapore should have a code of ethics for pedestrians walking on footpaths and on park connectors. Article writer basically indicated that since cyclists and personal mobility device users would soon be subjected to rules on the proper usage of roads and paths, pedestrians should not be spared also. He was ashamed at how some of us walk on footpaths and park connectors with disregard for our own…

Dear A.S.S. Editor Harvard professor said that giving extra maternity and childcare leave to women would never help in raising fertility rates, but instead leads to reinforcing the “gendered division of labour” in the household, where women stay at home to do housework and take care of the children while men work. This will also leads to employers bias against hiring women, especially mothers. No need for the professor to come out and say this. For one thing, to increase fertility rate in …

I would like to feedback on the increasing bad situation on the transport, Bus 88, to the nearest MRT, i.e. AMK MRT, during rush hour. Due to huge crowd requiring to get onto this bus service—the few buses in my area: Buangkok Crescent, Buangkok Green and Hougang St 91, that can get to AMK MRT, there are many instances where the residents around my area cannot get onto the buses. Sometimes, we cannot alight onto four buses consecutively! This is seriously affecting our productivity. Thus I …

A reader shared this post with us. Dear Sir / Mdm, The oversight of my profession is long overdue. A profession shrouded in mystery, a gross understatement. While many of my counterparts perform their duties to the highest of standards, anecdotal evidence abounds of others who prey on the grieving to inflate fees. It puts many of our good work to shame. An emotional purchase, families are wont not to compare and negotiate prices. Funeral offerings come in [price] packages, with prices…

Dear A.S.S. Editor Did not take Malaysia authorities that long to react to Singapore's government announcement of foreign vehicles having to pay to enter Singapore. Our government recently announced that vehicles entering via the two causeways will have to pay $6.50, on top of the $35 VEP charge from 17 February onwards, a move they said to match Malaysia's own introduction of VEP charges. But Malaysia had said that it is now their turn to review the charges, as Singapore are…
