After has been several occassions, and it even become public secrets, that Permanent Residents, Foreigners in Singapore have been treated as ‘milk-ing cow’ for their own economy growth, with any single cents given back to them… as in this article:

Still Singapore government ministry without any hesitation claims that Singaporeans, their own citizen, will come first in any growth and occassions and possibilities, as in this article below:

What about those new comer Citizens who have converted sacrificing their own nature birth citizenship to be Singaporeans, will these flocks of people be considered as citizen and enjoy all what they keep saying as ‘benefit growth dividends’ or whatever terms they keep saying it as, or perhaps these flocks of foreign-born Singaporeans will not enjoy anything on what nature-born Singaporeans from their government?

Government still claims as they need in-flock immigrants into Singapore to grow their economy, to be Permanent Resident to supply CPF to their pool of monies, and to pay taxes to for their salary, their growth dividends, and their all Maternity and Parenthood Packages or whatever they call it will be on next year, and have their boys to be sent to NSmen with a single hope to stay alive in the ‘training’ – without any guarantee that any government-related ministry will be responsible in case any mishap happens.

FYI: West Malaysian people who become Singapore Permanent Resident will permanently be loosing their CPF money, without being able to withdraw back their money even in the case they surrender their PR status. On contrary, other country-born Singapore Permanent Resident will still have a chance to withdraw their CPF money out in the case they surrender their PR status, but with a single thing in mind, this type of person will never be able to get back the Singapore PR status in any time.

So you decide.

What a waste of lifes, two sons died during NSmen training, and again there is NONE of government related ministry is responsible on them, as there is no foul-play or security breach found.

They are died due to Chronic Lung-related Pneumonia, and heat stroke on each of them respectively.

Another COVER-UP ??? Nobody would ever know. Just make sure, second opinion of autopsy will be good to be done, by an independent doctor from overseas!

Impressive, the debate continues all the way on where the foreign workers should be housed, their lodging btw, and now they proposed to be housed OFF-SHORE in a nearby island and even in a floating lodging proposal.

It is proposed, and we’ll see whether it will get approved, and there we go to have our Singapore’s very owned Alcatraz for Foreign Workers lodging.

Here in Singapore, when Govt is aggressively campaigning the pro-family works-life balance environment, Singaporean women are still living in great worry…

They will never be a happily working mother whenever they get pregnant that they will be in this kind of works agony.

This is a country called Singapore.

It is indeed a very very hillarious funny story on how Singapore Electricity Tariff is increase, as the reason of World Oil Price, and it is even more hillarious that the electricity generator in Singapore are mostly powered by NATURAL GAS instead of OIL!

Read the above News Comment from Editor-at-Large who has just won the award on Editors “domain-world”, Mr. Conrad Raj, in his several contradictory-paragraphs above, you may find how hillarious Electricity Tariff in Singapore is. Here are some quoted paragraphs:

But as the new fuel prices was 38 percent higher then the previous quarter’s, SP (Singapore Power) was trying to tell us that it was passing on the entire increase in cost of the fuel oil.

Ironically! (the article said as what more egregious) was that the increase came at the time when a price of oil – on which the tariffs are based despite the fact that 80 percents of the electricity produced here comes from natural gas – was on its way down.

On the other paragraphs, the article stated that on the year end March 31 this year, Singapore Power’s revenue S$ 1.09 billions of S$ 5.45 billions, what more impressive is that, the company has been racking more then a billions dollars in net profit a year. Hilarious!

While Tuas Power which supply 25% of electricity consumed in Singapore, reported S$ 331 millions revenues of S$ 2.27 billions in year end March 31 this year also.

While for Senoko, country’s largest power supplier of 30% electricity in Singapore, posted revenues of S$ 2.49 billions, and their net revenues of S$ 130 millions in this year end of March.

And for Power Seraya’s another electricity contributor for consumption in Singapore, posted net profits of S$218 millions of this year March.

We’ll see what will happen in the next quarter, in the midst of oil pricing is going down, and whether we will get a good deal price or we will hear another answer of reason on why price is increase and another words whispering ‘we must save our electricity usage at home’ again…. you decide!

Here are the two most recent articles about Scams that are happening in Singapore, the place where most people think as a safe place as the law is stand straight and claimed as “nobody is above the law” in Singapore.

This is what is in last Friday article:

As you may have read in the second article above, the victims are mostly FOREIGN WORKERS (PRs to be – what I can mostly they are PR candidate when they found Singapore is interesting)… Foreign workers who are always be in the lost when any complaint, or always become a victim of situation, taken for granted…

While in real-life these FOREIGN WORKERS are the one contributing to all what they are PAYING as what they known as ‘Growth Dividend’ – monies which PR will never enjoy to receive out from what they are paying much more expensive then the money that their citizen contribute.

This is what PR (Permanent Resident) has been boiled, grilled and treated in Singapore… and this is the maximum that PR can do to voice out their protest…

PR is paying the taxes with much higher price-tag then local Singaporean citizens, as they have their other tax benefits and parenthood packages, much lower maid levy and so on the list is continue to grow….

PR is paying the same amount of CPF deductible fee from their salary every month to contribute to the Singapore Economy growth, and to pay for their own Citizen ‘Growth Dividends’, ‘SRS’ Shares, ‘ERS’ Shares, and so on the term they used to call it, is getting nicer sweeter, and politer but if you see all these terms are all still refer to one thing which they claimed ‘There is NO money politics in Singapore’.

PR still have to pay much higher and higher and higher school fees, child-care, health-care at the Polyclinics, Singapore Government General Hospitals, as their subsidies is getting lower and lower to PR, due to their Citizen claims that PR does NOT deserve the subsidies, PR only to contribute, BUT never receive anything in return.

If the GOVERNMENT does NOT to hand out freebies to PRs, tighten the requirement to become a PRs (as the last sentence in that article stated)… or they are taking advantage of what the society is complaining like those subsidies and so on, or perhaps there is NO complaint at all and create such a story with complaints… Will they have ever think to tighten the requirement and regulation to become a PR in Singapore, and sacrifice all the benefits that a PR can contribute to Singapore? Time will prove it someday…

What would have happened to Singapore if all PR surrender their PR-ship status and grab all their CPR monies out of Singapore with them, and leave out Singapore?

So now with all the above giving, charges, fees, no subsidies, higher payment contribution, and NOTHING receives back as ‘Growth Dividend’ back to PR, who actually OWNS this country red-dot called Singapore then? You answer – discretely off course!
