pic of the day
barthez doing his 2-hands-up flop-dancing, improving on the one-hand-up version he showed against west ham last season.

satisifying 1-0 win over mansexual...
well done! for once, ian harte justified him being on the pitch... crossed the ball with his right foot & clearing the ball off the line...
phil neville + luke chadwick will definitely affect jersey sales.... put them through operations! quick!

health bomb
another price hike. the "good news"?
Mr Lim assured Class-C patients that they can use Medisave to pay for almost the entire fee increase, while B2 patients may have to fork out just $20 more in cash.

of cos, just in case everyone forgets, my MEDISAVE is MY monies too...

KK Women's and Children's Hospital, for example, lost $10 million last year and expects $7 million loss even with this fee increase.

so why did they move into a spanking new building a few years ago? so we can pay more? the system is screwed, change the system, public health care is for our benefit, not an extra burden to us. if you can't survive, change. that's what the private sector is doing anyway.
this "slight increase, so that we don't need to increase more later" story is growing old and tired.

reformasi friday!
interesting suggestions from erc; personally, i'm still waiting for them to free up MY monies.
in summary:
1) let the rich-enuff dudes, do the entrepreneurship thingy. since most entrepreneurs fail anyway.

2) govt is not doing another su-zhou. all the other 1,348 cities waiting the next great singapore payout can scrap their plans now.
The panel also reiterated the government's stance on encouraging state-linked companies to expand overseas in their core businesses, but it also said the government "no longer needs to take a hands-on approach by involving itself in business."

of course quote of the day
"Businessmen have expressed concern that over the years, the number of GLCs has grown to cover many industries, encroaching into private sector space," the report stated. "The government should be involved in business only where it achieves its strategic objectives. The recommendations endorsed an earlier proposal for Singapore to enact a competition law that prohibits cartel activities and abuse of dominance by significant market players, which would help ensure that GLCs compete on a level playing field with private enterprises."

sad to say, no mention of my "fav", somehow... it just manages to fly under the radar.... "if it's cheap, it must be good" barf! maybe it doesn't fall into GLC category, since most of the GLCs do operate under minor competitive conditions...

for those of u interested in actual news...than my views....

but what are u doing here anyway?

complaint of the week as inspired by letters in s.t.r.e.a.t.s
the merlion is setting a bad example for our younger generation. the constant, endless spitting of water, i've seen kids pretending to be merlion on the streets, spitting out our good, safe and tasty newater. i hereby propose, we make a slight modification to our national symbol: make the big white beast, hold a bottle of newater and give a big "thumbs-up"...... just add 2 hands.
