Singapore media extracts.

Recently it was reported in the news that a phenomenon needs to be addressed, in the island City state.
It says that for those old folks (retirees) who are currently staying in BIG landed private property (which has market value of several million dollars!) should be given financial attention by the state! And their stupid reasoning? “Not enough cash to spend for retirement!!!”
Obviously this media report highly distorted the true picture of these group of “pretended idiots”, thinking that they are the underprivileged old people.
There’s only one fair solution for such asset rich old folks, that is to sell their “obscene high value” property and move to a lesser private home and cash out a few million dollars for their still extremely comfortable retirement golden ages…
The nation needs to take care of people and families really in need of financial support to cope with continued inflationary pressure and very high cost of living…
The above forum letter truly air-out what’s Commoners’ (social) Justice.
MacDonalds has created a real hot fever again in Singapore, after being quiet for many years.
But it works! The re-sales of limited edition Hello Kitty on the web is hot. This Black Skeleton Kitty especially.
Coffeeshop old folk says, “I dun understand this…”
A wiseman replies, “you dun have to understand. This is the real world.”

怪亊 – 是他们引起的，为何还狮子开大囗？！
BY: Pastor Joshua (sent from Canada )
Many Try Focusing But Still Fall Short of Their Goals. WHY?
I have friends who always ask me this question: “Why my kid tries so hard focusing on what he aims to achieve but still fails?”
So I asked this parent to illustrate the full story. What happen is, the father went through tough financial decision to sell the apartment house, gathered money to support the son’s entry into one of the expensive School of Art in the Lincoln District to study Vocal singing cum the International Baccalaureate. The main driving force was that his son was praised to be a high potential children’s choir member in church.
However the story turns out to be quite the opposite side of thing they had expected. After a few years, the son was transferred from Vocal training to cello, then to African drum, back to Vocal, and finally the school expressed that the young man truly lacking the required aptitude to be of any success in Vocal singing career. So, the son has to switch again to another graduating art subject – Drawing!
What adds to the problem is that the young man is also lacking academic faculty.
Pastor Joshua’s opinion;
THIS IS a typical case of failure to understand What Focusing Means?
Let me explain the core subject matter,
— to focus is to set aim on something in which you have much desire for;
— but focus alone does not mean anything if the process lacks Control.
— to control your Focusing effort you need a plan for when and how you spend your best resources and energy to create the required momentum at the critical (关键时刻) time/period;
— without such a synergistic coordination, it explains why many people wasted their resources and time Focusing very hard on their goals but still destined to fail.
If pastor Joshua were to face such predicament as above story, he would likely consider. channeling the young man to re-focus on Hymn Music, dedicate his talent to serve God in church choir and who knows, the young man can be a very successful church choir director.
It is also the case of people tend to underestimate God’s path and his plans… where God strengthens the whole synergy to derive at a blessed outcome.

It was not too long along reported in the Lion City State newspapers that a couple “accidentally ” snapped some aliens when they were taking photos along the Orchard Road… a shopping district.
The above contribution from one of our readers shows that Orchard Road is not the ONLY place you can “accidentally ” snap an Alien!
Normal non-tourists places such as Marine Parade could also find alien activities, STUPID!
