The Answer Is Not Known Until The Day of “CRUCIFIXION ” … And Moment of Truth
Coffeeshop old folks have debated this subject till (all) Cows Come Home and still without a clue.
Some say, “Hey he might be a prophet and therefore God has to apologize to him. Or else nobody dare to say such thing in public.”
Some rebuke, “Come on, look carefully and do you really think he’s a prophet? Do you know that there’s no such rich prophet in history of mankind! Staying at Sentosa luxurious condominium and why the hell a prophet’s wife spent lavishly and lived in Hollywood high-end estate using church fund?”
A wiseman says, “When is the alleged church fund scam to resume trial again?”

She made it to semi-final but her timing of 58:94 is way too slow to continue in the high standard arena (swimming pool).
Tao Li is competing at the World Swimming Championship in Barcelona.
2016 Olympic Games?
Some old folks dun think it is a right bet at all, not even miracle.
The republic needs to groom younger swimmers of greater potential. As the international standards have been raised much higher.

Singapore govt has come forward to stress its resolve in fighting corruption and upholding integrity in the public service at all level, on the 136,000-strong public service population.
Above: This measure could have been done since day one of casinos opening as in the case of Macau, where all civil servants are banned from visiting casino unless on official duties.
As reported, there’s no room for complacency as this was stressed by the Civil Service chief.
Above: information released by the authority.

This Is Rare & Very Serious Case As Viewed By The Authority
– A total of S$1.76m is involved!
– A govt senior officer gambled at casino! (We thought there’s regulation on prohibition of civil servants visiting casino?)
– How could the Bureau chief did not know such a huge sum been misappropriated and it’s system not raising red flag over a 3 to 4 years period?
We believe the truth will soon be unveiled because in Singapore corruption cases are dealt with swift action and transparency.

… “Sgt. Sean Murphy, who said Rolling Stone’s portrait of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (Boston bombing killer) glamorize ‘the face of terror’, releasing his own images showing him bloody and dishevelled, with a sniper’s riffle laser sight trained on him.”
The news magazine Rolling Stone needs dramatical shots on its cover for the issue to sell in larger volume, purely a commercial act.
While the police photographer Sgt. MURPHY speaks from his heart … and he has reason to feel angry.
In this context, how would one judges on its morality? And if the Rolling Stone cover ethical?

#1 – The Despicable Bloggers (Malaysia)
These people just go for fame but at the same time they are insensitive to the general feelings of public/society. Apparently the guy in red shirt was a Asean Scholar studied Law degree at the National University of Singapore. His scholarship was terminated last year after he had posted sexual blog-posts on the Internet.
#2 – The Preachers
These people preach good things all the time… but, the alleged case seems to show the opposite. Apparently this is the biggest church fund scam in the history of Lioncity, before and after its independence. The trial is still in progress.

The Scenario – A “SEA QE ” Coming
Judging from economic and financial perspective, it surely looks like these countries at the end of the road would have no choice but to try imitating the US Federal Reserves, opening the floodgate for their own Southeast Asian Quantitative Easing (SEA QE ).
On composite national strength, Korea may be easier to find their way out, with strong national enterprises and production.
Malaysia on the other hand has mining and commodity resources for exporting… but less fiscal control.
Surely the property developers would interpret the report with a very different story. They are the optimists, kept encouraging the market to go for it, with seemingly low interest rate. The banks will be more cautious now, property market control measures will help to lessen their credit risk. But when push comes to shave, banks will up the interest rate.
It’s like navigating a ship in the big open sea… without observing what’s coming from the horizon is definitely a grave mistake, for individual households. And a perfect storm seems to be building up….
