  1. JOHOR BARU: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak has announced that the Government has decided to implement the Vehicle Entry Permit fee for all foreign vehicles entering Johor. Najib said that the decision was made following a request made by the state. "I have discussed the matter with Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and have also informed Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk Seri Wahid Omar of our decision. "I have instructed him to inform the Road Transport Department (JPJ) so they can work out the details before the VEP is implemented," he said during a buka puasa event organised by the state Wednesday. "We will make an announcement later on the date of implementation and the rates for the VEP," he said. Najib also assured that a portion of the collection would be channelled to the state Government.
  2. Time and time again MCF members keep on comparing the prices, specs and features of the cars sold in Singapore to other countries. They lament that they have been short changed by the ADs. Local cars lack this and that when we are paying so much more. Do understand that Singapore has a unique tax structure for the cars it imports. The democratic system is also unique. So stop comparing and be happy.

  4. Summit haven started already so happening! TWO SOUTH KOREAN MEDIA PERSONNEL ARRESTED FOR CRIMINAL TRESPASS On 7 June 2018 at about 3.50pm, the Police received a report of a case of criminal trespass into the residence of the Ambassador of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. Two South Korean men, aged 42 and 45, who were representing the Korean Broadcasting System News, were arrested in relation to the case. One 31-year-old South Korean man, who was representing the Korean Broadcasting System News, is under investigations. Another 29-year-old South Korean man, who was the guide and interpreter for the group, is also under investigations.

Anyone convicted of criminal trespass under Section 447 of the Penal Code, Chapter 224, may be punished with imprisonment of up to three months, or a fine of up to $1,500, or both.

    Cost of a Divorce in Spore

    How much can a wife expect to receive when her marriage breaks down? Typically, a divorced tai-tai will claim monthly maintenance between $15,000 to $30,000 from their high net-worth husbands, according to a Straits Times report. Middle-class divorcees generally do not claim more than $10,000. A maintenance order may be made before, during and after divorce proceedings, where the Court may either order the husband to give a monthly allowance, or a lump sum payment as maintenance. The court will typically consider the following circumstances when making the Order: - The family's financial needs - The wife's earning capacity and other financial resources - The wife's physical or mental disability, and - The standard of living enjoyed by the family before the husband neglected or refused to provide maintenance (Above information sourced from You & The Law 3) What expenses can an ex-spouse's monthly maintenance be used to cover? These can include: - Maintenance of property, - Groceries, - Domestic help, - Personal grooming - Shopping, - Holidays - Meals For tai-tais, their big-ticket items could be - First class air tickets costing $20,000 and more - Holidays that can include trips to Europe, - Stays in luxury hotels - Regular shopping sprees at high-end boutiques that can come up to $5,000 or more each month - Rental and loan payments on their homes - Beauty treatments such as manicures and pedicures - Visits to hair salons, all of which can cost up to $3,000 - Fine dining at restaurants every month which may set them back about $3,000 - Monthly maintenance covers the ex-wife's personal spending and is separate from maintenance of the couple's children from the marriage. It also does not cover insurance and maintenance parents. The following information has been sourced from You & The Law 3: Division of Matrimonial Assets The Court can order a division of assets or a sale of assets and divide the proceeds which it thinks is just and equitable upon a divorce Matrimonial assets should be acquired during the marrige, and is used or enjoyed by both parties or one or more children. It can also refer to assets acquired before the marriage but substantially improved by one or both spouses. Among other things, the Court can also transfer the assets from one spouse to the other, postpone the transfer or sale of the asset until the youngest child reaches independence, grant one spouse the right to live in a matrimonial home to the exclusion of the other, and order one party to pay the other. Applying for an injunction If a spouse disposes of properties with the intention of reducing his or her means to pay maintenance, or to deprive the other party of his/her right to the properties, the aggrieved party may apply for a Court injunction to prevent the disposal from taking place or to set aside the disposal within three years that the disposal was made. The application for an injunction can be made when any matrimonial proceedings are pending, an order is made for the matrimonial assets to be divided, a maintenance order for the wife or child has been granted, and when maintenance is payable.

  13. The civil service. An institution in Singapore that runs along like clockwork, holding the fort and sorting out the papers in the backend, so that everyone else can live their lives as if hunky dory. But did you know that there really is a third-class honours graduate who sucked at project work and has been promoted twice within four years in the service? Here are 17 civil servants that really exist: 1. The one who claims all the credit all the time The civil servant who will say that he/she contributed to every initiative no matter how small his/her contribution – like printing out some meeting minutes. 2. The one who claims credit but really didn’t do anything You know those that do nothing for the entire project but claims credit just because they are in the email CC list? Complete that with a pompous look. 3. The Legolas That one civil servant who is an arrow-shooting extraordinaire. Once he/she sets his/her eye on you, you’re going to get arrowed work. 4. Faculty of Arts and Social Science civil servant They perpetuated the stereotype that people who go into FASS is because it’s a dumping ground. And then they went into the civil service. And continue to perpetuate that same stereotype. 5. The reluctant civil servant Maybe they didn’t get into the top consultancy firms. Or didn’t want to do sales in banks. And it was too competitive to get into some MNCs. The civil service offered a well-paid alternative. 6. The in-and-out-in-again civil servant You know those that quit the service to try something new outside in the private sector and then get enough experience to jump a grade or two when they return to the service. Actually they couldn’t fit into the private sector and got ostracised by everyone. 7. The overachiever You know those scholars or high-flyers earmarked for great things? Yeah, they come in to the service fresh out of school and given positions, such as managers and assistant directors, from the get-go. And they go into cruising altitude of 30,000 feet, bye bye minions. Then again, there are many of them who are genuinely smart and hardworking talents. Some of them are even good-looking to boot. Just to rub it in that life isn’t fair. 8. The idealist So many young men and women enter the civil service wanting to ‘help people’. So much truth contained in a GIF. 9. The idealist-turned-cynic The idealist who wants to help people will be stopped usually by two things: red tape and the unappreciative and overbearing members of the public. And the paperwork. 10. The politician wannabes Nothing pleases these people more than hanging around the politicians in the office. Never mind that their performance is not graded by the politicians but by their civil servant bosses. And their wet dream is to be parachuted into a GRC. 11. The Taiji Master The mortal enemy of the Legolas. The Taiji master fears no arrows. Their colleagues on the other hand… 12. The ball carrier If you’re in a division/ department full of ball carriers, good luck. 13. The Government Instruction Manual Partisan (G.I.M.P) or Protect-my-own-rice-bowl civil servant If it’s not written in the Government I.M. it can’t be done. If boss never asks, don’t need to do. If never do, boss don’t need to know. 14. The perpetual telecommuter because husband sick, son sick, pet sick, potato etc. How can someone work from home most of the time and only report to work twice a month is beyond me. But yes, it happens. 15. The I-hate-my-job-but-too-comfortable-to-quit If you work in the civil service, you automatically earn more than half your peers because that’s where the median pay scale is set. And you can’t really get fired, unless you kicked someone in the face. Or you get Brompton Biked. And here’s the thing: Plenty of civil servants stay on in their job because they can’t get paid the same elsewhere. 16. The Minions These are the unsung heroes, the rank-and-file civil servants that make sure everything’s working 24/7 even with the shenanigans of the other types of civil servants. If they meet a good boss, their efforts are appreciated and they get promoted. Otherwise, they become easy prey for the likes of ball carriers and taiji masters to leapfrog when promotion or performance bonus appraisals are carried out. When good minions work long enough they eventually become… 17. The Zen Master These guys are above the office politics. Red tape? No problem. They are in the system long enough to know their stuff well and can get through all the bulls**t and drama to get things done.
  14. Here we go again... S'pore water deal to be reviewed Sim Bak Heng New Straits Times Monday, Feb 17, 2014 JOHOR BARU - For the first time in 53 years, the raw water agreement between Johor and its neighbour across the Causeway, Singapore, is set to undergo a review. The Attorney-General's Chambers has given the Johor government the green light to reassess the rate charged for the raw water it supplies to Singapore, which has been in place since 1961. Following the move, Johor is expected to raise the rate sometime this year. It will also embark on a "zero water dependency" programme so that it would no longer need to purchase treated water from Singapore in the future. Although the rate has yet to be announced, it is believed that the state will stick to the rate proposed during the tenure of former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, which was 60 sen per 1,000 gallons of raw water. Currently, under the terms of the Malaysia-Singapore Agreement in 1961 and 1962, Singapore's Public Utilities Board (PUB) purchases raw water from Johor at 3 sen per 1,000 gallons (4,546.09 litres) and sells the treated water at 50 sen per 1,000 gallons to Johor. Johor sells 250 million litres of raw water to Singapore daily, and buys two per cent of the total back from them in the form of treated water, equivalent to five million litres daily. State Public Works, Rural and Regional Development Committee chairman Datuk Hasni Mohammad said the state executive council had discussed and raised the matter with the Federal Government last August. Since then, the Attorney-General's Chambers has been studying the legal aspects of the raw water agreement inked between the two countries more than five decades ago. "Early last month, we received a favourable reply from the A-G's Chambers, with regards to the legal aspects of the revised rates," he said. Photo Gallery: From seawater to drinking water Click on thumbnail to view photos. Source: PUB, HyFlUx, The New Paper "The A-G's Chambers met a Johor legal advisory team in Kuala Lumpur in early January and told them that we have the right to review the rate. With the green light, it is just a matter of time before we come up with the new rate." Hasni said the state government was anticipating that when the rate of raw water rate is increased to 60 sen per 1,000 gallons, Singapore would also hike the rate of treated water sold to Johor. In view of this, he said Johor would launch a "zero water dependency" programme by June this year. Under the programme, the state government will lay more pipes and improve the capacity of water treatment plants. "We hope to accomplish the programme within a year, which is by June next year. Once we have accomplished the programme, Johor will be self-sufficient and does not have to buy treated water from Singapore," said Hasni. He said raising the price of raw water was long overdue and Malaysia had been doing a social service by selling raw water to Singapore at a low rate for too many years. He said the new rate will reflect the actual price of raw water. (source: http://news.asiaone.com/news/malaysia/spore-water-deal-be-reviewed )

    Some products cost more in S

    Some products cost more in S’pore than other cities: MAS & MTI study POSTED: 29 Apr 2014 12:36 Buying a product from Apple, Zara and IKEA could cost more in Singapore compared to 10 other cities, according to a study by the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) and Ministry of Trade and Industry (MTI). SINGAPORE: Buying a product from Apple, Zara and IKEA could cost more in Singapore compared to 10 other cities, according to a study by the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) and Ministry of Trade and Industry (MTI). According to the study -- which analyses price differences for 647 items from the three global brands across the 11 cities --"Singapore's prices are found to be relatively high in most instances". Releasing the findings on Tuesday as part of the its Macroeconomic Review, MAS said Singapore's prices are above the median for two-thirds of the items, and prices for about a quarter of them are below the median. This means that for the same brand, prices in Singapore can be higher than in other cities for some items but lower for others. Among the cities included in the study are London, Paris, New York, Shanghai and Hong Kong. MAS added that for most of the items which are more expensive in Singapore, the price premiums do not exceed 20 per cent. The report said pricing decisions of the firms are influenced by unit cost and demand for their products in the market. Still, the study pointed out that Singapore is not the most expensive location, and it is most expensive for only 6 per cent of the products. MAS said the three global brands in the study -- Apple, Zara and IKEA -- were chosen given the large number of identical consumer electronics, furniture, and apparel products that could be compared across cities. - CNA/nd http://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/...e/1089024.html Don't we already know and isn't this so obvious?

  23. The military style precision car-jacking and robbery @ Johor Bahru seem to be more professional over the years!! Share 0 inShareThe New Paper Monday, May 28, 2012 It was a robbery that involved dangerous manoeuvres, a car chase,and violent men wielding parangs. It ended with the victim being slashed and the SUV turning turtle. The drama unfolded on Thursday afternoon in Johor Baru's business district. Shin Min Daily News reported that the victim, a man in his 40s, was driving the Singapore-registered SUV. There were friends on board with him. The victim, who is Malaysian Chinese, lives in Johor Baru. When he drove into a back lane behind some shop houses, he noticed a stationary brown SUV blocking his way. Then, a Proton bearing a Kuala Lumpur-licence plate swerved into the lane. The victim was sandwiched. Speaking to the media from a private hospital, the victim recalled: "Immediately after (I entered the back lane), two cars outflanked me. Men rushed out from the vehicles and smashed my car windows." Five of the eight robbers wielded parangs. Threw rolling pin A chef, who wanted to be known as Ami, was working in the kitchen of one of the shophouses and witnessed the incident. He was holding a rolling pin, which he threw at the robbers. It hit one of them. Ami, 27, said his action angered the group. One man turned round and scolded him. Ami said: "He shouted at me not to interfere." The chef heeded the warning. Though he was holding a vegetable peeling knife as well, he knew he was ill-equipped to fight against the robbers, with their parangs. Malaysian newspaper Sin Chew Daily reported that the robbers were Indonesians. They grabbed two briefcases from the victim's SUV before fleeing the scene. But the victim fought back.He gave chase in his SUV - unsuccessfully. After a 500m drive, the victim tried to overtake the robbers but collided with another car at the side of the road, causing his SUV to overturn. That was when he saw a white car, with no licence plate. The robbers abandoned their own SUV and dashed into the waiting Harrier. Still, the victim didn't give up. He grabbed a wooden club from his SUV and approached the fleeing robbers. That proved to be a painful decision. Infuriated, one of the robbers slashed the victim's right arm, tearing the ligament in his middle finger. The victim also suffered a broken bone in his ring finger. The robbers managed to escape, leaving a trail of destruction. There were pools of blood on the road and blood stains on the wooden club. Residents in the area sent the injured victim to hospital. Johor Baru south district police director Zainudin confirmed that the suitcases contained large amounts of cash from two money changers. The exact amount is unknown. It was also unclear where the cash was being sent. This article was first published in The New Paper.
