  6. Hi guys, heard from an old friend that says new car once on the road already -20% liao. So i take it that he meant 20% depreciation in the first year. Maybe is this why people always say the first 2 to 3 years the first owner bears the brunt of the steep depreciation? Is this assumption near reality? 1st yr : 20% depreciation 2nd year: 10% dep 3rd year : 10% dep rest of the 7 years divide equally the remaining value.

  9. We all know Santa Claus is not real but we all want to believe in him. Trump is the real president of America but those in America do not want to believe it. Any other true or fake news? http://www.straitstimes.com/world/united-states/ho-ho-hoax-story-of-terminally-ill-american-boy-dying-in-santas-arms-may-not-be KNOXVILLE, Tennessee - In the spirit of Christmas, Santa Claus himself might have just hopped on the fake news trend that has been taking the world by storm. Knoxville News Sentinel, part of the USA Today network, had reported about an incident in a local hospital, where a terminally ill five-year-old boy died in the arms of Santa Claus actor Eric Schmitt-Matzen a few weeks ago. The story went viral, and was picked up by major news networks. However on Wednesday (Dec 14), the paper published a note from editor Jack McElroy and the author of the original story, columnist Sam Venable, saying they have been unable to verify the story as accurate. "Since publication, the News Sentinel has done additional investigation in an attempt to independently verify Schmitt-Matzen's account. This has proven unsuccessful. Although facts about his background have checked out, his story of bringing a gift to a dying child remains unverified," said Mr McElroy and Mr Venable in the note. "Therefore, because the story does not meet the newspaper's standards of verification, we are no longer standing by the veracity of Schmitt-Matzen's account." The paper had reported the story on Sunday (Dec 11), after contacting and interviewing Mr Schmitt-Matzen, who has been playing Santa Claus for years at the local hospital, following a tip off by a "known source". He said a nurse had called him about the five-year-old's request to see Santa Claus, and that there was no time for him to change into his full costume. At the hospital, he gave the boy a toy and told him right before he died: "When you get there, you tell them you're Santa's No. 1 elf and I know they'll let you in." After the incident, he was so affected he said he thought he would never be able to play the role of Santa again. The Knoxville News Sentinel said that the 60-year-old wanted to protect the identities of the child's family and the nurse who called him. In follow-up interviews and video recordings by local and national television outlets, the 1.8m tall and 141kg Mr Schmitt-Matzen, president of Packing Seals & Engineering in Jacksboro, Tennessee, has stood by his account. pzeric12e_2x.jpg Related Story Terminally ill little boy dies in Santa's arms collage191116.jpg Related Story Can you tell the fake news stories from the real ones? Take our quiz vikram_3.jpg Related Story How to fight back against the scourge of fake news The note has been met with mixed views on the newspaper's Facebook post. Some believed in the legitimacy of the story, and gave Mr Schmitt-Matzen the benefit of the doubt. Facebook user Lynn Taylor Morgan commented: "I am disgusted. The family shouldn't have to come forward to verify this story. It's true. Period." However, there were also those who were wary, especially given the spread of fake news on the internet. Facebook user Jean Ash said: "I would hope the purported Santa or child's family would come forth. Otherwise, we must acknowledge a possible hoax. What a shame." TOPICS: CHRISTMAS CHILDREN AND YOUTH

  11. A driver in KL wrote:- On Christmas Eve, I decided against going out to party cos everywhere would be packed and instead went to me mate's place in Bandar Sunway for a game of Mahjong. We finished at about 4.00am and I took the LDP highway from Bandar Sunway back to Taman Tun. It was a great evening, not raining, no car on the road and I made a tidy sum at mahjong and I was crusing at 80kph, perfect day. As I was approaching the flyover near Damansar Jaya I glance at my rear mirror and notice two cars coming at tremendous speed & told meself, shall I drop to 3 gear and say Warp Speed 2 Mr. Sulu? I decided against it and move to the inside lane. On entering the flyover the 1st car overtook me (Proton Satria) at speed followed rapidly by the 2nd Proton, which swerved into my lane to overtake the 1st car. I had no choice but to swerve to avoid hitting the 2nd Proton. as I corrected my car the back wheel hit the kerb and I flipped over to the secondary road which takes you to Damansara Jaya. I think my car must have rolled over at least 5 times. Finally it came to a stop, oops I didn't wore my seat belt. 1st thing I did was check both my legs, they were ok, so was my arms. I check my head and body, there was no blood. I open the door (later found out it was the only door that can open) and walk out. I look at my car and it look quite similar to a Lotus Esprit kekeke. I must have been in shock but it don't half seem like eternity b4 the first of many tow truck operators arrived. They towed the car to USF (total loss). I went and look at me car today and tell myself how in heaven's name did I walk away from a wreck like this without a scratch. Hey my Guardian Angel was with me. I'm not angry or upset but (tham choon toi/ bang balls) abit lah. The people who caused the accident got off scot free. On hindsight I thought if I had say Warp 2 Mr. Sulu maybe nothing would happened. Moral of the story : Driving slowly doesn't mean you will not get into an accident. Speed don't kill!! Humans do !!! Its gonna take a few months b4 I can get my claim from the insurance, I'll buy another Airtrek Turbo, a silver one this time. Meanwhile you guys have a Happy New Year. Mine would be just as Happy, hey I'm still in one piece.

  13. The Straits Times, Published on Nov 06, 2012 No true democracy with [antiquated] US Electoral College system TODAY'S presidential election in the United States raises the question of whether the country is really a democracy with the Electoral College system. Does every vote count? The US uses the Electoral College, which consists of 538 state electors to elect its president. So it is not individual Americans who vote to pick the president, but the 538 electors of the Electoral College. In the 2000 US presidential election, Democrat Al Gore received the popular vote, but lost in the Electoral College vote count to Republican George W. Bush. Technically, Mr Gore won that election as more Americans voted for him than for Mr Bush. This has happened three other times in past US presidential elections. Will it happen again this time? Will the candidate with the popular vote not become the next US president? There cannot be true democracy with the Electoral College system. Cho Yan Fatt Copyright

    Is this deal too good to be true?

  17. its interesting what this girl did to fool everyone that follows her on FB and her family. abit boliao but she definitely proved her point to the whole. its time for the good old meet up sharing sessions instead of sharing only on FB. http://www.gapyear.com/news/230749/dutch-girl-fakes-a-trip-to-se-asia ....................Bending reality on Facebook is hardly unusual – in fact it’s turning into something of a life skill – but Zilla’s efforts seem to have taken things to a whole new level. The reasons behind her actions, however, are noble: it was all part of a university project, in which she wanted to show how Facebook activity is not necessarily reflective of real life. Speaking to media in her home country, she said: “I did this to show people that we filter and manipulate what we show on social media, and that we create an online world which reality can no longer meet. “My goal was to prove how common and easy it is to distort reality. Everybody knows that pictures of models are manipulated. But we often overlook the fact that we manipulate reality also in our own lives.”........................

  21. Hi MCF brother/sisters, Recently I heard from my friend that he passed by one of N&B snacks outlet (selling soya milk) & saw their job vacancies. Both part-time & full-time positions available. One of the position is a Business Executive position offering S$5,000/mth and above, depending on F&B experience. Even the part-time job also seems quite good pay at $6.50/hr. Wonder if all this is too good to be true? If it is so good, I think many people would have applied already. Just wanna find out if anyone has working experience with N&B and please share how is the working environment & culture??
  22. a real rubbish idea if this is true is this considered humiliation to our NS boys by letting any Tom Dick and Harry (or worse FTs) to command them??

    True Story of a ex SAF regular

  24. How true is it? If it is true...damn..we are really in a pile of s--t if we can't afford to pay the HDB loan. And I'm sure it will happen to many people once the retrenchment starts ________________________________________________________________________________ __________________________________________ About 6 years ago, my wife and I were out of jobs and we could not afford to pay our monthly instalments to HDB (it was about $500 per month). As a result, we had an outstanding debt of $11K to HDB. One day we received a letter that said HDB wants to force us to sell our 3 room flat to pay back our money owing. We went to the local MP to seek help and they wrote a letter to HDB on our behalf. We then received a letter from HDB to go down to AMK branch office in order to meet their officer, Mr Chua. At the end of the session he still insisted we pay another $200 on top of the previous $500 per month!! We went in to ask for help to work out a solution to our financial situation and instead they suggested that we should now pay $700 a month! Is this help?!?!? We gave up realising HDB would not help us. We decided to borrow from wherever we can to pay every month until we can both manage to get a job! Since then, we have been paying $700/mth as agreed with the officer earlier, but they still called us every month trying to force us to pay additional CASH payments on top of the $700 we already paid using CPF! Luckily for us, everything went quite smoothly and we are able to pay off most of the outstanding amount. Today, the outstanding balance is only about $1700+. Recently however, during January 2013, we received a letter from HDB saying that they wanted to force us to sell off our flat again!!! Back then, the outstanding amount was only about $5500. So we went down to HDB again and asked what happened? What happened to the agreement that was made earlier? They just said that as long as we have an outstanding debt totalling more than 3 months of the monthly instalment amount, they had the right to force us to sell our flat! Offcourse we need our flat, or where else will we live? So we paid another $2500 from our CPF, then in Feb 2013 they called again saying we hadn
