  3. https://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/harsher-punishment-for-security-officers-who-sleep-on-the-job-or-act-unprofessionally-from SINGAPORE - Private security officers who slack off, sleep on the job or come to work drunk can face tougher punishment from next year, as the police strengthen penalties for errant behaviour to boost the industry's professionalism and bolster Singapore's defences. From Jan 1, officers who display errant behaviour can be punished by a fine not exceeding $2,000 or imprisonment for a term not exceeding three months, or both, The Straits Times has learnt. ***** Would it not applied to the SMRT to "cure" the deep-seated cultural extraction? Have become so intolerant of the security or has the security becoming so blatant that this has become law?
  4. An interesting insight into the eyes of Expat kids serving their NS. Hard to imagine living in Singapore and yet not made a single local friend. If you have 10 mins of time while drinking kopi in office, it's worth a read. http://ricemedia.co/culture-people-expat-kids-national-service-culture-shock/
  5. Our new racing game has been released and Singaporean players has been VERY GOOD to us. We would like to make something special in-game for Singaporean players as a thanks. For example, car which has special meaning in Singapore or special car plate design. We know different places could have some interesting differences in car culture, or some local joke. Please inspire us. In case you want to check out the game: https://itunes.apple.com/sg/app/hot-slide/id1332599245?mt=8
  6. One of the rats must have took MRT from Bukit Batok to Marina Square to have lunch at Hotpot Culture. Sebei gross sia. https://sg.news.yahoo.com/blogs/what-is-buzzing/rats--customers-find--extra-ingredient--at-porridge-buffet---070503504.html [uPDATED 9 January 2015, 8:30 PM: NEA suspends Hotpot Culture Restaurant, investigating rat issue] The National Environment Authority (NEA) has suspended Hotpot Culture Restaurant after a rat carcass was allegedly found in one of its dishes. "The restaurant has been instructed to suspend its operations immediately while NEA conducts its investigations," said its spokesman in a media statement to Yahoo Singapore. What was supposed to be a value-for-money porridge buffet for a group of colleagues turned into a stomach churning experience after a customer allegedly spotted a dead rat in one of the restaurant’s free-flow dishes. Ms Caron Chan, who declined to reveal her occupation, was with four other colleagues at Hot Pot Culture’s porridge buffet at Marina Square when they made the grisly find. According to her, a colleague had spotted what she thought was a rat’s tail in a vegetable dish. Chan then proceeded to scoop out the rest of the mystery meat, to discover to her disgust that it was a whole rat carcass. She then approached a staff member. “The staff member didn’t even react quickly, she handled something else first, then came to us and told another employee to remove it. She just said sorry and that they would serve a new batch,” said Chan. “What about the other customers who already ate it? That was so gross. They should have quickly stopped operations.” Completely turned off by their find, Chan and her colleagues left the restaurant without paying, but informed the table next to them, which had already eaten the dish. “The lady at the table next to us told us that she was still charged by the restaurant. She has already lodged a complaint with the National Environment Agency,” said Chan, who posted photos of the rat dish on her Facebook account, which has since been shared widely. When Yahoo Singapore called Hot Pot Culture, the manager on duty said she was unaware of the rat incident. “As far as I know, I just heard that the dish wasn’t fresh and so we replaced it,” she said. When pressed further for information from the management, she took down the contact of this reporter and said the owner would be in touch. Another report from Stomp http://singaporeseen.stomp.com.sg/singaporeseen/this-urban-jungle/eeew-body-of-rat-found-in-dish-of-salted-vegetables-at-chinese-restaurant The lady should have called police & NEA right away and not inform the staff working there. Stand there with her colleagues to stop ppl from eating anything. Call police is to make sure the staff do not take the dish away and their respond time may be faster dan NEA.

    Thailand road culture

    Hi guys, I just came back from Phuket on a self drive trip (not driving my car there but rented a car there to drive around and explore). It happens that sometimes I get local cars giving me a high beam (once), I know its not rude (like our local taxi uncle giving long high beams forcing you to give way to them), but it should be meaning something, read on other threads, some drivers from other countries use high beam to warn cars of dangers or road hazard ahead. is this the case? anyway i love driving in Phuket... the drivers were patient, does not horn unnecessarily (i only kana horned once cos i was talking to my gf when the green light is already on). I dun see much drivers here speeding... all driving within speed limits... even giving way readily when you signal to them.

    Baby shower culture

    fellow bros, anyone has any idea if we can still hold baby shower if the grandmother of the mother side just passed away within the 100 days?? thanks in advance
  9. Hey everyone, I really need your help! My name is Andreanna and I am a Canadian Master's student studying in the Netherlands. I am researching how people from different countries and culture think about corporate social responsibility. Singapore is one of my focal countries so I need people from Singapore to answer my (short!) online survey. To reach my target I still need 50 respondents and I am running out of time. So if you could help me by filling out my survey I would be so happy! Also, you have the chance to win a prize of a US$ 30.00 i Tunes gift card (or the equivalent in SGD). If you win and prefer a different kind of gift card (Steam, Amazon etc) then that is also not a problem :) The survey should not take you longer than 8 minutes. Your responses will be treated confidentially and used only for the purpose of this research. Here is the link: https://umsbe.eu.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_2cowuD6UCvfCKd7 Thank you in advance for your help - I really really appreciate it - Andreanna
  10. i think this Garfield is really brainless so what has he done in his 12 years (almost a generation) as president? is he trying to tell us to have a common culture (new Singapore culture) with the FTs after one or two generations??

    Slow Down Culture

    Slow Down Culture It's been 18 years since I joined Volvo, a Swedish company. Working for them has proven to be an interesting experience. Any project here takes 2 years to be finalized, even if the idea is simple and brilliant. It's a rule. Globalize processes have caused in us (all over the world) a general sense of searching for immediate results. Therefore, we have come to posses a need to see immediate results. This contrasts greatly with the slow movements of the Swedish. They, on the other hand, debate, debate, debate, hold x quantity of meetings and work with a slowdown scheme. At the end, this always yields better results. Said in another words: 1. Sweden is about the size of San Pablo, a state in Brazil. 2. Sweden has 2 million inhabitants. 3. Stockholm, has 500,000 people. 4. Volvo, Escania, Ericsson, Electrolux are some of its renowned companies. Volvo supplies the NASA. The first time I was in Sweden, one of my colleagues picked me up at the hotel every morning. It was September, bit cold and snowy. We would arrive early at the company and he would park far away from the entrance (2000 employees drive their car to work). The first day, I didn't say anything, either the second or third. One morning I asked, "Do you have a fixed parking space? I've noticed we park far from the entrance even when there are no other cars in the lot." To which he replied, "Since we're here early we'll have time to walk, and whoever gets in late will be late and need a place closer to the door. Don't you think? Imagine my face. Nowadays, there's a movement in Europe name Slow Food. This movement establishes that people should eat and drink slowly, with enough time to taste their food, spend time with the family, friends, without rushing. Slow Food is against its counterpart: the spirit of Fast Food and what it stands for as a lifestyle. Slow Food is the basis for a bigger movement called Slow Europe, as mentioned by Business Week. Basically, the movement questions the sense of "hurry" and "craziness" generated by globalization, fueled by the desire of "having in quantity" (life status) versus "having with quality", "life quality" or the "quality of being". French people, even though they work 35 hours per week, are more productive than Americans or British (True?). Germans have established 28.8 hour workweeks and have seen their productivity been driven up by 20%. This slow attitude has brought forth the US's attention, pupils of the fast and the "do it now!". This no-rush attitude doesn't represent doing less or having a lower productivity. It means working and doing things with greater quality, productivity, perfection, with attention to detail and less stress. It means reestablishing family values, friends, free and leisure time. Taking the "now", present and concrete, versus the "global", undefined and anonymous. It means taking humans' essential values, the simplicity of living. It stands for a less coercive work environment, more happy, lighter and more productive where humans enjoy doing what they know best how to do. It's time to stop and think on how companies need to develop serious quality with no-rush that will increase productivity and the quality of products and services, without losing the essence of spirit. In the movie, Scent of a Woman, there's a scene where Al Pacino asks a girl to dance and she replies, "I can't, my boyfriend will be here any minute now". To which Al responds, "A life is lived in an instant". Then they dance to a tango. Many of us live our lives running behind time, but we only reach it when we die of a heart attack or in a car accident rushing to be on time. Others are so anxious of living the future that they forget to live the present, which is the only time that truly exists. We all have equal time throughout the world. No one has more or less. The difference lies in how each one of us does with our time. We need to live each moment. As John Lennon said, "Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans". Congratulations for reading till the end of this message. There are many who will have stopped in the middle so as not to waste time in this globalized world.

    Job culture will break Spore

    Even mainstream schools are engaging speakers to prepare students looking for jobs after their study. So your kids go to schools, serve the NS, and look for jobs, then get a girl friend, and start queuing for an expensive HDB flat which make them pay for life. Spore is all about getting jobs. A job will not bring true wealth; the job

    No MONEY - No Talk Culture

    No money, so girl, 6, misses 3 weeks of school http://www.asiaone.com/News/Education/Stor...205-119709.html it saddens me beyond words, that this no money no talk attitude has finally filtered down to the commoners from the top we are developing into a society, that puts material things first money before life, family and sad to say in time to come self dont our politicians get it, we are a nation of people living together and NOT a huge Inc A very obtuse way of viewing things: recently a singaporean was jail 10 months for pouring hot water on her maid and had her sleep with her dogs BUT our politicians (despite our huge reserve) has force citizens to desparation lighting up MP words to vent out frustration by karang guni man kena jail what about the MAN who allowed Mas Selamat escape who had planned to bomb changi Airport where is the justice as i get older, i am not sure but am very frigthened by the transformation of Singapore

  17. With MCF being the leading car forum with the largest no. of members in Singapore, do you think it has influence (positive/negative) the road users here? It has evolved from a place where pple can come in to exchange/learn more about technical aspects of their wheels to sharing the different driving experiences seasoned drivers have learnt. I can see members having notions of the common sense driving tips/etiquette but I wonder how many really practise it. With cars getting more affordable, either the quality of driving knowledge being imparted get diluted or drivers here have a whacko driving attitude when they are being the wheels, I read more and more complaints about acts that seems to get more & more common as compared to last time. As such, it leaves me to wonder, how can the members here really make a change as unity is strength. Can we do something to change the driving culture? Can we practise common-sense driving in S'pore so that insurance companies, workshops do not profit at the expense of our pocket? Therefore, on a Sunday morning, I start a provoking post for members to share on how we really can go about effecting some positive changes instead of forcing ourselves to put up with the increasing acts by reckless drivers. The way I see it, we can either continue to suppress our intolerance or really go about making an effort to drive the message across.
