  1. https://www.todayonline.com/singapore/joo-chiat-sharella-free-umbrella-sharing-siglap-east-coast-2345411 The old lady is right. Anything free, Singaporean will just take.
  2. I have an idea. If the government decide to give out free food, simple fare no choice, maybe rice and 2 veg with a little meat but healthy, less oil less salt, how much does it cost? Assuming they can leverage on empty HDB spaces, can they do it ta $2 per meal? If they can, imagine they can do 1million meals a day, it is 0.73billion a year which is still far less than the 70 billion we spent just fighting covid and saving that few lives. Isn't the health benefits of 1million healthy meals a day far more than whatever we spent now on healthcare? Won't healthy diet reduce deaths by a lot?
  3. TIANJIN, China: Singapore and China on Thursday (Dec 7) announced that they will establish a 30-day mutual visa exemption agreement between both countries, amid a post-pandemic improvement in flight connectivity. The proposal was announced during the 19th Joint Council for Bilateral Cooperation (JCBC) meeting – the highest-level annual bilateral forum between both countries – held at the Hilton Tianjin Eco-City hotel with a range of agreements set to be signed. This is the first JCBC meeting to be co-chaired by Singapore’s Deputy Prime Minister Lawrence Wong and Chinese Vice Premier Ding Xuexiang. At the start of the meeting, Mr Ding noted how the number of Chinese students studying in Singapore has exceeded 40,000, basically recovering to pre-pandemic levels. He added that the visa-free arrangement would “provide greater convenience for people-to-people exchanges”. Mr Wong said Singapore hopes to even go beyond pre-pandemic levels in terms of direct flight connectivity. “This will be supported also by a mutual 30-day visa-free arrangement between our two countries, which will enable more people-to-people exchanges, thereby fortifying the bedrock of our bilateral relations," he added. Both sides are working out the operational details, with the aim of implementing the scheme in early 2024, the Singapore Prime Minister's Office said in a media release. Chinese citizens currently require a visa to enter Singapore. Singaporeans holding ordinary passports can enter China without a visa for 15 days if they are travelling for business, sightseeing, visiting relatives and friends, and in transit. China resumed this arrangement in July, more than three years after it was suspended because of the COVID-19 pandemic. This came on the heels of an upgrade in Singapore-China relations to an “All-Round High-Quality Future-Oriented Partnership”, after Singapore's Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong visited Chinese President Xi Jinping in Beijing in March during an official visit. The JCBC reviews the substantive collaboration between Singapore and China and charts the direction of cooperation. Mr Wong, who is on a four-day official visit to Beijing and Tianjin, said during a bilateral meeting on Wednesday that he was looking forward to signing more than 20 memoranda of understanding and agreements at the JCBC meeting. https://www.channelnewsasia.com/asia/singapore-china-30-day-mutual-visa-free-arrangement-3971566
  4. We have read about kind hearted residents providing free wifi for workers, giving them free food and drinks when the workers are working for them (upgrading project included), but this one really take the cake! The perks of being rich. Source: https://sg.news.yahoo.com/singapore-family-vending-machine-free-drinks-workers-031548465.html A family residing in Siglap has set up a drinks-vending machine outside their home, so that food deliverymen and other workers can enjoy free drinks. According to The Straits Times, Eric Chiam and his wife developed this vending machine idea with their triplet children, Andre, Ethan, and Sophia. They called this family project "TYVMdrinks" or "Thank You Very Much drinks", said Chiam in a LinkedIn post on Friday (3rd March). Each of the family members had specific roles. Chiam's son wrote the first ideas and critical considerations in a Google Doc, while his other son designed the logo and vending machine stickers. His daughter manages the Instagram account, his wife orders the drinks and Chiam himself funds the project. Although he had initially intended to store drinks in a fridge by the gate of his home at Yarrow Gardens, he encountered "significant difficulty" in constructing a shelter. As a result, they decided to install a vending machine that can keep beverages cold and withstand outdoor weather conditions. During its first month of operation in January, the machine dispensed 637 drinks to food deliverymen, postal workers, and anyone else coming by on a work errand. Chaim pointed out that postmen and refuse truck workers use the vending machine daily. "The Grab and Lalamove guys were in two camps, some took the drinks, but others were in too much of a hurry to notice its presence," he said. "We reckon news of the drinks machine has not gone around in their WhatsApp groups much yet." On average, 21 cans of beverages would be dispensed daily. According to Chiam, green tea and 100 plus beverages were the clear favourites. The Straits Times reported that setting up and decorating the vending machine cost about $3,000, and the canned drinks cost less than 50 cents each. Besides replenishing the vending machine twice a week, the family also discusses the types and number of drinks to buy over meals and ways to improve the project. Dr Chiam suggested a pay-it-forward system to improve the project where others can chip in to purchase drinks for the delivery workers. Having kind comments about the vending machine online has been encouraging. Chiam told The Straits Times, "The most rewarding part of this project is definitely seeing the smiles of delivery men, drivers and service people who use it."
  5. Can afford Tesla, cannot afford to charge? Just go to your nearest condo I guess. What happened? A Tesla Model Y at Sol Acres condominium was reported to have broke the lock to a wall plug to charge using the condo’s electricity, despite not being a resident vehicle. Pictures in the Facebook post show that the Tesla was using a wall plug in order to charge the car. The plug was apparently locked and subsequently broken, though no signs of damage were shown in the photo. According to a forum post on Tesla Motors Club, it might take 30-40 hours to charge the car up from empty using a 13A wall plug like in the picture. So the owner will have to leave the car there for 30-40 hours, by which time maybe security will get wise and put clamps on the car. If that happens, they would need to pay to remove the wheel clamp so the whole ordeal would have cost about the same plus the additional wasted time and embarassment. Online chatter Many presented very simple solutions to this problem. Many also ridiculed the Tesla owner for buying such a car but being unable to charge it. ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  9. Interesting article and I also notice this trend among people around me https://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/why-some-women-choose-to-be-child-free SINGAPORE - Madam Shirlene Noordin is 52 this year, and she still gets asked when she will have children. The communications director, who has been married for a decade, used to find such questions intrusive, but they now just make her chuckle. When she was younger and answered that she preferred never to be a mother, friends and relatives often told her she would change her mind. Some even warned that she might regret her decision one day. Now, past her childbearing years, neither has happened. She and her husband continue to live a fulfilling child-free life. She is not alone. According to the latest population figures, there is a growing pool of married women in Singapore who do not have children. In 2020, 13.5 per cent of married women in their 40s did not have children - up from 9.3 per cent in 2010. This follows a similar pattern across all age bands, including those in their 30s and 50s and older. For some of these women, it is biology that has made the decision for them. But for the others, it is a choice driven by pragmatic, ideological or personal reasons. Since society still links womanhood to motherhood, many of them face pressure to procreate, and are often labelled selfish or even unnatural for not wanting children. It does not help that Singapore's total fertility rate has fallen to its lowest ever at 1.1 last year, after declining for the past decades. While married women who are childless by choice are still the exception, rather than the norm, an ongoing government review on women's issues has sought to understand why some couples have not jumped on the parenthood bandwagon.
  10. Disclaimer: I don't hold anything against freegans, but if they are overly desperate in hunting for free stuff and even work lesser, the line may be crossed. If everyone stop spending, will the world not stop moving? Afterall, all these free stuff come for someone else pocket, and I wonder if taboo applies to these group of "free" thinker. Commentary: Living in Singapore doesn't have to be so expensive when you're a freegan https://www.channelnewsasia.com/commentary/freegan-food-rescue-waste-lifestyle-cost-living-sustainability-2753251 SINGAPORE: With the cost of food and petrol increasing on a weekly basis, every conversation with friends is sure to touch on inflation. Sometimes I am shy to admit I have not felt it at all, because my expenses have not increased in the past five years. Yet life has only gotten more abundant. At home, our fridge is full of fresh vegetables and fruits, sourced from food rescues where we collect “ugly” but edible produce from shopkeepers. Our cupboards are full of canned food and condiments, gathered from cafes and restaurants that have shut down. We have more soap and shampoo than some provision shops stock, enough for maybe a decade of use. We have a brand new CorningWare gifted from a family after spring cleaning and a Rommelsbacher 40L oven picked up from a void deck. As freegans, we collect things other people no longer want, to reuse or repurpose for our own needs. We limit our participation in the conventional economy as much as we can to save the environment and our expenses. Freeganism originated in San Francisco in the 1990s and has since spread globally. Our Facebook group Freegan In Singapore has grown to 10,000 members since I co-founded the movement in 2017. Alongside the growing popularity of freeganism is rising concern about our carbon and waste footprint. According to a study by the Institute of Policy Studies published in 2021, three in five Singaporeans believe protecting the environment should be prioritised over economic growth. However, making more sustainable choices is not always cheap. Vegan and fair-trade foods and clothes tend to be more expensive than their regular counterparts. So are electric cars, even with incentives and rebates. But the freegan lifestyle marries sustainable and frugal living through its emphasis on reducing consumption. Each item you buy comes from a long supply chain that uses up resources and produces waste at every stage, even if those products are sustainably sourced. Take for example an audio store owner whom I recently met. He needs to keep a surplus stock of earphones to provide exchanges for customers claiming their warranty. After a few years as warranty periods lapse, the remaining stock is discarded. That’s how I ended up receiving a hundred boxes of brand-new earphones. Multiply this by the number of businesses in Singapore, big and small, and it’s no wonder the country’s non-domestic sector generated 5.12 million tonnes of waste in 2021. But freegans don’t always strive to cut waste out of a passion for the environment. Some have a much more pragmatic reason – to reduce personal expenditure. I used to spend S$2,000 a month in my pre-freegan days. Now my necessary monthly expenses have dropped to just S$350, including insurance. As I eat mainly rescued food, I’ve lowered my food costs from $500 a month to zero, not counting the occasional birthday treat at a restaurant for a loved one. I am also a lot healthier as the variety of food I eat has expanded. I don’t remember when I last stepped into a shopping mall because I’ve been able to get items on my wishlist for free. What I spend on entertainment has plummeted because all my favourite leisure activities cost nothing: Communing with nature, visiting our island’s many parks and beaches, volunteering with social causes, and enjoying meals made from rescued food with friends. My one luxury is travelling. Before the pandemic, I was travelling five to six times a year – much more frequently compared to the one or two yearly trips in my pre-freegan days. This was due to having not only more disposable income but more free time. Because freegans spend less, we aren’t as pressured to earn more. Full-timers become part-timers. Dual-income households become single-income. Some choose to retire early, like I did three years ago. Freegans believe the price of making money is too costly, because we buy money with our limited time alive. Think about it: In any kind of paid work, you are exchanging your lifetime for cash. Some squander it on impulse purchases, meaning they need to spend more lifetime to earn more money. I would rather spend four to five hours of my lifetime each week collecting things I need than spend 40 to 50 hours each week earning money to buy the very same things. With that time saved, freegans can focus on activities that matter to them. This could be making art or writing, growing plants to beautify the surroundings and improve mental health, or building communities where members look out for each other. We rediscover the hobbies we enjoyed before a money-centric world taught us we had to monetise what we like to do or drop it. We no longer sell irreplaceable lifetime to buy replaceable material goods. When so many things we need can be acquired for free, there is little else we absolutely need to spend money on – meaning that the cost of living in Singapore doesn’t have to be sky high. What many people find expensive could be the cost of lifestyle instead.

  15. Scotland could become the first nation to ensure free universal access to pads and tampons source: https://edition.cnn.com/2020/02/27/europe/scotland-free-period-products-bill-trnd/index.html?utm_term=link&utm_source=twCNN&utm_medium=social&utm_content=2020-03-01T09%3A01%3A02 (CNN)Scotland has moved to become the first nation to make tampons and pads free. The Scottish parliament advanced legislation on Tuesday that would ensure free universal access to tampons, pads and other menstrual products, in a huge stride for the global movement against period poverty. The Period Products (Free Provision) Scotland Bill passed through the first stage with 112 votes in favor and one abstention. No one opposed the bill. "Women and girls are too often left behind in the political process," Monica Lennon, who introduced the bill last year, said during the debate. "This is a chance to put them first and do something that is truly groundbreaking on gender equality." Lennon also acknowledged transgender and non-binary people, adding that the bill was designed to be inclusive of everyone who menstruates. The bill now moves to the second stage, where members of the Scottish parliament can propose amendments before it is given final consideration in stage three. The bill aims to tackle period poverty, stigma around menstruation and the impact that periods have on education. "Menstruation is normal," Lennon said. "Free universal access to tampons, pads and reusable options should be normal too." One in 10 girls in the United Kingdom have been unable to afford period products, according to a 2017 survey from Plan International UK. The survey also found that nearly half of all girls aged 14 to 21 are embarrassed by their periods, while about half had missed an entire day of school because of them. "For some reason, period products are regarded by some as a luxury, a luxury for which women should be charged," Alison Johnstone, a member of parliament, said during debate. "Why is it in 2020 that toilet paper is seen as a necessity but period products aren't?" The Scottish government has made other efforts to tackle period poverty in the last few years. In 2018, the government announced that students in schools, colleges and universities across the countries would be able to access sanitary products for free, through a £5.2 million investment. In 2019, it allocated another £4 million to make period products available for free in libraries and recreational centers.
  16. Think there have been many cases of people faced with million dollar medical bills. Think it is time to review the need for free healthcare. Would you rather we have high taxes and have free healthcare or have it status quo where healthcare is only for rich in society? http://theindependent.sg/1m-for-hospital-bill-healthcare-or-nightmare/

  22. Want free local data? Singtel and AIA partner up for you to walk for it Need more motivation to get healthy? How about scoring up to 3GB of free data just by walking? Singtel has partnered AIA to launch a new wellness platform called StepUp. It’s part of the telco’s My Singtel app and is available to postpaid Combo, XO and SIM-only customers. Customers will earn points based on the number of steps they take daily. The more steps, the more cumulative points will be awarded. The maximum number of points per day is 100 for 10,000 steps. A customer who achieves a daily goal of 10,000 steps a day for a month will get 3,000 points, which is equivalent to 3GB of local data. Someone who gets between 5,000 and 7,000 steps daily for a month will earn 1,800 points, which can be used to redeem 1GB of free data worth 1,000 points. Yuen Kuan Moon, CEO, Consumer Singapore, Singtel said: “We want to encourage healthy lifestyles and wellness, and with StepUp, customers will be rewarded for their efforts to keep fit. We are always trying to find ways to offer customers products, services and perks to complement their digital lifestyles. Our partnership with AIA marks a shared commitment to champion the importance of staying active for life.” The platform will also offer lifestyle rewards from AIA and other partners, on top of wellness, fitness and nutrition content. To start their journey to health (and other rewards), customers only need to log into their My Singtel app, activate StepUp and sync their steps from their smartphones. They can then keep track of how many steps they have taken. To celebrate the launch, customers who clock 10,000 steps a day at least once from now until Aug 31 will stand a chance to win an Apple Watch Series 4 or Samsung Galaxy Watch. In addition, from Aug 1, Singtel customers can also take on the AIA Vitality Challenge on StepUp to claim movie tickets, gourmet coffee and ride-hailing vouchers. They can also look forward to more reward options in the coming months, such as a free Diet & Sports DNA kit by GeneLife and other items from Puma and SingSaver. Singtel’s strategic partnership with AIA is the first of its kind between the two companies. Patrick Teow, CEO of AIA Singapore said: “Through leveraging Singapore’s digital advantage, our common shared value is to make a real difference in people’s lives, particularly when Singaporeans are spending more time on their digital devices such as their mobile phones and living sedentary lives. With StepUp, individuals and families can now take charge of their own health and integrate more active lifestyle habits into their daily lives.”
