  1. Many companies are resorting to cohorting, where one team works and another remains at home. Others have reduced the workplace exposure by having some do work remotely. Trips have been cancelled but some companies have asked workers to consume their annual leave. So what are you doing with the extra time? What new food have you tried? Taken up any new hobbies?
  2. Mediacorp is producing period drama for the first time in 20 years. The story is set in the Ming Dynasty and based on the historical figure Li Shizhen. Out of the 30 episodes, 6 episodes is in the ancient setting. The production will fly to Hengdian to film in December, and slated for broadcast on Channel 8 in May 2020. Mediacorp may produce full fledged period drama again if the response of this show is good. https://www.zaobao.com.sg/zentertainment/movies-and-tv/story20191002-993825 Hope it won't be a flop

  4. Couldn't find this on MCF. If it's been posted before, my deepest apologies. http://www.straitstimes.com/breaking-news/...s-time-20130811 On Aug 22, 2012, I received a thank-you card from a Singaporean by the name of James Ow-Yeong Keen Hoy. From his elegant, cursive handwriting, I guess he must at least be in his 50s. Young people these days prefer to type, and when they do write, they simply do not write as beautifully. He wrote: "My family is deeply grateful and has benefited from your magnificent leadership and solid contributions that have enabled our nation to achieve peace, happiness, progress, prosperity, solidarity and security all these good years. A big thank you! "May we have the honour to sincerely wish you, Sir, peace and joy, wisdom and longevity and all the very best in the coming good years. And may our beloved country be blissfully and richly blessed and be mercifully safeguarded now and always. God bless." I quote at length from this card to highlight the enormity of the mindset shift, from an older generation, including this writer, his peers and his seniors, to a younger one that takes for granted Singapore's affluence. People like Mr Ow-Yeong have seen Singapore develop from the unsettling 1960s, when hardship and poverty were still the rule rather than the exception, to today's vibrant and cosmopolitan Singapore, providing well-paying jobs to a highly educated population. Many older Singaporeans also progressed from living in shanty huts to high-rise apartments with present-day conveniences and surrounded by safe neighbourhoods. They have a good understanding of the nation's imperatives - what it took for us to get here and what it would take to keep up our success - as well as its vulnerabilities. The younger voters do not share those views. Having been born into a Singapore that had in many ways already arrived, they see all that is around them - a working system generating stability and wealth - and they ask: "Where is the miracle?"... Even as things stand, we have regretfully shifted the system away from attracting the best talent through reductions to ministerial pay. If I were a Cabinet minister at the time the change came up for discussion, I would have stood firm. But the younger generation of ministers decided to go with the trend. It is true that no country in the world pays ministers as we do. But it is also true that no other island has developed like Singapore: sparkling, clean, safe, with no corruption and low crime rates. You can walk the streets or jog at night. Women will not be mugged. Police do not take bribes, and if they are offered bribes, there are consequences for the ones offering. None of this came about by coincidence. It took the construction of an ecosystem that requires highly paid ministers. With every pay reduction, the sacrifice that a minister makes - giving up his profession or his banking job - becomes greater. Some will eventually tell themselves: "I don't mind doing this for half a term, 21/2 years, as a form of national service. But beyond that, it has to be: thanks but no thanks." The final outcome would be a revolving-door government, which will inevitably lack a deep understanding of the issues or the incentive to think about problems in a long-term manner. Will Singapore be around in 100 years? I am not so sure. America, China, Britain, Australia - these countries will be around in 100 years. But Singapore was never a nation until recently. An earlier generation of Singaporeans had to build this place from scratch - and what a fine job we have done. When I led the country, I did what I could to consolidate our gains. So too did Goh Chok Tong. And now, under Lee Hsien Loong and his team, the country will do well for at least the next 10 to 15 years. But after that, the trajectory that we take will depend on the choices made by a younger generation of Singaporeans. Whatever those choices are, I am absolutely sure that if Singapore gets a dumb government, we are done for. This country will sink into nothingness.

  7. Mr Goh does not seem to understand it is always has been about dollars and cents on this 3/4 tank rule. Although I am all for srapping this %^&*$!!!, the authorities will never agree to it because this means losing rich source of revenue from petrol duties. From ST Forum: http://www.straitstimes.com/STForum/Story/...ory_816291.html Time for three-quarter tank rule to go Published on Jun 29, 2012 DRIVERS of Singapore- registered vehicles have not been allowed to purchase the RON95 grade of petrol in Malaysia since August 2010. This petrol grade, which is subsidised by the Malaysian government, costs RM1.90 (76 Singapore cents) per litre currently, and is available only to Malaysia-registered vehicles. Singapore-registered vehicles can be filled only with RON97 petrol, which is no longer subsidised by the Malaysian government, and its price is subject to market forces. Currently, this grade of petrol costs RM2.90 per litre. Thus, the savings from filling our vehicles with petrol in Malaysia is no longer as attractive as it used to be. Also, the new Sultan Iskandar Customs, Immigration and Quarantine (CIQ) Complex has not helped to resolve the traffic jams associated with the old facility. The main problem lies with the narrow two-lane road leading to the new CIQ facility from Singapore, which is used by both buses and cars. The congestion affects vehicles leaving as well as entering Singapore. This infrastructural constraint is unlikely to be resolved any time soon, and the congestion could deter Singaporeans from going regularly to Malaysia to purchase petrol. Given the above-mentioned developments, the three-quarter fuel tank rule would appear to be redundant and should be scrapped. Goh Kian Huat

    Time spent with family

    MCF members mostly quite pro family from some of the posts we see here. But spending 36 hours sounds like a lot, that is as good as 3 hrs/day (mean no need OT liao) and 10 hrs each on both weekend ! a quick poll to see the real feel from the people here.
  11. What kind of weekender are you? 1. Go out on Saturdays and stay at home on Sundays. These people will continue to have fun after a 5 day work week and continue their surging energies into the Saturday. They will go out the whole day on Saturdays until late night since Sunday no work (or work half day and go out till night) and then rest the whole day on Sundays at home to prepare for Monday, e.g. sleep, spend time at home with family and hobby. 2. Stay at home on Saturdays and go out at Sundays. These people will rest, sleep, stay at home with family on Saturdays (or go home straight after half day work) and recharge after a hectic work week. They will go out on Sundays for some fun and return home early to get ready for Monday. 3. Work on Saturdays and Sundays or either one. These people have to work full days on weekends. Either whole weekend burnt for work or only have one day of weekend for rest or fun. 4. Go out on both Saturdays and Sundays. These people either have that energies or have only these 2 days for family and friends, so they make full use of it, like driving around exploring places, meet up with their wide circles of friends, movie marathons, etc. Each day is precious to them and they don't waste time at home sleeping. 5. Stay at home on both Saturdays and Sundays. These people are too tired to go anywhere after a hectic work week or want to save money after spending a lot during working days. They rather stay at home to recharge for the new working week, than going out because it is too tiring to go out, too expensive to spend on weekends, too crowded and boring to go anywhere during weekends. They prefer to stay at home, sleep, surf net, play with kids, cook and eat, watch TV, etc

    Happy Back To The Future Day!

    Not quite what i'd wanted it to be. No flying cars, instead we got facebook. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fF2jpIhxQmQ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d68yRIE9OvQ
  22. When I was 10, time seemed to go by so slowly. I had all the time in the world to do what I wanted. January seemed to never end. Though, December did seem to pass by a little faster than January did in that year. But, it was soon January again, time for school, time for friends, time for new learning. Right now, time passed us by so fast. LKY's passing was more than a month ago. I had not much idea what happened to April. Time. It seems not to be constant, but yet, all our instruments tell us that it is. A second is always a second. A year is always a year. Or is it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SNgyEmYyQF4
  23. I guess it's a matter of time. How much higher do you think it will go? I do not recall it being higher than 3% though but I am referring to AD rates.
  24. Ok, its my turn for oil change servicing. Any latest recommendation for any oil promotion? I'm used to use Amsoil but sadly the prices are controlled by one company. So i don't think its cheap anymore. And the current oil in the engine is Castrol Edge made in Japan, bought from Autobacs at special sale price. So any recommendation at this moment? I don't mind using Castrol again or even Mobil. What's the diff betwee Green and Gold cap?
