https://www.tnp.sg/news/singapore/woman-fined-18000-unregistered-ovulation-and-pregnancy-test-kits

Pan Feng, a Chinese national and a Singapore permanent resident, was found to have brought in at least 10,000 pieces of ovulation test kits and at least 7,000 pregnancy test kits.

The housewife had intended to sell them on e-commerce platform Qoo10.

She admitted to importing these kits when she realised they were in demand, and planned to sell each pregnancy kit for 35 cents and each ovulation kit for 40 cents.


She would make a profit of 20 cents for each kit sold and earn an average of $2,000 a month.

She had been selling the kits for about two years.
















ermmm ..... people are too lazy to use contraceptives or test kits are cheaper than contraceptives? .....  WTH !!!!

Being well compensated DOES NOT prevent corruption and wrong-doing in the civil service and government.

Having the right moral ethos DOES.

It begins by reinstating Moral Education in our school syllabus

The reason why the civil libertarians and the LGBTQ is against this is to blur the lines and degrade the clarity of moral compass in the young so as to make them pliable to their insidious messages

 “Unsavoury characters” submitting forged certificates or degrees from Singapore institutions will quickly find themselves thwarted, as the Republic is issuing highly secure digital certificates to all graduating students from this year.

Announcing the development at Temasek Polytechnic’s graduation ceremony on Friday (May 3), Education Minister Ong Ye Kung said the digital certificates, called OpenCerts, which will be given to students alongside the traditional physical ones, will also provide more convenience.

“It allows for any education institute to issue OpenCerts, and for anyone to quickly check the validity of a digital certificate. This will in time make job application and hiring easier and smoother for both the applicant and the employer,” he said.

A job applicant would no longer need to go through the hassle of requesting for certified true copies of their diplomas or degrees from their institutions, he added.











I think most singaporeans are concerned with fake degrees from overseas and wished for relevant ministries especially MOM to scrutinise those degrees closely

The government may yet again be off the mark and barking up the wrong tree  ::)

Nearly two weeks since Instagram stories she posted took on a life of their own, National University of Singapore (NUS) undergraduate Monica Baey has again took to the social media platform to call for the online harassment against her perpetrator to stop.

In an Instagram post on Wednesday (May 1) titled "closure", Ms Baey noted that change at the university is afoot, but also spoke out against those who disagreed with the way she shared her story as a victim of sexual assault.

On April 18, the 23-year-old had expressed her frustration that NUS had not done more against fellow student Nicholas Lim, who filmed her in the shower at Eusoff Hall last November.

Mr Lim was given a 12-month conditional warning from police and was suspended from school for a semester. He was also made to write an apology letter to her.

The Instagram stories, which revealed Mr Lim's name and personal details, quickly went viral and prompted the university to form a review committee to take a closer look at disciplinary and support frameworks.

It also organised a campus town hall meeting attended by more than 600 students, including Ms Baey, who flew back to Singapore from her exchange programme in Taiwan.

NUS president Tan Eng Chye later apologised for falling short in providing support to victims of sexual misconduct, while Education Minister Ong Ye Kung called the current penalties "manifestly inadequate".

Describing it as "incredibly tiring, yet probably the most fulfilling week of my life", Ms Baey said on Wednesday that she is glad that "change has finally come".

However, she noted that Mr Lim did not deserve to be bullied online for what he had done.

She also acknowledged that it was "fair" for some people to disagree with how she had brought the issue to light.

She wrote: "To address those who are saying that my perpetrator is now a victim, all I will say in response to that is I genuinely hope that he is receiving proper support he needs to rehabilitate, and the unnecessary online harassment toward him and his loved ones will stop."

Though she felt that Mr Lim had got away lightly, she added it would now be up to NUS and its review committee - not Internet users or even herself - to make the call on whether her case should be reopened and tougher punishments should be meted out.

"I think it is time to step away from the discussion of what people think should be done to him, and step into the discussion of how we can improve our current society," she wrote.









Is she a mass communications major?

So now that the subject matter has taken on a life of its own after revealing and encouraging doxxing him on-line, you want the cyber-bullying to stop?  ::)

It was your actions that precipitated this - the good, the bad and the ugly... you can't choose and only listen to the good stuff .... whatever flack that comes back to you,  you rightly and richly deserves

PS:  she is still hot in unker's eyes nevertheless... :-*

  • About 79% of units were sold to locals in the first quarter

    Two-thirds see property on island as affordable, good value


Singaporeans’ deep-seated desire for home ownership has seen them snap up the biggest share of residential properties versus foreigners in a decade.

About 79 percent of private apartments went to Singaporeans in the first quarter, the most since the first three months of 2009, according to property consultants OrangeTee & Tie Pte. And the homes weren’t cheap -- the proportion of local purchases of luxury units jumped to 69 percent from 36 percent in the same period a year ago.


“The rising number of affluent locals purchasing luxury homes indicates their confidence that Singapore remains a safe haven for capital preservation and appreciation,” Christine Sun, head of research and consultancy at OrangeTee, said.

That confidence was also reflected in a survey released last week by PropertyGuru, which found that while most locals believe home prices are too high, two-thirds reckon apartments are still affordable -- not bad in a city where prime unit prices come in around the $1.2 million mark and the average monthly rent is $1,935.

Younger people are moving out of their parents’ homes earlier and demand for executive condominiums has grown in popularity among upgraders, PropertyGuru’s study found.

Cooling Foreigners
“As wealth creation continues to grow in Singapore the desire and ability to pursue higher-quality living is driving the higher proportion of private home ownership,” said Christine Li, the head of research for Singapore at Cushman & Wakefield Inc. “While foreign buyers have remained resilient, the proportion could have been much higher if cooling measures hadn’t been punitive to them.”

Authorities have kept a tight leash on the property market since the early part of the decade in a bid to avoid runaway prices. The government in July imposed higher stamp duties, with levies for foreigners the highest at 20 percent.

Developers sold a total of 1,838 new homes last quarter, 16 percent higher than in the same period a year ago, Urban Redevelopment Authority data show. Buyers with deep pockets proved particularly fond of newly launched luxury condos, where sales more than doubled to 192 units, the highest number of new prime dwellings homes sold in any quarter since December 2017.

Last quarter also saw the most sales of super-luxury new condos -- or those with price tags in excess of S$3,500 ($2,570) per square foot -- in more than a decade. One penthouse in a development near the Orchard Road shopping district went for S$28 million, or S$4,927 per square foot.

Yah right,  only a dim-wit will believe  .... the only way to feel safe is to campaign for single-sex halls of residences .... why don't we start with that?  Unker will surely support...
