Former presidential candidate Tan Cheng Bock on Friday (Jan 18) announced his return to politics, saying he has filed an application to form a new political party.

Dr Tan headed a group of "12 concerned Singaporeans, including some ex-PAP (People’s Action Party) cadres" who on Wednesday filed the application with the Registry of Societies, said the 78-year-old in a media release.

The party will be called the Progress Singapore Party, and is intended to be an "added voice in Parliament".

"Over the years a group of us have been walking the ground, meeting many Singaporeans from all walks of life," said Dr Tan. "We held group discussions and conversations with many, listening to their concerns, hearing their fears and feeling their pain.

"We felt a sense of duty to come forward and help address the issues in a more formal setting like Parliament. So we decided to form a political party to be an added voice in Parliament."

This decision to strike out on their own was not an easy one, Dr Tan elaborated in a Facebook post.

He said that he had studied many options with his team, including joining an existing opposition party, taking over an existing opposition party and running independently.

"I want to thank all those who made such generous offers," he said. "I considered them all seriously and it was a difficult decision, but I feel it is the right one."

"Though we are setting up a new party, we still look forward to working with others in the opposition who are passionate about putting country first – before either party or self."

Dr Tan added that at the age of 78, he has a "short window" that he intends to use mentoring and developing future parliamentarians who will "work for the good of our nation".

"We want to build a compassionate and truly democratic Singapore where good values and people matter," he said. "Freedom of choice and free speech without fear must be defended."

Dr Tan said he and his team are waiting for approval from the Registry of Societies and once approval is granted, a press conference will be held to detail the party's objectives, vision and mission.

Dr Tan, who was a Member of Parliament for 26 years, ran unsuccessfully for President in 2011. In March 2016, he announced his intention to run again, but amendments to the Constitution precluded him from doing so.

Dr Tan had also mounted a legal challenge to the Government’s decision to reserve the last Presidential election for Malay candidates. The Court of Appeal dismissed his application.

Please form an orderly queue, guys.

Good news, all you lonely single men out there.

This match-making agency specialises exclusively in matching up Japanese women with Singaporean men.

Guidance will be provided
The agency, which was soft-launched in December 2018, claims that Singapore has become a “trending” place for Japanese women to find love.

But it isn’t just a matter of ice-breaker games and stilted conversations over a glass of wine.

Destini IS will guide each Singaporean male who signs up on how to date and live with a Japanese partner.

Each member will also go through a series of “comprehensive tests” to find our more about himself and what he looks for in a partner.

The agency boasts a strategic alliance with the Japan Marriage Counsellor Federation, a private company, and has a database of 60,000 members in Japan.

And if you do manage to get married, Destini IS also offers two years of free counselling services.




According to the ladies in the video, they believe that Singaporean men are kind, sincere and slim with nice bodies.

They also think Singaporean men are masculine, smart and are well-organised gentlemen.

Hong Kong's consumer watchdog has asked bakeries to change the ingredients used to make cookies and biscuits, after at least 50 types sold in the city were found to contain carcinogenic substances.
On Tuesday, the Consumer Council said it had found traces of glycidol and acrylamide - chemical by-products of the manufacturing process that increase the risk of cancer - in almost 90 per cent of the 58 samples tested between August and October last year.

Meanwhile, 35 types of cookie were found to contain 3-MCPD, another chemical by-product that can harm the kidneys and male fertility.

"Those elements were generated because of the heating of the oil at certain temperatures," said Clement Chan Kam-wing, chairman of the council's publicity and community relations committee.

"We recommend manufacturers study the production process and try to replace the cooking oil."

The watchdog has given the test results to the Centre for Food Safety for further action.
Shortening, margarine and refined vegetable oil were the main types of oil used in making cookies, the council's CEO, Gilly Wong Fung-han, said.
A study by the watchdog last year found glycidol and 3-MCPD in almost 20 types of margarine sold in Hong Kong.
Wong also said the government should source healthy ingredients at a lower cost so consumers can continue to enjoy their favourite snacks, particularly over the upcoming Lunar New Year festivities.
The World Health Organisation does not set a limit for the consumption of glycidol and acrylamide, but the council said members of the public should eat "as little as possible".
Based on standards set by the European Food Safety Authority, an adult weighing 60kg should only consume 120 micrograms of 3-MCPD per day, the council said.
Egg rolls made by Hong Kong company Yuen Long Wing Wah were found to have the highest traces of glycidol at 1,900 mcg/kg, followed by butter egg rolls by Yu Pin King at 1,700mcg/kg.
Of the 48 types found to contain acrylamide, the Quadruple Belgian Chocolate Cookie by British supermarket chain Sainsbury's contained the highest traces at 340mcg/kg. The egg rolls made by Yuen Long Wing Wah were also found to contain 580mcg/kg of 3-MCPD.
In response, the distributor for Yu Pin King, and Sainsbury's, said it had discontinued the egg rolls, but the Sainsbury's product met the standards set by the Hong Kong government.

https://www.tnp.sg/news/singapore/around-900-cancelled-their-bto-flat-bookings-2018


Replying to a question by Mr Faisal Manap (Aljunied GRC), Mr Wong said that the land cost for HDB home projects awarded in 2016 and 2017 was about 60 per cent of total development cost.

Other costs included construction, consultancy fees, financing and other project-related costs.

Mr Wong said that HDB's total development cost cannot be fully covered from the sale price of flats because the pricing of new flats follows the objective of keeping public housing affordable.

In the last three years, HDB has incurred an average annual deficit of about $1.14 billion per year for its Home Ownership Programme, he added.








I don't understand why taxpayers have to subsidize all these BTO flats

we should increase the price of flats to at least cover the cost ..... stupid government

The Ministry of Education (MOE) has said it will take action against an Instagram account which targets girls from junior colleges.

The account in question, SgJCBabes, was created last year and posts pictures of female students in uniform, accompanied by lewd captions.

Followers of the private page are encouraged to make inappropriate comments, which are then highlighted on its Instagram Stories.

At time of writing, the page has almost 2,000 followers and 13 posts.

Last December, the page moved to a new account with a similar handle.

https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/singapore/man-admits-to-stalking-ex-lover-posting-her-number-in-sex-ads-11120676

What started out as a brief relationship with a man she met at a parenting workshop turned into a nightmare for a woman who was stalked and harassed for months after she had left him.

Tay Ling Choon, 47, pleaded guilty on Monday (Jan 14) to stalking his ex-lover, whose identity is protected by a gag order.

He sent her hundreds of abusive messages, threatened to harm himself and posted graphic advertisements for sex which listed the victim's contact number.

Tay met the 40-year-old divorcee in November 2015 and the pair later started a sexual relationship, Deputy Public Prosecutor Lim Shin Hui told the court.

The victim ended the relationship in January 2016. Trouble began a month later, when Tay started sending her messages about committing suicide to "end his pain", the prosecutor said.

The woman blocked him on various messaging platforms including Facebook, WhatsApp, Viber and Line, but she could not block him from sending her SMSes or MMSes (multimedia messaging services).
