This is exactly what HSA does - post market surveillance.

Unfortunately it is only picking up issues after the fact or when something bad happens/adverse reactions from consumers.


They could go to a stricter pre-registration before sale regulatory regime but this would kill a lot of carousell and on-line sellers by making it onerous for their business

"D" is for Delicious ....  :P

Which is why anyone can declare anything, pay admin fee, and hv it on shelf until someone consumes it and lodge a complain den start to check and recall...

Best is sudden batch inspection ..

That's y I only purchase brands which hv been existent for many many years

never buy any such products from online. I remember there was a advertisement about that, mediacorp should have post this advertisement often to remind people about it and having lots of advertisement pasted in public.

On shelf too, stricter regulatory framework

Like I said countless times,  no one is born gay.  It is an untruth perpetuated by Hollywood and those civil libertarians on those dumb enough to believe their lies.... :-[

Use local context la, this Allan degenerates dunno is xiang lai eh   :-X

Don't be silly,  I just stated a fact and pointed to Ellen DeGeneres as an example to back up a fact - admitted on TV no less.  And you tell me some hearsay about a friend of a friend etc ....  ::) .... I can argue citing hearsay about friends of friends of friends as counterpoint but I won't obfuscate with such baseless arguments.

I think the point about dealing with psychological pain is to go to the root of the pain or trauma.  Addressing it is the first of many steps to healing.

LGBTQ+ persons are victims.  Their sexual leanings are the results of trauma.  Such behaviours are conditioned and learned.  True healing comes from confronting their demons.  No one is born gay.  Be discerning about what you hear and see on Hollywood.

Broken families begat broken families.  you don't heal by marrying and praying for the best, but first by being a better partner yourself.  You can only do that if you heal yourself first.

U didn't read news recently? It's on news... ??? Nvm lol.  :P I didn't think u will miss out any gay news ...

Chit Chat Corner / How many scammers are there in this news story?
« on: May 30, 2019, 03:37:11 am »
SINGAPORE - A part-time English teacher met a man online and he convinced her into allowing $50,030 to be deposited into her bank account.

The man, known only as Collins, did not tell Christina Cheong Yoke Lin that the money was the proceeds of a love scam perpetrated on another woman.

Cheong felt suspicious but did not alert the police when he told her to pass $50,000 to "one of his boss' associates".

Instead, she ignored Collins' instructions and decided to keep the money for herself. The 63-year-old Singaporean pleaded guilty on Wednesday (May 29) to dishonestly misappropriating the cash.

The court heard that she knew Collins through an online dating platform, Badoo, in early August 2017. She told him that she was in debt and he then asked if she would allow his boss' associates to make use of her bank accounts.

Deputy Public Prosecutor Ng Jun Chong said: "Collins explained that the accused could take $500 out of each transaction and bring the rest of the money to Johor Baru, Malaysia.

"After asking why the money could not be paid directly into his boss' account, and if she would get into trouble for carrying 'lots of money', the accused agreed to 'try out' the arrangement."

The court heard that a 54-year-old victim of a love scam transferred $50,030 to Cheong's bank account on Aug 17, 2017. Collins then told Cheong to pass $50,000 to one of his boss' associates but she decided to keep the money.

DPP Ng said: "From Aug 18 until Aug 27, 2017, Collins asked the accused repeatedly about the money but the accused kept making excuses and ignoring his WhatsApp voice calls.

"Finally, on Aug 27, 2017, Collins fell out with the accused and called her a 'thief' via WhatsApp... Thereafter, the accused ignored several WhatsApp messages and voice calls from Collins before blocking him."

On Aug 21, 2017, Cheong transferred $31,000 to a Malaysian bank account as she wanted to help another man with whom she was in love with.

However, the man, known only as Mark Anthony, was also a scammer who had told her that he was purportedly detained by the Malaysian authorities.

The DPP said: "As for the remaining $19,000, from Aug 18 to Sept 4 , 2017, the accused spent $1,000 on her own expenses and transferred the remainder to various foreign bank accounts over several occasions pursuant to the instructions of one 'Chong Lee', who had promised to give the accused $800,000 for her help as part of an inheritance scam."

Cheong was caught after the 54-year-old Singaporean woman linked to Collins' love scam alerted the police on Sept 22 that year. Court documents did not state the outcome of the case involving Collins.

Defence lawyer Yu Kexin told the court on Wednesday that Cheong has made full restitution.

Ms Yu urged District Judge Ng Peng Hong to call for a report to assess her client's suitability for a mandatory treatment order (MTO), saying that Cheong was suffering from major depressive disorder when she committed the offence.

Offenders given an MTO have to undergo treatment for their mental condition in lieu of jail time. Judge Ng has called for the report and Cheong, who was offered bail of $25,000, will be back in court on June 26.

For dishonestly misappropriating the money, she can be jailed for up to two years and fined.

I can't seems to find one that has simple setup without drilling a hole in the ceiling  :-\

Can find online but most likely not approved by hdb.
Oh wait u talking abt ceiling recorder not noise generator.

Think you can engage our in-house hynotherapist he can maybe treat your phobia of noise made by your neighbour. Because even if you record won't hv any guaranteed reduced noise in future.

My childhood royally f**ked up my mental health. I’d like to state upfront that my parents weren’t my main caregivers. I mean, they paid for everything but didn’t feature much in my life whilst growing up. My grandmother raised me and she was a walking nightmare.


I was born with a learning disability for math/anything math-related (visual perception difficulties+spectrum dyscalculia) but I excelled in the humanities. I did pretty well and attended top schools (including a premier junior college and the National University of Singapore) but this was never good enough for my grandma. She always called me stupid, compared me to other people and demeaned my achievements. I was a recipient of the MOE Humanities scholarship back in JC and my grandmother was the only one in my family to mock me for it. She insisted that the whole thing was a fluke and that I was only awarded the scholarship because she prayed to God and therefore He gave it to me. I had home tuition in order to improve my math and science grades; on too many occasions my grandma would literally walk in halfway during lesson and instruct the tutor to give me more math homework because I was “lazy”. She never once went easy on me and would constantly scream at me for my “terrible” math grades (for crying out loud I consistently achieved solid As/Bs from secondary school all the way till JC which I was pretty proud of given my disabilities). She would go on a rant about how disabilities are fake and that I was just plain lazy. She even yelled at me during the rare instance when I brought home an A for math because that A was typically a low distinction. Even now, she’ll demean any As I score in university if they happen anywhere below 80. I once got an 87 for my mid term; ever since she believed that attaining anything below an 80 meant I wasn't sufficiently hardworking. She used to slap me if I ever dared to defend myself or “defy” her wishes.


Not to mention that she was (and still is) incredibly overprotective. She didn’t let me take public transport on my own until I was 13 years old and even then, if I didn’t arrive home by a certain time (an hour after my classes ended), she would go berserk. She used to feed me until I was about 15 years old. I would obviously tell her to stop but she’d just ignore me. She STILL personally applies dermatological creams onto my skin because apparently, I am too retarded to apply them myself. I have mild eczema and she obviously blames me for my condition.

Why would u believe in your grandma?
Believe in yourself n this problem is imaginary because you placed wrong trust in your caregiver.
