The court heard that Yong was placed in the nursing home under the Destitute Persons Act in 2011. He was able to go about his daily activities independently without requiring any prompting for meals or medication.

 ::) seriously? When will the State learn that it is far better to leave these old fellas to their own devices and remain destitute.

Why should taxpayers fund and bear the cost of his stay in a home, only to have him kill another resident  :o

I'll bet my last dollar that the scoundrel spent the last of his CPF monies on pei du mamas at Chinatown

Better increase CPF Life contribution rates to $600k so that he can look after himself instead of being a taxpayers burden  >:(

I loled at this  ;D

I hope Monica Baey notices me .... :-[

Oooooo .... grandstanding now huh?  ::) ::) ::)

PS:  she is still hot nonetheless... :-*


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... :-*

I think I prefer Monica Baey...  :-*

Despite my not seeing eye-to-eye with her internet lynching of Nicholas,  I think she is sexy and hot .... definitely floats my boat ... got more pics?

Yes,  let's hope she reflects on her actions.

Trial by social media shall always be synonymous with Monica Baey

In a lengthy statement on Instagram captioned “Closure”, National University of Singapore (NUS) undergraduate Monica Baey addressed the criticisms that she has received since going viral, called on trolls to stop harassing the peeping tom who filmed her and encouraged other victims of sexual crimes to speak up.

Ms Baey, 23, has been a national talking point since a week and a half ago, when a series of Instagram stories she posted went viral.

In them, she expressed her anger at the light punishment that had been meted out to a fellow student who had filmed her while she was showering at Eusoff Hall in NUS last November.

As the posts gained steam, her story was picked up by the media and sparked a public outcry.

In quick succession, NUS convened a review committee to relook its disciplinary and support frameworks and held a town hall for students, while Education Minister Ong Ye Kung criticised the penalties against the voyeur as being “manifestly inadequate”.

Other local universities also said they were stepping up safety and security measures on campus.

“This week has been incredibly tiring, yet probably the most fulfilling week of my life,” Ms Baey began her note.

“I can’t believe it. Change has finally come.”


Ms Baey wrote that while she has received a lot of supportive messages, she has also come across those who disagreed with what she did, and how she did it.

“I find that fair, because everyone is entitled to their own opinion,” she wrote.

Some of these critics, she said, are calling the voyeur who filmed her, Nicholas Lim, a victim himself, as he has faced harassment from the public since her posts went viral.

“All I will say in response to that is that I do genuinely hope he is receiving the proper support he needs to rehabilitate, and that the unnecessary online harassment towards him and his loved ones will stop,” Ms Baey said.

But she added: “I will stand by the fact that I do not owe it to him to keep his name private.”

She cited an earlier case, also at Eusoff Hall, in which an NUS undergraduate was caught filming a fellow student. He was temporarily suspended but later returned to the university and then molested a female undergraduate.

“Barely anyone outside Eusoff Hall knew his name, or that he was back on campus,” she said. “How many more names of perpetrators do we protect because of their family, future, their sob stories?”

In bold, she wrote: “I want my perpetrator to never hurt another person the way he hurt me. I want him to get better. I want  him to realise what he did was wrong through his punishment (that he is serving now), and realise how badly you can mess a person up just by filming them without their consent through rehabilitation and education.”

She added: “And I want potential perpetrators who are thinking about doing what he did to me to stop in their tracks and get help.”

Good to encourage older folks to work for longer. 

Dementia and alzheimer comes to those who retire early and laze around in Chinatown drinking kopi.  Not to mention easy prey for pei-du-mamas... an idle mind is the devil's playground

Confidence for the future yo!


  • 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.
