The daft Australians must learn from Singapore
‘Australian prime minister plans to reduce immigration, citing urban crowding
Prime Minister Scott Morrison of Australia has proposed that the government impose stricter limits on immigration to control overcrowding in the country’s major cities. Population growth has played a major role in the country’s economic success, but people in Australia’s biggest cities are alarmed about an influx of immigrants, Mr Morrison said. “They are saying: enough, enough, enough,” he said. “The roads are clogged, the buses and trains are full. The schools are taking no more enrollments.”’

The above is quoted from Todayonline. The Australians are hysterical over the growing number of immigrants adding to the population of their cities. Can you believe that? A continent nation with cities that are sparsely populated compare to Singapore, they are calling for a ban on immigration? Don’t they want growth, don’t they want progress and better quality of life?
The problem is that they did not know how to manage big cities with big population. Singapore should send out experts to down under and teach them how good big population is and how each Australian city can easily accommodate a 10m population.
Australia must learn from Singapore in bringing more and more population to increase economic growth. And the better immigrants are those from third world countries with their special talents that Australia does not have, never mind which universities or if their degrees are from degree mills. No degrees also can, as long as they can work, be they calling themselves as doctors, engineers, scientists, professors, as long as they can do the job, the papers got or no do not matter.
If Australia is to follow what Singapore is doing, with its continent size country, Australia can easily take in another 100m immigrants and become really a big country and a super power. No need to pretend that it is a big power when it is not, with a meagre population of 23m, less than the population of Malaysia.
The Australian govt should simply throw the question back to the complaining and daft Australians. Do you want growth, do you want a better life? The answers must be yes and therefore bringing in more immigrants is the only way to go about it. QED.
If they don’t believe this, come to Singapore and see how we squeezed in 6m people in this piece of rock and still bringing in more, and there is no problem of overcrowding. We have work for several million foreigners. And they contributed to our growth and created work for Singaporeans as well. Our infrastructure and public transport system are running as smoothly as they are built to be. And we can continue to build more homes to sell to the foreigners. How nice.
And where got Singaporeans saying, enough, enough, enough? Singaporeans are crying for more, more, and more. Some even suggesting 10m or 15m or more. And this is the reason why Singapore is so prosperous, so rich, now so rich in culture from all over the work, including viruses and bacteria in the air. And exposing to them would make Singaporeans stronger with better immunity.
Did the Australians know that this little Red Dot on the surface of the earth has one quarter the population of the Australian continent and wanting more? Soon Singapore will have a population half the size of Australia, if the great thinkers and planners have their way.

Wildlife went on a rampage in Sin City
Almost seven years ago, 4 wildlife went on a rampage in this very safe and very low crime city state. Four Sarawakians turned this peaceful and safe city into a night of violence. They attacked pedestrians on their way home near a MRT station in Kallang, slashing and robbing them in full view of people around them as if it was a free for all in a jungle. The clueless pedestrians did not see it coming, stunt and were mercilessly taken down, defenceless and did not know how to react.
The scene could be the same as the hapless pet birds in cages hanging outside the windows of HDB flats when attacked by the hornbills. It was something out of the normal. Who could expect the hornbills to be so audacious and lawless, to think that it was alright to eat the pet birds for lunch? Who would ever think that the foreigners here to work, to make good money to send home, would turn violent against the peaceful, friendly and carefree Singaporeans just living their normal life?
The last wildlife, Donny Meluda, was sentenced to 33 years life imprisonment for a supporting role in the violent attack and robbery on a peaceful night in Sin City. Two of the wildlife were convicted for murder. Michael Garing who wield a parang during the slashing crime was sentenced to life imprisonment. Tony Imba, the leader, also got life imprisonment and 24 strokes of the rottan. Another, Hairee Landak, was also given 33 years of life imprisonment and 24 strokes of the cane.
During the slashing attack, one victim was killed and another 3 seriously injured with a NSman losing several fingers, with half of his palm chopped off. The dead victim was brutally stabbed and slashed all over his body, his head and neck and died on the spot.
The High Court judge had this to say about the attack. It was ‘likened to a safari hunt.’
What is the moral of this violent crime by the wildlife? Do not think wildlife are peaceful, friendly and harmless. There is wildness in wildlife. Be careful, be very careful when dealing with wildlife or close to wildlife. Singaporeans are so comfortable with the safe and almost sanitized environment and have taken safety and security for granted. They have let down all their guards against wildlife and would regret only when it happened to them directly, or too late.
Be alert all the time. Recently some young children were bitten by the otters in the Marina area. Just keep a safe distance from them. You would not know when they would strike. I am astonished at how comfortable Singaporeans are in inviting wildlife into their homes.
On the other hand today’s newpaper has a good coverage of otters being witnesses to a marriage proposal and otters having a siesta in Marina Bay. It seems that news of otter’s presence in little Red Dot has gone viral. The otters have grown familiar with the locals and growing more confidence to be seen around people.
Would they be culled just like the wild boars and wild chicken when their number grew too big? Would they run riot and attack the hapless and timid locals that have lost their instinct to defend themselves against wildlife? Or would they chase out the locals and turn the little Red Dot into Otterpore, a paradise for wildlife?

SOS -Save Our Seniors, Spare Our Seniors

Save the world, save the dogs and cats…but don’t bother about the seniors.
Every kind hearted souls are calling for saving mother earth, saving animals from extinction, saving the dogs and cats and the wild boars. I am waiting for some kind souls to talk about saving and protecting our seniors. No one knows that the seniors must be saved? No one knows that the seniors are struggling to survive with little or no money, or a little savings in their CPF?
Are the seniors more important or the animals more important to deserve some attention from those that really care or pretending to care?
In this most expensive city of the world, when cost of living keeps going up, prices and fees/fares going up, how can the seniors survive when they are either jobless, retired or with little savings? To make matter worse, many are plagued by various forms of age related illnesses that they are unable to pay for medical care. And some have to depend on expensive supplements with prices going up and up to live.
For goodness sake, whenever there is any increase in fares/fees/charges, medicine and supplements, food, do not simply lump the seniors together, to share some of the increases no matter how small are the increases. The seniors simply have no income and trying to make ends meet with whatever that is left in their savings.
And please, have some mercy, and stop taking from the little money left in the seniors’ CPF accounts. No matter what reasons, how good, how caring, how meaningful, how insuring and assuring, don’t touch the seniors’ savings. They cannot afford them. Every cent, every dollar is needed to survive, to pass the day, one day at a time. It is evil and wicked to have designs on the little savings of the seniors. It is not compassionate to keep raising fares/fees and make the seniors pay for them. The seniors do not need anymore insurance schemes that robbed their CPF savings. They are waiting to die and everyday is a bonus.
Freeze further fare/fee increases and spare the seniors from them. Can understand this or not? Many seniors have no money left and they have 20 or 30 years still to live. Where is the mercy, where is the compassion? Treat the seniors a little better than the animals, please. Save our Seniors for goodness sake. Spare Our Seniors from the robbers.
