Singapore’s breathtaking headlines

These are the top headlines today:

1. Singapore composer is honored for his songs

2. High auto costs affect which insurance policies S’poreans buy

3. The prime minister will address the nation this weekend

4. Singapore nurses are playing a bigger role in health care

I am not making this up.

Now, if those stories don’t move earth and heaven I don’t know what will. And you wonder why I don’t blog as much as I used to?!

Well, you can’t blame the press. The moment something scandalous appears – government rebuttals are expected or paper shuts down.

Temasek Holdings has shares or stuff in SPH – I’m guessing!

Well, well, the effects of a homogenised society and education system. How exciting can news be?
To me, Singapore is like a mass production of labour.

Homogenised, pasteurised, refined and bleached, like American Wonder Bread, until any hint of spice or even flavor is neutralised. At least in Beijing there was always something for me to rail against. It’s as though Singapore were a big puddle of melted vanilla ice cream….

Okay, enough with the food metaphors.

Welcome to Singapore, Inc., where news is what your neighbour just ate for breakfast.

Here’s the latest headline (as always): Foreign Talent.
