SAF Not Open About Training Casualties, Says 61% SGreans Polled

In a poll commissioned by Yahoo News Singapore, it has been discovered that the majority of Singaporeans feel that the SAF have not been very transparent with training-related casualties, and they only come out and acknowledged something has happened if the accident became big news online.

Most of those surveyed also revealed that their confidence in the SAF training enlistees have somewhat eroded after the recent spate of training deaths. The survey was conducted in February this year, by market research consultancy Blackbox Research, and they surveyed 908 Singaporeans. 61% of those surveyed said that SAF is not transparent when it comes to training-related casualties news. Meanwhile an overwhelming 85% of the respondents replied that the spate of fatal accidents have affected their confidence in the SAF to varying degree.

SAF, it seems, have a lot of hard work ahead to restore the public’s faith in them in training their SAF personnel.

Are Young Couples Jumping Onto The BTO Bandwagon Too Soon?

First comes the proposal, then the wedding, and then the house. This was once the norm, but not anymore.

In Singapore, when you’ve been in a relationship for a reasonable amount of time, you can expect your partner to ask you one crucial question: “Want to BTO?”

Today, many couples apply for a BTO (Build-To-Order) flat before proposing. Marriage comes a little later, and it can happen before or after getting the keys to their home.

Logically, it makes more sense. It’s pragmatic, as the wait for a BTO can be (dreadfully) long. The completion of BTO projects can take around 2.5 to 5 years. And let’s face it. Getting a house in Singapore is stressful. In fact, it’s downright terrifying.

It doesn’t matter if you’re in a relationship or if you’re single, buying a house here is crazy expensive despite the various grants available. It’s also incredibly difficult because you’re competing with hundreds of other buyers bidding for the same flat you wish to get. And when you are getting something which you will most likely have to continue paying for for the next 20 to 30 years, you can expect everyone to ‘fight’ for their ideal choice.

This competitiveness for a BTO forces many young Singaporeans to commit themselves into a relationship when they may not exactly be ready.

THE PRESSURE TO FIND LOVE FASTER

Because of the amount of time it takes for you to successfully get the keys to your new home, it means having to find the person you are ‘meant to be witha lot faster.

I know of singles in their mid 20s who are still working on finding the right person to date, let alone have a relationship with.

Dating itself has become a more daunting task than before. From the get-go, we start thinking about whether we see a future with this person, because we no longer have time to spend on someone whom we’re not going to spend the rest of our lives with.

A lot of singles in their mid and late 20s go into their first date hoping that it’ll be their last first date. We’re no longer dating to date, but we’re dating for marriage. I’ve even heard a couple of my singles friends tell me, “I want my next boyfriend to be my last one.”

Sophia, 25 and single, shared how she goes into every first date subconsciously analysing everything about her date, to get a sense of whether she sees herself spending the rest of her life with him.

“First dates used to be about having a good night out while getting to know someone,” she shares. “Now I find myself thinking about stuff you’d usually only start thinking about after knowing someone for a couple of months like “Does he want kids?” and “How religious is he?””

As much as it stings for people like Sophia, who thought dating would be “fun” and “enjoyable”, buying a house in Singapore means having to think about our future a lot quicker.

It’s not a bad thing to date with the purpose of marriage of course, but it may not necessarily be a good thing to be bogged down by the practicalities of what is seemingly a talk for much later on. While applying for a BTO is a great way to get us to plan early for our future, it does, in a lot of ways, ruin romance.

IS OUR HOUSING SYSTEM A CURSE?

But it’s not just the singles who are stressed out. Couples are having to commit to the person they’re with a lot earlier in their relationship. And while that’s not exactly a problem, it does provide immense pressure to someone who’s not ready for the commitment, while their partner is.

No longer do we have ample time in our hands to enjoy the ‘honeymoon phase’ of a relationship. While there are the lucky few who stay with their school sweethearts for 10 years, a lot of us only find “the one” somewhere in our mid 20s.

But there are instances where despite having your lives planned out together, relationships simply don’t work out.

What happens when you have a BTO on your way, and you realise that you don’t want to be the person you’re with anymore?

I was surprised to find that there wasn’t a lack of post-BTO breakup stories within just my circle of friends.

Alvin, 27, went through a breakup with his girlfriend of 4 years after they had successfully balloted for their home last year. The breakup wasn’t his decision.

“She said that she didn’t see a future with me anymore and just needed to take some time for herself,” he shared. “It was later that I found out there was another guy.”

“I guess no matter how much you plan for something, sometimes life just kicks you in the nuts,” Alvin laughed.

With his life all planned out, a breakup was the last thing he had expected to happen.

“It’s not something I expected to happen, especially at this stage of my life where I thought I had my future all planned out,” Alvin continued.

What makes BTOs all the more scary are the implications that cancelling your application causes.

There’s no doubt that you end up forfeiting the money that you’ve invested, depending on how far along in the process you are.

You also lose your first-time applicant advantages, and if you want to apply for a BTO with your new love, or as a single, you have to wait at least a year to be able to do so.

“It sucks that the implications of forfeiting a BTO are so costly, literally,” Alvin says. “But at least it’s taught me to take my time and not rush into settling down with someone.”

Samantha, 25, whose boyfriend also broke up with her after applying for their BTO together, believes that a BTO is an expectation created by society.

“Instead of asking, “Proposed already ah?”, people ask, “BTO already ah?””, she shared. “Which I think gives couples a lot of pressure to get a BTO.”

It seems like we assume getting a BTO guarantees a relationship. But there rarely is ever a guarantee on anything.

“A lot of couples rush into getting a BTO because they think that might give them some ‘security’”, she shared. “But that shouldn’t be case, you should apply for a BTO because you’re secure about your relationship.”

SOMETIMES YOU JUST WORK THROUGH IT

It’s normal to feel unsure about your relationship and stumble onto rough patches along the way. The stress that comes with the BTO doesn’t help either. What was meant to be a significant part of a couple’s life, has become a stressful endeavour instead.

Couples who have successfully got their house have had their own share of rough patches along the way. But these couples found a way to set things on track to start building their future with their partners.

Mabel, 28, who has now secured her home through Sales of Balance (SFB) wasn’t sure if she was ready to commit to her boyfriend of 3 years before they applied for it in May 2018.

“I didn’t know if I was ready to commit,” she shared. “Because it’s not only about committing to a house, but committing to the rest of my life ahead of me.”

“Whenever we spoke about applying for a BTO, a part of me wanted it, but the other part was also scared.”

Today, Mabel and her fiancé have the keys to their house, and will be getting married in June.

“When I told my fiance about my fears, we talked about it and decided to make it work together,” she continued. “I saw his efforts in trying to make our relationship work and I just wanted to do the same.”

For Alexa, 25, applying for a BTO was a natural next step in their relationship. When they applied for their BTO, they had been together for 2 years and knew they were ready for the commitment.

It was only after they were successful in their ballot, Alexa’s relationship hit a rough patch.

“That ‘ready’ feeling became very different as we went through a seriously rough patch that really made us think if we should move forward,” she shared.

Like anyone else in her position, Alexa didn’t want to go through the hassle of withdrawing their application.

“There was definitely a lot of pressure because this was an investment we’d already gotten ourselves into.” she continued. “This really showed me that the BTO system can really be a burden.”

While in many ways, yes, having a BTO on the line does encourage you to make things work with your beau and give your relationship another chance, it’s doesn’t allow you to consider your relationship rationally.

“We considered the future of our relationship as if there was no BTO involved,” says Alexa. “Because we knew that if we let the BTO decide our future, we wouldn’t be happy.”

Today, Alexa and her boyfriend have managed to get past their rough patch and are eager to start their life together.

DON’T JUMP THE GUN

It’s normal to have the urge to jump on a bandwagon that everyone around you is on. We all want to have a great home by the age of 35. We all have a ideal ‘plan’ of where we want to be by the time we’re in our late 30s.

Despite being single for the past 2 years, Jason, at 27 still has no qualms about rushing into a relationship.

“I get that in Singapore, settling down with someone takes a lot more time. But I would much rather wait until 35 and get my bachelor pad, than get a BTO in an unsure relationship,” shares Jason. “Singlehood doesn’t scare me, being with the wrong one does.”

BTOs should be a mere stepping stone into the future you want to build, it shouldn’t be the foundation of it.

“Your future shouldn’t depend on getting a BTO,” says Alexa. “It’s better to be 30 and single than to be with someone you’re unsure about.”

SDP Election Promise: Cut Ministerial Pay, Tax Top 1% More, And Returning CPF Money In Full

The next general election is still not known yet when it will happen. But, as PAP moves towards sweetening the ground, opposition parties are also working hard to come out with their own election proposals. SDP is one such party to be making their case to Singaporeans to vote them into Parliament.

SDP had launched their election campaign back In February, and now they are back with some policy changes they will fight for. They focused mainly on the high cost of living, and cited the PAP’s promises to make the cost of living more affordable for Sinkies. SDP said that PAP had failed to deliver on their promises, and that PAP had in fact, increased more taxes such as GST and Water Tax in order to pay for Singapore’s spending. Listed are the things SDP would do in their policy changes:

– Doing away with GST on essential items, only GST on luxury goods
– Enacting minimum wage
– Reducing healthcare costs
– Lower HDB prices
– Returning CPF savings to account holders in full

SDP also said that they will get money for Singapore’s spending needs from the following sources:

– Cut Ministers’ pay to fund aid for poor
– Raise the income tax rate for the rich 1%
– Ensure a revenue-neutral budget
– Reinstate estate duty
– Stop “profligate” public spending

Let’s hope they finally succeed to have a representative or two in Parliament.

Cyclist Avoids Humiliation By Blaming Fall on Taxi, Bike Clearly Stuck In Drain

A cyclist, in his bid to avoid getting humiliated after falling off his bike, was seen on video blaming a taxi driver who was near his vicinity of the fall instead. In the video, the cyclist fell down hard onto the pavement, but it was clearly seen that his front wheel got caught on a drain cover by the road.

However, the video also showed that the cyclist started blaming a taxi driver who was quite near to where he fell, with the cyclist accusing the driver of coming too close to him, and pushing him over. The accident happened on March 18, along St Andrrew’s Road. The cyclist who was wearing blue was seen cycling on the road, with a yellow taxi just behind him. The cyclist had actually overtaken the taxi as it came to a halt at a traffic junction. Without the taxi actually moving, the cyclist was seen wobbling, and fell off his bike.

The cyclist obviously did not sustain any injuries as he got up and tried to blame the driver. But as everyone else had seen from the video, the cyclist clearly fell of his own accord, as he had overtaken a stationary taxi, and the taxi was not even moving between the time he overtook it and fell.

Learning from the best. If something unfortunate happens, always blame it on someone else. It was never your fault.
