Yesterday's Straits Times : Life is SWEET!


Yesterday's Straits Times (6 Oct 2005) is a classic. This one I'll put in a separate pile so that I won't accidentally sell to the kurang guni man. Starting from the fantastic headlines, "Great Singapore Sale rings up record $5B in Takings".....wow $5B - Singaporeans and the tourists really can shop 'til drop- the good news in S'pore goes on non stop until the back page. On the right side of the front page tenor Jose Carreras is in Singapore and all those Singapore women in expensive beautiful dresses surrounding him - life is good. Just below that report - COE has fallen to $11K and Singaporeans are all rushing to buy cars.

If you have any doubts that life is good in Singapore, read this copy of Straits Times.

As I read it cover to cover, I found that awful stuff is happening everywhere else in the world - of course there is the Bali Bombing that covered several pages, one article "What if hurricane hits New York", "New Orleans to lay off half its workers", "British Minorities isolated"....etc. I feel so fortunate to be in Singapore after reading all these articles. The news on dengue is shrinking I could hardly find it. Structural unemployment? Disappeared. Poor homeless Singaporeans? Don't exist. Yes. we are so lucky to be Singaporeans....
