IN a landmark moment for the political landscape in Malaysia, a bipartisan consensus has been reached in the form of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on Transformation and Political Stability. MCA lauds and pledges our full support to this historical inking of political cooperation in a bid to move beyond politics, and commit the resources on both sides of the divide to the singular purpose of the betterment of Malaysian lives amidst this pandemic era. The MoU reflects the aspirations of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob to create a Malaysian Family (Keluarga Malaysia), and is in line with the decree of Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri'ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah for the Members of Parliament (MPs) to set aside personal agendas and practise consensus democracy through unity and togetherness for the sake of the nation’s future.

After a long string of lockdowns, what was once BBR by Alain Ducasse has emerged refreshed from its hiatus. Set in Raffles Hotel Singapore, Osteria BBR remains the brainchild of this legendary French chef, but the spotlight has shifted from broadly Mediterranean fare to a focus on the Italian Riviera.

Follow us on Telegram for the latest updates: https://t.me/mothershipsg During his closing speech in Parliament on Tuesday (Sep. 14), Finance Minister Lawrence warned members of the Progress Singapore Party (PSP) not to draw "simplistic policy conclusions" from data alone, as Singapore's workforce situation is far more complex than it may seem. The Parliament session was unusual due to its length; it lasted over 13.5 hours, with the bulk of the time spent on debating a motion about securing Singaporeans' jobs and livelihoods, which was tabled by Wong. This motion was tabled after PSP's Leong Mun Wai's motion on Singapore's foreign talent policy, with a particular focus on the Comprehensive Economic Cooperation Agreement (CECA), Singapore's free trade agreement (FTA) with India. Jobs vacated by foreigners may not automatically go to Singaporeans Wong began by responding to some of the points that were brought up earlier by the two PSP members, Leong and Hazel Poa. ... » Learn More about ‘Where are we going to find all the S’poreans, everybody wants more’: Lawrence Wong on labour demands
Like it or not, Valentine's Day is right around the corner. Although the holiday gets a bad rep from both people in relationships ("It's so cheesy!") and those who aren't (cue the eye rolls or unwanted feelings of loneliness), I have to admit, for me, it's a good reminder of the importance of putting in the effort to actively show love. And this Valentine's Day, in honour of that, I plan to do something I realise I've never actually done before: I'm going to buy flowers for my boyfriend of six years. Now, before you assume that I'm a horrible girlfriend who doesn't get her boyfriend gifts, let me explain. The fight When my boyfriend and I were in our first two years of dating, he'd sometimes buy me a flower here or there. It wasn't very often, because we both preferred buying the other person food or chocolate instead (I mean, flowers don't exactly make for a tasty snack). I wasn't a big fan of flowers, because, well, I just didn't see the point of them. They felt so ... » Learn More about 6 years into our relationship, I decided to buy my boyfriend flowers for Valentine’s Day because why not?

AS feedback for Budget 2022, I suggest that financial institutions give full loans (100% end-financing) to purchasers of property priced below RM1mil. This would help to stimulate the sluggish property market due to the prolonged movement control order since the outbreak of Covid-19 and also combat the practice of marking up the property’s transaction price. In conventional practice, the “90% loan margin from market value for first and second housing loan, 70% for third loan...” is no longer relevant, as it can easily be circumvented by marking up the selling price of the property. Marking up is done when the sale and purchase (S&P) agreement price is purposely adjusted to a price that’s higher than the actual value to help the buyer secure a property without using their own money. Marking up has become a common practice among loan consultants, bankers and solicitors in order to stay competitive. They would “shop” for an adjusted and fake market value to fulfil their ... » Learn More about Consider giving full loans for property below RM1mil
