Claims of Singapore's economic woes purely anecdotal

"For more accurate news, read the Straits Times" edition

Today morning, a position for a presenter for a small radio station drew more than 50 hopefuls.

Yours truly didn't get past the voice test.

However, I did talk to the girl beside me. She, an engineering graduate, had been working as a kitchen staff in a restaurant for months before she quit out of disgust for the low pay.

Singapore's students are the world's best in mathematics and science, but that still can't get them jobs.

Meanwhile, I'll say nothing - NOTHING - about the recently complete farce of a debate over the casino in Parliament, since MiniLee said the matter is not open to referendum, voting, or debate.
