This is to further tap on an already existing resource in Singapore.

A new app made in Singapore is offering a value-added service to pair maids up with available slots for National Service enlistment and reservist call-up duty.

This latest app, called GrabMaid, aims to match demand and supply frictionlessly by tapping on maids, an existing pool of resource already in abundance in Singapore.

GrabMaid founder, Qu Zuo Bing, said: “Maids have been part of the decisive force. We have seen them in Singapore do everything from carrying equipment when soldiers book out to cleaning and maintaining gear such as ironing uniforms and polishing boots.”

“Therefore, National Service is an institution that has all along trained maids to play a vital role in maintaining Total Defence.”

“The next logical step is to tap this invisible but vital resource and let them enlist into NS and also go for in-camp training.”

Singaporeans from all walks of life who think National Service is a vital part of Singapore, said it is time for Singapore to acknowledge the contribution of maids to National Service efforts.

Hen Gan Dong, a local, said: “I know that Singapore is in safe hands if our maids serve NS and reservist.”

“If maids can take care of our bags, they can take care of the country.”

At press time, the start-up founder said that in the event of war, they are still working on ways to mobilise all maids immediately in the MR, also known as Maids Reserve.

 

 

 

 

 

 





Maid abusers in S’pore come from good families

If not, no way to judge their character.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who judge other people by their character, are applauding convicted maid abusers in Singapore.

This after they heard maid abusers who prey on their domestic helper must be from good families.

One Singaporean, Jin Zek Ark, said: “These days got more and more people in Singapore come from good families. Especially those who abuse their maids and end up in court, must be from good families.”

“If you are not from a good family, you won’t break the law.”

“Only if you are from a good family, you will break the law.”

“Then when you tell people you from good family, they will know you didn’t mean to break the law on purpose.”

Other locals said the leading cause of breaking the law is coming from a good family.

Another local, Fan Fa, said: “Those who come from good families are usually low profile.”

“They must make themselves more prominent and recognised and raise their profile.”

“So, breaking the law is an ideal way to let other people know you come from a good family.”

 

 

 

 

 

 





S’poreans appeal for mandatory death penalty for couple who starved maid as deterrent sentence

It will deter them from harming a future maid.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who are typically pro-life and meek most of the time, have come out to appeal for the mandatory death penalty to be applied in a rare show of bloodlust.

This after they read that a Singaporean couple living in an Orchard Road condominium had starved their 40-year-old Filipino domestic helper for a year and three months starting in January 2013, by feeding her only bread and instant noodles and causing her to weigh 29kg at the time of he escape.

One Singaporean, Wai Lao, said the only way to prevent future incidents like this is to act authoritatively: “The authorities need to hand out a deterrent sentence to make sure the couple will not offend again in such a similar fashion.”

“Passing the mandatory death sentence would be appropriate as a form of deterrence.”

However, not all Singaporeans are comfortable with such a morbid antediluvian form of punishment.

Another local, Bian Tai, said: “Killing people for their wrongs is not the way a civilised society should carry out its affairs in the name of justice.”

“Singapore should focus on rehabilitation, which is why I suggest the Singaporean couple must be forced fed with bread and instant noodles through their anus for one year.”

“That would be a more civilised and gentle alternative to hanging by their necks until they die.”

 

 

 

 

 











Manhunt on for full-time National Serviceman and maid involved in photo, blogger alleges

Manhunt on for full-time National Serviceman and maid involved in photo, blogger alleges

This is the footpath off Bedok Rise used by the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) soldier, believed to be a full-time National Serviceman (NSF), and a woman carrying a fullpack, believed to be his domestic helper, who appeared in that iconic image. To the right of this footpath is the public housing estate which is home to an NSF who made headlines in 2007, Dave Teo. Photo and caption: DAVID BOEY

PLAINCLOTHES officers believed to be from the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) combed a housing estate in Bedok on Saturday (2 April’11) for the individuals in the infamous picture of a maid carrying a fullpack – but failed to find their targets.

The officers gathered along Bedok Rise, which is near the Tanah Merah MRT station, for a quick debrief yesterday evening and were observed by this blogger. The group stood out in the quiet estate because I have seen police surveillance teams in action and somehow sensed the group did not fit in with the streetscape.

One officer was overheard updating an unnamed party via mobilephone that there were x targets for the day and the maid at one premises was not in.

What gave the game away was an A4 size colour photocopy of two pictures in a local newspaper story that compared the real picture with a fake image of the anonymous soldier, believed to be a full-time National Serviceman (NSF), and a woman whom netizens believe is his domestic helper. Pictures in the 90C story were enlarged and printed in portrait format, possibly to serve as a handy reference for the officers. (By uncanny coincidence, I used the same picture as reference but saved an image of the newspaper article on my mobilephone. I felt it was more discrete as observers would think I was checking my SMS messages whenever I looked at the image on the phone.)

Leticia Bongnino, the celebrity maid from The Noose, was behind it all along.

We found this photo circulating on Facebook, and decided to share it with you guys:

Compare this with the original:

The similarities are uncanny!

If you’ve been in Timbuktu all this while, here’s a brief on what happened: A photo depicting a maid carrying the backpack of a National Service man was published on Stomp. The photo created a furore online, and the Singapore Armed Forces even had to issue a response saying they will investigate the matter.

But now that this new revelation has come to light, it should silence the debate.
