New app to pair maids with NS enlistment slots, reservist call-up duty

New app to pair maids with NS enlistment slots, reservist call-up duty

Tags: ,


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

my-maid-our-army-app

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.

That is the goal, they believe.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who think conspiratorially, have looked at one another with a side glance and nodded knowingly.

This after they came to the enlightened realisation that shit posting kingpin Amos Yee did everything he could have done to get out of serving his National Service stint.

This after the 18-year-old who was due for NS call-up, has been successfully granted political asylum in the United States.

One Singaporean, Hock Kian Peng, who served as a store man during NS because he always has an unexplained pain in his knee and reports sick often to get Attend C from the Medical Officer, said: “I have seen all kinds of things before when I went to report sick, but this one, this one is special.”

“This kind is confirm chao keng. Keng until to the max. Keng until Medical Board. Keng until Pes F. Like that you think got any unit dare to let him handle rifle?”

“There is really no other explanation that can account for this behaviour. This one seems hell bent on something else altogether. Not just normal deliquency, not just truancy or sexual frustration.”

“And this one seems too well-planned.”

“If he pulls it off, he will be the most chao keng kia in Singapore’s history of chao keng kias.”

If not, no way to judge their character.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who judge other people by their character, are applauding ex-Singaporean males who evaded National Service.

This after they believe Singaporean Sons who skip the country to go overseas to avoid being called up for NS must be from good families.

One Singaporean, Zao Lor, said: “These days got more and more Singaporeans come from good families. Like from a family with a lawyer.”

“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, you won’t be punished so severely.”

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

Another local, Cheong Sua, said: “Those Singaporeans 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.”

Vocations to suit needs of soldiers.

Pre-enlistees entering national service in 2017 will be able to express their interest in what vocations they will like to serve in.

This is the first time an initiative like this has been offered to full-time national servicemen.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who believe not all NS vocations are created equal because Man is not all cut from the same cloth, said they applaud this move.

One Singaporean, Peh Beh, said: “This will allow the system to be more transparent as sons of important parents can straightaway indicate they want to be White Horse.”

“Then there is no need to do it in a circuitous manner where people have to hide the fact that they are White Horses.”

Other locals said safeguards must still be in place to help protect this system from abuse.

Another local, Luan Luan Lai, said: “If someone who obviously cannot be a White Horse indicates that he wants to be a White Horse by trying to fake his way through, then he will be punished for impersonation and forgery.”

“As punishment, he must be sent to the Naval Diving Unit or Commando unit to rough it out for two years to deter others from doing the same.”

He can do more.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who think conspiratorially, have looked at one another with a side glance and shook their head collectively.

This after they came to the enlightened realisation that teenage anarchist Amos Yee might not be doing enough to get out of serving his National Service stint.

This after Yee posted a video on his own YouTube channel alleging he was assaulted at Jurong Point. This follows news that he is going on trial to faces eight new charges for his online antics barely a year after he was jailed the first time.

The 17-year-old, who is out of school, will most likely be due for NS call-up soon.

One Singaporean, Hock Kian Peng, who served as a store man during NS because he always has an unexplained pain in his knee and reports sick often to get Attend C from the Medical Officer, said: “I have seen all kinds of things before when I went to report sick, but this one, this one is special.”

“And this one seems too well-planned.”

“If he pulls it off, he will be the most chao keng kia in Singapore’s history of chao keng kias.”

“But alas, the military will still call him up to serve NS because he is still not doing enough.”

Mothers have issued a statement saying they are deeply sorry.

ns-enlistment

Singaporean mothers from all walks of life, who have sons going to serve or are serving National Service, have come out to apologise to the Singapore Armed Forces and the Ministry of Defence.

This after they said they understand how troublesome it feels for SAF and Mindef to have to take care of their NS-enlisting and enlisted sons and blamed themselves for causing this state of affairs to happen.

One mother, Dui Bu Qi, said: “I’m sorry, SAF and Mindef. It is my fault that my son has a preexisting condition that has not been diagnosed and declared.”

“If anything bad befalls him during training, it is most certainly my fault and his fault for being genetically-predisposed to ailments and not making his health conditions clearer to you all.”

“And as a result, he cannot defend his country properly.”

Other parents said they want to personally apologise to all the SAF regulars who are in charge of the full-time national servicemen serving NS.

Another mother, Zhen Bao Qian, said: “I’m sorry, commanders. Because I gave birth to a son, you all have been given this unwanted responsibility of ensuring he makes it out of training alive and in one piece.”

“If only other mothers and I gave birth to daughters, none of this responsibility would have been placed on your broad, IPPT-enhanced, rank insignia-laden shoulders.”

“And we’re sorry my son was being born in Singapore and as a result you all need to take care of him for two years to make sure he doesn’t die.”

“Truly sorry.”

SAF and Mindef must use Majulah power.

He declared he was allergic to physical exertion during medical check-up.

national-service-first-day-600px

A full-time national serviceman was unable to complete more than five push-ups in a row.

This after he suffered an unforeseen allergic reaction to physical exertion.

The NSF, Recruit Boh Lat, said he had alerted doctors during his medical check-up before enlistment hoping it will warn them to take preemptive action: “My inability to endure exercise is an unforeseen allergic reaction to being shouted at constantly and made to follow multiple orders, while feeling physically and mentally taxed, throughout the course of a day.”

“Previously, before enlisting into NS, I had tried this thing called ‘working out’ as I heard about it and was recommended by others to try it.”

“But it was not to my body’s liking as I broke out in sweat profusely, had a shortness of breath and I experienced this uncomfortable burning sensation in my muscles several days afterwards — all signs which point to severe impairment in the long run, and eventually, premature death.”

“After further investigation and trying exercise another time, I could confirm it to be the cause of all my bodily ailments.”

“To be upfront about my condition, I listed ‘push-up’ and ‘pull-up’ as things I am allergic to when I went for medical check-up, but my declaration on the medical form was not acknowledged.”

“I am afraid at this rate I am carrying on in NS, I might get severely injured or worse, lose more weight.”

At press time, NSFs experiencing allergic reactions to physical exertion are hoping PAP MP Janil Puthucheary can appeal on their behalf as he did not serve NS before and might be able to help.

Staying in HDB is like going for National Service, Khaw previously said.

Transport Minister Khaw Boon Wan has completed one ICT high-key cycle this morning.

This after he received his National Service call-up notification to take the MRT Circle Line with regular Singaporeans from all walks of life.

Khaw had said on MediaCorp’s Chinese-language station Capital 95.8FM live radio talk show in June 2015 that staying in a HDB flat for five years is like males serving NS for two years, which will help nation-building and interaction with the community.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, particularly those who have served NS for two years and who are staying in HDB flats all their lives, said they are excited to see Khaw on an MRT train.

One Singaporean, Cheng Hu Chu, said: “I have been serving NS my whole life. In fact, I have served NS twice: Once when I enlisted when I was 18 years old and I have been staying in a HDB flat ever since.”

“So that means I’ve done my reservist training twice also, in this case.”

“It is great to see ministers move into HDB flats, take MRT and serve NS with regular Singaporeans side-by-side and interact with the community.”

“Or else, ministers will not understand what commoners go through in their daily lives.”

“Because Bukit Timah bungalows don’t offer this kind of perspectives.”

S’poreans react to S’pore-born New Zealand teen who faces jail for avoiding national service call-up

S’poreans react to S’pore-born New Zealand teen who faces jail for avoiding national service call-up

Tags: , ,


Three thoughts that must have went past your mind at some point.

new-zealand-teen-national-service

A 19-year-old teen born in Singapore but moved to New Zealand when he was eight is seeking an exemption from national service.

Singapore authorities have demanded that Brandon Smith, who lives in the city of Dunedin, report for a pre-enlistment medical screening.

If he fails to comply, he faces a two-year jail term and a $10,000 fine when he re-enters Singapore.

Smith, who holds dual citizenship and can only renounce his Singapore citizenship when he turns 21, said spending two years doing NS was “difficult and pointless”.

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:

 

sian-half-auntie “This doesn’t live up to the New Zealand haka warrior warmongering spirit.”
Da Zhan, 43-year-old frying pan salesperson

 

sian-half-uncle “He is already showing that he is not a true blue Singaporean as he don’t know how to malinger.”
Chao Keng, 63-year-old wound dresser

 

happy-bird-girl “This shows Singapore’s flexibility in handling the situation, giving him a choice between never coming back or going to jail.”
Xuan Zhe, 17-year-old survey administrator

Male Singaporeans and Singapore permanent residents born between Jan. 1, 1999, and April 30, 1999, will be liable for National Service this year.

National Service registration this year will be conducted between Jan. 13 and Feb. 2, 2016.

Those affected, who will be at least 17 years old, may register online at www.ns.sg or at the Central Manpower Base (CMPB) Podium at 3 Depot Road.

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:

 

sian-half-auntie “Cannot smoke, cannot vote and cannot buy house. But can carry weapon and train for war.”
Zuo Bing, 43-year-old seamstress

 

sian-half-uncle “Death, taxes and National Service are the surest things in life.”
Mah Tee, 63-year-old casket maker

A National Service call-up notification alert has been sent National Development Minister Khaw Boon Wan.
