Singaporean Advocates The Killing Of Children

Calvin Cheng, a former Nominated Member of Singapore’s Parliament, recently commented on his Facebook that children of ISIS terrorists should be killed along with their parents “in case” the children grow up to take revenge.

Do you agree with his views? Personally, I believe that when you fight against terrorists, it is kill or be killed, but I feel strongly that we should not even entertain the idea of killing children just because they MIGHT grow up to take revenge. Read the rest of this entry

Is This The Right Way To Handle Bullying?

Speaking as someone who was bullied at school and in the army, I say Rika’s way is the best way to handle bullying. Give them a beat down as soon as they start something, like what Rika did.

Guards Gone Wild!

I received my first assignment as a security guard way back in 1999, and continued to work in the industry over the next few years.

Then in 2003, I went abroad on a working holiday visa and only returned to Singapore in 2005. Between the date of my return and the latter part of 2009, I took a long break from the security industry. Because, why not?

I had seen a whole new world out there after all, so why should I resign myself to toiling for seventy-two hours per week in a thankless job? So I made plans, based on my work experience in the UK. Read the rest of this entry
