    SINGAPORE - For four years, Chin Ming Lik used fake qualifications to get civil engineering jobs at 38 companies. The 49-year-old worked at each company for short periods of time between 2013 and 2017, and then moved on quickly to avoid suspicion. Among the documents he forged were a National University of Singapore (NUS) degree scroll, certificates from the Ministry of Manpower and Singapore Polytechnic, and a GCE A-level certificate. On Tuesday (March 5), Chin, whose actual highest academic qualification is the Primary School Leaving Examination, was sentenced to two years and 11 months' jail, and fined $1,600 for his offences. Deputy Public Prosecutor Tan Pei Wei told the court that the ruse came to light on Dec 2, 2016, when an assistant manager at NUS' Registrar Office received an NUS degree scroll with Chin's name for verification. As it did not match any of the records in the university's database, it was suspected to have been forged for employment application purposes, and the assistant manager lodged a police report. Chin was placed on a police stop list to assist with investigations, and on April 23, 2017, was arrested at Woodlands Checkpoint. He admitted during investigations to having forged multiple certificates for employment applications when he had not actually attended any of the courses. These included an NUS First Class in Civil Engineering degree scroll and a Building Construction Supervisors Safety Course Certificate supposedly from the Ministry of Manpower, both of which he had forged in or before January 2014. DPP Tan said: "He had heard that project managers in civil engineering drew good salaries and decided to forge the relevant certifications in order to obtain jobs in the field." In his resume, Chin falsely said he had 16 years of experience and to have previously worked for construction companies in Singapore. He managed to find jobs in which he earned up to $9,000 monthly. About two weeks before his offences were discovered, he applied for a job as project manager with CHL Construction using the same forged documents. He was offered the job, but turned it down as he considered the monthly salary of $7,500 too low. After his arrest, his apartment was searched, and the authorities found a forged GCE A-level certificate and Singapore Polytechnic Certificate of Attendance for a low-cost automation course. He had found copies of both certificates, belonging to other people, in previous jobs. He photocopied them, overlaid slips of paper with his details over the relevant fields, and then photocopied the certificates again to produce the forged documents. Chin also made a statutory declaration on Sept 9, 2015, to excuse his inability to provide original copies of the forged certificates submitted during job applications. It stated that he had misplaced 10 original certificates when he moved house, a statement he knew to be false, said DPP Tan. Other offences committed by Chin included not possessing a valid driving licence when he was stopped and arrested at Woodlands Checkpoint. He held only a provisional driving licence as he had been disqualified from driving since 1992, and was in the process of obtaining his licence again. He also admitted having driven four different cars without a valid licence in the past 10 years. In addition, he committed shop theft at an NTUC FairPrice outlet in Bedok North on Sept 19, 2017, while out on court bail for the forgery offences. In sentencing, District Judge Shaiffudin Saruwan said Chin had been previously sentenced to corrective training for other offences, but there had been "no rehabilitative effect". Therefore, he had to issue a sentence that serves as a deterrence. Defence lawyer James Ow Yong said in mitigation that Chin was "deeply remorseful for his actions". He added that Chin is the sole breadwinner of his family, which will bear the burden of his term of imprisonment.

    The Merdeka Generation Package (MGP) and its timing were a focus on day one of the Budget debate yesterday. Senior Minister of State Chee Hong Tat rebutted Workers' Party chief Pritam Singh's remark that some see the $6.1 billion set aside for those born in the 1950s as being timed to coincide with the election. Mr Chee said it was misleading to link the MGP - or the Pioneer Generation Package (PGP) unveiled in 2014 - to election cycles. The reason, he said, was that such schemes cannot be rolled out at the start of the Government's five-year term as surpluses need to be earned, accumulated and put aside to fund healthcare and other benefits. At the start of its term, the Government will not know how much surpluses it will accrue or how much it can set aside, he added. This is also part of "what a responsible government needs to do to ensure that our policies and programmes are financially sustainable for the current and future generations", he said. Some 500,000 Singaporeans will benefit from the Merdeka package, which includes subsidies for outpatient care, MediShield Life premiums and Medisave top-ups. Details of when these will be rolled out will be announced next week. Earlier in the debate, Mr Singh (Aljunied GRC) said people on the ground feel that the package helps seniors with their medical bills. "There are also quarters who conclude it is pungently timed with the election cycle, giving off the odour of an unfair advantage aimed at the electoral prospects of the PAP," he said. These words prompted Mr Chee to say pointedly: "I wonder why Workers' Party (WP) chose to use such an unpleasant description and to focus on politicising this tribute to our Merdeka Generation." He added: "The opposition calls for the Government to give more, and yet, when the Government gives more to help Singaporeans, the WP criticises the move as an election tactic. We can't have it both ways, please make up your mind and decide where you stand." The next general election must be held by April 2021, but many expect it to be called some time next year. People's Action Party backbencher Murali Pillai (Bukit Batok) also took on Mr Singh's remarks about the package's timing. Mr Murali said it is a "fortunate situation" that the Government is able to fund the package using the current reserves. "Members sometimes forget that whatever we budget for in this House does not define what will happen for the financial year," he said, noting that market circumstances would dictate whether there are sufficient resources. "To ascribe a political motive, to say that the MGP is timed for elections, really elevates the Government to a position of being a fortune teller." Mr Singh and fellow WP members Faisal Manap (Aljunied GRC) and Non-Constituency MP Daniel Goh also called for the Government to move beyond one-off benefit schemes like the MGP, towards a universal and permanent healthcare package for Singaporeans from the age of 60. In reply, Mr Chee said the MGP and PGP are on top of structural subsidies already provided for Singaporeans. Lower and middle-income citizens also get help with their MediShield Life premiums. A total of 27 MPs spoke on a broad range of economic and social issues. Labour MPs, in particular, focused on how to improve the lives of Singaporean workers amid technological disruption. MPs also raised concerns over cuts to the foreign worker quotas for companies in the service sector. Mr Chee, speaking in his Trade and Industry portfolio, noted that the move would cause some pain, but said it was better to act now to secure jobs for citizens. The debate resumes today, and Finance Minister Heng Swee Keat will respond to MPs' comments tomorrow. https://www.straitstimes.com/politics/merdeka-package-not-timed-for-election-chee-hong-tat

    Yes I have a Wacom Intuos Manga, cost me S$170 few years ago. I find it not very accurate, have to zoom in often and it hurts my hand to keep redrawing and redrawing until the lines fit correctly. Last Friday I just bought a $2 Daiso stylus and downloaded a free Sony Sketch app to try drawing on my handphone: The stylus has conductive fibre tip which is smooth but a bit slippery. Again the stylus is not accurate but at least the line is below the pen direct and using the app it is easy to redraw at the touch of a button and two finger pinch to zoom or reposition.

    Freegan Daniel Tay picking discarded food, minimalist Ohara Henri picking wild veggies and the infamous Sanhe Deities eating plain steam buns and drinking plain water - what do they have in common? Yes, they are all guys. Only men can live like this. Women just want MONEY MONEY MONEY.

    The one thing they do right is to use gears as hinge and hide the hinge. Just look at the chinese flexible phone prototypes, the hinge design is like playing with a flexible ruler, lacked of precision.
