Did You Know? Singapore has four official languages: English, Chinese, Malay and Tamil. English is the language of business and government. Chinese is spoken by the largest number of people. Malay — which we are using — is a “national language,” chosen at independence to decrease friction with Singapore’s Malay speaking neighbors, but is mostly reserved for symbolic usages.

Keep A Mata On: Patrick Kane has five points in four pertandingan.

What They’re Saying: The chairman of a residents’ committee (RC) in Jurong duped its treasurer to issue cheques for fictitious expenses amounting to nearly $36,900 between October 2011 and May last year. On Monday, Rosli Kechik, 39, was sentenced to nine months’ jail by a district court. He will start his jail term on April 29 as he wished to tender his resignation as an environment health officer with the National Environment Agency. When he pleaded guilty last month, a district court heard that he committed the offences when he was the chairman of the Jurong Spring RC Zone A. He would prepare payment vouchers for non-existent expenses such as maintenance fees to deceive treasurer Handra Sapri Salamat, 55, to also sign on the cheques to release RC funds. Rosli was the other signatory and the cheques were amounts ranging from $150 to $2,350. — “Ex-RC chairman jailed for cheating his own committee” from The Straits Times.
