      I saw wrongly, only took a quick glance at the duty so I thought is AP02

      iirc sequence was 3143L > 3102E so no doubt AP01, weekend no TQ to spoil the sequence haha..

    • Sembawang needs feeder service. heck even 882 does not serve till midnight.

      859A/B (currently the only service serving till after midnight)

      882A (for 2330/2345 to 0040) (minimal route changes)

      117M (SBST) (new SWT)

      883 (new service)

      980 and 981 are in Sembawang, but 982E, 983 and 985 are all in CCK.

      111 should have renumbered long ago

      51 also should renumbered as well, does not even serve Bishan at all.

      svc 2-6, 8 and 9 serves Tampines but 7, though all serves pax in the east.

    • I am a 2nd year poly student and I am soo sad of my life like I just feel soo lonely. I do have friends in my small poly class of my own but they often talked among themselves cause we dont share the same interest and common tongue( I am not singaporean). I started joining two ccas this year while I join none in year 1 cause I followed my poly frens. In one of my cca is when I found really nice friends but we are still yet to be close and another cca which I have passion in it. Many gurls compliment my looks and say things like I am like one of those popular girls u see on instagram in which I am like the complete opposite. I envy those pretty gurls with great social life, take nice pictures and post on instagram. In my entire life, I only had one best friend whom I known in primary school and whom I stay in touch almost everday and thats about it. I had dramas in secondary school which has a lot of back-stabbing and I am always unlucky at friends where I meet the wrong type of people. My parents are strict on my social media and refused to let me use twitter n instagram till I was 18. Even during holidays I worked my ass off and rarely hang out at all, my relatives are also not in singapore. I am turning 19 and I really want to go out there and live life, hanging out with genuine people, partying and having fun. I just feel like my life is grey , dark and hollow . I recently broke up with my 7 months boyfriend whom failed me deeply by not treating me right and causing me to lose my friends.  I am looking to dance classes and photography so if u guys have any ideas? I really want to know where to meet friends- real friends.

      Agree! 307 have too many cases of "one week perm" already...it happened to SMB66X and some other buses before... 

      I am guessing SMB98D ran into some problems again (since it wasnt spotted on any cameo list these few days), SMB99B too...

      Might as well move everything to 83x and 84x - beside the Yishun trunks, for both numerical and geographic proximity. Leave 98x for CCK (with neighbouring 97x at Bt Panjang and 99x at Bt Batok) and 870-899 for future developments (such as Simpang and Seletar). 

      Then 980, 981, 882 can be renumbered 840, 841, 842 respectively. New trunks can start from 843, and new feeders from 830 (mainly for those not entering Yishun town, to minimize "3" and "5" mixup). If needed, premium 825 can be renumbered to 525 or 529X.

    • Heng Swee Keat discharged from hospital: Prime Minister's Office

      SINGAPORE: Finance Minister Heng Swee Keat was discharged from Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH) on Saturday (Jun 25) and has made an "excellent recovery", said a statement from the Prime Minister's Office (PMO). He has been in hospital for the past month and a half, after he collapsed from stroke.


      "Mr Heng expresses his deepest appreciation to the doctors, nurses, and staff of TTSH and the National Neuroscience Institute for their excellent care, and also to the many well-wishers, who had sent him messages of encouragement and good wishes," the statement added.


      Mr Heng will be on medical leave as he continues his rehabilitation process. To minimise the risk of infection, his doctors have advised against receiving visitors for the time being, said the statement.


      Deputy Prime Minister and Coordinating Minister for Economic and Social Policies Tharman Shanmugaratnam will continue to cover the duties of the Minister for Finance, the PMO said.


      Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said on Facebook that he is delighted that Mr Heng has been discharged. "He has been working hard on his rehab and is determined to recover fully. I am confident he will, supported by his family and medical team."


      He also thanked the doctors, nurses, therapists, and staff at TTSH for their professionalism and dedication. "This outcome would not have happened without your good work," Mr Lee said.


      YOUR PRAYERS AND GOOD WISHES MADE THE DIFFERENCE: HENG

      Mr Heng himself posted on Facebook, saying the last few weeks have been the toughest of his life. "I could get through this time because of the strong support from my family, great medical care, and the kindness from all of you," he wrote.


      "If not for the critical help of many people, including my colleagues in Cabinet on the day of my stroke, I wouldn’t be here now," the 54-year-old said. He praised the TTSH and National Neuroscience Institute teams as "truly dedicated professionals". "They showed the best of care, and a warm human touch. They are rays of light when patients and their families are at their lowest. I am so thankful too to the SCDF (Singapore Civil Defence Force) crew who saved me. Anyone who is helped by our hospitals and the SCDF is in good hands."


      Mr Heng, who is Member of Parliament for Tampines GRC, said he was touched by how friends and colleagues in Government and in Tampines came together to make sure their work gets done and residents are cared for. "This is true team spirit, thank you."


      "For now, doctors say no visitors, no work, focus on rehab so I can recover fully. I may not be able to reply to your messages. But be assured that I'm reading them all, and your good wishes give me strength.


      "I look forward to when I can see everyone again."


      Mr Heng underwent surgery at TTSH after collapsing from a stroke during a Cabinet meeting on May 12. The stroke was found to have been caused by an aneurysm, which surgeons successfully closed.


      On May 30, PM Lee visited Mr Heng and found that he was "recovering well" and "making steady progress".
       

      Mr Heng also heads the Committee of the Future Economy, which is tasked with developing economic strategies to position Singapore for the future.
       

      In view of Mr Heng's illness, his deputy, Minister for Trade and Industry (Industry) S Iswaran, was appointed as co-chairman of the committee. Minister in the Prime Minister's Office Chan Chun Sing was appointed as the Deputy Chairman, in place of Mr Iswaran.

    • SCDF awards teens who helped two cardiac arrest victims

      Two teenagers became the first civilians to respond to two calls for help by cardiac arrest victims in a day through an innovative mobile phone app by Singapore Civil Defence (SCDF) .

       

      Mr Hairil Aidilfitri Johari, 19, and Mr Muhammad Adhwa Ahlami Johari, 19, went to the aid of two victims in two hours, after Mr Adhwa received two alerts from the myResponder app on Wednesday.

       

      The boys had watched Croatia upset favourites Spain 2-1 in a Euro 2016 group match and then tucked into their pre-dawn Ramadan meal at Mr Hairil's Woodlands Street 82 flat.

       

      Just as they finished their meal at 5.30am, Mr Adhwa heard a siren. It did not come from a passing ambulance outside, it was a notification from his myResponder app.

       

      The two ITE students, who are been trained in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and using an automated external defibrillator (AED), sprinted to the scene in two minutes.

       

      They were just in time to assist paramedics and help direct traffic.

       

      They had barely caught their breath after the first case when Mr Adhwa and Mr Hairil received another notification, at 7.33am.

       

      "We were very thirsty but could not stop for a water break as we are fasting," Mr Hairil told The New Paper. Rain poured while they sprinted to their next case. They reachedthe victim's flat in a minute.

       

      TOOK CONTROL

      They saw the victim's family members administering CPR while he was seated in an upright position, which was wrong.

       

      Remembering their cadet training at Evergreen Secondary School, the teens took control of the situation.

       

      They placed the victim on the floor, and took turns to administer CPR on the elderly man with the assistance of the voice call function on the app.

       

      Once paramedics came seven minutes later, the teens consoled the victim's distraught family members.

       

      "It was the least we could do," said Mr Hairil. Despite their efforts, both patients died later.

       

      The SCDF decided to recognise the teens exceptional efforts and gave them the Public Spiritedness Award at the 4th SCDF Division Headquarters in Bukit Batok yesterday.

       

      Their former secondary school principal, Ms Carol Lim, beamed with pride when they were presented with the award.

       

      "They are boys of good character and always selflessly offering their help in times of crisis," Ms Lim said.

       

      Assistant Commissioner Yazid Abdullah, the director of the medical department at SCDF, commended Mr Adhwa and Mr Hairil's courage.

       

      He said that even though these two were equipped with first-aid training, responders without any background knowledge can also use the myResponder app.

       

      "It is not essential to have previous first-aid training as responders will have the assistance of our control room.

       

      "We highly encourage more people to offer their assistance using myResponder," said AC Yazid.

       

      How it works

      Since its launch in April last year, the myResponder mobile app has given civilians the chance to save a person's life.

       

      Anyone above 18 will be able to register with their SingPass.

       

      So far, there have been 15,000 downloads and 6,000 reported cases of suspected cardiac arrests.

       

      Users will be able to report incidents of cardiac arrest and be notified of cases within 400m of their location.

       

      Responders trained in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and using automated external defibrillators are then able to attend to the reported cases.

       

      First-hand training is not mandatory. The public is encouraged to download the app.

       

      Response is voluntary, and the SCDF only encourages volunteers to respond when they are available within reasonable means. Untrained users can conduct phone-assisted CPR before the arrival of paramedics and usher them to the location.

       

      Every minute without intervention decreases the survival rate by 10 per cent.
