    • I did some loading observation(After work/Off days) for 

      svc 12,43,62,85 & 136.

      S12:Should maintain as it is...4-5 SD is just nice.Loadings has dropped slightly over the years.

      S43:Beside weekdays peak hours,I don't think full DD is justified with added buses and 43M.Can simply put 4 SD and 43M just need a couple of DD only.

      S62:3 DD to 3 SD should be more than fine.

      85:5 SD to replace 5 DD..Waste of fuel.

      136:Need 3 DD during AM school peak hour and 4 DD during weekends.

      Required A level scores depends on popularity of Uni courses. Getting Bs & Cs will only allow your daughter to enter the less popular Uni courses. Don't worry too much, in J1 most students are barely passing all their subjects anyway. They take time to adjust to the tougher JC syllabus.

    • If 256 and 258 are removed from Boon Lay Interchange, does that mean Boon Lay Interchange has room for new routes?

      I would be looking forward to that!

    • There are some that believe the Buddha is an avatar of Vishu.

      This reincarnation is make siddhis to abandon austerity practices that grant great boons. Such boons make the siddhis greater in powers than the devas', therefore a threat to them.

    • China embraces three ideology, namely Taoism, Buddhism and Confucianism. Way of thought, moral,ethics and science are influence by all three and the communists are able to embrace they because they are essentially Chinese. One can be a Taoist, Buddhists and Confucian simultaneously.

      Buddhism in a predominantly Hindu society where Buddhism is more of a sideshow. Also Hinduism is not one monolith religion.

    • If inclusiveness is an universal virtue, then indeed Islam must go through Muslims themselves a reformation.

      However, given the exclusive nature of abrahamic religions, there is a limit to how inclusive these exclusive religions can become. Fundamentally, the way exclusive religions proselytize, simply put,embrace or be condemned. What it essentially means is that, you deserve the worst that might to happen to you, even if we(adherents) would feel sorry for you. Let the key belief sink in, you deserve it. Not believing is a greater sin than other non virtues. This is the only sin that is automatically non forgivable.

      However, given we are increasingly in an open and inclusive society. The basis of having wider interaction with peace and tolerance as a premise. For Abrahamic beliefs, the Christians have it a little easier, having the old testament and the new testament. There is a fundamental shift of love, tolerance and forgiving nature with the advent of the messiah(although still not quite wholly inclusive).  Also one of the main reasons which I feel, for the non acceptance of the Hebrews of this messiah is he is not a sweeping conqueror implied within the context of the old testament. 
      Put in  Buddhist context, a messiah is a cakravartin, an universal monarch.

      Now, for the Muslims, the Koran currently being the central authority through his messenger, Prophet Muhammad, there are two periods, the earlier Meccan and latter Medinah period. The Koran, written during the earlier Meccan period advocated peace and tolerance. Whereas the Koran written during the Medinah period sanction actions such as lying, intolerance and violence to non believers and deviants. The Medina hadiths justifies and also abrogates against the earlier hadiths found in the Meccan Koran. So, one can resort to lying and violence against the enemies of Islam whenever it is to their convenience. It was through violence where Islam grew phenomenally. (Golden Era/ Glory days of Islam?)

      Why do you think Muslims terrorists are called Muslims fundamentalists? Simply, such actions can be justified through the Medinah Koran and that of Prophet Muhammad and his followers through a path of conquest and violence. Much of Islam's conversion has been under the sword. However, most people, which includes a majority of Muslims, desire  peaceful lives, hence the return to earlier more peaceful version Koran.

       Unfortunately, Muslims are not a homogeneous group. Apart from the broad denominations of Sunni and Shia, also are a number of interpretations. Also, Muslims are culturally diverse. Religion is of belief and culture and in many instances they conflate. Most are tolerant but many are not. These may have been a minority, but still being a large following, they are many. If there is no urgency by Muslims themselves to reform Islam, then perception of Islam as a religion of violence, cannot be helped but grow. As they say, action speaks louder than words. One cannot claim to a larger family brotherhood only disavow each others' actions whenever inconvenient to one's narrative. It can be said that Muslims kill more Muslims than non Muslims simply because they do not agree with each other. You can get killed for being less Islamic. Still there is not overwhelming sense of urgency in reformation.

      It had been said, that words of Prophet Mohammad is the words of Allah. Thus, is has been difficult to separate the Word of Allah through the mouth of Prophet Mohammad and  words coming from Mohammad the man. One could and should accept that the Prophet is not Allah, and therefore  not equal to Allah. Therefore, he cannot be perfect like Allah, and one should not conflate the words of Allah and that of the man, even if they come out from the mouth of same man. Perhaps one should determine whether Allah is Good and what constitutes Good words and actions.
      One should also remember Prophet Muhammad was and but is not the messenger anymore.
