      14 and 222 was all the while stuck tgt even in the temp int. Why split them apart?? Esp KNOWING that they have to be tgt as seen from its prev allocations. This means that they are going BACK on the smart moves they have made. 

      Then there is the traffic. Never have I seen such horrific traffic in any interchange. Its disgusting knowing the alighting berth of Bedok Int is no diff from that of Sengkang, who has half the no. Of svcs. 

      In hindsight they might as well have kept the temp int and named it as an extension. 

      Whoever designed the int should rly get sacked. Esp the one who did the berth allocations. A plain idiot that person is! He don't deserve his rice bowl if he doesnt use his brains. 

      The berth allocation is indeed dismal.  An example will be 229, it's the only feeder occupying the last few berths of the interchange and that's not ideal especially with many elderly taking to Chai Chee area, their other alternative is 26 but that is even further. If 14 should be paired with 222, den 38 should be together with 229 or at least not that far apart.

    • Teen blogger Amos Yee granted US asylum

      SINGAPORE: The United States has granted asylum to Singaporean blogger Amos Yee, according to the US law firm representing him in his application.

      According to a media update on Grossman Law's website, Immigration Judge Samuel Cole granted Yee asylum after he concluded that the Singapore Government "persecuted Yee on account of his political opinion". 

      The judge also found Yee and his two witnesses, one of whom is Mr Kenneth Jeyaretnam, leader of the opposition Reform Party, "credible" and that the applicant had established he "suffered past persecution on account of his political opinion". The Department of Homeland Security has not rebutted the presumption that he has a well-founded fear of future prosecution, he added. 

      "Yee has met his burden of showing that he suffered past persecution on account of his political opinion and has a well-founded fear of future persecution in Singapore," according to the decision of the Immigration Judge, as posted on the law firm's website. 

      The Department of Homeland Security has 30 days (until Apr 24) to file an appeal. If the government fails to appeal, the decision will become final, the law firm said, adding it has contacted the Immigration and Customs Enforcement in Chicago to secure Yee's release. 

      Yee's mother, Madam Mary Toh, confirmed last December that he was detained in the United States. According to US-based Singaporean civil activist Melissa Chen, the 18-year-old was detained after he landed at O'Hare Airport in Chicago.

      The Singaporean was sentenced in July 2015 to four weeks' jail for wounding the religious feelings of Christians and Muslims, and was sentenced to another six week's jail for the same offence last September.

      Peak hour loading on 43 in both directions is now not DD worthy at all, except from Serangoon - Buangkok, though it could possibly be because of GA's over-deployment.

      I have seen MP side before. It just depends on which bus comes first.

      If the above is right, then the rest of the unknowns is straightforward ...
      D is Hougang
      E and F are TPE and PIE respectively
      J is Kovan

      Correct.

      Did you take a whole half hour to do this?

      We don't need to wait that long. Changes to bus routes in Bedok may happen when Downtown Line 3 opens this year.

    • Mai tia people gong lanjiao way lah

      There are many scientists in this world, including taxi scientist, but few get famous or renowned, so in the media, you see many kinds of finding and proven thesis and theory make by each individual or group to seek attention, of cos, there are a few who really contribute to the humanity of this world, like finding out of DNA, heart bypass, those maths and physics definition and formulas.

      Most scientist are paid by commercial business organization to deviate and put people mind into fear, thereafter, people buy their product or use their services.

      In the early 70s, microwave was invented, some scientist said eating the food by microwave can get cancer, because conventional cooker and oven business paid the scientist to come out with such statement just to hold on to their business and jobs.

      40 years later, there is never a case or prove of anyone who got cancer is link with eating microwave food, but more of genetic effect, self destruction like drinking, smoking or taking strong medication or overly exhausted and exerted one self by depriving sleep and working long hr like taxi drivers.
