Malay & Tamil.
Planners expect the
population of Singapore to reach 5.5 million by 2040 or 2050, taking
into account an expected increase in the number of foreigners working
here. From just 3 million in 1990, the number has swelled to 3.9 million
today, including 700,000 foreigners.
A high-level working
committee is now looking at ways to encourage more couples to have
babies. Demographer Saw Swee Hock says that if the fertility rate
continues to stay below two, the population here, minus the foreigners,
will peak at about 3.3 million in 2025 and then begin to drop.
Singapore's water is
clean and safe to drink from the tap. There is no need to boil it.

Brisbane, Australia: Eight
people were killed yesterday when a light plane depressurised and
crashed in Australia's remote north-east, after flying 3000 km on a
five-hour ghost flight across the continent. The Beechcraft King Air 200
twin-engine turbo-prop set out with seven miners on a one-hour flight
from Perth to the gold mining town of Leonora, both in Western
Australia. It crashed five hours later at 2.10am on the other side of
the continent 148 km south-west of Normanton, authorities said.
Bangkok: Piranhas have been
caught in a lake in southern Thailand, sparking fears among local
fishermen that many more of these man-eating fishes may be lurking in
the rivers. The catch, measuring 30 cm long and weighing 700 g, was made
a month ago by a fisherman in the Nam Noi river in Angthong province. It
has been confirmed by the Fishery Department here that it is a member of
the red piranha family.
Jakarta: Indonesian state
oil company Pertamina said yesterday it had agreed with Singapore's Gas

Pertamina will supply about 4.25 million cubic metres of natural gas a
day from 2003 to Gas Supply, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Singapore
Power, rising to a peak of 9.9 million cubic metres a day.
Indian defence scientists say they have identified the world's hottest
chilli, with a kick that makes the previous Mexican contender to the
title, Red Savina Habanero, seem positively bland by comparison.
"Laboratory tests have confirmed that Naga Jolokia, a speciality
from the north-east, is now the world's hottest chilli," said
laboratory deputy director S.C. Das. Measured for pungency in Scoville
units, the Naga Jolokia powered in at 855 units, compared with the 577
units of its rival.

for one twin.
