Estimated population of Singapore citizens and permanent residents - 3,163,500 as at June 1998.

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.

Singapore's water is clean and safe to drink from the tap. There is no need to boil it.

Due to bad weather the past few days, our next tour scheduled for Saturday has been postponed. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

  Once in a while, along comes a website that delivers that extra something to make our lives so much more convenient. That website is, of course, Go-Events.com. Now, there's no need for us to scout around for events, such as exhibitions or seminars. There's also no need to do a lot of legwork just to get ourselves registered for the event. And, we don't even need to worry about how to get a place in that important seminar across the sea in a faraway place.

  All we need to do is to log on to this website, and hey presto! all major events happening around the world are listed in clearly defined categories. These events offer instant online registration. We just need to make payment by credit card and a confirmation is sent to us, together with complete details of the event and the organiser. They even take down our hotel booking requirements so that the event's organiser can confirm hotel bookings on our behalf. What more can we ask for?

  Click Go-Events.com to take a look.

Today Friday 7 Apr 2000

In Singapore

The Singapore Government does not believe in Malaysia-bashing or in putting down Malaysian Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad, said Prime Minister Goh Chok Tong yesterday.  He said the Government did not agree with the views expressed by Straits Times journalist Chua Lee Hoong in her column, "A tale of two democracies" (ST 25 Mar 2000). 

The Civil Service will be restructured to shatter the concept of it being an iron rice bowl and a new appraisal system will reward civil servants for qualities, such as innovativeness and creativity. In an interview with The Straits Times, Permanent Secretary (Prime Minister's Office) Eddie Teo said that the public sector, like the private sector, must enable officers to reach top positions after a "reasonable period of time".

New sentencing norms must be set for the "vast new area" of computer crimes to protect the public interest, said Chief Justice Yong Pung How. He annoucned this yesterday when he doubled to five years the jail term of a man for a credit-card-skimming conspiracy that cost banks more than S$141000. Lim Boon Hong ,28, had originally been sentenced to 2˝ years for securing unauthorised access to data stored on the magnetic strips of credit cards, for the purpose of cheating but the prosecution appealed against the sentence.


Kuala Lumpur: A Malaysian doctor seized a mother and her new-born son from their home and held them to ransom for 12 days in her maternity clinic because the husband could not settle the medical bill, reports said yesterday. Mother and son were released on Tuesday finally after the husband complained to the police.

Karachi: A Pakistani anti-terrorism court here yesterday sentenced former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to two life terms and ordered the forfeiture of his entire property for hijacking and terrorism.

Around the world

Manchester: Two total strangers who ripped off their clothes and engaged in sex acts during a transatlantic flight were fined by a British provincial court for being drunk on a plane. The court fined Amanda Holt, 37, and David Machin, 40, a total of GBP2250 (S$6120).
