  4D/Toto/Score

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

Chinese                     77%

Malays                      14%

Indians                     7.6%

Other ethnic groups 1.4%

Working Language: English

Other official languages: Mandarin, 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.

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

   Sighted this week in Singapore! Not a leopard, but Scene To Believe, a company whose business is to provide an unforgettable experience for your staff and clients attending that important company event, be it a conference, trade show, product launch, family day or sporting function.

   It is a great promotion tool. Their mobile units are fully transportable and suitable for all sorts of events. Just take a look at the picture above - that's me being pounced upon by a leopard.

In Singapore

At the launch of Kindness Week at Suntec City yesterday, Prime Minister Goh Chok Tong said that grassroots organisations should get involved in the kindness movement as they were in close contact with residents. For instance, they could set up kindness clubs where members could get together, share experiences and motivate others to be kind.

 The People's Association marked its 40th birthday yesterday.  But, its deputy chairman, Home Affairs Minister Wong Kan Seng noted that Malay participation in its activities had been low. 

A Briton who allegedly assaulted two men in a road-rage case in Pasir Panjang nearly two years ago was cleared yesterday.  Mr Mark Wheeler, a permanent resident here, had been charged with punching and kicking Mr Koh Tiu Ling, 46, several times. It was expert medical testimony that helped to secure Mr Wheeler's acquittal.

When the Children and Young Persons Act is amended later this year, parents of juvenile delinquents will have to participate in some rehabilitation programmes with their children. They will also have to attend workshops where they will learn how to discipline their children and help them to reintegrate into society when they leave the institutions.  

Asia 

Sydney: Police hunting the rapist of a 91-year-old woman began conducting DNA tests yesterday on the entire adult male population of a small rural town. Villagers were free to refuse the test.

Around the world

Washington: US Attorney General Janet Reno has ordered that the Miami family holding Elian Gonzalez turn him over to his father this week, setting the stage for a showdown with Miami relatives in the bitter custody battle over the six-year-old Cuban boy.
