Check the empty units in Vacant Hi-end properties for Dengue NEA!

I've owned many properties before, and I would say, empty properties do breed lots of mosquitoes. From the toilet bowl, to the sinks, modern U-shaped drain pipes are everywhere in your house. Used as a seal to prevent foul smell from coming to the toilet, it holds water in dark and damp areas of the house, making it suitable for mosquito breeding.

Today, many houses, high-end apartments are empty in Singapore because too many speculators who have bought them (for speculation, duh) cannot rent them out due to the bad economy. And many of these apartments and houses have lots of toilets.

I've been to a house today which was unused for 2 weeks and there was already a swarm of mosquitoes in the house.

I'm sure NEA will tell you the house that you live in now is breeding mosquitoes because you have plants and your flowers are breeding mosquitoes, but are they actually checking on the empty expensive units that people cannot afford to rent?

Is it because expensive homes do not breed mosquitoes? I serious hope they do.

Good Intentions Gone Wrong

When Lee Kuan Yew passed away in March 2015, many people mourned for him. In India, some of the villagers were really sad, and even though they did not meet the man, they believed he did great things.

And many posters that can make you cringe can be found and above are 2 examples which shows good intentions of the villagers going totally wrong. One would simply as; if you really care about your benefactor that much, would you not recognize him? Or not know how Singapore flag looks like? Or is this just a political move to show the popularity of Lee Kuan Yew overseas getting backfired?
