Underage prostitute kept meticulous sex diary of ‘bonking sessions’ with 48 men

Posted by temasektimes on April 23, 2012

The freelance prostitute who got 48 men charged for having commercial sex with her may be considered a ‘minor’ under the law, but her meticulousness resembled more like a seasoned businesswoman.

Among the 48 men already charged include 9 civil servants, a senior banker, a company director, a senior vice-president of a private company, lawyers, a senior police officer, the former principal of Pei Chun Public School Lee Lip Hong and prominent grassroots leader and high-ranking MOE official Chua Ren Cheng. Their ages range from between 21 to 48 years old.

In the heart of the evidence used by the prosecution to charge the 48 men is a sex diary kept by the underage prostitute documenting clearly her ‘bonking sessions’ with her clients.

According to court documents obtained by the press, the underage prostitute had sex 58 times with the 48 men between 23 September 2010 and 24 October 2011.

Her diary includes chilling details such as the place and time of the sessions as well as the amount of time spent by each man bonking her.

Though she charged a ‘standard’ rate of $500, some of her clients such as former grassroots leader Chua Ren Sheng and Swiss banker Juerg Buergin were so pleased with her services that they offered her tips of between $100 and $200.

One client 29 year old Koh Zi Yang had sex with her twice for nearly two hours just months after he got married. Another client bonked her for only 15 minutes, but still paid her $500 nevertheless.

The third batch of men expected to be charged soon includes a senior lawyer and high-ranking SAF officer. Like many others before him, they have been ‘pawned’ big time by her.

“I am overwhelmed by your response to my FB page. I have read so many comments from Singaporeans here and abroad, and from many foreign well-wishers.

Choa Chu Kang hit by spate of molest cases targeting female students

Posted by temasektimes on April 23, 2012

Even before the ‘pinoy drummer’ issue has been resolved, Choa Chu Kang is hit by a recent spate of molest cases in the neighborhood.

According to media reports, a primary school in Choa Chu Kang has issued a circular to parents lately warning them to exercise greater vigilance following the appearance of a serial molester preying on young girls.

The molester usually surfaced between 12 noon and 5pm in the evening and the crimes were committed in HDB lift landings, staircase and supermarkets.

The police has also urged residents to avoid going home alone in dimly lit areas and to walk to crowded places immediately if they discover anybody following them.

CCK ‘drummer’ saga: Filipino boy asked to ‘strictly adhere’ to curfew timing

Posted by temasektimes on April 23, 2012

The protracted Choa Chu Kang saga appears to be resolve amicably at least for the time-being with the Filipino boy being asked to ‘strictly adhere’ to the curfew timing.

For several weeks, residents living in Block 608 Choa Chu Kang Street 62 have to put up with the incessant drumming and blasting of rock music by a Filipino boy said to have ‘special needs’.

PAP MP Alex Yam initially proclaimed the matter to be ‘resolved’, but after the Temasek Times ran a series of articles showing otherwise, he changed tact and met up with a resident Chong Liling to address the issue.

After the meeting on Saturday, the following measures are agreed upon:

1. Strictly adhere to the curfew timing (noon-1pm / 6-7pm).
2. Family to do up temporary sound proof while waiting for the full sound proof to be put up.
3. Ultimately Full sound proofing still need to be done asap.

However, it is not known how Mr Yam and his grassroots activists are going to enforce the curfew when the boy has flouted it several times in the past.

In a comment posted on Mr Yam’s Facebook thanking him and his team for their efforts, Liling reminded Mr Yam that the examination periods are nearing and she hope the family can arrange the kid to have his ‘drumming therapy’ at a studio instead of at home:

“I had highlighted to you and your team that this coming weeks fall under sensitive period as exams will start from next week till 3rd week of may, therefore the noise level should be reduced to the minimum and I believe your team will work with the family to temporary arrange the kid to have his drumming therapy at some studio if possible or other possible arrangements.”

Liling also thanked concerned Singaporeans for standing by her side:

“To all fellow Singaporeans, Thank You for all your messages which you had sent me via FB, inputs, comments which make me feel that fellow Singaporeans are kind, caring, considerate and standing together as one.”

Despite receiving numerous complaints from residents, Mr Yam has continued to defend the boy’s drumming and initially tried to dismiss them as ‘xenophobic’ rants, blaming Singaporeans not not being ‘understanding’ enough:

“Is it more acute because it is a foreigner family? Has anyone tried to approach and clarify the situation? Does anyone know that the person drumming is a special needs person in a special school? Did anyone try to find out that the family is trying to save up to soundproof their place? Just so that their son to develop what they believe is his innate talent despite his special needs?”

Choa Chu Kang residents can keep us updated on the saga by emailing us at temasektimes@yahoo.com.

Disgraced ex-WP MP Yaw Shin Leong back in Singapore to settle some ‘personal matters’

Posted by temasektimes on April 23, 2012

Disgraced former Workers Party MP Yaw Shin Leong is reportedly back in Singapore after having gone into hiding overseas for the last two months and leaving his wife to clear up the ‘mess’ he left behind for him alone.

According to media reports, Yaw returned to Singapore last week from Hong Kong to settle some ‘personal matters’ here. However, journalists camped outside his home for days did not manage to catch him.

Since his sordid sex scandals were exposed to the public, Yaw was quick to take flight from Singapore, leaving Hougang residents in the lurch.

Yaw allegedly had extra-marital affairs with multiple married women including two party members who contested in the General Election last year and a neighbor from China.

Meanwhile, the Workers Party has yet to clarify if there are anymore ‘hanky-panky’ business going on within its ranks following Yaw’s departure which raises serious questions about its credibility.

With the by-election in Hougang expected to be called soon, Yaw’s presence in Singapore will be an ‘asset’ to the PAP whose media will continue to harp on his sexual peccadilloes to smear him and WP together in the same brush.

Aljunied resident harassed and intimidated by AHTC cleaners after complaining about dirty corridors

Posted by temasektimes on April 23, 2012

Even before the ‘rat infestation’ problem in Aljunied GRC has been solved, another problem has popped up again with another Aljunied resident complaining about the decline in the general state of hygiene in the constituency.

One Aljunied resident 28 year old Mr Goh living in Bedok North Street 1 said his estate is usually quite clean for the last 12 years till Workers’ Party took over the ward.

“The corridors are not swept as often as before and you can see the litter everywhere,” he said pointing to a pile of litter outside his flat to visiting journalists.

As usual, complaints to Aljunied-Hougang Town Council (AHTC) fell on deaf ears and Mr Goh was subsequently HARASSED and INTIMIDATED by its cleaners under its employment!

Mr Goh claimed that after lodging his complaint to AHTC, he has been harassed relentlessly by a Bangladeshi worker from AHTC who made rude and intimidating remarks to him.

“This is not the first time. I suspect he knew I lodged a complaint against him and therefore kept harassing me. I have lodged a police report already,” Mr Goh added.

When contacted by the media, AHTC said it has conducted its own internal investigation and the Bangladeshi worker has denied harassing Mr Goh.

‘Wild Honey’ restaurant slammed for favoring foreigners over Singaporeans

Posted by temasektimes on April 23, 2012

The ‘Wild Honey’ western restaurant at Mandarin Gallery has been slammed by netizens for allegedly ‘favoring’ foreigners over Singaporeans.

One angry Singaporean Gary Tan posted on its Facebook asking why he was not given a corner table by the staff which subsequently was given to a foreigner who came after him:

[Source: Facebook]

Instead of addressing Gary’s concerns, Wild Honey’s director Guy Wachs rapped him for his complaint:

“We have an international staff including many Singaporeans and respect all people. We deeply regret your remark.”

When Gary continued to protest against the discrimination, his comments were deleted from its Facebook. According to Gary, he arrived at the restaurant at 9am in the morning and it was not packed at all.

The attitude of Guy Wachs peeved off many netizens who are now calling for a boycott of the restaurant.

Some responses on Hardwarezone forum:

“lets boycott them. they need us to survive. but we dont need them.” – strike

“wa, wanted to try at Wild Honey with my gf wan…after this i think i will not go liao.what kind of service is that…we also pay money wan leh.” – timberland

Singapore girl defends PM Lee on Facebook against ‘champion grumblers’

Posted by temasektimes on April 23, 2012

Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong’s debut on Facebook has brought a myriad of responses from Singaporeans with some expressing their support for him while others use it as a platform to air their grievances and unhappiness with the government.

Bombarded with mounting calls from citizens to resolve a plethora of problems besieging his administration such as the frequent train breakdowns, one Singapore girl ‘Shu Hui’ sprung to PM Lee’s defence on his Facebook.

In a lengthy comment, Shu Hui implored PM Lee to ‘ignore’ the complaints of these netizens:

“Dear Mr Lee, please ignore these citizens who leave comments about MRT issues, housing issues and why their lives suck because the government doesn’t instantly hand them everything they demand on a silver plate.”

[Source: PM Lee’s Facebook]

She also took a snipe at the critics and detractors:

“The fact that these whiners and complainers can come online and comment here means they have internet access and in turn, means they have a laptop or PC or ipad or iphone or mobile phone, and they can afford these machines plus data plans to come online and complain incessantly.”

The unprecedented move by PM Lee to set up a personal Facebook to reach out to the online community led to some to speculate that the Hougang by-election may be called soon.

There are some unverified rumors circulating around that a by-election may be called in Ang Mo Kio GRC as well together with Hougang for the PAP to bring in new candidates into parliament.

SMRT on LRT train disruption: The walkway is ‘safe’ to walk

Posted by temasektimes on April 23, 2012

Following our exposure of a shocking scene in which passengers are forced to walk on LRT track after a LRT train stalled between Bukit Panjang and Senja LRT stations, SMRT has issued a public statement reassuring Singaporeans that the walkway is ‘safe’ to walk. (pic left by Izzy Hazip)

Instead of taking responsibility for the latest train disruption, thick-skinned SMRT heaped generous self-praise on its ‘double-quick’ response time in ‘attending’ to the stranded passengers as if it is some major crisis.

“Within five minutes, our staff attended to the affected passengers, while the air-conditioning and lights remained on throughout,” it said in a statement to the media.

The passengers were asked to leave the train and walked on a 1.5-metre-wide emergency walkway for about 150 metres to Senja station under the ‘escort’ of two SCDF officers.

It is not known if the passengers were given discounts off their fares for walking part of their journey home.

Despite genuine concerns about the safety of doing so, SMRT proclaimed:

“The walkway is SAFE and is regularly used by its staff for maintenance work.”

However, some netizens remain skeptical on Facebook:

“is it a SOP to allow stranded passengers to walk on the rail? How sure are they that it is safe to walk like that? if a passenger decided to commit suicide by jumping down? what if there is a lightining strike?? what if someone has phobia of height?” – Terence Lim

“wont you fall down? like acccidentally fall down?!?!!?!?!?looks very DANGEROUS” – Fang Jun

“definitely very dangerous…what if suddenly raining and very windy….suspect people also can fly…very sure there must be other alternative to rescue passengers…” – Salbiah Ali
