I disagree with my friend.

Democracy kills - Humphrey Hawksley

 Some people have the belief that democracy and the right to vote is the answer to a good government that can bring progress and well being for the people.

In his book, the author presents a different perspective. He quotes many examples of countries that adopt democracy as its form of government and suffered disastrous outcomes.

Singapore will live with covid

 For the past 15 months, the WTF ministers have been implementing all kinds of measures (which TKL describes as "insane") to stop the spread of the virus.

They had spent (wasted) over $100 billion and destroyed countless businesses and livelihoods.

They now realized that the strategy was wrong. They will now learn to "live with covid" and stop publishing the daily case count numbers (which scare the population like hell).

They did not say, but they will follow TKL's suggestion to monitor the severe hospitalizations.

Hehehe. Now these WTF ministers are considered to be smarter than the Aussies.

Imported cases placed under Stay Home Notice

 I find the current arrangement on Stay Home Notice or isolation in hotel to be confusing and contradictory.

Can someone explain the rationale, or clarify the situation?

Fire insurance policy covers fire caused by accident

 Someone asked me:

May i seek your view on the following:
For many years, I bought home insurance from a reputable insurer. I thought that I would be covered if the house caught fire because someone in my house forgot turn off the iron, the stove, etc.
However on further checking (with this and another insurer),they say these cases are NOT covered.

Relaxation of covid restrictions - late June 2021

 The recent relaxation of the covid restrictions bring some business back to the food centers. But getting the other business sectors to recover will be a big, big challenge.

Pay the VIFAS compensation

 The government should pay the compensation under VIFAS for people who died shortly after vaccination, even though the vaccine may not be the main cause of death. It is likely that the vaccine had contributed to the death in the small number of cases.
