Skeletons in the Closet



 Daily Dose - Skeletons in the closet

Do you have skeletons in your closet?

2 men literally may have that for the past 13 years. They had been identified and will be held responsible for the disappearance of 19-year-old Felicia Teo who had gone missing since 2007. Justice will finally be served.



1) 24 Covid19 Cases

24 Imported

This is the highest daily count since Sep 29. With the opening up of the country borders, imported cases are expected to remain and could even surge. The question beckons. What will be an acceptable number to Singapore? 50? 100? 1000? 

The last thing we want to do is to house travellers in tents as per the dorm cases. With the vaccine on the horizon, it is just a matter of time to fine-tune this.

7  Singaporeans, 6PR are among this batch. The rest is work pass holders, dependant pass holder and a special pass holder.

2) Man charged with the murder of Felicia Teo - Teen who went missing since 13 years ago.

Interestingly, this case was just brought to the attention of the public recently.  2 Men, Ahmad Danial and his accomplice Ragil Putra Setia Sukmarahjana were suspected of the killing. These 2 men were also the ones last seen with the victim before she disappeared. During that time, the investigation did not incriminate either of them. Ahmad was caught while Ragil is now overseas. It was only after transferring to CID that fresh evidence was found to link the men to the disappearance.

3) 80 % of the Spore's population needs to be vaccinated to achieve herd immunity

Herd immunity will indirectly reduce the risk of those not immune to it. The question is will Singapore residents take up the offer of immunity?

4) New Indonesia maids to cost up to $3000 more for employers in Singapore

From Jan 1, employers must pay a one time placement fee that was used to be borne by incoming foreign domestic workers. This is because of a new ruling by Indonesia authorities to pass the cost of FDW placement fee to employers from next month. Expect to pay at least $3000 more. Other fees to consider include agency fee and swab test and quarantine fee ( about $1700)

Indon FDW numbers 127,000 vs 252, 000 FDW in Singapore. With this increase, there is a strong possibility that FDW will be sourced from other places.
