2017 FSY Week 012- ReconstructHello Friday Friends, 朋友, Kawan, Dost & PengYiu,

How are you today? Yes, everything’s fine. Why do you ask?

When one is distressed on Friday, one either has to take a walk, or use pen or pencil to take a line for a walk. (Doodling)

 

 

Quick Quotable

Quotes are told in a few words that impact to our soul. Quotes are not meant to be read lightly. Quotes can change your life only when you choose to be deliberate when you read & think it deeply about them.

 

If with a pure mind a person speaks or acts, happiness follows them like a never-departing shadow. ~~Buddha

Please tell me something I don’t know.

Swee Say: To do well in future, adapt and learn, adapt and learn

http://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/swee-say-to-do-well-in-future-adapt-and-learn-adapt-and-learn

Manpower Minister Lim Swee Say declared that the idea of doing the same job for life is obsolete. To do well in future, we have to adapt and learn.

 

Please tell me something I don’t know. Since the day we became “human”, we have been adapting and learning. This is nothing new. I believe that certain jobs will not become obsolete even if someone works the same job throughout their life. Firemen, Policeman and especially Nursing. I strongly believe that Nursing will never be obsolete. That’s why I supported my daughter’s decision to further her studies in Nursing at Curtin University.

 

No technology can replace Nursing as you can’t automate caring, even with humanoids. With an aging society, we need more nurses, not more technology, or innovation, or productivity. Instead of Quality Certainty & Kaizen, we pushed the wrong button. We drop the well-oiled Quality movement in my time, and pushed for “Boh-Ta-Boh-Ti”. We pushed for the “Smart” journey, spending hard-earned taxpayer money on something that has zero growth in productivity for almost 10 years. I hope we will restart Quality Certainty and Kaizen of the past.

 

The bottleneck in our economy might be due to increasing basic costs too high and too fast. Our HDBs although (H)Home (D)Done (B)Beautifully but are damn expensive a pigeonholes in the sky that cost more than $100K. With $100K, our Neighbour country, their citizens can easily buy a single story landed property. To me, that’s truly low-cost public housing.

 

Whatever the term you want to use, please get the Committee of the Future Economy to look into removing all GST on daily basic ingredients needed to cook warm family meals like Rice, Sugar, Salt, oil, egg, vegetables, etc. This way, we will encourage more families to cook a simple warm meal at home and lessen the burden of looking for “Smart” Hawkers.

 

Question for the Committee of the Future Economy: Did we ever think out of the box of going to Johor and lease a big piece of land to start “Smart” farming? Just like China, leasing lands to create a garden country or forest of cities.
