Monthly Message August 2019

Dear Residents

Discounts for PG and MG residents

August is an exciting time for all Singaporeans. But amidst the festive mood, there are concerns about the global trade war and economic slowdown. While the job market will be affected, there are still about 60,000 vacancies to be filled, including about half for PMETS (professionals, managers, executives and technicians). If you have trouble looking for a job, Workforce Singapore offers career coaching, job fairs and retraining programmes. Make good use of them.

You can also come to my Meet-the-People sessions for help. We recently hosted a job fair at our CC and will arrange for more.

As individuals and as a nation, we have beaten the odds many times. The future may seem uncertain, but as long as we stay united and resilient, we will overcome the challenges. As a symbol of our unity, let’s all fly the national flag outside our homes this August.

We have come so far because of the resilience of our Pioneer and Merdeka Generations. To show our gratitude to them, PG and MG residents will enjoy kopi-o kosong and teh-o kosong for just 50 cents every Wednesday morning. This discount is available at all 10 coffeeshops in Nee Soon South. We are the first constituency in Singapore to offer this at all private coffeeshops. I hope this will encourage our senior residents to reduce their sugar intake and ask their neighbours out for coffee.

Please join me at:
