  • Singapore PM tells summit: ASEAN growing closer to China and India

    (28 Apr 2018) Southeast Asian countries are working closely with new powers like China and India to counter the pressures of protectionism and ensure continued growth, said Singapore's Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong. This is because the strategic balance of power has shifted both globally and in the region, he noted, at the opening of the 32nd Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Summit on Saturday. Lee said that regional economic growth was under threat because the political mood in many countries had turned against free trade. He said that recent trade tensions between the US and China, in particular, are "worrying concerns". Last month, President Donald Trump ordered huge tariffs on Chinese imports to the US including aluminum and steel. China responded with a list of...

Singapore Girl is a consistent visual advertising slogan applied to depictions of flight attendants of Singapore Airlines (SIA) dressed in the distinctive "Sarong Kebaya", SIA uniform since 1972 and remains a prominent element of SIA's marketing. Singapore Airlines' hospitality and cabin service has been recognised with awards from magazines, travel and tourism industries, including the 'World's Best Cabin Crew Service' by the Business Traveller Asia-Pacific Awards for 23 consecutive years. The long running campaign since its inception, emphasises these service aspects, featuring bona fide SIA flight attendants. The iconic images and branding of the Singapore Girl was first established in 1972 when Singapore Airlines took over as successor of its predecessor Malaysia-Singapore Airlines (MSA), the joint Malaysia and Singapore airline set up to develop and expand an intercontinental network. An earlier traditional version of the "Sarong Kebaya" uniform was first introduced by MSA and worn by the flight attendants since 1968. Subsequently, political acrimony between Singapore and Malaysia led to the split of Malaysia-Singapore Airlines. MSA ceased operations on 1 October 1972 and Singapore Airlines took over as its successor in Singapore. Initially when Singapore Airlines was created, its advertising and branding was handled by the start-up Batey Inc, of Ian Batey. Singapore Girl was coined in 1972 when Pierre Balmain, a French haute couture designer, was hired to construct and update the "Sarong Kebaya" as part of the cabin crew's uniform. Since then, the uniform has gained worldwide recognition as part of Singapore Airline's recognizable signature branding. Since 1972, the image of the Singapore Girl has appeared in advertisements in almost all media forms and promotions across the world. The theme music for the television advertising campaign was composed by Kevin Peek. As part of efforts to build the image of the "Singapore Girl", the airline runs a rigorous training program for cabin and flight crew. The airline's repute, and the resulting prestige of the job has allowed it to be highly selective during its recruitment process as it receives numerous applications locally and from around the region. Singapore Airlines used to recruit only Singaporeans and Malaysians as cabin crew, but since 1995, in line with its global expansion, recruitment extended to other countries such as ChinaIndiaIndonesiaJapanKorea and Taiwan to minimise language barriers between cabin crew and travellers. About 10% of applicants of each recruitment drive are successful and sent for training on their first steps to becoming a "Singapore Girl". Some of the strict rules and regulations for the crew from head to toe include: The airline requires flight attendants to colour their hair black or dark brown. Flight attendants cannot use highlights. Flight attendants with long hair are to coil it into buns or French twists. Male flight attendants are to sport short hair above their collar lines and sideburns no longer than the ear lobes. Fringes cannot touch their eyebrows. Eyebrows must be shaped, and cannot be fake, be it drawn-on or tattooed. Eye shadow must be of the colour prescribed by the company – either blue or brown, depending on skin tone. No fanciful, dangling earrings allowed; only studs or pearls. Lipstick colour must be among the few shades of bright red prescribed by the company. Pink or plum shades are forbidden. No chains and necklaces allowed. Only simple bracelets and rings can be worn. Only small and simple watches can be worn. A spare kebaya must be brought for every flight, including short, one-hour flights. Nail polish must be of the bright red colour prescribed by the company. Nails should not be chipped. Toenails must be of the bright red colour prescribed by the company. If toenails are unpainted, stockings must be worn as a substitute. Safety shoes or covered sandals must be worn during take-off and landing. At other times, flight attendants should wear their batik slippers. This material been used for Educational purpose only.

(28 Apr 2018) Southeast Asian countries are working closely with new powers like China and India to counter the pressures of protectionism and ensure continued growth, said Singapore's Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong. This is because the strategic balance of power has shifted both globally and in the region, he noted, at the opening of the 32nd Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Summit on Saturday. Lee said that regional economic growth was under threat because the political mood in many countries had turned against free trade. He said that recent trade tensions between the US and China, in particular, are "worrying concerns". Last month, President Donald Trump ordered huge tariffs on Chinese imports to the US including aluminum and steel. China responded with a list of US goods that may be hit with higher import duties.

English/Nat The Philippine maid convicted of murdering a colleague and a four-year-old boy in Singapore was executed Friday despite widespread protests and threats. 42-year-old Flor Contemplacion was hanged at dawn at the maximum security Changi prison. The execution has focused attention on Singapore's strict legal system and sparked widespread protests in the Philippines about alleged mistreatment of Filipinos working abroad in low-paying jobs. The execution of Flor Contemplacion took place at dawn while subdued protesters wept outside. At the vigil was her distraught former cell mate Virginia Parumog who had spent most of the night giving new statements to the Singapore police to try for a stay of execution. Parumog, who flew into Singapore yesterday, said Contemplacion had told her the boy drowned in the tub and his family killed the maid in a fit of rage. In an unprecedented display of security for a Singapore hanging, flak-jacketed police with machine guns and dogs guarded the prison gates. And police cars and motorcycles patrolled the nearby streets to deter any possible protest by the estimated 75-thousand Filipino maids working in Singapore. Shortly after dawn a van from the Philippines Embassy entered the prison, followed by a mortuary van to pick up the body. Contemplacion's lawyers has struggled until the last hours to delay the execution, claiming that there was fresh evidence to exonerate her. But Singapore refused to make concessions and rejected the new evidence. Contemplacion was convicted last April of killing another Filipino maid, Della Maga, and her four-year-old charge, Nicholas Huang, in May 1991. Contemplacion, a mother of four, claimed that she was forced to confess. A murder conviction carries a mandatory death penalty in Singapore. Contemplacion's 17-year-old daughter, a son, 21, and 15-year-old twins met her for the last time Thursday afternoon and flew back to Manila. Her husband remained in Manila during the past week. The execution went ahead despite the new evidence. Emilia Frenilla, who used to work next door to Mrs. Maga, came forward to say she had overheard conversations that suggested the boy drowned in a bathtub during an epileptic fit and his enraged family killed the maid. SOUNDBITE: September 5 1991 Mr Wong Sing Huang and my employer, they are always talking of the Filipina, same, same it is better to kill the maid. SUPER CAPTION Emilia Franilla But even a personal plea from Philippine President Fidel Ramos could not prevent the sentence being carried out. Contemplacion's plight won widespread sympathy in the Philippines, where protesters saw her as a victim of Singapore's harsh legal system. Several thousand people camped overnight in front of the Singapore Embassy in Manila. They shouted "Justice for Flor!" as the sun rose Friday in the Philippine capital. The case once again demonstrated that Singapore's strict legal system will not bow to anyone. About thirty people have been sent to the gallows for murder since 1990. Manila's papers echoed public sympathy for Flor. Back at home, Flor Contemplacion's children remained shocked as they faced the media and could say little. SOUNDBITE: It is clear that Flor and her family could have been spared from this tragedy if the Ramos regime through its embassy in Singapore and the Department of Labour and Employment did its job as early as 1991. For failing to do its task of protecting our migrant workers the Ramos regime sent Flor to her death. SUPER CAPTION: Lisa Masa, Philippines Women's group. Singapore has defended its strict judicial system, claiming Westerners do not understand Asian culture.

English/Nat A British attorney shocked a packed Singaporean courtroom on Tuesday by accusing Prime Minister Goh Chok Tong of lying on the witness stand and challenging his assertions that Singapore was a democracy. The prime minister and other members of his cabinet are suing an opposition leader for defamation of comments made during the country's election campaign last December. The trial has attracted international attention with two top British Queen's Counsel engaged for the legal confrontation. Observers from human rights groups Amnesty International and the International Commission of Jurists are also in Singapore to monitor the hearings. Singaporean Prime Minister Goh Chok Tong drove into court Tuesday morning to testify against the opposition Workers' Party chief, J-B Jeyaretnam, for allegedly defaming him. Unexpectedly, however, Goh was grilled for three hours by the defendant's Queen's Counsel, George Carman, who repeatedly questioned the prime minister's truthfulness. The tension in the courtroom was palpable with the gallery breaking out into nervous laughter at times. Carman also suggested that Goh hoped to bankrupt Jeyaretnam with his lawsuit, rendering the opposition politician ineligible to retain his parliamentary seat. Bankrupted individuals are barred from being members of Singapore's parliament. Goh rejected the accusation. He was reported to have said later that he would like to sue Carman as well but acknowledged that he cannot sue for remarks made in court. SOUNDBITE (English): "I think he's (Goh) clearly uncomfortable. He's a very accomplished politician. He managed to acquit himself well. He kept his poise throughout the whole thing. Nonetheless it was clear that the questioning was very aggressive and that it did go at the heart of the issue." SUPER CAPTION: Chris Lydgate, journalist based in Singapore Queen's Counsel George Carman is rated one of Britain's top libel lawyers. He is said to be quick on his feet and sharp tongued as well as being "both skilled and subtle in being rude". The 71-year-old Jeyaretnam faces substantial damages if found guilty of defaming the prime minister. He is one of three opposition members in Singapore's 84-seat parliament. The prime minister is represented by another top British Q-C, Thomas Shields. Issues like Singapore's version of democracy, freedom of the press and freedom of political opponents were brought up during the cross-examination by Carman. SOUNDBITE (English): "It was a very aggressive cross-examination and it seems to me that it may have gone too far in the sense that at one point, you wonder whether Carman was playing to the gallery, whether he really was doing his client any good by dragging in what you might call international perceptions of Singapore." SUPER CAPTION: Chris Lydgate, journalist based in Singapore An economic powerhouse, Singapore is run like an enterprise, with the government "suggesting" everything from who one should marry to how many kids one should have. Dissent is tolerated sparingly and opposition politicians are frequent targets of libel suits and tax evasion charges. The prime minister defended this view of democracy Tuesday, saying that Singapore put community interests above individual interests. It is a view that is seldom challenged openly within the city state. SOUNDBITE (English): "Questions about the nature of democracy in Singapore. Questions about the nature of the freedom of the press. These are very seldom covered in such an explicit manner, and I think people were surprised and a bit shocked really that it was being addressed today. And I think that's what's going to provide the drama for the coming days, and we'll see what the verdict is.
