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.

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.

(8 Apr 2018) Singaporean Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong met Chinese Premier Li Keqiang in Beijing on Sunday to discuss economic and cultural cooperation. The two leaders oversaw the signing of two memorandums of understanding to develop working business relationships on Singaporean participation in China's Belt and Road infrastructure initiative, as well as cultural exchanges. Lee is leading a delegation of high-level Singaporean government officials on the first day of a five-day visit to China. He plans to appear this week at the Boao Forum for Asia, a Chinese-sponsored annual gathering for political and economic elites on tropical Hainan island. The visit comes as China and the U.S. exchange tariff threats in what is already shaping up to be the biggest trade battle for more than a half century. Earlier on Sunday, Singaporean Foreign Minister Vivian Balakrishnan met with his counterpart Wang Yi and exchanged remarks about rising trade tensions in a conference room at the Chinese Foreign Ministry.

Dr Chin Kian Keong, chief engineer Land Transport Authority 7. Cutaway of face of Dr Chin Kian Keong, chief engineer Land Transport Authority 8. Cutaway of books 9. SOUNDBITE (English): Dr Chin Kian Keong, Chief engineer, Land Transport Authority : "With the electronic system we can have various levels of pricing, for example, we can start at 50 cents and then half an hour later it can go to one (singaporean) dollar ($0.65 US Dollars), and then one fifty ($0.98 US Dollars) and then way up to the peak of about three dollars ($2 US Dollars). So that actually helps to even out the traffic and reduce the sharp traffic rush into the city before the pricing hours." 10. Bus pulling up to stop and people getting off 11. SOUNDBITE (English): Dr Chin Kian Keong, Chief engineer, Land Transport Authority : "The important thing is that the alternatives must be there, for example, an affordable efficient, public transport system and the option must also be there for people to pay very easily. It's more the convenience factor it should not be too inconvenient, but at the same time you must not make it too convenient that people just treat it like turning on a tap without really concern about the intent of the scheme itself." 12. Taxi driver driving 13. Close up of wheel 14. SOUNDBITE (English): Gan Hock, Taxi Driver : "Oh yes of course it is a good idea, well at least you can control the city cars" 15.

Man driving on highway, close up of digital box 17. SOUNDBITE (English): Voxpop, Driver : "You're talking about buying a car in Singapore costing a bomb, its about fifty thousand ($33,000) or 100 thousand ($66,000) to buy a car in Singapore, it's really a big sum of money but looking at ERP charges like the most three dollars ($2 US Dollars), two dollars one dollar, if you can buy a car for really that much what is a dollar or three dollars a day?" 18.

However, we are quite prosperous, we have savings, GNP per capita is not low and there is motor financing available. We are like a replacement market more." 25. People looking at cars 26.

Augustine Tan sorting out finance for car 29. SOUNDBITE (English): Augustine Tan, customer "Of course I wish it could be cheaper, but I think if the price of cars is too affordable I think, because Singapore is a small place, we would have an issue with the traffic, I don't want it to be a Bangkok, Jakarta in terms of the jams in the mornings." 30.
