Fake news, half truth or what?

SINGAPORE (June 14): Prudential’s Barry Stowe, who retired in Dec 2018, was the highest paid CEO among Singapore listed companies in 2018.

Besides being listed in London, Prudential has a secondary listing on the Singapore Exchange since May 2010.

For lifting the international financial services group’s earnings by 26%, Stowe was given a 7.8% hike in compensation to $16.5 million.

In joint second place was Oxley Holdings’ Ching Chiat Kwong and Xu Cheng Qiu, executive chairman of China Sunsine Chemical Holdings, who were paid $12 million each although Xu’s actual remuneration was still pending review by the board and had not been finalised.

Ching’s amount was about 24% lower than the year before, the property developer’s earnings were up 30.7% between FY2017 and FY2018 while Xu’s pay was up 63.8% over FY2017 as the company’s earnings grew 87.9% over the same period.

In fourth place was Dr Tan See Leng of IHH Healthcare who took home $11.9 million in FY2018, 6.7% higher than his FY2017 package. The healthcare group suffered a 35.3% drop in earnings in FY2018 from FY2017. Tan is stepping down by December this year.

Coming in fifth was Piyush Gupta of DBS Group Holdings, the most valuable listed GLC in terms of market capitalisation. Gupta saw a 15.6% hike in his compensation package to $11.9 million for 2018. DBS reported a 27.6% gain in earnings in FY2018 from the year before.

The above is from Yahoo News.

How many of you think the above is inaccurate or an elephant is missing? Masagos Zulkifli advised the public by saying this, ' Minister for the Environment and Water Resources Masagos Zulkifli has taken a stand against fake news, cautioning members of the public to check whether the sources of stories are reliable and legitimate before they share news.'

If a piece of information is inaccurate or contains some misleading information, or some missing information, the writer should at least clarify by saying that the information is incomplete and does not give a full picture of the whole truth. Like the above article, we know that some important numbers are not stated and missing, but the writer is passing this off as the whole truth.Are there people earning more than those above and not reported?

Mr RB. Aiyo, no need struggle so hard lah.

Just one dollar Ordinary bet for Toto 8.8M if there are no sharing winners and you could take home 8.8M.

No need have title CEO or MD or Mad Dog.


Chua Chin Leng aka redbean said...

For the millions of toto buyers, how many would have the chance to hit 8.8m? Even if hit, it is a once in a life time thing.

But there are many that don't have to buy toto and getting more than 8.8m every year for tens of years. Some one year may get 50m or 100m, guaranteed. These kind of people no need to wait to strike toto, no need to buy toto.

What is the passing of the POFMA for?

To protect some government-favoured publishers to deliberately spout falsehoods, half-truths, misinformation and disinformation, so as to manipulate the thinking and belief of readers towards a certain perspective, or to really curb online falsehoods and manipulations?

My take is that it is a two-way, double-edge weapon, intentionally devised in favour not of the common people but for those in power to have more power in restricting freedom of expression.

For the winning of the 1st prize in Sinkieland Toto, a punter need to place some 13.9+millions of ordinary entry to win the top prize ~ calculation based on nCr in maths.
So to win is very very super hard to win the top prize!

Hi 833 am

No point LHY asking! What is the point! Waste time!

What can you all do? If the 69.9% Ok-ed, then ok lah!

You think this $$$$$$$$$$$$$ issues can be solved if 69.9% ...49.9% at the next GE?

Dream? Good to dream!

You know as well as anybody who works in financial industry that the only reason why senior mgmt salaries of publicly listed companies are made known --- is becoz of exchange guidelines and/or regulations for corporate governance best practices.

Got any such governance guidelines or laws for those other people you thinking of?!?!?!?

If you want, you should write in to your MP or minister. Or to Shit Times --- some senior people still reads it.

@ gullible fools

Because Temasek & GIC are not publically listed, they are in no way required to do the kind of reporting the law requires publically-listed companies to do. But at least Temasek is as "trasnsparent and accountable" as it needs to be.

All these top CEO earned lovely chunks of change for their stewardship of their various enterprises. I am particularly IMPRESSED with DBS. Ihad written them off as a piece-of-shit bank, sure to fail type cos they are just hopeless...and how delighted I am to be COMPLETELY WRONG. Fuck me, they must be amongst the best banks in the world. That Indian fella has done a STELLAR job. Respect lah. 💪💪

But wait...Mdm Ho Ching...fucked up sandals and all...would beat all these CEOs in the renumeration paid to her for her performance.

Not many people know how much Our Republic paid her for her ex-spurt stewardship of The State's Sovereign Wealth Fund. *️⃣quick reminder: This money belongs to THE STATE, not to us nor the cuntry. The devil is in the details, and in this case details are all that matter.*️⃣

"Singapore Logic" is the cognitive framework on how this cuntry is run and governed. We do shit that other wouldn't have a prayer of passing public scrutiny in other cuntries. Our govt (mandated by The Sheeple) dares to venture into territory which would horrify citizens elsewhere. But fuck them all, our shit works and has "delivered the goods to ordinary people", which at the end of the day is all the HARD EVIDENCE required to shut up the naysayers.

One solid anchor in Singapore Logic is that if you want top people in govt, you have to pay them (incentivise) to be part of "The Team". Which is why Mdm Ho Ching is "compensated" fairly and justly according to the rubric of Singapore Logic.

When you check for "fake news", eventually you'll have to pass such data thru the filter of Singapore Logic.If you don't, you won't get the "right answer".🤑🤣

Aiya, you can have billions or millions.How much can you really eat a day? How much space you need to sleep on a bed?

You be surprised that Hotel Chefs tasted life time of good food that they can even vomit seeing these good food day in and day out.

You know they enjoyed their meals on simple porridge and salted fish with salted eggs.

Anon 10.55 is rite. With windfall or even those who drawed fantastic salaries can be a blessing as well as a curse.

Millionaires or billionaires with prodigal and usless children on drugs and crimes.

So so many for yourselves those rich bums children entangled with the laws and vices.

A windfall may also be a curse when with that monies, tragedies may strike when they are spolit by the riches.

Children may be pampered with fast cars and they lost their lives.

Greed steps in and family in turmoil as they schemed on one and another.

With extra cash, monkeys tend to be playful and have extra martial affairs and then Hell broke loose.

Just be contented and count your blessings that you are not worse than the others.

Real bliss in enjoying what you do when you are freed from the Worldly Affairs.

Where human beans sabo each other just for an extra dollar.

Why Singapore elites dare not let the 18- to 20-year-old citizens vote? Can serve NS and die for country but cannot vote!

Very few countries in the world bar 18-20 year olds from voting.

Indonesians can vote even from 17 of age!

@ stingy fucker, Virgo

>> Aiya, you can have billions or millions.How much can you really eat a day? How much space you need to sleep on a bed? <<

Aiyah, you missed the point lah. The majority of wealthy people are huge donors to charity. Philantropy is part of their "game". The more they make, the more they give away.

With just one post,we can concluded you are not the "giving" type. And that's ok. Up to you lah.

I especially like the way you lecture others about "morality" from your high horse of "non-charity". Keep it up! 😆

Don't bullshits lah. Ten cts also they will said want their lives is it?

I had posted b4 one of my ex-employer which I leave his company without regrets even without securing a job in b4 I left.

They are a bunch of the highest hypocrites in Sinkieland.

What's nonsense Lions Rotary Club Members of what's District District of Singapore. Prestigious Black Suits highest class charity members.

Even in funds charity donations they also made a tidy profits for themselves.

See all the Charity Shows on Media. What's President Charity and what's charitable charities shows.

Ever heard the President, the Ministers and MPs made their donations.??

Mainly the General public and those companies that their lam pars stuck in wooden horses to go into the good books of the Pay And Pay will donate.

Save for one or two like Khoo Teck Puat who donated to the Hospitals, who else the Rich donated? Last time Wealthy Tycoons more charitable like Tan Lark Sai etc.They so more so humble in non publicity.

Even now follow Hongkie style. Put their Grand Names for their donations.

You, matilah. Think not, better spend on your wine, women and songs.

Get plenty of AIDS.

@ doubting Virgo, the stingy one

Matilah. You sure the Wealthy and Rich giving lots to Charity? <<

Absolutely 1000% sure. Granted, alot of the “giving” is also related to elevating one’s social status.

>> Don't bullshits lah. Ten cts also they will said want their lives is it? <<

How do I say this politely…. It’s clear my dear Virgo, we don’t move in the same social circles. (I move in many social circles in this stratified society. In Singapore you can do well from GuanXi)

If you knew, you will confirm that most of these several-thousand-dollar-per-plate charity gala-dinners are SELL OUT events. i.e. if you are an “A-Lister” you have to be present, and if you’re present you have to buy at least two plates---one for you, one for your partner. If say,it’s $2k a plate (cheap lah), you’re out 4k already. And then the auction starts….by the end of the night many people are out 10s of thousands...but they are seen by the others as “generous” and so it’s win-win: they elevate their “social proof” and the specific charity benefits from the “generosity” of their patrons.

If you are cheapskate and dun give...lau qui lah. Lose face. Everybody knows you are a chow kah person. Got money, so kam siap type. Pui Pui...

>> I had posted b4 one of my ex-employer which I leave his company without regrets even without securing a job in b4 I left. <<

I’m not surprised. He obviously couldn’t wait for you to go too.

If you observe carefully, in every society there is a clash of ideas about the wealthy. On the one hand, they are judged as lucky and smart. Then on the other hand they are judged as corrupt, corrupting, dishonest, ruthless and inhuman.

But when it comes to charity and material contributions to society, you always find their names as the BIGGEST contributors. Some seek acknowledgement, some prefer anonymity….it doesn’t matter. those who seek acknowledgment do it for ego purposes. Those who seek anonymity...also ego purposes (they think they are “morally superior” if they choose to remain quiet. It’s the same ego bullshit lah. Please lah, you delusional motherfuckers).

The main thing is the objectivity, i.e. how much money was collected, which means “given away” by the rich, to good causes?

Remember, if you dun give, very lau qui!

Yup ... I hazarded Jinx's salary to be in the ballpark of $20M --- back in 2008. Needless to say much higher today LOL!!!

People like Good Ole Chippy certainly didn't volunteer for scrutiny out of the goodness of his heart. He only changed his mind (despite the king's ransom in salary) when Old Fart told him "Your balls are belong to me!"

/// It’s clear my dear Virgo, we don’t move in the same social circles.///

Some people's character & attitude are just damn positive & energising. You can absolutely feel the good vibes just chatting with them about the weather or traffic. No surprise that vast majority of self-made successful people have this disposition.

And then you have those whose character are just toxic & pure venom & bitterness. Even more no surprise which group Virgo falls into. LOL!!!

People, if you have a toxic character, successful people will just avoid you after 3 minutes even if you are at the same dinner table.

Who are being toxic?

The already haves and still greedy for more.

Or the less wealthy but charitable.

Really ah? If not of the hundreds of billions of CPF kena tangkap, the house of cards would have collapsed long ago. Money no enough to keep the sampan floating.

Anonymous said...

@Anon 7:49pm,

During the 1970s, 80s and early 90s the govt needed the tens & later 100s of billions of CPF as cheap loans to kickstart Jurong, Jurong Island, JTC land & factories, build HDB, build Changi Airport & SIA, develop PSA, and offer low or no taxes to foreign MNCs. Without CPF money Singapore govt won't be able to do the above.

Without cheap CPF funds we would have followed the conventional methods used by Msia, Indo, Thai, Viet, Cambodia, Burma.

But since the early 1990s govt reserves are already a few times bigger than total CPF. Today is easily at least 5X bigger.

No, SG govt does not depend on CPF today.

Hello All,

This Matilah guy thinks that he is in the league of the Upper Echelon of Society. Where he rubbed shoulders with the Elites. Had VVVVIP Classified Info.

Let me tell you that I had seen many of his kind. They are just leeches that sticks to the supposed Elites as Errand or Whipping Boy, they called.

When I was in business and entertained the business associates or clients, these parasites will stick and tagged along longing for free drinks and entertainment.

They be drinking like Goldfishes like there is no tomorrow. Ate as though they just out of prison or asylum. Then hopefully, can also have free possies to screw. That's why he loudly proclaimed and boasted that he do not pay for his screws.

These are the obnoxious kind that we can also spot in a matter of mins. Yet they want to boast that they are moving in the Socialite Circles.

One of the most shameful kind that we had came across.

8.33pm anon, u are right they don't depend on cpf alone, they also rely on over taxation and Govt charges as Govt does not create wealth. Esp on gst. So don't be an idiot and act very smart. Like other anons suggested, u need to be sodomized to wake up lar.😀

First conducted in 1981, then went into hibernation for many years, Exercise Tiger Balm, a direct SAF and USA Army Combined military exercise has started again.

To give China a clear message not to ignore Singapore's strategic importance, the exercise this year involved about 766 personnel from the US Army, whose soldiers take it as R&R to enjoy the wine, women and gambling that the sunny island Singapore can offer them.

In fact, this is not the only military cooperation between the US armies and Singapore.

The two armies have been engaged side-by-side together on several military operations, previously in Vietnam, Thailand and Cambodia; and now in the Middle-East and the South China Sea.

China, don't play play with Singapore lah.

USA, I personally attended their Psyops (Psychological Operations) Courses conducted in Taiwan. They are really good in pointing the accusing fingers to the victim (in this case China) but they themselves are the culprits. This is called Reversed Psychology.

Matilah, or are you the other type.
Conmen tagging along businessmen acquaintances or Companies Executives meeting potiental clients or entertaining businesses associates.? ?

Your myriad namecards of:-

Company Directors, Sole proprietor, MDs, CEOs. With lots of $2.00 registered or shell companies.

In meeting these so called Elites or even salarymen and women with Companies expendable accounts which they would not spend a cts to blanjar anyone. You sabok sold yourself as an welk known esteemed businessman with many diversified businesses.

Actually, many Sinkies self enployed such two dollars companies so called bosses tend to think themselves as Korean Chabo big bosses with a troupe of Running skunks and dogs walking behind them.

They are without even a ongoing assets owned Company.

Just a two dollar shelf company, they hope for some scraps of bones to be thrown at them for some business deals.

They are just servitude Commission agents running errands concerns.Having these businesses out of goodwill from their balls carrying of company salary men excecs or just paid Directors.

Then, he will simply sub sub out the jobs to third party contractors.From.there they will screamed and ranted at the sub.cons as though they are millionaire or trillion bosses. Real pity the employees of these sub cons who are at the mercy of these half bucket shits commission agents bosses.

So, Matilah thought that he is in the class of these so called Elites and pivvy to their million dollars businesses discussion and also confidential info of even the Amah wearing clothes CEO of Tubby Sick.

Even knew of how much her salaries and divends and evej bonuses
