OPINION: "What on earth is happening to Singapore?"

Malaysia Star, 22 Jun 2013
Woes aplenty as Singapore struggles to handle problems relating to the haze, dengue and even train failures.
There are times when Singaporeans would feel themselves lucky for avoiding typhoons, earthquakes, floods, or the feared tsunamis – the bane of South-East Asia.

At the same time, Singapore is bracing itself for the worst dengue epidemic as the number of infections this year has exceeded the total for the whole of last year.
The biggest emergency is the threatening smog.
