    Dear all,
    Not to forget that Strait Times Editor(Her name? I forgot ) for bringing up all NKF's dark secrets & put a stop to it.

    I thought that it was sort of disturbing that the scandal went unnoticed for so long actually. Even before this year, there was already voices of dissent among people over some of the practices and policies at NKF. Like the slight controversy over the construction of the new building at Kim Keat Rd, but somehow it never got loud enough. Even among my peers, I know of people who was applying for jobs at NKF cos they had heard of the perks and pay packages there. Even for the people already itself, I'm sure that they would have felt that something was wrong in the management somewhere if some of their colleague got amazing promotions and pay raises. But yet, there wasn't any whistle-blower in the organisation. Could it be that everyone remained hush-hush inside there because they were hoping that they might get the same perks themselves? If that's true, then really, shame on these employees.

    so we only can blame ourself for not working for durian during his term... wasted opportunity.

    My apology for not being clearer.

    I was referring to the concept of charity fund raising shows and making the artiste to do stunts to generate donations.

    I am glad that REN CI hospital has started the lead to do TV charity fund raising without lucky draw as bait. I have been consolidating my $$ and donating to them after being disgusted by NKF.

    However, considering that only about 30% of the funds raised will go into charity while the rest go into production cost, I think I will send them a check directly instead of calling up during the show.

    I wonder if taxes have been paid, especially the backdated increment. If so, shouldn't that ring some warning bells? Or is charity exempted from taxes?

    encashment of leave whilst the employee concerned is still in service of the cos is quite common when the employee may be involved in work where he may not be allowed to consume leave, then the employer may consider encashment of some leave or allow the consumption of leave to be deferred to a later date.
    MOM stipulates that leave can only be carried forward 1 year. Assuming she did not clear leave for 2yrs and she (Matilda Chua) encashed 151 days work of leave. Does that mean that her annual leave entitlement is 75.5 days!???

    I also cannot help but lay praises on how he managed to offer to take a lower pay but end up getting more than what he askes for! Superb negoiation skills!

    And how he came up with the idea of having charity fund raising shows with mega prizes to attract Greedy Singaporeans to call and donate in hope of winning a prize.... What a fantastic idea!! And dont forget getting artistes and patients to look as pitiful as possible to garner more funds.

    And one must not forget how ex aides and board of directors are also owners of companies that supply to NKF and in turn account for unrecoverable funds....

    One cannot stop praising Durai and the entire NKF Board.... we should be ashame of ourselves for wanting dead such a great man! In fact he should be nominated for a prize and public service medal! LONG LIVE DURAI! THE GREATEST CHARITY WORKER IN SINGAPORE
    I start the ball rolling....NOMINATIONS BEGIN

    Matilda Chua - Employee of the year 2006 (Singapore HR Institute)

    On a slightly off-topic note, just want to add on to what Wai mentioned about charity shows just now.

    Recently, I heard this conversation between aunties on the street....
    "Aiyoh, artistes in other countries can act, cut albums, dance, model and host shows. What
    can our Mediacorps artistes do? They spend so much time practising for the stunts at charity shows of course cannot do anything else lah. No wonder the tv shows all so without contents one."

    "If they can do stunts, we should be filming more kungfu dramas instead lah. If they can learn how to perform better, dun need to do stunts also can get donations one lah."
