This is so amusing man.. Very ClubSnap. Views get thrown around based on 1-sided report and then words get misconstrued by CS members. Tempers flare and then the moderator steps in to close the forum.
Just 1 report and some of u guys react so fervently. The whole idea is for TNP to sensationalize stories!
I don't approve of what the doc son has done but I doubt harping on the little evidence reported makes for a wise discussion. There are tons of other such stories everyday in S'pore or overseas, of divorces, quarrels, infidelity, etc. Think any social worker over here can attest to this fact. So this isn't anything really new.
news = entertainment = news
With all these yacking within the forum it will not resolve anything for the poor lady. I see that being modernise city has lost it values to respect the elders, as what the senior minister emphasizes in his speech, family values is less priority for others. And this lost of values are visible within singapore. I see young ones within bus or mrt who wont even care of giving up thier seats for older person, people who doesnt even assist senior citizens going up or down the stairs or bus.
Getting even with the son or the in-law will do nothing it will just aggrevate everything. That poor lady is being left alone, deprived from the love of his grandson just because of her social status and because of a lame reason of a stupid wife. To this poor lady, she has this job for a long time and that its just not easy for her to let go, especially to the people she had became friends on the workplace.
Altough this situation is already under the TMP, financially she may recieve monthly allowance but emotionally may be difficult for her. Even of all those hardships she endures, she still love his son and thats a motherly love not even hatred is within her. Not even his wife can gave this love to his husband. I hope his son will see this love rather than listening to his senseless wife.
To some, it may not matter today but your time will come when being old and left alone. Thats why its very important to value our family, when that time comes they will be the ones within our side. Life is being unfair but it doesnt mean that nobody care for others, rather than yacking on this forum, Lets just ask ourselves here on how can we help that poor lady? how can we help the elderly? this is only a simple questions but a difficult task.
I guess, try this :news = entertainment = $$$$$$
ok, but this seems to be the doctor side of the story, in case you missed it:
'' When contacted, Madam Tan's son, who is in his early 30s, did not dispute what his mother had said.
He said: 'At no point was the old woman coerced into selling the flat. She had told me my father wanted me to have it when I settled down.'
His wife is a senior human resource manager and the couple, who married in 2002, have a 4-month-old son.
He said: 'My wife did not like the idea of the old woman cleaning tables at the food court, especially after she had bumped into her one day, while she was having lunch with her colleagues.
'Sometimes, I feel like I'm caught between the devil and the deep blue sea. I had told the old woman to quit her cleaner job but she refused to comply. How should I approach such a delicate situation?
'She said I hurt her. Ask her, what about me? How does she think I felt when she told me through a third party that she had made up her mind to file a claim with the tribunal?'
In any case, there's probably going to be all kinds of versions.
Good luck to the people handling these domestic dispute cases. It's a nightmare anyway you choose to look at it.
Talking abt being braindead and delusional. And I've got nothing to hide to even bother jousting with u on PMs since I've got nothing against u in the first place and it seems that you are having issues with everything under the sun and ur uncanny ability to link everything to the govt instead of ur tunnelled vision. If u think that I have a personal issue specifically against u and have been hunting u down to shoot u down every single damn time, go ahead and report all my hunting posts to the admins and moderators and get me banned outright and when that's done, u can question ur own integrity (if u have any in the first place).
Stop saying till I'm like one of the 'bad guys', on that 1-liner I had back there, go and review ur past posts on this thread and everyone can see what my 1-liner was specifically for - your so-called earlier "unbiased view" against medical doctors when u had already revealed in your thoughts that you are actually viewing thru coloured lenses.

Dismissed the 'sacrifice' as something 'necessary'If given a choice of moving to the outback (and away from the hustle and bustle of the city) - I would actually.
Actually it wouldn't be a sacrifice at all.
Yet.... Your 'genetic aversion to blood' seems something u ain't willing to sacrifice yourself to for the greater good of mankind?
Gosh, on the one hand, the poor cleaner mum has to deal with her being thrown out by the son and on the other, CS members are quarreling!
Emotions are good, sure we all are humans but all the energy will be better chanelled into doing something enjoyable or fruitful. Let's make peace. It's just plain ridiculous we are arguing over other people's problem which has now become ours!
I'm not a saint but I find it too draining. Dunno how you guys can keep up. Why not everyone meet up for a coffee one day and discuss how to help the poor lady?
Okie, I'm outta this thread for good. *scary*
Oh, rumours had it that the old lady abandoned her mother before! And she is a gambler who gambled away all the money the dad left for the family... How else can she afford expensive flat when working single handedly bringing up her kid thru medical school?
