In case you didn’t have time to read or watch the news, here is this week’s round-up of the latest happenings.

1. Oil spills across the island

Within two weeks, there were three oil spills that affected thousands of commuters across the island. The first oil spill, which occurred on Jan 29, caused massive traffic jams from the Bukit Timah Expressway (BKE) all the way to Woodlands bus interchange.

A second oil spill occurred on Feb 1, on the Pan Island Expressway (PIE) near the Jurong Town Road exit. The third (and the last, we hope) occurred just two days ago on Feb 2 at Kampong Bahru, towards the Central Expressway. All three were caused by vehicle collisions.

2. Jamie Yeo's Project Nee Soon Cares

Our writer, Ai Xuan recently caught up with popular GOLD 90.5FM radio presenter and television host Jamie Yeo to talk about her charity initiative, Project Nee Soon Cares.

The project aims to help families in need by pairing them with families who contribute care packages every month. The motivation behind her initiative is her five-year-old daughter, Alyson or Aly for short.
