Heavy rain expected in Singapore this weekend
Heavy rain and moderate to rough sea conditions are expected to lash Singapore between now and Sunday. The National Environment Agency (NEA) has also said in an advisory that flash floods may also occur in low-lying areas early in the afternoon if the rain coincides with predicted high tides. The advisory was issued as Singapore came within half a degree of recording its lowest ever December temperature at 10pm on Wednesday, when parts of the island registered 21.1 deg C. The coldest on record was Dec 2, 1964, when it fell to 20.6 deg C. Between 2008 and last year, the lowest December temperature ranged from 22.1 to 23.2 deg C.

Former SCDF director charged with misappropriating two iPads
A former director of technology from the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) was charged on Thursday with two counts of misappropriating iPads. Jeganathan Ramasamy, 62, allegedly committed criminal breach of trust of the $939 Apple iPad2 on two occasions in September 2011 by converting them to his own use. He is said to have given one to his daughter, and sold the other. He had obtained the two iPads from NCS. The iPads, meant for use in testing mobile applications, were delivered to his office at Ubi Avenue. Responding to media queries, the SCDF confirmed that Jeganathan was a civilian officer and his last appointment was director of its technology department. "He resigned from the SCDF on 10 September 2012," said an SCDF spokesman. "It is inappropriate to comment on the case as it is now before the courts." He is represented by Mr Sanjiv Rajan. Bail of $10,000 was offered and his passport has been impounded. The case will be heard again on Jan 16.
