S'pore waters affected by oil spill have been cleaned up: MPA
Operations to contain and clean-up an oil spillage in Singapore's waters following two collisions south of Jurong Island and off Marina South on Jan 29 and 30 respectively are still ongoing. However, most of the affected areas have been cleaned up, except for minor oil patches in the vicinity of the Southern Islands, said the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) in a statement on Saturday. A total of 24 craft and 120 personnel from MPA and oil spill response companies were involved in the effort. The MPA is still monitoring the situation in case there are undetected patches of oil. Response craft and personnel will remain on site in the interim. Members of the public who spot any oil patches can contact the authority's 24-hour Marine Safety Control Centre at 6325-2488 or 6325-2489.

More shops staying open over festive period
Chinese New Year is typically a time for shop owners and their staff to rest, but some businesses will remain open as they see this as a perfect opportunity to reap profits. Supermarket chains, coffee shops and even foodcourts have chosen to stay open in recent years, with many citing increases in daily takings of up to 30 per cent, compared with an average day. Even 12 out of the 18 malls along the Orchard Road shopping belt will remain open this year, said the Orchard Road Business Association (Orba). They include Ion Orchard, Orchard Central, Paragon, Wisma Atria and The Centrepoint. Coffee shop operator Kelvin Ling, 35, said he noted a 50 per cent increase in patronage over the Chinese New Year holiday period last year at his two coffee shops. He runs 128 Choices Eating House at Toa Payoh Lorong 1 and HG 106 Food Place at Hougang Avenue 1.
