    tpJust stop my ST for two months now. Hope this will help. Just the other day, bought a copy to see how are things, ended up wasting 90 cents.

    For those we need broad sheet size paper for wrapping, cleaning after your pets and lining the dog's kennel and other household chores, suggest you get the fat Saturday edition with plenty of news print well worth your money.

    All are not called newspaper more like PAP newslettersssss so why waste my money on propaganda and BS. We get more neutral and in depth news online without trying to brainwash the people too.

    Singaporeans are not stupid nowadays OK, SPH!
