For all the bad press the NEA has been receiving, they’ve been pretty prompt about addressing my concerns about mosquito-breeding in my neighbourhood.
I emailed them recently about the increase in mozzies due to the many condo construction sites that’ve suddenly appeared, and also about the lack of recycle bins in our apartment block.
They were quick to respond. NEA officers came two days later and inspected our apartment (always check the whistleblower first) and then told me that there were no dengue mosquitoes in the area, and that the bungalow next door’s swimming pool was merely used as an aquarium, and did not house any larvae, ugly as it looked with the layer of scum on top.
Fogging has been carried out regularly, and we’re pleased because of that. We certainly don’t want a repeat of what happened to Kai last May.
The NEA also informed me that the management of our condo had been compelled by law to place recycle bins on premises, and to contract a recyclable waste collector company to come and pick up our recyclable trash.
I’m happy to report that yes, there are bins, finally.
Thank you NEA! Thank you Condo Management! You should now place those bins where everyone’s maids can see. Not so good to put them in the men’s changing room.
