CPF e-payment service restored

Electronic payment on the Central Provident Fund (CPF) website was fully restored yesterday, after being unavailable on Monday.

The CPF Board said in a statement that members can now use the e-payment service as a payment option for their online transactions on the CPF website.

"We would like to thank members for their patience and understanding," said the CPF Board.

It added that all other services, including AXS and Giro, were unaffected and available throughout.

Earlier this month, CPF e-services were partially disrupted for three weeks, after the website malfunctioned due to high traffic. E-services were then taken offline and restored by Dec 19.


Toppled tree at condo lands on cars

After a stormy night, some Pandan Valley condominium residents woke up yesterday morning to discover their cars damaged by a fallen tree.

Heavy rain and strong winds uprooted the old tree, which toppled onto at least five cars parked at Block 4.

A resident, who declined to be named, said the incident happened after 11pm on Monday.

She had heard a loud sound, but assumed it was rubbish being thrown down a chute.

Her car's front and back windscreen were damaged, she said.
