[SG Politics] Joo Chiat Resident Prefers Edwin Tong

As a Joo Joo Doll, not to be confused as Jenn Jong’s Doll, I am happy to hear that Edwin Tong is contesting as part of Marine Parade GRC set-up! Knowing that I am never a Charles Chong fan, one ought to predict that whoever PAP send in to Joo Chiat would receive my support. Well, I’d say that’s half-truth though. If it wasn’t Edwin Tong, I’d probably support Yee Jenn Jong. So why Edwin Tong? Contrary to ‘unpopular’ belief (pun intended) made believed online, Edwin Tong is quite a people-person. Let’s just say that my cousin worked in the … Continue reading [SG Politics] Joo Chiat Resident Prefers Edwin Tong

WHY SINGAPOREANS ARE UNHAPPY WITH THE GOVERNMENT? -C

To qualify, I am merely a lay man doing a decent job in Singapore. Neither am I rich nor am I suffering in poverty. But I love my country, and to me, that’s important. Looking at all the unhappiness in recent years, be it Roy Ngerng saga, Han Hui Hui, The Real Singapore or even, Amos Yee, as far as I am concerned, the Government may or may not have already realized, that these unhappiness are inevitable. Under my myopic lens, looking at the small picture, I see Governance as somewhat, parenting, and the citizens are the children. This analogy … Continue reading WHY SINGAPOREANS ARE UNHAPPY WITH THE GOVERNMENT? -C

The Online Workers’ Party Citizen -Damien Chua

The Online Citizen was thought to be more neutral than The Real Singapore. And so we thought? But if one scrutinizes the entire proceedings of the AHPETC issue, one can see how alternate media victimizes the Workers’ Party. As much as mainstream media sides MND and the PAP, if I may. But to be fair, on a case by case basis, can we really trust what TOC reports? They are basically the mouthpiece of The Workers’ Party. I am beginning to think that they are paid to do so. Some facts are that TOC has not say a single word … Continue reading The Online Workers’ Party Citizen -Damien Chua

Day of National Remembrance: Singapore flags at half-mast for Sabah quake victims -Sam Ng

This is what SMRT(feedback) wrote on their facebook status. You know what’s sickening? When parents or netizens blame MOE and the school for the disaster that happened at Kota Kinabalu; about how school field trips like these should be banned. It’s a natural disaster. No one planned for it. Field trips like these give kids an experience that no classrooms can give. Looking at the positive side, this disaster taught the kids about the feeling of losing someone they love; the act of being independent and how their survival lies solely on their will to live; about humility, empathy, and … Continue reading Day of National Remembrance: Singapore flags at half-mast for Sabah quake victims -Sam Ng

Minister Shanmugam asked Workers’ Party a good question on AHPETC

Minister Shanmugam has always been a very logical and sensible person. His questions are absolute valid which makes one wonder what really goes on at AHPETC. The High Court judgment on Aljunied-Hougang-Punggol East Town Council (AHPETC) underscores the fact that the “egregious conduct” of the Workers’ Party-run town council should be acted on, said Law and Foreign Affairs Minister K Shanmugam on Thursday (May 28). Mr Shanmugam, who also stood by his previous comment that the town council’s conduct was “unlawful”, was speaking a day after the court rejected the Ministry of National Development’s (MND) application to appoint independent accountants … Continue reading Minister Shanmugam asked Workers’ Party a good question on AHPETC

The New 10: Why The ‘Perfect’ Woman Should Always Be A Little Flawed -James Ang

The New 10: Why The ‘Perfect’ Woman Should Always Be A Little Flawed Tumblr No one is perfect — hence, everyone is flawed. What differentiates most people, however, is how openly flawed they are — how much they embrace those flaws, embrace the individuals they are, how well they understand themselves and how much effort they are willing to put into developing those flawed areas. The word “flaw” is seen as holding a negative meaning… but I’m not certain why that is. Being flawed is only natural — in fact, it’s the reason the world is the way it is … Continue reading The New 10: Why The ‘Perfect’ Woman Should Always Be A Little Flawed -James Ang
