Kiasu, Kiasi, Kiam-Siap, Chui Kong Lanpar Song!

On her "a Cheapskate's take on current issue" in Straits Times, 6 May 2008, Chua Mui Hoong wrote of "KIASU (afraid to lose), KIASI (afraid to die) and KIAM SIAP (tight-fisted) Singaporeans sacrificing the safety of their children for a few dollars more. She also wrote of employers too cheap to provide a safe form of transport for their foreign workers and of 'cheaper' Singaporeans who do not provide rest day for their maids!

If she had read Mr Wang's take on maid's day off, she would understand employers of maids have their concerns too.

The whole article is of the same old media insult of skinflint Singaporeans expecting government or someone else to take care of all their problems.

I hope Chua Mui Hoong understands "chia pah mai bway kee yau". It means when your appetite is satiated, do not forget the hungry years. So sad that when they are no longer with us, they are against us! The example she gave of $50 for safety is so 'sikit atas'. May I remind her that $50 a month increase on each child's transport to school is no small change to many families. What she wrote smells like another "Get out of my uncaring elitist face" crap!

I think Kiasu, Kiasi, and Kiam-Siap happens when
  • Town Councils' Sinking Fund increases it's Stinking Fund
  • Sovereign Wealth Funds of GIC and Temasek lends billions to USA and Europe and not a drop to poor Singaporean
  • Rich MM hanging on and not letting go
  • Rich SM also hanging on and not letting go
  • Rich MHA Minister not letting go after Mas has Selamat jalan
  • Rich MPs holding 12 directorships or more
  • Rich Ministers wanting more pay (Singaporeans' worst pain)
  • Mainstream media is nothing more than PAP's mouthpiece
Kiasu, Kiasi, Kiachenghu (scared of government) culture was engineered long ago to ensure peace and prosperity for our nation (or nation's leaders). The years of brain washing caused most to be fearful and be grateful for 3 meals and a roof over their heads! With fear comes control. With control comes power. With power, 'anything goes'! Legislations suka suka can change!

However, the 'peace and prosperity for our nation' is just a national pledge recited by most school children who do not know what they mean and whose parents are struggling like crazy to make ends meet. Even with double income families where both husband and wife work! Yes, the 'more good years' and the 'golden period' are only feel-good-wayangs staged by ministers with no meaning to it! Or are they the only ones (and their cronies) enjoying the golden good years?

Or is this another case of 'chiu kong, lanpar song'?
Which means 'mouth speaks, testicles feel good'!

Also known as NATO - No Action, Talk Only!

I guess it is true. At the end of the day, it will be ok for those expats and rich citizens who can afford.

For those who are in the bottom 20 percent of the salary chain, (where their mean income has been dropping over the past years) what alternatives are there? More 'targetted approach?". Take public bus? Change schools so that they can walk to school? See MPs where they are told to upgrade ad nauseum...

I am tired of this 'targetted approach' where those who are earning more than $1,500 faces the highest pressure in terms of price hikes all over the place!

It is true, where the govt comes in to help, we face more price hikes (means testing to help poor, ERP to help ease congestion, GST to help the poor, more buses plying leading to more China workers)

This will not work as a matter of fact, that's what I consider.
